<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<div style="text-align: left;">address Context is an extension designed to speed up the process of adding email addresses to the address book in <a
 href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/">Mozilla Thunderbird</a>. It adds an entry to the context menu that allows you to choose between:.<br>
<ul>
  <li>
    <span style="font-weight: bold;">Add Senders/Recipients as Cards </span>-Adds the senders or recipients of all selected messages to the address book, presenting a dialogue window for each sender to allow customization. 
  </li>
  <li>
    <span style="font-weight: bold;">Add Senders/Recipients as List </span>-Adds the senders or recipients of all selected messages to the address book to a new Mailing List entry. Further, since mailing list entries are really Address Book subdirectories, will add the recipients to the main address book, as well. 
  </li>
</ul>

<p> College has a way of getting in the way of development - but a new version of addressContext has finally been posted. Thanks tons to Francois for helping me test out the new remove-duplicates feature. New in this version:
<ul>
  <li>addressContext is fully localizable now</li>
  <li>Automatic removal of duplicate entries</li>
  <li>Large-list optimization (though lists over 2000 emails still might take a minute or so)</li>
  <li>Minor bug fixes</li>
  <li>Thunderbird 1.0 compatibility</li>
</ul>

And a To-Do list (please email me at mikekrieger [at] gmail [dot] com if you have any suggestions):

<ul>
  <li>Make addressContext hook into the Thunderbird new card/list dialogues, instead of using its own copy - so that new versions of Thunderbird (theoretically) won't break aC.
  <li>"Add to current list" rather than always having to create a new one</li>
  <li>Visual display of progression when adding large lists, to avoid an apparent Thunderbird hang when aC is working</li>
</ul>
