<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<div style="width: 80%;">
<p>The<strong> AttachmentCount</strong> extension allows for instantly viewing
   of the number of attachments in a message by adding a column to the thread
   pane. Text attachments may be quickly previewed. Please see
   <a href="/screenshots.html">Screenshots</a> for a preview.</p>

<h3>Installation:</h3>
<p>
  <a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/attachmentcount/AttachmentCount-2.3.xpi">
  AttachmentCount v2.3</a> (Tb 45.0+)</p>
  <a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/attachmentcount/AttachmentCount-2.0.xpi">
  AttachmentCount v2.0</a> (Tb 38.0 - Tb 44.0)</p>
<p>
  <a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/attachmentcount/AttachmentCount-1.7.xpi">
  AttachmentCount v1.7</a> (Tb 22.0 - Tb 31.*)</p>

<h3>Requirements:</h3>
<p>Thunderbird 22.0 or higher.</p>

<h3>Features:</h3>
    AttachmentCount adds an optional column to the thread pane showing the
    number of attachments in a message.  Use the thread pane columnpicker to
    select the Attachment Counts column and then drag it to whatever position
    you like.<br/><br/>
<ul>
  <li>If there is only 1 attachment, an icon will be shown for its contentType
      or file extension.</li>
  <li>If all attachments are deleted or detached, an appropriate icon will 
      shown.</li>
  <li>The pref <i>alwaysShowCount</i> may be changed to show the number rather
      than an icon.</li>
</ul><br/>
    The status icon of an attachment is updated automatically on an attachment
    detach/delete.  A shift-click twice on the column header may be performed
    to refresh the counts/status - for messages in the visible rows only. You
    may also click on the column row to refresh an individual message.<br/><br/>

    Set the pref <i>AttachmentCount.logging.console</i> to <i>debug</i> or <i>trace</i>
    to see details of the mime parts of a message (on shift-click or icon click
    refreshes).<br/><br/>

    <b>IMAP:</b> In order for IMAP message attachment counts to be calculated,
    the message must be downloaded if it is unavailable locally.  The pref
    <i>downloadPrefs</i> contains a string with download options.  The defaults
    are to download and calculate, and as this is asynchronous there should be
    little delay effect even for large attachments.  If this is undesired, the
    <i>imapAllowDownload</i> value may be set to <i>false</i> and
    <i>imapPartsOnDemand</i> value may be set to <i>true</i> in the pref string.
    Instead of counts, the generic attachment icon will be shown instead.<br/><br/>

    <b>NNTP:</b> The api used to get attachment counts is not available for
    newsgroup (NNTP) attachments, so counts aren't available.<br/><br/>

    <b>Preview:</b> A simple preview has been implemented for single attachments
    in the thread pane, without the need to select the message. Hover the icon
    to show a preview of approximately the first page in a tooltip. The active
    icon is highlighted.</br></br>
    Preview is available for attachments with a contentType starting with text/
    or other text equivalent contentType, or starting with application/ and
    having several known text contenType values. Users may add custom
    ContentType values in the pref <i>previewContentTypes</i>. Attachments that
    cannot be previewed will display the filename and contentType only. Note
    that non-text or binary attachments will currently not preview,
    regardless of adding an unsupported contentType to the preference.</br></br>
    For messages with multiple attachments or non previewable attachments, the
    tooltip consists of a summary display with filename, contentType, and
    detached file path or remote url for each attachment.
