When I receive an email in thunderbird I know I won't read (an advertisement for instance), that should be useful to delete this mail directly from the notification that appears on top of the screen (see this screenshot showing such a notification)

Delete would be great and, in addition, mark it as junk!

I think the gmail notification pull-down options on ios are an excelent starting point. It has the delete option, an option to mark as read (i personally like to mark financial stuff i want to keep in my email for records as read without opening them), and theres also a shortcut to reply to the message which im sure is useful to someone.


here is [a screenshot of a gmail notification with the pull down options]( (uploaded to my matrix homeserver's media repo)

All my mail basically either gets flagged, marked as read, deleted, or moved to a "reciepts" folder (and marked as read). So custom options for what to do from notifications would be amazing especially if you could trigger a custom rule that does multiple things. Granted that's probably a little out of the scope of this specific idea, but it would be cool.

Great Idea! Since I switched away from Apple Mail and Outlook the only feature I really miss is the quick delete button on every mail in the preview column.


Also "mark as junk" as kintrupf mentioned would be nice to have, too.

Would love this.

Making moves

Now that work is on Outlook, I'm definitely wishing for this feature in TB

To be able to delete thunderbird mail message directly from the pop-up notification
Dear developers, first of all thank you very much for your efforts making excellent this superb E-mail client.
One idea that I guess will have a lot of acceptation due to massive unwanted E-mails that we receive every day (even with the training technologies against SPAM) is:
To add a button of "delete E-mail" (and/or "mark as SPAM") directly in the pop-up notification that appears when we receive an incoming E-mail message. This "stupid" thing will save a lot of time for the daily users (avoids to minimize the current task, go to open the client, search where is the new E-mail, do the action, minimize again, search the previous app where we where working try to regain the concentration... this process is repeated daily for every unwanted E-mail that in a single day may increase to 20-30 times).
Thank you very much for your consideration.
