I really like the RSS feature in Thunderbird and I want to make it even better

Every RSS comes with an internet site, could there be a Pocket button to "save page to Pocket" like in Firefox?

It should be nice if you can

Best regards

Thanks for the 32 bit T-bird 102 install, but I was functionally happy with the prior version. Not aware that I'm unhappy with 102 -- with one exception, so far.

Please, no aggregation of "threads" ("subject lines) in the index listings by subject -- ordered by with the original subject "date".  I often -- usually -- first look for emails by (general) date -- the LAST date of the last email -- that may be months later that the original date at the start of the thread (we're not texting here, are we?). Please provide the ability to toggle -- back and forth -- between both orderings (if that doesn’t already exist). I do expect to entirely lose the ability to find some email with the current “aggregated” system. Can I not toggle to a completely “date ordered” listing?

I would very much welcome an ability to upgrade all 32 bit versions to newer 64 bit versions -- keeping 32 bits (for known territory) until 64 bits are stable, fully learned and fully productive -- especially with LibreOffice (would like to keep both for different key strokes).

Mucho Thanks,

Hi Jui Pin, in the meantime you can forward any RSS article directly to Pocket by sending it to via one of the email addresses you've associated with your Pocket accounts - not as convenient as a share to Pocket button, but does the same.

RSS is great - but it's not email, and doesn't need to be integrated into an email client. Email is inherently two-way, personal, private. RSS and the web are public and one-way. These very different modes of communication are best kept clearly separate.

Personally, I use Usenet, ftp, Discord and other communications apps - but I have not the slightest wish to see them taking up space in my email client, or potentially compromising its security.

If you're using thunderbird to pull your RSS feeds (as I do), then can't Thunderbird itself keep those references as a to-read for you? Why use one application to manage the subscriptions just to forward them on to another application?

If you integrate such feature, please be more flexible than just pocket. There are a lot of read-it-later-clones like wallabag, ...

@flybirdis just perfectly right! Also:
