User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird

Assume I have defined an account in the past with a big/huge messages folder tree.
Currently there must be around 10000 emails spread all over these folders.
How can I find out the exact (!) number of messages?
....of cause with out adding manually all the numbers shown behind all these message folders.
As far as I am aware you can't do that without adding up the folder counts. Because Thunderbird stores the messages in each folder in a separate file, the total number of messages in an account is not relevant as far as Thunderbird is concerned.
Look in the lower right corner of the main window. It displays the number of messages in the currently selected folder. You can also click on the weird little square control at the far right of the column header for the folder pane (just to the right of "Size") and select "Total".
If you want a total message count for your entire profile and have too many folders to total the individual message counts, create a saved search folder per http://kb.mozillazine.org/Saved_Search that includes every folder in every account. That virtual folder will have a message count that equals the total number of messages in your profile.
From that ^ "tbstats...." link, Lee mentions another extension that may suit.
Never used it so....?

I tried installing tbstats (the sourceforge add-on) and got a error about it not being compatible. I edited the install.rdf file in the *.xpi file using 7-zip to set the minimum version to 28 and the maximum version to 50.*. Installing it added a tools -> statistics menu command. Works fine. I have 3550 messages.
You could also try installing the disable add-on compatibility checks add-on and then ignore the warning (its not a error) when you install tbstats.
Cool. Is there a way you could post that modified version, so others could use it?
Thank you, but TbStats does NOT cumulate the number and the size of messages of each corresponding message folder tree.
Its only flat counting
Not very useful.
