I am Nduka S Okoye. I receive hundreds of mail a day because of my business. I am using Thunderbird mail and I am new to it. Little unfamiliar with the Thunderbird features. Can anyone suggest how to set reminders in mail?

You might find the extension Notepad (QuickFox) helpful.

Alternatively see the ReminderFox extension Not sure it works with the latest versions of Thunderbird but it might.

I use ReminderFox instead of Lightning since my needs are minimal, its more mature (don't have to get a version that only works with a specific version of Thunderbird), and it uses far less resources. Its basically for reminder and to-do lists but it can do alerts, alarms etc. too. I've never tried that feature but ... -messages/ talks about how to add a reminder to an existing email message, or when sending one.
