This is a _very_ much needed feature in my case. I receive lots of emails being automated build-reports, manual bug-reports from testers and customers, questions/answers and/or return-questions on technical problems and a whole lot other issues to be worked on by me. While I can mark any one of these mails with one of the 5 labels, that thunderbird allows me to customize, to associate some sort of state or action - this is manytimes not sufficient. When I have a message selected or open, I want to be able to associate a simple comment or notice, which would allow me to store detailed informations (about the state or resolution, or about references etc.) along with the mail.
I think this bug should be fix. Sorry I'm too busy now to add comments.
the TB-extension "MessageNotes" is good enough to solve the most imminent requirements for me; even though, this is not a perfect solution yet, I'd be fine with closing this issue
Created attachment 213342 [details] The extension "MyStickies" for Firefox The extension "MyStickies" has a peace of what I need : the graphical look. But what I need look like the adobe Acrobat. Maybe this extension should be adaptated to Thunderbird & the starting point of work ? Please, see comments in the extension page https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=1875
tabbing for thunderbird 3 so we don't forget to discuss it when we start going through thunderbird 3 work.
Target Milestone: --- → Thunderbird 3

Note that the new apple mail.app propose a behavior for this functionality : we should see what they've done and what we need. If weave become a reality for Tb too the behavior we'll choose may be impacted.
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: PC → All
Summary: Add notes (like post-it) like in Adobe Acrobat, or MS office (PowerPoint) → Add notes (like post-it) like in Adobe Acrobat, MS office (PowerPoint) or Mail.app
While I can see the need for "commenting" on individual e-mails, this bug is unrelated to what I need in a "Notes" feature. In case others here are interested, there is a bug for that: bug 116945 (incredibly, it's WONTFIX)
I would like to be able to add a post-it type not to an incoming email as a reminder for the future.
