The error message
Initial installation of add-on was unable to create any filters, regardless of
the method attempted. Every attempt created message as shown in attached screen
Problem turned out to be caused by an over-aggressive sanity test which
triggers the exception if any account in the system has an empty email address.
I found one account (unused leftover from initial learning curve for TBird) in
Removing that account entirely solved the problem.
Just to clarify in your case the application shows an error message:
"Exception in quickFilters.Worker.createFiler: idMail is null"
this is caused by an invalid account or account that has no from email address
and no reply to address. I will post a bugfix shortly.
