I use this addon to convert my emails to the PDF annually. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the current version: the texts are cut off in the PDF on the left side, but there is a wider blank margin on the right side. I have not found a setting to change this behavior. Very annoying.

Great add-on, but would like to have some control over the actual target folder when exporting all
.messages in a folder in EML format
Currently it creates additional folders so I have to cut and paste the exported files to where I
want them. thanks for providing this extension

Added via TBird Add-Ons Manager, restarted, yet this does not appear in Tools menu. There is an 'Import' entry, but it just lets me import Becky & Outlook mailboxes.

I have 3 different mailboxes I'd like to merge into one.

Please help!

sorry for the confusion. the extension adds menus to the main menu toolbar Tools Menu as well as context menus for both folders and messages
check out to built-in help for menu descriptions

Thanks for the good addon
However, there is a problem with the import function of the .eml file.
No matter how many times you enter it, more than 450 cannot be loaded at once.
I will read 600, 700, but the actual input is 450.
Thank you

I just recently started using this add-on. I used the OPTION setting to schedule a full and automated backup ( i.e. SAVE: Always all files) and it looks like it worked fine. So I have a full backup of the profile.

I couldn't find a description of how the various settings for the backup work, so have some questions.

Question 1: I would like to get a better understanding of the SAVE option for "just files modified after the last backup." What are the files named and how are they related? I have the "automatic folder name + date" feature set.

Question 2: how would I use these backup files to restore the data in the even of a crash or corrupted profile?

Question 3: What is the "modal" window option?

Question 4: Is there a manual with more details on the various backup options and how to use them in restoring data?

Note: I'll give a higher review than 3 stars once if I can get a better understanding of the features and can further evaluate how it is working.

Note: at first glance this looks like a good and unique tool. Once I get comfortable that it works for me, I'll be making a donation.

Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

Chris, I just recovered my old Inbox and Sent folders containing thousands of emails using your add-on which worked perfectly. It took about 10 minutes to figure out after the add-on was installed. Where do I send a donation for this excellent software.

Thanks

Don't know how well this plugin works. The dialogs read like broken English.

B
I know there is never enough information but, I started adding internal help ( fully localized) did you check that out?
images a listing of all the ContextMenus as well as some option details. the extension has lots of permutations
and I agree it is not always obvious.
I would be happy to answer questions in the repository:

The extension is great when it works, but it suffers from very poorly worded descriptions and instructions, and a confusing menu layout. It is not quite as straightforward to simply export and import mail, there's a lot of strange caveats and gotchas. If you're looking to export an enormous mail account with a lot of folders, you're going to have a frustrating time.

many of your comments and concerns are very valid. improving or changing the menu system has been on my list for a while. I introduced the first integrated help for the extension focusing on menu descriptions| hopefully found that helpful.
it would be great if you had some specifics that you thought would be most helpful to improve. can you open an issue in the repository?

Looks comprehensive and certainly the export function seems to work fine. Trouble is the import does not work. I tested by doing an export of everything with structure then tried to import in a fresh copy of TB and ended up with virtually nothing added other than a folder in the wrong place :-(
Will keep exploring and will update if I succeed!
Have edited rating as seems a tad hash as I have managed to get import partially working but the folder hierarchy is lost

the import definitely works, the thing that is not directly obvious is that there are only some ways to report with structure. Can you open an issue in the repository where I can help you.
https://github.com/thundernest/import-export-tools-ng/issues
Also have you read the internal help? it is by no means complete ,but it describes each of the menu items as well as special options.

I love this add-on, for what it tries to do.
Except that for me it only works about 10% of the time.
Right now, I want to archive a 1080-message folder & after 7 attempts so far, ImportExportTools has not managed to export more than 1020. Every export seems to stop arbitrarily half or 2/3 of the way through. I can't find any reason for this.
Edit:
On the 10th attempt, I changed the destination folder (to the same disk as my TB folders) and it worked. I also slowed my Inbox "Fetch new messages" setting to 30 minutes (It's usually 5) as this seemed to be interrupting the Export process.

Great to see this back and working for the new TB releases. One of the most useful add-ons in the toolbox.

What a life saver. I have been a Thunderbird user for many years with emails going back to 2008, I was using an old HP Windows Laptop that finally had to go. I opted to get the new Macbook Air with M1 chip. Now I had to migrate from Windows to MacOS - Big Sur. I had read all the older articles on migration from one OS to another and was dreading it. I gave this add-on a try and it worked as slick as it could. I exported from the laptop to a thumb drive. Then imported on the Macbook from the thumb drive. The file size was over 14Gb. Did not loose an email or attachment. What a life saver. Fantastic add-on to say the least

Thank you very much for the very nice review!
I took over the extension over a year ago and am doing my best to keep up. it's really great to hear from users like yourself having the extension solve a problem.

It doesn't seem to be able to import the very files which it exports.

I exported my files as backups before switching my email address to a new webhost, where I would lose all my data if I didn't back it up. Those files had no extension, but they took up many MBs of storage so I know the information is there. But now the addon's import feature won't recognize the very files which it exported. So those files seem to be useless for now. I'm hoping there's a way to read them and import them somehow.

can you open an issue in the repository where we can troubleshoot this, I think you're trying to import
a backup which is a different type of file setup

It seems to be a very interesting addon but I am getting the error message: [Java script application] Because of a Thunderbird bug, the feature is not available on this platform when I try to save selected messages to PDF. I am running version 78.4.0 (64-bit) on a Mac running Mojave 10.14.6.

unfortunately PDF output 4 does not work on OS X, this is an internal limitation of Thunderbird
have not found a solution yet.
