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!

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.

None of the 10.x releases show in Tb 68 menus. 4.1.0 works.

Please report problems the repository not the reviews.
I can help you there,68 should be working well.

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.

The plugin is pretty good as it is, but it could be better. What I (and I'm sure others) want to do is export all of my messages and attachments in all of my subfolders and their subfolders from my Local Folders (or folders/subfolders/messages from any email account). I can do this, but I cannot then choose the file format. So, it would be good if I could choose the file format regardless of where I'm exporting from. If I choose the default format (not even sure what that is) it is basically unreadable. Oh, it shows up in a web browser or a text editor, but it is unreadable and looks like, although I haven't dug into this too much, the attachments are coded into that text. Oh, and selecting multiple folders only exports the messages in those folders, not their subfolders. The way it works now is extremely time consuming to get all of my messages from either folders under Local Folders or any email account. Yes, I do know that I'm being recursive here. It's such a tiny little box to type in.

Works great with Thunderbird 78.3.2.
But how do you get a keyboard shortcut directly to save the selected emails such as:
to save selected messages - EML formats?

Thanks for your help

It works fine, but I have a problem with text codification, on function IETconvertToUTF8. I changed the code to the earlier version and works fine. Please check that function.
It is a very a powerful tool. Congratulations.

Always surprised Thunderbird has no built-in backup service. This add-on does a good job although it has had me scratching my head at times. I feel it could do with some simple to understand instructions on how to do various tasks. I think I am fairly tech-savvy but have had trouble understanding how to make it do what I wanted it to do. the two task I want it to do are 1. Backup all my email profiles, addresses, settings passwords etc. 2. Backup my actual emails incrementally, so should I crash my operating system and need to reinstall then I can get all my accounts and emails back without much aggro. But overall this add-on is indispensable to me glad to see it has updated. Thank you.
