ImportExportTools NG

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Message for TB - You HAVE to make the Extensions User interface less confusing and more easily navigable! Because your developers think "well WE know our way around it so we think it's fine" does NOT mean it's fine.
Where do I find the Config page for any particular Add-on (besides trawling the Web)?
As for RDM - It's not finding about 80% of my duplicates. I understand I have to find and tweak the Config page, wherever it is. (I used the previous one fine before having to un/reinstall TB and losing it.)
If/when I get it working properly I'll update here and add a *.
UPDATE - WHY does TB put specific Add-On settings in a completely different menu to the actual Add-On?!? Put this (also) in the Settings option ON THE PAGE FOR THE SPECIFIC ADD-ON! (FYI, they're in the main Menu: Tools: Add-on Options). Now it's done I'm upping to 5*, but I still want to know how to prioritise a Flag ("Replied") as the version(s) to Keep?

ImportExportTools

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love the app, especially as it seems to be only one of a kind.
All the same, what is really frustrating is:
1. How long the downloads take (though that could be TB or my OVH mail server). Still 5* at this point.
2. If there is a break in connection on export of the 999th out of 1000 mails, the export is interrupted, there's one mail missing, but there is also no index.html, which is a pain, as you have to start the export from the beginning again (i.e. several hours more in my case).
It needs to be able to pick up again from where the connection broke.
3. I have regularly exported a folder & got the final index.html so wiped the mails from my server, then found that the exported folder is incomplete, although the index.html file has them all listed. Clicking on a missing file gives "File not found". (I just now exported a folder of 21 mails, but the export folder only contains 5. I try a 2nd time & all 21 are there. Try this on a folder with 1000+ mails!)

Remove Duplicate Messages

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know what I would do without this!
The only improvement that would be really good is the option to "Keep" (prioritise) messages that have been replied to. That way they could remain part of a long discussion thread & not break in the middle if I've chosen the wrong one.
How do I give you money? (No PayPal link on the Add-ons page).

ImportExportTools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This tool requires a little time in testing & getting used to, but it's worth it as I now have it set up to archive all my mails into readable .eml files (along with a searchable index) in a separate folder on a different disk to my TB mail disk.
My only suggestion would be to offer a Help manual (link from the menu?).

Remove Duplicate Messages

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this because it helps & the idea is right, but I have a lot of duplicates that it doesn't find.
I cannot find any differences but there must be some, such as a few seconds difference in Received time(?) but there's no way to set any "ignore" criteria like in C-Cleaner's Duplicate (Files) Finder.

Edit: I can't reply to your reply so I will do so here -
Thanks. I was looking for the "Add-on settings" in Tools > "Remove Duplicates..." where all I got was a short list of messages.
There's no "button" in the toolbar from what I can see?
But I've just found "Options" in the Extensions > More link where I can set criteria.

ImportExportTools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best, if not the only proper mail archiving app out there, apparently. Works great, sometimes, but I find I have to try various options every time before hitting on the simple list of emails I can just open & read, outside of TB (.eml).
My problem now is that the index file doesn't write for large folders (e.g. one of 2700 mails, one of 70 mails does write). It is created but it's an empty file (0 bits). I can export an index file separately, on its own, but without the links, which defeats the purpose.

I really need this so I can find a mail quickly (email dates of course don't write to the File Explorer menu). Is there a max number of links it can write to index? Or a max file size?

***Edit: It seems the index file doesn't write when there are emoticons in any email subject.

ImportExportTools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Although the texts & instructions can be improved (in English & French, at least) this tool is just what I was looking for! "Export all messages to folder" creates a html index in the directory of my choice, where I can easily find a specific mail & open it from the adjacent folder. 5 years of mails organised, archived & easily accessible!

Si les textes et instructions peuvent être améliorés (en anglais comme en français), cet outil est exactement ce que je cherchais. L'option "Exporter tous les messages dans le dossier" crée un indexe html dans le répertoire que j'aurais choisi, où je peux facilement trouver un mail et l'ouvrir depuis le dossier adjacente. Comme ça, j'ai pu organiser et archiver 5 années de mails de façon facilement accessible.

hubiC pour Filelink

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I thought hubiC was as good as it could get, then I discovered this plugin! Professional & efficient delivery of files to clients.

I would like to see a way of editing (or removing) the heading (e.g. in different languages according to recipient), and it would be good to be able to see the upload status like the sync status in the hubiC module. But maybe I just haven't seen it.

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I don't understand why I need this to sync Google calendar & Lightning. I can put the GCal link in "New Calendar"... can't I? (I haven't tried Provider so rating 2* as I can't "not" rate!)I used this tip: http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?answer=99358#sunbird to install the Google CalDav in Lightning & it seems to be working fine in both directions. That said, Instructions, Help, config etc., in Lightning AND Google calendar are a total mess. It took me over an hour to find the above, which stipulates that it must be a https address, but other tips send you to the xml / ical / http addresses (all http). Maybe above link is for DavCal only? What's the difference between DavCal & iCal? ...&xml & html..?All I know is my calendar works across my 2 PCs, in TB and on the Google calendar site. Without Provider. (And if I used OldeCrow's 5-min rule I'd still be in 1980 ;-))

Send Later (old)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can't believe TB3 has made this unavailable!

That's not UPgrade, it's DOWNgrade.

Back to TB2 then and it' improvements on TB3.

5* for Send Later, 1* for TB3.

Send Later (old)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This function is absolutely crucial and should be cemented into TB for all time!

I WILL NOT upgrade TB as long as this does not travel with the upgrade.
