this is kind of dangerous!
I selected ~100 Mails and wanted to extract the attachments.
1. No dialog appeared.
2. The Attachments were marked as deleted and i have no access to them
But:
3. The message-size hasn't changed, so the attachments are still there.

So I hve no attachments, and no size-reduction of my folders
And NO CHANCE TO DO THAT IN FUTURE!

No es util, y peligrosa, borra los archivos al extraer y no es capaz de procesar lotes grandes de correo. Se bloquea. no Sirve.

Almost perfect, a couple of things to fix.
1. when an attachment has the pound sign # in its name, it does not download it nor continue with the following files.
2. when lots of files are selected it does nothing.
3. when several files are selected you can´t see the cancel button, so i have to pres Esc key and I feel a little nervous because delete button is very easy to press by mistake.

Dangerous and unuseful and make mess. Ok, it work and you can extract attachments. But this add-on make a copy-email of the every message: original, but also same email with "deleted attachment". If you have hundred mails, after use you will waste many days delete this mess away.

Do not use this add-on.

Is it possible to automate the extractor task ?
(Thunderbird version : 91.10.0 - 64bit
Attachment extractor : 1.4)

Thanks for your help !

This is Far better than dragging and dropping, or clicking and confirming, each individual email. It's bare bones, but it works.

There is a warning before deleting attachments from emails to help avoid that faux pas. Make sure to hit Cancel. I once did not pay close enough attention, and my emails were duplicated with some of the duplicates retaining the attachment (thank goodness), but not all.

It works well for me as-is. The only extra I ask for is the ability to set my own naming parameters as the default, rather than the program's options being there every time. I'm willing to pay that small price, though, for the overall convenience of the add-on.

P.S. I found a workaround: First I sorted my mails such that only those with attachments were on top. Then I selected them month by month, sometimes two months at once, and could delete attachments from these batches. It worked up to a max. of 62 selected messages.

It was inconvenient, but I could finally reduce my Sent folder from 3 GB on the hard drive to some 150 MB. Best would be if TB supported multiple messages with its own Extract/Delete Attachments dialogue.

As for many other users here, it doesn't really work (macOS, TB 91.9.1). I want to DELETE attachments from hundreds, possibly thousands of emails from my Sent folder (on my local drive, no IMAP). As soon as I select more than ca. 50 or so messages, AE either does nothing (with also no error message) or crashes TB.

The plugin deleted all attachments from my selected mails. It was in IMAP (Web version of Gmail, deleted attachments too) How to retrieve them ? It's dangerous to use this plugin

When I extracted the attachment to the desktop, all the files that were on the desktop disappeared.
They are no longer visible even after data recovery.

Leider scheint es immer nur mit einer E-Mail zu funktionieren, wenn man mehrere markiert, dann löscht es von einigen Mails die Anhänge, macht jedoch Kopien von Mail Dateien, in denen dann noch einmal die Anhänge komplett anhängen.
Auch nervig, dass man jedes mal wieder alles auswählen muss.
Im Moment noch nicht wirklich zu gebrauchen, hoffe auf die nächste Version.

Works a treat!
Despite some other reviews, this worked perfectly for me (I'm using version 91.7.0)
There is some room for improvement (e.g. if the list of attachments is too long, the 'OK' or 'Cancel' buttons fall off the end of the screen and you can't access them. This is easily remedied by selecting no more than about 30 mails at once. The add-on gives you the option of deleting the attachment from the mail or not, so there's no fear of losing data if you want the attachment retained in your mails.

As commented before, it is not perfect, but I am glad someone picked up the torch and is at least attempting to keep something available.

This is still not the old perfect version, but having someone that work on it so we can keep on using this wonderful tool is priceless !!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH !

This is ridiculous !
This addon tried to REMOVE (detache) attachments from the selected emails !!!!
How can one imagine this is useful, let alone set this as default behaviour of the software ?!?
I *don't* want to detach attached files from emails, I want to save them on disk, in bulk if possible.

Trying to bulk extract the attachments, this addon duplicates the email with the attachment in place. Unfortunately this is not what I expected.

This Attachment Extractor addon gives an error message. Is there any way of contacting the developer to report the message?

I echo the sentiment of the other reviewers missing the original Attachment Extractor (or the Continued version) and have a separate installation of Thunderbird v68 that still runs that addon.

I appreciate the effort behind such developments. Unfortunately, the add-on is of no use to me - the attachments are all saved as defective PDFs (several test runs; fortunately tested before serious use!). In addition, the shortcut link that TB creates when separating with on-board resources would not work here... too bad

The original AttachmentExtractor was far more better because it extracted automatically and save it into a folder one could define.

This one is just a little more than the default of TB.

The tool deletes attachmants without asking and duplicates the email (sometimes!). Why?.. I selected 15 emails and 23 (15 original emails + 8 duplicates).

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I chose for deleting the attachment, your program duplicates the mail of the deleted file. The duplicate is again with attachment. Am I doing something wrong?
