About this Add-on
188.8.131.52 doesn't really fully work with Thunderbird 5-8 - there are a number of errors thrown and its probable that some functions won't work but there was a large demand for an update and this was the quickest solution.
I've rewritten large parts of the code in 1.4 but there are some features missing so its not been released yet. Its available as a beta in the Development Channel below if you want to give it a try. As your preferences are migrated in 1.4 you will loose them if you decide to go back to an older version afterwards.
Just select the messages containing the attachments you want to extract and select 'Extract Attachments' and this extension does the rest. No more having to go through each message to extract the attachments!
Check out the settings dialog for the different options.
After you've used AttachmentExtractor for a while please come back and write a review.
If you find any bugs, or want to request a new feature please use the bugtracker on my website. Use the feedback form on my website(in the 'contact me' section) to ask me any questions - asking a query or mentioning a bug in the discussions section is less practical because I'm not going to be able to answer unless I happen to check here.
