Sehr gutes, umfangreiches Backup-/Restore-Addon. Funktioniert in meinem deutschen TB 68.6.0 (fast immer) einwandfrei. Auch Mail-Anhänge werden perfekt gesichert und wieder hergestellt.

Es gibt Situationen, bei der die Anzeige nach einem Restore von Ordnern und Unterordnen nicht automatisch aktualisiert wird. Man glaubt im ersten Moment, dass die Unterordner fehlen. Ein Neustart von TB hilft dann aber immer.

Thanks for the nice review!
I believe the issue you are seeing has to do with database updates that also affect UI. there are several issues with large imports that are also probably related. I have been working on them the background without luck yet!

I hoped to use this add-on to import profiles from Windows 7 T-bird 68.0 to LinuxMint 19.3 T-bird 68.4.1. Compatibility to T-bird 69.* is claimed. There is NO Import selection I can find in the Linux version. Neither could I find a bug report link so I'm making the problem known here.

Sorry for the confusion. Could you move this over to the repository where we can interact? That will help us solve your issue together:

Also just briefly, I have both users and myself using Mint with success . For importing profiles, the option under the main Tools menu at the bottom of the menu has the IET Menu. Just above options at the bottom are the import and export profile options. I was just running And looking at that on Mint

Excellent tool. I used it to migrate a complete Thunderbird profile (multiple POP3 and IMAP accounts as well as custom addressbooks) from Windows to Linux. This worked flawlessly!

Thanks ! very glad it's working for you lots of changes to keep up with!

Ein super Tool für das Handling mit mbox-Dateien und das erstellen von einfachen geplanten Thunderbird-Backups.

Essential tool for offline archiving & classifying 10,000s of easily-accessible historic e-mails.
Suggestion: Add a "Cancel current operation" option in the menu! I've just launched an export of 10,000s of mails & realized suddenly it's the wrong folder, but can't stop it.
Also "Pause/Continue current operation" would allow us to do other work in-between exports.

Hi Christopher, I just discovered this addon but I miss a functional combination of its great possibilities: export all messages of a folder and its subfolders (hierarchical) in *.eml format. It would be a great thing if you could add this feature.
Best regards and much thanks!

Thanks for the review!
I actually have this as a possible enhancement. You can track it here:

This is a sensible addition I just have to try and find the time after all the bugs coming in!

Thanks for doing all the work to keep this wonderful add-on available in the newer releases of Thunderbird

This is a robust and useful tool - I've been able to import mac emails, M$ outlook emails, contacts, calendars, notes and tasks. And it is free!

Thanks for the very nice review!
I am trying to keep up with all the changes, it's great to hear from users like yourself having a good experience.

This is an excellent add-on for Thunderbird. Quick, easy to use, and effective. The ability to save multiple emails to PDF files directly from Thunderbird save time.

When exporting to PDF I have ImportExportTools attach the date to help me catalog the emails.

It would be helpful if there is a customization for the format of the date.

As an example, instead of YYYMMDD it would be helpful to have a space so the date displays as YYYY MM DD to make it easier to read.

Otherwise, a terrific add-on.

Thank you.

Thanks and HappyNewYear!
Actually I also have a request for iso format, you can see the issue post here
I can probably add this third option at the same time.

Hello together.
I export my complete Gmail account for offline usage and backup. I test some MBOX Viewer programms and don't like most of them. As I've heart that TB (68.3.1) can work with MBOX, I was really exited but now I can't load the MBOX file in, maybe someone can help: If I click on MBOX import, nothing happens. I can't choose files or sth else. Will be great if you have an idea, how to solve this problem.

Thanks for the review, sorry for the confusion!
I am trying to find time to make a user guide which never existed with the
original extension one I took it over. Currently I have a set of issues
in the repository that will ultimately make up to guide. I have one
For the menus and one the basics of mbox import.
You can also ask questions in the repository by creating an issue.

Hopefully this gets you going, if not post a question.
Happy New Year's!

Works fine with TB 68. Thank you for continuing Paolo's excellent work.

Thanks for the review, happy new year!
doing my best to keep up the work, some issues with 68
glad things are working for you

Won't install under the TB version I use currently - 72.0b2. It doesn't have a way to install addons from *.xpi files

Thanks for the review, happy new year!
Right now 4.0.4 is only meant to be compatible with 60-69 current releases (shown in the header)
I am currently still working on various issues for 68.
72 is beta leading up to 78 ESR. That will require major changes.

Very glad this extension is continuing. However, I can't seem to find a way to export to .CSV and have the message come as plain text instead of HTML. I used to use this in a workflow and now cannot find out how to repeat the export format i used to use.

Happy New Years!
Thanks for the review. Fortunately I already have a beta for this issue. If you wish you can download the beta file.
See the prior issue, the beta pointer is at the end.

obviously I misunderstood.
The point was that I am not sure what to choose because of the many options. Here less would be more and a help would be necessary.
Up to now I secure my Thunderbird with the old MozBackup, unfortunately this is not being developed any further and seems to have problems with the IMAP accounts that are common today, so that sometimes curious problems occur when importing to the other PC. ImportExportTools NG should be similarly easy to use.
PS: exporting whole folders in various formats is a very useful option.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

I am hoping to get a basic user guide out before too long given the many options you refer to. If you are looking to do something similar to MBackup then probably the most appropriate use would be to export your profile. That option is available when you choose IETNG from the tools menu. As far as exporting whole folders, you can choose the context menu and choose the various export options.
I am also going to comment on the options in the overview.

This is my number 1 addon. Thanks a lot to Christopher for taking this addon over, So much so that I was hesitating to upgrade to 68. Using this addon, I immediately and systematically move my important emails to folder and subfolders where they belong in my documents. My email accounts are always emptied.

Thank you for the very nice review! My work for the Thunderbird team's voluntary so the reward is interested and happy users. Happy Holidays ;-)

Hello, CORRECT FOR « This derivative add-on is the update of the original work of Paolo "Kaosmos", ImportExportTools.
The add-on is being updated for Thunderbird 68 (and 60) so that users can continue to enjoy the
functionality of this great add-on.»
but it is necessary to make settings in
« tools > import / export ... > Options »
I use Thunderbird 68.3.1 (x32)
Best regards and great continuation

Thanks for the review!
I want to understand clearly your suggestion. I think you are recommending that I mentioned that there is an options page for configuration? I agree and I am also trying to find the time to write a short user guide.

Mac OS 10.13.6 / Export im PDF-Format funtioniert nicht:

Wegen eines Fehlers in Thunderbird ist diese Funktion bei diesem Betriebssystem nicht verfügbar.

happy New Year's, sorry for the delayed response.
Currently there is a Thunderbird bug regarding PDF output on OS X. The original as well as NG disable PDF output for that reason on OS X. I am aware of the problem but no solution yet, stay posted.
