Experience with ImportExportTools (IET):
E-Mails exported from mail-folders in Mbox-Files.
New Installation of Thunderbird.
Attempt to reimport mails with IET fails with message:
"Reimport to this folder is not possible:
Probably it is a folder of an IMAP-account or a newsgroup".
In fact it is the same folder from which the mails were exported.
Effect of application or IET: Loss of all exported mails!

please post any issue in the repository:
https://github.com/thundernest/import-export-tools-ng/issues
I think you need some help understanding the use of the extension. if you exported successfully you have not lost any.

Either I have not set up or chosen correct output options or this does not do what I thought it should do from description. I want to export email contents in separate CSV files (each line separated by commas hopefully) not just the headers of the emails.

While I can export a folder, this add on wipes everything off of the original server. When I try importing, I can't import all folders including sent, all mail, and starred.

I used this add-on some time ago to import an .mbox file (downloaded from gmail). Now I've updeated TB to 87.0b2, the add-on doesn't work anymore, and I cannot import new files. Do you know any solution for this problem?

Why is there only 25 emails from each folder being exported when there is more? I am prepared to pay for a version that does ALL emails, but cannot find anything regarding a registration. Added on the 16th March 2021: My mistake, the MBox files were created by a free product and not a full version, only saving 25 emails from each folder, did not know this at the time as these MBox files were sent to me by a family member. Have notified the family member about this as he was not aware of this either. Once he registered the program that created the MBox files, everything worked perfectly with the ImportExportTools NG, very pleased.

P
No, you should not have to pay anything!
can you post to the repository where we can diagnose ?

I use this to make automated backups of my profiles and it works well. However I make the backups to a shared drive. It would be great if the backups could be encrypted.

I needed to convert several EML files into one MBOX file, and this did just that. Thank you!

I'm looking for ImportExportTools NG users that are using the AUTOMATED BACKLUP feature and in particular users that have selected the INCREMNENAL backup feature.

Background: I've been using the automated FULL backup feature for a while and it works well but I'd like to find some users of the INCREMENTAL feature.

You can reply here or on the Groups.io forum. Here is a link:

After some problems due to a bad configuration on my computer and with the precious help of Christopher, the module works perfectly. I can now import from live mail and save my message folders.
Thank you for your help.

thanks for the review, this is really a potential issue.
if you could post the problem in the repository can go back and forth so that I can help you. if you can also identify the extension versions you have tried. usually this indicates a bad file possibly.

I use this addon to convert my emails to the PDF annually. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the current version: the texts are cut off in the PDF on the left side, but there is a wider blank margin on the right side. I have not found a setting to change this behavior. Very annoying.

Great add-on, but would like to have some control over the actual target folder when exporting all
.messages in a folder in EML format
Currently it creates additional folders so I have to cut and paste the exported files to where I
want them. thanks for providing this extension

thanks for the review! I am not sure if you are refereeing to the attachment folders ?

Added via TBird Add-Ons Manager, restarted, yet this does not appear in Tools menu. There is an 'Import' entry, but it just lets me import Becky & Outlook mailboxes.

I have 3 different mailboxes I'd like to merge into one.

Please help!

D
sorry for the confusion. the extension adds menus to the main menu toolbar Tools Menu as well as context menus for both folders and messages
check out to built-in help for menu descriptions

Thanks for the good addon
However, there is a problem with the import function of the .eml file.
No matter how many times you enter it, more than 450 cannot be loaded at once.
I will read 600, 700, but the actual input is 450.
Thank you

D

Chris, I just recovered my old Inbox and Sent folders containing thousands of emails using your add-on which worked perfectly. It took about 10 minutes to figure out after the add-on was installed. Where do I send a donation for this excellent software.

Thanks

thanks for the very nice review!
very glad it helped you, I still have to get more time to more help

Don't know how well this plugin works. The dialogs read like broken English.

B
I know there is never enough information but, I started adding internal help ( fully localized) did you check that out?
images a listing of all the ContextMenus as well as some option details. the extension has lots of permutations
and I agree it is not always obvious.
I would be happy to answer questions in the repository:

The extension is great when it works, but it suffers from very poorly worded descriptions and instructions, and a confusing menu layout. It is not quite as straightforward to simply export and import mail, there's a lot of strange caveats and gotchas. If you're looking to export an enormous mail account with a lot of folders, you're going to have a frustrating time.

Cette critique concerne une version précédente du module (10.0.2). 

B
many of your comments and concerns are very valid. improving or changing the menu system has been on my list for a while. I introduced the first integrated help for the extension focusing on menu descriptions| hopefully found that helpful.
it would be great if you had some specifics that you thought would be most helpful to improve. can you open an issue in the repository?

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!
Have edited rating as seems a tad hash as I have managed to get import partially working but the folder hierarchy is lost

Cette critique concerne une version précédente du module (10.0.2).

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.

I can help you there,68 should be working well.
