I love this add-on -- simple idea yet powerfully executed. Makes it so simple and easy for me to save emails based on topics/clients/suppliers etc. And I can choose in what format -- but I like using txt and attachments. A particularly important aspect to me is the ability to customise the filename and attachment folder for each email...so I have them all timestamped and can see a full history of my email communications with a client. Then I can keep my inbox clean and not taking up too much space.

A recent update from thunderbird caused a small issue in the output txt files, but the main developer for this fixed in within two days of me registering the bug -- awesome response!!

Highly recommend this add-on for anyone wanting to store all their emails on disk and keep them in order - and viewable for many years in the future.

Thank you for the very nice and detailed review!
It's always a pleasure when users appreciate all the work that goes into these extensions.

In using this program, I found that it was dropping some emails, so I contacted the developer Chris. After lots of back and forth, we determined that some of my emails showed as NAME.eml whereas some others showed as NAME._eml. No idea why, but the latter ones didn't copy.

I figured out a rather cumbersome DOS solution, but Chris took the initiative to tweak the program to allow it to import them automatically. I tested the beta version which worked like a charm.

When you have as many emails as I do, a program like this is a life saver.

Great add on.

Many filename customisation options.
Many filetype export options.
Dev is proactive & super responsive.

I have an issue with the import of an .sbd directory.
The MBOX files contained in the .sbd are individualy imported, but not the .sbd structure.

This is a good add-on. However, I am having a problem.
I have it set to back up on exit, but since about April, I have been getting "_MSG_dialog.title" and when I press OK, the backup is not created.

Deleting the add-on and re-inserting it again does not improve the situation. Please let me know how to improve this issue.

Thanks for the review, sorry for the issue.
This is something already being patched. It should only be necessary to do the following :
On the backup options tab make sure the Use modal window is set. The non-modal option is no longer compatible.
This has solved the issue for other users. If it does not, please post to the github issue :

ImportExportTools NG
v14.0.2
Thunderbird 115.9.0 (64-Bit)

Hallo, tolles Tool, aber leider werden nicht alle emails der jeweiligen Ordner kopiert, sondern nur ein kleiner Teil, manchmal, in einem der Ordner nur 15 von 397. Ich habe folgendes gemacht:
Rechtsclick auf den Archivordner unter "Lokale Ordner". dann: ImportExportTools NG => Alle Nachrichten im Ordner Exportieren => EML-Format => Nachrichten und Index mit Unterordnern
Ziel-Ordner ausgewählt und Klick auf Öffnen. Es werden auch bei mehrmaligem Versuch immer nur die gleichen paar EMails kopiert. Für Hilfe wäre ich sehr dankbar. LG

Worked perfectly for importing a few thousand emails!

Malheureusement ce greffon ne préserve pas la hiérarchie des libellés (étiquettes) de Gmail et ne les convertie pas en hiérarchie de dossies, rassemblant tous les courriels dans un seul et unique dossier.

Very good but relatively slow (but gets the job done in a few hours)
Importing 12Gigabyte and 105.000 messages from Windows Live Mail Export (Exported in less then a minute), 18 years of email (probably good moment to start cleaning anyway)
Intel 14700K CPU should not be a bottleneck,
maybe the SATA HDD slows things down.
40% done in about 65 minutes

I've been around a good while, but I've NEVER experienced such a superb developer as I did with this plugin. After deciding to get (the hell) out of the Apple walled garden, i had 20yrs of email data to move to Thunderbird on Linux (as a total noob to linux).

With a dog slow old iMac, very limited technical abilities, and some badly corrupted email folders, I didnt stand much of a chance.

But then came Christoper (developer of this plugin). Wow, just wow.

Day after day of fiddling and I finally have a nicely organised set of emails in Thunderbird, something I strongly doubted would be possible.

This plugin, combined with Christopher's phthon script, saved the day. I would urge all users to consider making a small donation to this project, the developer is as worthy of support as any I've ever dealt with. Please donate whatever you can (half of your donation goes to a very good cause).

Thank you so much Christopher.

I used the import to import mbox files originating from an outdated Microsoft Entourage instance (Apple iMac).
In first instance the tool was not able to import, but the developer responded quickly with a good solution after I reported the issues. Many thanks for the good support and the tool works great for me now!
I was not able to import multiple mbox files stored in multiple directories; that would be an improvement, because it is quite a lot of work to import folder by folder.

It is one of my favourite add-ons for thunderbird.
Had some issues with shortcuts, got in contact with the developer and now everything works fine.

Very nice Add-On. Worked for me 100%. I liked especially the very fast reaction time of the developer to an issue I had.
Thank you

Glad we could get the old mboxes in.

Used to work with many email formats. Now, it only works with mbox and eml. Its more like a export add-on! Pity!

I really don't understand this review.
NO email import formats have been deprecated.
Can you please post an issue with what you think are missing.

I use this addon every year to archive my emails, but this year I cannot save the email in a folder and its sub folders unless it is a MBOX format, I have no idea what an mbox is, I only know html format. Any possibilities of bringing this function back? I can still save the individual sub folders one by one, but when we are talking about 300+ sub folders, my fingers go a bit numb after that.

Works ok, right clicking on local folders is the way to import an MBOX instead of though in add-ons main interface of import. Things like this make it useful but cumbersome to use. Would recommend though.

Kein Import der mbox Dateien möglich.
Nur Profil Import möglich, das nicht existiert.
Schlechte Anleitung.

Deze beoordeling betreft een eerdere versie van de add-on (14.0.1). 

ImportExportTools does have mbox import and export capabilities.
If you read the help (localized for all locales), there are descriptions for all of the context menus. Right click on a folder and it will give you these options.

Great extension. Only one problem I ran into was when I tried to export my archives folder using the "Export folder with subfolders (with structure)" option. What resulted was correctly structured, but the bulk of the subfolders didn't have the .sbd extension. In fact, they didn't have any extension at all, so I was unable to use them to put anything in.

Thanks for the nice review!
The sbd is the container folder for subfolders. All the files without an extension are mbox files with the actual messages.
I would certainly like to help if there is any confusion or problems.
Can you post an issue in the github help repository?

Is it possible to include the "Size" column or other columns when exporting to "just index"?

Thanks for the review!
Currently the fields exported are fixed. I think I know what you are asking for, however, some clarification is needed for this.
Can you post an issue in the repository where we can discuss?
