Could not be installed in Thunderbird 78 because it seems to be broken. The seems to be a new version of this tool that covers Thunderbird 68/78: https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-GB/thunderbird/addon/importexporttools-ng/
Love the app, especially as it seems to be only one of a kind.
All the same, what is really frustrating is:
1. How long the downloads take (though that could be TB or my OVH mail server). Still 5* at this point.
2. If there is a break in connection on export of the 999th out of 1000 mails, the export is interrupted, there's one mail missing, but there is also no index.html, which is a pain, as you have to start the export from the beginning again (i.e. several hours more in my case).
It needs to be able to pick up again from where the connection broke.
3. I have regularly exported a folder & got the final index.html so wiped the mails from my server, then found that the exported folder is incomplete, although the index.html file has them all listed. Clicking on a missing file gives "File not found". (I just now exported a folder of 21 mails, but the export folder only contains 5. I try a 2nd time & all 21 are there. Try this on a folder with 1000+ mails!)
Hi, my new Thunderbird says this add-on has to be updated for Thunderbird 68.12.0 Could this be done, please?
All import functionality is disabled. What do I have to do to allow me to import mbox files? I can only export.
Worked great to export old profile from Thunderbird 60.9.1 to 68.8.1.
Used ImportExportTools NG add-on to import to Thunderbird 68.8.1.
This worked great to import some old sent emails that I had lost when I switched over to Gmail from two other email servers that I had deleted after the switch. It brought in all the emails from the deleted servers Mail > Sent folders lickity split and dumped it all into a new Sent folder, then I could move it all over to a Old Sent folder for future reference.
Thanks to all who created this Add-On!
Hola, agradecería actualizaran este complemento que tanto utilizo. Utilizo Firefox 74.0 (64 bit). Gracias.
ImportExportTools are very helpful for saving Mails like a backup. Selecting files or directories helps saving diskspace and overview. I missed them, since the last update from Thunderbird and would like to use them further.
This tool is a very important and useful development.
Many thanks to the developer
4 stars because it worked for the minimal thing I needed it for, and that was to export individual folders from my account to somewhat a mirrored folder on my hard drive. It's a little quirky and I had to play around with it a bit to see what the limitations of what this freebie could do in order to make that happen. I did run in to the complications of subdirectories not being created just from exporting a main one. I still had to select all, and then sort each in to the main directories all created in a single folder. Maybe I didn't understand how some specific setting worked, but I was able to do enough that I feel kosher with the end product. I did only do exporting as .eml though and each directory does create an html file as somewhat a more viewable table of the messages in the directories. I just click on a hyperlink and the message is opened in my default program. When saving to this format, attachments are saved also in the original message too. When trying to specifically export folders by the way, just a blank file gets created in your chosen folder... I have no idea on any other workings though because I don't need those, but it seems like some people are having other complications according to the previous comments.
Please, an update for v version 68.1.2 is required. I realy need an import function. Thanks
S'il vous plait, upgradez pour la version Thunderbird 6.1.2
Importer mes anciens fichiers est vital pour moi. Merci
End of development and support from the author :( Not working with 64bit TB :(
please fix compatibility with version 68.1.0
An update for thunderbird 68.1.0 is required ;)
Thanks for the fine tools.
Improvement idea: Have you thought about replacing the default drag&drop of messages (saves them as eml-files but without customizabel filename) by your "Save selected messages -> as eml-files".
This module is very practical. Thank you so much.
Is it possible to integrate a button in the toolbar of tb to launch for example the function "export format eml"?
The "Export" tool saves *EVERYTHING*, including my IMAP directories. I can retrieve my IMAP mail from the host server if I ever needed to recreate it. All I want to save are my settings, not the whole entirety of IMAP messages.
program working incorrectly, for example by exporting email to CSV it truncate recepient email in random position. Is this a hard task to find ";" - a marker of recipient email end field?
It DOES the JOB for FREE!! After searching a lot for a bulk eml importer I found this!!! It is the only free out there. You can import a directory with eml files and then use them wherever you want (GMAIL, OUTLOOK)...
One of my favorite add-on extensions. I can take thousands of bounceback files, export to a single txt file and use my systems to analyze to generate an email list for no-sending in future. Saves me hours of work.
