I appreciate the effort behind such developments. Unfortunately, the add-on is of no use to me - the attachments are all saved as defective PDFs (several test runs; fortunately tested before serious use!). In addition, the shortcut link that TB creates when separating with on-board resources would not work here... too bad

This addon doesn't work on my installation and it gives error messages. The available links do not seem to allow one to communicate directly with th e developer.

The original AttachmentExtractor was far more better because it extracted automatically and save it into a folder one could define.

This one is just a little more than the default of TB.

The tool deletes attachmants without asking and duplicates the email (sometimes!). Why?.. I selected 15 emails and 23 (15 original emails + 8 duplicates).

When I chose for deleting the attachment, your program duplicates the mail of the deleted file. The duplicate is again with attachment. Am I doing something wrong?

It would be just perfect if it worked with RSS feed attachments, which it does not (it returns a text file with an error). Thunderbird is m! :issing such a product righht now! :-(

As the others said, it is nice to have an attachment extractor that works with TB 90 etc. I too would like it to remember my last selection for the filename. I also found that it seems to hang up when the TB folder has a plus (+) sign in the folder name.

Many thanks for this very useful add on. I do really need it to being able to remove the attachments in bulk.

Thanks you so much for adapting this module to Thunderbird 91 !!
it still lacks nearly every options compared to the previous versions, and documents are deleted from only half of the emails, but at least they are saved. I still need to spend much time deleting them from emails after extraction...
'Hope some day it will work flawlessly as before. GOOD LUCK !

The release 14 works with Thunderbird 91.2.0 if I select a few files to process. If I select all emails in a directory (>500 emails) it does not seem to work.
This is an important add-on that help us to keep the emails clean. It would be good to have the possibility to remove the attachments without storing on a disk (or store on a pre-defined directory). Thank you for your support.

Very good, but two really important features are missing...

1. There does not appear to be a way to extract attachments to a preset folder automatically on receipt of email.

2. When you set the "%date%_%fromMail%_%subject%_%filename%" setting (i only want to use %fromMail%_%filename%) it does not remember what you used last time.

It works, but not the way I'd like it to. I miss two simple, but really important features.
1. Detach attachments to folders named according to some e-mail parameter i.e. sender's address. At present every "\" in filename template is replaced with "-".
2. Set a default ("root") folder for detached attachments.

Unfortunately AttachmentExtractor Continued for TB91 can not be developed further, I look forward to the successor!
I would like to see the setting of a default directory.

Great stuff! After all other attachment add-ons stopped working at thunderbird 91.1.1, Attachment Extractor is my hero! I have 200 attachments in 1 folder each month and now i just need to mark all and save the attachments on my computer ^^ thank you so much.

works as described but very inefficient - I have hundreds of email folders and over 140k emails, so removing attachments from emails will take a VERY long time - ideally, I would like to right-click on a folder and extract attachments on a per-folder basis, but perhaps this is not an option. Until then, I'll have to look for alternatives.
