AMAZING! I was looking for a way to move emails between servers (which i don't have admin access of course) and this addon saved me. Thank you.

This tool used to be sufficient to export the e-mails from a selected folder to a .CSV file for use in an Excel spreadsheet. However, now it is pretty much useless. When you choose Spreadsheet (CSV), it does save all the e-mails in CSV format, but now it adds all the html codes to the body of the e-mail texts and intersperses them throughout, such as <html> </head>
, etc. That makes the CSV file useless because I don't want all those codes in the message bodies, and there is no convenient way to get rid of them. Previously, the export did not include those codes, then it was very useful. Please fix this! I have thousands of e-mails to work on, and I cannot do it with the app as it is. Totally worthless.

A couple of comments:
- This is not a "review" At best. It is a purported, possible bug
- Issues, bugs & enhancements are posted on the Support Site/GH repository:
https://github.com/thundernest/import-export-tools-ng/issues
- Typical, sufficient detail should be added as there is little clarity in the above for any reasonable issue post
- In my many years of engineering I have done my best to avoid working on anything that is "Totally worthless", just saying...

The perfect add-on that solves all IO needs for Thunderbird, whether you need to archive, migrate or turn thunderbird into a database for any other application. The big advantage is the fast and willing approach of Christopher, who has exemplary support. Definitely need to install :)

Hi Christopher! To me, this is the best and most usesful add-on to Thunderbird, coming from an Import Export tool I used for older versions of TB. I do have a question though for a feature I can't find. Now that I've backed up all my emails from one of my GMail accounts to TB using your add-on...how do I load them into my current GMail account? Sort of like a "copy to xxxx@gmail.com" function. Thanks in advance!

For me, this was one of the most useful add-ons in Thunderbird, and I used it a lot. Suddenly, and recently, it has completely ceased to work i.e. I can select any of the options, but nothing happens and nothing is written to my dump folders.
A great pity, and no obvious reason for it.

Sorry for the issues. Can you open an issue in the repository:

Great and useful add-on.

But it should come built-in with Thunderbird.

Keep up the good work.

Hey!
Thanks for this amazing extension, found it after a lot of searching. If you don't mind I'd like to give you a feedback/suggestions.

1. I am using this add-on to import .eml files since I just have 250mb mail server capacity so I save the files from Thunderbird as .eml and view them in my local folder. Can I lock/permanently save the directory of a particular local folder to my directory from which I import the files? Like local folder TEST1 to directory C:/thunderbird/Test1, TEST2 to D:/thunderbird/Test2, etc.

2. When I add new eml files to my computer folder/directory as my mail server is about to get full, can the Thunderbird's local folder automatically fetch/sync those mails?

3. When I imported the mails initially via the add-on and then I did it again on the same local folder since I had added new eml files, I got duplicate files and it imported all the files again as the add-on could not distinguish between new and already added files.

4. Say I have 2000 mails in my computer folder, when I import the files to Thunderbird using the add-on, only say 1800 or 1900 mails/items are imported. Why is that? When I export the mails from Thunderbird they are more than when I import them.

I hope you understood my queries/suggestions. Again, it has solved a huge part of my problem but these few things would ease the process even further.

Great program, doing the job that Mozilla themselves should have already done.

The only thing that I will say is I could not find the TOOLS menu for this anywhere, but it's a problem with these horrible new Thunderbird versions. The File/View/Tools/etc menu that you see when you click the main button in the top right is completely SEPARATE from the Menu that's accessed via clicking the ALT key. Really terrible design (not your fault). I suggest you put a message about this in the options window for this add on because I spent an incredibly long time looking for it.

An absolute masterpiece of programming! Months of suffering with failed and half-assed attempts swept away in the time it took to follow the self-explanatory instructions!

Tbird onWin7 16000 messages to Tbird on Linux Mint, Free at Last! Free at Last! Free at Last!

Tbird on Win7 did, however, remain unresponsive after profile export and Windows required rebooting - hey, it's Windows.

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:
https://github.com/thundernest/import-export-tools-ng/issues

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!

Excellent!
Essential tool for offline archiving &amp; 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!

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!

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!
