Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was thrilled with this. It did have a little problem with downloading but after spending weeks trying to find a way to save my emails to my documents / flashdrive it was like a miracle finding this. It works very easily and smoothly. Thanks

major problems! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In thunderbird 24.5.0 I encounter with copyfolder 1.5 unlogic and erractic and false behaviour, which makes it impossible to use it productivly!

Executing copyfolder on a sourcefolder TEST with numerous subfolders and numerous mails results in a targetfolder TEST in which the subfolders are copied well, but with numerous mails missing.

Clicking on the copied subfolders with mails contained, makes most of the mails disappear!!!

Doesn't work with [Gmail] folder Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I wanted to use this add-on to copy my Gmail folders from one gmail account to another one.
The add-on did it job well with Inbox and Label-folders but it couldn't copy folders under [Gmail] folder which is a special one as when you try to specify this folder as a destination the 'Copy here' option is disabled.
Otherwise the add-on does it's job.

Worked perfectly for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In was using batch copy but after upgrading to thunderbird 24 batchcopy stopped working, came across this addon and this helped me back up my emails on top of the existing backup batch copy made. A perfect replacement! Thanks :)

Worked fine Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Usig Firefox 26.0, I copied half a dozen folders one at a time and it copied those along with their subfolders. Some subfolders also had subfolders. All folders and subfolders and emails copied. There were over 40 folders and 2,000 emails in total.

Works not as expected Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hello, would be great if it really works. When trying to copy folders including subfolders and then messages, it copies the folders and subfolders and in some cases even messages for one or two subfolders. Can't fix why.

Does Not Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After downloading and installing it, I tried to set it up as indicated on the main add-on page. Tools > Account Settings > Synchronization & Storage" does not exist in T-Bird version 24.0.1 for the Mac.
Following the instructions only downloads the inbox to the local folders. T-Bird already downloads the inbox. I don't need that. I need the other folders.

Here is what has happened.

Very useful! I use Copy Folder for a simple backup of my IMAP account in my local folders. It's true, this was the missing plugin.

This plugin is great. I'm copying over 60,000 messages in a complex tree and it is doing well, although it is slow, at least it is completely automated. Very good

Doesn't work because of a bug in Thunderbird Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This addon doesn't work because there is a bug in Thunderbird where if there is any error message from the IMAP server, Thunderbird stops processing further IMAP commands but does not properly alert the user or addon.

Not already fully functional Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Good idea, but it does not copy recursively the contents of the folders and their sub-folders. The structure is ok, but the folders that are not leaves of the tree are empty in the copy.

Excellent. Worked as described. Also did a differential copy so only added new emails to folder.

a revoir Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Bonne idée, mais ne fonctionne qu'en copie d'un dossier sans copier les messages. donc sans réel intérêt.
Bon courage pour le développement

Sehr gut umgesetzt Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Die vorangegangenen Bewertungen treffen nicht mehr zu, weil es inzwischen eine neue Version gibt, die hält was sie verspricht. Es wird alles kopiert.
Ein Manko bleibt leider ungelöst, eine Unterbrechung des Kopiervorgangs ist nicht möglich.
Trotzdem 5-Sterne für die tolle Arbeit.
Danke

I agree with the other review. Great idea, but I also find that when copying from a local folder to an IMAP account, only one folder is copied on each try. This is only marginally better than recreating the folder structure manually. I'd gladly change my review to 5 stars if this worked better.

Die Idee ist gut... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Using TB 10 / 11
Some times (!) it makes a copy, but not all of the subfolders, have to repeat same action (from - to) often; counting of mails in the subfolders is correct... and yes, I have the mails locally for offline-reading.
