Thunderbird 38.4 on Linux becomes painfully slow with this module (ver. 0.5.2). More than 1 Gb of RAM & 1 core are completely used by it. Linux 14.04 LTS and newer becomes instable and a memory leak appears.
The problem did not exist with previous versions of Thunderbird/Linux (before nov. 2015). The module was great at this time, thanks.
Das war ein super Add-On und hat immer funktioniert. Seit meiner Umstellung auf TB 31.6.0 hat sich mein TB leider immer aufgehängt und wurde so langsam, dass man nicht mehr damit arbeiten konnte. Es dauerte bis ich den Fehler gefunden habe. Nach der Deaktivierung dieses Add-Ons hat TB wieder normal funktioniert. Es wäre schön, wenn dieses ADD-On upgedated wird, da ich es vermisse.
This extension does not perform as stated, at least for TB 31.3.0.
It does not backup on close, and it does not have a button to run backups on command.
Also, there should be a help page detailing how to perform these stated functions.

Automatic Export 0.5.2
This is a much-needed extension and, in general, it works very well. Thank you for creating it.
The extension does not, however, seem to handle Linux filepath separators ("/"), and the "automatic backup" feature seems to save only one version though the documentation implies that multiple versions can be saved.
Debian wheezy 7.3 amd64, icedove 17.0.10
- with automatic export
- "Défini par l'utilisateur" (french)
- hours no empty
- minute empty
If "minute" no empty, it's good.
Thanks for your addon.
Ich bin, was die Export/Backup-Funktion angeht, mit Automatic Export sehr zufrieden.
Allerdings funktioniert das Aufrufen einer externen Applikation nach dem Export / Backup nicht. Ich erhalte immer eine JAVA-Fehlermeldung. Es wird eine Export-ics-Datei angelegt, aber die Applikation (in meinem Fall ein Script) wird nicht gestartet.
Statt dessen wird der Vorgang mit einer Fehlermeldung quittiert. Das Problem trat bereits seit der Vorgängerversion 0.5.0 auf.
Die Fehlerkonsole von Thunderbird gibt auch nicht viel Verwertbares her.
Beste Add on
Great work. Works perfect for synching via Ubuntu One.
Nice Extension. Though I use automatic export mostly it would be nice to add the export button to the lightning toolbar, now that thunderbird 11 distinguishes between mail and calendar toolbar.
Great addon, excellent for backup use! Thanks a lot! Please make it work for TB 10! Thanks!
Add-on works but it would be nice that the html export can given a start-date relative to the actual date.
Unfortunately, the newest version of this add-on, 0.4.3 appears to be broken on Sunbird 1.0b1. "Export on Close" doesn't do anything, and there's no option for timed exports visible.
- The addon can do timed exports of the calendar. I use it to create a web view of the calendar with phpicalendar.
- Version of the addon here on addons.mozilla.org is outdated (0.3.2) . On the author homepage is a never version. (0.4.3)
- Automatic export "on close" is not working. But I don't need it. I used timed exports every 10 minutes.
Its a great AddOn.
To use it with Thunderbird 3.1.* look at
Thunderbird 3.1 Compatibility
Jeff3832, I could not get this to work. Can you upload your version of this extension or provide more details.
The latest available version (0.3.2) is not compatible with Thunderbird 3.1, and it doesn't look like the author has been active with this addon for a long time. So, I unzipped the XPI and edited the install.rtf file to change the maxVersions variable from 3.0 to 3.1 -- then put it back together it installed without a hitch and worked fine for me.
It's a very good and helpful add-on. It's a pity, that is still not available for Thunderbird 3.1.
Works for me with Thunderbird 3.0.4 and Lightning 1.0b1 in Linux. At first it installed but would not export file upon exit. Repeated - still would not work. Unzipped the .xpi file, opened install.rdf with text editor, changed em:maxVersion to ="9.0pre" in both locations. Zipped up the open files(but not the folder they were unzipped into) and renamed that to the original .xpi file name. Reinstalled and it works.
Seems to work very well based on a couple of trials.
can youe explain the reason for the maxVersion?
it sounds like ...
with this fix you are able to export on close.
I can install the add-on and configure it, but it does not copy anything on quit. Neither can I install an 'export' button in the toolbar, there is no such button available when I select 'customize toolbar'.
mozilla has changed the structure. so i have to change the overlay.
with the next version it will work.
It seems delete events are not delete from the ical exported file on sunbird exit/export/whatever. Only when a new event is added and exported will the old deleted events be erased.
Which is a bit dumb
With version 1.0b1 of Lightning and version 3.0.4 of Thunderbird, this addon doesn't export at close. Any pb of compatibility ?
Note: First time I installed this a while ago, it appeared to do nothing. After installing this you have to do a View, Toolbars, Customize to drag the button(s) to toolbar. Pressing arrow on right of button allows for choosing how often to auto save.
A very handy piece of software.
I no longer need to individually save thousands of emails. Once they are saved the email is an individual file on a drive, just the way I like it.
You can get an update of this extension from the author's homepage. Keep in original language to download.
author should have mentioned this with notes.
For those that may be looking for an update for Sunbird 0.9, follow to homepage and download. Leave the german text or will not work.
