Useless for export Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Misses most embedded images and many attachments. This forced me to do a manual scan thru each mbox and save them explicitly.
The program cannot even copy straightforward text-format messages from the MBOX to individual files (exporting as plain text) reliably. Numerous newline characters were stripped. It is easier for me to work with the MBOX files in a text editor when I want to do things in bulk.
In sum, it is faster to work without this add-on than with it.
Rescued my Apple mail corrupted email Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Pro! I am importing my emails very fast and very grateful to have this tool.
The ONLY option to import that is working - Import messages. That has me manually importing the .emlx folders 1 by 1. I'm over 30hours into this process. each Apple folder is no more that 1000 emails. Again, I'll take the help and be happy. Not sure why NONE of the choices to import the mbox or even the the choice to import the directory and subfolders do not work. It's likely my email that Apple was unable to help with and ultimately told me TBird is better for heavy mail users.
would be 5* if the import directory worked.
Works really well, thanks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The native Save As dialog was crashing. This extension worked perfectly out of the box and saved the day.
Amazing... Imported all my Foxmail emails to Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can not install importexporttools-3.3.0 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I can only quote Anonymer Nutzer 88e28d from Feb. 11 2018 just updating my versions of Firefox and Thunderbird: "How did you people manage to review this add-on? I can't even get it to install. I am trying to install on a Windows 10 PC with Firefox 59.0.2 and Thunderbird 52.7.0 - should be the latest version of both. All I get is: This add-on could not be installed because it has not been verified"
Basic export doesn't work well enougth Rated 1 out of 5 stars
My archives folder was about 32.2Mb with 27 files and 2 sub folders but the exporter (export folder and sub-folder option ) only picks half of the contents ( although it amounts to almost the same size of 32.0Mb).
This makes it feel unreliable even if half of those files were useless, they exist nonetheless.
Using the export to zip function is a bit wonky as it asks for a folder instead of asking about the file name of your zip and it's location (like any basic "save as ..." function). But the worst part is that the resulting zip file is 0kb in size and only contains a reference to my Archive folder which makes it half useless.
Ideally, i'd like to be able to backup all the contents of a folder at once. Even better if it all gets zipped.
I'm sure this extension is useful in other ways but for me, the basic export/import functionality isn't working properly which is a disappointment seeing as it's supposedly a major v3 release. : s Who knows what else doesn't work properly or makes you feel it does but then crashes silently.
I'd like to warn everyone using this to be extra careful.
Very Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have found this very useful for developing templates on one computer and exporting them to another. I'll be sorry if it is forced to obsolescence in the future.

Not Working in New Thunderbird version Rated 4 out of 5 stars

feature request finer timestamp in filenames ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I gave this top rating just alone for exporting a folder to html with attachments. This aproach is exactly what I have done manually before but laziness prevents me from doing it more often.
A few wishes:
I would like if the time Preifx in the file names for the exported Mails would not only reflect the day but also the time e.g:
20180104_1300 (for arrival at 13:00)
Also I would rather like the unique number at the beginning of the file name eg:
This prefix could then also be used as foldername for attachments belonging to the corresponding mail.

Excellent tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Extremely useful tool, especially in combination with RSS messages. Two additiona would be nice: support for export to pdf format on Macintosh and support of A4 format paper while converting to pdf on PC. These are missing.
