Not compatible with 38.3.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please update it to work with latest Thunderbird.

Upgrade Needed Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Your addon is the only one I could find that allows a person to gather addresses together from a folder. I hope that it is upgraded to work with the latest versions of Thunderbird soon.

Please upgrade the plugin to the latest version.

Still works in 17.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I deleted an addressbook with all of my work contacts by accident. This app helped to at least get back the email addresses and most of the names. I had to download it and install to the add-ons file, then used thunderbird to install it via the drop down menu in the add-ons window. I also modified about:config to not check for version compatibility. Saved me from having to re-enter 800+ addresses. I'll still have to sort through them, but they are all there somewhere. :) Thanks!

I would pay for an addon like this (one that works) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon does not work. At least not with the recent versions of TB. I need to create lists of clients using complex email searches from within my messages directories. My wish is to make a search, select all messages found in the search, right click them and see an option to export all "recipients" and/or "senders" to a csv file or text file or whatever simple list format to create lists and/or to a TB address book. Anyone able ? This is really missing.

Version 5 from Paolo "Kaosmos" is compatible with TB10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have installed version 5 from
I works fine with Thunderbird v10.
However, when my contacts already exist in another address book, EMail Address Crawler does not duplicate them in the targeted address book :(

One key thing about this plugin Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Keep this big fat caveat in mind: if you chose to save the crawled addresses in an address book, any crawled addresses that exist in ANY address book (not just the one you selected) WILL BE SKIPPED. Learned this one the hard way!

Supported? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This looks like a great add-on. But although it installed on TB 9.0.1 and looks like it works....I dont see the adresses in address book. Im inclined to believe it doesnt work with this most recent version....thanks, im sure its a great addon, if it worked for newer TB versions.

No longer developed Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It was a good addon this and very useful but the developer has stopped supporting it and it hasn't worked with any recent versions of Thunderbird. Look forward to the day it is updated, but not holding my breathe

Work perfectly on TB 3.1.12. Lots of options and easy to use. It was just what I needed.

A nice option would be to output to csv, but it's easy enough to export from a new address book.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on, it's my favourite. Please can you make a version that works with Thunderbird 6? :)

Totally awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just installed it for Thunderbird 3.1.10 under Ubuntu Maverick 10.10. At first I couldn't figure out how to access it; just right click on a folder and it is the last item on the list. I just migrated over from Windows, and had emails going back to 1997. Just created an address book with almost 4000 addresses. Wow, just great. Thanks!

NOP, sorry, I take my good review back.
It only works the first time.
Every time thereafter you crawl again (cause you get new mail, new addresses, right? - It would tell you that it added, say 1/2/3 addresses but in actual did "Nothing"

So once you used it the first time, thereafter it just goes nuts! ;-)

Works flawlessly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

'EMail Address Crawler 3' works flawlessly with TB 3.1.10 and Windows XP SP3. FEATURE REQUESTS: 1) An additional option to exclude email addresses of specific (sub)domains (like,,, @news.*), 2) An additional option to exclude specific mailboxes (like mailer-daemon@, noreply@, postmaster@, info@, support@) and 3) An additional column with the (sub)domain name of the email address for sorting purposes.
