Stellar add-on! Many thanks as it really streamlined things. Would've been a painfully tedious process without it.

Easy and nice. Works on Ubuntu 12.04

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Xubuntu 13.10. Thunderbird 24.2.0. ImportExportTools Locale UTF-8.Cannot export messages with subject in Russian - only "____" in filenames.
When I go in Tools --> ImportExportTools --> Preferences, click on "Filename" tab and uncheck the first checkbox ("Use just alphanumeric characters in export") - I see sctrange file name "C Днем Рождения!-20140202-0202-266687.txt".
But when I go in Tools --> ImportExportTools --> Preferences, click on "Filename" tab and change "Codepage for filename symbols" from UTF-8 to win1251 - all became OK :)

Go in Tools --> ImportExportTools --> Preferences, click on "Filename" tab and uncheck the first checkbox ("Use just alphanumeric characters in export"), it should fix this.

Richiesta opzione Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ciao, ma non sarebbe possibile un'opzione per decidere a che ora fare il backup periodico? Perchè se il primo backup l'ho fatto alle 15 e lo imposto come quotidiano, se il giorno successivo apro Thunderbird e lo chiudo alle 11, il backup non viene fatto, devo chiuderlo dopo le 15...


Please update for SeaMonkey Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The latest version for SeaMonkey (2.2) can't export mail (it doesn't create the files). It works with the TB version - but you have to manually change install.rdf to make it compatible. So for those who can't/won't make that change, please make an updated seamonkey version available.

Problem with ImportExportTools Rated 1 out of 5 stars

How do I export EMLs without underscores in their file names when using ImportExportTools I've tried leaving the "charset for filenames" field blank, using ASCll, and UTF-8 in the "charset for filenames" field but the EML file names still came out with underscores. So how do I get rid of the underscores in ImportExportTools like what options need to be set in order to get rid of those or what charset needs to be used in order to get rid of those underscores?
You told us that version 1.2.1 or higher uses all characters so that also includes commas, apostrophes, etc. but it didn't so your statement was false. The commas, apostrophes, etc. were still converted to underscores in version

Does not work anymore (TB 22 and above) Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Great add-on, but since Thunderbird 22 can just import saved accounts, not export anymore. Please update it, thank you !

von Paolo "Kaosmos" (Entwickler) am October 6, 2013 :

This extension can't import and export accounts, just messages... if you've troubles in import messages, please write to my email address with mor details

Sorry, you're absolutly right!
I was confused and I mean the add-on "accountex 0.3.0" which is no more supported.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

doesn't export body to .csv Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The export utility doesn't export the message body to the .csv file. Also, the last column exported is just the heading "Subject:"

ImportExport Tool did not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Did not work. The tool could not find the Thunderbird files exported from my other computer even though they were exported using the same tool.

Probably you didn't follow the right procedure in importing.
If you want more info, please write to my e-mail

Lifesaver! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My mail server crashed unrecoverably. I was able to go to backups, but ImportExportTools also allowed me to retrieve all the mail I had received since the last backup by exporting it from my client. If I could give this six stars, I would!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Much like good, old archivemail, just without the hassle. And, of course, it works with remote mail folders. A little polish for the exported HTML (index page, etc) and I'd give it five...

Funcionamento Intermitente Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Não estou conseguindo importar pastas do Windows Live Mail, as vezes aparece a opção, outras vezes não. POderia ter uma inegração melhor. as opções de importação(fora mbox) estão apagadas (não disponíveis) não sei o que pode estar acontecendo. Era um ótimo complemento, não sei se o problema é esta ultima versão do thunderbird.

* individual export email's file name should also have time prefix (currently YYYYMMDD, compare to YYYYMMDDHHMMSS).
REASON: when there are several messages per day, it's important to determine the order.
* NEW feature: export all as a single html WITH attachments either DESC or ASC.

Desire of a export configuration options , when creating the Index.htm:
1/ standardize date to ISO format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM(:SS), currently YYYY-MM-DD
Very convenient for sorting and no confusion between MM-DD or DD-MM ). Should people like it also DD-MM-YYYY HH:MM or MM-DD-YYYY HH:MM
2/ having the option to generate index in DESCENDING order.
3/ should have an option to add to index:
* cc & cci (sometimes it is very usefull to have this info ready)
* mark when the email as the "important" flag, versus normal
* COUNTER of attachement if > 0

Html attachments Rated 4 out of 5 stars


Excellent software, many thanks (not only for this add-on, but also for all the others you give to the community).

I encountered the following problems under v2.8.0.4 when "Export all the messages in a folder / Format HTML with attachments" :

-When selecting more than one folder, the attachments are not saved (except for the first selected folder), only its description is shown. (When selecting only one folder, everything is ok, and the attachments folders are created on disk.)

- When selecting a folder with sub-folders, nothing is exported; the add-on seems to be in an infinite loop. (And nothing is written in the log file.)

Kind regards,

It was salvation Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I suddenly was not able to open many emails - they would be blank but you could see the html source and most graphics just showed the code. I used the tool to export and then re-import all my folders and mail and although some graphics got lost, my mail was there and functional.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (
