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.

Great tool - feature request Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is an extremely useful tool. Would it be possible to integrate it into the mail-filters menu, so that emails could be backed up automatically based on mail-filter criteria?

Very Grateful! Dont delete this app Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is one of my intregal routines to organizing my email if I lost it I would only become more disorderly in my life. I love the option of export html and pdf (note you lose the attachments of the email with this method).
Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Perfect for import from Microsoft Entourage 2008 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Exactly what I needed, thanks!
I've been running the same Microsoft email database on my Macs since Outlook Express 4.0, and it's grown to over 10GB with multiple folders of messages. I stayed with Microsoft email clients so I could keep my full email history, but they're prone to database corruption and it was frustrating having to restore from backups and re-download new messages. So I exported from Entourage to a .rge container (just a fancy folder of .mbox files) and with this add-on I was able to quickly and easily re-import everything into the subdirectory layout I had before. Now Thunderbird has my full message history, yay!
Stellar and almost exactly what I was looking for! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just finished testing this, and exported into eml, html, and pdf. As well, I tested the export search tool, where I was able to only export emails prior to a certain date. All formats came out great. It was quick and simple to use.
A 'nice to have' would be if (somehow) the pdf export would include attachments... eml and html both include attachments. eml includes it in the eml file, which is as expected. html creates an index.html file and a folder storing the attachments and emails. Links in the html file open the email, then links in the emails open the attachments.
I was looking for this to reduce the disk space used on my hosting account at Hostgator (to keep my costs down) and manage my staff archive and older emails offline. I need multiple backups and need to keep in case of future liability issues that may arise. This is a very helpful tool.

Excellent tool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One of the best tools I have found for importing and exporting emails to/from Thunderbird.
I have found one small issue and hopefully it is an easy fix. When I highlight multiple folders and select Export all messages in folder > EML format. If I don't have every folder expanded, it skips folders underneath. If this is the intended behavior, fine - but I would prefer not to have to expand and select every folder and would expect that if I highlighted the parent folder I would want the folders under it as well.
Thanks and keep up the good work! I will be donating to this one!
EML import works Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I used this tool for importing five EML files into my mailbox. This worked fine. It imports them into the currently open folder.
I wished it would mark them somehow (unread, starred, or tagged) to enable me to find them within the hundreds of already present messages in that folder.
Unwanted side-effects Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I had 2 issues which were gone when I removed this add-on:
1) When I empty a folder Next and Previous do not work.
2) When I make a filter the list with recent folders keeps empty.
See Bug 1362850
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This tool requires a little time in testing & getting used to, but it's worth it as I now have it set up to archive all my mails into readable .eml files (along with a searchable index) in a separate folder on a different disk to my TB mail disk.
My only suggestion would be to offer a Help manual (link from the menu?).
Good start Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Love it but needs improvements.
Cancellable progress dialog box so we know lengthy operation is in progress.
Report, saved to the root directory, that tells the user of successes, file count, errors so they know what to look for eg I was warned that an attachment file couldn't be found.
When exporting as html with attachments i noticed that only the root folder was saved. The whole tree structure should be saved. I love the html index file, that was great.
Does not work, bug, misses most emails from INBOX Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Imported only about 200 emails from INBOX which actually had 2500 emails. Failed to import INBOX messages dated before the date of 11/24/2007
Imported 1113 files from "SENT" box, but there were 1112 files in "SENT" box.
Unacceptible. Looses data.
When two files named "INBOX" are compared, from original directory and created backup / export file named "INBOX" they have the same file sizes. This means that all the data was exported correctly, but something goes wrong during importing. Imported "INBOX" file is of very small size, not the same size as the file being imported (of backup file). Exporting was done on Windows. Importing was done on Linux and on Windows, on different machine. To eliminate errors, the entire procedure was repeated: downloading all emails, then exporting them to file(s), then importing them on different Windows and Linux machines. Again, the resulting imported "inbox" file was very small and invalid.
MailStore Home 10.0 is free program and correctly imported all emails, with attachments, with all mail directories.
Fantastic Profile Backup Agent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have used bits of this add-on and have been happy with the results. However, the part I use mainly and which just blows me away is the backup component. It is intuitively simple to set up and, once done, my full profile is backed up consistently to the folder of my choice. It has saved my bacon more than once. With the seeming demise of MozBackup, this component alone is worthy of a full 5 stars. Highly recommended.
