It does exactly what I need: from time to time I want to archive email-messages to cleanup the workingPC.
I save the messagefolders in 2 formats: in EML format: that allows me to put an archive back. And I also save it it HTML, for convenience. The author creates a folder and an file Index.html. Now, THAT is nice !

There is need to use advanced option which converts each component of Thunderbird like mailbox, contacts, folders and attachments into Outlook PST file. On this basis, I selected Stellar MBOX to PST converter over ImportExportTools for best result.

Trying to migrate to Thunderbird form Windows Live Mail on a Win7 box is proving to be one big pain in the ass and this Add-on is proving to be near useless. It is importing one folder of saved local messages at a time. So I have 7 out of 37 imported. And it gets better - only one folder shows any emails. Folders with known dozens of messages are empty. Including folders with financial transactions. This is all giving far more grief than I need and I am thinking this whole thing is just one big steaming pile. I see plenty of praise for exporting, and it may do that well. So far it can't import worth a damn. And now I have wasted more time trying to warn others.

ImportExportTools worked flawlessly, importing my 350 Eudora v7.1 mailboxes (with 117k emails) into Thunderbird 3.0 on a Windows 7 machine. While I had prepped the mailboxes with eudrescu (without errors from eudrescu), Thunderbird crashed every time I tried to import the messages. Thank you for building and maintaining this great add-on. The UI, in particular, is very elegant.

Requests to Great Add-On ImportExportTools Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much for ImportExportTools. Its excellent addon, brillant and helpful.

I'm using that "export of all messages in one single plain text file" the feature. It's very thing, all mail combining is a TXT file.

I have three request-suggest.

(1. Request)

By way of my habit of O.Express, I have been backup all mail. OE's headers sequence:

From:
To:
Subject:
Date:
Attachements: filename1.txt, photo2.jpg

ThunderBird's Header sequence not same with OE. Therefore, ImportExportTools use TB sequence:

Subject:
From:
Date:
To:

Could you adding OE sequence? At least, a custom sequences as a option?

*

(2. Request)

About Date display format (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Date_display_format).

I'm set prefs.js file: user_pref("mail.ui.display.dateformat.default", 1);

After this setting, ThunderBird can display as "Day-Month-Year-Hour" date format of all mails. Example: 8 July 2013 20:00

Unfortunately TB can't remember the date format setting when saving (File - Save As - File). Still use save default format("Date: 08.07.2013 20:00")

Even if the date format supplied by TB, ImportExportTools can change/fix in saved mails?

*

(3. Request)

ImportExportTools perfectly merge all mails "as single plain text". Okay. But no separating line of every mails. Therefore reading can be confusing. Could you add a custom separating character? (etc "-----" ).

*

You see, that's all not important. Perhaps, its personal request. If it comes to that and unnecessary for general use, of coure you could take no notice of this suggestions.

At all events, again thank you for ImportExportTools.
Best regards...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.0.4). 

About your requests:

1) This requires some work to be implemented and at the present it's not one of priorities. I've not so much time to develop the extension and so I must do a "order of priority". I will keep this in mind for the future, if I will have time enough.

2) Are you talking about headers in saved messages or what else?

3) This is a very useful hint, it will be implemented in the next update.

Jesus Christ.

Exported folder. Reinstalled everything.
Gladly all the folders were exported without any file extension and I have no fucking idea what the extension should or should not be. So, Im unable to import the emails back.

Im " " that close committing a suicide.

Really awesome addon, I hope I don't ever have to use this retarded spaghetti-code piece of shit ever again.

Question Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a great tool, I use this in this way: I want to copy email from one address to another.

what I do is this:
I export emails as eml fils, and the I import in the others email addres. The problem is that in thunderbir I see the correct received time of the email, but not in gmail, I'm truing to copy the email of work to gmail (I just try email import from gmail) but this tool it's much more pretty and usefull

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.0.4). 

I'm aware of this problem, but it depends from a underlying bug (of Thunderbird and/or of Gmail), see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=747436 , vote and comment it to have some chance that it will be fixed

Excellent tool. I run a web server which reports attempts to hack in to me with the IP of the source in the Subject line. I have been trying for ages to find a tool to allow me to export just the index list so I can sort it by IP. That will allow me to modify my firewall settings to disallow whole blocks. This extension does it a treat. Well done.

Excellent add-on. It did all the export and import of all my emails correctly when I was installing fresh new Operating System and needed to transfer over my inbox. No complaints whatsoever. Good job!

Good, but not preserving tags Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works fine, but when exporting mails and then importing again all tags are lost. Is it possible to preserve these?

It Imports *.eml Files Like a Charm! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In a previous review I complained that this add-one would not import *.eml files as advertised. However, it does and it worked very well. Wish I could delete my previous review, but I can't, so this is my retraction.

Really, really great Add-On … Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really not much to say. Works as advertised. Makes Thunderbird so much more useful in my company environment, where normally Outlook is the standard email client. In particular having a good HTML export is so much more useful.

Still, I have three suggestions however.

First allow for the optional specification of a CSS stylesheet. Currently, after exporting I'm opening the index.html file with an editor and include something like '<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"></link>'. Therefore it would be really nice to have an additional text field to specify the "style.css" in my example. Then I would only have to copy an appropriate CSS file into the export directory for visually pimping the HTML index view. Or perhaps even include the main table within an additional <div class=""></div>, then users could uses http://www.csstablegenerator.com/ to add their own design.

Second, another text field for supplying a custom title for the HTML output. I'm frequently using this extension to export a particular thread of email messages to document a message exchange for instance between a customer and my company about a particular topic. Therefore I would it would really nice to specify a title like "Discussion with customer yyyy about topic xxxx" instead of only a "Export of Messages".

And my last suggestion would be to allow the export of selected messages into a directory with an index.html file. Basically the same as exporting a complete folder with attachements but only for the selected messages. Currently I'm using an empty scratch mail folder into which I'm copying the messages and then export the folder. Apologies, this feature is already there, but I couldn't find it.

Again, thanks for this great Add-On.

Really good, but there are... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is really good, but I think, need more feature... for example:
- export of index of the messages in a folder (HTML or CSV format) --> insert CC (carbon copy)
- html format with attachments --> don't use absolute link, I think if the program use relative links, I can copy to other location and the links in the html file is working.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.0.4). 

Thank you for the good hints, I will add those features in the new major version that I'm developing (unluckly much slower than I would like...)

EDIT: maybe I've misunderstood your requets, because I see both feature in the current version. Please email me to give me more details.

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 :)
