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 v126.96.36.199 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.)
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 (188.8.131.52).
Excellent tool - but HTML attachments are broken under 184.108.40.206! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Attachments are not exporting with "HTML (with attachments)" or "Text (with attachments)".
I uninstalled 220.127.116.11 and re-installed 18.104.22.168 and it works under the previous version.
There was a bug in 22.214.171.124 version that broke this function with IMAP accounts. Now it's fixed in 126.96.36.199 version.
Thanks for you report.

Works exactly as advertised. Only quirk I noticed is that every so often an attached email is imported without the sender name (just displays "--" in the Sender column). But that's a minor flaw for such a useful add-on. So handy to be able to finally do this. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52).
most excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please make this available for Firefox 21 ASAP! :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11).
Worked really well! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I needed to export the emails 'sent messages' folder on an old email server to the 'sent messages' on the new email server. This was just the tool for the job, and it worked really well.It could've provided some info about how to import the file to an imap folder on an account (importing it to a local folder and then moving or copying the emails from there to the imap-folder you want), otherwise it was awesome!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
Works flawlessly Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have 2 email accounts. For those, I just moved over 200 messages from my laptop to my Desktop PC, in 2 exported files. I've also exported all my Desktop Local email, by year, by account, with folder structures. This is in Windows 7 64-bit, using Thunderbird 17.0.5. I could not ask for more. This application overcomes my one misgiving about using Thunderbird in place of Outlook.
Export doesn't export all emails in the folder... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Seems like a good tool but I notice that when I select all messages in a folder and export them or do an export of a whole folder, it doesn't export them all. Is it ignoring messages which are earlier parts of other emails? i.e. is it exporting only the latest part of each separate conversation?
* I email email@example.com: "Hi Joe, how's things?"
* Joe replies "good and you?" and I file the email into the folder (let's call this email # 1)
* I reply to Joe "not bad, can't complain. What are you doing after work today?"
* Joe replies "I'm working late tonight" and I file that email into the same folder as the earlier one (lets call this email # 2)
Under the above example scenario, does the ImportExportTools add-on only export the email with Joe's second reply (email # 2) and skip the earlier one (email # 1) because it is a part of the later one? I need to know this before we can use the add-on with confidence. Please advise.
Doesn't Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
STILL does not work. Performing an export and reimporting it causes corruption. At minimum duplicate messages, but scrambled and nonsensical data happens sometimes as well. Developer ignores the problem (my emails have been met with no response). Is ANYONE using this? I hope not, because you are losing data.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124).
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Confirmed: duplicate folder name issue exists with all versions of ImportExportTools even if it is the only add-on enabled.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199).
Please write to my email address (you will find it in my webpage) and give me more details: for example the name of the folder(s) that you can't import and the name of folders in the account.
Excellent - when needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Not an addon for use day in and out. But when needed e.g for import of deleted-hard retrieved emails it's really a gem
Thank you Paolo
Many mail accounts Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I have two accounts, and many mails in a few folders. I can export mails in .eml format to one folder (defined in options). What I want is to make a backup of all messages of those two accounts in separate folders depending on what account and folder is backed up. Now it's impossible -- I have to click on every folder in thunderbird, select import/export, and change folder in options. Then I have to do the same for all my message folders.
You also gave awesome feature like auto-backup, can you develop it, so it could back up every single mail in .eml format? After exit, it could compare selected folders and add new mails to backup folder.
This addon is really great, but I need to store all my mails in separate files. I hope you will add what I'm asking for. Take care.
Great tool to import .eml files! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As someone who has worked on the Thunderbird e-mail client and now the Gaia e-mail client, the ability to import an .eml file someone sends me to reproduce bugs is invaluable. Thanks for the great and very useful add-on!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52).
Will not export more than one folder of emails to html Rated 2 out of 5 stars
If you want to export email to html and have thousands of emails inside hundreds of folders, this is not going to help. No joy. When exporting emails to html with attachments, it will successfully export ONE flat folder. In other words exporting one folder of emails works well.
What fails is trying to export emails inside several folders. The tool starts to say something like 'exporting files' or whatever it says, then just hangs. Nothing happens. Even if there are only a dozen emails in a couple of folders. It hangs.
I noticed that others reported the same problem. My opinion is after trying different settings until late into the AM last night. No joy.
This is good, however, if you want to export several emails inside one folder.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
No option exist to include the whole mail subject when exporting the index of a folder. Only the first 49 letters are included.
Edit: As Paolo wrote, this can be adjusted in the settings.
Thanks Paolo. This works just as I wanted it to. :)
You can find that option in ImportExportTools preferences panel (maximum subject length)
Incompatable with FF 18 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Won'r install. Firefox 18 says it's not compatable.
In fact, ... this is the second time I've tried to install TB to replace WLM and the second time I just ran into an insoluable mess.
You must install it in Thunderbird, not in Firefox, please read this:
Automatic Backup? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hi,I wonder if you could help me please.I am using your latest version of ImportExportTools to do a daily backup of my whole profile of Thunderbird Portable running in Dropbox across several computers in different places.It is working very well thank you but I can only do the backup manually after Thunderbird is shut down? Is it possible somehow to have it do the backup automatically in the background while Thunderbird is running or even to do the backup automatically when I close Thunderbird?I have looked through the options but can see no way to do this, am I missing something obvious please?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks,Bob Green, UK.So can I presume from the deafening silence one month on that's it a "No you can't, or you do not intend to add the option even if it is possible?"An answer would be appreciated if possible otherwise what is the point of this page????Regards, Bob Green.
Thank you for the reply it is much appreciated, I did assume it would be rather unlikely to organise. They sound like good ideas if possible, at present I have it set to backup all profile files once a day [24hrs] when the programme exits which is far, far easier than trying to automate MozBackup to do it!
Thank you, Bob Green.
First of all, excuse me for the late reply.
It's impossible, at present, to do the backup in background, because the backup requires the copy of big files and it would block the main thread.
I can consider the idea to add a way to do a backup on demand and/or every time you close Thunderbird.
I will try to add this feature in next updates, but I'm not sure when it will be ready.
Cool Export Tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Eml-Export works cool, but "html with attachement" stops exporting when processing an email with an attachment, that is not really attached to the mail.
The mail lists the attachments, but you cannot open it.
a recursive "html with attachement" to process subfolders would be great.
