Very useful addon, especially the export function *with* attached files!
Thanks a lot!

Mbox Transfer Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add on, used with Thunderbird for easy unpacking of .mbox files that were created through webmail app Horde.

Thanks

Very useful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I particularly like the facility to export index of a folder.... it is helpful in my work to keep track of email correspondences.

I would request Paolo to add one more feature :
When I filter emails on some criteria, than the index of this filtered list should be available to me for export.
Right now, I can only get html version of this list by selecting the emails.
Thanks.

Very well done. Unfortunately, the scheduled backup does not seem to work (on MAC OS X 10.7 "Lion"). Nothing is ever backed up to the location I specified.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.3.1). 

About backup, please write to my email address (you can find it in my webpage), so that I can see what is going wrong.

Great add-on, makes importing emails from other programs effortless.

Can't handle exporting.

The program routinely crashes when attempting to export files to plain text.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.2). 

It's not fault of my extension

I know this problem, but I can't reproduce it.
Anyway it's related to a core program bug, this one:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=682916

This should be fixed in 2.6.3 version

Very useful addon, I used it to import 23640 emails from windows mail! :)
Succesfully managed to import all emails in eml format without errors, also in subdirectories. Note that I did not import all emails at once, but always one major folder at the time.. in any case my biggest folder (sent items) counts approx 10600 emails! And I did not encounter problems.

Missing EML export WITH full folder tree structure Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am waiting for a really usable export+import function for years. Originally I expected such a feature in Thunderbird itself but I lost my hope. The Add-On here is far away from being good.

I sorted all my approx. 100000 messages into a folder tree with approx 1500 folders.
Now I want to export them in *.eml format. So that a folder in Thunderbird is represented by a folder in Win7 (Linux). The export should take place in one step (not by having to export each single folder one-by-one).
Unfortunately this important core task is NOT possible with this Import/Export Add-on.
I got no feedback from the author if he is willing to implement this (easy) feature or not.

So I am still waiting for a real usable import/export Add-on

Exactly what I needed to export/import my emails in a new/clean profile, I'm still wondering WHY there isn't a default option for that in TB.

Very Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I stumbled upon ImportExport Tools sometime last year (2010) and have found it to be very useful. I especially like the ability to save email messages in different formats. The add-on has many other useful features as well.

Works like described, great, no beta for me. (2.6.2/TB5.0)
Only things missing is export folder structures to eml...

Ich kenne dieses sehr nützliche AddOn bereits seit vielen Jahren und Firefox-Versionen. Daher habe ich auch die experimentelle Version installiert und bin sie gerade am Einsetzen, um die Mails von meinem veralteten Profil zu exportieren und auf mein neues zu importieren.
Sehr empfehlenswert und zuverlässig - dadurch konnte ich meine ganzen Mails von Jahren retten.
Bislang sind unter TB 5 weder beim Export ganzer Postfächer noch beim Import einzelner Ordner mit Unterverzeichnissen Fehler aufgetreten.

Use it daily Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For an 'experimental' addon, it's been doing just what I want with no fuss or problems. I backup my entire profile at least once per day, depending on the volume of email I receive. I just manually delete the ones older than two days, but a setting for that would be handy.

howdy y'all,

a wonderfully useful addon. i use the import and export functions once or twice each month. the profile backup is pretty handy, too. the only gotcha is the lack of a profile restore - you must do that by hand.

take care,
lee

I only used its import function, but it was worth its weight in gold! Great work, thanks.

Great tool ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Worked very well for me on all basic tasks. Nevertheless, I've had to import a very large mail structure (lots of folders and mails), and the ImportTool kept showing me "Do you want to import...... [folder_path\folder]?". It had like 300 folders so it's been looooooong !! I'd suggest adding a "Yes to all" or "Import all" feature !
Congrats again and bye.

That option exists!

If I've understood well your situation, go at Tools --> ImportExportTools --> Options and uncheck the preference "Ask confirm before importing mbox files from a directory".

Great addon! I have been using this for over a year now. This does what I believe should be built-in to TB, but is not. This is one of the most valuable extensions out there to date. I was really looking forward to using the SMS import feature but it did not work for me with SMS Backup & Restore 3.9.5. The scheduled backup feature is also nice to have.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.1). 

Could you please send me by email one or more files generated by SMS Backup & Restore, so that I can make some tests?

An excellent addon. If you aware of backup your mail archive or move in out from Thunderbird, this is your extension.
