Good tool. However, I cannot get it to export (to eml) the emails in the Trash or Junk folders. Any suggestions?

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.

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

Xubuntu 13.10. Thunderbird 24.2.0. ImportExportTools 2.8.0.4. 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...

Grazie

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 2.8.0.4 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 2.8.0.4 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

How do I export EMLs without underscores in their file names when using ImportExportTools 2.8.0.4? 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 2.8.0.4 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 2.8.0.4.

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.

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!
