This was a great add-on that I have used for several year. With the update to TB60, I have had to rollback to an older version to allow me to continue to use this add-on. As someone else said, it is a security risk, but this extractor is the only way I could keep my Thunderbird files from bloating to such large sizes that it degraded performance. It also allows me to find my attachments easily by having them in windows folders where various searches work well.
I love this. It has saved me much hassle, time, and allows me to better sort via the computer vs just in email software.
It has allowed me to purge old mail that was only kept for their attachments.
Lucky, i could and did downgrade to 52.7.0 (32-bit) from 60.2.1 -- I thought I had it working with 52.9.1, but it auto updated, and rolling back a second time AE didn't work. Perhaps restart again. --- EITHER WAY, TURN OFF AUTO UPDATES -- check "Never Check for updates" and uncheck "use background service to install updates" -- DO THIS BEFORE YOU ROLLBACK/DOWNGRADE. It updates fast.
Addons like this were what made Thunderbird great, but the devs killed them all with Thunderbird 60. Because "WebExtensions". Well, if you're waiting for the author of your favorite addon to update it so it will work with "web extensions", don't hold your breath. Chances are, porting it to WebExtensions is somewhere between painful and impossible. Just uninstall Thunderbird 60+, install Thunderbird 52.9.1, turn OFF automatic updates, install all your old addons, and live happily ever after. I know it's a security risk, but what choice do you have? We don't need Thunderbird. We need the addons. Without these addons, Thunderbird is just another email client. The devs don't seem to understand this.
Es una herramienta perfecta para los que manejamos gran cantidad de archivos adjuntos, la herramienta me ayudo a clasificar todo lo que tiene que ver con la facturacion electronica en Mexico pero con el lanzamiento de Thunderbird 60 ya no puedo seguir ocupandolo y les pido encarecidamente y de favor que lo hagan compatible ya que es una herramienta indispensable para muchas personas que ocupamos thunderbird
Was always a must have plugin, used it every day to extract multple attachments from emails with ease. This is something that should be an internal part of Thunderbird. Unfortunatly, now no longer works with TB60. Just hope developer does an update, or some one else takes it on. Would have given it 5 stars if it was still working.
