No import tool! Only export. Extremely difficult getting this to install, spent considerable time reading various articles before finding out how to get this to run or to find it in TB menus. Then, there is no Import option! This tool is useless.

The new version 3.3.1 cannot be downloaded, mozilla keeps offering 3.3.0 which is not compatible with thunderbird version 60.4.0.
Great add on when it works, use it to archive all important mail as pdf's

3.3.1 version is waiting for approval here, it will be available soon I guess.

I absolutely love this plugin, but it is now broken after Thunderbird 60 update. Hopefully the developer can fix it and then it would go back to 5 stars!

Sadly, the save to... feature stopped working for v60.x
It is particularly useful because of the way that the pdf file name is constructed - so that one can distinguish files. The other Save as feature (not by Paolo) is limited to eml format and simply uses the subject - given that can have the subject can have many "re"'s and so on it makes it quite ineffective.
Sadly, have to give it a single star, because even though the documentation claims to to support TBv60, it does everything to choosing the folder to save to, but then when you look, there is nothing in the folder.
In an era when our mailboxes are filled to the brim with junk, such a feature is very important.
The developers of TB argue the reasons why such a save to PDF is not possible, but then clarify that this applies to saving all emails - why one would want to do that is beyond me. The mind boggles.

PDF export should be fixed in 3.3.1 version, that has been uploaded now

Save as PDF option does nothing after the latest update. Other formats work fine

Only need it for converting individual messages to PDF, and that, in the Dutch version at least, just does nothing. You get the two standard PDF warnings, but no save dialog (like in the other save to actions).

Great tool! Unfortunately no pdf-export possible since TB 60.3.

I'd deleted my tesco mailboxes (as Tesco no longer provide email or web services), foolishly deleting the associated archives. This tool worked perfectly for me and recovered them from my profile folder.
ps was running version 59. Just updated to 60.3, add-on still visible and not showing incompatibility

WON'T INSTALL.. "THIS VERSION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THUNDERBIRD 60.3.0.".. garbage waste of time.

Other folks speak highly of this useful app - but on my PC running TBv60.2.1 it won't load even. I get an error message from Mozilla - "...not compatible with 60.2.1..."

Summary
--------------
Pretty solid plugin, does the job, could have more polish (weird warning message grammar) and improved in a number of ways.


Detail
--------
I have tested to being used to back up and restore an Outlook exchange mailbox. A few things missing and non-intuitive and the English grammar of the messages is ambiguous (translated from Italian loses the warning messages' precision, it seems).

The biggest annoying thing about it is that when restoring from mbox files, even if you have exported the directory structure, the process flattens the structure, so all directories are in the root. The only way I found to prevent this was to not scan sub-directories when importing, and manually importing each directory which has sub-directories. This would be the biggest thing to fix (or make it obvious how to do this, if it is possible already).

The other thing is the export process. A warning is given for an IMAP mailbox:
"You're exporting the local copy of a IMAP or NEWS folder.
The local folder could not have all the messages present in remote folder.
Do you want to continue?"
.... so, does this mean that the export "does not" have all the messages or "might not" have all the messages?

If the plugin could advise on the process on ensuring that messages are included (sync and storage settings, perhaps?) or do this automatically for the user, that would be great.

Even just changing the wording in the warning and adding an explanation to the message would be useful!

However, the software seems pretty solid.

Trying to import from mbox, immediately throws an error (before I have selected anything)
Javascript Application
Impossibile to import in this folder (imap or newsgroup type)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Mbox file import just creates an empty folder without any messages in it.

Tried exporting entire locally cached mailbox to which I lost access, doesn't work. Tried importing hierarchy representing a mail account. Apparently that's not possible: you have to create every folder manually and import separately. Tried importing a single email into an Exchange mailbox, no go, and no error message either.

Seriously useful tool! I have a client whose super-tedious solicitor wants all conversations grouped together as one giant chronologically-sorted document?!

Because the useful email is interspersed amongst other personal mail and spans Inbox and Sent, a virtual folder (saved search) did the necessary filtration...

The add-on did produce a series of PDFs (including attachments) of this virtual folder, which was great, but it did not produce any output when rendering as plain text (individual or grouped)

There is a bug I could not immediately identify with an array (that stores the messages?). I include the error message, any help with this would be very much appreciated!

saved me from printing in pdf of 200+ emails, essential for the book keeping...

one wish: if it could print the emails in a single pdf or email.... that would be superplus....

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Misses most embedded images and many attachments. This forced me to do a manual scan thru each mbox and save them explicitly.

The program cannot even copy straightforward text-format messages from the MBOX to individual files (exporting as plain text) reliably. Numerous newline characters were stripped. It is easier for me to work with the MBOX files in a text editor when I want to do things in bulk.

In sum, it is faster to work without this add-on than with it.
