Can't import MBOX files

Skrevet

I installed Thunderbird specifically to import/read MBOX files downloded from Gmail. I installed the add-on (ImportExport Tools NG). When I navigate to Tools / ImportExport Tools NG / Import mbox file, nothing happens. According to other websites, Thunderbird should open another dialog box at that point with several options, but I get nothin'. Any suggestions?

If you first select Local Folders in the Folder Pane, then Tools / ImportExport Tools NG / Import mbox file, do you see the window as in the attached picture? This is working in TB 60.8/W10.

Somehow the Local Folders selection made the difference . . . I got the dialog box shown (wasn't getting it yesterday), and now I have a boatload of old messages dating back to '08! Thank you!

Right-click Local Folders, then select ImportExportTools NG/Import mbox file.

Hi, I can't even find the Local Folders in the Folders pane.

I get a list of Unread, Favorite, Unfiled, that's it. I'm trying to read mbox files from Yahoo Groups that I downloaded from Yahoo. Thank you for any help.

Local Folders is present in every TB setup, even if you haven't added any accounts. Select View/Folders/All; press Alt if the Menu Bar with View is hidden.

Did you once have accounts in TB and folders visible in the Folder Pane, but after a crash or update TB started as if it were a new installation?

With a new installation, the Folder Pane should look like the attached picture, before adding any accounts. I don't know why yours is empty, so I suggest you create a new profile from Help/Troubleshooting Information, click about:profiles, then click Create a New Profile at the upper left .
