Gmail Labels MBOX

Posted

Hi, I exported my Gmail with all of my Gmail Labels into an MBOX file. I am not able to figure out how then I can import the Gmail MBOX file into Thunderbird and keep all of the Gmail labels. I did this before in the past and am not sure why it is not working now. What it did in the past was create a separate file folder for each label. I have tried all the different import options and it just does not seem to be working. Also, if you can let me know if there is any third part software that would help. Thanks for you assistance!!!

If I recall correctly my gmail take out file was a zip file that had to be unzipped to the label files could be accessed. This add-on has been useful in importing mbox files to Thunderbird
