I should now have a Tools -> ImportExportTools -> "import mbox file" command. I don't. The add on shows in Add Ons window. The version is compatible with latest build and have restarted. Still no option in Tools that allows mbox import

wrong tools menu. It appears on the menu bar tools menu. (right click the toolbar and select menu bar.

Or create a folder to hold your imported mail and right click it to see an importexport menu . I generally suggest this method as there is no question where you are putting the import and you already selected it before you right clicked it.

Hi there

I have installed Thunderbird and added ImportExportTools. I'm not using Thunderbird as an email client. I need it to read and scan gmail mails as a backup only.

I need to open an .mbox file created by Google Takeout.

Problem is, no response from Thunderbird.

Screen shot of where I am in the menu.

Any suggestions?
