Hello!

I've added so many message filters to my Thunderbird 78.6.0 they works well so I need to export them for backup. I couldn't find any compatible version of extensions so I need your help.

Thank you,

Gabor

No extensions needed to backup that data. Message filters are stored in a file named "msgFilterRules.dat" which can be copied and stored outside the profile as a backup. Each email account in Thunderbird will have its own such file so if you have multiple accounts you will want to store the files in a way that associates them to their respective account.
