Hi all there,

I have MAC OS X YOSEMITE 10.10.5 and Thunderbird 60.9.0.(64-bit), in early version i Save emails in eml format using drag and drop at folder, by now I canĀ“t. Is only allowed save and select folder this way is too slow.

How I can fix it? I like very much drag ans drop is fastest.

Best Regards

That works here under Windows but it might be a Mac issue.
Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

If its not due to a bad add-on the ImportExportTools add-on lets you export all of the messages in a folder as .eml files. It also supports importing an entire directory tree of .eml files. https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... porttools/

Try installing a slightly older version of 60.* using custom setup in a different directory and see if it has the same problem. It should automatically reuse your existing profile. Perhaps http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/ ... mac/en-US/ ?

That will help identify if its likely to be a bug in Thundebrird, or something about the environment its running in.

Use one of the other methods.

That's bug 630152 - drag and drop creation of eml files doesn't work (Mac and Linux).

Add yourself to the CC: list and you can follow along to see when it is fixed.
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
