Hello,

I am trying to import a folder from windows live mail using the last version of the extension of the importexporttools. I have maybe 50 folders with emails in them. It imports all the folders but not the emails. I cannot figure out why. It did work for some but it seems to work randomly. There is something that I am doing wrong but I do not what. If I do only one folder at a time, it works but otherwise it import all folder and leave them empty. Do you know what is the way to do it?

Check what you are doing against the instructions in http://kb.mozillazine.org/Importing_folders . You'd normally import .eml files from Windows Live Mail using the current equivalent of "Tools -> ImportExportTools -> Import all eml files from a directory". The exact menu command changes dependent upon the add-on version. Perhaps you're attempting to import mbox files.

I found the issue. Apparently, when I was trying to import to many folder it was not working. However, when I am was trying to use more reasonable numbers of folders (like 20 or 30), it worked!!!
