I am exporting my Thunderbird address book to another computer with Thunderbird. I exported an address book using csv and the address book could be imported to the other computer but not the mailing lists. Is there a way to include the mailing lists in the export? Thanks

Hi,
Whilst I am not a Thunderbird expert by any means,
please ref; this KB article & the "How-to Export" a Mailing List.

Mailing lists are stored as part of the address book. Perhaps the missing mailing list was in a different address book.

Thanks for the help. The Knowledge Base article says that mail lists are not exported by Thunderbird. Does anyone have experience with the extension above, https://nic-nac-project.org/~kaosmos/morecols-en.html ? Thanks

See this post for a recent user's experience: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1255361

Note the correct URL for MoreFunctionsForAddressBook: https://freeshell.de//~kaosmos/morecols-en.html

Thanks for the correct URL for MoreFunctionsForAddressBook. The other URL worked to go to what appears to be the same page but I got a Bitdefender warning that something was not right, which was not reassuring. I also appreciate the link to users experience. It is assuring to know that others have used the extension. The directions on exporting and importing are most helpful. I will be installing and hopefully using the extension Thanks!

Success. The MoreFunctionForAddressBook worked. The menus are a little different than the usual Windows ones but I got there. The example in the Support Forum sited above used MAB and I did that also. I suppose that CSV would also work. Thanks to all and especially to the writer of the extension!

A FWIW re; Paolo's "other" site...
Apparently, he had a slight problem with "out dated" Certs & that is the warning that you may receive.
But, the site is safe to use.
You just have to add an Exception to your Certs.
or use/Bookmark his Home Page.
