Thunderbird Plugin

Archiving emails from Thunderbird

Use the ecoDMS Thunderbird plugin to archive incoming and outgoing emails from Thunderbird. ecoDMS archives the complete email, including any attachments, in the standard mail format EML. The message content (without attachments) is additionally filed as PDF/A.

In Thunderbird there are various functions available:

  • Sending and archiving outgoing emails
  • Archiving existing emails
  • Archiving attachments only
  • Emails and attachments can be classified either automatically based on classification templates or manually by the user

Details about macOS: No PDF/​A ​files are generated via the ecoDMS Thunderbird plugin for macOS. Only the original e-mail is deposited as an EML file. This is not an error in ecoDMS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=675709
