FEBE for Thunderbird

Postby eleje » Wed Mar 08, 2006 4:31 pm

i think FEBE is one of the greatest little things for firefox. It would be also a great extension for thunderbird. quasi a TEBE. i hope this will be possibile in the future.

thx and greetings from austria

I second this request. Febe appears to be easy to use, and works just as well as Mozbackup has for me.

To be able to backup thunderbird extensions/emails/themes would be a perfect addon.


Thanks for a great extension!

You extension is one of the best ever - at last something for those of us who like to be backed up in case of disaster. Please port it to Thunderbird! And I for one would be willing to pay a small donation for both. :o

TEBE, yes, please. The sooner the better. This is by far the best back-up option around. Much better than MozBackup.

TEBE for FEBE

A supplemental extension for FEBE that supports Thunderbird is slated for FEBE 5.0. It will be a companion extension much like CLEO is.

I guess you could call it simply an "Extension to FireFox Extension Backup Extension for Thunderbird Extension Backup" extension.:?

Looking forward to it. FEBE is the one extension that no-one should be without. TEBE will surely be same. Thanks again Chuck.

Now, one year later, we have version 5.1, but still no option to backup the Thunderbird account data (account names, passwords, add ons) and contacts. It shouldn't backup the emails, that will be far too much, it can be a huge amount of data if you haven't compacted your folders for a long time. Or, if this option will be present, compact first, then backup.
But the most important thing is: Backup add ons, backup the account data, backup contacts. I have various email addresses, and as TB logs in autmatically, I don't remember all the different access data. aAnd many many contacts, but do I know their addresses by heart?!

Of course there is a security issue: This way somebody could steal your access data and install it on his own compute, but: when this guy has access to your computer, and TB logs in automatically, he could read the mails on your computer as well. If TB doesn't log in, he can't steal the access data. An option would be to store the data encrypted (not by default, only when the user wishes so).

Chuck, how are your plans for "TEBE"? Or is there already any other tool out there which can do something similar, which I missed?

Most likely ... but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
