I need to share info of my mailbox. That is, I need to send somebody the contents of what I have in a particular folder. But not the content itself, just an overview of the mails. Best would be the same info as what I can see when looking at the folder (Sender, time, subject, etc), but in a text format (plain text/CVS/something_similar)

When I look for this I just get results about exporting mails, but I only want to export the meta data, so to speak. Is this doable?

Check out Kaosmos's ImportExportTools extension for Thunderbird. It has many additional import and export functions, including what sounds to be what you're looking for:

  • export of index of the messages in a folder (HTML or CSV format)
