is there a way to export message filters from Thunderbird and import them to gmail? I tried the "message filter import/export" add-on but gmail is not able to understand them.

@dierre- No. The filtering capabilities of Thunderbird are entirely different then those of Google Mail. – Ramhound May 28 '13 at 15:49

Try this addon, I hope It'll help (may not work with thunderbird version 17.0.8)

It is unsupported for a year, and won't allow import in gmail. -1 – mveroone Sep 27 '13 at 9:19
