I have many fiters and a new mail account. Now I need to transfer them. I already tried the outdated plugin mentioned in Export Thunderbird filters to import them in gmail - but it doesn't work with my up-to-date Thunderbird version anymore.

enter image description here

Do I need to copy/paste some profile files or is there no way to copy/move filters from one account to another?


Copy msgfilterrules.dat from one profile folder to the other, it's that simple!

  • Does this also work across version differences and OS differences? – 0xC0000022L Aug 7 '20 at 11:16
