I tested this tool for several months and have to say that saving to PDF format is working improperly in most cases. There is no way to add proper bookmarks and embed attachments. I found another tool called Data Extraction Kit for Outlook and it was also on giveaway, so I have a better solution now.

Thanks GOTD for the personal revelation. Until today I had not realised how dumb I am.
I do not understand how to use this program. I've watched the video half a dozen times and it appears to show emails being converted from the Documents folder, not as might be expected, how to download emails and convert them from an email address. Would it have been too difficult to show a video instructing how to get emails off an email address?
Also, inputting my gmail address sets off Norton.
I may top myself.

Arny, Because it only works with Thunderbird versions 14.0 to 60. These are very old and outdated.

Will this work with Thunderbird?

Interesting program. I find it very useful. But $159.00 is WILDLY Overpriced.

For occasional email saving - (well from Outlook) doubleclick to get the email in a separate window, and then use the basic File Print selection and select the "Microsoft print to PDF" output.
No cost other than windows and the email handling app.

A good idea but "clunky" and slow to read the emails.
The GUI is .... not easy to use or understand.
I added my Gmail and then found that all the folders were ticked, I had to manually untick each one and just leave the one I wanted to convert to PDF. I then selected 10 emails and converted them to one PDF file. Some emails were just a mess, most images were not printed and it failed to convert PNGs.
I should add that the first time I tried selecting 10 emails, I still had a tick in INBOX, and even though I had selected 10 it did them ALL. Or at least 103 before I managed to cancel.
Sorry a great idea but needs more work!
As they say "I'M OUT!"

For now I backup ALL my emails using MailStore Hope Portable (FREE).
I can then very easilly, and much faster, navigate to the email I want and print it to PDF.
MailStore Home gives you the option to download any embeded images before printing.
You can only print one email at a time, but I have them all saved to my hard disk.

My hard drive has a far longer life than cheap flashdrives?

But of course I also have BACKUPS that is not what we are talking about here.

I backup al my emails to my hard drive from the cloud, where I have many years worth of emails.
I then backup to another PC (well to it's hard drive) and I also backup to an external USB HDD that is then stored remotelly.

I also used to backup to DVDs and keep them in stored in a separate building but I stopped that when I realised that DVDs only seem to last years rather than decades. I can still read some CDs that are about 30 years old but have lost many newer DVDs (and CDs) due to damage or the surface flaking off.

So - backup to HDD and transfer to a new (bigger) one in a few years.
I tend to use SyncBack Free but I have a few different apps.
And keep multiple copies.

Does it suport also Thunderbird ? Thank you !

Tested and works amazingly well for bulk conversion !

For less demanding Gmail users there's a brilliant extension called "Convert Gmail™ to PDF (locally)" available for Firefox ,Edge Chromium

Take care

Installed OK
Couldn't get it to work.
Went to: Add email put in gmail address and password got an error I could not resolve.
Went to same place again put in gmail now it only asks for gmail address and not password and says sign in with google clicking on that also produces an error
Everything else seems to be greyed out.
I already save my emails locally using thunderbird but thought this might be useful.
I give up too much time wasted!
This is not a compliant but feedback to the developers.

Evernote does this.

Does the program convert all the emails with their HTML content (including images)?, or it will show red crosses? Thank you in advance for this info.

Adams, Ok, I did not get any answer, so I had to download , install and answer myself. The program can't download HTML email content, so in each pdf file you can see only grey crosses. I've tried all settings which unfortunately didn't help. It is not worth so much as it cost.

Why is the software as heavy as 139MB ??? If all user-installed softwares are as heavy what space would be left for files?? Nice effort for those who need proof of emails received or sent because mails can be deleted from inboxes sometimes from sender.

All said, the software is still pretty worth the while but owners should work on reducing the piece to be at least half of it's size!
