Finally found a way to create a browseable archive of Thunderbird folders

For literally years I have been looking for a way to create an archive of a Thunderbird folder that is easy to access without having to import it back into Thunderbird.  In other words, I want to be able to share a whole email with someone without having to print each email, etc.  I finally found a Thunderbird Add-on that allows me to highlight all the emails in a folder and then with one click output all of the emails as individual HTML files along with an index html file which lists the Subject, To, From, and Date for each email and has a link to each individual email file.

ImportExportTools (MboxImport enhanced)

I have probably spent a total of 10-15 hours over the years looking for ways to do this, so it is quite a relief to find something that appears to work!
