I have Lightning Email Templates that I need to deploy to 13 orgs, and rather than recreate them manually in each org I've extracted them with Data Loader, and now I need the Public FolderIds from each org to upload them to. When I do an extract of all Folders, I can't see the Lightning ones (Private or Public) - it lists only the Classic Email folders and it also doesn't look like the Document Folders are related to this.

Other than creating a dummy template and then extracting that to find the folder id, is there not an easier way?

I noticed that it also does not give an option to link to a Lightning Letterhead, which I have to manually go in and add afterwards. I might as well copy/paste in every org as it seems more work to do all the work around using DataLoader...Is the Lightning Email Template really so hard to deploy?

Our product Snapshot on the AppExchange migrates both classic and lightning email templates no problem. I am the CTO at Metazoa we build that product.


Ive spent a couple of days on this. Not giving up yet though. I finally found out how to retrieve them at least.

I used this sfdx command: sfdx project retrieve start --metadata EmailTemplate:/

Beyond this I cam stuck on how to get them deployed to the higher orgs. I know they have 2 parts - the .email file and the .flexipage file. When i try to deploy via Copado i get this error: You don't have the right to create Lightning pages of type EmailTemplatePage. According to SF documentation, these aren't deployable OR retrievable. But i retrieved. So I'm hoping I can find a way to deploy too.

Also - when i retrieved I saw a -meta file come over with the .email file. I put them in a folder so the template folder just came over too but that one doesn't have an associated -meta file like the other classic email template folders have.

Does normal change sets work?
