error importing outlook 2003 settings

Posted

Trying to migrate from Outlook 2003 (not Outlook Express) on Windows 10 to current Thunderbird (60.something).

All goes fine except it gets a nondescriptive error when trying to in stall the settings. I'm assuming settings refers to the accounts Thunderbird is to check. Would rather not have to recreate all the accounts it checks manually as my settings are pretty complicated in Outlook.

What/where/how do I diagnose and/or get the settings imported?

Thanks.

perhaps use a version of Thunderbird that is closer to the ancient outlook2003.

There have been changes in the importer in the past couple of years. SO perhaps try something like V17 and see if it does better.

I have linked to an en us version here http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/17.0.9esr/win32/en-US/

Well that is something of a bummer.

ok lets try and get an error report of some sort.

open the error console (ctrl+Shift+K) clear it and start your import. Do you get a more specific error message?

Just remember that exchange mail settings are not imported, only IMAP pop and SMTP.
