problem importing eMail folders from Windows Live Mail 2012

Posted

Hi. I am having problems importing eMails & folders into Thunderbird from Windows Live Mail 2012.

I have installed add-on ImportExportTools 3.2.5 from Kaosmos but when:

>> The best way to import .EML files is with the ImportExportTools add-on, it lets you import all of the .EML files in a directory in one step using "Tools -> ImportExportTools -> Import all eml files from a directory" <<

The Import all eml files from a directory is 'greyed out'

Any advice gratefully received. Thank you. BRgds

Thank you Matt (apologies, only just seen yr response). Your solution works, but it would seem I have to do same for each 'single' folder at a time ?? I have an awful lot :-( I was hoping it would do all my folders (and sub folders) in one go. Thanks again for reply. ATB
