How do I quickly imports email addresses into thunderbird from windows live mail?

Posted

I've exported my contacts in vCard form but when I try to import them into Thunderbird I have to do them one by one. There seems to be no 'select all' option. There are too many to do individually. Any suggestions?

You do not open add on files and I only listed 1 add on. Download the file where you can find it. Go to the add-on tab in Thunderbird and click Extensions. Click the gear icon and select Install from file.

Go to link as advised by Airmail scroll to bottom Download 'MoreFunctionsForAddressBook' - 1.0b5 version (TB 14 - 59) store the .xpi file on computer eg: Downloads folder or on Desktop

In Thunderbird

  • Menu icon > Addons
  • click on gear wheel icon
  • select 'Install addon from file'.

see image below

  • locate the xpi file you downloaded and click on 'Open'

Once it is installed you might need to restart Thunderbird.
