Using PST converter pro to convert old outlook files. Cannot find the function in thunderbird 52.9 to import the converted data. I took the mbox option. Thank you.

Very many thanks for your help. Downloaded the importexport add on and set up the transfer. Used the import messages in the end. The mbox file seemed to have disappeared! Works a treat.

In reply to your private message, try via the Tools option on the Address Book's menu.

I think you'll need to select a specific address book (e.g. Personal Address Book) before the import option becomes available to you.
