I have Version 2007 of Outlook and I need easy to follow instructions to move everything to Thunderbird.

Chosen solution

The first picture requires that you choose the current active TB profile. In most cases this is named 'default', but yours may be default-release or something else. The TB profile folder can be found under Help/Troubleshooting, about:profiles. Once you know the location, close TB, click the Browse.. button in MailStore and select the profile folder.

Otherwise, you could export from MailStore to eml files, or possibly have success with the built-in Tools/Import option in TB.

I think the easiest way is to import the Outlook mail to MailStore Home, then export it to eml files that can be imported to TB by simple drag and drop to Local Folders.
