I can't log in on the Thunderbird help site. Not sure why. It keeps asking for my Facebook or other account and I don't have any. I don't have a lot of time to read the on-line information although I did read some of it about the Windows transfer wizard and some non-Mozilla transfer program.

On an old computer with XPSP3, I have outlook express with about 20 saved messages, and Thunderbird 17 that I just installed. All information was successfully transferred, including the saved messages, from Outlook into Thunderbird 17. Both programs are working fine. New computer with Win 7 pro on the way and I'll be using Thunderbird. Is there a simplest way to move EVERYTHING from either outlook or Thunderbird on the old computer, to the new one, that you've recently used? Thank you.
