The company I contract with has thrown me a problem and I need some help resolving it. I have searched many internet sites and have seen many apps that claim to do the job of moving mbox to .pst or eml. I've seen procedures to move 1 email at a timr to Gmail and then importing to Outlook (onerous). I have no idea if any of the apps will do the job or not. Some claim to migrate folders and I have lots of those I would like to keep.

Problem - I have to migrate to Microsoft Outlook 2016 (Later on to 365).

I currently use pop mail and store my messages locally. I have close to 1gb of messages stored in the POP Mail folder and I guess some old mail in an imap mail folder. The dates are messed up, because I had a Thunderbird crash and had to reinstall and import via a backed up profile.

What is most important is what is in my current inbox and multiple folders I use on my desktop. I can live without the rest.

So can anyone recommend a way either via a reliable app, or manually to migrate my inbox and local folders to Outlook from Thunderbird?

Thank you.

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04, Thunderbird 78.13.0 and Thunderbird 68.7.0

I have an old mailbox on my local drive in the form of deeply-nested, named .sbd folders with with mbox sub-folders which I would like to access via Thunderbird, whilst maintaining the folder names and structure.

I have tried using the importexporttools_NG add-on but at best that imports my 980+ folders as numbered mboxes with a flat structure.

Is there a way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

I have had this issue before and uninstalling and reinstalling has fixed it in the past. Today when I opened firefox it prompted me to update , which I did without thinking. Subsequently, it stopped working. I have tried: restarting my PC, running in troubleshooting mode( it wouldn't even open when I tried this), uninstalling and reinstalling using the internet installer, uninstalling and reinstalling using the offline installer ( tried on multiple hard drives, so I don't think hardware failure is the issue), installing an older version of fire fox, and installing the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version. The attached images show what displays upon trying to launch firefox. nothing loads, not typing an address into the search bar, not clicking on a bookmark, the only UI element that will display is the 3 horizontal line setting menu.

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

When I installed this update, there were many problems and still are. I had to make up all new Profiles to accept the new IMAP download specs. When I installed this update, it cleared out every email had in every folder as well as the folders themselves and just started w/ an empty slate.

I left the old data in place just in case of this possibility. I think I can find the old and new data files. However, I still need some way to mesh all the data in just the single file.

My main concern in attempting this merger is that I could lose over a decade's worth of customer contacts, etc. I will make two backups of every file in a safe place before starting.

The one that is most pressing is the Inbox. If I can get that to work, I should be able to repeat for the folders also. So I have lost all my emails some of which are very important and years old are all just gone! Inbox, Sent, sub-folders I made to help find a needed file quickly, etc.

Does anyone know a way to merge the "before" and "after" files?

Any and all help appreciated! Wolfgang

I had saved some emails and I did put them back in thunderbird (copy + paste) whithin my profile, I did not use another profile. When I had them back, thunderbird could not connect to my internet-server. I tried to get another password from my internet service provider but I saw that they did not support thunderbird as an email-client. How can I reconnect to the server? I have a backup of thunderbird maybe I should install the whole program?

I migrated Thunderbird to my new computer (both run Win 10, both Tbird 78). Owing to warranty issues with the new computer requiring a new mother board and other issues, I ended up with several MS user accounts and several Thunderbird profiles. In the installation of Thunderbird on the new computer I was missing all my old archived emails which I had kept in "Mail\Local Folders" in their profile on the old computer. I located them and copied them into my new profile on the new computer. I did this by first copying the contents of "Mail\Local Folders" to This PC\Desktop ( I didn't want to compromise those files), then deleting them from Local Folders then copying the contents of Mail\Local Folders from the old computer into Mail\Local Folders. This was successful. However, the files I copied to the desktop included some archives, in a number of sub-folders, which are more recent than the ones restored and I am not sure how to add them back to those newly restored archives. On my desktop I now have 2 shortcuts called Archives.msf and Archives.sbd. The deleted contents of Mail\Local Folders are available to restore from the recycle bin. Can someone please explain how to put the newer archives back into the appropriate subfolders of archives in Local Folders?

I can't find any way to import emails from windows live mail, which will has stopped working. ImportExportTools NG is not compatible with my version (91.1.1 (64bit)) and I cant find any other import add-on. Clicking on Local Folders in thunderbird and selecting "Import from another program" has no option for windows live mail. Only Outlook Seamonkey Becky. I can access the folder in appdata with all the .eml files, but drag drop doesn't work either. Please help. I need to recover important messages. Windows live mail has stopped working, and I have tried everything to fix it. What's annoying is that I successfully imported all email into thunderbird on another user on the same pc a while ago! Windows 7

Hello, I have the following issue - I am moving to a new computer and want to move my emails with me. My Thunderbird on my old computer is configured to a POP3 server, and I have stored my emails on disk D, while Thunderbird is installed on disk C. I have transfered both my accounts folder (as described by Thunderbird help) and also transfered my emails folder. The moment I open Thunderbird on the new Computer it renames all my emails subfolders and when opening a mail it says the "file not found" on every email I had.

Please help?

Kind Regards, Alexander
