I'm moving from a WinXP computer to a new Win7 machine. Should I first switch from Outlook Express to Thunderbird on the old machine (and what's the procedure?) and them migrate to the new one, or set up Thunderbird on the new one and export the Outlook Express data from the old machine? Thanks.

I'm wanting to update my thunderbird adsdress book on my travel computer which I haven't used for a year with new addresses that have accumulated on my main computer during this past year. or if need be replace the travel computer address book with my main computer's address book, whatever works. Have windows 7. IOW I am not migrating to a new computer, and I don't want to just replace everything on the travel computer with new files, just want the address book there. It is ok, if it is a separate address book from what is already there, though it may be good to delete the old address book.

I am trying to switch from Outlook 2007 to Thunderbird. Everything is great so far, but I need to import my old emails from Outlook. When I go to Tools>Import>Mail I get options for Eudora, Outlook, and Outlook Express. The options for Eudora and Outlook are greyed out. The option for Outlook Express is available, but that's not even a option for me since I am using Windows 7.

I read some articles and they noted that you must still have Outlook installed and set as the default mail client. I have made sure that Outlook is set as the default mail client but the import option is still greyed out. I have tried restarting both Outlook and Thunderbird. I have also tried importing with Outlook open and closed.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have seen this problem posted several times without a solution and having fixed it, I am making the effort to let all know the answer.

Here is the error / problem: "The RETR command did not succeed. Error retrieving a message. Mail server pop-server.woh.rr.com responded: no such message."

I had this happen some time ago on another pop on RR mail server and logging in via Web Mail and deleting the emails worked BUT.. It happened again on another pop account and it did not work.. So... I nuked the pop via the master account and re-added it.. nothing so, I ran check disk thinking a FAT corruption NOPE, I restored a MOZBACK of Thunderbird from like a month ago Ziltch.. I called useless RR support and nothing!

FINALLY *Scratching Head*.. In there change your Junk mail options to "delete the email". I had one junk email stuck in there and after refreshing that page..That one Junk Email was gone and THEN Thunderbird worked checking that pop..

WAHLAH!

I hate when the simplest of things do not work and it pissed me off nobody had the answer.. HERE YOU ALL GO!

I have 2 email accounts in Thunderbird and would like to move the second one to the first position in the list. The second one is the one I use most often but when I share documents the first one always comes up first and I then have to manually change it. It would just be easier if the second one came up first
