As of yesterday, new emails from one regular correspondent do not appear in the list of messages when I click on Inbox. The only way I can access them is to use "Edit/Find/Search Messages". They are still in Inbox, they haven't been moved to another folder. Thunderbird version is 31.6.0.

migrate netscape emails to thunderbird

I am looking for the easiest (not necessarily the fastest) way to export 8,000 old emails from Netscape Mail 7.2 to Thunderbird.

I want to export this mail from Netscape on an old PC to a new PC. The new PC already has Thunderbird but I am worried that a backup and restore process on netscape may overwrite the 12,000 (different) emails on this new machine with old email from the old machine.

I just don't understand the process to create new profiles etc and not sure whether Thunderbiord could cope with the combined 20,000 new and old email on the one version of Thunderbird.

Just a list of .emls (stored externally from Thunderbird) would be fantastic so I can use Notepad to read. But when you select more than one email in Netscape the 'Save As' option is not available !

thanks in anticipation.

I've used Firefox and Thunderbird since their inception, and Netscape before that. I am Not a 'newbie' user. Recently, Thunderbird stopped connecting to my server. The app lights up green as it searches for the server for a minute or so then stops after not connecting. I've tried re-configuring the server connections in 'tools' to the recommended settings on the Mozilla site. I've made sure my firewall isn't blocking the app. I've used Revo-Uninstall to completely uninstall the app and re-installed after system re-start - several times. I've tried running it with add-ons disabled. Nothing works. Thunderbird still won't connect to my mail-server. I use Comcast internet and mail and that is the only email I have configured for Thunderbird. My email through Comcast online works fine. Please help!

edit: removed your mail address from public display, since the only thing it will attract are spam bots. you will be notified per mail once somebody replies to the thread. (philipp)
