Export Thunderbird profile (with emails & saved data) to Outlook Email Program

Размещено

Unsatisfied with the Thunderbird email program that has replaced Windows Live Mail. I now want to export Thunderbird profile (with emails & saved data) to my Microsoft Outlook Email Program ASAP.

I thank you. I'll try some of the information you provided before I just unplug it and deliver it to my computer tech when he gets back. Thanks again

Perhaps what you needed to do was ask Microsoft how to import your mails into their products. That is how it works You do not export to a product you import from a product. For instance if you used outlook and have it installed when Thunderbird is first run it actually asks if you want to import outlook and just does it.

I hope you enjoy your outlook experience. I spend 4 hours yesterday recovering mail from a corrupt outlook profile for a friend would had spent the previous week working with Dell and Microsoft Support and getting no useful result. Outlook is not a panacea, it is a deeply flawed product that struggles to do email properly outside of a corporate Microsoft exchange environment it was designed to work in. It's popularity is more about ignorance as to options, and the fact they gave it away with MS Office for 20 years, than about the quality of the product for casual email use outside of a corporation.

If live mail met your needs, you perhaps should consider using web mail as around 80 or 90 percent of folks do. Thunderbird has a dated and simplistic interface that sort of hides an immensely complex and powerful mail management tool. Outlook, despite it's flaws is very similar in that regard, just with a corporate focus. Internet email is almost a bolt on extra.

You might also share what it is you don't like about Thunderbird. Perhaps the reasons you have for changing over are not really issues, just lack of knowledge as to what is available.

Hi If you are using IMAP your messages may be safely on the server. Check using webmail to see what is there and what is only in your Thunderbird local files. If everything is still stored online, you don't need to export/import messages. Address books - export from Thunderbird using Address Book - Tools - Export - then choose a file type that is compatible with the new email client (Outlook). Check online to learn what you need to do to import that file using Outlook import process. Account data - I suggest you set up the account in Outlook by looking at the existing account settings in Thunderbird, and entering the same settings in Outlook. Is there anything else that needs to be transferred?

If your email is POP, or for archives stored locally you may need ImportExportTools add-on or similar. Check add-ons for compatibility with your version of Thunderbird, and read the notes and comments. Back up the whole profile first, just to be safe. Agnes
