How do I upload a Google Mail folder into Thunderbird for use & viewing
I was told by Google Help that I could export our mail folders from ex employees out of our Google Business Apps account but to open them up, they recommended Thunderbird.
I downloaded Thunderbird but cannot find any way to upload the archived email folders from Google into Thunderbird for viewing and use.
Can someone provide steps or a link to help that will get me started? Or explain what I'm doing wrong or overlooking?
You need to view the folders of the ex-employees' accounts, so you need to know their logins.
Add their accounts to Thunderbird and then you can move their messages from their accounts into a current account, also set up in Thunderbird.
I suspect your difficulty is that you don't know their login particulars…
The point of using Thunderbird, or any similar email client, is that you can access two or more accounts within the client and move data between them. The googlemail web interface doesn't allow this, hence the suggestion from gmail to use an email client.
