I am trying to move all of my emails over from Windows Live Mail, and I am having trouble. I have release 78.1.1, just downloaded a few days ago.

The numbered items below are on a help page for Thunderbird (in https://support.mozilla.org/), with my problems interspersed:

"1. Export your messages from Windows Mail in .eml format." The "export" selection in WLM gives the options of exporting to Microsoft Exchange/Outlook, or Windows Live Mail or Microsoft Exchange/outlook. The former does nothing, the latter generated files that I put in "users\[me]\appdata\local\microsoft\windows live mail".

"2. In Thunderbird, create a folder in "Local Folders" to hold your imported mail and select it." I created the folder.

"3. Right click the folder and select ImportExportTools > Import all messages from a directory > also from its subdirectories." Right clicking on the folder just gives the "open, search,...properties" etc., no import/export tools. However, in the menu at the upper right, tools > import is an option. Selecting that asks me if I want to import from "Becky! Internet Mail" or "Outlook". I picked Outlook, and just got an "error, can't do this" message. I then picked Becky, which allowed me to proceed to step 4:

"4. Navigate to the .eml files folder. The default location for Windows Live mail is C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail (or \Windows Mail)." I navigated there, and after a bit it gave me a long error message that included "an error occurred importing mail...", "unable to find mail to import", "error importing [and then it named several, but not all, of my mail folders]". It created a folder "Becky! Internet mail" which has folders I recognize, but with no apparent sub-folders, and after about a half hour the blue circle is still going around... so I don't think this is going to work either.

What am I missing? Thanks! Carol

I followed the help article on finding the %appdata%\thunderbird\profiles\ to back up to Carbonite automatically so that if I get a new computer or have a crash all of my email folders would be saved. But when I search my computer for that, it finds nothing. Can you tell me where those folders are or if it could be called something else? I have millions of email folders that I really need backed up on Carbonite! Thank you.
