Converting Netscape to Thunderbird

My boss just purchased a new laptop and wants me to transfer some of the data from his old laptop to his new laptop. He has been using Netscape as an email application but would like to use Mozilla Thunderbird for security. I am only familiar with Outlook. Can Nescape or Thunderbird emails be "exported" or "imported" into one another? If so, how do find the Netscape email files to import into THunderbird? The import setting appear to recognize only Eudora and Outlook, would I be better off using these as "bridge applications"?

Greg,

This could be a round-about method but may be it would help. Can you export from Netscape to Outlook and then transfer from Outlook to thunderbird.. I donot use Netscape or thunderbird hence I am not so sure.

Outlook will allow me to import from Netscape mail 2.x or 3.x, but my boss has Netscape 7.2 running on XP. Even if I could download 2.x or 3.x, I believe that these are only configured to run 0n 95, 98 or NT.

Thunderbird has an import function in the tools menu. It wouldn't be too surprising if it can import from Netscape. There is a lot info to be found at www.mozilla.org .

Indeed, at first startup it asks if it should import data from Netscape....
