need to move Less than 100 emails from Mozilla Thunderbird to Outlook
Need very easy solution.

There is no export function in Thunderbird, and no utility I could find to just extract the email all at once.
I liked thunderbird but customer needs to move to outlook.

    Greetings yahoolane !

    You can use the Thunderbird extension, MailRedirect

    It will forward the desired emails to another address with IMAP or POP3 access and keep the headers correct.  Then Outlook can download to itself.

    If you don't have access to another account for them, you could use the extension ImportExportTools which allows you to export emails as .eml files, which you would then just drag and drop into the Outlook Express folder of your choice.  This does add another step because you then have to import into Outlook from Express, but it works.
