Transfer Mail & Folders from Thunderbird (OSX) to Windows Mail (Vista)
Posted on 2007-10-17
I have a number of systems, and having used POP accounts for many years, I am now switching to IMAP. For some reason, Thunderbird on the Mac isn't playing nicely with my IMAP account when it comes to moving my POP3 messages into the new IMAP account.
Therefore, I plan to move all my POP3 messages and folders out of Thunderbird and into Windows Mail running on my Vista machine. Thereafter I can simply move them all in to the IMAP account and sync everything from there (unless there is an easier way of getting them in to an IMAP account?).
However, Thunderbird doesn't appear to have an export function, and Windows Mail doesn't have an import from Thunderbird option - therefore I'm stumped as to how I can transfer all my email from one to the other.
Any pointers would be much appreciated.
