Experts,

I've successfully imported my emails from Outlook into Thunderbird, but what about other folders?  I've imported "Contacts", but I don't see a folder by that name.  What about reminders and calendar entries?

Hello NigelRocks,

If you install Thunderbird in the same computer as Outlook, contacts will be imported into the Address Book.  It is not shown as a folder like Outlook.  Click on Address Book in top menu.

Thunderbird natively does not have Calendar.  You need to add the Addin Lighting.

Then you can import the calendar items from Outlook.

Hope this helps!

OK, I've downloaded and integrated Lightning, but I still don't see how to import the calendar from Outlook.

I don't see where Thunderbird has an option to import an archived file.
