thunderbird v1 to v3 migration
Posted on 2010-09-15
i need to bring old TB v1 email files into TB v3.
most files i copied from Mail/Local Folders to the new host Mail/Local Folders and they just worked. but a few would not.
i thought it might be size, so i copied small pieces of the orig, but still on opening TB, the folders are empty.
i experimented with EOL, converting dos to unix, then unix to dos, no help.
working files in ImapMail seem to use pure unix EOL. some working folders in Mail/Local Folders use either or both.
TB is version 3.0.7, old ver is 1.something. running on mint linux.
any ideas would be appreciated.
