Hello Experts,
we are switching from Mozilla Thunderbird to Lotus Notes, now I would like to know if there is a way from Lotus Notes to import directly from Thunderbird and if not what I should to in order to import all the email?

Thank you
Roberto

Better not import directly into Notes. You can use Thunderbird as a mail client on the Domino server. I'm not 100% sure, but I assume you can do this:
- configure IMAP on the Domino server
- configure Thunderbird to use IMAP on the Domino server
- push all mails you received to the mail database on the Domino server

Can you just give me some hints where in Domino Server I can set up the IMAP? (Im really new in Lotus, and Im making experiments on a VM)

Thank you

The IMAP port config is in the server configuration document and to start the imap service just type "load IMAP" in the server console.

To have it start automatically your will need to add IMAP to the servertasks= line in the server's notes.ini

Other than that it is already integrated to mail, in that logging into the server will connect your imap to the mail file associated with the login account.

For running a simple import into the server inbox that should be all you need to copy from your thunderbird inbox to the imap inbox.

Just start IMAP the way doninja describes, and set up a connection in Thunderbird to test the connection. It should all be pretty straightforward indeed.
