Hello,

I'd like to find out the best way to migrate email from the following client to Outlook.

1.  Mozilla Thunderbird
2.  Outlook Express

I have some users that use one or the other and want to get them to Outlook as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Hello,

Are these clients connected to the mail server with POP? Do the clients leave the mail on the server or do they delete after downloading? If all the mail is on the server, just configure Outlook to connect and it will download a copy of everything. If everything is local, you will need a 3rd party tool to convert the Tunderbird mail file to PST format, such as http://www.aid4mail.com/export-thunderbird-to-outlook.php or http://www.catasoftware.com/thunderbird-converter/

Outlook Express is easy as it uses the same PST format as Outlook. Just open the PST file in Outlook.

Hello,

Outlook express on xp used .dbx files.  They are located in a store folder.  I want to setup outlook but do not know how to import those messages into a local pst via outlook.

Thanks,

Kyle
