Importing from MBOX?

Guest

Under XP, I had all my mail in Thunderbird, which uses the MBOX format. Under
Vista, I'm planning on moving to Outlook. It used to be that you could import
MBOX-format files into Outlook Express (under the guise of being from
Eudora), then import from there into Outlook.

However, Windows Mail no longer had the option to import MBOX-format files.
Does anybody know how I can get my Thunderbird message store into Outlook
2007?

Try renaming the files to give them a eml file extension and then drag them
from Explorer to an WinMail folder and drop them. See if that works.

This only shows the first message in the MBOX store.

See if my MBXtract program will extract the individual messages from the
MBOX store. I seem to remember it working, but I'm not sure.

You might have to give the file an mbx file extension just to get it to
recognize the file.
