See what formats you can *export* to from Thunderbird. Also see if you can
find anything on www.slipstick.com (search for import)

To quot Thunderbird,

How do I export e-mail messages to another mail program or computer?

Thunderbird's mail files are in the standard plain text "mbox" format,
which almost all mail programs can use or import. Many proprietary mail
programs have a function to import from Eudora, which also uses the "mbox"
format; this function should read your Mozilla mail files properly.

Your mail files are inside your profile (see the Profile Folder), in the
Mail and (if you use IMAP) ImapMail folders. Each mail folder (Inbox, Sent,
etc.) is stored as two files — one with no extension (e.g. INBOX), which is
the mail file itself (in "mbox" format), and one with an .msf extension (e.g.
INBOX.msf), which is the index (Mail Summary File) to the mail file. Tell the
other program to import mail from the file with no extension.

If you want to transfer a mail file to another Mozilla profile or
another installation of Mozilla, simply put the mail file into the other
installation's Mail folder.

Transferring Email from Netscape 7.1 to Outlook/Outlook Express

This is essentially the same procedure as described in the discussion I
cited. What I'd change about it is the advice to import the messages from
Outlook Express using Outlook's File>Import and Export function. I'd export
from Outlook Express using it's File>Export function. Importing with
Outlook will change the message received dates to reflect the time of
import.

Absolutely. I haven't been there for a long time, I just do it
automatically!

i have managed to wrangle my way around it after going
to the following site.
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Export_mail_into_Outlook_(Express)_or_Apple_Mail. ;

i used the long method of copying files from thunderbird profile to Eudora
and renaming as .mbx ext then exporting to outlook express and then finally
importing with outlook 2007. took a little while due to large amount of
folders and messages etc but done.

i think you lose some attachments though
