Move Mails from Windows to Linux

User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird

Post Posted November 4th, 2003, 11:49 am

Hi all,
since a week I am using Mandrake Linux 9.2. Till then I've used Thunderbird. Now I want to use my old Mails from Windows in Linux too.
So, how can I convert/move my mails from Windows to Linux?

I tried to copy all files, but only the accounts where moved and not the folders.

Can somebody help me?


PS: Sorry, for my bad english. :|

Open up the prefs.js file in your profile and find all the lines that point to a specific directory. You must edit those to point to the Linux directory that the profile is stored in.
