I have been using MS Windows Live Mail and I hate it, I want to try Thunderbird but when I click on import mail I don't have an option for importing Windows Live Mail. What can I do? Also I am having send problems. Help please.

To import messages from MS Windows Live Mail install this extension in Thunderbird -- https://nic-nac-project.org/~kaosmos/mboximport-en.html

To install a Thunderbird extension do the following:
Right click the download link on the extension's home page and choose "Save Link As...". Then, in Thunderbird, go to Tools->Addons->Extensions tab->click on the "Install" button. Navigate to the just downloaded .xpi file and select it. Click on the "Open" button. The installation will now begin. You will need to close and reopen Thunderbird to complete the install.

Use the "Import eml files" option from the added submenu under "Tools".

What, exactly, is the problem with sending? What error message are you seeng? Who is your email provider?
