Just installed SeaMonkey 2.53.12.

Unable to import from Thunderbird V103.0b1. SeaMonkey finds the TB profile folder but fails to do anything.

SM has created it's own Profile folder and has pulled the FF information.

Have created a new Profile Folder in SeaMonkey - copied the TB Profile folder and directed SM Mail to the new folder. Still a no go.

Where do I go from here guys. Any feedback appreciated.

Lots of internal changes in recent versions and you can't even go back to a TB 91 version. If IMAP I suggest recreating the account(s). Address books changed too and you probably need to import as csv.

Import Export tools 3.3.2 still work in SeaMonkey but be careful and check message counts both for export and import. I think there are still some bugs in this area and don't think all has been fixed even in central reading some of the problem reports in the newsgroups.

The last time I imported a TB version it was around 60. 68 might work too but starting with 78 things changed.

Thanks for responding. Have given up on the 'project' for now and moved back from Beta to Release Channel with TB.

Shame as I liked the look of SM but that's how it goes.

Again - thanks for your input.
