You can export address book data from Thunderbird to CSV, LDIF, or Tab Delimited formats. Open the Thunderbird Address Book by clicking on the toolbar button or pressing Ctrl+2, or use menu path Tools->Address Book. In the Address Book window use menu path Tools->Export->select the Save as type for the file format required. After that it is up to Outlook 2007 to provide import functionality for one of the three formats available.

That's an Outlook problem. Have you tried a forum dedicated to Outlook?

Those folks need to know about Outlook. We do not pretend to support Outlook in these forums. Sorry.

i mean that there is no instructions for such basic thing.
people might just want to check thunderbird and might decided to not use it at the end. then they will find that people didn't made such simple thing to explain how it's being done.

As one might expect, there are extensive instructions hereabouts for converting all manner of other e-mail applications' data files to Thunderbird.

To convert to another application, that is the responsibility of that application.

You will have to ask Microsoft for instructions on importing into Outlook.

In the meantime, try http://kb.mozillazine.org/Importing_and ... _your_mail

Wow, SK, way to represent a HELP forum :? If I were to ask you how to install Thunderbird would you tell me that I should check a Window's forum to see how to install software? If you don't know the answer then don't bother posting anything and wasting this poor guys time. And if you do decide to post a response at least offer some kind of helpful information rather.

------
In Thunderbird go to your Address Book
- Click on Tools - Export
- Export you address book to .CSV

Open Outlook
Click on File - Import - From Another program or file - Comma Seperated Values (Windows) - And select your exported Address Book.

Wow...was that soooooo hard. Worst moderator ever.
