Transfer email from Thunderbird 2 to Thunderbird 3

Q: Transfer email from Thunderbird 2 to Thunderbird 3


I've been using Thunderbird 2 portable on my USB-stick for a long time, but now I've downloaded and installed Thunderbird 3 beta 1 (normal installation, not portable). Is it possible to transfer all my email from the portable version to Thunderbird 3?


Preferred Solution: Transfer email from Thunderbird 2 to Thunderbird 3

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can I import old emails from XP machine to the Win 7 one. Both run Thunderbird

I use Thunderbird on one computer, and would like to use it on another household computer. I have downloaded the software and all the information from the first computer, and I need to know how to fill in the blanks on the second computer. (I have learned from techguy that my ISP RCN does not support this e-mail software, and even if it did their line is always busy.)

I thought I could just walk from room to room and fill in all the blanks, but so far I can't find server settings. I go to tools, then account settings, but server settings doesn't appear.

I'm using XP.

Can you help?

hi , first post here on this forum but i have been stalking in the corner for a while
i have a dual boot with windows XP SP3 , and windows 7.
and i might just say that windows 7 is very nice
i am trying to setup thunderbird and would like to transfer all my profile settings/emails/local emails to the windows 7 thunderbird.
it doesn't seem to be working
does anyone have any tips for me? i have scrolled through the net for an hours or so including this forum and have tried several different options.

there is 2 different locations on windows 7 for the thunderbird profile

but only one on windows xp
c:\documents and settings\*username*Application Data\thunderbird\profile

if i copy the profile folder from xp to both locations on windows 7 it wont work, or just one location on windows 7 same thing

does anyone know of a easy way to do it?

i stupidly had Tbird running on windows 7 but thought i would be smart and try to set it up exactly th esame as XP - and it stopped working - uninstalled it - reinstalled it and now just want to transfer email/profile settings over.

thanks in advance !

I have set up Thunderbird v.60.8.0 on a friends computer to access an Outlook.com account via POP. The Outlook Inbox content downloads to Thunderbird as expected but I cannot download any of the additional outlook mail sub-folder content. I am not a familiar user of Outlook.com and cannot see any way to make these additional folders accessible to Thunderbird or to otherwise export them so that Thunderbird can access them.

I am attempting to transfer my Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail account from my existing Windows 7 to my new computer's Windows 7. Everything is completely unsorted in my online Gmail account, and I really want my folders and settings to be on the new computer.

First I followed the Mozilla directions for transfer, which involved installing Thunderbird on the new computer, then copying and overwriting all the Profiles folder contents from the old to the new computer. The copying worked exactly as described, but when I tried to run Thunderbird, it said that it was missing or incomplete.

I ended up uninstalling/reinstalling Thunderbird on the new computer and trying MozBackup. When I tried to run MozBackup on my old computer, I could get to the point of selecting what I wanted to back up, but when I select Thunderbird I got this error message: "Access violation at address 004C2C9E in module 'MozBackup.exe.' Read of address FFFFFFFF." It does this every time I try again.

Does anyone have advice about how to either 1) fix the MozBackup error or 2) transfer my Thunderbird folders/mail a different way?

OS: Windows 7, Extreme editionR1. Wanting to transfer contents of Local Folders from Mozella Thunderbird, version 3.1.4 to the the Personal Folders within Outlook 2003, (11.5608.5606). Apparently there is no Import feature associated with Thunderbird. I successfully dragged and dropped the files into their respective Personal Folders. The files had a ".msf" file extension. When I tried to open these ".msf" files within the Personal Folder, I received the following message: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program, or if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

I made a backup copy of one of the Local Folder contents, and renamed the extension to the Personal Folder extension ".pst" Hopefully that was the correct extension. I then dragged and dropped that file into the Personal Folder, then tried to open it. Unfortunately I received the same error message.

To make a long story short, I'm stumped. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for listening.

Hi guys,
Please can someone help me. I've been searching the web for about half an hour & still haven't found a nice simple answer.

My friend has asked me to upgrade him from XP to Vista which I know I can do comfortably. All he wants to keep is photos,documents & his emails as he is a salesman. Photos & docs will be no problem but the only barrier for me is transfering his emails from thunderbird to outlook 2007.

Originally I was going to do the transfer by connecting a second hard drive to his computer & copying all the data he wants to keep from one to the other. Now Im having second thoughts as he doesn't have a huge amount of data to transfer. I was going to use DVDs as I probably only need one maybe two.

Does anyone know a good way of transfering his emails(Sent/inbox/drafts e.t.c)from his thuderbird client in XP to his new Outlook 2007 in Vista?The preferable method would be without having to rig up a second hard drive but that doesnt rule it out.Normally when ever I had to install an new OS I just input the new account details in outlook 2007 & it sycronises with my email cients & all my mail reappears. When I explained this to my friend he seemed certain that tiscali(who he is with)only keeps the sent email for a day or so. So he is worried he will lose all his sent emails from over the years.

Please can someone help me I would be very grateful.Thankyou.

System was perfectly stable for such a long time...

A couple of months back, Firefox started crashing whenever I attempted any kind of file download or page save, from any site. For a while I could work around using DownThemAll plugin. Then that crashed too. For a while , I could get downloads by switching to Chrome or IE. Now every browser crashes at every attempted download. The crash occurs when a "where to save" window tries to open: depending on browser, it occurs instantly or after opening a messed-up explorer window.

Thunderbird also crashes if I attempt to save an attached file. However, I can drag attachments to desktop to retrieve them. So maybe it's invoking the "where to save" window that's the problem?

With both browser and mailer, everything is fine on program restart - Windows and other programs seem unaffected.

I have kept Norton 360 fully updated, and accepted all Windows updates. Have run ccCleaner, Glary registry cleanup and Malwarebytes. Some junk found, but problem not resolved. Below are Windows failure reports from the three browsers. Any help would be very much appreciated!

My school has recently switched to Google Apps for its email service, now resulting in students having an address of [email protected]. I also started working for a company that uses this email in the form of [email protected]. I would like to be able to access both of these email accounts using Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.

I've been told that by changing the user name for these accounts to include the full email address will allow access as if the account was a regular Gmail account, but I have not been able to make this work. I continue to get an error message:
Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server pop.googlemail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.
This also happens for the mail server pop.gmail.com.

I tried using the Unlock CAPTCHA feature for both accounts. It worked for the [email protected] email address (it unlocked it, supposedly), but not for the [email protected] account. For the edu account, the unlock CAPTCHA responded saying the username and password do not match.

I also just installed the addon Gmail IMAP Account Setup for Thunderbird, which seems to know just what to do. However, with the employee email, I get the error message, "Login to server imap.gmail.com failed." With the student email, I get the error, "Invalid credentials (Failure)" followed by the same error as the employee email.

Open Thunderbird in safe mode (instructions below)
If doing this solves the problem, the "code" you are getting is as a result of a recent add on update.
Restart Thunderbird in normal mode, deactivate/disable ALL add ons......and then enable them again ONE at a time.
In other words....the process of elimination will show the add on causing this (if in fact that is the case ! )
At the end of this process, all will be well !

A:Thunderbird email

How recently have you compacted your folders? Compacting is something that needs to be done regularly in any email program. We recommend weekly, but many of us do it daily. When done often enough, it can be an extremely fast process. Not doing so can lead to problems like those you are experiencing. See this about how to and why it's so important: Compacting folders - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

If you haven't been doing that before, and 'compacting' them now (and leaving a long enough time for the process to complete) doesn't fully resolve the problem then do the following on each account:

Close Thunderbird. Find and delete all of the files with the .msf file extension in your profile folder/Mail Profile folder - Thunderbird - MozillaZine Knowledge Base including your Local Folders, especially if you are using the global inbox. You must have "View hidden files and folders" on Spyware Warrior :: View topic - How to show hidden files and folders and you need to set "hide extensions for known file types" off (just below View Hidden) if you are using Windows. For VIsta, use the XP instructions. These are your mail summary files and do not hold any messages themselves. They will be rebuilt the next time you open each folder in Thunderbird. Compact all your folders when you have completed this. Compacting folders - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

To avoid this happening again, see the tips in these articles:

A:Thunderbird Email Setup

Step one. Make sure your E-mail account is configured properly according to the instructions provided by the E-mail provider, and that the provider supposts Tb. (If there are no instructions for Tb, then if there are some for Netscape, take a look at those)
Step two. Your provider should have a list of error messages (customer support or help or FAQ) that might provide a clue as to what is causing the problem. Look under your Tb account's properties/account settings/server settings; there is a cartouche for "security settings" that you may have to change to "TLS."
Hope this helps,

I am a new user of both Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird and simply love both of them. However, I have a two issues with Thunderbird I can not seem to resolve.

Since I am trying to set up both my Gmail and AOL email accounts up within Thunderbird, I have tried to add the extension Buttons! (select SMTP) to my Thunderbird software. I open Tools/extensions/Get More Extensions. That seems to put me into Firefox and when I try to install an extension, it goes into the Firefox software. How can I get the extension Buttons! into my Thunderbird software so that I can manage the SMTP servers.

As I mentioned earlier, I am trying to be able to manage both email accounts thru Thunderbird. I have managed to get the Gmail account to work properly but simply cannot get the AOL account to work. I click on the Get Mail button and then on the AOL Mail. It seems as though it is working but nothing seems to happen. The message on the bottom bar states that it is downloading 1 of 10 messages.

We have 2 computers in the house, both have Windows XP with Outlook Express available. Based on some reading here and at other sites, we are going to use Firefox browser for increased security. Should we also use Thunderbird for our email? Or will Outlook be just as secure?

p.s. We have NAV 2005, Zone Alarm, and the major anti-spyware products. (Not that that matters for this question, but just in case.)

A:Change email to Thunderbird?

I can highly recommend thunderbird as an excellent mail client. I have been using and recommending it since it's very early beta releases. Thunderbird includes many security features such as remote image and script blocking by default. It has a reliable and adaptive junk mail filter, useful option for unlimited extensions (provided by the mozilla community) just like Firefox, solid identity management, easy outlook/express migration and many other desirable features.

I am yet to have a problem with thunderbird, and would love to hear any other members impressions of it.

In my opinion you should get it.

I just purchased a computer with Windows 7 on it for a colleague. Her computer needs to be reformatted. It is cooked. I hooked everything up and thought (very operative term) I did the install correctly. I downloaded Thunderbird so she could set up her email accounts. The problem is that some email accounts were accessible while others were not. The accounts that are not allowing us to set up give a message about either not recognizing a password, or not communicating with the server. Would there be a security setting on Windows 7 that is stopping me? If so how do I go there? We set all POP and SMTP as they were on the old computer that used XP and ran Thunderbird. I called the company that runs the mail server and they report no problems. I can access the same email accounts from my XP OS but not with Win7. I am a neophyte, so please be kind. Computer is turned ON. ;)Many thanks,Moloki

A while back I changed over to Thunderbird from Outlook Express. The emails and email addresses went smoothly but now I'm trying to get my grouped email addresses (or distribution lists) over but all that transfers is the name of the group.

Any thoughts?

For at least the fourth time in recent weeks, I've lost my email and have had to begin a new account to begin receiving new emails. Is there any quick, easy way to retrieve the lost emails? Also, with the new email account, I apparently do not have the proper SMTP setting to be able to send mail. Any help would be deeply appreciated. I'm use Firefox as my browser.

i'm using a dell laptop with a wirless connection to a verizon dsl modem, running vista home premium, and using thunderbird to handle my email.

I am currently in the process of putting together a system of using my current list of newsletter subscribers to send out HTML based newsletters. In the mean time, I would like to know if it is possible for me to use Mozilla Thunderbird to send out the newsletter to multiple clients using the BCC option in Thunderbird after I insert the HTML into the body of the email.

Is there an easier way of doing this?
