Preferred Solution: How to export mail and contact from Thunderbird 3.0?

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.)

I have a user who has been mandated to switch to our corporate Exchange server and Microsoft Oulook. I was able to convert the address book over with no problems, but I'm struggling with the mail. Is there a way to export messages from Thunderbird (1.0.5) to Outlook 2000? If not, we're going to have him upgraded to Outlook 2003 in the next week or so (hopefully), and I'm hoping it will make the transition that much easier.

From what I've read, Thunderbird doesn't have a true "export" function, that it leaves it up to the importing application. However, I have found no way to tell Outlook where to look for the mail files (which in Thunderbird have "no extension").

Any help? Thanks in advance.

I can't find it.. where is the export function for your Contact List to a disk ? Thanks

A:export contact list to a disk

You export from Windows Light Mail (WLM), and contacts are included, use Windows Easy Tranfer. If you do not already have Win 7, you can download WET from Microsoft. I did it when I installed W7, it works great.

You can also use the export function in WLM and contacts are included with the mail.

If this is not exactly what you want. Go to contacts, highlight and then right click and send to.

I am President of a computer user group for seniors. Our community is going to Fiber Optic Internet by the end of this month. I need to help the AOL, Earthlink, MSN users figure out how to Export thier email contacts down to Outlook or Outlook Express.

========================================

Backup your OE mail and news accounts.

Click Tools| Accounts, select the account to backup, and then click the Export button. This will store the account's settings in a *.iaf file at the location you specify. You can later import any *.iaf file by clicking the Import button. Your account password is stored in encrypted form in the *.iaf file. Be sure to export all mail and news accounts, and any user-created LDAP accounts you might have created. The default LDAP accounts will always be created fresh when you install or upgrade OE.

2. Backup your address book.

Open the Address Book and click Help| About Address Book to see the full path to the current *.wab file used by all your Identities. Find that file in Windows Explorer and copy it to your backup media. You can later import the backup by opening OE and clicking File| Import| Address Book.

I recommend that you create an emergency backup of the Address Book as well. Open the Address Book by double-clicking the *.wab file. Click File| Export| Other Address Book, and then click on Text File (Comma Separated Values). Cl... Read more

Our sales department currently has to manage two contact lists, one in Excel and one in Outlook. When dealing with thousands of customers, you can see how this can get very time consuming so I'm trying to figure out a way to automate this process somewhat.

The difficulty of this arises because they have unique requirements for column headers so importing is time consuming, and matching data is very time consuming.

My question is, is there a way to export from Outlook to Excel and automatically create the columns (and unique column names), and when needed, import into Outlook automatically putting the data in the right fields.

We use Outlook 2003 in a Exchange server 2003 environment.

If anyone has any other idea's let me know.

A:Export from Thunderbird to Outlook 2003

I recommend you stick with TBird. Moving the Address Book is as easy as exporting and importing. The Email is the problem. If you still had XP you could export to Outlook Express, then to Outlook. For Windows 7 Pro, you could install OE in XP mode. For 7 home you'd have to install Virtual PC to do it. There are 3rd party apps. that say they can do it directly to Outlook without using OE, so maybe someone else has experienced one that works. Before trying anything, make sure you've backed up your TBird Contacts and EMail.

I didn't realise at the time that BCM did not sync with devices such as the new Blackberry Bold 9700 I received today!! The problem I now have is that I don't seem to be able to copy the BCM contacts back into my Outlook list?

Don I might be way off track here mate but was the Outlook account the same email address as you have set up in WLM?

Just a thought you might try adding an account to WLM using the old address and password. I did this with my old account from my service provider then went to a Hotmail account.
Now admittedly it was still within WLM but worth a try.

What I will do is try and add my work account (Outlook) to my WLM and see if it works.

Windows Live Mail is Hotmail, with a new look. So I am confused as to what you are trying to do.
It sounds like you created a whole new name for Windows Live Mail... you didn't need to do that.

If you just open Windows Live Mail and logon as the HotMail name you will see all of the contacts.

Click to expand...

This thread was previously closed due to lack of answers, however I found a solution.

When importing a csv file into Hotmail, the email address field is expected as "E-mail Address" however in the csv file created by Windows Live Mail the email address field is "Email Address".

Note the missing hyphen. This means that the email address is not transferred over to Hotmail.

The solution is to edit the csv file using Notepad - simply add the hyphen to the top line of the csv file, save the file and import it into Hotmail.

If you have the same problem with other fields, a useful test to see what field names Hotmail expects is to export a contact from Hotmail and then inspect the csv file which is created using Notepad.

BUT, there's lots of errors - folders misnamed, sometimes one folder becomes two, with one having a (1) after its name, sometimes a sub-folder has disappeared, sometimes emails appear in a folder when they belong in a vanished sub-folder, sometimes sub-folders just disappear - not in the exported folder at all.
