    Can someone please help. I am trying to convert my pst files to work on a mac os x version 10.5.8. using thunderbird. I used thunderbird on windows vista to import my pst files to thunderbird. Then I saved the mail directory and transfered to my mac. I dont know what to do now. I heard you must rename some file to mbox. Please Help........

    Thanks I took your advice and converted everything with o2m and transferred it to my Mac. Now I am trying to figure out how to import the mbox files into thunderbird. Is this the best email client to use as well? I imported into my imail but I do not like the set up. Thanks

    Thanks Sidewinder. That post lead me to the best way to fix this issue. The problem was that thunderbird did not originally have the import mbox file option. You could only import from other email clients. This import option can be downloaded and installed here http://www.nic-nac-project.de/~kaosmos/mboximport-en.html directly to thunderbird. I hope this helps anyone else with this problem. :D

    But you said that you already imported the pst files into Thunderbird on the PC. So all you had to was migrate from PC Thunderbird to Mac Thunderbird. That requires no special files or anything else....
