    Hey everyone,

    I'm fairly new to mac and i'm seeking some help.

    First off, I installed a newer version of Entourage b/c the current 10.2.X version didn't support exchange.

    I just installed the new app under applications and all is working. I still have the older version, will I do any harm by leaving it there or can I just uninstall it (w.o removing word, excel) etc.

    My main question now is the migration.

    I need to copy over the mail, contacts, calendar, etc from thunderbird to entourage.

    Thunderbird doesen't have a feature to "export"

    I read on the modzilla site that I can just import everything from the current profile to the new mail client (entourage)

    http://www.mozilla.org/support/thunderbird/faq#export

    It states that I must import the standard plain text file which is in a "mbox" format.

    So I clicked on import, plain text (mbox) and searched threw my profile and I found the mbox files that I need to import. The problem is, when I select the file/folder, the "import" button is greyed out. It doesen't allow me to import any files at all with the mbox format. I have no idea what to do at this point...

    Anyone have any suggestions..?

    Thanks

    Same problem

    I am having the same problem and can't seem to get the Entourage 2008 importer to recognize the .mbox files. :confused:
