    Attempting to move to Apple Mail from Thunderbird. New TBird 38.1 is horrible on 10.10.4. We can't find the address book files for TB to convert. We attempted to do via crv but it only picks up header listing, no content. We were able to move the email/local folders.
    If anyone has the method to covert and name of the TB header file, that's what I need.

    If I am in the wrong forum, I'm sorry and yes I used search. Thanks

    See if this will work:

    Click on the Address Book button in Thunderbird, and select an address book. Export it using Tools -> Export as a .LDIF file. Open Contacts app, click on File ->Import -> Text File, chose LDIF, and then select the .LDIF file. Rearrange the fields as desired and then press OK.
