Hi all:)

I finally convinced my mother to get a Mac and she's loving it, but I can't import her emails to Mail from Thunderbird running on a Windows box.

I followed the instructions on the Mozilla page that said I should copy the files from the ~/Documents and Settings/User Name/Application Data/Thunderbird/Profiles folder, but Mail says it's not a compatible .mbox file. Can anyone help me out with this one?

I'd really appreciate if I could set-up Mail so she can use it, since it's the one with the best integration with the OS.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers
Daniel

No ideas really. Are you sure you are renaming the correct file from the PC side?

I know I had some issues doing this, but never got the error that it wasn't a valid .mbox file.....just where the import didn't really work.
