Postby markus62 on Fri Jul 10, 2009 3:50 am

Hi I just installed Gloria , my first Linux .All perfect ,it works fine!
Just one question is it possible to import mails from Win thunderbird to my new OS?
I have all my old mails in an old HD formatted and used with Win xp, any way to import in thunderbird/Gloria?

Tks a lot!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Yes, you can transfer your Thunderbird profile (with all emails) from Windows to Linux.

You need to find the profile folder in Windows, I believe it is in
C:\Documents and Settings\$USERNAME\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\* random letters.

You can copy and paste this folder (I would just copy everything inside the "Profiles" folder) to /home/$USER/.thunderbird
