Email question for any Vista Beta users

Can I ask a favour?

Is there an mail import facility on Outlook Express for email from Thunderbird (which uses the mbox structure)?

Many thanks

I take it you have a MS Passport or login for MS.

Thanks for the posting and the links. These seem to cover conversion from different address book/contact folders. This is not a problem as I use the ldif format - that works on all the main systems.

On Outlook Express (6) on Windows XP - if I click on the settings to import mail it just shows very old netscape mail options and some ms stuff. There is nothing for Thunderbird (which uses the mbox structure for email). Are the mail import options on Vista more modern and do they include the mbox option?

Just in case anyone does a search - the answer is no.

The way round is to use a free programme IMAPsize which can convert emails from a mbox folder into emls which can be imported by outlook express or outlook
