Import Evolution email into Thunderbird

Anyone successfully imported Evolution mail into Thunderbird? I can't seem to figure it out and googling revealed no useful links ( at least none till I lost interest smile  )

Thanks

Re: Import Evolution email into Thunderbird

You have to manually import the mail files directly. Evolution and Thunderbird use mbox formats, you just have to manually import each mbox from Evolution into Thunderbird. Its not impossible, just time consuming.

On a totally different topic, Is it possible to import kmail files into thunderbird?

I have no clue. I'm a pure GTK/GNOME user. The last time I used Kmail was when I was just starting out in Mandrake (with KDE 1.x  :shock: )

AFAIR, the use program is not the issue the format it is. I once used MH files from sylpheed via Evolution. A complex symlinksystem made it possible.

kmail user maildir as default. So just look for maildir to mbox converters usually available as command line tools. AFAIR the was aproject on sourceforge. But also look if kmail just includes an exporter for mbox. Just make sure you backup things before.
