  • Hi,

    If you don't want to manually copy folders from Thunderbird into the user's exchange mailbox from Outlook and export their address book from Thunderbird, I suggest you evaluate a tool called Address Magic or Aid4Mail which both can automate the process of converting MBOX to a PST and dumping to Outlook. You can download free trial of them.

  • Would be nice for Microsoft Outlook customers who want to migrate from Thunderbird to have a Microsoft tool to aid them, rather than a third party tool.  I would suggest more people would migrate if Microsoft had such a tool?  Personally I can not be asked to spend hours messing about.

  • One thing that worked for me was to use a gmail account and create IMAP folders for my mail.   Then I synched by Thunderbird mail to the IMAP folders.  Then I read it back into Outlook.   Gmail did all the conversion for me.  Don't know if Windows Live Mail will do the same thing, but basically the idea is to use a free online mail site to do the washing.

  • I tried Address Magic but ended up with a Trojan on my computer.  Fortunately Macafee removed it immediately.  Don't know whether Address Magic was totally to blame, though.

  • You can select between manual procedure & external application for migration of thunderbird to outlook i.e. MBOX to PST.

    For Manual Migration, you can check this thread: http://www.broobles.com/imapsize/th2outlook.php, where you can export MBOX folders to EML & then to PST. 

    But considering the scenario of your huge data, it can be a hectic situation for you.

    Alternate Method can be like some third-party application may help you for complete conversion of MBOX to PST without wasting any time. Free downloads are also available, check: http://www.mboxtooutlook.org/how-its-work.html
