  • Thanks for providing solution.

    As I searched solutions I got a manual solution for Thunderbird files into Outlook which I am sharing here follow it if you have the problem to convert Thunderbird files to Outlook.

    As we know that Outlook Express have option to export emails to MS Outlook in same machine so Firstly we have to save all Thunderbird files into .eml files by “save as” option. Then by drag & drop method we can save all file into Outlook Express and then we can easily export emails into Outlook from Outlook Express.

    I used this option because I was using Windows XP but if you are using another Windows OS then you have to use the ( Thunderbird Converter (third party tool). My friend used it because he was using Windows 8.1 OS. Both solutions is exact for converting Thunderbird emails into Outlook. 

    You can also try it for getting trust on me for doing the conversion task.

  •  Sorry for being late with my reply.

    You can convert Thunderbird to Outlook 2013 by using a simple drag and drop method if you have installed both of application.

    1. Select Thunderbird emails, drag all them and drop in a folder on your PC. (You will get an EML file for each message)
    2. Now open MS Outlook, drag all EML files into MS Outlook 2013 folder.

    This method works for me, but still you have difficulties to perform the conversion, then use a widows based Thunderbird to Outlook converter program.

  • There are two different ways by which you can convert MBOX to PST format: first you should try a manual trick to transfer mailbox content from Apple Mail to Windows Outlook. If it fails or doesn't work, then you can try a professional MBOX to PST converter tool. The manual trick doesn't require any paid utility or any cost. You can freely use it for transferring email messages and other mailbox content from MBOX files of Apple Mail to Windows Outlook. Though the manual trick is lengthy, but can give you effective results. 

    As I earlier mentioned that if the manual trick doesn't work, then only you should try a professional solution to convert MBOX to PST format. Such tools are programmed to perform an easy and safe conversion of MBOX files (normal as well as corrupted) into PST format. You should download demo version first for free evaluation.

  • You should definitely mention that all of the mentioned conversion tools are NOT for free and do convert on a limited amount (20-50) from each folder during the TRY IT time.

    Unfortunatelly Outlook 2016 does NOT know how to deal with expoprted EML files. Windows Live has been BANNED by Microsoft sites so the only possibility is to download Windows Live from somewhere else and try to do the conversion throug it as a middle-ware software between TB and "InBlind"
