Import mailboxes from Thunderbird into Mail.app
Authored by: taganov on Dec 14, '06 08:53:05PM

I tried this, importing from Thunderbird 1.5.0.8 under 10.4.8 to Mail 2.1. I compacted in Thunderbird first. Then I experimented with a few mailboxes. Without exception, the import lost about 2-5% of the messages. The messages simply don't show up in the imported boxes.

On a separate Mac I imported ~20,000 messages. So how many did I lose? Too many to just live with it!

This just doesn't make sense. It should be easy!

OK I tried Eudora Mailbox Cleaner

Man, what a fine piece of free software! It worked perfectly. It even properly imported mail that I couldn't move through an IMAP server.

Nice.
