If you are migrating from another email client, such as Outlook or Eudora, the first time you run Thunderbird you should get the Import Wizard (see Figure 10-1).

Figure 10-1. The Thunderbird Import Wizard.

Here is the current list of mail clients that you can migrate from. Remember that it is possible that support for other clients may be added in the future:

  • Netscape Communicator 4.x

  • Netscape 6.x and 7.x

  • Mozilla 1.x

  • Outlook

  • Outlook Express

  • Eudora


At the time of this writing, migrating from Eudora is not supported on the Mac.

Follow these instructions to migrate:


Click the radio button of the mail client you want to import.


The wizard continues and you begin to see information being imported.

FAQ: What if I have an older version of Thunderbird installed on my system?

The best way to proceed in this case is to uninstall the older version and download and install the latest version from www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/.
