I want to switch from MS Outlook to Thunderbird, but I want to take my 20 000 + emails with me. Every time I try to import them, Thunderbird freezes, possibly because I have too many subfolders and too many mails (yes, I know). Now MS Outlook has a possibility to export all those mails into a nice .pst file, which you can then download into another copy of MS Outlook – but not into Thunderbird. This bird only accepts imports from other programs, and not from folders or files. Is there any way I can bypass this? Asking this question on the mozilla newsgroup didn’t get me any answers, so I’ve put my hope in the whizzez of MeFi.
