Import Apple Mail to Thunderbird, Cutting Down the Required Steps and Tim!

Whenever someone switches their email clients, along comes the daunting task of migrating all the data. If you only use an email account and all the data are on the servers, you can simply add that account to your new client and let it sync from the servers.

But if you have a local database too, you cannot apply the same method to move local files as well. You can sync it back to the servers through your old client. Then back to the new client, but this is not at all productive or efficient. You can spend hours and still see no result in sight, and if you do succeed, the outcome could be riddled with errors and integrity loss.

The better way for moving your contents is to convert the files as they fit the new client.

Here, we are talking about how to import Apple Mail to Thunderbird. Both clients work on Mac OS X and also support MBOX format, but to move the data manually using the default features could prove to be time consuming and very complicated, especially if this is your first time.
