Although there are plenty of posts that suggest you can import ThunderBird's mail into other email clients (because its mbox format), I have yet to succeed with any other email client. Eudora wont recognize them, Outlook (Express or otherwise) doesn't have a clue, Incredamail gets lost, Mailcommander doesn't recognize the file format, Intelligent Mail Box lacks the where with all to even get to the point of figuring out how to import anything let alone actual mail. If I was a bit better at programming I'd just write a nice little quick converter to convert the ThunderBird mail files to TAB or Comma delimited, or even (sorry) MS Access Jet Data.
