Outlook/Evolution : import/export

Posted: 11-24-2005, 02:59 PM

I haver followed googled up instructions on how to move outlook email to
evolution.

Evolution however doesnt allow me to select file type (mbox) following
my import of outlook mail into windows thunderbird.

So, in short, does anyone here or has anyone here recently migrated
their outlook data into Ubuntu in a secure, relatively easy way?

(I did the contacts ok)

If you have all your email in Thunderbird, just copy all the Thunderbird
files un the "Mail" directory directly into the Evolution "Mail"
directory. It's as simple as that. (You'll have to enable "view hidden
files" in Nautilus to do this.....)

The best way I've found to enable hidden files is to use Ctrl+h in
nautilus. Toggles hidden on and off beautifully.
