Converting Thunderbird Format Into PST File

You know the path to email freedom can sometimes seem a bit overwhelming especially if you’ve got a bunch of email stored up in TBird – and now you have to convert it all into a PST file. It’s daunting sure but I’ve got good news – you can make it happen! It ain’t as hard as it sounds.

Now there’s a couple of ways that you can go about it. You can directly convert your emails from Thunderbird to a PST format or you can use a tool to make it happen. Both options are easy enough if you’ve got the know-how. Let’s take a closer look at both.

First off if you’ve got a bit of tech-savvy then you can go the direct route. To go this way you’re going to want to export all of your emails from Thunderbird – that’s separate from the message body – and save them to a directory. Then you’ll open up Microsoft Outlook click the File menu select Open & Export click the Import/Export option and select Import from a File. From there you’ll select the emails that you just saved in the directory and convert them into PST file format. And voila! You’re done!

So there you have it! Converting your emails from TBird to PST isn’t so hard after all. Now with the help of either approach outlined above you can enjoy all the benefits of the PST file format and get the most out of your emails.

Preparing Outlook for Imported Files

So you’ve made the decision to export your Thunderbird emails and contacts to Outlook PST files – congrats! You’re in for a wild ride. Before you begin your import process you’ll need to make sure Outlook is good to go for the transfer.

The first thing you’ll want to do is ensure Outlook is up to date. You can do this by pressing the Control + Alt + O buttons simultaneously. This will open Outlook and you’ll want to check for any updates that may be needed. It’s also important to check all email accounts in Outlook to make sure they are properly configured and passwords are updated.

Next check that Outlook has enough storage space to accommodate your incoming Thunderbird files. If you select the ‘File’ tab in Outlook you can access the ‘Clean Up’ option to delete any messages that you don’t need. This will help to free up space for your Thunderbird files.

You can also ensure Outlook can accept the Thunderbird files by going to the ‘File’ tab then selecting ‘Options’ followed by ‘Advanced’. Here you’ll want to ensure the ‘Import/Export’ option is selected and that ‘Import original mail format into Outlook’ is ticked. Once you’ve made any necessary alterations click ‘OK’ and you should be good to go!

Finalizing the Export Process

Now that you’ve managed to migrate your emails from Thunderbird to an Outlook file format the last step is to make sure the export process is finalized to a successful completion. This means you need to check that all your emails and attachments are present plus any folders and labels to ensure that you can access them without a problem.

At this stage you’ll want to open up the resulting Outlook PST file just to check that the data has been successfully transferred. To do this you’ll need to use Outlook – if you don’t have it yet go ahead and download a copy. When you’ve done that follow the instructions below to open up your new PST file in Outlook:

– First go to your folder page in Outlook and select ‘Open & Export’ in the options menu.
– Next select the ‘Open Outlook Data File’ option. You can find this option either under the ‘Account Information’ tab or the ‘Open & Export’ tab (depending on which version of Outlook you have).
– Now you’ll need to select the PST file you’ve just imported to Outlook (hooray!). To do this locate the PST file and click ‘OK’.
– Finally you’ll need to enter your password (if you set one) to unlock the PST file. Once you enter the right password you’ll be able to access your emails and attachments inside the PST file.

Voila! You’ve now successfully exported your emails from Thunderbird to Outlook. All that’s left to do now is take a moment to appreciate the handy work you’ve done and pick out a celebratory e-bevvie of your choice (we’d recommend a hot fudge sundae) – you earned it!
