As much as I can tell, there's no direct way to import your Kmail's

maildir into Thunderbird's mbox store. However, you can do this

A web search will yield many mbox to maildir converters, but I don't see anyone advertising maildir to mbox.* You would think someone would have done it.


As I recall, I used kmail to convert to mbox.* I would create a new mail folder in maildir format and move all the files from the old, mbox, folder to the new one.* The conversion happened automatically.

Perhaps this could work in reverse, too?* Kmail used to understand mbox.* If it still does, and can create a new mbox folder, you could copy the maildir emails to the mbox folder.* If that works, you should be able to have thunderbird use the mbox folder.

Yes.

Read this on how to do it:

A few years ago I moved all my mom's email from Win to Linux just by copying over everything in the thunderbird directory.* It worked well back then.


In Linux, the directory is in your home directory named .thunderbird

The really important stuff (all the email) is in a directory named xxxxxxx.default where 'xxxxxx' is some other random characters.


I hope that helps,

Michael
