    Transfer Thunderbird Email to Mac Mail?
    I have just bought a new Mac, and even though I can get Thunderbird for the Mac, I would like to just transfer my existing email boxes from Thunderbird to Mac's native Mail program. Is there a simple way to do this? Thanks!

    Thunderbird uses the mbox format to store messages, and Mail can import mbox files.

    Find your Thunderbird mbox files and then use the File > Import Mailboxes command in Mail to import them. (The "Other" option will work, and I'll bet the "Netscape/Mozilla" option will, too.)
