How to open an outlook pst local file with Thunderbird


Can anybody help on how to open an outlook emails local file (i.e. a pst file on local disk) using Thunderbird 2.0.0.16 under Kubuntu?
I tried the option tools/import/mail with no success (Outlook did not appear even as an option)
Thanks
Alberto

I would try converting the pst to a mbox format, and then see if you can open it..

readpst is a utility for converting Microsoft Outlook mail files (personal folders) to standard UNIX mbox format. This is a fork of the libpst project at sourceforge.
from the sourceforge site...

From this time on, until a later time, LibPST will not be maintained here. It will be maintained by a new maintainer and will reside at http://alioth.debian.org/projects/libpst/.
