Thunderbird /Outlook


OK my conversion to linux is nearly complete. How do I transfer all my saved messages over from Outlook 2003 on WinXP to Thunderbird on SuSE 9.1?

Thanks

I haven't used Thunderbird much, but Mozilla requires the Outlook program to be present to convert .pst files. I migrated from Windows & Outlook 2k by installing Mozilla on the machine, using the import routine and then copying the address book file and mailboxes into the Mozilla profile on my Linux system.
