Importing Thunderbird Mail from Windows to SuSE linux 9.3
I have dual boot with windows xp and Linux SuSE 9.3. I want to switch from windows to linux.
The problem is that my old mails are all in windows. I used Thunderbird in windows to import all the mail folders and address books from Microsoft Outlook. I then copied the Mail folder from "c:\Documents and Settings\.....\Application Data\Thunderbird\profile\u<<something>>\" to my linux profile folder that Thunderbird in linux was using but my mails did not appear.
Is it stupid thing I am doing, is there some other way of getting my mails in Linux, I would be so grateful to the kind sould giving me suggestions.
Please help me join the linux world.
