Listed Commonly Asked Questions and Answers

How can I use Thunderbird Import Wizard to import MBOX to Thunderbird?

I am planning to buy this Thunderbird Importer software. Can you suggest me how to run this application?


It is quite easy to operate this tool. All you have to do it to follow these steps:

Steps to Import MBOX Files in Mozilla Thunderbird

Thunderbird Import Tool

  • Step 1 : Launch Thunderbird Import Wizard on Windows
  • Step 2 : Choose Add File / Folder to add MBOX to Thunderbird
  • Step 3 : Select All Mails for complete import. Choose Mails >> Apply Filters >> Set to import selective MBOX data based on date-filter
  • Step 4 : Choose desired Thunderbird profile from Select Identities list
  • Step 5 : Thunderbird Import Tool will import MBOX files to Thunderbird

The application showed that the MBOX import has been successful, but I do not see any imported data in my Thunderbird. Why is this happening?

If your Thunderbird program is open during the import process, then you have to close it and start again to view the imported MBOX data.

If you cannot find the transferred MBOX data in Thunderbird, check the Advanced Configuration settings of your Thunderbird account. The Message Store type has to be set as MBOX for this tool to work. If it is set as Maildir, the import will not be successful.

There is no file size limit as users can add any size of MBOX file to this Thunderbird Import Tool.

I have a folder full of MBOX file that I want to add to Thunderbird profile. Can I easily import all the files to Thunderbird Import Wizard?

Using Add Folder option of the software, users can add all MBOX files at a time to this tool.
Yes, MBS file created in Opera Mail is a type of MBOX file. This tool can be used to import MBS file also.
When users choose the IMAP profile as the destination, the tool will show a warning message and ask users to choose Local Folder as their destination. When the data transfer is done, MBOX file data can be easily dragged from Local Folder section to IMAP account.

No, in order to import MBOX to Thunderbird, the Thunderbird email client should be installed in your computer. You can download Thunderbird from the following link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/
