Thunderbird in Mac and Outlook in Windows may be two most used email clients in their respective platforms. However, there’s one thing that Thunderbird users face that has apparently no proper solution. And that is to move the data to Outlook or to migrate from Thunderbird to Outlook without facing severe data loss or integrity errors.
Migrate from Thunderbird to Outlook
Thunderbird (Mac) and Outlook (Windows) are two different email clients, though they serve the same purpose of managing email data –
- They both run in different operating systems (Mac OS X and Windows)
- They both have different data files to store data
- Thunderbird supports generic MBOX file but not Windows Outlook, which uses PST
- There’s no direct in-built feature in either one of them for import/export data
Therefore, over the last few years, many file converters came to the surface. They require you to dig into your Thunderbird profile folder (located inside users’ library folders) and find the files containing the data. Or they require you to install an add-on in Thunderbird, archive data to MBOX files, and then use the converter to convert MBOX to PST.
All of these solutions work to some extent, but if you are the kind of user that cannot waste your precious time dealing with tasks that can otherwise be completed very quickly, those solutions are not for you.
Another approach that many takes is manually move data through an intermediary email account that can sync emails using IMAP. You need to create a dummy email account that provides space equals to more than your Thunderbird database size. Then you need to sync data to that account and then from the account to Outlook in Windows.
Obviously, that would take a lot more time than any other third-party tool. If you think you don’t care that much about time, another bad news for you is that that manual IMAP approach can also result in data integrity loss. Which means that the information associated with emails will either be lost or damaged. So, you don’t get the emails, folders, attachments, text formatting, and so on exactly as originally was with Thunderbird. Lots of things would be fragmented, and for almost all users, that is something that cannot be compromised with.
