Tool to migrate email messages and folders from MacOS's Mail application to Thunderbird

Here's a little tool to migrate your mailboxes ( including folder hierachy ) from MacOS X to mozilla's Thunderbird ( tested with Thunderbird 0.8 and 0.9 ).

This a quick hack and i strongly suggest that you backup you mail folder before using it !

Once you're ready, it's pretty straight forward to use it.
Just run srcpath dstpath

  • srcpath path to the Mail folder (ex: ~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes )
  • dstpath dstpath: path to the Thunderbird Local Mail directory ( ex: ~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/anpkbjqy.default/Mail/Local\ Folders/

If you have any problems or any improvements, do not hesitate to email me !

Now that you're prepared :) you can download it
