Converting your email from Thunderbird to Outlook? Unless you’ve found a converter you can trust, you’re faced with a challenge.
If you’ve tried converting your emails before, you already know how painful it can be. Thunderbird’s mbox files don’t convert easily to Outlook. When you try workarounds and free downloads, you get:
- Messed-up folder structures
- Incorrect message dates
- Lost data
- Missing email addresses, status flags and time stamps (due to lost SMTP headers)
- Broken embedded images
- And, in many cases, painstaking hours of manual folder reordering
And here’s the worst of it: You know if you make the wrong decision, you could end up wasting hours of your precious time and still lose valuable email data.
How to Export the Simple Way
With Aid4Mail you only have to go through three simple steps to get your conversion done. And you’ll love the results:
- No data is lost in conversion.
- It automatically restores your mailbox folder tree in Outlook without any manual intervention.
- It correctly transfers the status information of your emails (like unread, replied, forwarded, and flagged) to Outlook.
- You can export directly to Microsoft Outlook, Office 365 or Exchange.
Still Want to Convert the Free Way?
This method is a lot more complicated and time consuming. But it’s by far the best free solution on the Internet. It requires four programs: our free MBOX Converter, Windows Explorer, Windows Live Mail (WLM) and Office Outlook.
The Aid4Mail Console Launcher is a new utility to assist with large-scale email migrations.
Working alongside the Console (CLI) version of Aid4Mail, the Console Launcher manages, schedules and monitors your large-scale migration.
Included with all purchases of Aid4Mail Migrator, the Console Launcher offers the following benefits:
Process multiple accounts simultaneously from one CSV file
Simply fill out the CSV template provided with your migration settings and user details, then open and run it in the Console Launcher.
You can even perform migrations with multiple source and target locations, all in one session.
Easily schedule your migrations
Choose to schedule your email migration over the weekend, or in the evenings, to reduce down-time and increase productivity.
Get Email Progress Notifications
Opt-in to receive email notifications about the progress of your migration. You’ll be notified if an account fails to migrate, and when all your accounts have been successfully migrated.

“Most of the conversions took less than half an hour. This meant the users were more willing to do the export and move to the new system as it didn’t mean too much time for them without their computer.”

“Aid4Mail is a spectacular product. I don't think people realize how hard it is to reliably convert email from one format to another, and then do it at scale the way you do. It really is quite an accomplishment.”
