Subject description: Migrating from MS Outlook
 

Hi,

I'm a newbie in Puppy world and I'd like to start using Puppy more.
My main box is Windows 10.
And I'd like to slowly migrate to Puppy wherever possible.

I'm looking for recommendation for email client.
Preferably, something that would read Outlook pst file (currently using Outlook 2013).

Out of many puppies I experimented with this last few weeks, I have XenPup75 and Fatdog64_721 installed on this laptop that I will use to begin the 'migration'.
An old Dell Latitude D630, Intel Core2Duo@2.20GHz, 2GB RAM, 60GB SSD.

At the moment, I am working thru issues as I encountered them. So, please excuse me, you may see me posting questions/assistance more. Embarassed
Of course, I will do search/research/reading and attempt to resolve it myself first, before seeking help.

To those that have helped me in my other posts - Thank You!

Thank you.

I upgraded from Windows for email to Puppy for email a few years ago. I use Thunderbird in Puppy, which is great. There is also thunderbird for windows. I found the best solution was to install Thunderbird in windows, copy over the emails from Outlook, and then copy the Thunderbird config directories from Windows to Puppy and everything just worked from there.

@ dcung:-

I take it you're using POP3, yes? Keeping all your emails on your local machine?

I'll second Don's recommendation for T-Bird (Mozilla's greatest invention ever.....even better than FireFox!), but I would seriously recommend looking into switching over to IMAP instead. It makes it so much easier to access your e-mails from literally anywhere.

I have 3 e-mail a/cs; my 'main' one (a GMail account I've had for around 15 years), and a couple of what I term 'general disposables'. I find that by bookmarking each e-mail provider in Chrome, I can access those e-mails literally anywhere.....by the simple expedient of signing-in to my Google a/c in any Chromium-based browser.

So much easier than having to laboriously copy .config files across.

This is exactly how I migrated my email from Windows to Linux.
