That's a tough one. Apparently it did not occur to the developers of SeaMonkey that anyone might want to import e-mail, even from older versions of their own product. They did make it easy to export/import address books though. Go figure. Confused

I think there is a thread somewhere in the forum describing how to do what you want. If you do it before there are any e-mails saved in SeaMonkey it should be very simple: using Rox, find the old Thunderbird files and drag them into their counterparts in SeaMonkey.

I used SeaMonkey's e-mail client for a while before I decided to try to consolidate it with my Thunderbird e-mails, so I had to do it with more difficulty. I found the files in Thunderbird, opened them (in Beaver) and copied them, then pasted them in their proper place in the corresponding files in SeaMonkey. Fortunately I hadn't been using Thunderbird very long (I'm testing Puppy2 alpha on a multisession DVD) so there weren't very many emails in the files.

I haven't tried this, but Snapfiles gave this Windows-based program a very good rating. The website at http://www.joshie.com/projects/dawn/ states that:

Quote:

Dawn Version 5.3 recognizes a plethora of information stored in many address books, from nickname to pager number. Aside from converting, you can display addresses onscreen and edit any or all information in each record and each operation is described in detail in the online help included with the package.

Dawn works with the following programs:

* Becky! -- Known to work with versions 2.00.08, 2.21.03

Of course a Windows-based program is completely useless to Puppy. Instead, see (from MozillaZine:)
