קניתי את התוכנה כדי להיות חלק פתרון לבעיה ספציפית מאוד: הייתי צריך להעביר את המיילים מ Thunderbird (בפורמט mbox) על לינוקס ל- Outlook 2007 ב- Windows 7 RC1. הייתי משתמש אתר זמן לאסוף דוא ל POP3 לפני התחלת השימוש Windows 7 – ורצתי לזמן את שניהם ואיסוף דואר (POP3) על לקוחות הן.
This migration requires the following steps as I saw it:
1. Save .mbox files from Linux installation
Thunderbird does not offer any way to export mails so it is required to work with .mbox files
2. Convert .mbox to individual .eml files
Outlook does not offer any method for importing the .mbox format directly so another step in the process is required. I chose the special Thunderbird extention – ImportExportTools (enchanced MboxImport) כדי convert the .mbox to eml קבצים. Note that I assumed that there would be an easy way to then bring these into Outlook 2007 although this was not to be – see next point.
To install the extension, בצע את ההליך הבא:
- If you are using the Windows system you can download the free mbox to eml converter and extract emails from mbox files
- Rright clicking on the link and choosing “Save target as” to להורדה the Thunderbird addon xpi file,
- הפעל את ציפור הרעם, select “Tools” then choose “Addons” (or “Extensions”) and click on “Install”
- לבחור את הקובץ xpi שהורדת ובצע את ההוראות
- מחדש את Thunderbird
- After that you can use following options to save emails from thunderbird to EML files: Tools Menu > ImportExportTools or File menu > שמור הודעות נבחרות
Now e-mails are exported from Thunderbird to EML files and can be imported into Outlook באמצעות אשף הייבוא של Outlook.
3. Convert eml files to msg files OR find a way to migrate eml files directly into Outlook 2007
Windows 7 RC1 does not offer any way of importing eml files into a native mail client (לדוגמה, Windows XP has ל- outlook Express and Windows 7 Beta – Build 7000 – has Windows Mail) and since Outlook 2007 does not allow this, the only way without installing yet another mail client such as Lotus Notes, is to find another product.
אשף הייבוא של outlook works well as I can point it at a folder of eml files and import them into Outlook. It then brings them into Outlook in a subfolder of the destination folder specified.
אם, at this point, you simply drag and drop from the subfolder into the parent folder then duplicate items may then occur. It would be good therefore if you had the option of converting the eml files to a PST file (OR point 3. below) which would then allow an import operation in Outlook – when you import a PST into Outlook you have the option of how to deal with duplicate items – such as ignore, copy regardless…
As it was I had to write some VBA script to remove the duplicate items from a number of folder.
אשף הייבוא של outlook – the best way to import eml files into outlook. Outlook doesn’t תמיכה dragging and dropping of .eml files but you could use Outlook Import Wizard utility to import them into Outlook.
I understand that this is a very specific operation and the reason I needed a 3rd party application was that Thunderbird does not offer a real “export” feature and Outlook does not offer the ability to import eml files. That being said, in summary, the features below would be great in the אשף הייבוא של outlook – note that that the each point assumes that the preceding point is not achievable. לדוגמה, if point 1 was possible then 2 and 3 would not be required in my scenario.
1. Import mbox into Outlook
2. Convert mbox to msg (eml)
3. Intelligence to remove/avoid duplicates in Outlook during an import operation (regardless of the format)
Having said the above, the product works well for what I wanted it. . תודה.
