I used Thunderbird for a few days and now I wish to switch to the Outlook. I exported the individual messages that I needed from Thunderbird into eml files. Now, how do I import those into Outlook using the Outlook Import Wizard?
I used the article on how to export emails from Thunderbird to eml files and saved all my Thunderbird e-mails from .mbox to eml files using you free MBOX to EML converter.
