Anyone know of an application that can export my Thunderbird mail to Gmail? I've checked out Gmail Loader, but it errors out on 2/3s of my e-mail saying it's malformed. Considering I have around 20k mail, that is a lot of content I don't want to lose.

Much thanks.

Is the best option you have. It won't modify headers, and won't re-inject all that mail back into googles mail servers through their SMTP thereby having it being chanced that the mail becomes spam.

Also, don't trust any free gmail conversion tools out there. There was one not too long ago that had a "feature" that emailed your account username and password to the authors gmail account. Great :/

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
