Importing from outlook

Post by Yozzer » Thu Sep 22, 2016 7:23 pm

I note there have been problems for some importing from the EM client, but I have been using M/S outlook previously, and have just started using office 2016 today.
I did try to EXPORT my address book from outlook to a folder which worked OK, but various attempts to get this IMPORTED into Thunderbird failed, Thunderbird simply not seeing the CSV file. I have not tried anything else at this stage as the contacts is the most important.

Is this a lost cause and I need to stay with outlook? seems odd, as importing email structures and contact addresses seems a pretty basic requirement for an email program :roll:

The rest of office 2016 is working great, just be nice to get Thunderbird up to speed, though it is sending and receiving emails OK. :D
