[Evolution] I tried to import emails into EVO. But, it didn't quite work out as planned.


I am needing to know if there's a way to import email from Thunderbird
to Evolution?

I am using Kubuntu 18.04 64 bit.

My email accounts are pop 3

This is the method I tried to import my emails:

I googled how to import emails from Thunderbird to Evolution and this is
what it told me to do:

* Open the importer from within evolution

* Point the importer to your Thunderbird storage location. Which would
be /home/chris/.thunderbird/v9zhxwig.default/Mail/

Select the file without any extention ( like archives) not archives.sbd
or archives.msf

* Hit Okay

* The box below the file selector should now say .MBX FORMAT

* Hit Next

( repeat over and over for each folder)

Okay I did all of that and some folders imported fine but my bigger
folder's, nothing happened.  Like my archive folders which are sorted by
years. And they are quite large 6 thousand emails in one folder. 3,000
in 2018's folder so far.

Am I doing something wrong? If I am then how what is the correct way to
import emails?

Will importing emails cause the date's and time on my emails get screwed
up. Like they'll all say 1/1/1969 etc?



Thank you and take care,
