Thunderbird to Outlook Express 1.0
It's not often that we give a thumbs-up to a program that's as buggy as Thunderbird to Outlook Express (TBird2OE), but we like this free app.
- Quite buggy
Insects or no, Thunderbird to Outlook Express 1.0 (in conjunction with Outlook Express Eml Importer, better known as OEImporteml.exe) saved us a heap of work getting our email from Thunderbird to Outlook. Did we just say Outlook? Yup, OE was only a way-stop. Outlook won't import Thunderbird files, however, it will import email from Outlook Express. So if you need to migrate email from Thunderbird to Outlook Express or Outlook, get out your flyswatter and download Tbird2OE.

It's not often that we give a thumbs-up to a program that's as buggy as Thunderbird to Outlook Express (TBird2OE). But we like this free app.
Why? The bugs aren't debilitating and as far as we know, Thunderbird to Outlook Express 1.0 is the only program that will export your Thunderbird email in its entirety to an appropriate folder structure. A program called IMAPSize also exports Thunderbird email, but with that one you must process each .emf folder file individually.
With Tbird2oe all you do (after switching the program to English from its native Czech) is point the program to the Thunderbird email folder (most likely something along the lines of C:\Documents and Settings\User name\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\random name\Mail), select an output location, then press start. The program processes all your Thunderbird email and places the resulting individual .eml files in appropriately named folders, albeit very slowly - it took about two hours for our 27,000 emails.
But you wanted to read about the bugs. When we first tried to browse for the input and output locations, only the Program Files folder was listed: we had to reselect the drive from a drop-down menu to see all the existing folders. Also, the browse feature only worked once per session - we had to restart Thunderbird to Outlook Express 1.0 to change the input or output location whenever we made a mistake.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
