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.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
