Migrate contacts from Live Mail to Thunderbird

written by Admin

Posted on 2013-10-08


I hate Windows Live Mail and I want to export all my contacts to Mozilla Thunderbird.


In Windows Live Mail select the Contacts tab and chooses Export - Business Card (VCF). Select the temporary folder where you want to save all contacts in the vCard format.

Search MoreFunctionsForAddressBook in Google and download the plugin.
Start Thunderbird and install the plugin (from file, non searching).

Open the AddressBook and select the Personal AddressBook. Click the Tools menu - MoreFunctionsForAddressBook - Actions for Contacts - import vCard / vcf.

In the dialog box select the temporary folder you created earlier and select all contacts. Import... Done!
