(< Back) [Finish] (Cancel) ----- No matter which option above I choose, no mail from Outlook is imported successfully, although some empty folders (an Inbox and one folder named "Personal") *temporarily* appear to exist, but disappear the next time I restart Mozilla. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mail & Newsgroups window. 2. Choose Tools->Import, then select "Mail", and then "Outlook" 3. Wait Actual Results: The "Converting mailboxes from Outlook" window appears with the progress bar stuck at approx 10% for about 10 minutes, then I get the error above, and no messages are successfully imported from Outlook. Expected Results: All messages should be successfully imported from Outlook. My outlook.pst file is 266 MB (279,887,872 bytes). Outlook itself works fine (i.e., the file is okay).
My local Outlook 2000 *.pst file is about 650 MB, I also have another one that is only 32 MB. I don't get to the point that I see a progress bar when I try to import with Outlook (not express). Mozilla 1.6 just freezes, just like netscape 7.1 does. I would have expected to at least be able to tell which .pst to import. Kind regards, Dennis Bijwaard
If acount is on exchange server and online folder(perchance public and size is more than giga bite), Mozilla mail also imports these foldes. In this case size and time for import is more than just outlook.pst's.
I second that. I experienced precisely the same problem with my Outlook .pst file import (~700 MB). Now I can't use Thunderbird, even as much as I would like to. Please fix this soon!
