Just downloaded and installed Thunderbird March 2

Migrating from Sept 2005 build of SeaMonkey system 1.7.12

Mail messages were NOT imported.
Custom mail folders were NOT created.
Mail filters were NOT created.

Address Book, POP3 account information WAS copied.

More information regarding non-migration....

Used the Mboximport function as described in the knowlegebase.  This worked
fine for the single level/standard folders (Inbox, Sent, etc.)

This did NOT work for archives with multiple subfloders.

It appears that someone left the subfloder details out of the external specs. 
This is just a guess, but it would explain why both the migration and mboximport failed.

Same problem on the Mac.  I have been using Mozilla for quite a while, wanted to migrate to Thunderbird/Firefox but cannot due to incomplete import.  IN Mozilla I have 3 accounts - All 3 accounts are created but NONE import all the folders I have in Mozilla and 1 of them, my priimary account imports NOTHING at all.
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is
