User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.2; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; MS-RTC LM 8; .NET CLR 3.0.30729)
Build Identifier: Eudora-8.0b9.en-US.win32

The import wizard does not give a choice of where to save imported mailboxes from eudora-7.

On my machine, the mailboxes got saved in:

C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\emqdqwzo.default\Mail\Local Folders

I would have preferred the option to save the mailboxes elsewhere - I also need the option to choose where to import the mailboxes from, since I have several mail accouns in different locations

Reproducible: Always




1. It should have given me the option to specify where to import the eudora-7 mailboxes from.
2. It should have given me the option to specify where to save the imported eudora-7 mailboxes to.

As an alternative maybe an option to be able to "move" the mailboxes to another directory/drive after import, maybe using the registry settings?  I have a 30 gigabyte C drive which is almost entirely filled as Windows 7 continues to want to put everything on the C drive, so this would help free up some space on that drive after the importing and configuration has been done.
