    Help, thunderbird can't import mails, filters or adressbook!

    I finally found the import tool on the hidden(!?) menu in unity.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work at all. (Me wonders why Ubuntu still doesn't have QA)

    When I click the next button, nothing happens. When I choose Mail, no file-types are listed.
    It wouldn't bother me that much, but this isn't my computer and these mails need to be imported.

    Can anyone please help?

    I have exactly the same problem with Thunderbird. I haven't found out why yet but I have discovered the ImportExportTools add-on. That managed to import an mbox file for me.

    Thanks, George! The new add-ins feature did the trick for me, as well. I installed that 'ImportExportTools' add-in, then used the Import Mbox function (with the 3rd option for search all folders, or something like that)
