Just wanted to share my experience with Thunderbird mail client and my work PC and my MBPro.

I use Thunderbird at work on my PC... Outlook sux... and I have been very happy with it.

I am currently O/S for a few weeks, and travel with my MBPro... so I installed Thunderbird on it and moved my mail from PC to Mac, simply by moving my profile directory.

The process was quick, simple and unreal!

I was expecting a painful process to get my mail over, and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was.

Lets see when happens though when I get back home to Aus and try to move my mail back to myPC again!
