I see this in my future lol
"I can't recall all the sordid details of my move to T bird, but I do recall that the mail import functions were still problematic. I could not import my address book and had to manually recreate it. I was able to import messages, but ended up with a cuckoo folder structure which I later got ironed out."
Actually I'm halfway there, need to crack that .dbx thing and then..........go from there. cuckoo folder structure her I come...........
thanks again your insight has been noted and truely appreciated.
