To import into TB from another client, you might want to check out this tutorial:

FAQ: Thunderbird - Migration


FWIW, the rumors of TB's demise have been around since 2006, if not longer. While Mozilla now is very different from Mozilla then (read: leadership (or lack thereof), $$$, etc.), I predict (read: hope) that either someone will pick it up to support it, or that it will find another way to live. I suspect that most long-time, loyal users would be happy to chip in a few $$ to keep it going. JMHO.

Cheers,

This is true. I loathe paying for software, but Tbird would be a happy exception.

Mozilla is not giving up on Thunderbird (yet), they just want somebody to take over the project.
