The Details are Critical

When exporting email and contacts, you need it perfect, not "good enough." All of the folders, all of the messages, all of the contacts, and even the distribution lists must be converted as precisely as possible. Address Magic has been used to convert tens of thousands of Thunderbird mailboxes and we've spent the time to get it right.

For example, Address Magic supports folder hierarchies in Gmail. No other conversion software on the market can do this.

Fast. Really Fast.

When importing Thunderbird email to Outlook, Address Magic can convert several gigabytes per hour. This means that the average Thunderbird mailbox will be exported in a few minutes. Our customers have told us that Address Magic can do in minutes what takes our competitors hours.

If you are exporting to Gmail, Address Magic is limited by the speed of your internet connection.

Are Birthdays Converted?

Of course birthdays are converted. Address Magic supports all Thunderbird address book fields, including names, postal addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, web links, custom fields, comments, and many more.

When converting to Outlook, Address Magic even creates birthday reminders in your calendar.

Are Attachments Converted?

I'm glad you asked. Address Magic has fantastic attachment support. Do you have messages with huge attachments? No problem, Address Magic can handle them.

Do you have complicated emails with inline pictures, attached pictures, vCards, and assorted other attachments? Address Magic will convert those correctly too.

Address Magic can even convert email messages forwarded inside other email messages, which even some email applications don't support!

Are Dates Converted?

We've spent a lot of time worrying about converting dates properly. Weeks of time, actually.

Address Magic converts the sent time, the received time, and the mailbox time. Other dates and times in the headers are also preserved and corrected for the timezone. Address Magic preserves the complete email headers and converts them to Outlook or Gmail.

One important note though - Thunderbird and Outlook calculate and display dates differently. You usually cannot compare dates and expect them to match exactly.

Home users may use Address Magic for Thunderbird for up to two people in the same household. Business users require one license for each mailbox to be converted. A mailbox is comprised of the email folders and address books for a single user. Licenses are not transferrable to other users, even if you uninstall the software.

Computer repair shops and technicians must purchase a separate license for each end-user. Quantity discounts are available.
