To convert your messages for use on a new computer, follow the procedure below. This procedure preserves attachments.

Connected Software cannot provide technical support on the process below. However, we will provide a refund if it doesn't work for you.

IMPORTANT: Do not use this procedure for IMAP accounts! Just recreate the IMAP account on your new computer and all of your messages will appear.

  1. Go to the old computer and install Address Magic Personal PLUS.
  2. If your old computer does not have Internet access, you'll need to go to this web page to activate the product:
  3. For your Source format, select your old email application.
  4. For the Destination format, select Thunderbird. You do not need to have Thunderbird installed.
  5. After you click Thunderbird, click the File button and choose a directory to write the intermediate copy of the email.
  6. Allow the conversion to complete.
  7. Copy the directory from Step 5 to the new computer using a CD, USB thumb drive, or similar.
  8. On the new computer, select Thunderbird as the Source.
  9. Click the folder button and choose the directory from Step 7.
  10. Choose your destination email application.
  11. Click Finish.
