Thanks, now I have to remember how to install on Windows. I suppose
the Windows version of TB will be an exe file? So I just run that to
install it? It is so long since I did anything like that on windows!!
Yeah should be easy enough. Goto www.getthunderbird.com (on your
wife's PC) and it should suggest you download Thunderbird 3.1 (not sure
if it'll suggest British English, it might detect your location and
offer it). Then download the EXE file, double click on it and follow
the wizard choosing the default settings.
When you first run Thunderbird it should give you the option to import
mail from other applications. Since you're using IMAP you might get
away without backing up the Outlook Express files, although it could
also be a good idea to do that just in case.
You can't go wrong with TB3 for OE users, it's a lot better and the
people I've got using it agree and have had a pretty hassle free time.
