    Greetings,

    I'm having no luck while trying to import mail from Thunderbird 1.5.0.7
    to Thunderbird 1.5.0.10 on a new install. I've tried the import
    functions available in the program, I've deleted the profile and tried
    from there (for some reason the "do not import" function is permanently
    selected with the new profile setup), and I've tried the manual profile
    folder copy and paste method - all with no success. When manually
    pasting the folders into the profile T'bird sees them but will not open
    the individual messages in each folder. It just hangs while displaying,
    "Building Summary file for Inbox." I really don't want to use outlook,
    so any ideas would be forever appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Please forgive the cross-postings - but I'm desperate here.

    A pointer from a gracious reader at netscape.public.mozilla.general led
    to the fact that not copying the .msf files in the original profiles
    folder to the new profiles folder did the trick.
