Topic: Migration from Mozilla Thunderbird

We have 10 computers in our office with Mozilla Thunderbird installed as email client. Messages are delivered via POP/SMTP server of our hosting provider. I am going to install iRedMail system on the Ubuntu Server in our office. Clients will be using email via web interface. Mozilla will be removed from clients.

We need some gigabytes of email folders from Thunderbird to be migrated to iRedMail so that all old messages would be moved to web interface.

how do I do that?  is there any manual?
thanks in advance?

Seems Thunderbird stores local email in one single file, that means it's a mbox. You should convert them to maildir format first, then simply copy them to users' mailbox on iRedMail server.
