Cannot import mbox files

Asked by Brant

I am trying to import emails from Thunderbird. I select File, Import, Import Single File. When I browse to the mbox file it is not properly recognized by Evolution and it does not let me select mbox from the drop-down. It also does not have "Automatic" in the drop-down eventhough it says I should. Eveything is greyed out so I can't move forward therefore no import. I have searched the forums and I can't find anyone else with this problem.

Thanks for your help.

I dont think these programs are really able to do this natively, i did however find this script to do this conversion:
Made by Sean Carlos called: " - one time copy of Thunderbird Email to Evolution"
but please be sure to back up all your current mail if you decide to try it.

Can you help with this problem?
