Mozilla Thunderbird to Microsoft Outlook

Mozilla Thunderbird uses two folders to store the mails; Profile folder and the mail folder. The mail folder is stored as two separate files; file with no extension and with an .msf extension. File with the msf extension is intended to be the mail file. You have to convert the .msf files in to .eml files. The .eml files can then transmitted to Microsoft Outlook.
