I am trying to migrate user from Outlook 2003 to Mozilla Thunderbird w/ Lighting extension.
User kept important data stored as Tasks. While I can easily export Tasks from Outlook 2003 to it's default CSV format, I found so far no way to import the CSV into Lightning.
So far I have found no out-of-the-box solution.
In fact, the only solution I can actually think of would be to manually prepare and inject CSV data into the SQLite database storing Lighting data (
That solution needs quite a lot of work, though. The single task data is stored among several tables, I'd have to manually match columns, find some solution to recalculate date values etc.
- Tried to export data from Outlook to
.icsusing Outport as @Randolph West suggested. When ordered to import that file, Lightning did nothing.
- Attempted to build an
.icsmyself, basing on a template task exported from Lightning (so that I could be sure the format itself is not an issue). Same result as with attempt #1.
I am looking for some out-of-the-box solution, or at least a near one. A solution that could be comfortably used by some less-than-skilled users.
