The Spicebird was a free open source email client based on Mozilla code. It delivered e-mail, calendaring and instant messaging features to the users. Spicebird can be used for personal as well as office use to access email, calendar information and chat accounts.
Earlier, support for the Spicebird application has been discontinued. Due to this most of the users are now migrating to MS Outlook for better experience.
The Spicebird uses .msf (mail summery file) for storing summery of all messages and .mbox (without any extension) for storing complete emails. Both of the files can be found in given below location.
To migrate Spicebird mail to outlook: You can easily export an Spicebird Mail mailbox with the option 'Export Mailbox' and then save it as MBOX file.
Note: To export Spicebird to Outlook mails, you can use without extension MBOX files such as: Inbox, Sent Mail and Trash etc.
This is the first question arises in everyone's mind that why to export spicebird to Outlook. Actually support of Spicebird has been stopped due to this user need to transfer email account data from Spicebird to MS Outlook or any other reliable desktop email client. MS Outlook is a widely used email program and well known for transferring data from MBOX file to Outlook. So this may be the strongest reason for migrating from Spicebird to Outlook.
