  1. I see the mail import of MS outlook has been deactivated due to bug 1175055.
    When is the correction for this due to come out?
    Thank you and have a great day!

    • Not sure at this point. Best advice at this point would be to go back to Thunderbird 31.x and do the import and then update to the current Thunderbird 38 release. Since there will be no need to import mail once it has already been imported.
