    Thunderbird data can’t open into MS Outlook directly. There is a difference between storage systems of email clients. Thunderbird stores all items in MBOX file while Outlook posses PST file for data storage. So, there is obligation to convert MBOX file into PST format. You can check conversion process at Thunderbird forum, mentioned below:

    I have a number of free e-mail accounts that I access via IMAP. That lets me use either Thunderbird or Outlook to read the same e-mail items. No need to do any conversion at all. (I prefer Thunderbird almost exclusively, using Outlook only in the rare cases that a customer provides it.)

    You can't directly access as mentioned so with the help of a MBOX to PST Conversion application, you can easily transfer Thunderbird data to Outlook.

    Set up Mozilla Thunderbird to access the e-mails and folders in your Outlook e-mail account
