    You can convert Thunderbird emails data to Outllok with different methods like manually, by IMAP synchronization. 

    Some are asking for an MBOX converter to do the required work easily. It helps you to convert all emails data from Thunderbird to Outlook without losing your data.

    Before buying any third party tool, it is better to ask for a demo for the same tool/ software. Most of them are not satisfying and support is also poor. You can ask for a demo and if satisfied then go for purchase.

    Moreover, emails are kept on the server & you can use any email client to view them remotely.
