Topic title says it all. 

I haven't moved everything from XP yet, and LInux hasn't been installed yet. but I dream of a day when there is no more Microsoft anything on my computer. 

 

All thoughts are appreciate!

 

Thanks!

brigg, what you'll have to do, is first setup Mozilla Thunderbird on the XP OS & export your mail, contact lists, and whatever else to that app. Thunderbird is the standard Mail client on many Linux OS's. 

 

Then when you set your Linux install up, you'll have a Thunderbird profile to import.

Hope that this will at least get you started.  :)

 

And  :welcome: to the Linux Family! One more Strong.  :thumbup2:

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.

Thanks! So glad to hear everything is readable in Linux. 

And the link will be helpful as well. 

 

I have another post open about how to select the best dispo (sp) of Linux for me. if you have any links or advice, would much appreciate hearing from you (and not to muddle this thread)
