I have just got two machines with Win 7 installed. Found a conflict with AVG and Mozilla Thunderbird. I currently run an XP Pro system and they were my defaults. Was advised to go with Microsoft Live Mail and the anti-virus program in Windows Essential. No problems so far. On trying to export and import my contact list either by .crv or .wab I get my contacts OK but no email addresses. Thunderbird exports in LDIF format. How do I work with that? Anything I am missing, please

On deeper investigation I found that the corresponding bits of data for each field have to be physically linked between the programmes before transferring. It is a bit ponderous but it works. Hope this helps others who may have the same problem

But, even easier, you could have stayed with Thunderbird!

Microsoft security essentials works just fine with Thunderbird, using AVG is akin to using Norton you leave yourself wide open
