Mozilla Thunderbird is a great email client cross-platform application that provides worldwide service. But after the advent of Microsoft Outlook, users move towards it due to more convenience and advanced features.

In this new era, users are looking for a solution to export Thunderbird SBD to PST file format. Whereas Thunderbird SBD mailbox saves two different types of files: .mbox (in hidden form), and .msf file.

There can be many professional and personal reasons for doing SBD to PST conversion, so it is appropriate to know the solution by explaining them.

What is a Thunderbird SBD Mailbox or Folder?

When a user wants to change Thunderbird SBD to Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013, and other older versions he is actually trying to move the subdirectory of the mailbox.

Because the actual Thunderbird messages are in the mbox extension along with its attachment and the MSF file stores the headers and mail summary and not the entire message.

It can also be understood in this way that sbd creates two sub-folders in the folder hierarchy in which the user saves the data. For example, a folder Thunderbird creates in default location as file-name.sbd then it will automatically add MBOX and MSF file corresponding to that file-name.
