    What are Thunderbird's export options?

    If it can export as CardDav, then you can import your contacts directly to the Contacts app on the iPad. Just mail the file to yourself then tap/hold on it for an option to open it in Contacts.

    I'm not sure about email. What email provider are you using. Most can be added directly to the iPad. If they are IMAP or Exchange services then all your server side folders and emails will be available on the if it's a POP account then you'll probably have to find a third party app that can read whatever archive format Tunderbird uses.

    If you don't mind going to Gmail, then it also has the ability to import/export emails, sometimes directly from the account. Gmail works well on the iPad's Mail app, as well as several third party apps if you want a different mix of features.

    Good luck.

    Here is another way to transfer contacts - at a cost of £0.69 for the app - but it is guaranteed to work - I used it myself some time ago


    On PC goto http://www.abamberger.com/Download/TBird.exe


    Save the file and install it


    On the PC open the folder that tbird.exe was installed to and read the help file in English.


    From app store download TBIRD app the link is https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&r...pYHYBg&usg=AFQjCNHHYJTEpxFoDZmG6CItrLvMjxyVSw


    Run the app and read the help file - accessed by tapping the question mark at the bottom of the screen.


    Between them the two help files will give you all the info needed to do the job. Sent from my iPad 2 using iPF
