Migrating from Evolution to Thunderbird

After Upgrading to 11.10 Evolution convert at first start the my Mails into the Maildir format.

Now I want to change my Mail Program to Thunderbird. Is there any Migration Guide (maybe a official one; since this Migration many User are doing, since the default changed) or similar for this. I found only Instruction for the old mbox format.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Why not install IMAP locally and put the mails there. After that you should be able to connect thunderbird and sync it with the IMAP.
