If I go this route, is there a way to migrate all of my Thunderbird 
files to this combo? Due to the nature of the magazine I run, I need all 
of my previous emails accessible for many searches -- i have 3.5gigs of 
emails that I work with.

I could cope with the filtering, but would love it if I could retain all 
of my previously sent/received data.
