The University of Helsinki is discontinuing all mail handling by Mozilla Firefox. I will then lose all saved mail in mail folders unless I can transfer it to Outlook 365. The University has instructions how to do it with Microsoft office. However, I have LibreOffice 5.1, not Microsoft office. I don't want the trouble to move my saved mail one-by-one, I want to move it folder-by-folder, or all in one go.

Can you provide a link to the Uni instructions?

Yes, here are the instructions: . I was directed to the page "Copying messages from Mappi e-mail to Office 365 e-mail" which leads me to "1. Linking Mappi e-mail to Outlook." Below that headline is a form showing the word FILE which is not clickable. The page tells me to open Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office 2013 > Outlook 2013, but I lack Microsoft office

If I understand well, you have to transfer your email web interface towards Outlook 365, nevertheless e-mails can be accessible with navigator. Out of doubt you can use Thunderbird, did you try it ?

The instructions assume that you will use the Outlook email component of MS Office - LibreOffice does not have an email component so you cannot use LibreOffice.

You speak of mail handling by Firefox; Firefox is not a mail client. Presumably you have been using Firefox to access some sort of web-based mail service; is that what Mappi is? If this is the case, you can export your mail following the instructions at

In any case, LibreOffice can't help. The uni has instructions for those who do not wish to use Office 365 at

As suggested by Librefrance you might consider Thunderbird as a mail client.
