Import mail boxes from Thunderbird crashes mail!

Advertisement
Has anyone any idea what I can do to ensure Mail does not crash when I import mail boxes from Thunderbird?
I would love to us Mail but unless I can bring my mailboxes it isn't happening.
Is there a file size limit or is Mail for Mac just flakey?
