I tried the manual steps to import PST into Thunderbird but it didn't work for me. Then I tried Yota PST File Converter Tool which I found on Microsoft forum website. It helped me to directly import PST file into Thunderbird account without installing Outlook application. I liked the simple interface that was easy for me to understand. The tool also allowed me to repair corrupt PST files and then import them into Thunderbird account.
