Unable to import OUTLOOK mail into another program.

I am trying to import mail from Outlook to Thunderbird(because I have not
been able to import my old e-mail addresses into Outlook) Anyway,
Thunderbird tries to import the mail and addresses in Outlook, but it tells
me it is "unable to save your message as a draft. Unable to open the
temporary file %PO%. Check your 'Temporary Directory' setting."

I have no mail messages open. I do have 2 messages saved in my Outlook
Draft folder and I assume this is what the message is referring to. The
importation process cannot continue because it gets stuck here. I
successfully did this in my other computer that is running XP Professional.
This one is running XP home. Probably not an issue.

Anyone know what to do about this? What settings need to be changed? Where
is my "temporary Directory' file?
