Thunderbird3 - ugh!

  [email protected] 12:51 26 Jan 2010

Anyone tried the Help bit yet. Type your question and get re-directed to someone posting the same question??? Fine if someone has replied with the solution...
Contacts/mail in older version of T'bird on separate HDD (XP).
I want to manually copy the data to T'bird3 and Win7.
What are the file extensions and where do they go?

Contacts are "abook.mab" and in Win7 it goes into AppData > Roaming - where the T'bird profile is.
Copy "history.mab" too.
To recover emails, copy/overwrite Mail & ImapMail folders.

With any major upgrade to either Firefox or Thunderbird experience has taught me(the hard way)to always save your profile using Mozbackup before making any changes as upgrades can easily corrupt your profile.
