I think I have the Netscape mail-directory from old computer, how do I copy it to new computer?

(Netscape 7.1 Mail, Thunderbird or Seamonkey).


I think I have the files in Olduserbackup\xjuwtwtb.slt\Mail

I create a new mail account with server pop.superuser.com, and find a directory with that name in C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Profiles\default\ou6umlif.slt\Mail

I replace the files with those from the backup, but Netscape still shows pop.superuser.com in its interface.

Is there some kind of registry setting somewhere I will have to change?

I suggest removing the entire C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Profiles\default\ou6umlif.slt folder from the new machine, and replacing it with the xjuwtwtb.slt folder out of the backup. That should transplant the entire profile from the old machine, rather than just copying the emails, which is probably the desired result in any case.

1) You have to replace the content of the folder. –  Olav Mar 31 '12 at 8:50
    
2) Set the Local folders settings (Through GUI) –  Olav Mar 31 '12 at 8:50
