I have my Mozilla Thunderbird full with email accounts. That's over 200 different accounts that I wish to move on my new laptop.

I tried to find a way to export them but Thunderbird only has an Import option.

I wonder if there is a way I could somehow move all of them from one Windows 7 installation to another Windows 7 installation.

Thank you, Maya White


Copy your Thunderbird "profile" folder to the new computer. On Windows, it is kept at %AppData%\Thunderbird.


Use MozBackup http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/ Does a great job moving everything or just parts.Easy to use and never had any problems in dozens of uses.
