This question already has an answer here:
I have an old laptop that had Thunderbird installed on it. I just bought a new one and have installed the latest version of Thunderbird (v31.3.0) on it. I'm looking to:
- Transfer all the emails of my Inbox/Sent folders on the old Thunderbird instance (running on my old machine) to the Inbox/Sent folders on my new one; and
- Transfer all "contacts" from my old Thunderbird instance to my new one, such that, when I go to compose a new email, and I begin typing in the name of the recipient (in the To: field), Thunderbird should auto-complete for me.
Is this possible to do? If so, how? If not, then why?
