The easiest way to do this is to use mozbackup to create a backup, and use it to restore it on the new computer. This ensrue that the directory structure, folders, and settings are properly copied as per the Thunderbird's FS. Do you want me to connect with you remotely and do this? OR do you want to be instructed? Thanks
