Martin, you don't seem to be familiar with apps for MacBook.

Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.

Hello, you said popular Mozilla email software - their email software is called "Thunderbird" and it is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

If you were referring to another program could you please provide the name?

OK. I have TB set up on one Mac and want to move everything to another Mac, including folders, setting, etc. , what is the best way to do?

Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.

Welcome back, good to hear from you.

You would have to move the profile folder from the Mac with your current email setup to the other Mac.

You can find the profile on the following path:

~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/<Profile name>/

The first character is the "tilde" character which can be found usually under the "Esc" key on the keyboard and it literally means "home folder" on Mac OSX.

Once you've copied that over, you can launch TB and your contacts, emails, etc will be on the new computer.
