Creating and moving a new profile

I'm trying to check out a folder from an archived e-mail file for a 
reported virus.  So I created a new profile and moved it to an Iomega 
floppy. I tried to follow Irwin's well written documentation on 
_TB-Managing Profiles_  but get lost with a couple of items.  I want to 
save the replies for future reference so should I post this in secnews so 
nothing gets clipped?

I use to flag the NG messages in Thunderbird I want to keep as 
reference, then use File > Offline > Get Flagged Messages every once in 
a while, so I have them archived locally.

Unfortunately TB doesn't handle the offline messages the way I'd like, 
so acting correctly is required to not erase them inadvertently.

Best way to move Thunderbird Profiles & mail from one computer to a new computer
I have a new computer, and have moved all the firefox settings from the old one to the new one. Now I want to move the Profiles and Mail from the old computer (Thunderbird profiles) to the new computer. Both computers have the latest thunderbird mail program.

last straw
Hi. I lost all the data associated with my earlier 'default' profile, while trying to create another. I was following the 'How to manage Profiles' script, located the 'default' profile folder and did not back it up. I created a new profile. But when I tried to revert to the 'default' profile I couldn't - and all the data held in it seems to have disappeared. I assume I've lost it all - but question still remains - where might I get some instruction in the gentle art of Thunderbird? Max Max wrote: > Hi. > I lost all the data a...

Profile Manager seems not to create new profile in Windows 7 x 64
Hi everyone, I am transitioning from Vista to Windows 7. I've been using Seamonkey for years now and migrating from XP, Vista, etc quite successfuly. Overall, Seamonkey browser seems to be working fine. I do not have any issue. The problem that I am facing is with the Profile Manager (again under Windows 7 x64). For sake of discussion, I am using Seamonkey 2.10 and I have also tried the new 2.11 beta. No difference in what I am describing below. I am trying to generate a new profile to add to the default profile you get. As example, I am using "Test". I went throug...

Creating a new profile
I've been using the same profile since I started using FF years ago. I think it's time to start fresh, and hopefully become a little more efficient. What's the best way (if any) to start a new profile without completely losing everything and starting from scratch, but to get rid of all the leftover junk from old extensions, etc. I'm particularly concerned with losing all my Greasemonkey scripts. I use Xmarks, so I'm not worried about bookmarks, and I use RoboForm, so I'm not worried about passwords. Tarkus wrote: > I've been using the same ...
