Backup Account Settings

One way of exporting account settings is that you can backup all your account settings in Mozilla Thunderbird by a software program known as Mozbackup installed in the computer. You could then take that backup to the second machine that is already installed with Mozbackup. This way the entire account settings in Mozilla Thunderbird caould be exported on to the other machine from the first machine.

Moving Profile Folder

Firstly, go to the Thunderbird folder of the Document and Setting of the C drive with the selected Username. Now you need to open its default profile folder called the ‘abc123.default’. Then you need to copy the Profile folder ‘abc123.default’ to any external storage devices. Now, to export profile folder to another computer, you have to first download, install and run Mozilla Thunderbird program on the new computer. A new Default Profile folder will then be created when you run Mozilla Thunderbird for the first time. Then, shut the computer and move the profile folder you copied from the Default folder of the old computer to the Default Mozilla Thunderbird Profile folder i.e.’abc123.default’ of the new computer.

Things to Know

You need to take a backup of the account settings that you want to export to another computer. This can be done using Mozbackup installed in both the computers. Moving the profile folder setting from one computer to another through backup is an important way to export the account settings of Mozilla Thunderbird. While exporting files between computers, check that the file formats are supported in both the computers.
