Using MovBackup I moved my Firefox and Thunderbird accounts from a windows xp pc to a new pc with windows 7. Firefox opened with my old profile and all my bookmarks, looks just like the setup I had on the old computer. Thunderbird opened with my profile, email address, address book BUT the inbox is empty even though the profile file for inbox is huge. I had some problems with the program asking me for passwords over and over again, but I verfified that my passwords were correct. How do I get Thunderbird to download my old emails into the inbox?
I read a topic in this forum about thunderbird and windows 7 and the answer referred the person to thunderbird tutorials. You should know they do not cover this problem. They do not mention transferring from one computer to another.
