cd ~ tar cvjf emails.tar.bz2 .thunderbirdThis should create a tar archive with everything thunderbird needs to know. If you then want to revert to the point at which you made the backup, you just have to extract this tar file back into the ~/.thunderbird folder. If you do that every few days or just before you do something critical, you will always have an up to date backup of all settings and all emails. Let us know how it goes. If the tar file doesn't magically appear in your home folder, look out for any error messages in the output and post them here.
