I am having difficulty understanding "all" the information I've read on moving my "emails" from the Windows7 Thunderbird to the Ubuntu Thunderbird (both systems dual boot) on my & my wife's Toshiba laptops.
I can open ProfileManager in Windows 7 but I don't know how to do this in Ubuntu 12.10?
I've downloaded & printed the following & tried everything suggested: (especially, concering the profile.ini file in Ubuntu)
Moving from Windows to Linux
Move to a new PC
Transfering data to a new profile-Thunderbird
Moving your profile folder
Of course, the above help topics reference may other links, too.
I don't have this issue with the Adress book...it's up an running without a problem!
I would be very appreciative to anyone who can give me a " ...simple... " step by step to get my wife's emails from her Windows 7 Thunderbird to the Ubuntu 12.10 version 17.0.5 of Thunderbird.
