Software :: Importing Thunderbird Settings From Portable Apps Thunderbird

Sep 13, 2010

I had a portable apps version of Thunderbird (windows) that runs off a thumb drive and wanted to take the settings and transfer them to my Thunderbird that's on my Linux computer.

This is what I did:

First, I installed thunderbird on my Ubuntu 10.04 Linux box and opened it, and closed it (so that it would create the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder in the user account).

Then, I renamed the linux /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder to .thunderbird_ORIGINAL

Then, I created a new /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder

Then, I took the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableDataprofile folder and copied it to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

Then, I looked into the /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL folder and wrote down the name of the folder with the ".default" extension.

Then, I renamed the profile folder (that came from the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableData folder) "<name-I-wrote-down>.default".

And then, I copied the profiles.ini folder from /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

I opened up Thunderbird in Linux and everything seems fine! (I'll definitely be keeping a backup just in case)

My question is: is this fine and dandy, or a recipe for disaster?

Software :: Importing Evolution Files To Thunderbird?

Oct 3, 2009

I have what I believe to be an Evolution mail archive which I now find the need to access. For each mailbox, I see these files

bash-3.1$ ls Inbox*
Inbox Inbox.cmeta Inbox.ev-summary

On the original cdr backup, there is also Inbox.sbd/ which appears to be an empty directory. I can read this stuff with mutt -f Inbox, but mutt has it's limitations. I would like to be able to get them into thunderbird, or even gmail. What's the trick? When I boot thunderbird, it doesn't really want to know.

Ubuntu Installation :: Thunderbird Add-on For Importing From Live Mail

Jul 27, 2010

Would anyone have a recommendation for a Thunderbird extension or add-on for importing e-mail from Live Mail? I have a dual installation of win7 & Ubuntu 10.04. Ultimately, I want to import my e-mail archive into Thunderbird on the Ubuntu partition. For the transition, I have both Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail on the win7 side. I'm running Thunderbird 3.0.6, though I could upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Can't Import Address Book From Thunderbird To Thunderbird

Aug 26, 2010

Thanks to Lucid not working properly on i845, i855 and other 8xx chips, had to re-install Karmic on my mum's computer.I saved all the data from her old install and I ve managed to get all her old emails from thunderbird, but I cant import her address book.In Thunderbird/tools/import/addressbooks it only allows importing of LDIF, .tab, .csv and .txt files, but I cant find any of these files in any of the Thunderbird, .Thunderbird, Mozilla-Thunderbird or Mozilla folders in Home folder or anywhere, all I can find is "abook.mab" which IS supposed to be her address book, but when I try and import it the entries are blank and/or indecipherable (prob cos not a compatible file type).

Its one of those "simple" things to do, thats taken hours and hours of time, but that I cant actually find out how to do.

Ubuntu :: Move Firefox And Thunderbird Settings To Another Disk?

Feb 4, 2010

It appears that my HDD is failing at the moment, so I'm going to replace it by two new disks (RAID1) over the weekend.
At the same moment I'll stick in another 6GB RAM. Because I'm currently running the 32-bit system, I'll be upgrading to 64-bit (doh).

Now then, is it possible to copy all Firefox and Thunderbird settings (settings, accounts, bookmarks, cookies etc) over to the other disk?
If so, which folder(s) do I have to copy?

Ubuntu :: (GNOME) Thunderbird For Two Users - "Thunderbird Is Already Running But Is Not Responding"

Sep 9, 2010

I run version 10.04 GNOME. My problem is (after substantial searching) that I need to have both users ('juliusz' and 'sarah') running Thunderbird but with the same profile (settings, email, accounts etc. preferably of 'juliusz'). The only results on the internet are share Thunderbird between Windows and Ubuntu.

I have two users juliusz and sarah. I need either of them to have the same profile, always in synch whenever they logon to own account. When I tried to edit sarah's /home/sarah/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.ini by inserting: Path=/home/juliusz/.mozilla-thunderbird/xxxxxxx.default after i run Thunderbird for 'sarah' I get message: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system." I checked with "ps aux" there is no Thunderbird running in sarah's session. There is no Thunderbird running in juliusz's session when I reloged to juliusz.

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuck At Importing Documents And Settings?

Jul 18, 2010

I recently had to reinstall Ubuntu on my second Hardrive. (As before I used the Windows installer, and only had 30 GB, when I tried to fix this, I ended up accidentally deleting everything.) Anyway, I started to install, and I selected the option to import documents and settings. Well, now it's stuck at 83% and it says "Importing Documents and settings" It has been like this for about an hour now.

I am importing from WIndows 7 on my first Hard Drive, to my new installation of Ubuntu 10.04 on my second hard drive. Help is much appreciated. I really just want to get back to Ubuntu. Using Windows 7 the past couple of days has been pure hell. I hate my PC freezing every 2 seconds, and hoarding my RAM like candy. Ubuntu for me was pure heaven, and I would like my sanctuary back.

Ubuntu :: Use Thunderbird For RSS?

Mar 2, 2010

Work has decided to allow a few of us to get RSS feeds, and their reader of preference at this stage is Thunderbird (on XP).Couple of quesions:

1) Does anyone here use Thunderbird for RSS? Have your experiences with it been good or bad?

2) Seem to recall from a brief stint (ie less than a week) using it few years ago it used to pop up a window notifying you of new items received in the feeds, but I'm unable to make it do that now,Am I missing something really obvious, or am I mistaken in thinking it used to notify me of new feed items?

Ubuntu :: Run Thunderbird Without GUI?

Dec 13, 2010

I just recently configured Thunderbird to work in the Messaging Applet via this tutorial.[URL]It works great and is very convenient.However the entry in the applet disappears after I close Thunderbird's window. I was wondering if there was a way to run Thunderbird without the gui so all I would have is the indicator in the messaging applet.When I get an email then it would notify me and I would click on it and it would reopen the Thunderbird window

Fedora :: Add BCC To Thunderbird Or Evolution?

Feb 23, 2010

i finally tried to use a mail client other than gmail, and can't figure out how to Bcc someone. Evolution has a CC field, but i don't see how to make a Bcc field. Thunderbird doesn't show either one. Anyone know how to do this? Btw, it took me about 2 or 4 minutes to setup Evolution, but Thunderbird just asked for my email and password, and set itself up in seconds! I guess that i will be using Thunderbird, since it seems that they're not messing thunderbird, once you already have an email address in the "To" field, you can click the "To:" label, and it opens a drop down menu, and then you can select Bcc.

I just download Thunderbird 3 and a file named as thunderbird-3.0.tar.bz2 got downloaded.
But I do not know how to install this file. I am very new to Ubuntu and recently migrated from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 9.10.

So please suggest me a simple solution.

Jun 18, 2010

After upgrading to 10.04, Thunderbird crashes every 20 minutes or so. No mozilla crash reporter pops up... it just dies. No idea why. I filed a bug, but nothing seems to be happening with it. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one experience this level of instability.

Ubuntu :: Upgrading To Thunderbird 3.1.7?

Dec 24, 2010

I haven't installed Email yet on ubuntu 10.04.1. When I do so I was planning to install Thunderbird. According to the prerequisite on - [URL] Thunderbird 3.0 should be installed and operational before upgrading to version 3.1.7. However on checking in available version to download via Software Center, the version there appears to be 3.1.7 already. Does that mean version 3.0 isn't a prerequisite after all? If it is, where can it be obtained or is just a simple download from Software Center to install 3.1.7?
