Mozilla Thunderbird is available for a variety of operating systems, many Windows versions, Mac and Linux too.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I suppose that anyone able to answer needs to know first which O.S. you are using...

Location of files May 8, 2004

Hi Maria,

Here is also a link to a website where you can find all the locations of files and folders in your profile directory: http://www.holgermetzger.de/pdl.html.

At http://www.holgermetzger.de/efaqgeneral.html#9 you can find a general description of all backups, e.g.: "Mails:
Your emails are stored in the subfolder \Mail\nameofmailserver \ - for example \Mail\pop.mail.yahoo.com\ To backup your emails, save the files without extension, for example "INBOX". The *.msf files are index files, they save the way your mailboxes are displayed (sort order, read/unread status). Just save the complete mail folder if you are uncertain what to save."

Have a nice day!

Michaela
