    Combining thunderbird profiles?

    Hey
    I use Mozilla Thunderbird primarily as my mail client. Here's my problem - I have mail spread across three computers in thunderbird profiles. This is from when my laptop died, I had to pick up mail on one of my pcs until I bought a new one. Now is it possible to collect all three profiles together and combine them into one so I have all my mail on one computer so I can easily back it all up and reference it?

    I know about import but that only imports from other clients. If I copy the profiles into my local profile folder, that won't almagamate the profiles together into one? or will thunderbird do it?

    Any advice is helpful,

    Jamie.

    The "Inbox" file is basic data, eg: Headers and base64 data, text and so on... You could probably just combine the data of all the files.

    Yeah probably. What just opening the inbox file up in wordpad or something and adding the contents of the inbox files?

    Yeah, make sure you make backups first though, and you will probably need a \r\n\r\n between each file so they get classed as new mail.
