Import old Thunderbird mail into Thunderbird

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read up on my post.  I recently had to backup my data and reformat my data due to a corrupt XP.  I've configured thunderbird now so it has my POP3 settings, but I still don't have my old mail.  I was wondering how I go about recovering my old mail as I backed-uped the entire old C drive, and have all the data that was there before.  I suspect I have to search the harddrive for a specific file, but don't know what the extension is.  Thank you for your help and good luck!  I also may not be able to get back immediatley because it's getting towards night over here, so just be prepared.  Thank you
