I think I just need to know the file name structure so I can search on it? I am on a PC using Windows XP and have made likely folder location unhidden: C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application

but file of e-mail contacts is not obvious to me in that folder.

    Hello dagazheart,

    Thunderbird lets you export your Address Book as LDIF file (for LDAP directory), Comma-separated values (CSV) file, or tab-delimited file (TAB/TXT).

    To export your Address Book, go to Tools > Export (from the Address Book window), and select your preferred export format.  Then you can import the file to your other application.

    Hope this helps!
