Transferring Mozilla Email from one computer to another

How can I transfer EMail from one computer to another.  Both use Mozilla SeaMonkey.
1. I'll use a CD but need help finding the file?
2. Copying CD to the second computer?

Hello car13lin,

1. You can copy the profile from one computer to another. SeaMonkey profile is located in C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\profiles\\ folder.

The folder is hidden, so you have to unhide hidden folders to see it. In Windows XP, open Windows Explorer or any folder.  Click on Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  If you want to see system files as well, uncheck Hide protected operating system files.   Click OK.

In Windows Vista, open Windows Explorer or any folder. Click the Layout button (to the left of the Views button). Click Folder Options > View tab. Check "Show hidden files and folders".   Click OK

2. You can use Mozbackup to back up your SeaMonkey data.  Then copy the data to new computer.  Use Mozbackup to import the data to SeaMonkey on new computer.

Note: When you copy with CD, in the new computer, make sure the data are not write protected.

Hope this helps!
