I'm wondering why when I transfer all my mail and imap profile settings into thunderbird that it doesn't create an Thunderbird account. Do I need to reboot or do something else?

Here are some snapshots:

Here is my thunderbird sqlite file for the calendar but I don't see my calendar as updated:

Here my thunderbird accounts are not created even though I have all the files transferred to the folder:

Here is my IMAP folder with the files but the IMAP accounts are not showing. The POP accounts are showing up in Thunderbird but no accounts are created when I view Tools->Account Settings:

What else do I need to do?

Much thanks,
Victor

When you say you transferred the settings into TB, did you simply copy the files/folders to TB's folder structure, or did you first go through the process IN THUNDERBIRD to set up a new account? For the calendar, is this the Lightning Add-on? Have you installed it on this computer? (Check Tools menu, Add-ons, and see if it's in the list.) Where are you transferring this from? Another computer that used TB?

See http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/Configure+an+account for the steps to set up a new email account in TB.

Hi ElcondCT,

I had to copy the entire folder and subfolders. I think II missed some files/folders/.
