I have Thunderbird installed on my PC. It was tied to an email account which has recently been moved to a different server (MX records changed etc). However, the user still needs to sometimes access info from the old account.

1. How can I export or transfer the emails and data etc from my Thunderbird installation to his PC (new Thunderbird install)?

2. Will he be able to access the emails and data even though the account will not be active (offline)?

Thanks in advance for your help.
