Thunderbirdxferdata

This page is dedicated to transferring parts of an existing Mozilla Thunderbird profile to a new computer. I had to do this last night to transfer my (long list of) message filters from my LTSP server (which holds my TB profile at work) to my laptop. This way, when I check my e-mail from home or on the road, it will still toss mailing list e-mails, customer e-mails, and others with message filters, into the appropriate subfolders (keeping me from having to sift through a rather large and cluttered Inbox).

Message Filters

The name of the message filter is msgFilterRules.dat and there is one in each of your email accounts, which is located in your TB profile.

Junk Filters

The name of the junk filter is training.dat, and it too is located in each of your email accounts, which is located in your TB profile.
