Thunderbird is a great open source email client but it doesn’t have build-in backup tool to backup emails, address book, settings and extension that already installed. For advanced user backing up Thunderbird emails can be achieved by copying the profiles directory to another and zip it for archieving. To restore it all you need is copy back the profiles to Thunderbird directory.
This tutorial will show you how easy to create backup from Thunderbird and restore it.
The long waited open source email client Thunderbird 3 is now released! Upgrading from Thunderbird 2 to Thunderbird 3 is very easy and almost automatically.
Once you finished installing version 3, you’ll see Migration Assistant page with explanation of 3 new features worth knowing about. In my testing as I’m using IMAP, Thunderbird show its IMAP synchronize option and offer an alternative to not synchronize to save disk space and data traffic costs.
