Shifting Thunderbird mail and settings from XP to Ubuntu
I'm moving all my gear in Thunderbird from Windows XP on an IBM Thinkpad to a Dell 1150 that is running Ubuntu 6.06 fine. I have copied the entire Thunderbird directory containing the .ini and .js files onto a USB drive. Using the Thunderbird Import facility (Tools>import) I'm unable to even locate any relevant files using the Import function. For example address books are in .ldi or .ldif files. I don't have any of those. When I try to import mail, the dialogue box offers to import 'Communicator 4x.'
I would appreciate any pointers in the right direction or suggestions. Thanks in advance.
