evolution to thunderbird can i save my stuff?

Greetings all,

i am about to load a different OS on my wifes computer. She is running gnome right now, but when i do this i want to load something a little less resource intensive, like xfce4. Also, i want to change her email client from evolution to thunderbird.
so, is there a way i can save all the emails that she doesnt want thrown away, and perhaps even her address book?
i dont care about the filters, i can redo those, but i would like to be able to save the other stuff.

any pointers?

That article does not apply to me. Using Evolution 2.0... not the same file structure.

Any help?
