How to export/import Thunderbird mail to another computer with Thunderbird mail

Hi, I can't find information on this.
I have to change my computer that is currently running Thunderbird to another computer that will also run Thunderbird Mail.

I guess that I can copy the whole Local Folder into the new computer, but it isn't read.

Is there another way?

You only need to copy the hidden ~.thunderbird/<8-random-characters>.default folder.
