Is this a dual boot or do you have two boxen one with linux the other with windows? You can export your address book and bookmarks, but I think you'll have to setup your servers and such manually.
good luck.

I have a dual boot machine. I have also sussed this problem. It involves copying directories and reseting file permissions, I will post the solution as soon as I have confirmed it is working fine, for others to benefit. It did all email, email settings, filters - everything...
