Have you exported your profile in XP? if yes then just use the import option (in the tools menu) in Thunderbird on Ubuntu.

Thunderbird will allow you to share a single profile between windows and Linux if your machine is a dual boot..

Typically I just copy the profile folder then edit the profiles.ini to the new profile name. DONE.. profile imported. works on Windows or Linux

c:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Settings\Thunderbird\profiles.ini
