Moving Mozilla mail from Windows to Linux


I've just begun to use Linux, keeping it on a seperate machine from my Windows... now I'd liek to start making the jump to exclusive use of Linux. I have a TON of mail stored in folders through Mozilla... is there anyway to copy the files and paste them on Linux somewhere, so that when I open Mozilla mail on Linux they'll appear??

Thanks for the help...

do you know where they are on windows ? On Linux they should be in a directory called .mozilla in your homedirectory. try copying them over maybe it works..

I know where they are in Windows.. I just didn't know if they had the same file extension in Linux, if it as possible..
