    Hi and welcome to FpcH

    I don't use Thunderbird - but did find this.

    Only just noticed this thread so may a be too late with a reply... but here goes anyway.

    For Thunderbird users there is a free utility called MozBackup which does the work for you.

    You can create a complete archive of all your emails as a single file which can be saved anywhere. I use it all the time and find it invaluable. It is also adjustable so for instance you can save emails and all your addresses and passwords or select other things to save or leave out.

    I have used it for about 10 years now and it works with all versions of Thunderbird and has never let me down. I can even copy all my accounts and emails from PC to PC if I am travelling.

    Thanks Joddle - that is far more helpful than what I posted
