how can I backup my email files & address book?

Posted

Since a normal PC backup doesn't include email files, I need to have a way to backup my emails and address book in case my PC crashes & I need to import the files to either a new PC or my current one.

I am talking about Thunderbird, but the page doesn't address my issue. I need a way to backup my emails & address book so I can retrieve those files in case of a PC failure.
