What TB files do I move from XP to a new Win10 installation that I launched, then closed?

I just got a Win10 machine, installed TBird, then launched it, did not enter any info, then closed it.

I note that the new .default folder has 4 or 5 subfolders with the same names as those on my XP machine, but there is no MAIL subfolder, which I assume is because I have not entered any info.

Am I correct in assuming that if I move the entire contents of the XP MAIL subfolder to the .default folder in Win10 ROAMING, that will move all of my emails, as well as names of accounts, passwords, and any other needed info?

Thanks to all. I',m an experienced user.

Using my home computer I get all my emails. When I am at work using my laptop I only get emails from that day or the day before. So no history. No way to work on projects when away from home which is hampering productivity a great deal! Please advise why that should be so. Nothing wrong with my laptop. Thank you. Is it my server then which is Optimum?
