Hello,

I am about to do a new fresh install of my Windows 7 and I was wondering if it is possible to somehow transfer/copy the account settings on Thunderbird, so I won't have to set up everything form scratch again upon re-installing. What I mean is all the different e-mail accounts, folders and e-mail filters etc that I have set up. Is there a way I can transfer all that onto a fresh install of Thunderbird on my new Windows 7 install? This would save me a lot of time and work. I am not talking about transferring e-mails (I know how to do that manually), but all the account settings and such.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Lars

Does Thunderbird Support Windows 10 - Windows 10 not listed on System Requirements Page?

Hi,

I checked the Thunderbird System Requirements page (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/38.2.0/system-requirements/), and Windows 10 is not listed as one of the supported operating systems. I've been reading in the Support Community that people have been having problems with Thunderbird in Windows 10 so I'm wondering if Thunderbird is actually not supported in Windows 10.

The System Requirements page for Firefox does list Windows 10 as a supported operating system so I don't think it's a case that the Thunderbird System Requirements page has not been updated yet.

So, does anyone have something definitive from Mozilla stating that Windows 10 is a supported operating system for Thunderbird?

Thanks a million for your help!

The Folder pane and message list are showing up as about 6 point on my 27 inch Apple screen and very hard to read. I know there is a font adjuster add-on for Firefox Mac users, but is there the same for Thunderbird? (Before I go blind!)
