I backed up my Thunderbird messages from the top level message folder, not the profile, from my old computer, which died during migration.

I tried using the import tools to no avail.

What I did on my previous migration was to just copy my local folders into the profile. i have tried this but it doesn't work. The copied test folder does not display. This was after exiting Thunderbird and starting up again.

Can you help please?

I tried to ask this question on reddit this AM.

Verrrry long story short. I have a sizable (16.3gb) Local Folder of emails, that I need to import/transfer into a "live" gmail account that I have sync'd in Thunderbird. Manually dragging and dropping all 70k emails into the server folder is getting me mayyybe 500MB worth of emails at a time. Is there a faster method? I have an MBOX file from google takeout as well.

Thank you in advance for your kind assistance!

Downgrade from 102 to 91 because I can't use the add-ons 'Category Manager', 'Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV' and 'TbSync'

Recently there was an automatic update of Thunderbird to 102.2.2 (64-bits). Now I can't use the add-ons 'Category Manager', 'Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV' and 'TbSync' anymore because they are not compatible. They are for Thunderbird 91.0a1 - 99.0. I have a few questions regarding this matter: 1. Can I stop the automatic update of Thunderbird? How do I do that? 2. Can I downgrade Thunderbird from 102.2.2 to Thunderbird 99? A. I suppose I have to backup my profile folder. Download and install the version of Thunderbird 99 from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/99.0b2/win64/nl/ (and than the dutch .exe file) B. Import the backup of my profile folder But: I'm not sure about these procedure. Do I have to remove Thunderbird 102.2.2 first? Is this correct and can I use the add-ons again. Or do I miss something?

Thanks in advance.

I recently followed the instructions for updating from Outlook 2007. the instructions state that after importing outlook data that the thunderbird client would update to the latest, this per the instructions.

The process is not working. Thunderbird states that I have version 31.8 installed, and that it is up-to-date and no updates are available.

Current release is some 70 versions beyond release 31.8. How do I get latest fixes and features installed?

Before I wiped my laptop clean of all its 64 bit Windows 10 software I copied its contents to my external drive. The hundreds of old local folders are located on the external drive at

D:\XPS15\Users\Robert\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\oan1e497.default\Mail\Local Folders

and the newly installed Mozilla on the 64 bit Windows 11 laptop contains a mere dozen of local folders located at

C:\Users\bobby\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\wi6x6mkz.default-release\Mail\Local Folders

Notice the slight change in the name of the user. The new installation of Mozilla is Version 102.2.

My question is: Which directory on the new laptop must be replaced to add the old local folders to the folders on the newly restored laptop?

Thank you
