Used Windows Easy File Transfer for TBird, uploaded to new computer, but how to move emails to TBird?
How do I locate and transfer email uploaded to new computer to Thunderbird?

I'm using Thunderbird on Windows 10 with two user accounts (one private, one business). I set up all of my email-accounts on the private user account and am now trying to use the same user profile on the other account. I tried copying the profile-folder as described here:
Following these instructions, I copied the contents of the profile folder on my private user account, startet thunderbird with the -ProfileManager command, created a new profile, closed Thunderbird again, pasted the contents into the new profile folder and started Tunderbird again, hoping to see my email-accounts, but Thunderbird still behaves like after a clean installation, opening the setup-wizard, but ignoring the profile settings completely.
I also tried to edit profiles.ini so it shares the profile of the other user account ( see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Sharing_profiles_-_mail ), but without luck.
In both cases, the right profile folder is linked according to Help/Troubleshooting Informationen, but it's settings are completely ignored.
Did I miss something? Any help will be welcome.
Lost email bodies on Thunderbird: many of my emails in Inbox and Archive are missing. Also need to integrate to old profiles into current setup

This is a problem that keeps getting more and more messy. A little over a year ago, I posted the following email:
"Some emails disappear from my Inbox and Archives. When I try to do a search for some of those emails, I find the header and the first few words, but not the email body. I have four email accounts on Thunderbird--Fastmail, Wiscmail (University of Wisconsin) and two Google accounts, but it doesn't matter which account is used--all accounts occasionally lose an email. For awhile I tried archiving emails right away but discovered that some would get "disembodied" right away. My archives are not stored online--instead they are stored on my computer. I use Thunderbird version 31.3.0 on Ubuntu Linux 14.04."
I never received a response. Since then, the situation has gotten more complicated.
I purchased a new laptop. My old laptop had Ubuntu Linux 14.04 on it, but I installed Ubuntu 14.10 on the new laptop. However, I had problems with that OS version and so I did a clean install and installed Ubuntu 14.04 since it was better supported. Now I have two old Thunderbird profiles, neither of which I have installed yet.
Currently I use Thunderbird version 31.5.0. My current setup and my old profiles all have a Fastmail account and two Gmail accounts. My Fastmail account is the main one and that's where I'm losing the most email--I don't use the Gmail accounts enough to know whether I'm losing emails there or no, but i seem to remember doing so before. I also have an old Office 365 account which my university used, but it's not installed on my current Thunderbird setup and do not plan on doing so. All of these are IMAP accounts.
To maximize privacy, I had been keeping my archives on Local Folders, but more recently, I have been letting my Fastmail account keep old messages. I am afraid to archive these messages for fear of losing them. Only problem now is that I can't open some old emails in the Inbox--even recent ones.
I'm at my wit's end. I've begun looking at new email clients because of my frustration. Hopefully, someone will respond this time?

I used a program that transfers apps from an old computer to a new one. I opened Thunderbird on the new computer and all of my account info and folders appear there; however, it won't show me messages. I can get a list of messages to show if I open the inbox in a new window. I can read them but they take up the bottom of the screen, all the way across, blocking the left menu. And I can't delete a message. I can't more on to the next message either. When I first saw this problem, I looked for a solution in Thunderbird menus but nothing works. I downloaded the latest version and reinstalled Thunderbird after uninstalling the older one. The same problem appears. I'm using Windows 10 and didn't have any problem on my old laptop. When I close Thunderbird and try to reopen it, nothing happens.
