    It seems I ask this question after every new Fedora release. How do
    I go about transferring my Thunderbird pop mail files from this F-12
    computer to a second computer running F-13.

    I've been running Redhat and Fedora Linux since 1999 and have never
    once succeeded in transferring my mail files.

    Can anyone tell me where to look for a clear and simple step by step
    procedure for doing this? My daughter manages to keep her mail
    messages [on her Mac] back to the beginning of time, mine never go
    back much more than six months, some I would like to keep.

    The computers are all tied to our LAN, I can put files on a flash
    drive, cdrom, etc. but my effort never seem to be able to get the
    job done. I will try anything ...
