  1. Hi!

    I've been using Thunderbird 2 portable on my USB-stick for a long time, but now I've downloaded and installed Thunderbird 3 beta 1 (normal installation, not portable). Is it possible to transfer all my email from the portable version to Thunderbird 3?

    Thanks.

    absolutely. Use mozilla backup 1.4.3 (free)

    compact all folders first.

    Thank you, great program, BUT...
    I did not detect my portable version of Thunderbird. Do you know about a workaround for this?

    nope - forward the emails to a regular T-bird.... only solution I can think of.

    Yes, I was afraid that was the only working solution. I'll do that.
