Just copy abook.mab from the old to the new. But see below because you might prefer to copy your old ~/.icedove directory and automigrate.

Export/Import is great for archival or migrating between different email clients, but I found copying raw data files to be the most convenient when going between Thunderbird instances. However, automigration is likely what you want.

The official way of migrating is to copy your *entire* ~/.icedove directory to your new computer.

tar zcf icedove.tar.gz .icedove
# copy icedove.tar.gz to new computer
tar zxf icedove.tar.gz

Since the Icedove->Thunderbird unrebranding, the first time Thunderbird starts with no ~/.thunderbird (if you already have a new one you can remove or rename it to, for example, .thunderbird.disabled), it will automatically migrate *everything* into a new ~/.thunderbird directory. All your account settings and plugins should just work. You should then be able to remove your copied ~/.icedove directory and any renamed empty (e.g.) ~/.thunderbird.disabled. There might be another copied temporary icedove directory because Thunderbird will try hard to not harm your data.

Kind regards,


Thanks for all replies.

I followed the procedure:

To transfer the address book (Source: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Move_to_a_new_PC):

In the old micro: Tools -> Address Book -> Edit -> Select All -> Tools -> Export

In the new micro: Tools -> Address Book -> Tools -> Import

With some difficulty, I discovered that in order to migrate the messages it was necessary to install the module ImportExportTools (https://freeshell.de//~kaosmos/mboximport-en.html), according to the Importing and exporting your mail site (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Thunderbird_:_FAQs_:_Migration#Specific_programs%20).

So I downloaded the "addonn" importexporttools-3.3.0-sm + tb.xpi from the Extensions page (https://addons.mozilla.org/pt-br/thunderbird/addon/importexporttools/).

After downloading click on the menu in Add-ins -> Install from a file, and I selected the file importexporttools-3.3.0-sm + tb.xpi.

And finally after installed I was able to transfer the files containing the messages with the command:

Right-click a folder in Icedove (old micro) and: Import / Export in mbox / eml format -> Export folder -> Select the location to save the file and confirm

Right-click on a folder in Thunderbird (new micro) and: Import / export in mbox / eml format -> Import mbox file -> Import directly one or more mbox files -> Select the file containing the messages and confirm

Thank you for the attention,
