You're in luck, as it appears to be a text file. You'll need to replace the
*q5mlc576.default* with the relevant directory under .mozilla-thunderbird
(if you only have one profile then it'll be easy). beltazoid.catz is my
mail server - yours will probably be whatever your ISP's mail server is
Now, I haven't tested copying the file into another profile, but I'm sure
you'll let us know how you get on! :)
