    First make a backup of .thunderbird on Windows, just in case. Then you can just copy your Ubuntu .thunderbird over the Windows one. You can also try the TEBE addon here; http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com...hp?f=12&t=2957

    I use FEBE for Firefox and it has worked flawlessly. It will backup the entire profile, which you then unzip into the new directory.
