There's a hidden file in your home directory. Mine is under /home/matthew/.mozilla-thunderbird/u0qw7nxy.default/Mail/Local Folders - you may want to go into your file manager, set it to show hidden files and navigate through the folders till you find the file. It's one file named Inbox, and there's another one called Inbox.msf - if you put them on a flash drive and transfer them to the equivalent folder on your other machine I think that should do the trick.
