Talk:Combining mail from two profiles - SeaMonkey

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

Wintogreen, I think the page needed a rewite. I went ahead and did it, hope you don't mind. If anyone can do it better, go ahead, I won't mind ;) Alice 06:08, 19 September 2005 (PDT)

I'm thinking of redirecting this article to Transferring data to a new profile - Thunderbird , merging anything that adds value (such as some of the text in "Become familiar with the profile contents") to the other article, and changing the intro slightly to also deal with combining profiles. Any objections or concerns? Tanstaafl 12:25, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I have one big objection. It covers also Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey as well as Thunderbird. If you want to merge some of the information into the Thunderbird article, fine, but leave the article as is, or at the minimum, make it into a Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey article.

I did some minor editing of the article (added links explaining how to completely close, menu differences, added SeaMonkey, etc) and would like to rename this article, "Combining mail and address books from two profiles", if no one objects. That way it would make it clearer that the article does not apply to Firefox. Alice 21:26, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't have a problem with your renaming the article (or that name). However, I want to avoid confusion for Thunderbird users due to duplication. We already have Importing_folders and Moving_address_books_between_profiles , plus Transferring data to a new profile - Thunderbird (which has a wider scope). I removed all references to Thunderbird in this article and added it to the Mozilla Suite category. That seems the best compromise - it turns it into one for just Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey. I suggest you consider adding a "-Mozilla Suite" suffix when you rename it if you want to also keep it in the Profiles category, to avoid confusion. Tanstaafl 23:35, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
OK, I'll rename it "Combining mail from two profiles - SeaMonkey" to keep it a bit shorter and in line with the other -SeaMonkey articles. Alice 23:47, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
