Talk:Thunderbird : FAQs : Backing Up and Restoring

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

Is there a bug for backup functionality inside Thunderbird? There really should be some sort of backup that encompasses roughly the same information as the backup feature in MS Outlook. Extensions are all well and good, but this should be a built-in feature. -Waldo

If the merge has missed anything, add it to Profile backup (see history for past versions of the page). I'm merging since it's useless to have a separate page for just Thunderbird, when all the information applies to Firefox and Mozilla Suite too. --hao2lian
