Thunderbird Mail Importing to ThunderBird

Le's say that your OS has crashed and you are lucky that you have backed up your mails and all of mail client settings. Indeed, your mail client is Mozilla Thunderbird.

Now, you install a new OS and want to import old mails and settings to the newly installed fresh Thunderbird. How?
  • Open thunderbird and close it
  • Go to /home_folder/.thunderbird
  • Remove already exist *.default profile folder
  • Add your back-up *.default profile folder
  • Update profile.ini file to show your new profile folder
  • Update prefs.js content in your profile folder
  • Open Thunderbird again
