    Does Thunderbird simply use the exact same *dbx files as OE, or does it save
    the emails to a different location?

    Thunderbird uses the universal Mbox mail file format and NOT dbx. (Only OE
    uses dbx - Mbox format can be read by most other mail clients and can
    actually be read by a word processor!)
    If you are using Windows XP then the location is C:\Documents and
    Settings\{your username}\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\{funny
    letters and numbers here}\Mail\
