    Hi

    I recently had to format and reinstall. I had been backing up but
    unfortunately the last backup also contained the fault that later caused
    the problem.

    Anyway I have a full system back up which will contain the addresses
    from thunderbird. I would like to get them into the new setup.

    Which file do I need from the backup and how do I then get it into the
    new installation?

    I've googled for this with no luck but you guys always seem to come up
    with the goods.

    Thanks in advance.

    you need two files, and they both end in *.mab [which equals
    to mozilla address book]. Copy them from the old profile to
    the new one, and do this with the program closed.
