    I am switching from Windows to Linux FC4.
    I use Thunderbird in windows and plan on using it in FC4.

    Can I use my profile from windows in FC4 or will I have to start fresh.
    If I can, how?

    Copy your Thunderbird profile directory from the Windows machine to your
    Thunderbird profile directory on the linux machine.

    I tried this, but Thunderbird will not recognise it. Asks to setup a new
    profile.
