In lupu 525 I've installed thunderbird 3.1 from quickpet 4.5

1/ Where does ThunderBird store emails?

2/ I've an hotmail account, with many folders, so far I only have a copy of Inbox.
How to get the others?

Well, it's there but no folders

Thanks.

I believe that it creates a folder .thunderbird in root (/root/.thunderbird) -- note the DOT before thunderbird. You'll need to show all files to see it.

Then you dig into the folder, and eventually should find your email buried underneath.

>/root/.thunderbird
Thanks, indeed as hidden directory
Possible to move it to another directory, other media?

You can drag it out -- I like to dump mine on /mnt/home/, and rename it something visible, perhaps "email" or "mail" or "thunderbird" -- and then drag that folder back into /root/, and when prompted create a symbolic link (I think that I use an "absolute" -- don't precisely know what the difference is).

Next, rename your symbolic link to ".thunderbird" (note the "dot").

Now Puppy thinks it is located in /root/, but it physically lies elsewhere.

Regarding Hotmail -- I don't know what they use, or if you can "pop" your mail.

I can guess a tedious method -- if you can "pop", you could move the contents of a Hotmail folder into the now empty "inbox", and pop it down to your local inbox. Note that you should first emply your local inbox (move all the emails to a new folder), then pop the Hotmail, move it to the correct folder, and repeat for each Hotmail folder... At the end, you've pulled all your mail, and just need to move the local inbox data back to inbox.
