Thread: Creating and moving a new profile

  1. Creating and moving a new profile

    I'm trying to check out a folder from an archived e-mail file for a
    reported virus. So I created a new profile and moved it to an Iomega
    floppy. I tried to follow Irwin's well written documentation on
    _TB-Managing Profiles_ but get lost with a couple of items. I want to
    save the replies for future reference so should I post this in secnews so
    nothing gets clipped?

    I use to flag the NG messages in Thunderbird I want to keep as
    reference, then use File > Offline > Get Flagged Messages every once in
    a while, so I have them archived locally.

    Unfortunately TB doesn't handle the offline messages the way I'd like,
    so acting correctly is required to not erase them inadvertently.
