Default What is the hard drive location for thunderbird emails?

I am going to attempt to copy my emails from another hard drive that crashed in an attempt to restore all of the emails I had.

I am using windows xp professional with Mozilla Thunderbird as my email program. I am looking for an exact location of the email folders/info on the hard drive eg.... c:\program files\mozilla\ etc

You should just go to docs and settings and then goto application data under you username then click on thunderbird, just copy your whole profile, that is the easiest way because it will not only copy ur email but also ur settings. Then on the new computer open thunderbird one time, when it says create an email cancle out of it then go to the smae location as thunderbird was on ur old computer (unless ur xp username changed, then go the that username app data, then copy ur profile into the one windows created.) I do it all the time at work trust me it works, sometimes parent. lock makes it so it wont copy so just move all the files except for that one
