Help - Thunderbird does not open my mail

I just downloaded thunderbird portable , we are taking a trip tomorrow and I though this would be fabulous , seeing as I already use Thunderbird ... I copied all of my mail over and have used it all afternoon ... Tried moving it to a couple of different computers and it worked great ... I figured I would try it on a different service provider - When I started it -- It ask me to set up my account ... I don't know if I unplugged it to early last time .. I used it - But now it does not work on my original computer .. Please help ..

Found It

Had a problem with the prefs.js file -- Now how do I make frequent back ups ?

Backups ?

Make a copy of:
[x]:\YourPath\ThunderbirdPortable\Data\profile
and zip it to profile.zip

If you have any problems, unzip the directory back.
How often you back it up is up to you.

If traveling and having a lot of mail and very concerned, every couple of days should do it.

Have a good trip Smile
