Download Toucan from this site.

Set it up to backup your Thunderbird profile folder. It contains all your settings and mail.

Toucan is fine

but it is meant for advanced users. The easiest way is to either use the Backup tool if you use the menu or just copy it to a safe place.

physical copy or just bits and pieces?

I do a physical copy of the whole folder once a week. Thought I do it more often if I just made a huge addition to the addressbook.

There is a Toucan program folks use to back up files on a schedule.

I use the backup tool on the PAM to do my weekly backups to another remote server backup.

Don't be an uberPr∅. They are stinky.
