Best way to go from T-bird reg. to Portable ...

I've been a Thunderbird user for a couple of years and really like it.
My question:
Now that I've downloaded and installed Thunderbird Portable to my S.D. card, is there a way to get everything shifted over from my regular Thunderbird program?

Doesn't appear that Thunderbird Portable imports from regular Thunderbird. Any chance I can move files from my C drive?

Can't tell you how thrilled I am to have my email program on a seperate/portable drive. Really, really cool.

Appreciate your help.

.

Copy everything inside C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Thunderbird\profiles\[random].default (it's a hidden folder, try enabling "Show hidden files" in "Tools » Folder Settings » Tools" in explorer) to E:\PortableApps\ThunderbirdPortable\Data\profile
