Moving SeaMonkey to a New Computer

Postby kiteman » Fri 30 Dec, 2011 8:31 am

Please accept my apologies for asking what seems to be a routine and straightforward question. I tried searching the forum, but could not seem to find an answer that fit.

I'm moving from an old machine using Windows XP to a new laptop using Windows 7. My wife uses (and likes) SM for both browsing and E-Mail. I installed SM on the new machine, but have not opened it yet.

What files (or folders) do I need to port over from the old machine to restore all her critical information such as E-Mail profile, messages and folders, address book and browser bookmarks?

If there are any step-by-step instructions that cover how to move SM between machines, the link to them would be great.

Thanks very much - again apologies, especially if I missed the answer in my search.

Thanks! Instructions worked fine. Up and running SM on new machine. People on this forum are very helpful!

Spoke too soon... Everything is there, but the ISP does not recognize the password. Is there a password file somewhere that I need to bring over to the new computer???

Called ISP Customer Service person. Confirmed login information. Password worked following the phone call, so I'm back in business.
