The Profile Manager tells me that I have two profiles, namely
"default" and "test" (which I once created solely for testing). Using
Windows Explorer, however, I find that my "main" profile, the one
containing all my e-mail etc., is called "Charley". I cannnot recall
that I created it, and - as said - the Profile Manager apparently
doesn't know about it either!
When I start SeaMonkey, "default" is apparently used, and works. I am
a bit confused, and grateful for any help.
The 'profile' is really only a short cut. The ACTUAL location of your
emails will be identified by checking which directory your email
accounts are using in 'Mail and Newsgroup account setting'. I normally
change that location to the real location of my email and newsgroup
history. Things like your bookmarks will still be in the 'default'
profile. I tend to just copy that over the top of a new one created in
the new machine.
I am afraid I don't quite understand. I have found the actual location,
now where should I change it?
Sorry if I am very stupid!
