Daniel, thanks for your patience and clarity of explanation. I got it!
It is exactly what I wanted but didn't know the proper terminology to
phrase the question.
Now all I have to do is to copy those files onto my external hard drive
and I'm relatively safe in case of a crash.

and, if necessary, transfer them to another computer.
I don't know how to find my Seamonkey email files. If I can find
them, I'd like to be able to back them up on an external hard drive.
So, what I'm asking is how to find the Seamonkey email files and
transfer them in a Word or PDF format to an external hard drive.

Is there a way to take the many email messages I have saved in
and get them out of Seamonkey and into my regular files?
All emails are in fact stored in a file (one file per folder (one
for inbox, one for drafts, one for templates etc...)). Feel free to
copy them or whatever you like.
As you didn't specify any version/OS, noone will be able to tell you
where to have a look, so good luck ;-P
If I am reading your request correctly
I set up a second account set to a unknown server x.x.x and set its
default file location to a location like C:\docs\Mozilla where I keep
emails can be filtered to that account or you can manually move them
Your second option is move the default file location out of its
location to where ever you want
hope this helps
I hope I said it this time.
O.K., Serge, try this!
There are two parts to a SeaMonkey set-up, the first is where the
Program is installed and the second is where the profile is stored. If
you un-install SeaMonkey, all you are doing is emptying the program
location, the profile remains untouched, but, what I'm guessing is you
want to know where the profile is!
With-in SeaMonkey, have a look at Edit->Mail&Newsgroup Account Settings
and select your Mail account. On the bottom line of the Server Setting
screen, you should find the Local Directory....this is where your
profile is stored. Use your Windows Explorer to go there (you may have
to un-hide it first!!) and you should find a folder like fhuye376n.slt.
This .slt folder holds your profile with your incoming messages in the
inbox folder (inbox.msf is just an indexing file and can be deleted
without any great consequences!), your outgoing messages are in the sent
folder (sent.msf is just an indexing...........!).
Is this the information you are after??
