Is there a way to take the many email messages I have saved in Seamonkey

um, what?
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 these files
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
Thanks for the advice, but, I guess I don't know the proper terminology to phrase my question properly. In fact, my word processor files and my spreadsheets are located where I can find them 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.
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??

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.
