I am running Seamonkey 1.1.17 on Win XP Home SP 2. I have set up a new
mail account (for my personal mail). I would like to transfer some
folders (with their messages ) from the original account to the new

going in the right direction.
To locate your profile, the Profile FAQ:
Information about the folders and files within the Profile folder:
Martin, you sent me on quite a learning journey with your references.
As they say on Star Trek, "[I've] gone where [I've] never gone before"
Unfortunately, this has now raised a number of questions that I didn't
have before (probably a good thing). I hope you or others can stay with
me to bring this to a conclusion.
1) What's the difference between a Profile and an Account? I have added
2 new accounts ("Work" & "Personal") as I've now moved to a new ISP with
wireless. I added these using Edit > Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings.
I didn't do anything regarding "profiles". Is there more for me to do?
2) I have located 2 profile folders : Profile\default\f68gg1hi.slt and
the first one has 6 folders: Pop1.sympatico.ca, Pop1.sympatico-1.ca,
kingston.net, kingston-1.net, kingston-2.net and Local Folders.
I found that Pop1.sympatico.ca refers to my original account and
Pop1.sympatico-1.ca refers to my "Work" account and kingston-2.net
refers to my "Personal" account.
I don't know what the remaining 3 folders are for (kingston.net,
kingston-1.net, Local Folders). I am particularly confused why one of
the new accounts (Work) is named with "Sympatico" (my original account
name), when there is no reference to Sympatico in the Account Settings.
Have I done something wrong even though the accounts seem to be working
3) As I want to transfer only specific folders and their sub-folders to
the 2 new accounts, do I just Select & Cut the folders & files (not
.msf) in Pop1.sympatico.ca and Paste them to either Pop1.sympatico-1.ca
I hope you can make sense out of all this,
An old-timer trying to keep up.
