What does 'Tools|Import' bring up? That should bring up the import

the profile not by guessing the location to the default one.
I always have my profile on a D: drive and the migration found it, too.

import several profiles like that)
Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\SeaMonkey.
In my installation, all of the data from SM1 was copied to this new
profile location on the C: partition. Since I wasn't prepared for
this, my C: partition ran out of room part way through the
installation. A lot of what should have been transferred was not. No
doubt this has caused many of the other problems I have been having
getting this going. I had to do a repair installation of Windows XP
and re-partition my C partition to add about 4 GB to accommodate SM2
and all of the email imported from my F: partition.
If I can't get SM2 to recognize
Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\SeaMonkey
on another partition, I doubt that I will ever use SM2. As a general
rule, I don't like to put anything on the C: partition except the OS
and it doesn't look like SM2 will let me do that.
Please, anybody, correct me if I am wrong.
Arne, I'm guessing that if YOU want YOUR profile where YOU want it, YOU
will have to do a custom installation each time YOU upgrade.
I've (almost) always had my profile where I wanted it, so did Custom
Further research shows a way of moving the profile to another location.
It is included in http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder
under the heading of "Modify profiles.ini to point to the new location -
Advanced. - Firefox Thunderbird and SeaMonkey 2"
So it appears that there is a workaround to get the files where I want
them. Presumably, the profile folder is installed on the C: partition on
the initial install no matter what you say in the "Custom" install
dialogue. After that, you can use the above instructions to move the
profile to another partition. I have not tried it yet.
