If the new PC is blank or the old installation does not be preserved I am usually using zip -r -S with the whole mozilla dir in roaming. If SeaMonkey has already been installed just delete the complete roaming\mozilla dir on the new pc before unpacking. Same with roaming\Thunderbird.

I had to give up on my on my old laptop (Lenovo piece of ...) and got a new one.  I want to move all my newsgroup files to the new machine. Oddly enough when I search on doing this I find info on moving Thunderbird.  They say to use Mozbackup.  Will that work with Seamonkey?

Otherwise they talk about copying the profile folder contents. Should that work ok with Seamonkey?

YES

I should copy what's inside this directory:"
C:\Users\tit_p\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\Profiles\ey8r9gln.default\

Or you copy
C:\Users\tit_p\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\

note "tit-p" is my user-account-name.

In addition to "tit-p" isn't "ey8r9gln"  user unique?
Yes, that's correct.Except that's not user unique but the default "profile-unique" You should copy after or 2 levels before because this strange string is present in the text of the profiles.ini file located in the SeaMonkey directory
like this:  Path=Profiles/ey8r9gln.default

Thank you. I am surprized that this sort of backup of profile tool is not in the suite.
