IOW I'm not migrate to a new computer, and I don't want to just replace everything on the computer to travel with the new files, I want to just the address book.

  • How can I set up two e-mail accounts with their own address book from Thunderbird?

    I have two people with a new office of 8.1 to win that they share. Everyone has their own email accounts. I installed Thunderbird on their old XP desktop, created their accounts and copied the profile of Thunderbird in the XP box to the new box of 8.1. Both accounts have been set up in Thunderbird, including the default accounts of Outlook Express WAB address book. The second individual had their own unique AddressBook in OE and wants its own address book (not a mailing list) when she wrote and email. In the Thunderbird AddressBook in the 8.1 box, I created a new address book for each of them. How import the WAB OE unique that I exported from OE in every address book unique individuals in Thunderbird?

    I don't know much about the WAB files, then try this:

    Now, that, if it works, allows to import address books.

    Your next question is multiple users.

    Thunderbird is designed around the assumption that, at any time unique, a BONE fide user is recorded in the computer and will have their own profile. Thus, each user has his own user account (in the operating system) and each will have its own personal records, including their profile of Thunderbird. Everyone will see only their own message box and their own address book.

    There is no support in Thunderbird to distinguish different users. It is based on the profile appropriate being on hand.

    If your two users don't mind seen each and other books addresses, then you can import them both. It won't be easy to stop one user to accidentally pull Contacts from the address book on the other.

    You have anticipated the situation by creating separate address books to the front. In practice, you will create new address books when you import CSV files. But you can leave it as it is and drag and drop Contacts from imported address books to where you want later.
