    Copy the "something.default" folder located in this directory
    C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles (on Vista that is)

    Then on the target PC edit the Profiles.ini in the same directory to point to your folder(which you can rename to "whateveryoulike.default" so you can tell them apart).

    This will also preserve all your emails and contacts.
