[ubuntu] How to get Thunderbird to find my mail

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My old computer crashed and we got a new one and installed Ubuntu 12.04. I restored my mail backup to .thunderbird and started it, but it tries to create a new profile. A new profile appeared in my .thunderbird directory. I edited the profiles.ini file to point to the old 'restored' profile, but it STILL refuses to come up with my existing email account. (Hardware)
