I have Thunderbird up and running on a Windows 10 32bit PC, wiith email storage on a seperate partition (E:\thunderbird\...), all OK.

I've just assembled a new PC running Windows 10 64 bit, can some body point me in the right direction so I can transfer my emails, address book etc.?

Thanks in advance.

The OS version (32bit vs 64bit) has no impact on your requirements. The same version of Thunderbird will run under either version. See this article for migrating your data: ... hunderbird
For a concise, less detailed version of the process, see this thread --

For an alternative approach, see tanstaafl's posts in this thread -- viewtopic.php?f=39&t=2942915&p=14209121#p14209121
