I had to create a new user account. When I go to Thunderbird it wants me to set up an existing account. My original profile has 4 different accounts. How can I set up TB on in the new user account so that every mail account is there with all its messages etc?

Why not reuse your old profile and add another account to it using file -> new -> existing mail account?

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_p ... hunderbird for how to move a profile or http://kb.mozillazine.org/Move_to_a_new_PC if you're moving to a new PC.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager explains how to launch/use the profile manager (useful if you have more than one profile on a PC or want to create a empty one so that you can move a unknown profile by copying it over a known profile)
