I want to give all emails of an account to somebody else. (He will take over the job of secretary of the club). I can copy the files from my profile, but he will use another email address (both name and provider). Can somebody give a working suggestion? Thanks, Paul

If you simply give copies of message files to the new secretary it won't matter what email address that person is using.
How is the account set up, as POP or IMAP?
In Thunderbird the menu path is Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings->Server Type at the top right of the dialogue.

Thanks. I am using IMAP. I will ask my friend how he is getting emails in his TB installation. Since he has made a new account I assume that it is easily modified to IMAP when needed.

Will you continue to use the same email account as you did in the past? That is, was that a personal account or one specifically for the club?
