How to move a profile in Thunderbird Email.

Though I don’t recommend this but sometimes we require to move Thunderbird profiles. Follow below steps to do that:

a) Shut down Thunderbird.

b) Move the profile folder to the desired location.

c) Open up the profiles.ini file in a text editor. you can find the file location in the application data folder for Thunderbird:

The path is %AppData%\Thunderbird\ for Windows.

d) In the profiles.ini file, locate the entry for the profile you’ve just moved. Change the Path= line to the new location.

If you switch from a relative path to a non-relative path, the direction of the slashes may need to change. For example, in Windows, non-relative paths use backslashes, whereas relative ones use forward slashes.

e)  Change IsRelative=1 to IsRelative=0.

f) Save profiles.ini and restart Thunderbird.
