Re: Thunderbird migration

Appreciate the help... I don't know what I did wrong, but I pretty much gave up on it. It's not like I lost anything that's not current in my emails, since changing everything to IMAP. But I appreciate the advice....

Re: Linux Mint Cinammon/Win 10 dual boot

Hi y'all, wow I didn't realise how old my post was, thanks for the replies.... I never did really look into it. There's something really funky going on with the BIOS/UEFI.

Re: Thunderbird migration

Everytime I start Thunderbird, it seems to overwrite everything and wipe it and make it a 'clean' new thunderbird user folder. I've tried renaming it to the default folder name, I've kept the old profile name and pointe...

Linux Mint Cinammon/Win 10 dual boot

New here. Total Linux newbie. I'm doing a complete backup atm of Windows 10, and am going to do a clean install with the Win10 .ISO, then try Mint alongside. I upgraded from Win 8.1/8/7, so Windows is supposed to reauthenticate itself even on a clean install, no key needed. We'll see. Being a Win7 p...
