If your messages are in "Mail/Local Folders", you should be able to copy
all the folders you want from your profile on your old computer to your
profile on your new computer and everything should just work. You should
also copy all the .msf (index) and .sbd (subfolders) files and folders.
Each Thunderbird "folder" is an mbox-format file with a .msf index file,
and subfolders are stored in a .sbd directory. Index files can be
regenerated if damaged but it is easiest to just copy them (and this
will preserve your replied/forwarded flags).
