    How do you transfer a thunderbird address book from one computer to another computer via email, I tried the steps on this site by popowich but I get to the last step and the LDIF file will not come up

    Thunderbird will not automatically look for the LDIF file. The addresses are on the new thunderbird email account but didn'[t traqnsfer correctly. I will try the zip and unzip but I think the problem is my new account is Windows 8 and based on research Windows 8 will not work using this method.

    What file types does your Windows 8 think are valid?
