i have a lot of e-mails which i stored in a file on my C drive that i would now like to get back into Thunderbird then back up the lot all in one place, i can open them from the folder in thunderbird then save them to a folder locally,but that will take a long time.is there a way to move them on mass back to thunderbird.

You don't say if the files you now want to include were originally created in Thunderbird. If so are they still in the original Thunderbird "Profile".

they were all created in thunderbird,and can be opened from the folder by thunderbird,i have recently done a clean install though i backed up the profile with mozbackup,they don't show,done some digging and i could import each folder,just wondered if it could be moved to the mail folder but not sure where that is?

I am not familiar with the use of MozBackup but if you have not read it already this http://kb.mozillazine.org/MozBackup may help.

Below is a link to MozBackup Support which might be useful:

MozBackup - Backup tool for Firefox and Thunderbird

Even though MozBackup is no longer being developed, the info given there will still be relevant.
