Any Thunderbird Mail Experts?

I've contacted an infection and plan to reinstall Ubuntu 8.1;
then reinstall the other software.

The one that might cause some pain is Thunderbird Mail.
It's version if that makes any difference.

Does anyone know precisely what's involved?  Apart from what seems the
obvious - saving and copying mailbox files?

One could easily copy all the files under .mozilla-thunderbird into the
same location of the new installation, and hope that completes the task,
but, is anything else required? Is there perhaps a config file somewhere 
that needs modification before the new Thunderbird installation will 
automatically adopt all those mailbox files?

Does anyone know all the facts?

Help much appreciated
