Perhaps something as easy as a menu item or button in the Profile Manager that says "Migrate this profile to another computer", then pack up all the profile's files into one file (zip?). Then, on the "receiving" computer, an option to "Bring in a profile from another comupter" that will read the migration file, unpack the files inside it, and fix any absolute paths so everything just works. This would be especially handy for folks who keep their email in local folders. I could have really used this feature today, helping an old lady get her new computer all set up -- paths were wrong, settings were goofed, and when manually making changes, I kept forgetting to escape the backslashes. There has to be a better way! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
