Is your Thunderbird profile stored on your C: drive in the default location for Thunderbird or have you moved it to another drive or to a network drive?

Our importer is known to fail if the source profile is located on a drive other than the C: drive.

I'm having the same issue with SeaMonkey 2.1. Also, My mail is on the C: drive with everything else.

if you start seamonkey with the -migration command line switch, this will cause SeaMonkey to run through the migration process again. You also need to specify the SeaMonkey profile to import into.
e.g.
seamonkey.exe -p profilename -migration

The select only mail/news.
