Address Book

I can’t remember names and numbers very well, so my Address Book is my lifeline. Clicking the Address Book icon or going to Tools | Address Book puts you in the address book, where you can manage your contacts in a number of ways. Preserving the data in this area may be important to you. At some point you may want to back up, import, or move your address book information to another location. Thunderbird’s address book allows you to import addresses from another location as well as export your addresses as an LDIF file.

Filenames for Default Address Books

Thunderbird contains two default address books. The filenames are abook.mab (Personal Address Book) and history.mab (Collected Addresses). It is possible to copy these files from one profile folder to another. If you happen to have been using either the Mozilla or Netscape mail clients, you can copy these files over to your Thunderbird profile and should be able to use them with no problem.
