    1111== How to move Virtual Identity Configuration from one computer to another (Import/Export or sync)? ==
    12 Please use the options which will be part of the to-be released 0.6.9/0.7 to export or import any configuration files.
     12Please use the options which will be part of the to-be released 0.6.9/0.7 to export or import any configuration files. Export does nothing except copying the virtualIdentity.rdf file to another place. Therefore you can use any virtualIdentitiy.rdf from any old profiles-directory and simply import it.

    1414If you like to do the changes by hand, check the following description:

    16 In the [wiki:docRdf0.0.1 Storage RDF reference] (even if it's not up-to-date) you can find some related information. Just copy the virtualIdentity.rdf from one profile to another and it should work.
     16In the [wiki:docRdf0.0.5 Storage RDF reference] you can find some related information. Just copy the virtualIdentity.rdf from one profile to another and it should work.

    1818The only remaining problem is that stored virtual Identities probably contain information about the base identity (on which to build upon a new identity) and an SMTP server. Both informations are coded the same way Thunderbird used to do it, so they are named by keys, like id2 or smtp2. If those keys don't match on different computers the relation will be wrong. You can check and adapt those id's in the prefs.js file, but take care. You might break your mail account settings if you make it wrong there.
