Slightly OT, I know, but since this discussion is pretty close to what I want to know I thought I'd give it a go.

If I have an old profile of Mozilla saved on a CD, how do I go about getting my old e-mails back into Mozilla after reinstalling Windows (and formatting the HD)? If I remember correctly from my last attempt to do this, it isn't possible to just replace the MBOX files in the new profile with the old ones. Has anyone tried this before me? (Surely someone must've 8-|)
