All Thunderbird e-mail client profiles and data will be stored to a backup file. Select a new backup filename using the "Save As" button, then click the "Backup Now" button to start. Please note that you need to close Thunderbird before performing backup.

So that you can protect your e-mail messages and all your other personal information, this software provides an encryption function. Before you perform a backup, you can set up an encryption password, so the resulting backup file will be encrypted.

Accordingly, when restoring your encrypted backup files, you will need to provide the correct password.
