There are many (old and not so old) topics about this, but they all deal with synchronizing the whole Thunderbird profile across computers.
I am not interested in that, I just want a nice way to synchronize or export only the (accounts) configuration. (all of my accounts are IMAP based, and I can redownload emails from the server without hassles.)
Please, don't tell me to synchronize the whole profile folder. It is 3.65GB, and I just want to recover my accounts config. Information-wise it should only be a few KBs.
Answers related to this question but which do not answer it
- How do I sync Thunderbird across two computers?
- Is there a simple way to synchronize Thunderbird across machines?
Actually there is an answer in the question "Merge/synchronize two Thunderbird installations" which mentions prefs.js but it isn't clear, and the answerer himself says, "it may even be longer than to re-enter all settings manually.
