I noticed a problem when a ~/.thunderbird directory exists ( for example switching from a thunderbird - write down my account settings while in the old version.
- mv ~/.thunderbird ~/.thunderbird.old
- run thunderbird 0.8
- re-add the accounts
- to retrive the old messages from local folders manually copy the Mail folders. For example:
cp -Rv ~/.thunderbird.old/*default*/Mail/"Local Folders" ~/.thunderbird/*default*/Mail
