The individual mail "folders" are all in mbox(5) format

Having said that, you can restore lost mail by shutting down
Mozilla, copying files from your backup into the portion of
the .mozilla tree that holds your mail (taking care to
*NOT* overwrite any existing files), and then moving files
around as you see fit.

I stored mail boxes to a CD, thinking it would be easy to read that old mail directly; but it was not possible, because mbox files are opened in R/W mode. Pity mozilla etc can't be convinced to open them in RO mode if needed.
