Well I didn't get that impression when you said "I'm not sure you  
have to export first, so long as the remote files are mounted via  

Because exporting to fit the program is one issue, and using TDM via  
firewire is yet another issue, and one has nothing to do with the  
other actually..

There are email addresses and old mail to consider. In the old  
Netscape with the address book open, look for "Export" address book  
file. Then to get that into the new, look for "Import" and navigate  
to and choose that file (once you have transferred it). Some data  
might need adjusting but at least she will have the addresses.

As for old mail that is saved I am not sure how that would be done.
