Would not it be easier to add the new account in Outlook (which is IMAP) and move all your mails to her? Later you add the gContactSync complement and transgress your contacts.

I have always moved through Thunderbird dragged and pasting, but it is not always possible, this is a solution that we work in order to account even when others may fail.
