Problem transferring Thunderbird from XP to Windows 7

Text:

I have Thunderbird on my Windows XP machine & on my Macbook Air, all connected to my gmail IMAP account. Both work perfectly in sync. I have now upgraded another PC to Windows 7, installed Thunderbird, copied my profile across,but it won't bring in my emails from the gmail account. All the settings copied across OK and are the same as on my other two computers. Is there something obvious I haven't done, maybe?
