    Thunderbird profiles in Dropbox

    I have;
    Notebook xp
    Laptop windows 7
    PC xp

    I use Thunderbird as an email client on all of them.

    Do you think, for all above machines if I heave one Profile in Dropbox they will sync themselves?
    Thank you in advance...I hope I made myself clear!

    Dropbox will sync the files, but the profile data and possibly the meta data is stored elsewhere. This probably means manually re-indexing the mailbox after a Dropbox sync. Personally I would set the profile to leave the messages on the server for 1 month and then both clients will sync up to 1 months data.

    cheers, Paul

    Try the same question in the forum. I've been curious about it myself.

    Use 1 XP & 1 Win 7 machines in Christian non-profit where I am a retired volunteer; Windows 7 on home machine.

    I usually use a portable version of Thunderbird and it works great. You could keep one of those in the dropbox and use it on any machine with the same dropbox. Even a complete suite of Portableapps.
