I seek guidance from the wiser than I members of Epz

I use Mozilla Thunderbird as my email on my laptop and having now purchased a desktop can I

Run the same account on both PC and Lappy?

If so can I somehow import all my messages on Lappy to PC and run the mail concurrently on both?

Many Thanks in advance

Paul

You need to change your server type from POP to IMAP (if it is currently POP)
Then all email is stored on your server and folder structures etc so they can be synced between computers. It's all explained quite well here Syncing computers with thunderbird
I have this set up and also have access on my iPhone all changes made appear in all locations.

Don't do it!!!

At least not until, either:

A. You have to

or

B. It has been proven for at least a year.

Remember the Vista debacle.

Even '7' wasn't all plain sailing in its infancy.
A few people on here had problems with it.
In my case, the answer will be 'A' since I'm still (happily) using XP but can see the end in sight.
With regards to 'B,' I'll probably wait until about Christmas, when the worst of the bugs should have been ironed out but before the twenty five quid offer ends.

Just finished upgrading to 8 - really simple.
No problems so far and once you have pressed the desktop button it's almost exactly the same as Windows 7.

Upgrade Chris, or fresh installation?
And what are the chances of saving the download so that I can re-install it again if it goes t**s up at some point? (Which it probably will.)

Upgrade from 7 - its very slickly done.

It offers you the option to create the media during the install. So I think it should be OK - but I aint tried it

Ive just downloaded 8 pro and there is a driver missing on my usb 3 connections so Ive taken the option of leaving the update on my desktop...I can burn a disc also and boot it from that.

Any Worry Mongers should just download the upgrade assistant and follow it from thereWink

Microsoft have done a damn good job this time with leaving options open to the end userWink

Thanks Lawbert,
The missing driver is the kind of thing that I'd expected and is the kind of thing that's causing me to hold fire for the moment.
Thanks for the info. re. burning a disc to boot from though. If it works, then that's what I shall be wanting to do.
