I am using 2 computers: 1 personal laptop (Linux) and 1 work desktop (WinXP). I use Thunderbird on both computers to fetch email from my GMail account. I haven't been using this email client for very long but I was expecting that when I read an email from my work desktop, it would automatically sync (or update) the email on my personal laptop from "unread" to "read".
What happens is that I read an email from my work desktop and when I get home I open my personal laptop, the email I read from the office is still unread at home. I was expecting that IMAP will sync the status of the message (read,unread) once I read an email from either one of my Thunderbird instances.
How do I set it up so that its behavior will be as I want above.
