As far as I know, there is no native sync feature for the Mozilla Thunderbird email program. So what are some ways to achieve syncing emails, folder structure, and contacts between say a desktop office computer and a laptop?
Some thoughts and questions:
- If using IMAP for email accounts, will the emails and folder structures at least (and maybe contacts?) be synced between Thunderbird installations on different computers?
- Should the Thunderbird installation on the second computer be set up from scratch, or is it ok to copy over the Profile folder from the first computer?
- What about using a file sync program like SyncThing to keep the Thunderbird Profile folders on both computers in sync? Is this ok and a good idea, or could it cause consistency and collision issues?
Surely this is a common use case, so I wonder what solutions others have tried and what are the pitfalls to avoid.
