-There are several ways to synchronize the profiles for multiple machines:+
- +
-* Use the [http://synchingthunder.sourceforge.net/ Synching Thunder] application to synchronize the profiles.+
- +
-* Store the profile on a [[Running_from_a_USB_drive_%28Thunderbird%29 | USB drive (thumb drive)]] or on a network file share and literally use the same profile from multiple machines.+
- +
-* Use a IMAP account and store all of the messages in remote folders. You could use the [http://www.gargan.org/extensions/synckolab.html Synch Kolab] extension to synchronize your address books.+
- +
-* If you're using POP accounts configure tools -> account settings -> "leave messages on server" on all of the machines except one (your primary machine). On each secondary machine use tools -> account settings -> copies & folders -> "bcc these addresses" to send yourself a BCC of any messages you sent. On your primary machine write a message filter that moves those messages to your Sent folder and marks them as read.+
- +
-* Use a script or batch file like [http://gemal.dk/mozilla/profilesync.html 4NT] to synchronize the files in two profiles. This method is most likely to cause problems, especially if you forget to synchronize before doing something that modifies the profile.+
