Hello, is there any way to sync settings/accounts etc with another computers? Have 2x work computers, 2x home computers and if I change something in thunderbird, it's really annoying to make changes in other computers too.

Any way to sync that please? Using latest thunderbird version.

The problem is that each copy of Thunderbird runs alone, unaware of the existence of the other copies. You could try setting up a global profile on a virtual drive that all versions access, but I have no idea how stable that would be.

Hm. So I can use syncthing for that right? And sync whole profile folder between computers.

I did not mean to offer a solution. Conceptually, a virtual drive would be a possibility, and Windows does support that capability. Having more than one PC connected at the same time could be disastrous though.
