Is it possible to sync Firefox/Thunderbird/Lightning (28.0/24.4.0/?) between a desktop (Windows 8.1) and a laptop (Windows 7)? I want to be able to make an email change on one computer and the change is applied to the other computer within a second or two. What do I do next to achieve my goal?

Thank you.

Thunderbird 38.0.1 Windows 7.1 Click on "Write". Contacts side bar opens with "All Address Books" as default. It used to default to the LAST USED Address Book. [I've only noticed this new behavior in the last few days.] No matter which address book I select, Write now always opens with "All Address Books". ["All Address Books" displays a combined list of ALL the contacts in ALL the address books]. How do it get it to default to the 'last used' address book please?

For the past week I cannot send email. I receive email fine but when I try to send I get this message: An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.1 Authentication Required. Please verify that your email address is correct in your Mail preferences and try again."

I do not know where Mail Preferences is--I have looked for it. Please help or I will need to get another email platform since being able to send is as important as receiving.

Thank you.

All of the read messages in my inbox suddenly disappeared. I didn't do anything to purposely do this. I searched for a recent read message and it was located showing the location of inbox. I changed the status to unread and it then appeared in the inbox. When I read new messages they change to read messages and stay displayed in the inbox as read but no old messages are displayed. So all of those old read messages are still available, so how do I get them displayed? Thanks Jerry

This may sound stupid but I am unable to reverse my accidental "ignore thread" on a number of my emails. It doesn't allow me to undo it and now all my emails from clients have disappeared and I'm incapable of finding them. All I want is for every email that comes in, to be at the top of the list, is there another way of reversing the process?

My current email system no longer allows me to click on a bunch of emails - and their attachments, then 'print' them to pdf on my hard drive.

My business must save emails for at least 10 years.

Someone suggested Mozilla's email, Thunderbird, but I'm not gonna switch until I know that I can batch-archive.

Thoughts?
