GMail + Thunderbird = Goodness
My official email (dims AT wso2.com) is forwarded to a new GMail account that i created explicitly for this email. My Thunderbird uses POP3 and SMTP to the gmail servers to send and receive email. The GMail is primarily for searching (and backup). i can read my email either via GMail or using Thunderbird. I like thunderbird because i can read my emails offline. When i send an email from Thunderbird, it automatically gets added to "Sent Items" in gmail as well. Only catch so far, if i send an email from GMail user interface it does not get into my Sent folder on Thunderbird. Only way around it is to CC myself so that i have a copy of that message reach my hard disk via thunderbird. So what did i do with all the email for the last 3 months is on my hard disk? I used GML to upload it. Thanks Mark. What's not to like about this setup?
PS: Anyone have a better suggestion for this kind of setup?
