Re: Saving Tbird e-mail files? -




  o Using gmail - with imap - leaves the mail on gmail server.
          gmail with pop - removes the mail from gmail and stores
wherever you told your mail client to store it - once you've done this -
unless you store it on your own imap server then no other client will be
able to see that pop mail.

  o so you should leave gmail accounts all set to imap - unless you want
to pull the mail off gmail and store it.


  o your dovecot server is just like any other mail server - just set up
a new IMAP account - use IP or (or hostname if your computers can see
the host name).


 o each mail client you set up should have

     gmail imap
     your own imap

as accounts.

Then to move or copy mail just use mouse to drag or copy message(s) from
gmail to your own imap account.
