If you are dual booter like me (Ubuntu & WinXP), there are a good news that you can read/store your email with your Thunderbird in a single location. On top of that, you can also share your RSS feed between both OS.
First you need to identify where you want store those data. In my case, I put it in my H drive which is in FAT32.
Then you need to know where your drive H mount point in Ubuntu. In this case, it is in /media/sda9
The important configuration file for thunderbird is profiles.ini. This is where you will key in your file location details.
In Win XP, the file can be located in :
C:\Documents and Settings\[your profile here]\Application Data\Thunderbird\profiles.ini
/home/[your profile here]/.mozilla-thunderbird/profiles.ini
Your profiles.ini file should look something like this in ubuntu:
In your WinXP:
Once you have done with the configuration file, the last step is to move you existing data the new folder.
In my case, i have move everything in my /home/arejae/.mozilla-thunderbird/u3whnpeg.default to H:\MailBox folder.
That’s all. Now you can read your email and your favourite RSS feed whether you are in WinXP or Ubuntu.
