Build Identifier: Moz Thunderbird 3

Two Phase Enhancement Request:

I currently run 5 or 6 email names on 4 different systems, which are dedicated to certain uses. I often wind up having to change systems and forward email to put information in the right place.

A Common Repository (CR) for email could serve four purposes:
1. Synchronize multiple emails across multiple names/systems.
2. Provide a common backup site on a file/backup server so that email would not be lost on a system crash or software error.
3. A repository could accept current email files from existing software, Tbird at least, to create the initial setup.
4. Provide a combined set of names, addresses, etc on the file server, accessible from any connected system.

There are probably other uses for a email CR, even without considering possible small business opportunities.

Thanks for considering this request.

You need IMAP and an LDAP server... (both of which thunderbird supports, though writable ldap is not ready yet)

->INVALID, feel free to reopen (or file a new specific bug) if there is something of that those can't handle. IMAP mail is accessible from anywhere, stored (and can be backuped) on a central server. LDAP gives you a central address repository.
