Linux is a great alternative to Windows, but many people feel they don't want to abandon Windows completely. This newly written tutorial will show you how you can share your local mail storage between the two operating systems on a dual boot computer."

I am one of the 'increasing number of people' who dual boot, and already used Thunderbird as my mail client in both Windows and Linux. We use an IMAP mail server, so mail changes etc. live on the server and can be seen from any client / machine. But the whole thing is made soooo much better by being able to have a single datastore: hopefully this will result in only having to train one spam checker for example...

Anyhow - in case you are wondering, the instructions worked perfectly for me. Took only a few minutes too!
