Dear all, I used the proposed solution for a long-time without apparently big problems. I was able to work both in the Linux and Windows machines. Sometimes something appear strange, expecially after an upgrading on one machine only, but I was always able to recover all. I recently move my email account to Gmail and I hope to use IMAP protocol using thunderbird. On windows machine work like a charm but with Linux machine no. Apparently if I modify the configurations of the Gmail account in reality nothing is modified for the configuration because when I reopen the configuration I see the old configurations. Any idea about why? I' using on both the machines the most recent version Had any of you the same problem?

Thank you very much for the help. Ale
