I installed the latest version of Thunderbird Portable on a Sony 4Gb memory stick. I set up my gmail IMAP account no problems. I connected to the internet on my W2K home machine and read/deleted etc my email fine. I then synced the mail (and Newsgroup messages) for offline reading and took the USB stick to work. On my work Windows XP, when I launch Thunderbird Portable, the account is there but no email/IMAP folders are visible. (i.e. only the Inbox folder is listed on the account and it is empty)
I checked the following.
- IMAP folder files are in imap.googlemail.com folder under data on the USB stick
- Account settings points to the correct folder
- News groups are visible in Thunderbird portable (so the sync work partially at least)
What am I doing wrong?
