IMAP Client (Thurderbird) with Google Apps/Gmail Not in Sync
Posted on 2013-11-28
I am using IMAP to access my Gmail (paid Google Apps) account.
I am using Thunderbird on the computer at the office and Thunderbird on the Notebook.
Sometimes I have Thunderbird open at the office while I use it on the notebook as well.
It seems that although I use IMAP, I end up with a different sync state at the two computers. For instance, I am moving a couple of emails into folders (Labels on Gmail) and it seems all fine. But when I get to the office, they are still at the Inbox.
It almost seems like Gmail remembers state per client. But it could be something else.
I never had these problems before using other IMAP servers.
Is there something I could do about that?
