IMAP Client (Thurderbird) with Google Apps/Gmail Not in Sync

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?

Did you read this articles before

https://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/imap-synchronization

Optional article since you 've already switch from POP3 to IMP , but just cross-check
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/3-ways-to-sync-thunderbird-emails-across-multiple-computers/


Before answering your qesution,

Could you  open the Synchronization and Storage page in the Account Settings dialog (Tools | Account Settings...), and  look at
Message Synchronzing in which there a check box at keep message for this account on this computer ?

Is it checked or un-checked on both computer and notebook ?

Hope understand your question completely, if not , please point it out.

Thanks Duncan

I have read all this and made sure the sync settings in Thunderbird are correct.
I believe the problem is because I keep Thunderbird open on both computers sometimes.
