> Hi All,
> I use Kontact and it's associated programs as my Personal Information Manager. I've gotten into the situation where I have to boot into Window$ for about half of my day. For mail on this alternative OS I'm using Thunderbird. If I send a mail on one OS, then boot into the other and get one back, then Reply from the current OS you can see how I lose my conversation trail. I also don't have access to my calendar, notes, Journal etc..
> Is there an alternative PIM suite for window$ (preferably using Thunderbird for mail but that's optional) which will allow me to share the resources from my Linux setup if I store them on a shared partition. Has anyone any experience with this? I could try a series of Hacks from around the net but I'd prefer an all round solution.
from the above, I assume you are using POP3 for the email. Try using IMAP instead?
Also, you can use IMAP to store calendar details.
