I have been using Mailstore Home successfully for many years. I backup my files from several mail accounts locally from Thunderbird. I do this only manually about once a week. I am in the process of setting up a new computer that will become my main device, and I noticed a warning to not sync Mailstore Home directories via OneDrive or any program like that. I am wondering why that warning?
I use OneDrive primarily as a cloud backup for my files rather than keeping a lot of devices in sync. I have included the Mailstore Home directory for more than a year without any issues. If I could set OneDrive to only backup my Mailstore Home files to the cloud, but not sync the other way, I would do that – but that does not seem to be any option. I will only have Thunderbird active, and do my weekly Mailstore Home backups manually, from my primary device. The other computer (older one) I will keep updated as a backup device in case I need it when something happens to my main device. I could see value in using OneDrive to help me keep all my data directories in sync for when I need to use the backup.
Is this going to cause me any issues? I might be able to understand if I know why Mailstore Home recommends no syncing to the cloud. Thanks.
