"master password doesn't work on 3 version w/Win7/home"
great idea to have mail on hard drive, except T-bird is still
hard to back up and there's a war between Windows Live mail and
T-bird for control of .eml format. Why has mail become so hard to
back up? Worked well synching with two IMAP gmail accounts, but not when tried to add third POP hotmail.
Master password DOES NOT work on Version 3. set up two gmail accounts
to use master password. Your Thunderbird installation on your hard
drive is not password protected. Just hit cancel every time version
3-latest asks for password and you can still get right into your
Thunderbird installation and any part of what's stored on it, inbox, sent mail, etc., etc. Why go through the exercise of having
mail copies you can't protect on your hard drive? I uninstalled
with Revo and found over a gigabyte of stuff not removed under users/my user name/appdata/roaming after thorough uninstall.
Not a good experience at all for six days of effort.
Don't use master password on latest version or your hard disk installation of your email is not really protected from anyone's view I don't believe.latest version of Thunderbird is 12. Don't use master password.

Anyone can access your email on your hard drive if you do. Maybe
individual passwords would work; I don't know because I just plain uninstalled program at that point.
