Restoring Backups?

Hi there and thanks for your hard work.

I discovered TEBE whilst trying to find a solution for exporting mail from TB3, and have been trying to find a solution for syncing TB mail across a number of computers for a while now. In one article it suggested TEBE can be used for synchronizing via Box.net - could you tell me how this is done please?

Also if I restore a backup of "mailmessages{default}" via another PC, will it overwrite the existing mail there?

Lastly, is there an FAQ for TEBE?

Many thanks.

Oaken

TEBE is a Thunderbird port of the Firefox FEBE extension. Both work very similarly. While TEBE nor FEBE will automatically sync your data, each can automatically upload backups to Box.net. These backups can easily be restored through the Restore (from online backup) feature in the TEBE/FEBE menu.

The restores are destructive in the sense that they will overwrite existing data.

The FEBE FAQ and Backup Tutorial may answer more of your questions.
