       and you have how many computers ???

       Just wondering, when do you have time for other things? - as eating,
sleeping, or conversing with others - as friends & family;
           and when do you tend to various jobs; both work & hobbies ???

I make sure the message filter checks if the email address is in any of
the options stated above.  It really works, except when someone sends the
reply to the list and to me directly.  At that point I get both messages in
the LibreOffice folder based on which list it is part of - i.e. this list
is in the "LibreO - Users Global" folder and the website list uses "LibreO
- Website" folder.

I have been using Thunderbird for many years.  The only problem I have is
I cannot save the message filters.  When I have a system crash [when using
Windows] and had to reinstall Windows, I had no ability to reload the
message filters as I can with the saved emails and address-book.  When I
went from Windows to Ubuntu for my default system, I had to rebuild the
Message Filtering that had several years of "growth" that I had to rebuild
from scratch.

I currently read my emails from only one computer - my Ubuntu 10.04
desktop.  If I need to deal with emails on a different computer, I use my
domain/email hosting system's web-mail system.  Since I use the Ubuntu
desktop, a Dell laptop running Ubuntu 12.04/MATE and Vista, HP laptop
running XP/pro, an Android tablet, a Ubuntu 10.04 desktop attached to my
HD-TV set for the types of Internet audio/video that my Blu-ray player
cannot do, and a few more desktops running Ubuntu or XP that are spares or
will be given to others who need them and cannot afford to buy one

With this mix of system being used for various tasks, I would have a mess
if I tried to read emails on more than one system, even if I could get a
sync system to work properly between the various Windows and Ubuntu systems.

I currently use a 1 TB and a 2 TB USB external hard drive[s] for backing
up my main Ubuntu desktop [it has the two drives - 1 TB and 2 TB -
installed].  Then I can use these external drives to play AVI and MPG/MP4
files on my TV via the Blu-ray player or listen to audio books with the
ability to deal with the volume and play/pause controls of the Blu-ray
player and not having to get up out of my comfy chair to do so with my
computer.  The down side of this is the USB drives must be Windows
formatted and it takes a long time to defrag/optimize the 2 TB drive. With
324 GB free space on that drive, it has been over 26 hours running the
Auslogics Disk Defrag software on a Dell laptop - Pentium Dual core CPU
T3200 @ 2.00 GHz, 32-bit Vista, with 3 GB of RAM.

I must keep the drives formatted to Windows systems so the Windows
computers and the Blu-ray player can access them.  But that is a small
price to pay for having all my media and data file accessible to all my
computers and media players that can use an external USB drive.  It is much
better than having to load up a 32 GB microSD flash card, and use a USB
card reader, to share the file[s] between devices.  Much slower as well.
