Hello everyone,

I have ubuntu 11.10 (64 bit) and I am using Thunderbird as my default email client. I have a windows network drive mapped on my Ubuntu and I would like to change Thunderbird's local folders location to that windows network drive.

I tried to follow this tutorial, http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_mail_storage_location_%28Thunderbird%2 9 , but it is not working for me.

For some reason, the browse to location doesnt give me an option to browse to the windows network drive. And if I manually enter the location, it doesnt accept it.

Did anyone ever try to do that? Is it possible? If yes, how?

As usual, many thanks in advance!
