Using two email clients

Can one use Thunderbird and WLM together on one laptop and both with the same email address?
Running windows 7

Thanks.

Yes, of course you can. With IMAP mail protocol both are always synced for the messages are stored on server and only copied locally; deleting a message on server deletes it on both clients next time they are connected.

Be careful with POP3 mail protocol, remember to select "Leave messages on server when read" when setting up the POP3 email on clients as most clients do delete the read messages on server by default. In your case this would mean that when you have read the messages with client 1 and later would like to read messages with client 2, they are no longer there.

I really do not see the point in using more than one client but it is possible.

Thanks for that.Just tried it and when I attempt to open a new email in WLM I get this box come on screen.
I thought that it was because the TB was also there as WLM.
Box here.
Thanks.

It's not a good idea to have both clients logged in at the same time, it is a quite sure way to disaster. If you must use two clients, use only one at the time.
