synchronising mailing lists

Postby NM » Mon Aug 16, 2004 11:12 pm

I run poco on a main and a laptop computer. How can I synchronise the mailing lists?
I have a backup program that i can use.
Can I just copy one file from one computer to the other to achieve the synching?
If so which file is it?
Regards,
NickM

By "mailing list" do you mean the address book? If so, you can just copy the address books between poco installations. (They are generally stored in the "Address" directory, of all places.)

Sorry, yes I did mean address book.
So all I need to do is copy the "address.ini" file (only thing in the address file) between computers.
Does this file also contain the Groups

Yes and yes. Just copy it -- there's no special magic (other than making sure you are copying the newest version, of course.) And the groups are contained in the same file.

Hi NM, I'm not sure if PocoMail keeps the current address book in memory. If it does, you might have to close the target instance of PocoMail before you copy the file.

Good point, Pete. In general, that would be the right procedure, that is, close Poco beffore copying Poco files to or from an installation. I can't believe I forgot to do my normal "1 2 3" steps, with "Close Poco if running" as step 1. :oops:
