How to synchronize the contacts folder in Thunderbird?


I use Thunderbird in different computers so I configured it so that the datas are on an external drive. It works fine except that it seems that the contacts are still saved on the different computers and not on the external drive. It is strange since I have all datas for each profile on my external drive and all Mail and folders are there.
I use different versions of Thunderbird (3.1 and under).
Anyone knows how I could also have my contacts datas on my external drive?

Thanks for the reply. No I donīt use gmail. But I realized that I could try to use portable Thunderbird. I guess that should solve my problem.
