    I have been using thunderbird and i like it, but i have one question. Is there a way when i delete an email or read it in thunderbird it will get deleted or read in the main email website?

    I use gmail by the way.

    Not exactly, as far as I am aware. By default, all email downloaded by POP from Gmail remains in Gmail and unread in the webmail access. You can have downloaded email to be deleted from Gmail, by going to POP/Forwarding options in Gmail, but it's not an IMAP protocol so the whole read/unread status doesn't get sent back to the Gmail servers.
