If you change from digests to individual mails then the threads are
all there for you, all you need is a decent MUA (mail client) that
handles threads properly. I also have a filter program to deliver my
mail so that (for example) Digikam mails all arrive in their own

I use the AppImage too, on two Ubuntu systems.

I synchronise between my two systems (one a desktop, the other a
laptop) using syncthing, there's no cloud involved. (files are backed
up as well but that's a different thing). I have syncthing running
all the time so synchronisation happens as/when I make changes. I
don't run Digikam on both systems at the same time of course.

I simply let each system have its own database and this seems to work
fine. All I synchronise between the two systems is the album hierarchy.
