Will these Macs play nice together?

I have an iMac desktop running OS X 10.6.8 and a newly acquired MacBook Air running 10.8.2 and I want to make them be as friendly with one another as possible. Can you hope me?

Mostly, I want to know what the most seamless way to make my mail work between the two is. I've been using Mac Mail on the iMac (with my riseup.net account) and it works well. On the air, I've been using Thunderbird with the same account. I think I like Thunderbird more than mac mail. I would love it if the two instances of Thunderbird (one on each machine) could operate in tandem; I delete an email on the iMac, it is automatically deleted on the air, etc.
Is that possible, or am I the tech idiot I have always thought myself to be?
What other cool things can I do with these things?
Also, I rather like the version of OS X on the air. Can I upgrade the iMac to that version for free or cheap?
Boy, I'm really bad at getting computers 'putin.
