    Creating folders for email account (thunderbird 1.5)

    Edited by HansV to remove superfluous white space from attached image

    I have created 2 email acccounts which l imported the settings from outlook, but l cannot work out to create a folder for each email account l have in thunderbird, see screenshot. As l have a global inbox for both accounts.

    Hi,

    Either tick the box that says "inbox for this server's account" for each account, or, if you really want most of your mail in one inbox, create appropriate local folders and use filter rules to stream the incoming mail accordingly.

    Re: Creating folders for email account (thunderbird 1.5)

    Hello,

    Can you show me a screenshot of what you mean , as l tried and it did not create a folder. As l want to make sure l am selecting right option. I will try and make rules if it is not possible.
    Can you try it for yourself and see if you can get it to work , i.e. create settings in OE then import into T/bird and create folder for each account as l don't think it is possible.
    I want one folder to be called "personal" and the other to be called "spam"

    Hi,

    Sorry I didn't use OE, but I created an account in TB as in the attachment
