Experts,

My incoming emails go into my "Local Folders" inbox.  I want them to go into my "Personal Folders" inbox.  Why do I have two inboxes anyway?

Hello NigelRocks,

What is your environment?  Single computer? Network? Exchange?  Local folders is your Thunderbird folders.  This is where POP3 accounts download its emails. Personal Folders is associated wtih Exchange.  

If you are downloading emails via IMAP protocol, you have separate set of folders. That is how IMAP works.

Hope this helps!

NigelRocks, If you desire your mail to go into your own Personal Folders, it is very easy.  The Local Folder is also known as the Global Inbox.
