Recently migrated a client from XP to 8.1. Installed Thunderbird 31.1.1 and created email account. Transfered message store files from XP computer with Thunderbird 24. Old folders and emails imported and appeared fine and were accessible but all of the old imported folders can not be rearranged or moved as an entire folder in Thunderbird 31.1.1. Can successfully rearrange the folders on a different computer running Thunderbird 24.

I'm not clear on exactly what you're trying to do. Mail folders normally are listed in alphabetical order within an account. Are you trying to make some of them subfolders of other folders? Are you moving them from one account to another? And what do you mean by "moved as an entire folder"? Can you describe the steps you're taking in TB 24 that do what you want?

Sorry.  Didn't realize this had been neglected for so long.  The client decided not to pursue it further.
