I have a handful of email accounts for my one domain which get redirected to a single email account, for convenience. But, I need to add a rule to ThunderBird so that each of those emails goes into their own folder, and displays the Unread flag.

To be clear, here is my situation: (primary) (redirected to MyName@) (redirected to MyName@)

So, I log in to and get emails for all three accounts.

So, in my Inbox (for MyName) I created folders for:

When emails flow in for the three accounts, I need Admin and Support to auto-locate in their correct folders and the Unread flag to show for that folder.

How do I do this with ThunderBird?
