Thunderbird...accessing old messages on server


#1

I am using thunderbird on Mac, OSX

I seem to recall when I used OS 9, classic and Outlook, I could get the other folders that were set up in webmail (folders I created and the Old Messages)

I don’t seem to be able to find that option in thunderbird…does any one know if it can be done? and if so…how?

thanks
Barbara

If you set up your accounts as IMAP, you should have no difficulty getting all your Webmail folders.

Personally, I prefer Entourage 2004. I think it’s a far better email client. Yes it costs money, but if you by the student and teachers edition Office, it’s less than $130 these days. And you don’t have to sign a loyalty oath to prove you’re either student or teacher. Microsoft assures me that they’ll take any sale. Besides, almost every family has one or both.

The only downside is that this version of Office can’t be upgraded. So you’d have to pay for it all over again when Office 2008 for the Mac is out.

I’m not a Thunderbird user, but there’s typically an IMAP setting for the mailbox path prefix. It should be set to INBOX

That’s done automatically in Thunderbird.
