A POP Un-Birthday Gift: Global Inbox

Do you have multiple POP accounts and need a neat and tidy way to manage them by using a single inbox? It just must be your lucky day, because Thunderbird’s Global Inbox feature does exactly that. The great thing about Global Inbox is that you don’t necessarily have to use it for all your POP accounts. Here’s the deal:

  • Use Global Inbox for POP accounts—Folders are not displayed in the folders pane—Local Folders shows a single set of folders. All POP mail for those accounts is stored and managed in one folder directory structure, as shown in Figure 10-8.

    Figure 10-8. Thunderbird with Global Inbox turned on.

  • Do not use Global Inbox for POP accounts—Inbox and a set of folders is displayed in the folders pane for each POP account, as shown in Figure 10-9.

    Figure 10-9. Thunderbird with Global Inbox turned off.
