How to download all messages (full with message body) with all folders structure and attachments in Thunderbird for offline usage. It could be done probably with IMAP because POP doesn't save folders structure (download everything to one folder).

Open Account Settings > Synchronization & Storage > Message Synchronising then tick the box immediately under this section. The description for that option is self-explanatory, I believe.
