I have a lot of email accounts and before I try and add them all to Thunderbird, I wondered if there is a way of changing the order they are listed on the left-hand side?
I was hoping that under Account settings, you would be able to select one of the accounts and then use a "move up" or "move down" option "Account Actions" at the bottom to change the order, but there is no such option.
I have just added two email accounts at the moment and tried using "Set as Default" under "Account Actions" which does set the selected account to the top (at least in Account Settings immediately, but also in Thunderbird itself after logging out and back in again.
What I am hoping was that someone might know if I added 10 email accounts, then wanted to change the order of their listing, I could use "Set as Default" a number of times to move the selected one to the top until they are listed in the order that I desire?
Of course I could just make sure that I add each account in the reverse order to which want them listed, which is fine until I want to add an additional one and change the order again (I do not want to keep removing them again and re-adding them in a certain order if I need to add a new one).
Of course I could just try trial and error, but it seems to me that surely I am not the only one that wants to use a lot of email accounts and change the order they are listed, later? Perhaps there is a more elegant solution that I am unaware of (even if this requires manually editing a configuration file or something?).
Any help appreciated...
