What's the difference between storing a folder in "email folder/account" or "local folders"?
I have migrate to Thunderbird from Windows Live Mail and now I would like to know if there's a technical difference between storing my import folders directly into the "email account" folder or into the local folders folder. It seems to me that storing directly in the mail account would make me easier to work, since I can keep the local folder minimized. I have plenty of folders which I use mostly for filters.
I have the same question. In my case, the account is POP3 and, I would think, downloads the mail locally anyway. So, why would I choose the Local folders over the folders with the email address heading?
I can see perhaps why you may use the Local Folders for, say, an IMAP account where you might want to store a local copy, but not so much for POP3.
