Mail folders show as newsgroups

First post,so forgive any incorrectitudes!

Imported a large collection of messages from Windows Live Mail 11 into Thunderbird, where I had already set up newsgroups. Created a new folder "D" into Local Folders and imported there, but two issues:

- folder "D" shows (right-click, properties) like a newsgroup - it has General information and Retention Policy tabs. Maybe this is OK?

- when replying to a message it appears to be using the wrong account. In the From line it shows:

 David J Taylor <my-email> (in italics)

and a Newsgroup line (blank).

whereas it I create a new e-mail using Write, the From shows:

 David J Taylor <my-email>  my-email (in italics)

and no Newsgroup line. I don't understand whether this is to do with the e-mail properties (the one I'm replying to) or whether it's a property of the folder tree I created. I have searched for a solution but not found one. Is there a way to fix this, please?

Thanks, David
