Can't get mail into separate accounts

    When I set up Thunderbird 1.02 on a new laptop I neglected to establish
    the two accounts I use on my desktop, so all mail (on the laptop) goes
    into Local Folders. I've now set up the two accounts and under Server
    Settings/Advanced have checked "Inbox for this server's account."
    However, all incoming mail for the two accounts still goes into Local
    Folders. What else should I do to make this changeover?

    You might try: Tools, account settings, under mail, copies and folders.

    You can right click the mail accounts in the side panel and create
    new folders also.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried using Copies and Folders under Mail
    to redirect my mail into the two accounts. Now I get the message "You
    have x new messages in B account," but when I look in B account, there
    are no new messages, and I can't find them elsewhere either. Guess
    I'll just reinstall the program.

    Try marking the "Inbox for different account" option and selecting the
    correct account from the drop down list.
