    Question Thunderbird Inbox Problem
    I am having trouble setting thunderbird up on my new computer. The original one shows the inbox and all messages not read in seperate folders.

    The newer one doesnt show anything in the inbox and you have to click to the seperate mail folders to see new messages.

    Also when right clicking for properties there is seperate boxes which come up. On the old computer (the way i want it set up) it says -

    edit saved search properties for inbox

    on the new one it shows the folder properties.

    I cant work out how to display all the mail in the main inbox which is showed when you first open thunderbird. Any help would be greatly appriciated

    Moved here to the correct forum.

    First, Welcome to the Mac Forums.

    The version of Thunderbird you're showing looks like it's the Windows version. Are you using Mac OS X? There is a version of Mozilla Thunderbird for the Mac. You can import all your email easily enough from the Windows version to the Mac version.
