Thunderbird Mail GOTCHA!

I switched to Firefox 0.92 and Thunderbird mail program. I imported my voluminous collection of inbox folders without a hitch. Or so I thought. Because I’m now a member of the Board of Directors of the Z Club of Houston, I had set up some folders for those emails (E.g., #ZCOH General, #ZCOH Convention, #ZCOH Webstuff, #ZCOH Membership) . Notice I put the hashmarks at the beginning of these folders because I wanted them right at the top of the folder list. Well, Thunderbird ignored them and never imported those folders. I went back to Outlook 2002, made a backup of my *.pst file, pruned everything out but those ZCOH folders, renamed them to remove the hashmark and then attempted another “import.” Worked fine! Just remember if you have anything like this, rename it before starting the import process.
