Hi, I use Thunderbird Email (T.B.). I checked for updates & it says I'm up to date. I have an old work email account listed on top of my Accounts list in the Left Column of the T.B. page. Then I have several different Gmail Accounts under that account. The last account is the "Local Folders". I was goofing around adding separate new accounts to my T.B. email system. I realized I'd really like to organize the way the list stacks up so the most often checked account can be on top then the 2nd most below it etc.. So the list NOW when all the (+) are closed looks like this:
-Old Work Acct
-Gmail 1
-Gmail 3
-Gmail 2
-Local Folders

-------------------
I would like to make it look like this:
-Gmail 1
-Gmail 2
-Gmail 3
-Old Work Acct
-Local Folders.

--------------------

Is there a way to rearrange the list of accounts. It seems like it just adds the new account below the account you made before. I'd like to not have to delete the Gmail accounts & start over if I can just move them around. Plus the "Old Work Acct" I want to move lower on the list simply can not be deleted. It has over 7 years worth of emails!! I tried to select the folder & drag 1 above the other but nothing happened. I did a google search & didn't find much either. I was hoping someone on this site know an easy answer to this problem. Thanks so much everyone!!

I was able to find my own answer.
Get the ThunderBird ADD ON: "Folderpanes Tools"
Here's a link I found that walked me thru it. Works great!!!
