    Default Changing folder properties in Thunderbird.

    I am running a local mail server (Hilary Clinton - style) and recently changed the internal IP address from 192.168.178.200 to 192.168.0.200
    I successfully changed all this in the mailbox settings under "Tools"; "Account settings"; "Server settings" but strange things happened.

    When I right-click on the Inbox ( on the left-side folder tree); and choose "Properties"; I still see the IP address as 192.168.178.200 and I cannot see how I can change this.

    The box won't allow me to edit it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Re: Changing folder properties in Thunderbird.

    Old dick-head here, the reason why these properties cannot be edited is because they are controlled by the imap server.

    The REAL reason for all the problems was that when I changed the ip address, I failed to change my internal firewall settings - thus Thunderbird was not actually talking to the imap server.

    Changed the firewall, now all working OK.

    cheers.
