Seems like there is a bug in Tbird not allowing selection of IMAP only
folder that can hold messages and folders (from my quick skim).

The tbird folks have not proven very IMAP friendly over the years...
with defaults like downloading the IMAP store to local storage
on windows to the user's "roaming profile", and then having most
of their features only work for local content.

They never got that many IMAP servers had search abilities that run
quite a bit quicker than a javascript-searches--and that IMAP
servers were really like file-systems -- not something to downloaded
like POP mail that they predominantly dealt with...

I had mail loss problems -- had backups fortunately. Scary...
Nightmare synchronizing old mail from backups to folders.

I keep most of my archives read-only now...
