My ISP recently had a hardware failure of the machine my messages
are stored on. They have rebuilt it from backup, but now
Thunderbird shows everything in my Inbox, whereas before my
extensive set of filters would divert messages into separate
folders. The folder hierarchy was under the ISP account, not
Local Folders. I do not have Serverside folders with this
account.

"The folder hierarchy was under the ISP account" <> "I do not have
Serverside folders with this account." ??

I presume I'll have to recreate the original folder structure. I
know the usual mantra is "Why not try it?", but I don't want to
mess things further if the ISP will eventually restore my folder
structure.

If your data/email is intact, it seems pretty odd for the ISP not
to have restored your folder hierarchy.

I don't quite understand the difference between serverside
filtering/folders, locally created folders under an email
account, and local folders under 'Local Folders'. The last one
seems to delete the mail from the remote server, which is not
what I want.

server side means your folders are stored on the server, not on
your local machine. Same for the filtering.



Thanks Per,

My folders have now been restored (see my reply to John), and the
light of understanding is gradually getting brighter ;-)
