    Because of a problem I had to re-install Thunderbird [ver.5]

    I have always combined all accounts in one INCOMING folder- but forget how to do it with this new installation.

    I know it must be pretty easy, but I just can't remember how- your help would be much appreciated.

    Click Tools>Account Settings.
    Left pane click Server Settings>Advanced button.
    Select what Inbox you want all mail to go to (Global Inbox used to be the default but now default is the Inbox for each account).
    Do that for each account and OK the changes.
    All mail should now go to the selected Inbox.
