    have been using gmail on thunderbird via IMAP, works great most of the time, havwe a question.

    On the folders on the left of the thunderbird screeen I noticed i have created some as subfolders of "[gmail]" and some as subfolders of the top item in the list, ie my gmail address. Having checked that they are all stored on gmail not remotely they are, however, those folders that are stored under "[gmail]" are prefixed as such, those under the top item (my address) are prefixed by IMAP.

    What does this mean? Should I create all my folders under "gmail" or the top item if I want to store them all online??
