Download mail from multiple accounts into Local Folders inbox
Download POP3 e-mail from multiple accounts into a Local Folders inbox, and not individual inboxes by account (by preference).

Workaround: Set up a filter for each account that redirects every mail into the desired folder.
So there are additionaly two problems that should be fixed (IMHO): first: I did so and set up a filter that moves all incoming mail to "local folder/inbox" BUT there's no option in filter settings to move ALL mail. I did it with "Mail ist not older than 100 days" but there's no "all mail" option second: If I'm reading messages in my local folder, there's no way to activate mail reception. I have to click on one of the mailboxes an there, I can receive all accounts.
When browsing mail in Local Folders, the Get Msg button should automatically check for mail on all accounts ("Get All New Messages", as found in the drop-down menu).
If you're browsing in local folder, there is NO drop-down-menu, the whole button is grayed out! (Or is it changed in a nightly build, I use 0.9.9) I cannot get mail while staying in local folder, I have to click on one of my mailboxes.
True. One other thing to be fixed/added in this bug is to add code for the Get Msg button in Local Folders so it can be clicked (and gets all new messages).

I would like for mozilla to move on from separate root-folders per account: Many things would be so much easier when we had only one root element and with every account you would be able to specify where to store emails after download. This paired with virtual folders (bug 11051) would make for an easier and more customizable email experiance. This is inspired by KMail which completely separates accounts from folder structure (misses virtual folders, though).
Yes, I think we should be able to forget we have multiple accounts, and just get all mails. This is very annoying, it is marked as enhancement but I consider it as a conception bug.

Is this bug still alive?
Isn't this a dupe of bug 46041? 46041 doesn't mention "local folders", but the rest of the bug is the same.
yes, looks like a dup. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 46041 ***
