While going through Litmus test # 2170, I found that if I have a pop account that uses my global inbox, and I try to save or autosave a draft, I have no way of navigating to them from the global inbox. I have to specify for the account to use its own inbox, before I can see a "Drafts" folder containing my saved emails.

STR:
1. Create a pop account
2. Go to the account settngs, select the server settings for it, and click Advanced
3. Click on the radio button that uses the global inbox
4. Create a draft and click on Save

Expected: My Local Folders should have my saved drafts in the Unsent folder or some Drafts folder. Or I should have the option to specify a folder to save my Copies somewhere in my Local Folders

Actual: I don't know where my drafts get saved.
Have such similar problems. After change account from or to "global inbox" the draft folder hangs on old location.

Workaround: After changing the account from or to global inbox must manually change the default folders for "draft" and "send" too.

Warning dialog was not displayed by Tb at this step? 

Currently, Tb simply hides account's folders from folder pane. So warning is displayed when change of "not use Global Inbox => use Global Inbox".
  See Bug 397429 : "not use Global Inbox" => "use Global Inbox (warning)
  See Bug 313047 : "use Global Inbox" => "not use Global Inbox (no warning)
