Cannot find it.
well, you didn't look hard enough:
Note: you'll also need to install xsidebar.
Further, is there a way to hide a mail account from view and from
the list in File, and to restore it easily? This is to prevent mails
from being filed in a wrong account while keeping it handy when needed.
I have no idea what you're typing here

John, lets step back a little and examine what you are really looking
for, a way to keep messages in their respective accounts and sub folders.
If you created all your e-mail accounts as individual accounts you
already have a built in method of keeping all the incoming messages
sorted into their correct account. If you created all your e-mail
accounts using the Global Account where all your messages from all mail
accounts go into Local Folders there is only one solution, change all
your e-mail accounts to individual accounts in SeaMonkey.
I have four different mail accounts and each one is an individual
account in SM, each account has multiple sub folders, and some of the
incoming messages in these accounts are automatically diverted into
respective sub folders.
The only time I get a message into the wrong account, or sub folder is
when I grab a message with the mouse, drag, and drop it into the wrong
Take a long look at the SeaMonkey Help files for Messages and Accounts
this may help further explain how to resolve your question.
Michael, thanks but I am very familiar with accounts setup.
What I am trying to do is mask an individual account so that I cannot
accidently move an email to it (actually, I almost never use the drag
and drop, I mostly use the File submenu). What I am trying to prevent
exactly is what you describe in your sentence "the only time". And this
not an issue of filters, just of mistakes while filing an email.
I was wondering if there is a way, while not changing the structure of
the accounts, to make one account invisible, both on the left column
and in File, to make such an error impossible, while retaining the
possibility to restore its visibility when needed.
I have never heard anything suggesting this is possible, but I cannot
claim, by far, I have an exhaustive knowledge of SM add-ons ... as Peter
