I use SeaMonkey 1.1.12 on Ubuntu Linux and I want to get the following
behaviour from the SeaMonkey mail client:
Some of the mail messages I receive I want to save them in a custom
folder in my home directory. Let's call it here "important-mail". The
"important-mail" folder MUST NOT be located under the "Local Folders"
folder which is accessible from the mail client interface but must be
accessible from the folder pane in the same way we access our usual
folders. Thus, saving email messages in the filesystem should be a
simple drag & drop operation instead of a boring File/Save
as/etc. Also reading messages should be simpler then reading a saved
message since I don't have to open them by going through the File
menu, but will be enough to click on "important-mail" folder and then
on the message subject.
Solutions for Seamonkey on MS Windows are welcomed too.
First of all thank you for the reply.
If I'm understanding you right, you can right click on your email
address and add a new folder. I have two: Temp and Keepers.
Porbably I didn't explain very well. I have lots of folders but all of
them are on the IMAP server and of course, I can copy/move messages
between them. I do not have problems creating folders on the server.
My problem is creating folders on my filesystem. And I want these
folders to behave like those on the server.
The perfect example of such a folder (and of what I want) is the
"Local folders" folder which is stored on my machine filesystem and
which is accessible from the "folder pane".
Can I create another folder similar to "Local folders" which is not
stored under "Local folders"?

emails about orders etc into Temp until the order is received.
Keepers is for later archiving as .txt or .eml files on another hard
In addition to what Christian described, let me add:
Each account (POP, IMAP and also 'Local Folder') has it's own file
location where the mail collection is stored, it's basically a plain
file (WIN-wise)). The dark side is: you can have one one file location
per account. The bright side is, you can place for each account the file
onto a different WIN-dir. And I have placed all folders into a structure
D:\_Mozilla\TB_gW\Profiles\gW\Mail\.... <-- my pop accounts
D:\_Mozilla\TB_gW\Profiles\gW\ImapMail\.... <-- my imap accounts
D:\_Mozilla\TB_gW\mailFolder\local\.... <-- my local folder
You see you can place it anywhere on the (WIN) PC.
Now, if you want to store your "important-mail" to a very separate
location, you define a dummy account. Place the folder location onto eg.
How to do:
I'm using TB, but SM should be similar: this setting is at 'View
seetings of the account', go to 'Server setting' .. there you have
"Local directory" .. use [Browse ... ]
