Send a new message when you start a new topic. Thanks.

I am asking a question for something that I solved a long time ago
I can't remember, or seem to see, how I did it.

I have a number of email addresses that get checked for mail and I
all incoming mail from these going into the one folder.  I have
added another email account and want to have the mail from this
in with the rest of my mail rather than into its own separate inbox

Can someone assist me here with how I do this?  Very frustrating to
have had sorted this out ages ago and then lose the knowledge.

Mail accounts that are local ("POP3" etc) all end up in the local "On
this computer" Inbox, because the mail is only on your local machine
once you have pulled it from the mail server.

Mail accounts that are remote ("IMAP" etc) end up with a separate
and a separate inbox, as they are synced to what is also on the
corresponding mail server.

You could set up a (virtual) search folder based on the two inboxes:

You could set up a filter to move/copy mail from one folder to

Not being one who posts to lists such as this at all, I have no idea
what you are talking about, and I know little about etiquette.  I think
that this archaic bottom posting is the rule here?  The link you
provided means nothing to me and sheds no light on the question I
posed, as far as I can see.  How am I responding to a random message
when I started a new topic?  If this has been addressed in the past I
don't even know where to go to search for it.  So apologies if I've
knocked the Evolution list off its axis.

Your solution is not correct.  I have both POP3 and IMAP accounts all
directing their incoming mail into the one inbox.  I have a total of 4
POP3 accounts and 2 IMAP accounts happily directing the mail into one
convenient place.  So your convoluted work around is not what I am

Having had a small whinge now, I do thank you for taking the time to
reply, but you are incorrect in your distinction between POP3 and IMAP.

If I've violated some other rule with this reply just delete it and
I'll forget all about it.
