14 Ok, got it -- weirdly enough, one has to use the CLI to address
15 this. The GUI preferences dialog doesn't have a provision for
16 making t-bird not create unwanted folders, but once they're created
17 can be deleted in ~/.thunderbird/ and then they don't come back
18 when t-bird is restarted.
20 Now it's running with only the remote and local IMAP structures
21 as they're supposed to be.
