hi all,

look what i did:

1) config pop3 account to stop checking new email
2) create a new imap account: it was created by default using the same
local folder as the pop3 account. Thus all recent email was there.
3) change local folder of pop3 account to sth different (eg

The new account works fine but i cannot access older email of the
mailboxes that it inherited from the pop3 account. I tried to
reconfigure the local folder of the older pop3 account in hope of
accessing these older msgs but the system refuses.

Any idea?
