Setting up a new email account in Thunderbird

I have just set up an email account for my wife in Thunderbird.

The address takes the form as follows

xxxxxx@rxxx1111.plus.com

The problem I am having is that I now have the following in the side panel

Inbox (2) Dxxxxx Pxxxx which I do not want or need and is empty Local (2) which is a copy of the first Inbox (2) Drafts (1) Sent Archives various folders Deleted Outbox Dxxxxxx Pxxxx which again is empty and not needed Local This is a special account but without any identies associated with it.

How can I get back to just one Inbox, and delete all the folder with Dxxxxx Pxxx and also delete the second Local folder. I want all the emails no matter to whom they are address in the top Inbox.

I have looked at the site you suggested, but cannot find the answer I require. It seems odd to me that all is ok until I try to added my wife's second email address, her yahoo email account does not cause the same problems. All I want is one inbox folder, one draft folder, one Sent folder,one archives folder with sub folders, one trash folder, as I have always had up until now and not a separate set for that new account. I have had to remove Thunderbird and then re-install it and bring the other information back from my back-up which I made before adding the second email account for my wife. Has anyone else had any problems such as this?

There is an optional Global Inbox feature that may do as you want - I use Thunderbird with several e-mail accounts but I must admit I have not used this feature. I may have a go. Link here.
