Maybe I should amend this question, having subsequently gone over Kay's instructions. What is not clear, or perhaps I missed, in the instructions is the relationship between the POP3 account and Local Folders. The idea of mail coming into the POP3 folders and then having to be transferred over to the Local/imported set for storage is not appealing. My question is how to make them one, at least functionally (i.e., even if Local Folders nominally continues to show).
