How to get them back? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Served me well for a long time. But now I need to get my Local Folders back (I only need a new empty local folder to sort certain messages) – how can I accomplish that?

By disabling the addon! :)

Useful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good extension. This extension is usefull for Thunderbird users that do not known how to use locale folder or do not want to use local folders.
Carefull that if you had renamed the "Local Folders" account name to something else you need to rename the account name back to "Local Folders" and then restart thunderbird to hide the account in the folder list.

Works Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works great on Arch Linux with latest kernel, latest Thunderbird. For those of you that say you don't need this, Not everyone wants to hack their Thunderbird. I wish more plugins just plain friggin worked.

Works as advertised Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does exactly what it says on the tin. Thanks!

The comment here calling it unnecessary is incorrect. As it says in the description, it simply hides the entries in the folder pane. It definitely works fine on Linux now too, as that's where I'm using it.

You don't need this Rated 3 out of 5 stars

To go: Tools > Account Settings > Server Settings > Under Message Storage, go to Advanced > Inbox for a different account > Choose "Local Folders".

Now set up a mail rule Under: Tools > Message Filters to move the messages into a folder of your choice.

For the non-english users, you just have to rename your local folders in english. For the French, rename your "Dossiers locaux" to "Local folders" and then reboot Thunderbird.
