When I installed Thunderbird it imported the wrong WLM folder left over from a PC crash a few years back.
I am a little confused as to how to correct this. I know where the correct WLM folder is, but I'm not sure what to do with the already loaded folders in Thunderbird (Inbox, Deleted, Sent, etc). Do I just delete the folder contents in Thunderbird and import the correct WLM folder? My OS Windows 10. Mail is Windows Live Mail 2012.
I will appreciate direction on this.

If you don't want or need the imported data you can delete the folder content and import data from the correct WLM folder -- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1046033
