Using Ubuntu 18.04, TB 60.2.1. I have TWO Gmail accounts; both are POP. I'd like to have them combined as they come in to ONE Inbox (with all the subsequent sub-folders).

I had this situation organised in Evolution, but our organisation switched to DUO (2FA) and Evolution is a bit of a pain with DUO.

Anyway, is this possible?

Thanks,
Andor

Easy. Configure each POP account to use a global inbox per http://kb.mozillazine.org/Global_Inbox . That will hide the accounts folders in the folder pane and have them use the inbox in the special "Local Folders" account.

A more complex solution is http://kb.mozillazine.org/Replace_sever ... ne_account . It doesn't make sense if you only have POP accounts, but thought I'd mention it in case you also had some IMAP accounts.
