I'm using G-Mail and Thunderbird together for an imap account. One of the limitations of G-Mail is that there's no concept of nested labels - which is fine when I'm using the account through the web interface but when I'm using Thunderbird I would like a bit more organization.

Is there a way for Thunderbird to locally remap an imap folder's path? For example with a "MyCustomLabel" label:

  • Thunderbird: "MyAccount/path/on/local/machine/MyCustomLabel"
  • G-Mail: "MyCustomLabel"
