Thanks. Hopefully Thunderbird will allow me to do it as well.
Last question, I guess. When I save these offline messages, will
they be available on the server side when I set the new account up
with them? Or will I definitely only have them on my computer and
IMAP will take care only of the new messages from now on?

I don't think you import them into the new account. I don't
use Thunderbird, but Windows Live Mail has folders in the e-mail
program itself specifically for saving messages you want to
store in the program and not have them on the e-mail server.
You can move messages to those folders. You aren't backing
anything up in this way. You are moving mail to off line
folders. You may want to back up mail as well. I'll let those
who use Thunderbird explain how.

Thanks for the excellent answer.
However what I need to know is way simpler, I guess :)
I just wish to know if there's a way of saving my atual messages
that are already into Thunderbird for import them to the new
account or I will lose everything without anything I could try
doing before it happens.
Also, is there any difference reading e-mails? Any thing I should
be aware of when setting my account with IMAP? Any thing I need to
activate on the web interface?

Basically pop3 is when you actually download the
messages and can sort them at your end. Imap is a synchronising
system where what is on the remote server is what is on your
computer. This means that you can move messages within imap
yourself and they will stay on the remote server as well, but
pop 3 allows offline rules which is why I use it. I think if
you have imap and pop3 access to the same account you can just
delete the ones you want to on imap, then either move thee ones
you want to keep manually to other folders on that imap
interface, or then go and download what is left to the pop3
version and use rules to sort the messages there. Beware though
as I found out the hard way that my ISP seems to have only
limited sync between pop3 and Imap meaning that if I delete them
on Imap they still download from pop3, but if I move spam on
Imap to inbox I get those also delivered to pop3.
I know Google seems to have a slightly different way of working
as if I delete my email on,, say my Iphone on a gmail account it
won't download it to pop3, so assuming the Iphone is using Imap,
then they obviously enforce the rules
Really I agree its a nightmare, but if you think what you
actually want to do and ignore the Imap, then does it really
matter if the inbox on there is a mess, you really only need to
look at spam and move to inbox for the stuff to be delivered.

I use POP and I delete most of the messages right after
