The manual Archive button moves selected emails to the Archive folder, but is it possible or is there a configuration option so that manual archiving moves the selected messages to a “year” subfolder in Archive which works on the year the selected message was originally received? I see that Thunderbird allows archiving messages to a single folder as well as yearly and monthly archived folders with an option to keep the existing folder structure of the archived messages.
I’d like to see better archiving myself. I’d like a year with subfolders for in and out. What I do now, to make it functional, is to have a local folder with annual subfolders then make the current annual subfolder a favorite so it is immediately above All Inboxes. This makes it easy for me to manually archive since I’m moving to the “next door neighbor”.
