    The folder classes all implement the nsIMsgFolder interface. There are currently three folder classes - nsLocalMailFolder, nsImapMailFolder, and nsNewsFolder. They all inherit from nsMsgDBFolder, which implements a lot of the core functionality. RSS feeds are implemented by nsLocalMailFolder.

    Each line in the folder pane corresponds to a folder object.

    Folders have a number of interesting attributes:

    • parent
    • subfolder
    • server
    • uri
    • flags

    and methods

    • getDatabase ( how to get a database of the messages in the folder.)
    • updateFolder (gets new messages for that folder, if applicable, e.g., pop3 inboxes, imap folders, news folders, rss folders)
