Mozilla Thunderbird automatically synchronises (downloads full emails OR downloads headers) the INBOX folder for each IMAP account. This behaviour is undesirable for users who want to synchronise only specific IMAP folders.
We would like someone to develop a bugfix that addresses this bug as following:
1. Setting to skip synchronisation of INBOX folder - either in Account Settings (as per screenshot), or in another suitable place.
2. When setting is ON, Thunderbird must NOT download anything into the INBOX folder.
Project will be deemed successfully completed if a functional add-on is developed or if bugfix is accepted in next Thunderbird release.

Screenshot (see attachment) shows mock-up of possible implementation in Mozilla Thunderbird.
