Those items are normally in your Finder window under the tab named Places. Make sure your Places arrow is pointed down or open.

Any item you see in the right finder window can be dragged into the Places section of the finder. If you want something off the list, just drag it off the window and it will poof and be gone.

The panel I'm looking for is the one in the Email progam "thunderbird'.
Expert:  Bob Cook replied 8 years ago.
OK, Good to know.

You can tell Thunderbird to use a different folder (or a folder in a different account) using "Tools -> Account Settings -> Copies & Folders".

If you have not yet updated to Thunderbird 2, do that because it improves the folder functions.

That doesn't do it! What I'm lookinh for is the panel in my THUNDERBIRD display that list the links to: XXXXX XXXXX DRAFTS, TRASH, ETC.

Click on the arrow just to the left of Local Folders to open the view.

If you right click in the blue area under Local Folders a window pops up and you can choose New Folder...
Name it want you want. Then go to Preferences to set your actions to those folders.

Non of the things you suggested solved the problem! I got an answer from our sin in Boston.
The problem was that some how the "splitter" bar had been moved by one of using the computer. Moving it back solved theproblem. BUT, you earned the ten bucks so I will click on accept.
