This is the correct answer. But, be careful: you may lose some of you 

If you are using offline filters for a POP account, check that each filter are 
moving messages to the correct folders.

Also, if you have several identities, go to "Advanced" tab of each of your 
identities' settings and check the folders are correct there.

The last thing you will have to do is, if you use a different identity in 
different folders, right click on the folder, choose "Folder properties" and 
reassign the identity, because it will have gone back to the default identity.
