You realize that Thunderbirds local cache of IMAP messages is not a

Last time I did this, Thunderbird did update everything back to the server.

No, it didn't, that would be impossible without user intervention.

Your account was likely set up as a POP3 account, so the messages were
stored locally, not on the server.

Then I obviously hallucinated it.  And I hallucinated the
part about "Keep messages for this account on this computer."

Oh well, that what I get for going off my meds.
