editing accountrc file is the same as what Craig just told to you by
editing the accounts at "Configuration  -->  Edit accounts".

The only way to change how the accounts are displayed in the window
tree is by editing the XML file folderlist.xml. Before edit it, even
though Sylpheed does backups of that file, make your own too, just in
case. And even better, of the whole Sylpheed Mail folders (where you
have set your folders).

Each account is each <folder> tag; from <folder> to </folder>.

Just move the desired account, delimited as told above, from one
place to another. Cut and paste, in other words. I'd wish we could
have an editor, but that is the way to do that (maybe there is
available one editor now somewhere but I don't use the latest
version). But, also, Linux might have some XML editor. I bet for it ;)

The process is quite safe. I have done several times in my
installation, so, don't worry.
