Sadly, I had already done something different by the time I read this.  But if 
I could grab you and kiss you down the internet I would!  I have nearly 
everything intact.  I am having to do a bit of moving around and the settings 
need redoing, but I have my folders, my filters, so far as I can see all my 
emails - in other words, maybe not as good as it could have been but entirely 
acceptable and _far_ better than I was trying to get resigned to!

Many, many thanks,
and of course repeated heartfelt thanks to the rest of you who gave me so much
