I have got all my emails from my mail-server's Inbox in to the Thunderbird's Inbox and my Mail-server's Inbox is empty now. Probably, I might have CHECKED "use Global Inbox" (store mail in local folders) during selecting the type of server (usually POP for commercial accounts), and type in the name of the incoming server.

I would like to ask you two questions:
1. How should I modify and UNCHECK "Use Global Inbox" in the Thunderbird so that all my mail-server's emails do not imported to Thunderbird?
2. How could I get back my all emails from Thunderbird Inbox to my Mail-server Inbox?

Please kindly help...

Dont' think you can get them back on your ISP's mail server. All pop3 based email clients that I have seen have an option to "Leave mail on server" Outlook Express and Eudora both have this feature. I can't believe Mozilla would have forgotten to add that feature.

Hi nicchg

Thunderbird has the Leave messages on server option.
Tools > Account Settings > Server Settings

As for returning those messages back to the Server, you could Forward those messages as attachments and send them to yourself so that they pass through the server again.
Its not pretty and it may be a tedious task if you have a large volume of messages *and* you need to make sure the message size does not exceed your ISP's limit.
