Password protecting folders on thunderbird

Does anyone know how to password protect a folder on mozilla thunderbird

I have 2 accounts, 1 for anyone to see and the other for my private mail.

Is there an extension or command I can use so that to see the folder contents, you must enter a password?

Password protect the message pane (IMAP only)

With this trick, Mozilla Thunderbird will password protect the message list pane (aka the thread pane) by keeping it blank until you log in and enter a password for that account. In the Config Editor, search for the preference mail.password_protect_local_cache, and change its value to true.
