I had a fairly sophisticated set of Search Folders set up on custom tags - I guess, long story short, there were a lot, they were complicated to set up, and now they're gone.
I changed IMAP server on the account and on restarting T'bird as requested - they'd gone.
I went for a backup to investigate what had changed - and, discovered all the Search Folders saved as:
`[profile] > Mail > smart mailboxes > tags.sbd > [search folder name].msf`
Also, there are corresponding directories under `tags.sbd`.
So, my question, why aren't they working and what do I need to do to make them work again? I did a comparison between backup version from before the IMAP server change and there does appear to be some minor changes to the contents of the `[Search Folder name].msf` files.
Also, why does the directory containing my mail messages:
`[profile] > ImapMail > mail.gandi.net-maildir`
Retain the name of the previous IMAP server and not the new one - and, I guess it's more aesthetic than anything, but perhaps it's connected to the disappearing Search Folders. Anyway, can the directory name be changed?
