I made the mistake up upgrading to the latest beta, not realizing it would convert my datafile to a different format and you can't go backward. I have done recovery over the years, but all the help refers to the old formats. Opening TB just causes it to hang. I have a large thunderbird file with a lot of files. I thought maybe a folder that I use a lot was too large so I tried splitting it in 2 but it has been unable to sync those since I moved them. Instead my whole computer hung and it turned out 400+MB was being taken by a folder which gets created when a folder can't finish compressing, but I had no choice but to delete that because my computer wouldn't function. In the past when a folder wasn't working right I would delete the folder index file and it would rebuilt the index and re-built that folder. Now all of my folders have mozmsgs but only some have sbd's. And the new folder isn't even there, although it's showing in my TB app when it opens.

I need to know what types of files I should delete in order to have my folders re-sync to the server.

Thanks!

Can some of you share experiences you've had using thunderbird with office 365? I may migrate a small business' email to office 365. I know 365 + thunderbird is possible as long as imap is enabled and that wouldn't be an issue. Mainly I would like to know how smooth it has gone for those that have tried it. I don't think the people at this org use the calendar feature of thunderbird. They would need email and contacts. I've used thunderbird + gmail many times and that combination works well.

Hi folks. I got a popup today advising me to upgrade Thunderbird to the newest version. I thought, "hey why not, I've been using Thunderbird for YEARS, I like it it's great"....so I did I can no longer connect either of my gmail accounts or my icloud account. Is this a known problem with the upgrade? If I wait a bit will "it fix itself"?

Any ideas?

Thanks!
