In Thunderbird (Windows 10), the messages in one of my mailboxes disappeared. Now new messages appear in that mailbox, but as soon as I mark them read, they disappear. I’ve looked everywhere I can think of and can’t find the messages. Any ideas about where they might be or what I can do to retrieve them? I desperately need them.

Windows 10. I had a power failure today and when the machine came back up, I was at the "create new account" screen for thunderbird.

EVERY SINGLE EMAIL ACCOUNT was blown away. Oh yes, All the key files and mail data itself was still there but NO access to it.

So after much googling and reading some of the most stupidest answers on here I had no choice but to recreate EVERY account and then move the message files into the newly created -1 folders in the VERY SAME PROFILE folder when all the original stuff lived.

How can this be? How is it possible that a hard crash can be so detrimental to a very old and well established format known as email?

My computer crashed and when I launched Thunderbird it came up with opening screen (Set up an existing account). I'm hoping the data and setting are still there. Is there a way to bypass the new account and get to old email?

Or since I'm setting up a new computer can I just follow directions in "Moving Thunderbird to a New Computer"?

'I already wrote but should say I'm on MAC not pc...'

I recently changed all my pop to imap.. It's been a disaster...I was not able to send or receive from any of my 3 computers after the change. It took me days of all my possible help "passing the buck" "not our end": a)my spam protection people, b)internet provider c)email domain hosts (2 of them- just for fun)

And, of course, the no tech support Thunderbird (fun part of the equation).... there is also a password problem somehow which I bypassed smtp finally using port 25 and 2525 unsecured...

and I now can send and receive...WOW.

I'm pretty much an expert after a full week of 8-12 hour days... This all happened because I was getting occasional failure to send bounce backs...thought I'd fix it...

Anyway current problems are: 1) working with our spam protector tech transitioning from my very happy pop life to imap: ALL my message folders (15 years worth of business email) in one box were deleted..

2)In my other domain all my message they seem to be there but are greyed out, labeled "IN BOX bla bla..."

Is it possible to recover these and how? I've looked in "Profile Folder" "Show in Finder" and some seem to be there... how can I pull out these folders and sub folders that I depend on for my work?

Is there anyone to help me??? Thank you.

I do not want to erase my emails that go back several years. Someone from the Community advised me to not use thumbdrive, so I bought an external hd. I have read others' problems and I do not want to create problems. But my laptop is running out of room. Can I store local folders on the external hd to free up space on my laptop's hd? If I move EVERYTHING to the external, will Thunderbird still be on my laptop? I sort of need walk-through help because I am not familiar with doing computer things.

Starting with 68.4.2 I've been seeing this weird behavior for received messages. For some messages the content is not displayed when I try to read the message - the reading pane body portion is blank. If I "Reply To Sender" then the message content appears so obviously it's not a case of Thunderbird not being able to interpret the message. Also if I save the message as an eml it saves correctly. So why can't Thunderbird display it on reading, but it display ok on "Reply To Sender"? My font settings are attached.

My old computer has died and I've got a new one, installed Ubuntu and Thunderbird. I need to get the contacts into the new Thunderbird profile but don't have access to an exported file, only the two .mab files. I know has been asked before, and I've tried following some of the advice but It's not working for me:

  • I tried pasting in the history.mab and abook.mab and restarting Thunderbird but none of the contacts appeared.
  • Advice to use MoreFunctionsForAddressBook add-on appears to be outdated.

Is there a way to configure multiple addressbook files and thus add (say) history-1.mab and abook1.mab (the files from my backup) to the new default ones?

Dear there,

I got an issue about the configuration of the email account in thunderbird. To save the space of disk, I would like to only download recent emails. So first I tried POPs options, but failed. There were no options for the related settings. Then I turned to IMAP options. But after Synchronization & Storage was set, the client did not seem to work well. It downloaded all messages from the remote server. Even though all the historic messages were deleted, the client downloaded all the messages again next time. What did it happen? Could you please give me a hand? Many thanks.

BTW, I create a new profile in D:\mymail disk. I hope this could not influence the upper steps.

Regards, Alex
