Hello All,

 I had to reinstall Windows7 Professional on my laptop due to a problem with Skype.  When Windows installed in the C:\Windows folder, it moved all of my previous folders and files into the C:\Windows.Old folder, so I do have access to them if I know where I need to go to get them.  After the reinstall of Windows7, I reinstalled Thunderbird to get the program and default folders into the correct places.  I then tried to copy all of what I thought was needed but I obviously I missed something.  When I launch Thunderbird I get nothing in the left pane  (where I would normally see my accounts, their inboxes, etc. and if I try to click on any of the links (like Read Messages, or  View settings for this account nothing happens.  If I click on the down arrow to the right of Get Mail I see a drop down with all of my email addresses.

Hopefully this a simple fix. I do not have the ability to execute the previous thunderbird install since it is under a different user profile for a different install of the os.

 Any suggestions will be appreciated..

I have imported about 3000 emails and I am hoping that Thunderbird can review the emails and build a contact list from the senders/receivers. Is this possible? I found an article on rebuilding the global database in Thunderbird, but I cannot find my Thunderbird profile or the local-messages-db.sqlite file. (I have a Mac...which I hate...so I always have trouble finding files.

Can anyone help with this?

I've tried opening a new account but I keep getting asked to enter details of the account I have with Monash that is still open, and the it opens. I wish to transfer all my emails (some of which are already in archived form) to a private account independent of Monash University so that when they cut me off, I still have all me emails. I may be able to switch everything to gmail but I like the fact that Thunderbird allows sorting an INBOX by sender, subject, and date, but gmail does not. Brlund
