I would like to protect access to the Thunderbird software on my PC by being prompted for a password (for the acct) when Thunderbird is first accessed/opened. I frequently download email (via my yahoo POP acct) to my PC and currently there's no security on the PC to prevent unauthorized access to email folders (on my PC) within Thunderbird. The master password concept doesn't apply here because email is already downloaded (thus not being accessed on an email server). Netscape back in the day provided this security feature and wondered if Thunderbird has a similar feature. Any assistance would be appreciated.

I don't know how to fix this. I have important emails so I can't just uninstall and re install without losing them, but I can't receive any messages

I have been to every page without success. I have followed every suggestion given for restoring a profile to no avail. My win8.1 (64 bit) crashed (not the hard drive). I had to wipe the drive clean necessitating a download of latest Thunderbird. I had saved my profile on a backup hard drive. I have tried restoring with Mozback, manually replacing the files in my old profile, editing the profile.ini file...nothing has worked.

I've been using Thunderbird since v 1.1 and have emails that old. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the older v.24 since that was what is on my old computer and it works. I know the mail has migrated from a pop account to imap and thought that might be the problem. That's why I tried several different older versions. I did manage to get my address books back with v.31 but no mail. I cannot express my level of frustration. I thought backing it up was the answer. Obviously not.

Can anyone help me to get my mail back?
