Okay, this is somewhat complicated, but let's see if I can explain clearly.
I am using Thunderbird with my ISP (Bestweb) on an IMAP server I use Thunderbird on two PC computers, mine and my husband's ("dh") I copied my TB profile from my computer to my dh's at the beginning of July Both computers are set to "keep messages for this account on this computer" under the "synchronization and storage" account settings (see screen shot attached from my dh's computer) I keep all of my deleted items in a folder titled "Deleted Items". My account settings on both computer are never to delete these emails.
Due to circumstances too complicated to explain, I lost a *lot* of deleted emails, which I keep and use all the time. When I realized what happened, I remembered that I had a "backup" of sorts on my dh's computer, as I had not accessed TB from his computer in a while. I reasoned that since the TB on his computer had not had a chance to sync to my ISP's IMAP server, the deleted emails would still be there as long as I did not open TB on his computer when it was connected to the Internet. As best as I can tell, the last time I accessed TB from his computer was around 9 AM on 7/22/15. So, sure enough, I disconnect his computer from the Internet, open TB and see that my missing emails are there. However, when I go to the profile on his computer and look at the folder labeled "Deleted Items.mozmsgs", the most recent message in that file is dated 7/2/15. How can I find the emails from 7/2 – 7/22/15?
Thanks for your help. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Since the last upgrade, Thunderbird stops the entire PC when the popup box appears after all messages have been downloaded.

The last auto upgrade included a calendar function, which I switched off as I thought this was causing the problem. But now after all the messages have downloaded, I get the usual pop-up box in the bottom right of the screen telling me I have received x messages but it only half fades in and the whole PC jams. CTR-ALT-DEL does not work and I can't switch to a different window or even click on anything in the Thunderbird screen. The only thing that I can do is hard reboot the PC and switch off the router, which allows me to start up Thunderbird without anything downloading. I am using Windows 7 and Avast as my AV. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
