I can launch TB 78.7.0 (Windows 10) but it suddenly can't find mail (Inbox, Sent, Trash, Junk, ...). However, the Address Book is still accessible. The problem began two days ago after recovering successfully from a corrupted recycle bin on the drive on which my Profile and Mail are stored.
When I look into the folders containing my Profile and Mail files I see that they appear to be intact and current.
Now when I launch TB I get TB's Welcome to Mozilla Thunderbird page with a "Set Up Your Existing Email Address" dialog (see first attached image below). I'm hesitant to proceed with this Set Up as I don't understand what consequences it may have on my Profile and Mail files.
My TB Profile/Mail Configuration -
Since 2004 on the advise of Mozilla forum I've kept my Profile and Mail files separate from my system drive. The recommended configuration has been plagued with frequent problems. In September, 2020 with the assistance of a wonderfully helpful Toad-Hall contributor I restructured my TB profile so that C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles.ini refers TB to the profile/mail location on my F: data drive (C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles.ini is shown in the second attached image below). A list of files and folders in F:\Files\Technical\Settings\TBIRD\Profiles\m37787v5.Default User is displayed in the third image below. The directory structure now follows a path similar to the default and has caused no problems since adopting it until now.
Can you help me figure this out?
