So, long story but I upgraded to a beta to try to help with a different issue I was having (it was the add-ons that ultimately were causing the issues, not Thunderbird). After upgrading to 93.xbx, I started getting error messages when my email was downloading (I use POP3).
"The messages could not be filtered to folder 'xxxxxxxx' because adding a message to it failed. Verify that the folder is displaying properly or try to repair it from the folder properties."
I would rather not do this as it is a lot of folders.
I start looking around, end up seeing a few posts for older versions that say to backup my profile, delete it, import it and a bunch of other stuff.
My problem seems a little different than these also. Once the messages are downloaded, I can run the filters on them manually and they are filtered into the correct folders properly with no errors.
So, I have done the whole Repair Folder thing, it didn't help. I also have deleted the msf file. This also did not help. IF I download me email, get the errors, go find the folder that the error is about, I noticed that the folder shows normal text (Not BOLD) and no unread messages. If I then click on the folder, it will populate the amount of unread messages and also may go BOLD.
To me, since it works if I allow Thunderbird to download all the messages then I manually click Filter Selected Messages, this does not seem to be a profile problem and more of a timing issue where the file may be locked?
Anyone have any ideas?
