Ok, so this morning i noticed that my sent box in thunderbird no longer had a copy of 2 messages i sent out on yesterday. But messages for all the days prior to yesterday were there.
It is as though i had not sent those 2 messages on Sunday. But i had seen the messages posted in the sent box after sending them.
So i log into the online Gmail mail account and also did not find those 2 sent messages. But all the other sent messages were still there.
i doubled checked all the settings and all were in sync.
Also, the inbox for recieving messages was functional as new emails were coming in a-ok this morning.
Nextly, i figured that maybe the email account on my pc crashed. So i deleted and recreated it. And it began to download the messages from Gmail.
All messages for the inbox were downloaded but not for the Sent Box.
Nextly, i restored a back up of the thunderbird folders, from a couple of weeks ago. And the inbox was still populated but nothing in the sent box. 100% empty.
Nextly, i did a test and sent out emails from the account. A copy of that message was then posted in the Sent Box - as expected. Also a copy of it is posted on the online Gmail Account
So what the hell is going on?
A) If a copy of the message i sent out a few minutes ago is now successfully posted in the "sent box", then why doesnt that box want to be populated with the other "sent messages" from online GMail?
B) While i have a number of email accounts between Gmail and LIve, this one that is no longer true and correct is the Main Account in Tbird.
C) While i restored the TBird boxes, i have done nothing to copy over the app data.
