A mass email download that I had in Thunderbird is gone. Haven't looked at them in 6 months, but they were there at that time. Not very tech savy. ?? Thanks

I did a mass email forwarding of about 3000 emails to Thunderbird about 2 years ago. I don't access them very much but they were there the last time I looked (i thought). I'm not sure what I may have done to delete them or accidentally move them. There are a few emails showing up. 2 are from before my mass forwarding and about 20 are after the fact. Maybe there is an archive somewhere? As far as IT goes, I'm not very good. Any clues how I might retrieve them or where to look for them on my computer? Appreciate the help! Thanks.

Hello, i auto process some mails depending on content. Currently i manually save mails into a folder as plain text files using an add-on. That folder is periodically scanned by my tool and some mails are auto processed, extract information and delete so far. I want to do more and create auto replies depending on mail content in the future. Furthermore processed and deleted mails must be removed from my mail account. And i dont want to select and manually extract all those mails that can be processed automatically.
Thus i need Thunderbird to somehow store all mails in a directory. Which my tool will scan periodically. The file format is less important (eml, html or txt), i can find a way to process it. I found some information about Maildir in Thunderbird. Tested it, but while the header is always readable the text body is often not.
Im stuck at that point. I am not sure how to continue. Maybe i have approached it all badly.
The addon im using to export mails is ImportExportTools NG from Christopher Leidigh, its doing a great job but even if i find a way to auto extract all mails it would be painful to sync back deletion actions, not to mention auto replies.
I hope someone here can give me a hint on how auto processing of mails is done by companies and how i might do it. I know deletion based on filters can be done with Thunderbird, but this is only the easiest tasks. I plan to do way more, it will be a continuous project, always adding new rules for auto processing specific mails.
