I installed a new flash plugin (flashplayer6installer.exe), this suggested to update 4 components: mozilla 1.0, mozilla 1.1 de, mozilla 1.1 en, netscape 4.5 en. After finishing the install, it autostarted all 4 browsers. i closed them immediately by clicking the close-cross right-above-corner. after having made this install, about 75% of my inbox is duplicated, one mail with complete headline infos, bot not open-able, not property-able, not delete-able, and one real mail. About 25% of the inbox remained unchanged and correct. Total #mails is ~1000 mails. every new mail is counted as twice in the "new-mail-counter", but can be seen only once. every time I start mozilla it now asks me to compress the local disk folder (again and again, in former times it asked once and not again over weeks). I need a solution badly, otherwise I have to change the mail client. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.open mozilla mail-client 2. 3. Actual Results: see details. Expected Results: do not duplicate my local emails... count every new mail as 1, not 2 do not ask for compression on every start-up
to my statement "every new mail is counted as twice in the "new-mail-counter", but can be seen only once." this is not true - it happened just once, leading to a never changeable counter of (1) in Inbox - because there is no "new" mail that I could open... all subsequent incoming mails arriving only once, and are read-/property-/delete-able, so I won't need to change mail client immediately (good news).
Created attachment 99480 [details] more fotos mozilla_inbox2.jpg: hexedit of the appropriate position in inbox.msf (in next attachment, because is over 300 kb) mozilla_inbox3.jpg: hexedit of the 1st appropriate position in inbox mozilla_inbox4.jpg: hexedit of the 2nd appropriate position in inbox mozilla_inbox5.jpg: photo of the 2 mails where the destruction is starting (ordered by date). th2 2kb mail is OK, the 1kb mail ist the very 1st destroyed mail.
Hi, I added some photos with HEX edit of the appropriate places. I need a working inbox badly, because I have to do some ordering and cannot move/del the bad mails. please, can anyone send me the specs for the files "inbox" and "inbox.msf" for mozilla 1.1 (or at least a link to that specs docs), then i can help myself easily. i am a programmer for 19 years now. firstname.lastname@example.org THNX IA
No more help needed, thanks for all the many suggestions.

This helped.
