Description

13 years ago
Outlook's Journal maintains links to application files that you work on, noting
last time they were worked on, and for how long.
If you have any deleted Journal entries (in the Outlook Deleted Items folder),
the import process deletes the files that are targets of the Journal links.
I was unfortunate enough to have deleted all my Journal entries not long before
running the Thunderbird install/import, and have spent hours recovering
spreadsheets and documents that TB deleted.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
