User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 I recently converted from Mozilla 1.7.x to Thunderbird 1.0.2 (20050317) at both home (Ubuntu Hoary) and work (Red Hat 8). Both places I had profiles with multiple POP accounts (2 at work on different servers, 3 at home with 2 on the same server). Rather than using the import function, which has not worked well for me in the past, I used the method described below. In both cases I lost email because the message filters did not import correctly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up accounts in Thunderbird with same settings as Mozilla. 2. Copy address book files and mail folders to corresponding places in Thunderbird data, including msgFilterRules.dat 3. Retrieve email in Thunderbird. Actual Results: As filters were encountered, Thunderbird would report it could not find the folder and was disabling the filter. I could then go to the message filters and reset the folders. However, when I looked for the messages that triggered the filter, it was nowhere to be found. Expected Results: When I have encountered this behavior in the past with Seamonkey, messages always ended up in the Inbox and could be filtered once I reset the filter. If filters cannot be properly imported as described above, at the least Thunderbird should drop the messages in Inbox as well when a bad filter is encountered.
