Background. Before this problem started, I accidentally moved the internal clock ahead one month, ie, I used the calendar/clock to detemine a date in Nov and forgot to cancel out. We have correlation; causal relation is unknown.

Now, I open Thunderbird and it takes a couple minutes for the Inbox to fill. Inbox has only a few mails inside. Then, GetMail may bring in say 10 new mails. Inbox is now bold Inbox(10) but the new mails are not seen inside. If I now Compact Folders, the new mails and many more older ones reappear. This behavior is consistent and repeatable. As far as I can determine, I have deleted all mails with next month dates.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Invoke Thuderbird, wait a minute or two while Inbox is empty and GetaMail is inoperative
2.Look in box, see a few message
3.GetMail, see bold Inbox(Number of new msgs)but messages are not in inbox (no change from earlier)
4. Invoke CompactFolders, see new mails in Inbox

Actual Results:  
If you can provide an email address, I will be glad to take a sequence of screen shots to shows exactly what is happening.

Shutdown mozilla and delete the inbox.msf in your TB profile in the account folder. Restart TB. Open the inbox. Does that help?
