In renaming a folder & its' sub-folders, all emails disappeared. By changing the folder back to its' original name, got "reparse error". Since it was Thunderbird 1.0.7?, I downloaded 1.5 and rebooted PC. 
The new emails seem to be staying ok since this problem but I cannot get back all the lost email nor can folders be renamed. Can you please help?
