ARE NOW TOTALLY GONE. MY INBOX IS EMPTY! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.restarted thunderbird 2. 3. Actual Results: cannot reproduce Expected Results: inbox still empty it should NOT have deleted my inbox when it performed the automatic update!!!!!! I need to know if my inbox can be recovered. If not, I clearly need a new mail program. I've been using Thunderbird since it was new..this is an absolute disaster. critical information is GONE.
It's possible the mail is still there. Read http://kb.mozillazine.org/Disappearing_mail And you didn't just set the inbox view to only display unread mail?
is this dupe bug 395065 (along with bug 402448)? unless is just a view setting (that makes it not profile issue..) also, bruce, please do tell if tried any solutions in link in comment 1 and if that clears things out
=> incomplete due to no response from reporter (I do hate to close a dataloss bug, but without more information...)
