User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/2009032711 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Firefox/3.0.8 Build Identifier: 22.214.171.124 It's the second time that this happens. I have several subfolders, and many daily messeges go to thoses subfolders (work logs, more or less 300 per day). One of the subfolders had more than 12 000 e-mails, and I erased more than alf. Did the same to another subfolder. (the thunderbird didn't crash) When I returned to the inbox, I saw the mails but messeges were blanc. I restarted thunderbird and all the inbox messages were gone. I closed thunderbird, erase all the .msf and started thunderbird. Inbox is receiving fine the new messages, subfolders are ok, BUT I LOST ALL MAILS FROM INBOX. inside ".mozilla-thunderbird/yqk73t4h.default/Mail/Local Folders" Inbox has just a few Kbs. (I believe to be empty) inside ".mozilla-thunderbird/yqk73t4h.default/Mail/my_mail_server" Inbox still have a fez MBs. (I believe to contain my mails) I replaced the small inbox with the big but thunderbird can't open it. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.erase a big quantity of mails from a subfolder (7000) 2.erase a big quantity of mails from another subfolder (5000) 3.wait until it is done and return to inbox Actual Results: Lost all e-mail that were not in a sub-folder It happened the same more os less one year ago with another version of thunderbird.
Hi, dod you use pop or imap ? do you have big .smf files lying around your folder ?
Hi, No, there are no big .smf files here, the biggest file is a subfolder with 30 MB. Most of my work e-mails are logs, very small text files that doesn't use much space. I'm using pop3. joao
I think ludo meant .msf files :) if you deleted only the .msf files, you should not have lost your inbox. anyway, if you are using pop, shouldn't your messages still be on the server?
Yes I meant .msf files those can be deleted without issues. >anyway, if you are using pop, shouldn't your messages still be on the server? That depends on how you configure your pop account.
joaopcrodrigues, is this reproducible? have you seen this again?
