When trying to do so, the following error message appears: "The operation failed because an other operation is using the folder." The problem ended after: - Transferring the messages to be deleted to a temporary folder "temp" whithin the local folder in Thunderbird - Closing Thunderbird - Opening the profile folder - Erasing the "temp" file and the "temp.msf" file - Erasing any .msf files in the profile folder - Restart Thunderbird and waiting for the .msf files to be rebuilt (indexing) - Compacting the folders Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce
Does it work better in -safemode (http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode) ?
I will check if the problem reappears. At the moment it has been solved and I'm not able to reproduce it, although it lasted for a couple of months last time.
