Re: Thunderbird and trash

This is the first installation, never had previous versions.

I will try to find a previous version, I will have to disable the automatic update of TB, otherwise I find myself still with this version.

I'll let you know.

Hi Gene,


I tried to delete the trash folder of an account and the related Trash.msf file, the path file appears from the account basket properties, in my case:

C:/Users/Adriano/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/uaip436j.default/Mail/pop.mail.yahoo.it/

I restarted TB, and ... even worse, it did not erase anything anymore, it allowed me to correct the folder from the properties.

In the end I restored the 2 files from the Windows trash.

I do not know what to say, it seems that this happens also to other people, but not everyone.

Thanks to everyone anyway for the help.

I am always listening for other possible solutions.

Regards

Adriano

As I think about it further, uninstalling the program and reinstalling it may not accomplish anything. �Brian distinguished between POP3 accounts and IMAP accounts.� I don't use IMAP so I won't address that.� My guess is that if you uninstall the program, it leaves your folders on the computer if you are using POP3.� If there is a problem with the folder, uninstalling and reinstalling the program may accomplish nothing.� removing the folder and allowing the program to automatically create a new one when you run it may solve the problem.� I have no idea if going back to a previous version of the program would help.� I don't use Thunderbird and I don't know how you would delete the folder but if you don't want to use shift delete and are using POP3, deleting the folder may be the best thing to try as a first attempt to solve the problem.

Did the problem start immediately after the upgrade?� You may want to try to uninstall and reinstall the program or go back to the previous version and set it not to update.� Or you may want to try shift delete, which should also solve the problem.

Are use three male clients
Apple on the two systems Mac and iPhone
And use thunderbird and that is the only one that ever asks to compact messages
