Are you aware of the issues that can come up with Mozilla Thunderbird and tips to fix them?
Thunderbird is an e-mail database from Mozilla which aims at gathering all your e-mails and contacts at a single place. This means that if you use a range of e-mail accounts and you want to see all the mails at a single place, then you can use Thunderbird which will import all your mails in its database. But sometimes, you may find that some issues have come up with your address book and e-mails in Thunderbird. Let us see what issues can be and how to repair Thunderbird effectively.
Following are the issues that can come up with Thunderbird along with the tips to fix them:
Sometimes, when you open Thunderbird, you see your folders empty and you are not able to locate any e-mail messages in all or some of your folders. This is most probably because of damage to your .MSF mail index files. If this problem occurs after improper shutdown procedure last time, then closing Thunderbird and restarting the system will solve the issue. If not, then you will need to delete all .MSF files from your profile folder and restart the Thunderbird. If you still cannot find your e-mails, then you can use an email recovery tool to extract the messages.
Sometimes, you may accidentally delete an important mail. If you want it back, then the first place you should look out for is your Trash folder. If you have deleted the message from Trash also, then there are recovery tools and text editors to find and extract the particular e-mail. If you need to recover several deleted messages, then a recovery tool will prove to be of great help.
If your inbox is taking too long than normal to load your mails, then may be your inbox has become too heavy. It is advised not to keep unnecessary mails in the inbox after you have viewed them. If you do so, your inbox may become corrupt and you may end up losing your mails. It will be wise to create a new folder and move your read mails to it. In order to repair Thunderbird with such a problem, you can right click on the new folder and also your inbox folder and click on the Compact button. This will make more space available in your Thunderbird to allow the inbox to open faster. The same rule applies to other folders as well, including your sent mail folder and trash folder.
