Re: Emails disappear on transfer to another folder; in a different folder - all deleted

The Import and export tool allows you to create a format which can be easily imported again. It has other formats, including a HTML listing (this cannot be imported).

 

I have found that manipulating the profile folder, can cause unexpected results.

Thanks for the help, Andy. So, if I had executed such a backup, and the entire contents of one folder were suddenly deleted off the server, would I simply unzip the backup, open it in a separate manifestation of Thunderbird, and somehow reload the saved contents of the folder back into the current existing (empty) folder?


I don't believe TB syncs to the server directly as the server controls the account. However it looks to be possible to upload messages should the need arise :-
