I recently installed Thunderbird as my e-mail program. When I opened the program this morning, all the messages that were in my Inbox are gone. I have checked all the folders...nothing.
I've tried to read through some of the support suggestions, including drilling down to the folder where the e-mails are stored for Thunderbird. I can see that there is a file marked Inbox that has 2529 KB, so I'm assuming the missing messages are there. I don't know how to open the file or how to restore the messages. And why would the program keep removing the messages from my inbox? I've checked my settings and have removed the check mark from the option to archive in case that was the problem. I'm just learning the program so I'm not sure what to check next.
Could someone please help? I probably haven't explained this very well, so please let me know how I can provide more information.
Thank you for any help.
