Thunderbird 3 inbox ? says e-mail in it yet none

  User-FCAB1FAF-5F56-42E6-A2FC5454DEE486F8 10:52 19 Mar 2010


I am using Thunderbird 3 with Eset SS 4

Yet on the side panl where it lists inbox , junk , sent etc.

In the side panel it says inbox 13 which would mean 13 e-mails in there. Yet there is nothing in the inbox . How strange is that..

Any one else seen that ? If yes what did you do to fix it....?

Any one got any ideas?

Thank you

I managed to fix it right clicking on inbox rebuild inbox

very strange issue..

Has any one else had that though?

May be relevant.... Thunderbird doesn't truly delete things until the inbox (or folder) is compacted, even when they're not shown (they're still in the data file). So possibly it got confused about what to show and what not to show.

Incidentally, if not compacted, 'deleted' e-mails can take up a ridiculous amount of space.
