How to thunderbird recover emails?


Good day Jeffrey

For the following steps to work you must make sure that you didn`t compact your folders.

If your hidden folders is not open do this.

 In windows 7 open the explorer, go to organize, folder and search options, click on the view tab and tick show hidden files and folders and drives.


Then go to explorer, click on C: (in my computer), click on your Windows username, then App data,Thunderbird, then profiles, then profile name.Launches the inbox file without the .msf file extension in a text program like Notepad.

Opening files can take a few minutes.In the picture below is X-Mozilla-Status: is 00009.

Set the X-Mozilla-Status to 0.

Save the file and open Thunderbird. Your deleted mail should be in you inbox.

hopefully this steps will get your mail back.
