Hi all, smile.gif

Because of some problems with my CD drive a representative of my provider (orange.fr) instructed a system restore (last known good configuration). Unfortunately it didn't solve the original problem but even worse I cannot use Thunderbird anymore. The addressbook is okay but all my e-mails are gone and I cann't receive/send one.

Accounts are okay.

Any suggestions?

Hi garmanma, :flowers:

To begin with thanks for the response.

I think I will be able to use OE but haven't tried since I'm not a big fan of MS. At the moment I receive/send e-mails through my providers site: orange.fr. but I want to get my e-mails back so will go and look for them on my hard drive.

Hi Falu,

Here are a few things to try:
Recovering a Profile that Suddenly Disappeared,

Cannot Send Mail
Suddenly Cannot Connect
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
