I sooo hope someone can help me! My email program is Thunderbird 24.4.0. Yesterday, all 650+ messages disappeared from my 'Sent' folder, and no newly written messages are getting stored there now. But I know those messages are somewhere because 1) if I use the search function in Thunderbird, it will turn up the one I'm looking for AND 2) if I click on "Properties" for the Sent folder it tells me the number of messages that should be in it, and as I write more messages, that number increases. So those sent messages are in my computer somewhere, but I can't find them. The only other hint I have is this: when the search function finds me a particular sent message and I right click on it, the drop down menu gives me many options, among them "Move to 'Miscellaneous' Again", which suggests the message was in some folder called Miscellaneous. But wWhen I search for such a folder in the whole computer,though I find a number of them. most are known to me and contain other things. But there's one called Miscellaneous.msf, which I can't open, and when I search the web for a program that will work, I get "Windows does not recognize this file type". Does anyone have some suggestions about how to recover my sent messages as a group and get them back into their proper place?
