    Hi!
    I have saved all my important emails in Thunderbird, but today I found out that all of my mails are missing. I have lost all the messages and attachments. Can anyone of you suggest some method. I need to get all my emails back in my account back.

    Hi Mariya
    First Do not panic. I don’t think it would be very difficult to access your data back unless the files are not corrupted. Could I know which OS you are using for Thunderbird?

    Thanks for your reply…
    I am using Windows Operating System.
    Is this method variable for Operating System?

    No, the method remains the same for all the Operating System. I asked it because you need to know the file location of the Thunderbird.
    For Windows User– C:\Users\<Windows user name>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<Profile name>\
    For Linux/ Unix User– ~/.thunderbird/<Profile name>/
    For Mac User– ~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/<Profile name>/

    What you need to do is
    1. Navigate to the location of Thunderbird
    2. Open the Inbox file in Notepad or text editor.
    3. Locate this line “X-Mozilla-Status: 0004″(number may be different)
    4. Replace the number from “0004” to “0000”
    5. Save the file and check in again in Thunderbird account

    Thanks for providing this method. I did this and I am able to get my data back in my folder of Thunderbird. But the process is slow. I have many other folders, it would be very difficult for me to follow this process. Is there any software to retrieve the mails back.

    I can help you in that as well. Download SysTools Thunderbird to PST Converter and you will easily retrieve all the files in the tool environment. The tool is fast and secure to use.
