Where is all my email? I just installed Windows XP Pro, Firefox, and Thunderbird on a brand-new hard drive. I then copied the entire contents of the C:\Documents and Settings\Username (including hidden files) from the old hard drive onto the new one. Hallelujah, all my cookies, bookmarks, and extensions in Firefox work like a charm. Thunderbird, however ....
I mean, good lord. It's like a whole other development team worked on this app.
OK, lame joke, but even so - why is it so easy to migrate Firefox, and such a PITA to migrate Thunderbird????
So, in Thunderbird, all my account settings made it over, but I can't see any IMAP folders or existing emails in my primary email account (the one, of course, which matters the most) and I can in the other, secondary account. Screenshot is here.
If you'll notice, on the primary account there's no way to grow the directory tree the way there is on the secondary. Additionally, when I click on the "Read Messages" icon from the primary email root window, nothing happens.
Thoughts? Advice? I'm perfectly willing to delete / re-transfer whatever files are necessary to make this work. The old hard drive is fine, so I can also trial-and-error whatever suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance!
