View Full Version : Thunderbird problem

09-10-2007, 06:27 PM
Since the weekend the folders look empty. When I click on them it says something like 'building summary files' which takes some time to do then all the emails appear where they were. I have to wait for it to do this every time. How do I fix it.

Looks like this can happen if you dont compact the emails often (http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=331229)

Hi I did the compacting thing. Closed Thunderbird opened it again & still have the same problem.

And did u check the links I posted?

Yes, am trying now one of your links it is taking a while but the site said it might.
Thanks anyway. I'll be back later if it's still crazy. It's strange as I have never compacted before & have used this programme for about 3 years.

Which would explain why it might need to compact now.
