Hi David,

Do you have shell access to the imap server? If so,
have you looked around in your home directory? My
imap servers are usually configured to store mail in
~/mail. Maybe your stuff got stuck somewhere else?

Also, do you have backups?


Thanks Lew,

Yes, I've been on the imap server in my home ~/Mail account grepping through
the files. That is how I discovered the dates of the last/first messages in
'archive' and 'inbox'. The curiosity is I have set:

[x] Keep messages archives in:
o "Archives" Folder on Rankin Law Firm
Archive options...
When archiving messages, place them in:
o Yearly archived folders
[x] Keep existing folder structure of archived messages

In the preview in the settings window, that shows files listed by year in the
archive, i.e.:


In the past there were folders shown under the archive folder in that fashion.
Now in tbird, the year subfolders are completely missing! So there is a ui bug
there in tbird. Here is a screenshot of the folder showing no folders:

In other thoughts - let me know and I'll work though them on my end. It looks
like archive handling was 'updated' sometime in the version race from 3->14 and
it looks like it might lead to data loss.
