Q: Solved: Where are email folders?

HI all. I have a PC and a laptop both running Windows 7 and Thunderbird/Firefox. I have a bunch of email folders on my PC, where I hold important emails, that I would like to copy over to my laptop when I travel, the way I do other files I need to have with me at all times. I can't locate the email folders on my PC. Is this possible to do and can someone tell me how?

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Where are email folders?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Where are email folders?

See here:
http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/profiles?s=profile&as=s
"Backing up a profile
To back up your profile, simply shut down Thunderbird and then copy the profile folder to a backup location (such as an external disk or drive).

Moving a profile
Occasionally, you might want to move a profile or tell Thunderbird to use a profile stored in another location.
Shut down Thunderbird.
Move the profile folder to the desired location. For example, on Windows XP, move the profile from C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default to D:\Stuff\MyMailProfile. (If you are reverting to a backed up profile, this step isn't necessary. Just note the current location of the profile you want to restore.)
Open up the profiles.ini file in a text editor. The file is located in the application data folder for Thunderbird:
On Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000, the path is %AppData%\Thunderbird\
On Windows 95/98/Me, the path is usually C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Thunderbird\
On Linux, the path is ~/.thunderbird/
On Mac OS X, the path is ~/Library/Thunderbird/
In the profiles.ini file, locate the entry for the profile you've just moved. Change the Path= line to the new location.
If you switch from a relative path to a non-relative path, the direction of the slashes may need to change. For example, in Windows, non-relative paths use backslashes, whereas relative ones use forward slashes. Change IsRelative=1 to IsRelative=0.
Save profiles.ini and restart Thunderbird."
It would be much simpler to use web mail like Gmail, if that's an option.

I thought my mail folders would be in the computer. When I changed from MSN to Road Runner their search is not finding MSN files. Are they forever gone along with the uninstall of MSN?
 

A:Solved: Can MSN email folders be recovered?

Which version of Windows are you using?

Maybe, if data recovery is available to you.

Go to www.hotmail.com .
Try to sign in using your MSN email address [ for example: [email protected] ]
and your MSN password.

If the files are stored on your computer, don't use the computer. The area on your hard drive, in which the MSN folders may be stored will become available to other files, folders, programs.

Contact MSN. Explain the situation. You may need to re-activate your MSN account. They may let you do it, for free.

i did a search for dbx files and found them, i also looked in my recycled bin and found them there ( i can't remember if their were .bak or .dbx files though) but i thought if followed the instructions by copying them to a seperate folder i created on my desktop - then this is where it gets messy - i somehow right clicked on 1 of the files and i think when i clicked open, it asked me with what program and once i searched the different programs available there seemed to be no way back to undo this - until then i think it said this file opens with an "unknown program" - so i had to pick one and when i did it changed the look of all my files in the folder and the option to "restore" is no longer there.
Is there any hope???

I have a weird problem with almost 4,000 Yahoo webmail folders I want to get rid of and I am not going to take the time to empty each one before I delete the folder. No idea how this happened, an email client screw up maybe, but my entire email folder structure was cloned and nested about 4 deep. in eMClient I cleaned it up by moving all the bad/redundant stuff to Local Folders then deleting it. For some reason, it would not delete from the IMAP server. Now it's in Trash in the email client but still will not delete. It does for a few seconds, then the folders pop back one by one and are grayed out with no contents.

So, I figured I'd get rid of it from Yahoo webmail since it's (I assume) more tightly linked to the server...maybe. I dunno. But in Yahoo, all the junk I want to get rid is not in Trash but a place called "Folders". All 3,840 of them, folders that is, not individual emails. Oddly, I just do not have the patience to open each folder, delete contents, delete folder, go to next, repeat......Zzzzz. I know how to empty a folder by clicking the boxes, that's no help.

So, is there some sort of wizardly way to tell Yahoo mail to just "damn the torpedos" and delete my friggin folders? Absent a suggestion there, how do I contact Yahoo and actually speak with a human or is it even possible? I'm told it's a Yahoo server issue, not an ATT issue.

Thank you!

A:Need Help Importing Email Storage Folders

Hello Steph, and welcome to Eight Forums.

If you meant that you used Windows Live Mail, then you could also install it in Windows 8.

Afterwards you could import your messages back into Windows Live Mail. This is assuming that you exported them using the method below first.
Windows Live Mail - Export and Import Email Messages - Windows 7 Forums

Windows Live Mail - Export and Import Email Accounts - Windows 7 Forums

Windows Live Mail - Export and Import Contacts - Windows 7 Forums

If not, then you should be able to just drag and drop the .eml files from your backup into an inbox in your email client program to add the messages back.

Hope this helps,

My desktop has an SSD (C:) as the primary/boot drive and a 1TB HDD (E:). Because SSD's deteriorate with every write, I have tried to keep items that are constantly added to or deleted (working files) on the HDD. I just noticed today that the storage folder for my Windows Live Mail were on the SSD, so I changed them to the same location (/Users/(name)/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Live Mail) on E:. However, strange thing happened when I did that. The Inbox emails all re-downloaded from Comcast's server. . . but the emails I SENT (Sent Items) did not all come over. I got only the sent emails from mid 2013 to the end of February 2014 on BOTH of my email accounts (personal and business).

Dear all,

First, my HD was damaged last week and had been repaired by a data recovery lab., some of my Netscape email folders can not be displayed in "Communicator", for example : "E-Statement" folder with "SBD" extension and "E-Statement.snm" can be found in the "File Manager", "E-Statement" without extension is missing, is it the reason this folder can not be found in "Communicator" ? If do so, how can I re-build this "E-Statement" file ?

Seondary, during my HD was in the lab., I saved my email in another HD, now, how can I add those emails to my previous emails folder ? I don't want to use "Forward", because the sender will be changer.
Thanks for you help and early response.
vlei

Does anyone know if there is a "folder limit" or "size limit" in Windows Mail?? I have hundreds of folders with e-mails located inside and when I had to rebuild Windows Mail because my spell check didn't work, I backed up my e-mail folders in a empty folder on my C drive as well as on my back up drive and when I went to import them all back, I only was able to import a portion of them.. Others, when I go to import them manually, they say they imported over, but when you open the import file, nothing is there.. Any suggestions on how to get the rest of my folders to import over?? Thanks kolmtiger

Switching from XP to Visa, the new windows email program has folders now instead of identities. I have 2 separate email identities (accounts) with outlook express, one for home and one for an organization I run. This made it nice and easy to switch between them before and keep everything separate. The "easy" transfer did not move my email messages from either account so I will have to do it manually. But, I have 2 sets of messages and 2 contacts lists, how do I keep these separate in Visa? Seems like it will put them all into one inbox and contacts list. The help was worthless!

Thanks.

My desktop has an SSD (C:) as the primary/boot drive and a 1TB HDD (E:). Because SSD's deteriorate with every write, I have tried to keep items that are constantly added to or deleted (working files) on the HDD. I just noticed today that the storage folder for my Windows Live Mail were on the SSD, so I changed them to the same location (/Users/(name)/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Live Mail) on E:. However, strange thing happened when I did that. The Inbox emails all re-downloaded from Comcast's server. . . but the emails I SENT (Sent Items) did not all come over. I got only the sent emails from mid 2013 to the end of February 2014 on BOTH of my email accounts (personal and business).

Why? I looked into the old storage folders on C: and they're empty. What happened to the Sent Items after February 2014?!
