Lost my saved emails in Thunderbird

Q – I have saved all my important emails in Thunderbird. Now I am unable to find these missing files. Can anyone suggest me any method to view the saved emails in Thunderbird?


There is no need to worry about the lost emails in Thunderbird. You can simply access these files unless they are corrupted.


There could be several reasons behind email disappeared problem. It is possible that conversation view hides the messages. Therefore, to confirm, go to view > messages and view > threads and make sure that both are set to all. After that, go to view > folders and change it to all.


Make sure that the anti-virus program should be turned off. Sometimes the anti-virus creates an issue in viewing the emails correctly.


I have tried all the above-suggested methods but unable to find the solution to the issue. Can you please suggest any other effective solution?
