Arrghhhh! You go to look at your gmail with Thunderbird (or Shredder if you’re running the TB3 beta) and it just spins and spins and hangs up and you can no longer access your email via Thunderbird. I’ve had this happen with several versions of Thunderbird and I thought I’d tried everything – kill the account and reinstall, try a new profile, etc etc. Nothing worked.
This last time, I also got the message
The current command did not succeed… The mail server responded: No messages match. (Failure).”
- Put the cursor over the Inbox in the offending account and right click (Windows) and select “Properties”
- Then just click the Rebuild Index button
I wish I had known that a couple years ago!
