No inbox in Thunderbird


Thunderbird has performed perfectly until today. Now it comes up with the Junk folder showing and though I can click "Send Mail" I cannot find the Inbox, so I can't receive mail (replies to this might reach me on my laptop).

Have you been editing anything? You should have ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/username/Mail/Local Folders/Inbox and ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/username/Mail/Local Folders/Inbox.msf
