Urgent Urgent !!!! Mozilla Keeps All Your Deleted Emails !!!!
URGENT URGENT !!!! MOZILLA KEEPS ALL YOUR DELETED EMAILS !!!!
This happened to me right now. I told a friend who advised me to post to all (thanks, Rab!)
I thought I'd change from using Mozilla mail (1.5) so I gave Kmail a try.
I imported my "Inbox" file (the one with the envelope logo) from /home/xxx/./mozilla/default/xxxx.slt/Mail , size 45MB, to /home/xxx/Mail/, i.e., from the hidden Mozilla directory to the Kmail directory in my home folder.
Lo and behold!
To my infinite amazement and horror, ALL the emails which I though I had deleted in Mozilla (yes, and from trash, of course) were there, in Kmail, gazing at me. In Mozilla I had kept, over the last few months, about 300 emails, and now, in Kmail, I saw that I had more than 2000 !!!
I did the same with the "Sent" file, but first I opened it with Kwrite, and LO AND BEHOLD, after a few random searches, ALL the emails which I thought I had deleted (yes, and from trash as well) were there, also clearly displayed when transfered to Kmail.
(Using Slackware 9.1 on KDE and Mozilla 1.5, carrying my mail through other distros and from Mozilla 1.4)
PLEASE CHECK THIS YOURSELF !!!!!!!!!!
