How can I recover Yahoo mail downloaded with thunderbird?


I installed thunderbird, configured my Yahoo account, and it got all my messages from the inbox, but erased them all from there. Now I want to upload them, but I don't know how, I mean, take them back to the inbox.

One more thing: I'm using it in Windows, more exactly, in a usb, Mozilla Thunderbird Portable Edition.

Thought this was a Linux forum...ho hum...
Anyway, if you popped them and removed them from the server then deleted them locally they are gone.

the program took all the messages and removed them from the server, and i didn't find how to avoid it. i have them in the inbox of the program, but i want them back to the server.
and i made the question because if there is people who knows how to use thunderbird, is the linux community.
but if i shouldn't, ok. if it must be deleted, ok, i'll ask somewhere else. and i'm sorry if i broke the rules.
anyway, thank you.

The Windows comment was a joke...touchy

If you downloaded them then no easy way to put them back up there.....can you IMAP to Yahoo servers?

EDIT
Seems you can - set that up then you can get them back up there

damn! oh, damn! I found it, you have to create your account (POP or IMAP) and after configuring it, right-click on the account and select properties, go to server settings and there is the option os "leave messages on server". sorry, i never looked in the properties

now, what you said about IMAP, i found first that pop.mail.yahoo.com is for POP and IMAP, but later i found one as imap.next.mail.yahoo.com
anyway, I used both of them and with the seccond one I got the message of "time out", but i don't know if this means it's the right server.
