Thunderbird forgot my profile! Tuesday, February 06, 2007 |

Today thunderbird forgot my mail profile.
I Launched thunderbird and was taken back to see my profile was gone!
i almost have 2.5 gigs of mail over the two years and the thought of losing them gave me a minor attack!

Rushed immediately to check my profiles folder under application data\thunderbird and with a sigh of relief found my mail data
was still intact.

Checked the profiles.ini to find no profiles listed there. after a bit of searching on the net, i created a new profile and voila,
had the following piece of info. in the profiles.ini


updated the path and the profile name to match that of my previous profile and there it was - heaved a sigh of relief -
my profile with mail and data all intact!
