@ bevills1 , I’m working in the dark on this as I’ve never had Thunderbird .
Is it possible that you have “Blocked” these email addresses ?
I don’t know why even then they wouldn’t go to a “Delete” folder .
That being said this is how I interpret using the link process but bear in mind I don’t have a way to test it.
1.Open your Thunderbird profile folder. Generally this folder can be found under C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles.
2.An eMail that was delivered to the Inbox, subsequently deleted and emptied from the Trash. The[B] traces of this eMail should still be found in the Inbox folder[/B].
3.open the folder for the respective eMail account, then launch the [B]Inbox[/B] file without the [B].msf[/B] file extension in a text editor, such as Notepad.
- For the correct file type it should just say â€œfileâ€, rather than â€œMSF-fileâ€.
5.To recover the eMail and make it reappear in its original folder, change the X-Mozilla-status to 0. In the example pictured below it says â€œX-Mozilla-status: 0009â€³. The result should say[B] â€œX-Mozilla-status: 0â€³[/B].

[B]x-Mozilla-status: 0009 [/B]
This should be changed to : [B]x-Mozilla-status: 0[/B]

The missing email should now be in the Inbox .
For you it may be the[B] Junk[/B] box instead of the Inbox .
Since the email was originally in the Junk box.
You might try the Junk box first & that is where the missing email should be if this works.
All this is for is to recover the already missing emails .
I don’t know how to fix the problem.
My suggestion after you have recovered these emails is to “Save” all the emails you want to keep.
Uninstall Thunderbird & then install the newest version .
Sometimes that fixes a corruption problem.
Good luck . I wish someone with Thunderbird had posted more information.
