Angus' Email Update

Right, I've tried figuring out how to reimport my Mozilla Thunderbird Cache back into Mozilla Thunderbird but it doesn't want to know. I'm sure this is down to me being a technological luddite (I am) rather than any other complication. It does mean though that it's still not visibile. If anyone out there local to me thinks they can help bring it back please let me know and we'll arrange a time and date and I'll treat you to a meal or something as a thank you. Sasha - looking at you in particular but anyone else who can help please throw your comments up now! :D

In the meantime I have given in and reactivated my Outlook program. It does mean that I'm missing all correspondence between 27th June until 6th November but it allows me to at least start working through the more recent backlog and getting back into gear and on top of a number of very important, pressing, issues as well as generally being more in communication again.

Even when I retrieve my lost mail I will now be sticking with Outlook as that had never failed me and I was a FOOL to ever leave it (I sound like a British gas advert don't I? ;p).

Anyway, I have several hundred mails to sift through that were on my server awaiting my attention. I binned many others whilst checking them online but still have a lot which are relevant and need my attention.

So, if you've been waiting for a reply from me you should now hopefully be getting one soon (if you sent me the mail after Nove,ber 6th that is...). Otherwise you'll just have to wait until the final part of my problem is resolved.

I now pass you back to your regular viewing.....

(EDIT: OK, Outlook doesn't seem to want to send anything out so I'll have to get THAT fixed too now...grrr)

You are just going to have to conduct al correspondence via text and LJ - simple as that!

what happens when you try to do the import? Does it error half way through?

I had errors when initially trying to import my email into thunderbird. What I ended up doing in the end was breaking it down into smaller archive files in outlook then doing the import. I suspect thunderbird has issues importing really large inboxes. (I have a couple thousand emails in mine from the Cam)

The original import from Outlook to Thunderbird was fine.

It's the recovery of the cached file I'm ghaving problems with. To be honest I don't think I followed the instructions very well. :|

I don't understand what you mean by cached file. Archives?

My entire email system went blank - profile, in box, all folders and sub-folders vanished. Somewhere on my PC in My Documents/stuff/morestuff/Thunderbird/whatnot are a number of folders and titles which relate to my lost files - this is what I mean by my cached files. Apparently there is a way to move them back into the actual program where I'll be able to read, reply, etc them again.

Does that make any sense?

Have you got a day off this week? Maybe I could come over and take a look...

I have Wednesday off but may be busy. Knowing my luck I probably won't be but I'm waiting to see.

If not, Wednesday during the day any good for you?

I have some experience with email software of different kinds and makes, so I would be glad to be of assistance sometime this week - do we have a gaming night this Wednesday, by the way?

Dom's in Wales this week so no games for us :(

I may actually be busy on Wednesday now anyway but will have a look in the old diary and get back to you to see if we can get together :D
