For the second time in six months when I went to open my emails I was greeted by a message inviting me to set up a new account, as if it were the first time I had accessed Thunderbird, and all my emails had disappeared. How can I find these eamils? Are they stored in a folder somewhere on my hard disc? Is this a common problem with Thunderbird? I had been using the program on my old computer for quite some time without any problems.

Bear in mind Thunderbird mail lives in the above folder by default, it's entirely possible to set Thunderbird up to use a profile from anywhere on the drive. On that basis the storage files could literally be anywhere. Not like Outlook Express which theoretically lets you move the files or Windows Live Mail which doesn't let you move the files.
