Customer Question
I have lost all...

I have lost all my emails in my inbox folder (all those emails dated before 11am yesterday). My sub-folders still have all their emails. How do I retrieve all my historical emails that were in the primary in-box?

Technician's Assistant: Have you checked for the lost email in your Trash and Spam folders?

I have. They were not there. And I tried to run a repair folder application by "right clicking the inbox folder"

Technician's Assistant: What email provider are you using (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, etc.)?

Mozilla Thunderbird

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

I think that is all. Thanks
