    Question Thunderbird 5 Inbox.msf Problems

    For the past week or so, when I get mail in Thunderbird 5 whenever an email is filtered to another folder I get the following message:

    There was an error truncating the Inbox after filtering a message to folder 'FACUG'. You may need to shutdown Thunderbird and delete INBOX.msf.

    This happens with the first one processed in each account. Once I have completed the reception of email, I then go and delete the Inbox.msf file, restart Thunderbird, and continue without further problems, until I get email again and have to go through the whole thing again.

    Is there some setting I need to change, or is there any other type of fix? Other than this, I like Thunderbird 5 fine.

    Try turning off "Compact Folders"? Tools > Options > Advanced > Network and Disk Space.

    cheers, Paul

    Tried turning off "Compact Folders", but that didn't work. Upgrading to 6.0, maybe that will work.
