hugh: that Tbird had a fundamental flaw in its structure in that if one message folder became corrupted all your saved messages were lost since they were in fact in one folder
I don't think that issue is a problem only in Thunderbird. I think that most, if not all, "older" email software was designed that way because they used "mbox" (as Steve has noted in his reply).

Current versions of Thunderbird (starting with version 38), offer a newer option, "maildir", in which each email within a folder (Inbox, Sent, user-defined folder) is a single file and this approach is supposed to help reduce mailbox/email folder corruption.


I've never use any of the Microsoft approaches for email, primarily because I don't trust Microsoft just as I don't trust any ISP-based email offerings...'-}}

steve: I never used TBird, but wasn't it based on Eudora and uses MBox standard filing for emails?
Yes...



>>Then again, maybe they've "improved" things to the point where corruption can truly take you out of the game.

As I noted in my reply to Hugh, "maildir" is supposed to help reduce, if not eliminate corruption issues...

No, I haven't looked at Thunderbird, but I will. I use my own domain for my emails. I was at 27 email accts with 150 mailboxes with about 100 filters. I just whittled my email accts down to 15 last week. I can easily whittle the mailboxes down. I hope to streamline it all over the coming weeks as I prepare to migrate to the new laptop. Now that I have the iPhone 7, I am chomping at the bit to migrate from OS10.6.8 to newer for syncing ease. I had hoped the iPhone's human interface would make me more comfy with the new laptop's track pad (that whole left & right click concept just annoys me). Sure enough my iPhone 7 worked, I am ready to migrate now... all I have left is my email client... I just wish now that I had the time to spend like three days & nights (nonstop/uninterrupted) to cleanup what is needed for that migration. So, I have been doing what I can over recent weeks as time permits. Keeping track of where I am at in the process has proved challenging.

I can just begin to imagine!!! Sort of like beating your head against a wall because it feels so good when you stop? '-}}


Do look at both Thunderbird and into using "maildir". There is what might be a useful discussion at dslreports on maildir in Thunderbird and Mozilla's wiki on both might also prove of value.


Keep us posted...

tia,

Yes, it was me and I still use and love ForgotIt. I paid the Shareware fee about a hundred years ago and have never been asked for another payment. When I got into strife forgetting my ForgotIt password and emailed the author, he was very quick to respond and sympathetic about my brain fart, but couldn't help me. I eventually found a clue elsewhere on the Mac and was able to get back in.

As for my iOS devices, I've never even looked for an app to store passwords. I don't actually seem to need it often there (still do major stuff needing passwords on the Mac, or have ones I use so often that I don't forget them. When I'm at home using my iPhone (in bed at night, usually) and need one I've forgotten, I dash into my office and use ForgotIt on the laptop.

I should probably try to find one for iOS, but know that I'd want to use the cloud so that I can synch my iPad and iPhone.
