24.5.0 - deleted mail account and have problems with a new false folder


I've been messing around with my Thunderbird data, so this problem is of my own making I think.

I deleted an e-mail account using my provider configuration area. It was an e-mail account that I had set up initially at his accession to this provider and contained only test messages etc and was therefore no other use.

I had implemented this e-mail in Thunderbird and after deleting the account with my ISP I then removed the account in Thunderbird. Everything seemed to be OK.

Now, to confuse the issues. I had already set up a list of folders under local folders for emails filtered into Thunderbird - I now moved their in my main account by click/drag and drop on the name of the account. Although it has taken a lot of time (and unexpectedly used a huge amount of bandwidth), the operation seemed at last to the end (even though it was really hard to determine until I finally found the activity monitor).

Now, to the point of this ad:

After all the above, I discovered that a false file was created under the Inbox of my main account, called "new % 20Folder = 0' that I read in the new folder-0. I don't know at what point in the above that this issue has appeared, but I * think * I must have dragged / dropped one of my folder moves on the Inbox instead of the account name field.

Now, dear readers, if you've got so far, most of my problem. I can not remove this folder when I try, I get the message

The current operation on the "new % 20folder-0"failed." The e-mail server for the account * answered the folder does not exist.

I tried a bunch of things, change the settings in its properties, etc, but I have no reason to delete.

Question is: How can I remove it?


I'd do it:

(a) check on the website of the the email provider to check if he had copied here and cope. Your mention of bandwidth suggests it is an IMAP-connected account.

(b) close Thunderbird, open their profile , and delete the offending file there. You need to browse your profile for a while understand its structure before doing anything rash.

In General, I discourage users to drag files just as you did. By all means, drag the content (even better, use to select, then right click and "copy to" or "move to"), but moving files is IMHO indefinite operation with unpredictable results. I've heard talk of users move a folder from one account to another and find that it always associated with (i.e. "belongs to") the original account.

  • Running a server of Freelancer with Windows XP and have problems with updates

    I run a server for a game called freelancer who has been released by Microsoft in 2003. My problem is that, in recent years, when I tried to get the server working after doing a clean install of WinXP Pro and get the updates, the server hanging and not start working properly. After several installations with various combinations of what has been installed after the OS, I finally got the server works, but get this: the server runs only on Windows XP with NO updates. WHY?

    I have a theory that I can't prove it on WinXP... When Freelancer was released in 2003, XP was new and she has no security features there now, and I think that one or more of the mess of updates with the server of DirectPlay 8 which is integral to the operation of the server. Of you Eggheads Microsoft must know what I mean... I don't know enough on XP to do more to make a guess, and it's my guess...

    Thank you for allowing me to escape,


    DirectPlay has been moved to support engineering and is an obsolete API. This was done mainly because of security problems and the fact that most of the features of DirectPlay is no longer relevant. TCP/IP is the ubiquitous network protocol and support for the head-to-head modem, serial port,

    NetBIOS, IPX and other suppliers is no longer relevant. Native API for TCP/IP in Windows is WinSock, and the usefulness of the library is so limited.

    There are technologies in Windows XP SP 2 or later version that provide server under protocols of discovery to manage the features of lobbying (P2P and PNRP), and many third-party solutions exist for matching. Future Microsoft technologies for this will be based on WinSock and not of DirectPlay.

    Support in future versions of the operating system will be determined primarily by the problem of application compatibility and will continue to be available through the Platform SDK for those supporting legacy streaming of DirectPlay applications.

  • I have a question if someone is there. I have build an interactive site and have problems with the presentation widget?

    I am creating an interactive website for a client developer. We are eager to build an interactive site where a potential buyer can see the rendering of the image of the kitchen and choose different finishes (floors, counters, backsplash ect.). I use the widget presentation stacked for interactivity. For example, the cabinets are all in a widget. The second widget contains the upper part of the counter. The third widget will contain the floors. All targets of widgets are stacked with various components of rendering and triggers are more towards the left to graphically create a kiosk. I have a question when I look in a preview of the browser. Sometimes the trigger buttons work and some times they do not have. They don't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. I need help! Someone has an idea?

    Thank you

    You must understand that triggers and targets are different... the triggers can be inside the goals as long as they do not belong in other triggers

  • I use Yosemite 10.10.2 and have problems with Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, it keeps saying it seems to be corrupted and I need to reinstall. How can I fix it permanently?

    Note, I've seen this problem since 10.10.0 and tried to follow the permissions situation where he'd just leave. I have reinstalled twice. There are no permanent solution?

    Hi Robert,.

    The Acrobat installer is built on a different technology than the rest of the apps and so the difference of update.

    Now that Acrobat is updated to v 11.0.07 you still get the original error "installation corrupted... reinstall?

    Regarding the update error, try to download the update manually from: Adobe - Acrobat: for Macintosh

    and install and check.

  • I'm a noob and have problems with several buttons on the pages of menu bar

    Hi all

    I'm building a site of basic database for my local community, and everything is fine until I try to add more script for the command buttons on the pages in the menu. The menu has 7 buttons that work, then on each of these pages are more than 6 buttons. The first page works fine but when I add the code to the following page to control its buttons access of undefined prop. error and continues to play through any chronology. It's the im code using control buttons on the pages in the menu. If someone could help that would be great.

    Nothing particularly wrong with the code you show it, it is more likely a matter of trying to affect a bad code.  If you can view the actual error message you get can narrow the problem... before that if you go in your publish the Flash settings section and select the option to enable debugging, the error message will have a bit more info in there.

    If you can describe this scenario where you have other buttons on other pages as well as how these pages differ from each other, which can be useful as well.  What are all the labels image linked to... the main timeline?  Is - this code on the main timeline or in the pages?

  • Starkey Halo AIDS have problems with the new ios 9.3.1

    My hearing aids Starkey Halo need bluetooth for streaming with my iphone. Worked fine until I updated my phone to ios 9.3.1. Help! I use this function by calls, the streaming of music and audio books.

    You must contact the support of Starkey to see if their devices are optimized to work with iOS 9.3.1. They would be the ones who you explain. If this isn't the case, you may have a problem, because Apple does not support downgrading from iOS. You might also need to re-pairing after iOS update. Starkey should be able to explain that for you as well.

  • Just bought Wndows Vista and having problems with the port for Palm 125

    I just bought a Windows Vista-based computer and have problems with getting my 125 Palm to synchronize with the desktop computer.  I get an error message saying: "No available Com1" what should I do?

    Thank you


    Don't ask me the procedures step by step that I did, but I finally success!  I uninstalled Palm Desktop and started from scratch.  I unplugged the Hot Sync cradle by the USB port, then I installed Palm Desktop from my drive and then update Palm Desktop on the Palm for Palm M125 site.  It still does not, I manually added a port and manually changed to COM1.  I then pressed the Hot Sync button and in the Device Manager, a folder has become available "device named" with Palm Desktop as a subfolder.  It is always active, I updated my computer for Palm USB driver.  Miraculously it worked.  Thanks for your help, but as usual everything it needed, it was patience and trial and error to solve the problem, since it does not seem to be a quick fix related this topic.
