Thunderbird 38.1.0

When I delete an email message from my inbox it goes to trash folder. If I try to move it back to the inbox it just disappears. I can not find it anywhere. I can move messages from the inbox to other folders and move them back to the inbox with no problem. I have reproduced this with 2 different email accounts on different systems. One is running Windows 7 and one is running Windows Server Standard R2. I also reproduced the problem in a Windows 10 system with one of the email accounts. I am using imap with Charter. When I test using Charter on line email, this works properly.

How can I troubleshoot this issue? Has anyone seen this?

  • I have observer delayed appearance in new mailbox after copy/move operation on IMAP accounts – AnFi Aug 14 '15 at 17:39
  • I have seen delayed actions also. However, I have waited days and these items never appear. – Larry Phillips Aug 15 '15 at 18:02
  • I also have a similar problem. When I try to move an email from Trash to INBOX, it only stays in the INBOX for about a second, then it shows up in the Trash again. The account is using IMAP, so I even tried using the mail server's web UI, but as soon as Thunderbird syncs with the server, the email is moved back to the Trash. I think Thunderbird is seeing some "deleted" flag on the message and moving the message back to the Trash. – Neopallium Sep 12 '17 at 5:05
