Comment 42 David :Bienvenu 2007-05-17 09:01:47 PDT Keith, how big is the daily message? Every other time I download email the error message crops up. What I am seeing is merely the true report that some damage has occurred, and SM's inability to properly index incoming messages.

Hansen 2011-07-01 16:57:13 PDT I am now having severe problems with this bug in Thunderbird 5.0. If the answer to #2 is yes, were messages visible after the msf rebuilt? > Result....continued "Truncating" Errors. The recommended fix (delete inbox.msf) only works for the next one or two email downloads. Upon migrating things back, I see these folders as empty.

No matter if I do what it says - the next time it shows up again. Perhaps we need a "Stop processing rules" to avoid any additional processing if a rule has fired? This can happen when sharing mail between linux and windows and the partition containing your inbox has been mounted with permissions higher than the user running Thunderbird. Deleting messages merely flags the records as deleted in the file and creates a copy in Trash.

I have had no problems since! I realize that it's simply not possible to debug an issue such as this without something more qualitative. As you said, it's solved by deleting inbox.msf file (Or whatever msf file that correspond to the corrupt folder, but this issue always panic unexperimented users. I disabled my AVG incoming message scanner.

For information, what I did in Local folders was to create a subfolder called inboxbackup and move all the messages from the Inbox folder into that. When I look into the target mbox file (where in my case mails only go in and never move out), I do see stuff inside it where the new messages should Correct me if I'm wrong. One potentially contributing factor is the ~2GB file size of my Inbox.

So to reproduce this bug, one should filter to a very large folder. Source mozilla Ask a question Sign In English Search Home Support Forum Thunderbird Get message "error truncating inbox" ... IOW, assuming two criteria were met, the action had the message getting filed in the account, but not in a folder.

Comment 38 Phillip Rhodes 2007-04-15 14:15:25 PDT A few observations: This isn't specifically related to anti-virus, as I see the problem on a box that doesn't even have any anti-virus software

Some follow-up questions: 1. I also deleted .msf of destination folders defined in the filters.

Subsequent to my comment #14, I did indeed experience the problem. Comment 17 Andy Piesse 2006-07-31 14:47:07 PDT I have just started getting this bug. I have 65 filters and see this on average once every couple of months.

However it's not every filtered message that I get the bug box on. All anecdotal, to be sure, and I *will* follow up with more empirical data as soon as possible. I am very sure that that's the main factor, since I've seen it with all versions, even upgrading to 2 Beta2 didnt fix it - as I had hoped :-( Nonetheless, I'll ask Peter to comment, however.

That happens sometimes with this rapid-click workaround; I have to remember to only click twice. After much trial and error, I was eventually able to solve this by deleting the .msf, allowing it to re-build, and the doing a compact on Inbox _without_ fetching mail for I'd like to hear from others on this bug, once they check their filter rules carefully. my review here When a bug affects both the trunk and a still actively supported branch, I recommend mentioning the fact on the Whiteboard, so that if and when the bug gets fixed, the

Again, my reasoning is that we should have some internal mechanism for dealing with data file corruption (or someone might want to script an extension for it) to at least automate I have 16 folders under the inbox and 28 filters. But when I transfer to the Windows 7 machine, the first time I collect mail, I get an error saying that there was an error truncating the Inbox file after moving I then went back into Thunderbird and as the Local Folders tree did not display any Inbox folder.

When I restarted Thunderbird a new Inbox folder was not created as some of the posts implied it would be. Did you try simply deleting Inbox.msf, and letting the system rebuild the index? 3. I'd like to fix the underlying problem, but I think this should make things better in the meantime. Thanks again.

Messages began to come down right away, so that time, it must have been the msf which indeed became damaged in the crash. I have no extensions or plug-ins running on this system.

I have created a new Inbox competely (closed SM, renamed Inbox to AInbox, deleted Inbox.msf, and let SM create a new Inbox file).
