Corrupted Maildir. How can I push Thunderbird emails back to the server?
I’m transitioning from a VPS to DigitalOcean after my machine suffered a catastrophic failure due to a loss of power, resulting in a completely corrupted Maildir folder. Now, I’ve got two accounts in Thunderbird:
- Account 1, with everything still stored on my local machine.
- Account 2, with new email coming in.
Now, when I connect back to the corrupted host, because it’s running on IMAP, it dumps all of the local data in Thunderbird (good thing for local backups.)
When I move to DigitalOcean this week (I’m installing software to the droplet now!) I’d like to setup a new mailserver and a smooth transition, and as I’m doing it, it would be really nice if I could combine these accounts and retain the folders, and consistent email history that I’ve lost.
I’ll be using this guide:
Does anyone have any suggestions?
