I had Sent folder in Cyrillic. I need to changed it to default "Sent mails" folder of GMail. After that Thunderbird dropped the Cyrillic sent folder even on the IMAP server (GMail), but hadn't moved the e-mails from this folder to new one ("Sent emails" folder). So, I lost about 1 Gigs of e-mails.

When I start Thunderbird it always ask to purge the mailbase to save about 1 Gig of disk space. I try to "Recover folder" in the INBOX several times but it hasn't finished yet. I don't understand what to do to recover sent emails.

Thank you.
