But all of a sudden it's showing up as

What did I do? All that I did today was move the storage folder to a new drive.

How do I get the old format back?

Thanks!!!

Thanks for that... but it seems to imply I need an extension to restore the previous header format. But TBird always had it as a default. So what could I have done when I moved the storage folder that changed anything? All I did was rewrite the new file address in

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\profile.ini

to

[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1
[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=0
Path=X:\Documents\MAIL\THUNDERBIRD MAIL\Profiles\3xojffbk.default
Default=0


But I should note... that I seem to have lost the find duplicates extension. Don't know when. Maybe there's some connection.

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

It seems the Respond With Header and Remove Duplicate Messages extensions were somehow deleted.
