New reinstall of 78.4.3 shows the Inbox with a circle going around all the time.

What is this???

Did you copy in settings from a previous installation or add the accounts from scratch?
Who is the email provider?
How is the account set up, as POP or IMAP? In Thunderbird the menu path is Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings->Server Type at the top right of the dialogue.

I think I just fixed it. Like my other question, I installed 78.4.3 AND tried to use MozBackup to restore my settings. This does NOT work BTW... So I uninstalled and removed all registry entries (IOBIT uninstaller). Reinstalled again and all is just fine now.

However... I had to reset my PC and reinstall Windows. I have a Windows.old directory. Is there a way to recover all my old email?

Thanks in advance.
