Hoping I might get some help from other users who might have experienced the same issue. Using Thunderbird v60.6.1 on a linux platform.

To make more room in my IMAP email account, I have had to move multiple messages to my Local Folder. I have discovered, however, that by making such moves, the conversation links among messages have been broken. I do have threading turned on. I do understand that the breaking of conversation links is a bug that's been reported elsewhere, however, I was wondering if performing a rebuild of the global database would restore the links?

Any help / suggestions would be appreciated.

The Open Message in Conversation feature does require that Global Search be enabled, so rebuilding the database is the first thing I'd do if it's not working.

Hi, sfhowes:

Yes, I did see this support article earlier, and thanks for posting the link. I am just asking if rebuilding the global database will definitely solve my problem and restore the conversation links. In other words, has anyone else encountered this problem and solved it with the global database rebuild?

BTW, global search is enabled.
