Hello -
I somehow was in the wrong window and started typing a message but Thunderbird was actually reacting to my typing as messages. As a result, the message I had highlighted seems to have disappeared. If I search for it, Thunderbird tells me it's in the Inbox but it doesn't display. It shows up on the gmail webmail fine. I know this is something very simple and stupid - can anyone help!?
thanks in advance

You sure it isn't just a blank email?

Right click on the Inbox folder name and select "Properties" from the context menu then click on the "Repair Folder" button.
