thunderbird message rules disappearing
« on: September 30, 2009, 08:50:57 am »
I am using thunderbird on an XP computer and every time I make a message rule in thunderbird (to sort mail into different folders) the rule stays for that day and the next day when I turn on the computer, all the message rules are gone. There is a folder that is labeled tmprules.dat that is empty. I did not create this folder. Are the rules disappearing to there or somewhere else? Can anyone help?
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

VL 6.0 SOHO KDE-Classic on 2.3 Ghz Dual-core AMD with 3 Gigs of RAM
