Boy, I'm sorry, but still nothing. Was the implication that it was hiding behind the message pane?
I don't think I can paste screen shots here, but if I could I'd send you one of that in-box, with the messages arranged by sender - this e-mail doesn't appear, and in fact I've used ctrl+A to empty the whole inbox a few times since we first identified this e-mail. I'd also send you a screen shot of the window for C:\Documents and Settings\Rob - Admin\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\3hqe9v10.default\Mail\mail.marketequip.com\Inbox.sbd, which is empty, even with hidden files showing.
Any other ideas? Seems strange - is it there, but not showing for some reason, or were we falsely led to believe that it's there when actually it's not...? Does the file pose a potential threat?
Thanks very much for your persistence - let me know if there's anything else I can do.
marketequip.com is simply the company website for my employer. If you're requesting that I actually log into our mail server somehow, I'm sure I don't know how...? Even at work, I use outlook (and the e-mail is not in that in-box either).
It's probably worth noting - would it have helped to mention it before? - that the mail browser on this computer is set not to remove messages from the server. Only the browser at work does that. Basically I've just set up Thunderbird to monitor my work e-mail from home when I'm not at work.
Open up Thunderbird on your computer and then click File---->Compact Folders
From "ThunderBird" help:
When you delete or move a message most e-mail clients simply hide the message and mark it as ready for physical deletion later on. These hidden messages still remain in the folder. Even emptying the Trash does not physically delete them. These hidden messages are not physically removed until the folder is compacted. If you don't compact your mail folders periodically, they can grow very large, and erratic program behavior may occur.
By clicking Compact Folders, that should get rid of that stubborn e-mail.
So sorry - sat down last night to do this and was pulled away by other obligations. I'm crazy busy lately. I know it would only have taken a few minutes but then I forgot to get back to it. Now I'm at a work computer and I won't get back to my house until Wednesday (traveling to Dallas). Hope it's okay to wait until then...? I'm eager to call it all good too.
Thanks for persisiting - I will do it immediately once I'm back at that computer.
