Not sure where I should post this, but this may help some folks in the future who have thunderbird indexing issues.

I'm glad you figured out the issue.

Q1: Beagle just doesn't index your .thunderbird directory
A1: Check for a .mozilla-thunderbird directory. Beagle will index this directory and ignore .thunderbird if it exists. Solution is to remove the .mozilla-thunderbird directory (assuming your data is in .thunderbird).

Q2: Beagle search tries to create new email account when email item clicked on. A2: If you have both mozilla-thunderbird application over thunderbird application on your system, Beagle will use mozilla-thunderbird. This will ask to create a new account and will create a .mozilla-thunderbird directory (which will break the searching as the above question). Solution is to remove the mozilla-thunderbird application.

Thanks for the great work with Beagle.

These would probably be good to add to the Wiki, in the troubleshooting

What distributions are still shipping a program called
mozilla-thunderbird and creating a ~/.mozilla-thunderbird directory?  Do
we need to continue to support those setups?
