I am panicked - seeing something I have *never* seen in an email
program. Have been getting strange behaviour that is interpreting
mouse clicks as move instructions - and it's been moving stuff around
without being asked to. Including entire folders.

I have a lot of messages in that missing folder that I really cannot
afford to lose, some of which came in since my weekly backup. Anything
before last Thursday I can restore without much difficulty, but I'm
worried about those since Thursday.

Any ideas?

They could just be hidden. Try going to View->Show Hidden Messages


Tried it. Nothing happened so far as I can determine. And among the
missing messages are 23 unread, which you would think would pop up
somewhere and announce themselves, if not the remaining several
hundred. I am at my wits end with this.


Ng Oon-Ee:

The other option is that you have an active search in that folder (the
search pane is top-right, just above the message list.


Sure hope there's yet another option waiting in the wings, because that
one didn't pan out, either. As far as I am able to tell there are no
active searches running at present.

Another question about the current release; I find that <CTL>-L 
("REPLY TO LIST") no longer works - is there a switch somewhere that
turns it back on? I've looked through all the preferences and cannot
turn up a reference to it....

Simply because you don't like to hear it, that doesn't make it untrue.
