If I move an email from the inbox to a local folder, and then I look for it with the thunderbird search engine I can find it, but when I want to open it this one seems to be empty. enter image description here This is when a try to open a mail called "Configuración de pentaho"

I found it but it seems empty. Anyone knows how to fix it?


The solution was very simple acctually:

First shut down thunderbird

go to thunderbird config folder:

 cd ~/.thunderbird/

open you profile folder:

~/.thunderbird  ls
88qcri7r.default  appreg  Crash Reports  profiles.ini
cd 88qcri7r.default 

and remove the global-messages-db.sqlite

then restart thunderbird and start checking the status of the indexing in on Tools>Activity Manager
