Thunderbird hangs on: Determining which messages to Index

When Thunderbird starts up it hangs on "Determining which messages to Index" and fails to load any mail.
The account settings are still displayed but no mail.

I am concerned about not do anything that will stop me recovering the data!

I can read other data from the flash drive OK.

Can anyone recommend a procedure so that I can at least recover my mail?

Tom, Mine has been hanging on

Tom,

Mine has been hanging on "Determining which messages to Index" also. I just click on the "Get Mail" icon and it continues normally. This happens about every third time I start the program. I hope it doesn't lock up permanently.

I figured if it was serious somebody else would ask and get an answer. Wink

About every week or two I copy the entire flash drive to an identical "back up" drive. Before I do this I put the old "back up" on a SD card. It only takes a few minutes and I always have recent usable copies in reserve with most bookmarks, emails and documents.
