Unavailable UID Fetch

Recommended Posts

Using Thunderbird e mail on my standby laptop.

Sent a mail today & got the message in the title.

Did trial by sending another e mail to myself & it arrived & is shown as sent.

So questions:-

1 What does "Unavailable UID Fetch" mean"?

2 Did my first e mail get through?

What mail server did you use, what I can see this seems most common with Yahoo accounts with various fixes suggested from using the Thunderbird "compact folders" function to logging on to your mail webpage and having a good clear out.

 

Check this

 

As to finding out if it was sent I'd check on the appropriate webmail page and see what shows up there.

OK, thanks I've checked the compacting & it's set to copact more than 20 mb's

I'm using BT Yahoo a/c, if that is what you mean by mail server

Don't understand this statement:-

As to finding out if it was sent I'd check on the appropriate webmail page and see what shows up there.

Try logging in to your e-mail account on this page, you should be able to see what's in the sent folder from there.

OK, thanks done that & it shows + person I sent to has replied so I will forget about the message until later.

But should I clear down my "Sent" box to stop further messages?

Depends on how much is in there, if it's just a few pages then it shouldn't be a problem. If there are hundreds of mails going back years then culling the obsolete stuff is probably worth doing.
