Hi,

I've setup my gmail accounts with ThunderBird on Mx-Linux-21 but Address Book is not working as expected.

I've my Preferences/Composition Addressing setup as shown in SS but outgoing addresses are not showing up in Collected Addresses or anywhere else in my Address Book. In fact, Address Book appears to be empty.

Appreciate your guidance in this regard.

Thank You.

Regards, Aksh

Chosen solution

I found following solution on the forum and it worked. Just that history.mab is replaced with history.sqllite and abook.mab with abook.sqllite now...

If Collected Addresses, or any other address book, is corrupted, the usual remedy is to export the existing contacts to an LDIF file, then open the profile folder (from Help/Troubleshooting Information, Open Folder), close TB, delete history.mab (Collected Addresses) or abook.mab (Personal Address Book). Upon restart, TB creates a new, uncorrupted book, and the LDIF file can be imported and the contacts moved by drag-and-drop to the new book.
