    Did a newsgroup search and didn't come up with any hits. If there's
    already a thread, please let me know.

    I'm using Thunderbird 1.0.7 in Fedora Core 3. And at some point it
    stopped saving my new filter rules. All the rules I made early on stay
    and work, but new rules I make work only so long as I don't restart the
    program. When I do, all the new rules disappear.

    Any ideas?

  2. Do you have read/write access to all files in your profile?

    Good question. in my home directory where I assume it's all stored, my
    ..thunderbird dir has me as owner and 664 permissions in all its folders
    and subdirectories.
    Thanks for the reply!

  4. You could try renaming msgFilterRules.dat. Note this will disable all
    your filters, so you would be starting over.

    Thanks for the tip! Recreating the existing rules once isn't near as
    bad as recreating a few every time I restart TBird. =)
