Translation of US-Americanisms (or only my own):

Moderator: Someone who knows the score, and kept in touch with developers.

Former: Someone who hasn't been posting in a long while
(3 years, as explanation for why never seen any more)

A "new review" of an old question:

If you mean that your Thunderbird/E8 "Mail data" is found intact,
although your TB/E8 account settings are not,
it turns out that it is possible to "re-attach" mail from
Thunderbird/E8 accounts whose settings have been lost then re-created:

"Reviving a deleted Thunderbird/E8 account"

If you also have the data from the entire top-level "Thunderbird" folder
under "user app data" in Windows, then restoring that entire folder
should restore both all data and all TB/E8 accounts and settings.

The current version of "E8" is 8.0b9, much improved since 8.0b5,
so I hope that you will update it, if you use it at all.
