I have a client who uses the Thunderbird email client.  It appears that one of the mailboxes/email addresses is corrupt.  When he tries to read email in that mailbox Thunderbird crashes.  However, this doesn't happen with any of the other mailboxes/addresses.  

I think I'm going to delete the mailbox/address and re-add it but wanted to make sure the email currently there won't disappear.  And, is there a way to re-sync the old emails to the newly setup address.

From my reading about it it seems that that is possible since there are separate files for each mailbox/address.
