    Re: Invalid Offset in index record

    What was 'copies'?

    You need to give us more information:

    What was the name of the old folder and how many messages were in it?
    When you copied the contents of the old folder into the new folder, did the new folder then contain the same number of messages?

    Did you try IDW's method before attempting to copy the messages into a new folder?

    Just so you know, a Pegasus Mail folder comprises two files. The name is the same for each, but the extension is different. The file filename.pmm  contains the mail data. The file filename.pmi is an index of the contents of the .pmm file. When you open a .pmm file, it reads the index and displays the subject of each message. Opening/viewing a message is achieved by referring to the .pmi and know where the message is in the .pmm

    When you right-click a folder and choose Properties, the filename (.pmm) is displayed.

    Finally, did you create a backup as instructed?
