Local email database corruption


Mailspring’s local database is corrupted and I can’t rebuild it.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

Try to launch mailspring?

Expected Behavior

Mailspring launches


I get this notification image

“Quit” does not do anything
“Rebuild” does not do anything.
Force Closing the app and restarting results in this popup


Mailspring 1.9.1
Windows 10 Education 20H2
Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

Additional Context

I am happy to share logs but not sure how to get them to you, rebuild and close do not do anything for mailspring.


i have the same problem…
Is there any process?

I did not find one, and development on Mailspring seemed to drop off a bit so I moved to eM Client for now

Sorry for the late reply.

I would try to delete the mailspring data folder and re-configure the mail accounts.

I have the same issue on Windows 10 Pro. How can this be fix?
