Perhaps. I'm leaning at this point to doing a fresh install of Jessie

Same thing I did back 6 months or so ago. Installing fresh fixed
everything. I would back up /etc for reference, but allow Jessie to do
it's own thing. If you want to keep your emails, running Thunderbird I
have a ~/.thunderbird folder. I would guess that you have a ~/.icedove
folder as well. Save that to your backup. Also ~/.mozilla to backup.
I also tried removing and recreating an account. When I did, I get an
error message after filling in the initial dialogue box (Your name,
email address, Password).

When it's borked, it's usually borked REAL GOOD! Fresh install. And, if
you have an entire drive to play with, I always create a large partition
for /opt ...sorta like the old /usr/local scheme but you're not dinking
with /usr . Then I create links from the usual user folders to there,
like Desktop --> /opt/user/ric/Desktop and so on with Music, Video,
Documents, Downloads and the rest. After a fresh install, just re-link
painlessly. I also link some dot-directories like email and browser
there. If you have more than one user, just add them to /opt/user. Piece
O CAKE! My opt partition is 1/2 of my drive and I wish I had made it

As you can see, /opt really gets used, especially with videos and
downloads. I wouldn't leave home without it. So I would give it 2/3 of a
drive, at least, in the future. A fresh install is now a breeze. :) Ric
