I'm using a VPN on my computer and phone and when I try to connect to the mail server, Thunderbird gives me an error saying that the mail server has disconnected. But when I disconnect from the VPN, everything works. This happens only with one mail server, on the others everything works OK even via VPN.

However, the the mail from this server is coming to my phone (where I use K-9 Mail).

I also tried to connect to the mail server via openssl, with the command "openssl s_client -connect mail.server.net:993 -crlf"

The connection is successful (when I'm on the VPN), but when I enter the command "a LOGIN my.username MYPASSWORD", it gives an error:

a NO [UNAVAILABLE] Maximum number of connections from user+IP exceeded (mail_max_userip_connections=20)

I have set the "Maximum Number of server connections to cache" to 1 in Thunderbird, I have set to check for mail every 12 minutes (it already was 15 minutes on the phone before), and it is still the same.

Any idea how to solve the issue? I am connecting to this server with the same username and from the same (VPN) IP only from my phone and my computer, so I find it really strange that there are more than 20 simultaneous connections...

Try again never works

Here are my Outgoing Server settings

Hi everyone,

I'm having trouble with my Thunderbird app (version 115.11.1) on macOS. I'm trying to add my Google accounts, but after I attempt to connect them, I receive the following warning message: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

I've checked the configuration multiple times to ensure it's correct. Here are the settings I'm using for Gmail:

Incoming Server (IMAP): Server Name: imap.gmail.com Port: 993 Connection Security: SSL/TLS Authentication Method: OAuth2 Username: [my email address]

Outgoing Server (SMTP): Server Name: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Connection Security: SSL/TLS Authentication Method: OAuth2 Username: [my email address]

I've also emptied all saved passwords and allowed cookies from sites without any exceptions. Is the version of Thunderbird I have still incompatible with Gmail? Or is there another issue that I might be missing?

Thanks for your help!

I am using Thunderbird in Windows 11 on an Intel NUC 12 computer. I am using Thunderbird in pop mail for gmail.com and mail.com. I save all important messages daily to Folders in Local Folders. Today I attempted to look for messages in one folder named Family and Friends and found that messages older than 2/14/2024 are missing. I checked other folders and found that they seem OK with messages going back 5 to 10 Years. I tried running repair but nothing changed. Any idea where these files can be? I do have backups of the app data for Thunderbird and am considering to try a prior version but I'm afraid I might lose new saved messages. If I tried to Archive messages, could this be the problem? I have looked in Archive and found very little. Any help would be appreciated. Frank

Please ignore this question. I found my older messages.

There is one correspondent whose emails come in, flash on the screen for a second and then disappear. I find it in Junk. I've got the email addres whitelisted on my provider's filters. How can I intercept this process. It's only the one address. So far. Can I whitelist address on TB? I've got it set to not intercept anyone in my address book and this address is definitely inmy address book.

I've been using a Rewards site regularly (3/4 times per month) for several years without problem. This weekend the attached pop-up appeared. It makes no difference whether I select Resend or Cancel, the program just re-displays the pop-up trapping me in an endless loop. The only exit is to close the window and abort the process. I was able to complete the task without any problem using Edge instead so it appears to be a Firefox specific issue. I haven't consciously changed anything since last using the site successfully on 24 May. Any help/suggestions appreciated.

I was in the middle of generating a long "reply all" to a message and wanted to jump to a new page when it would be printed. I absent-mindedly hit Ctl-Shift-Enter and the entire window disappeared and there was nothing in Drafts! Ctl-V just restores the last thing I added to this very long reply! I had been working on this for 90 minutes, doesn't Thunderbird continually update Drafts while working on a long email?

Hi Windows 10 64bits - Thunderbird 115.11.1 (but same happens with Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon). It is the 1st time I ask in this forum, so I hope I respect the rules... "Sometimes", in my e-mail "imapmail" sub-folders, "some" files with an added "-1" appear ("draft-1", "sent-1" , ...). They are always newer (modification date) than the file without the "-1". What are they ? Why create a "-1" that consumes space, and not over-write the existing files ? Is there a parameter somewhere in TB to avoid this behaviour (I closed TB, deleted them, but they "sometimes" reappear when I reopen TB ) ? Thanks in advance

400. That’s an error.

The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know.

Norton 360 updated last night and now Thunderbird isn't working.

I tried logging in to Thunderbird but it kept saying my certificate was wrong and refusing to check my emails. I tried to click "add exception" but it didn't help.

It also kept saying its own homepage was a security risk and blocking it.

I figured it was Nortons new update, but have no idea how to fix it. I turned off Nortons Email Protection, which didn't help. So I uninstalled Thunderbird and reinstalled it.

But now its saying it cannot login to the outlook server when I try to add an email account. I know the information is correct, all I can guess is that Norton is blocking it somehow?

Any idea on how I can fix this?

Good morning Windows 10, TB 115.11.0 32 bit. Multiple email accounts, some gmail, others like sfr, lol and free. All accounts use POP. All working before weekend, shut down the PC. Monday morning, opened Windows, all seems there except TB which has a screen with an Account Setup tab inviting me to set up an existing email address. Close that tab and the attached screen image appears, open tabs blank, no accounts pane on the left, no emails, no local folders. Nuffin. Restart TB and Windows, twice, still Nuffin. Look in Profiles, yes, under Mail all profiles appear to be present and the correct size. Going to gmail’s on line email system shews account open and receiving email normally. I had a problem a month ago after a TB update when all accounts were present but no emails were displayed. I changed the password to 0auth and recovered my emails. That took three days to resolve and I lost a business client through the delay in responding. Today I must file several court documents or I shall be in deep poo. Any suggestions how to recover the left hand accounts pane and see the accounts and folders will earn my undying gratitude.
