I can delay the sending of a message. I am also using Wetransfer as the large file transfer agent. Is there a way to create a message for later sending AND prevent the upload of the large file to Wetransfer.com until later. So far, when I create the message the upload starts right away. You might ask why I need this functionality. I have a satellite internet connection with a data transfer limit. The limit does not apply if I send between 2am and 8am. So I want to find a way to delay the upload of the large file until that time window, but I don't want to get out of bed to do it. (smile.)

(Thunderbird, Windows 10) No new mail notification or sound

I'm using latest Thunderbird version on latest Windows 10 and I'm not receiving a sound or notification through the Windows 10 notification center when Thunderbird isn't open. All the options for alerts in Options > General are turned ON and Thunderbird is also set to automatically check for mails. Whenever I open Thunderbird it shows latest, new mail just fine and also plays the sound like it should.

I don't if it's normal but I noticed Thunderbird isn't present as application in Windows notifications & actions settings but "Mail" is there (that's the default Windows 10 mail client). Turning on notifications for the default Windows 10 mail application doesn't make a difference. Thunderbird is installed on my PC and set as default mail app in Windows Default apps settings. Also, I have set my system tray to always show all icons.

How can I receive notifications again for Thunderbird when it's not open?

THANKS!

I discovered that E-mail suddenly from my sister started to go directly to the junk file. I've moved them to the inbox several times, but each time within a few minutes the same E-mails disappear from inbox and go back to junk file. Once in the junk file they become marked as "not read" even though they were read. This only started in early Oct and I haven't notice it occurring with E-mail from anyone else...yet. I fear this will happen with any E-mail she sends and could start happening with E-mail from other people. Why is this happening and how can I make it stop? Can someone please help me? Thank you.

I send a LOT of images because of my profession. When I get an attachment in Thunderbird it's the most frustrating thing to have ONLY two choices of how to view my attachments.. Either they are HUGE inside the email or they are listed as a file name. This doesn't work for me.. If I need to forward or pull one photo in the course of my job I am forced to do extra steps to find it and it wastes time.. Please tell me there's a way to change this.. This make the program unusable for me. I was a huge fan of live mail but I have been forced to find an alternative.. there's got to be an option for this.. Thanks in advance for any help

At startup, I need Thunderbird to open to the list of messages in the Inbox without user interaction. Every time. Nothing else.

I need it to look like the attached screen capture.

I am running 78.3.1 (32-bit) on Windows 10.

I was using the following process but it quit working on a recent update:

1) Open Thunderbird and click on desired mail folder.

2) Close TB.

3) Use Windows Explorer to navigate to where "session.json" file is located. Mine was, "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\7a4c8p7s.default", but yours will be different. You can locate it by right-clicking on the mail folder from inside TB, then click "Properties". Make sure TB is not running before proceeding to step #4.

4) Right-click on "session.json" file then click, "Properties". Check mark the "Read-only" attribute box then click the "OK" button.

Hello, guys

How can I resize the columns to make stars and attachment icons visible? I don't know what's happened and to say the truth I didn't notice when it started to look like this. I'm using Thunderbird 68.12.0 with no extensions. I tried resetting the columns, restarting in safe mode and resetting the controls - nothing helps.

Thank you in advance.

P.S. I've figured out. I'm using chrome CSS like this to make the header bar of another color otherwise it is white and I always click the header by mistake making the wrong sort order:

treecol, .treecol-image { -moz-appearance: none !important; background-color: peachpuff !important; }

What should I edit here to make the columns great again? :)

Hello,

I use Thunderbird for the same e-mail account on two different computers. Previously the tags were synchronised between the two computers. However, on one of the two computers the tags were modified and now they do not merge between the two. Is there anything I can do to restore the tags to their original parameters on the computer where they were previously changed and ensure that they do correctly merge?

Thank you for your help, I hope this makes sense.

The previously (now closed) thread mentions TbSync which is now incompatible with the my (latest) version of Thunderbird.

I need to use Thunderbird to replace my Outlook 2010 which went out of support earlier this week. Thought it was the end of the month which means I'm now in a bit of a rush to sort this!!  :(

Thanks

Attention: Mozilla Support forum members:

The Thunderbird version 68.12.0 (64-bit) e-mail client is working fine under my Debian Linux virtual machine, but Newser.com tag lines are appended to the end of my e-mail messages ( this does not happen with the Thunderbird e-mail client I am using on my host operating system ). How do I disable the Newser.com tag lines? Thank you ( see Colossians 3:15, for example ) for your help. Keep in touch.

I have just installed Thunderbird (78.3) on my new (mac) computer and have found my folder colors and the text of unread or selected emails to be completely unreadable as they are white on white. This doesn't seem to be an issue talked about online, though Mozilla has apparently removed the ability to modify text color.

Does anyone know how to fix this or why it is happening? Is it on Thunderbird's end or the new Mac OS?

Currently every new email is a surprise until I click on it.
