On the mail tab, the email list's "Subject" column is not left-justified (or maybe it's left-padded). However, my other columns like "Correspondents" and "Date" are left-justified. Because of the extra left-hand space in the "Subject" column, the subject line shown is reduced by about 5-7 letters.

I have my layout setup as vertical panes. For ease-of-reading/navigation I won't be switching over to a horizontal layout, even though I can have wider columns in that layout.

Please refer to the yellow-highlighted area on the attached picture.

Is there a solution for having "Subject" line up like the other columns?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.  :-)

Is the syntax for the address book query described anywhere? (as in mail.addr_book.autocompletequery.format) Specifically, I want to match fields "starting with" the input value, not "containing" it. I also want to prefer address from one specific address book (i.e. list those addresses first) without completely excluding addresses from the others.

Running Win 10 (22H2) and Thunderbird 102.5.0 (32 bit).

Adding Yahoo to email, POP server. Using recommended server configurations. When clicked on DONE, a popup browser from Yahoo occurs with username filled in, then asks to prove not a robot (captcha), then asks for password. Finally agree for Thunderbird to access Yahoo email. Goes to check login and after some time presents the message "Unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." Repeated attemps goes through the cycle of the popup from Yahoo to give Thunderbird access to Yahoo email.

An email is sent by Yahoo indicating a sign in on Thunderbird. Clicked on Advanced settings to save settings. When click on Get Messages the Yahoo popup appears the give Thunderbird access to Yahoo email. This is repeated every time for Get Messages. Email at Yahoo says sign on Thunderbird has accurred.

No messages are ever dowloaded to Thunderbird. Yahoo seems to know an attempt was made to sign on to Yahoo with Thunderbird but Yahoo does not accept credentials to download the emails to Thunderbird.

What other settings need to be checked to make this work.

When I go on my emails, they have disapeared from all my folders - inbox, sent, draft and trash. To bring them into view, I need to click "properties" and new screen appears and I click on "repair". I have to do this every time and when I switch to a different folder, I have to do the same again. At least I can see my emails but I should not have to do this every time.

I updated Thunderbird to 102.0 without issue. A couple of updates later, I have102.5.0 installed and can't send email.

I either see the Send button dimmed, which means send is disabled, or the Send button appears normal but clicking it produces no effect - no email is sent. Trying to send with several different GMail and Microsoft Exchange accounts all has the same result.

I have tried

  • checking SMTP settings (all fine)
  • restarting Thunderbird
  • restarting my computer
  • reinstalling Thunderbird
  • reinstalling Thunderbird 102.0
  • sending from the same account(s) using webmail (this worked)
  • sending from the same account using another email client (this worked)

Clearly the issue is with Thunderbird, but I can't find any help item that covers this topic. Would much appreciate help or advice.

My setup:

  • Thunderbird 102.5.0
  • Macbook Pro M1 with Monterey 12.4

I often save web pages in mhtml format and send them to e-mail recipients.

One thing that irks me no end is that Thunderbird insists on displaying the mhtml page in the body of my e-mail, inevitably totally screwing up the formatting and making my e-mail practically illegible.

My work-around has been to put the mhtml into a zip file to prevent this from happening. But the last time I did this, the recipient was unable to open the zip file. It seems to me there ought to be something in Settings that will allow me to prevent Thunderbird from inserting an attachment into the body of my e-mail. An attachment is an attachment. It should not automatically insert itself into the body of my e-mail text.

Is there a way to do this?

Thank you,

Dandelion

I uninstalled Thunderbird and downloaded it and reinstalled it and the error persists.

Hi,

I recently made a change to the domain where my email is hosted. I forwarded my GoDaddy domain to a new WordPress website, but now I can no longer send/receive emails in ThunderBird. I changed the DNS in WordPress and they told me to reach out to you and make sure I have all the entries I need to make sure everything is working properly. Can you assist? I've added a photo of my DNS below.

Thanks, Jeff

Somehow I managed to set ALL my received messages as "this message is a draft" with a little pencil or pen figure up there. I don't know what I did to cause it. I tried going through them turning off the Edit button on the emails. It doesn't Stick. It doesn't appear on messages received that were transferred to the delete folder (using delete button). It doesn't appear on my archives - haven't moved between In folder & archives. I've troubles enough. The problem doesn't occur in the deleted or Sent folders. I don't have anything in the draft folder. How do I get all my received In box messages to no longer be labeled editable? I keep some of this stuff as evidence of payment or donation for tax purpose. I don't want editablility. Sincerely, Your Feathered Klutz Keetbird

I'm using the dark theme, so in general (when I'm composing new emails) I'm writing in white text on a (nearly) black background.

I think it's when I reply to an email with black text on white paper, that my writing is black text on black paper. It's also happened the other way round - white text on white paper (background).
