Thunderbird has stopped fetching new messages, giving this message.

The current operation on 'Inbox' did not succeed. The mail server for account ... responded Invalid UID fetch attribute XSENDER

I'm running release 52.2.1 on Windows 7.

Only the most recent messages give this error. Previously fetched messages display properly.

There has been no change to the account settings. Whatever happened seems to have happened at between 9 PM yesterday and 4 AM today. Subsequent messages are listed, but don't open, giving this message.

I've changed email hosts (while keeping same address), and in Thunderbird, created two addresses/accounts- one with my old host (hostbaby) and one with my new (dreamhost). I've been able to download all my emails from the hostbaby web mail into my Thunderbird inbox (the hostbaby settings account), but none of the folders download. I've tried many ways of transferring folders, with te4ch support from hostbaby, no luck. Then tried some online instructions, no luck. Any advice?

Sorry – I must be getting tired. I submitted to Firefox, when I should have submitted to Thunderbird. Can you please forward to the appropriate team? Here is my question, edited now to reflect that I meant Thunderbird:

I have 2 g-mail accounts and 1 university account, all of which I access using Thunderbird (which I love!). Today, Windows updated itself, and Thunderbird forgot the passwords on my g-mail accounts and would not accept the passwords when I typed them in; my university account was unaffected. Following instructions I got off the web, I deleted the old passwords from the 2 g-mail accounts and restarted Thunderbird; no luck. Somewhere along the line, I clicked Help, and Thunderbird automatically updated itself, but that did not help either. What to do?!

PS – I tried to add troubleshooting information, as instructed, but I got "we cannot find the page you're looking for." "These manual steps" and "educated guesses" did not work either. So: my current browser is the latest edition of Chrome, and I am using Windows 7 Professional (64-bit).

I use TB, Win 7, and my ISP is Cox Cable. I removed the passward from my Email Account using the path Junk Settings > Global Junk Preferences > Security > Passwords > Saved Passwords > and Removed All. But TB still ask me for a PW when I open it and I enter my previously used password. Only then can I see my email. So why is TB still asking for the password I thought I had deleted? I've included Troubleshooting Info, all the data above Important Modified Preferences.

I installed W7 with IE11and downloaded the latest TB (27.0.1) I have added five email accounts (more to be added) and none of them show up in the left pane - only global Inbox and two folders I created. I can get new messages manually one account at a time, but "get new messages for all accounts" (or Shift F5) does nothing. Most of this happed after MS installed well over 100 updates to my W7, but some of my accounts never did show up in the left pane even before the W7 updates. I have reinstalled TB - nothing changes.

How to Restore a Mozilla Thunderbird Profile from a Backup Copy

My system files have been corrupted and I can not do a restore from a restore point (System restore failed). No remedy has been found. I will either have to (1) do a factory reset/restore or (2) restore to a prior date from a system image. In either event I will have to restore my Thunderbird Profile which contains several calendar .ics files as well as events and tasks. The Profile, the ..default file and even the calendar ics files are backed up.

First, once my computer is all restored can't I just go to appdata/thunderbird and delete the old Profile and copy my back up back in?

Second, this is also confusing because, while in my Thunderbird Calendar, I regularly “export” my several different calendar .ics files to a back up directory. This implies I must use the “import” functions to put them back in. This is confusing as Import & Export seem to be terms of art that are not the same as “copy”. Is this a distinction with arty difference? Must I import each calendar .ics file back into TBird while it’s running or can I simply copy it all back in when I copy in the *.default folder?

The header space (to, from, date, subject) is enormous in 38.0 - eats up way too much space on the screen and consequently requires more scrolling than should be necessary. Part of this is the reply/forward/archive/junk/delete buttons, which I find completely superfluous since the same items are available on one of the toolbars. The reply-to line is seriously useless. How can I get rid of those and shrink the amount of space the header space takes up? Thank you!

Thunderbird Path Why moving Thunderbird into a new computer might fail.

This is my computer's folder path to the Thunderbird email files:

   C:\Users\Stan\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\iq9rzk1o.default\Mail\pop.att.yahoo.com\Inbox

In that Thunderbird email folder:

Are these folders:
  Crash Reports          A long list of very tiny "Install Time" text files.
  Profiles                    Folders and files holding all the Thunderbird user's email and preferences.                                       
And these files: 
  Registry.dat             A very small file with perhaps some entries for installation in the Registry.
  Profiles.ini                A very small text file containing only this:
                    [General]
                    StartWithLastProfile=1
                    [Profile0]
                    Name=default
                    IsRelative=1
                    Path=Profiles/iq9rzk1o.default     <--- Note this.

If that Path entry is not exactly the same as the path following the Thunderbird folder, then Thunderbird does not start.

         Error message:  "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

So, when copying/moving Thunderbird from the old computer into the new computer, that Profiles.ini file must be included.

        To do that copy/move the entire Thunderbird folder. NOT just the Profiles folder, as that Help article describes.

Thus this Help article needs correcting: Moving a Profile [ Because it fails. ]

Not sure if this is the correct place to post my question, given the separation of Thunderbird from Mozilla. If this is not the right place, I'd appreciate a link to the correct one.

I'm new to Mac OS, have been a long time Windows-7 user, and long ago was a UNIX user at my then employer. But it's past time to say goodby to Redmond.

I want to transfer my Firefox Thunderbird email history as well as my address book etc. from the Windows 7 installation of Firefox Thunderbird, (which says it's "68.8.0 (32-bit)", it was updated today, May 10) over to the new (to me) MacBook-Pro Firefox Thunderbird (version latest as of May 9, so far haven't figured out how to cause the Mac Thunderbird to show it's version info)

While the instructions for copying the profile info on the Windows machine and transferring to another Windows machine are clear, and the instructions for copying an existing Mac profile and transferring to a new Mac are clear, I am unable to find any information on how to move the Windows files to the Mac installation.

I tried copying everything in the Windows "Thunderbird" directory to a flash drive, then tried replacing the Thunderbird files on the Mac with the copied files but that didn't work.

What is the procedure I should be following? For the moment I'll be keeping the Win-7 machine "alive" but would really like to abandon it soon.

Thanks for any suggestions.

(edited the question to change Firefox to Thunderbird - c)
