Hello,

(excuse my English).

I receive properly most of my emails in Thunderbird but there is this one from "Wetransfer support" (support@wetransfer.zendesk.com ) I cannot. I receive it on the email service provider server, but not in the Thunderbird client. I just have a notification ("1" next to the main folder). When I send copies of it to myself from the server, it is the same issue. Strangely, when I copy paste the content in a new message, it passes through. Everything happens as if there was something inside the body of the message that Thunderbird did not like. Some little pictures inside are not copied in the copy/paste process, so maybe it is the cause. What's your opinion?

Best regards, Samuel

Thunderbird version 91.xx and older used to have an option in the Composition Toolbar of the [Write] window to insert a digital signature. See attached digisig_TB91.jpg.

From Thunderbird 102.0 onwards that digital signature option is removed, though its settings in [Account Settings > End-To-End Encryption] are still there. See attached digisig_TB102.jpg.

Shall the digital signature option in the Composition Toolbar ever return?

P.S. 1. Yes, yes, I know. I can still insert a digital signature, but switching the function ON and OFF again in [Account Settings > End-To-End Encryption], is an annoyingly time-consuming hassle. 2. Do not confuse with encryption. That's a totally different function and purpose.

I am trying to set up the calendar in Thunderbird for my mother. She uses a google calendar and it is working fine on the old computer.

However, on the new one, it lets me get as far as trying to select a calendar to subscribe to be the list is blank.

In trying to troubleshoot, I tried setting up my own calendar on a different computer and the same is happening.

Mother's is a Windows 11 and mine is a Windows 10.

In troubleshooting I came across a post that suggested that I open the dev console and by golly there is an error there.

The same error appears on both accounts/computers. [Exception... " �invalid_request��� You can't sign in to this app because it doesn't comply with Google's OAuth 2.0 policy for keeping apps secure.

Where is/how do you set the calendar to use OAuth 2.0?

Email works fine is already set to OAuth 2. The calendar on the old computer works fine. Before the "choose account" window opens, it does seem that google trys to open a pop-up to enter the password, but the window closes and the "choose calendar" window that is blank open. Is this a bug? Can it be fixed?

I tried to make a new profile. Then it worked, but only until next update (102.0.1).

This happend also after update to 102.0.2 and 102.0.3. :(

Now I tried to copy a not working profile folder from mounted NAS-drive to local drive. -> Profile on mounted device is working only in safe-mode -> Profile on local device is working well in normal mode

For me it looks like, TB is not able to read (decrypt?) stored PW from mounted devices in normal mode. (But it works well in safe-mode).

Hello, I'm afraid TB stopped working after I changed my gmail password. Whenever it tries to connect to the imap server, I get the oauth login prompt, fill out the password, confirm that I want to allow TB to access my gmail account, but after that, I just get the "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com."

I have OAuth2 set as the authentication method, I have cleared the saved passwords, updated TB, manually deleted obsolete files in the profile folder and basically tried every advice I could find, to no avail.

All worked well before the password change (the big end-of-may less secure app business did not affect me).

Currently, I have removed all my gmail accounts from TB and am trying to add them again. One of my gmail account uses 2FA, in this case, I also tried to use the app password. The other gmail account does not use 2FA, so I just used the regular password. In either case, I get the popup asking me to allow TB to access my mails, which I provide, but end up with "Unable to log in at server" message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello!

After upgrading from a very old (but perfectly working) version of Thunderbird (24.3.0 on Windows 7) to 91.8.1 (on the same Windows 7 system), Thunderbird can no longer remember my passwords.

Apart from this everything in the new version works. Emails are retrieved fine when I enter the passwords manually.

Symptoms:

  • always asks me for my passwords, even when I have checked the "Use Password Manager to remember this password" checkbox.
  • no stored passwords show up in "Saved Passwords ..."
  • When I try to set a primary password (I did not use one so far), I get an error "Unable to change Primary Password".

What I tried after searching for solutions:

  • Remove files cert*.db and key*.db from my profile. Does not make any difference.

Network Solutions upgraded their email, and I multiply-checked all my settings in Thunderbird (102.3.2) and can retrieve mail but the outgoing mail hangs and time out with an error. I just discovered it's not my settings, but there's no password listed for the default outgoing SMTP server (my own domain). (I have 2 email accounts, and listed in the "Saved Passwords" are 2 passwords for incoming IMAP plus one the other account outgoing SMTP, 3 total.)

Is there any way to add a password without deleting the default server and then adding it back in, or some other solution?

Thanks

Gmail with Thunderbird using OAUTH2 - not Connecting nor creating a Cookie

This is my first post. But I have been reading and benefiting from all the expertise I have found here for many years! Thanks to all!

Trying to plan ahead for the Gmail OAUTH2 change, I upgraded to Tbird 91.9.0.

My Account Settings all transferred to the new version. I do have multi Gmail accounts, as well as other email accounts, but from other posts here, this should matter.

While I am a long term Tbird user, I am a newbie with OAUTH2. I can't seem to connect. So I am writing here for help!

My setup: - Dell notebook running W10 - internet connection strong - am using a Netgear Nighthawk Hotspot Router, which works great with

    everything else, so I really doubt that is an issue

- testing without a firewall; running McAfee - resetting Tbird account back to "Normal Password", then Gmail connects

Incoming Server set to IMAP: imap.gmail.com:993 w SSL/TLS and OAuth2 Outgoing: smtp.gmail.com:465 w SSL/TLS and OAuth2

I have been consistently testing with the same gmail account: - YES, I know my password; it works with both the Gmail web interface,

   or after going back to "Normal Password" instead of OAUTH2

- allow any Alert emails via Gmail Web Interface, repeatedly. - Ran Captcha ... many times! In case someone else reading here needs this, it is here: https://accounts.google.com/b/0/DisplayUnlockCaptcha and you must be logged into the Gmail Web Interface when running this. I have learned to take a pause after running this, for it do its thing.

If Toad-Hall is reading this, I found your list of steps here very helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375558 Worth repeating for others who are struggling, like me.

As recommended here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373706 Cookies: all cleared Remembered Passwords: all cleared

Also looked at this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375702 Originally, my cookies WERE blocked. I did need to change my Web Content as recommended in this post:

   Selected: Remember web sites and links I've visited
   Selected: Accept cookies from sites
   Accept third-party cookies: Always
   Keep until : they expire
   Not selected: 'Send web sites 'Do not track'..... 

Also: In Privacy and Security -> Web content -> Exceptions, added: https://accounts.google.com set to 'Allow' and Saved Changes. Then exit Tbird, took a short pause, started Tbird again, per the advice to properly update the files.

Should I be doing BOTH of these? This post shows options: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatic-conversion-google-mail-accounts-oauth20 So if I Select to accept cookies, should I also set the Exception??? I have tested various combinations of these settings, but not seeing a cookie.

In Tbird, when testing to connect, I see:

"Sign in with your Google Account" Enter my account password (I see an error msg here when I typo the password, no error when entered correctly) Also, have checked "Stay Signed In" while trying to Authorize, as recommended. then click Allow on the second screen.

After a few seconds, keep seeing popup in lower right corner of screen: "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com" Sometimes, this msg does not popup, which seems odd to me, but it still fails: Cookies: still empty Password: still empty

I keep updating and reading and updating the setups and testing again, but no cookies for me!


I admit I have gotten off track, testing and reading posts:

Thought my problem might involve Certificates for a while, but now do not think OAUTH2 is using Certificates. Right?

Thought for a bit it might be Javascript disabled, but I am NOT seeing the popup window that shows this error, from this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373379 refers to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1286410 Did find my way to Config editor: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349136 Followed this advice: "Click the 3-bar menu icon, Preferences, and find Config. editor at the bottom of the General section. Or, type editor in the search box at the top of Preferences." Then searched for "Javascript" and found most of settings were true, like javascript.enabled is "true". Should everything that a search for javascript finds be set to true? Since I do not see the error msg, I believe this is not my problem.


Stans posted another helpful summary here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375538 "After you've changed your accounts to OAuth2, delete all records of your Google Account passwords from Thunderbird's password vault (Saved Passwords). With OAuth2, your passwords are not stored by Tbird. Instead, an OAuth2 token (a long string of meaningless characters) is stored in the password field. That's what you should see after completing the OAuth2 process for each of your accounts. You have to do it twice, once for incoming and once for outgoing server. Also, you must allow cookies in Thunderbird's Preferences, otherwise it won't work."

If I am following this correctly, after testing to try and authenticate, I should see a Cookie and a Saved Password being created but they are not.

Think this is my problem!


In Gmail web interface, I am not sure of some settings:

In Manage Your Google Account -> Security:

1. Should Sign-in 2-step verification be on/off? (its off) 2. Third Party apps w access shows Tbird (think this is new, don't recall it before) 3. Allow Less Secure App: turn off (was On for normal pswd; either way fails w OAUTH2) (think I have tested all combinations of the above, with no success) I welcome suggestions on how I should set these to connect with OAUTH2.

I feel like I am getting close here, but I am stuck. Is there anything else, maybe something I have not heard about, like Captcha, that I should try?

Have I missed a setting somewhere? Suggestions???

The Error console shows:

This doesn't give me a hint as to the problem is with the security certificate. It hasn't changed recently and worked yesterday.

The cert is self-signed and expires in a few days. Previously (not recently) I had to do a variety of things to make Thunderbird happy with it.

I prefer to use S/MIME to digitally sign my email messages. Prior to Thunderbird 102.3.1, using S/MIME to digitally sign my messages was the default.

Now, for every single email I send, when I click "Send" I get the dialog box "OpenPGP Alert - Cannot digitally sign this message, because you haven’t yet configured end-to-end encryption for <email address>". I have to then select "S/MIME" from the encryption/signature menu.

It's a pain to have to remember to do this for every email I send.

I checked my account settings. "Do not use OpenPGP for this identity" is checked. The correct S/MIME certificate is selected.

How do I set the default signature method to be S/MIME instead of OpenPGP in this new version of Thunderbird?

I'm running Thunderbird 102.3.1 on Mac OS 10.14 Mojave. The Enigmail plugin is disabled. I have an OpenPGP key that I created 20 years ago on my system, and Thunderbird recognizes its presence, but I do not use it.

I have installed latest version of Thunderbird and all works as it should but 2 things seem wrong and not sure if bug, incorrect setting or just not allowed:

1 When I send encrypted email to myself it is automatically unencrypted and readable. I would prefer that any encrypted email I receive forces me to enter my private password every time. Can I configure this? 2 I would like to set Tbird to automatically encrypt all emails to an address I have the public key for. however It looks as if I can only set 'encrypt all' or 'don't encrypt' which means I need to manually select for each email or have to set as 'encrypt all' and then get message for almost all recipients that they don't have public key etc.

Advice appreciated.

I tried to de-install and re-install Thunderbird, on my data (D:/) disk and on my system (C:/) disk, but it didn't help... Is it possible that the vulnerability is in a config file that isn't deleted when uninstalling Thunderbird?

I received the following from my e-mail provider, and as a total dumbo about this, want to ask if I need to do anything about this in Thunderbird (Linux). As far as I can see, my e-mail account in Thunderbird is set to POP3, encrypted using SSL/TLs, normal password - can anyone tell me if this is OK - Thanks.

Quote: "We are contacting you because one or more of your devices or programs uses the TLS 1.0 and/or TLS 1.1 encryption protocols to connect to our mail.com email servers, or is using an unencrypted connection. This involves either access via SMTP (sending emails) or retrieval via POP3/IMAP (receiving emails).

Unfortunately, the TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 encryption protocols are outdated and no longer meet current security standards. To protect your email communications, soon we will no longer allow access to our mail.com servers with these outdated protocols. Unencrypted access will also no longer be possible.

After the protocols have been deactivated, the transfer of emails between your affected device or program and our mail.com servers will no longer work; i.e. no emails will be transmitted to or from your mail.com email account using TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1.

I originally installed Thunderbird about 2 years ago via the package installer on my Linux desktop. Currently running the 68.10 version which has never updated nor is there a function to update the program. I've read through the FAQ's and nothing was helpful. This all came to my attention when I received the following email from my email provider at mail.com a few days ago.

"Deactivation of TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and unencrypted access We are contacting you because one or more of your devices or programs uses the TLS 1.0 and/or TLS 1.1 encryption protocols to connect to our mail.com email servers, or is using an unencrypted connection.

To protect your email communications, soon we will no longer allow access to our mail.com servers with these outdated protocols. Unencrypted access will also no longer be possible."

They indicated that mail service will stop to my Thnderbird account in a couple weeks if the problem has not been corrected.

Thank you for any suggestions about correcting the issue.

I was horrified to receive an e-mail from mail.com, telling me that my e-mail service would effectively be withdrawn in about 3 weeks unless I upgraded TLS 1.0 to TLS 1.1. I barely understand what that means but I have done my best to comply, short of buying a new computer. I have queried the usual sources, which tell me that if I upgrade Thunderbird to the latest version all will be well, so I tried to implement some of the often contradictory advice offered - to no avail. When I started, About Thunderbird informed me that I was running version 68.10.0 (64- bit). After trying all that I could understand, About Thunderbird tells me that my Linux 18.3 (Sylvia) computer is still running version 68.10.0 (64- bit). I suppose that's a bit better than screwing the whole thing up - but not a lot. My update 'shield' icon continues to show a green tick and assures me that my system is up to date. I appear to have disappeared up my own tail pipe. If some kind soul would explain how I can extricate myself from this impasse I would be exceedingly grateful.
