When looking at my list of folders after download, the SPAM folder doesn't seem to update the count of unread messages until I specifically open it. I miss the fact I have spam unless I specifically go in and look. Is this a function/feature of JUST the SPAM folder (all other folders seem to have their counts updated after a download). On Thunderbird 115.12.1 64 bit if that is of interest.

I have had a client for whom I use an outlook.office365.com "thing" and get/send e-mails through their domain.

In prior Tbird releases it just accepted whatever credentials Tbird presents

Recent release - I still authenticate just fine - can receive and transmit e-mails without issue. But every couple of minutes I get a nag screen asking me to login to login.live.com. I dismiss the nag screen, and can still transmit and receive e-mails. This screen is initiated by a Thunderbird process (I know this because if I kill a Thunderbird process in task manager, the screen goes away and everything works as expected. )

I really want no part of the Windows "Live" thing, and have no idea of what "helpful" changes it wants to make, and so I do not login.

"Settings" are set up with cookies set to yes. OAuth2 seems to be selected.

I see no settings that I could use to suppress the nag ... is there anything I can do???

Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to change my signature on an account I've had for sometime. It lets me make the changes I want and when I try sending a message it works fine. However when I close Thunderbird down and re open it, the signature has reverted to the previous version. I can't see any option to save the changes to the account settings so they'll still be there next time.

I've tried it 2 ways - firstly editing the HTML signature text, and secondly attaching instead a signature file. In both cases it works fine until I close and re-open.

After I input the correct server settings on the Thunderbird app,each time I click on the Get Message button, It starts downloading all (100K+) the email messages in my Yahoo inbox, including the ones that were already downloaded on my computer from the Cox server. Are there certain settings in Thunderbird that will stop this issue and just let me download new messages? TIA -Craig

Hi This morning when I tried to send an email I got a message there was no disk space & so couldn't save copy to sent (I have 848 GB free on HD)

I tried to copy some old sent emails to a folder I've used in the past (old sent) & TB crashed. When I restarted it, many of my subfolders were missing. They are all still showing in Local folders in profile. I deleted all msf files & restarted TB. Nothing.

How can I restore these folders? Hopefully that's possible! Thanks

I am using Thunderbird 115.12.1 (64 bit) on Windows 10 with the email account set up as POP3 for the Gmail account

I have a subfolder under an Inbox (Gmail account) that is no longer showing up. If I search for an email address from a sender that was in the folder, I get a list of emails showing the dates and subject, but if I click on the email, the tab that opens is blank.

My PC crashed, but I can't say for sure when the folder disappeared, other than I know it was there 4 days ago. It the the only subfolder that is missing.


Any help is appreciated. Thanks

To the Mozilla Community:

I have a Posteo account and set it up successfully in Thunderbird. Emails and Calendar are both working without any issues.

However, Posteo contacts are not syncing. I used the TbSync / Provider for CalDAV and CardDAV without success. And using the Add CardDAV Address Book in Thunderbird is not working either.

Posteo Support confirmed my settings are correct. (Enter https://posteo.de:8843/addressbooks/johnexample/default in the URL field and replace johnexample with the local part of your email address. )

Any assistance that can be provided to troubleshoot and resolve this issue is appreciated.

Thank you.

A while ago my long-time hotmail account stopped working on two computer with windows 10 and one with windows 11. Last night, I looked up an article that said I have to use Oauth2 instead of normal pw. I made that change on the windows 11 machine and a popup occurred that wanted the number from the google authenticator on my phone. I gave it that and it checks mail now just fine.

This morning I went to one of the Windows 10 machines and did exactly the same. I tried some different server names online and tried some, but after a while I started getting a little window that asked my email address and pw. I put my hotmail address in and got this message:

Microsoft Accounts or personal email addresses don’t work here. Make sure you enter your work or school account (e.g. user@contoso.com). If you want to reset a Microsoft Account password, click here.

Now this is the very same hotmail email that worked on windows 11 with the same server settings last night. It still works.

Now, on the windows 10 machine with those same settings, I get the blank extra window. The extra window appears, does not populate, and disappeared.

It is: https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/oauth2/v2.0/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=9e5f94bc-e8a4-4e73-b8be-63364c29d753&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Flocalhost&scope=https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FIMAP.AccessAsUser.All+https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FPOP.AccessAsUser.All+https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FSMTP.Send+offline_access&login_hint=redacted@hotmail.com

I had no opportunity to do what worked on the windows 11 machine just last night. I cannot check mail on hotmail on this windows 10 pc. I took all the updates available to Thunderbird and firefox. TB is 115.11.1

I'm stopped. Why would it work on one pc and not another? Oauth2 on the windows 11 asked for authenticator. On the windows 10 it never asks.

We've just started having an issue with Thunderbird continually prompting for Calendar passwords, but not remembering them. IMAP and SMTP seem to be retained ok. Additionally, if we just skip past the prompts (we are using around 5 different calendars), and just go and click the "Enable" button....they open just fine and we don't get any prompts, until we close and re-open Thunderbird. We're running 115.12.1 on Windows 10, 11 and Server 2022 Datacenter. It's not a devastating problem, but a little tedious for some of our users that open and close their Thunderbird a lot during the day. We are running "Smartermail" V8909 from Smarter Tools as our mail server. Thanks in advance!

I'm connecting to an MS Exchange server via smtp.office365.com and mostly this works OK by now. I do have a stupid problem, however: After deleting several folders, they always "come back" as "ghost folders" (grayed out and without messages) and it's impossible for me to get rid of them. Very annoying. I've tried a couple of steps:

  • of course, I tried deleting the folders through the Thunderbird interface, also from Trash, where they first move to
  • I also tried to delete msf-files associated with the deleted folders -- to no avail
  • I also tried to unsubscribe from these folders using the "Subscribe" interface -- this is not possible: I can tick off the folders, save my choices, but as soon as I open "Subscribe" again, these folders are back
  • I also tried to use Outlook, but the deleted folders are not shown in Outlook -- it seems to me that Thunderbird has difficulties letting them go

I'd be very thankful for any constructive help!
