Thunderbird (Windows) shows option to sort mail by size, but it is greyed out so unable to sort this way. PFA image.

Can anyone explain how to make this work?

Thunderbird Info: Version 115.12.2 (64-bit)

Mail Server Info: (Gmail) Server Type: IMAP Mail Server Server Name: imap.gmail.com | Port: 993 Outgoing Server (SMTP): Google Mail - smtp.gmail.com (Default)

Synchoronisation and Storage settings: attached as image.

OS Info: Edition Windows 10 Home Single Language Version 22H2 Installed on ‎24-‎02-‎2021 OS build 19045.4651 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.19060.1000.0


P.S. the purpose is to delete messages occupying the mailbox unnecessarily by going through them in the order of decreasing size. If there is another way to do this, that should also be fine.

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

When tbird opens the inbox, or after I have deleted an email - it opens the 'current' email. I would like to set it up so that it does not open the email ... until I take some action that would cause that. Specifically, I want the ability to delete or mark as spam ... before the email has ever been opened.

 Is this possible?  What area of the settings do I need to check?
                                                                                                                              - thanks ... Jim

When a mail group is created and a recipient has an alternate (non-default) email address which is used for purposes of the list, once the list is saved, the entry for the recipient changes to the default address rather than the chosen alternate address. For example, if an individual has both a home and work address with the work address as the default, how can a list which needs the home address be forced to retain the home address rather than reverting to the default work address when the list is saved?

As of Sunday, Thunderbird can no longer reach my ATT server to download email. It has behaved for ten to fifteen years. Last time someone at ATT fixed it. I have been on the phone or on screen with ATT most of my waking hours since Sunday. (In the process I lost my internet, my landline, my cell connection, etc.) Everything is restored except the connection between Thunderbird and ATT. Everyone thinks changing my password will do it. Done it four times. It gets me into the ATT mail. I have replaced the password in Thunderbird settings with it to no avail. Is there anything you can think of? Not only is Thunderbird more attractive than ATT, I have thirty years of mail boxes there, a continuation from Eudora. I will appreciate your wisdom.

I'm using the 115.12.2 (64-bit) version.

What I want to do is move my current profile, in /home/nunovski2001/snap/thunderbird/common/.thunderbird/emzi01vt.default/ to /media/nunovski2001/GST/emzi01vt.default/. I've done it before, I just can't remember how.

I have two different university accounts (one as a student and one as an adjunct). These accounts have the university domain, but they are through Gmail. Last year the university also instituted Microsoft single-sign-on for all emails.

Single-sign-on has the well-known, apparently unsolved, and extremely annoying problem that it makes it impossible to be signed into multiple single-sign-on accounts on the same browser at the same time. The solution to this problem so far is to use a private tab, or the Firefox "multiple containers" add-on, and separate one of the accounts into it's own container.

Thunderbird seems to have the same problem. I cannot connect to both accounts at the same time. The second one will not even open the popup to give credentials, and will always claim invalid authentication.

Is there some workaround similar to the Firefox browser workaround mentioned above?

I have iinet.net.au as my email server. They changed to themessagingco.com.au. Initially there were no problems and I could receive messages and send then after June 3 I could do neither. I contacted iinet and themessagingco. for assistance. I spent heaps of time with themessagingco changing settings for incoming and out going mail but am still unable to send or receive on Thunderbird. Help required, as I want to continue using Thunderbird. I am able to receive and send through webmail for themessagingco but really want to use Thunderbird. Is there something on Thunderbird that needs changing? Helen

So, I had to delete my wife's email account (and I know people cringe when that's done), because no matter what, I could not get in with any password and Thunderbird was acting strange in general. I created a new account but no matter what it will not take any password I put in. It just continues to circle and goes no where! How do I create this account easily, as I have done in the past, and what do I do about Thunderbird not accepting ANY passwords? As I said.....no matter what I put in, the the password section it doesn't take. Its like this: Name: Email address: Password: Once I put in whatever password I'm using it just continues to spin (or think) and goes no where. Can someone please help me here? I would so appreciate it. I'm not a computer dummy, but Thunderbird is sure making me feel like one!! Thank you in advance!
