I downloaded a Thunderbird update and lost use of my email thereon. I had problems with my email password and had to reset it. I can get email now via the web. I uninstalled and then reinstalled Thunderbird for a "clean slate." I enter my name, email and password. The first message was positive, but the last message was the Error: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password"

HELP!

My email provider is Comcast. I have several server folders there.

When I installed TB, one is missing though. I've logged into Comcast directly to confirm it's there.

There's no .msf for the folder in ImapMail/imap.comcast.net/ under my Profile--the others are there.

How do I get TB to fetch this folder / re-fetch all folders? Thanks!

I see the lots of info about moving a Profile to another computer or backing it up. That seems fine. However, they all including backing up the email data along with the Profile setup, which I don't want to do (due to email data being so large in many cases).

I see all my email data is in a folder called "ImapMail" within the Profile folder. Is it possible to backup the Profile and just exclude that folder? I mean, if the Profile is transferred to another system, won't the email just be downloaded again? Or will it not work that way?

Thanks.

How do I move all my message filters and address books from my Windows desktop PC to my Windows laptop?

I have three email accounts and ten address books. (The message filters use the address books to sort messages into folders.)

There are a bunch of abook* files in the root directory of the profile. Is it sufficient to move these to the laptop, or are they indexed somewhere?

There are msgFilterRules.dat files in many subfolders of Mail and ImapMail. Is it sufficient to move all of these into the corresponding folders on the laptop?

Is there an easier way to do either of these?

need to delete ImapMail files without affecting user data

I am the tech admin at my school and one of my user's hard drives is totally full. I ran a sorted disk space command and found that the folder ~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/5itb4j1n.default/ImapMail/imap.googlemail.com is 57GB. The hard drive is only 120 GB! Needless to say, I need to get this off the computer. It is a MacBook Air M1 running OS Sonoma 14.1.1 (can't upgrade because no disk space!)

The user accesses her Gmail through Thunderbird. There are messages in her Thunderbird history that are not available to her in Gmail because she integrated Thunderbird previously with her Yahoomail (before we switched to Google for our mail server). So we cannot delete Thunderbird because she needs it to be able to access old emails.

I'd like to know some options for having her continue to use Thunderbird (because she likes its layout) but without Thunderbird downloading and keeping a copy of every message/attachment that arrives.

I also want to know the best way to backup her existing Thunderbird and then be able to access it in the future, so that if she does need to access her historical archive of email messages, she can.

Our Thunderbird is set up with 2 email accounts - Gmail & Cox cable. Actually 3 as my wife also uses TB for her Cox emails. Cox is moving over to Yahoo. Not a fan of Yahoo. Eventually I will either set up another Gmail account (cox was for subscriptions or when a business needs an email address) and my has a Gmail already, but she does not use TB for that as for her Cox is her main email.

So can I delete our Cox emails thru Cox web email site without losing our emails currently in TB? And will that mess things up as TB sends and receives email from cox cable?

Any tips and suggestions much appreciated.

I installed Thunderbird yesterday and tried to connect my work account, which is a Google workspace gmail account with the organization's domain instead of gmail.com. I set the servers as smtp.gmail.com and managed to select OAuth2 for authentication (this was difficult and required me to set the port at 465). I went through the permission process with Google, which now acknowledges (in a very warning sort of way) that Thunderbird has access to my account. I even sent an email from Thunderbird, which showed up in the sent folder on the gmail account and was received by the sent to account. However, I see only an empty inbox and empty local Trash and Outbox folders in Thunderbird. It's just not syncing anything (or maybe downloading anything?) from the gmail account. I need it to sync all my mail folders and my calendars as well, so two big problems need to be solved before I can use Thunderbird at all. I sure appreciate any help I can get!

Gidday I have been using Thunderbird for quite some time and I have amassed a lot of emails and when I last exported the data, it came to 10Gb...now I know that you can only import 4Gb but is there any plan to update this? Also, is there any way that I can import (I have a new computer and need the old emails if possible) the data from the profile? I have read many of many ways to import but to me, they seem to have one or two vital steps missing... cheers col

Hello, I moved Thunderbird data to a new computer according to your instructions via a USB drive On the target computer everything goes well until point 9 of your instructions. "Choose to replace your current data when prompted." However, this screen does not appear. I open Thunderbird, but then only the screen to enter the email data appears. So Thunderbird does not open with complete data. What do I do? I'm wrong.

I am trying to help move an email account which was POP onto IMAP so they can have their emails on a couple of other devices other than their desktop. The issue is they have hundreds of folders in their local folders. I have setup their IMAP and have tried to copy over a few folders at a time onto the IMAP account, however I find that Thunderbird struggles with copying them and there are just so many that I can see myself getting in to trouble in a minute with duplicate folders in both locations.

I thought of a work around which appeared to work where I went into the Thunderbird profile for the user and copied the email folders from the local folders onto the newly created IMAP account. I then opened Thunderbird up in "Offline" mode and checked all the emails were there. They were which was great however as soon as I went online all the folders disappeared. I am guessing that this is the server overriding the local email client. How can I stop this happening and force the server to mirror what is showing on Thunderbird?

cat history.log-* history.log | grep -i firefox -B2 Start-Date: 2024-02-11 19:50:43 Commandline: /usr/bin/unattended-upgrade Upgrade: thunderbird-l10n-en-gb:amd64 (1:102.13.1-1~deb11u1, 1:115.7.0-1~deb11u1), thunderbird:amd64 (1:102.13.1-1~deb11u1, 1:115.7.0-1~deb11u1), thunderbird-l10n-fr:amd64 (1:102.13.1-1~deb11u1, 1:115.7.0-1~deb11u1)

- Thunderbird moved the top menu bar to the left, now has unreachable buttons at the bottom due to negative interactions with other menus and window manager => tried many forums, but all changes to ./chrome/userChrome.css are ignored. - the quick filter button was moved from the toolbar to an individual bar, adding one new line above message list, reducing the vertical space for content - new management of borders have negative interactions with window manager (tried both options, with and without decoration, both are ... BAD). making it impossible for window manager to properly resize window magnet to other windows - there are large sensibility zones for decoration management catched by TB that make some buttons unreachable in the left bar, and the window manager gadgets i have below (quick launch and desktop management) - there is a new sensibility zone between the top menu bar and the top decoration of windows that give access to some window manager menu, useless at this place, and it reduced the vertical sensibility zone of the buttons, making the click box smaller, and reducing the effective size of buttons, making them harder to click - the unread message count which used to be a nice light blue is now white in a dark grey box, catching the eye more than necessary, slowing me down, and increasing my brain work to focus on what i need to do. also this value is unconsistent; my inbox is curretly shown with 411 total messages, and 630 unread. If i unfold the folder in left column, it seems i have only 89 unread in inbox, and 2 in one subflder, but, to me, 89+2 is not equal to 630. - the file/edit/view menu bar is now BELOW the actions buttons Get/Write/Reply ... - if I roll up the TB windows in the top decoration, any mouse click in the place where the win used to be remains inefficient. So, TB completely broke E17. A shaded win still occupies the screen as if it's unshaded, and more (about 20 pixels below the bottom decoration). - It's 20y the message list was aligned on the top message, so I always made that box half a message taller than an exact message line height multiple, so that the half line white space was a proof I was at the bottom of the list. Now, the list is aligned bottom, and the top line is shown half. I now have no way to know if i am in middle on bottom of list (plus lift is now auto hide).

i don't have any screenshot from previous version for reference. And half issues are bad interactions with E17 about magnetism, and size of click boxes, and this can't be shown on screenshots; even videos would not help if you can't feel it physically, or never used E17 yourself in the past; you can't know how it used to behave.

All these changes have an intense negative impact on my work speed. They slow me down.

TB had almost not changed in 20y of use, but these changes, at the same time, with so many consequences on window manager ... I can't stand it. 20y of habits lost in one evening. Not something you can change at my age.

I have seen only one improvement (bug fix) in recent TB: "save all" attachements works now fine from the menu under the message, and we no longer need to use Save All from top menus (regression bug between TB 1.2 and 1.5, IIRC).

After a few years of not using Thunderbird, someone at FOSDEM convinced me to give it another go but now I'm running into trouble adding some of my accounts. I have 5 different gmail addresses, two gmail and three on my own domains that are hosted by gmail. I managed to add the two gmail addresses without a problem but the three email addresses that are on my domains won't authenticate. When I added the gmail addresses a window popped up asking me to allow Thunderbird but with my domain addresses it does not. I guess it has to be a setting in google admin for my domains but I have no idea what it is called, what to look for or where to find it.

If anyone can give me some guidance it would be highly appreciated.

Many thanks.

In a nutshell, I've had problems multiplying with Thunderbird for months now. I'd reset to default settings if that was an option. It doesn't seem to be. My fear is that if I just delete the program, reinstall it, and restore all of my old profile, some of the problems I'm seeing might be transferred back. So I'm wondering if I can just delete the program, do a fresh install, and restore the important parts instead. (Messages and Contact List.) Version 115.7.0 Thanks.
