unable to locate mail spool file

I'm running Ubuntu Linux 18.04.1. Lotsa data storage. Lotsa RAM.

I installed T-bird successfully. Ubuntu makes that part easy. But every time I try to boot T-bird, the bass drum in Ubuntu goes 'boom' and I get this weird message: "unable to locate mail spool file." Well I don't know what a mail spool file is and wouldn't recognize if it crawled up my leg and ate my kneecap.

T-bird crashes and falls off the screen in the instant the drum goes "boom". I'm clueless, people. So how to I fix it? I love T-bird. I'm 70 years old and have used it since Windows 2K was hot stuff. Now I can't use it. I hate WEB mail, so I thought maybe you folks could help. Thanks for any advice! jimmythewriter@hughes.net

If you have just added a mail account to Thunderbird, then I believe you have created a 'MoveMail' account and not a POP or IMAP Email account. you may have selected the wrong option. Some info on 'MoveMail' here, plus other info.


Did you intend to create a 'MoveMail' account ? If no, then delete the mail account and recreate a new one as POP or IMAP not MoveMail.
