This is a very strange problem. I've had this account set up in Mozilla for at least a couple of years, but this only recently started happening. Thunderbird can download my mail without issue. It allows me to read messages on the IMAP server. It allows me to mark messages as read or unread. Moreover, it doesn't happen consistently. Sometimes, there's a delay in how long it takes for the messages to get marked as read, and then the error comes up, but then a couple of seconds later it will work. This problem is mostly just annoying, and the error message sometimes gets in the way of other programs.

This problem does not happen on the same e-mail account on my Windows 7 PC at home, which also uses Thunderbird. Nor does it happen on any of the other e-mail accounts I have set up in Thunderbird on my Linux workstation.

The particulars of my Linux workstation:

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - Thunderbird 52.9.1 (64-bit)

The only difference between this and my Windows 7 workstation is that Thunderbird is the 32 bit version. Thunderbird has the same version otherwise.

I hope this helps someone. Please reply if you need more details.

Question pretty much says it all. Character echo is very slow, several seconds. Same to changing mailboxes. Everything is slow. I first suspected exhausted memory from FireFox. Killing all browsers did not help. I'm unaware if some other system change precipitated the problem.

I was running a mac desktop under Yosemite and I have migrated to a new Linux machine running Ubuntu 16.04. Thunderbird works fine. I have exported my e-mails to an mbox package. I have copied it and placed it on my linux machine. Now I need to figure out how to import those e-mails (if possible) into my thunderbird program. How do I do this?

My ISP is AOL and I have asked them if the change of the Spam folder name as I see it on my PC, from Spam to Bulk Mail is due to them. They say no, it must be Thunderbird. I am unable to change or delete the folder on my PC. When I look at my account on the AOL website, the folder is correctly called Spam. Is Bulk Mail a valid Thunderbird folder name or should I be worried? Regards, Peter McPherson

Thunderbird has worked great for several years but recently It will not retrieve emails. I keep getting this: Sending of password for user jscott1837@att.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: maildrop busy.

Thunderbird works occasionally but mostly the above keeps happening.

What is wrong?

I have two instances of Thunderbird, both configured the same way, one on Win 7 Pro and one on Xubuntu, both 64 bit. The Xubuntu instance is running near perfectly, but the Win 7 version is running very, very slowly and hanging other programs. For example, composition is nearly impossible. I have 4 cores and 8 gb ram. This started when I upgraded from office 12 to 14. I have tried all the safe mode stuff to no avail and have uninstalled and reinstalled Thunderbird. The system is fine otherwise. Any clues?

This is actually a two part problem. The main concern is, while adding a new addressee, remote content is automatically blocked, as it should be, and you are asked to vet the bona-fides, as it were, of the sources. Most of us would like to assume that we can trust a vendor not to piggy-back a malicious beacon into their messages, but that's easier than you think - or easier than THEY think, as well. For a lot of vendors, it's automatic that I just accept the default "accept remote content from above sources", but a few of them have looked suspicious - and indeed, I have tracked one back to a website in North Africa that had nothing to do with the email I was receiving. They also subverted my provider's IT department to the point where my requests for tracing were actually going to the criminal, not the IT guys. This is all because we have really no way of knowing the source of those addresses.

That brings me to the second part of the problem. I can't find anywhere in the setup where I can, once an address has been accepted, look at the remote content source list or edit it. I'd like to be able to call it back up and examine it, and maybe see if it has been changed, or correct an error like the inclusion of a bad source, or leaving out a good source erroneously (I did that once, and now I can't see part of the message).

On my desktop system I pull mail from the server with POP and use mutt to read the messages. Thunderbird also pulls copies for those times I want to view the rich, html content of a message.

When I'm away from my desk, working on a laptop, I'd like to view the mail in TB without pulling a 3rd copy from the server. But my websearching says remote viewing is not possible. Then I tried something that seems to be working quite well but I'd like to hear if there are any 'gotchas' that I might encounter.

I used sshfs to mount my desktop's ~/.thunderbird on the laptop's ~/.thunderbird. When I started TB it came up with all my folders and I could read, search, and send mail with excellent performance.

Are there potential problems I've not yet encountered? BTW my uid and gid are the same on both systems. Also, while there is an instance of TB always running on the desktop, I would only be active on one system at a time.

Thanks, Jon

I am currently running Ubuntu 15.04. I previously had Thunderbird and Firefox installed on Ubuntu 12.04 and everything was fine then. With the newer version, however, scrolling is very erratic and the arrow buttons have been removed. This is extremely annoying because it is impossible to scroll through the list of messages without skipping too far. Why has no one come up with a solution for this yet? This has been an ongoing problem for a lot of users for several years now. Is it possible to reverse this "upgrade" and go back to where the arrow buttons actually worked?

Digital signature using a smartcard (the beligian eID) and S/MIME works with Thunderbird on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS On Unbutu 18.04 it doesn't (same version, identically configured). I precise that all other functionalities of my eID work work on this platform (Be government web sites strong authentication, documents digital signature, ...). S/MIME email encryption/decryption works as well using Thunderbird. Only email digital signature is not working.

Can you help? Should I apply for help with mozilla or ubuntu support?

Thanks for your answer.
