I am struggling with Gmail and Yahoo mail account in TB these few days. I hit almost the same errors from both. I generated app password for Yahoo mail, and put it in when setting up new account. For connection security: SSL/TLS For authentication method: tried with Normal password, Encrypted password, and OAuth2 However, I am seeing the expected authentication window pop up when trying the OAuth2. For all three authentication method: errors are always the same --- unable to connect to your IMAP server. I've followed another instruction to change maximum number of server connections to cache into 1 or 10. Error messages were the same imap one. So, what should I do/try for next?

I have been using Thunderbird for years. Always updated to the latest version. My current Thunderbird addresses are setup through Hostgator hosting and I've rarely had an issue. I recently set up a Zoho email address and added it to my Thunderbird platform so I can send and receive emails there. Problem is, when I send a test from one of my long time Thunderbird emails to the new email that goes through Zoho, it never shows up in my Thunderbird inbox. Never shows up in my Zoho inbox either. I can send from the new Zoho email to one of my established emails no problem using Thunderbird. But it doesn't work the other way around. I've checked everything I can think of--IMAP server settings, SMTP settings, added MX records, you name it. Not sure where the hang up is. Hopefully someone can help, thanks.

Hi,

I do like how I can change the toolbar buttons that Thunderbird shows when I open Thunderbird. That is, I other mouse button click on the toolbar and select "Customize." I have a panoply of buttons to choose from, to arrange as I wish on the toolbar.

But, when I am reading an email, the buttons I see on the top left of the email window are: "Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More" (in Settings, I have "'Open messages' set to 'in a new message window'."

I have not been able to find a similar "Customize" ability for the toolbar of the message window.

Is there such an ability?

The reason I ask... I'd like to have similar control over that toolbar to that I have on the other Thunderbird toolbars. But I cannot find the appropriate Customize option.

What am I missing?

thx.

I've recently upgraded Thunderbird to 78.14.0 and Nostalgy to 3.4.2. Nostalgy is an essential add-on for me, but it's not working the same as in earlier versions, and I hope someone can help with these problems. Or should I ask Alain Frisch, the author of the add-on? 1. Using S to move (or C to copy) an email to a selected folder works when the email is closed (but highlighted in the Inbox or wherever) but no longer works when the email is open. Earlier versions worked when the email is open, and it's a huge drawback for me that it doesn't work that way now. Am I missing something? 2. The command G (go to the specified folder) does not appear at all when invoked from within an email. When the email is closed G provides the expected list of folders, but focus does NOT move to the selected folder. Again, am I missing something?

Grateful for any help.

Posted this before, got no answers, not even a "no, there's no cure for that." Hoping for better this time.... My inbox suffers from disappearing email sometimes, and using the properties>repair cure works okay as far as I can tell (if someone emails me and doesn't ask about it later, how would I know?). But it has happened frequently enough, half a dozen times a month or more, that I do the repair by default pretty much every day just to be safe. That's easy but still a pain. Does nobody in MozillaWorld know a more permanent solution to free me from my constant missed mail paranoia? As I said, a reasonably authoritative "No, there isn't" is perfectly fine and much better than radio silence. Regards!

Thunderbird Version 115.10.1 on Windows 10

I wrote my own POP3 server and it largely seems to work apart from when Thunderbird tries to RETR the email messages at which point I get the error "Unable to write the email to the mailbox. Make sure the file system allows you write privileges, and you have enough disk space to copy the mailbox.".

If I drag a saved version of that same email that fails to be retrieved into Thunderbird , it can write it to the Inbox without issue. That means Thunderbird has permission to write to the Inbox file and so it is not a permission issue and there is enough space. I feel like it is more likely to be something I am doing wrong in my protocol implementation. For example, could I get this error if I misrepresented the octet count? Also I notice that even though my CAPA reply does not include UIDL, Thunderbird still seems to send that request and should get the response "-ERR Unknown command".

Output from my server showing what Thunderbird sent to it: CAPA USER person@mydomain.com PASS XXXXX STAT LIST UIDL RETR 1 QUIT

Any help is much appreciated, even if it is guidance on how I can debug it more thoroughly.

Thanks.

I was able to change the color of the context menu (the menu you get when you either right click or click on a dropdown) and the color of the highlight/selection as shown in the attached screenshot.

The default color looks like it's black, and I'd like to change it to match the rest of my Arc-Dark gtk theme. Does anyone know the name of the CSS tag that controls the context menu border?

Here's what I have so far:

/* Context Menu */ menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,popup > menu, popup > menuitem {background-color: #404552 !important;}

menuitem:hover, .menu-iconic:hover, .menuitem-iconic:hover {

Windows 11; Thunderbird 115.10.1

I prefer to see only new messages in my Inbox. To that end, I've chosen the icon that says "Show only unread messages;" but it will not stay chosen. Every time I leave TB and come back I have to chose the icon again or see all the messages I've seen and reacted to before.

Is there a way to make the choice to see only unread messages and have it stay in use?

Impossible to stop Thunderbird compacting folders it hasn't seen before?

Hi,

About a month ago I accidentally activated the "Delete all but the most recent 2000 messages" option for one of my mail account in Thunderbird (15.10.1 (64-bit) on a MacBook Air). Luckily our local support were able to restore the affected folders. BUT - every time I opened the restored folders in Thunderbird, all the restored messages would disappear again. Correspondingly, the support team can see at this time large numbers of messages being deleted.

I've tried to delete the affected mail account from Thunderbird - didn't help. I've hidden my profile and started Thunderbird from scratch, set up the mail account again (so there should have been no leftover information from any previous instance of the account) - didn't help. I can see that whenever I open a folder for the first time, Thunderbird says "Compacting" - this is even though I have "Always ask before compacting" set. Even after I turn off automatic compacting for space saving >20MB, Thunderbird still compacts when it first sees a folder.

I have verified this behaviour by connecting to the same mail server using alpine - I see messages flagged for deletion in the restored folder; as soon as Thunderbird touches the folder, they disappear (even though no compacting should be happening and I should be prompted before it does, see above). Conversely, if I remove the "to delete" mark from the messages using alpine and then open a folder in Thunderbird, the messages are visible there.

From my understanding of what Thunderbird should be doing when compacting (or rather when not compacting), I would say the behaviours I've seen are rather significant bugs. But if I've misunderstood and there is some other way to stop Thunderbird from purging messages marked for deletion, I would be grateful for any advice.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Yesterday, whenever I tried to open Thunderbird I got a This app will not open on your PC Windows error, and Word and Excel would not work. Apparently I had some Windows 10 problems which I was able to repair with Windows Resource Protection. Thunderbird now runs, but all 2000 of my Inbox messages do not appear. If I open my Mail folder in my Profile, I see the four folders inbound.att.net, inbound.att-1.net, inbound.att-2.net, and inbound.att-3.net The size of each of these inbound Mail folders is 5MB, 9.8GB, 38MB and 20MB. So, all of the missing Inbox emails are in the inbound.att-1.net folder but they don't show up. I tried deleting the .msf file. That didn't help.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am using Thunderbird 115.10.1 on Windows 11. T keeps deleting my saved passwords. T takes a very long time to load. There are no saved passwords and I enter them all with the options to save. I check the passwords in Settings and they are all there correctly. When I next run Thunderbird it may or may not have them still saved. I check the Settings and they have gone; so I enter them again and they are saved OK. But then they are deleted some time later. I cannot see any pattern in the failure. I wonder if there is a problem with the outgoing server setttings. All the passwords are lost whether imap, pop (Ionos), hotmail or yahoo. Is there a way to clear out my profile or is this a problem with this T release. it did not happen until about 1-2 months ago. My profile is on a local NAS. Generally T seems to be quite unstable ; I get Not Responding too often.. Thanks

(TLDR; Questions in bold at the bottom)

I currently have just a desktop Mac. I recently switched from Apple Mail to Thunderbird to read three email accounts: iCloud, gmail & a university account. I had previously used rules at the server level on my iCloud account, and this caused hella pain during the migration, including some zombie rules that I think I have isolated to Thunderbird. I deleted the rules from iCloud, removed the iCloud account from Thunderbird, restarted and then re-added it to Thunderbird. So far, so good, although I had to resubscribe to the draft, junk and trash folders (all other than the inbox) for some reason.

I have decided to experiment with not using rules or folders at all, and instead use local saved searches in Thunderbird. This will make my life easier when I get a laptop, which is inevitable. Two machines reading the same IMAP emails with rules can get weird.

Can I copy/paste existing saved search folders, so I can do similar searches just by making minor changes to the search terms? If so, how?

Can I copy/paste or save saved search folders, so I can do the same searches on a different Mac, without painstakingly recreating all the search terms? If so, how?

Can I create a saved search folder that contains all the messages not found in any OTHER saved search folder? If so, how?
