When I installed version 91 of Thunderbird a lot of the accounts I have in version 78 did not get imported into version 91. Is there a way I can get the remaining accounts transferred? Where can I find information on how to do this? Thanks.

They are missing from the account settings and therefore are not displayed in the folder pane. I was able to recreate some of them manually but that is a hassle when some are imported and some are not. Also it did not recreate my calendar. I read somewhere that will be coming in a future version, but why release a product when it is known to be incomplete?

well you have got me. I was going to ask you for details to trey and determine what happened, but given you have manually added accounts since I guess I will just have to give up.

BTW the calendar has been built into Thunderbird since V68 so I have no idea what the information you are on about it coming later is about.

Things I do know is you are the first person to claim accounts were missing. and the product is complete and functional, I have been using it since it's original release in August. I had some issues with RSS feeds, but certainly did not loose accounts.

The guy that develops the provider for Google calendar (which is largely obsolete) did not release an update to that add-on until this last weeks or so. Perhaps that is what you are on about the calendar.

I just uninstalled 91 and reinstalled it. I then was able to recreate the missing accounts. I then found another problem. My address book is empty. So 91 is not importing that either.

I also have been using Thunderbird for many years and have never had these problems. Why could it not do an automatic upgrade and it had to be a manual one. I also read somewhere that is also coming in a future version.

Again why release a product that is NOT complete???
