I use TB 68.8.1 with 4 AOL accounts, 3 of them are POP and 1 IMAP on a Windows 7 PC. AOL just sent a notice saying that by October 20th, I need to 1. download their apps to my devices, not going to happen, 2. continue using a 3rd party client but remove and add back the accounts to reconfigure for their new security or 3. use a 1 time app password that must be redone every time you sign out. This option seems cumbersome since my computer is not on all the time. Do I really need to remove the accounts and re add or is it just some settings to change? If I have to remove the accounts what about my messages that are not saved in specific local folders? I had the Import/Export Tools but it had been disabled many version ago as legacy. Can this be done by creating a new profile before and moving messages after adding the accounts again? I do have EMailchemy which can save the messages but not sure about getting back into TB. Thanks

Suddenly it says "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk" every time I move emails. Every stupid time. Probably a very useful feature but just not how I have used things for the last decade or so. At first all I wanted to say was 'thank you but no thank you" Now it is getting beyond a joke. How do I get rid of this without deleting any emails? Yes I know they are nominally deleted but I've use that as an easy way to archive them and then copy them off as a history trail. All my accounts are carefully set to "Don't delete any messages". I like that. I mean it.

This occured after a Windows update. Previously I was running TB 68.x.x and upgraded to 78.3.3 to see if that would fix it.

1. Open TB 2. Watch it delete everything 3. Receive the error: [clientbug] select command is not valid in this state 4. Open Setting > Server Settings 5. Make a change to User Name; save. Change it back; save. 6. Click Get Messages 7. Everything downloads

it is repeatable. So long as we don't close TB, everything is fine. Close then re-open goes through this process.

Internet provider: Verizon / AOL. Password has been changed and is current.

Hi,

We have Thunderbird configured to local save our e-mail in a specific folder from our server. Ex: \\192.168.etc\thunderbirdmail\"user's folder"

Now I'll have to change the address and would be nice if I could just replace it from a file in Profile's config file. This way I could just change one file and just replace all others, otherwise I'll have to change all endpoints, one by one...

Is it possible? Where can I find the file to change and which file is that?

Thanks.

The only advice available right now is using Nightly version as if I'm ready to sacrifice stability over about: config access. The main question is, why was it removed? Is it really accessible in Nightly if the advice was for 79 and I'm on 81 already that I guess should have included changes from Nightly of two versions prior.

The issue is, that we use Firefox ESR and I can't see if the MAR files for auto-update are available for ESR.
