Purchased a new laptop to replace an aging desktop. Pulled harddrive out of desktop, attached as an external drive (F:) to the laptop. Mistakenly (apparently) thought I could just run TB from there. Went to F:, tried opening TB. It popped up the Create Account box. Closed that. Opened TB on the laptop (C:). Created account there. It downloaded new email, but I had no old email. So I tried moving the profile from F: to C:. Profile name is now there, but I still have none of my old info. No old mail, folders, etc.

Am I screwed here? Did just opening TB on the F: drive overwrite my original profile?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I have reloaded Windows 10 into my Lenovo T510 as a result of changing the hard drive. I had saved my Thunderbird profile. I completed this last Friday. Thunderbird will not allow me to download its software as my machine is now not compatible which I am struggling with as I was using Thunderbird all last week (See attachment). As a sneeky fix....I took a older version from my wife's machine loaded that...all good. I assumed in time it would update after I had loaded my profile. When I try and change my default profile to the migrated one in the software I see the message attached. I seem to be caught in a vicious circle as my Lap top is nolonger compatible with the Thunderbaird software available for download, though I have only changed the harddrive. If I use an older version of Thunderbird which is working fine on my wife's Lenovo T510 (identical machines) I have a compatibility with the profile I want to use. I also attach my lap top operating system and architecture(?) Can anyone help? In normal circumstances I would just start again but the profile has some very important emails relating to a personal legal case I am fighting (and winning) and I need access to them.

I installed Beta version 107.0b3, eventually successfully, then tried to load the German and Dutch dictionaries. I got all the way to the big green "+ Add to Thunderbird" button, clicked it and nothing happened. I tried with the 102 version and was able to successfully load them there. As my Dutch and German spelling is not too good, and I tend to wobble a bit between the two languages when I am typing (but not when I am speaking), the dictionaries are a godsend :-) . I also checked that loading with 107 didn't load it into 102 by mistake, by loading a random third language.

I've been using Thunderbird now for over a month and am delighted with its performance. So much so that I chose Thunderbird as the mail handler on a new laptop for my wife.

I have three mail (POP) accounts on my own desktop computer and utilize the Unified Folders mode for most everything. My wife has only a single gmail (POP) account, the only one active on the new laptop. The trouble is, there is no Junk mail folder for that account on her laptop. I probably saw this initially and figured that the folder would appear as soon as something went into it. But with some mail accumulated over the past few days, nothing has gone in AND... messages in the Inbox that are manually marked as Junk go from boldface to normal font (as if they were read), but do not disappear into the nonexistent Junk folder. I have Junk folders on all three of my desktop computer accounts, all of which function as expected. What might be going on here?

I have used AT&T Websites Mail for years for my domain, but that's all going away at the end of the month. To recover and preserve my emails I've installed Thunderbird as pop server to store all emails on my local desktop. My inbox was accessed and downloaded successfully, however, over the years I have sorted much of the mail I have received into topic specific folders. Thunderbird did not access or download those folders onto my desktop. on my desktop and while it successfully connected with my email account and downloaded all contents of my inbox none of the category folders, nor did it bring over Sent or Draft folders. I've gone through the settings but don't see anything obvious. What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

I have six IMAP email accounts that will cease to exist in a few weeks when I don't renew the domain/hosting where they reside.

Most of these accounts include invoices for purchases, and serial numbers etc that I need to have access to after the accounts will die, so just being able to read them offline. Even down the track when I inevitably build a new PC, I'll still want to have access to theses messages offline.

What is best practice for archiving or backing up these so I can still read them in future? Is there a way to archive so that I can read them in other clients in future? or I can only archive in a way that will be Thunderbird only?

Also... how do I get Thunderbird to allow me to read the messages from these accounts, without checking for new messages on these accounts, which would give error popups every time?

I've never had to do this before, and when I've searched around the results seem super confusing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In case its relevant, my current Thunderbird version is 115.12.1 and running latest update of Win 10.

Firefox was lagging everywhere: scrolling, switching folders in bookmarks, switching windows, switching tabs, opening settings, scrolling in settings...just everywhere. So I tried downgrading to v. 113. After downgrading via the ling in settings it still showed v. 114. I uninstalled firefox entirely and downloaded the loader for v 112. I installed it and it went thru whole install process to the point of asking to close and start Firefox. It didn't start. When I clicked on the icon it gave me a prompt that it didn't point to anything and asked if I wanted to delete it. I looked in program files folder but didn't find a folder for Firefox or Mozilla. I installed the developer edition and it worked but I don't want dark dev ed. Please help!

Hi,

At some point yesterday my thunderbird upgraded itself to 102.3.2, and since then its pretty much un-usable.

I can't see new email's in my inbox, even though I know they are there. (Luckily I also have web mail access). If I find an email, it opens all the email's in the thread, I don't want that, ever. I can't get it in date desc order, it says it is in view/sort by, but its not, scrolling around I can see email's newer below email's older, its in no particular order as far as I can see.

I've tried folder repair, and for a moment it all looks great and I can see today's email at the top, then it all goes back to how it was.

I've tried messing with the view settings, and actually most of the settings without any effect.

How can I get it back to how it was before the upgrade? Ordered by email's received decending?

FWIW I have 4 email accounts on this thunderbird, all on different servers and its affecting them all the same, none of them sort properly and I can't find new emails.

Any help would be very gratefully appreciated?

I'm moving from Outlook 2015 (ie the bought-outright version pre Office365) on W10 to Thunderbird on a new W11 PC.

I installed TB 31.8.0 on W10 system and imported contacts and emails. That all works except I get "Secure Connection Failed" for live.mozillamessaging.com. I've deleted cert*.db and key*.db files and rebooted but it hasn't gone away.

[Probably not relevant: but I'm also not receiving the confirm-your-email message from Mozilla, and could only join this forum via the time-out reminder which did get through. But my test messages arrive OK.]

(Spoiler alert: this is nothing to the problems I'm getting on the W11 install!)

Hi, In a new Windows 11 PC Thunderbird 115.81.1 (64-bit) was installed. Then I did /Server Settings/Message storage/Local Directory/F:Mail

The F:\Mail is an external USB-drive. The left pane then showed two main folders:

x@y.no Local Folders

In both of these there is an Inbox sub-folder. The one under "Local Folders" shall be set as the "Global Inbox". In many pages on the web, e.g. a MozillaZine page, it is explained how to do this. The key point here is to navigate to the "Server Settings" and clock on the "Advanced button".

My problem is that there is none; see the uploaded image.

Could anyone, please, tell me where I did my error?

Best regards; ChG
