Using this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer

I moved profiles from old to new computer. When I restart on the new computer, it is just starting over, doesn't know anything from my old computer's thunderbird.

Both windows 10. New computer says 78.11.0 (64 bit) Old computer says 78.11.0 (32 bit) Note both computers are 64 bit.

Top left on old computer is old style "File Edit View Go Message ..." Underneath that are tabs like inbox and troubleshooting information"

Top left on new computer is a tab saying home, the tab body says welcome to thunderbird.

So I gather there is incompatibility of the data between 32 and 64 bit? Is there a place to download the 32 bit?

Am I confused what the real issue is?

Hi,

How can I add a spam folder to all my Thunderbird accounts that will download all the emails that got thrown in the spam / junk folder by the provider? For example, I have regularly that I miss emails that normally aren't marked as spam (due to trusted senders) but nevertheless end up in a spam folder on, for example a hotmail account. The problem is, now I can only see those mails when I log into that account on the site itself, not through Thunderbird. Is it possible at all to download those the same way as the inbox mails are being downloaded into TB? Sometimes I miss some mails when they end up in the spam folder because they are automatically deleted within 10 days or so.

Thanks :), Dan

Migrate and update 52.9.1 from Win7 to Win10

Currently I am running Thunderbird 52.9.1 on Windows 7, without add-ons, extensions, or Lightning.

I'm setting up a new Win10 PC. I figure it's time to update Thunderbird to a more current version on the new PC.

What is generally considered to be the best and most stable recent version?

I have read the process on how to update from older previous versions that goes like this:

Backup your profile. Then install and run each of the following versions for your OS and language which you will find at http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/ 5.0 for example http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/5.0/win32/en-US/

12.0.1 (15.0.1 skip) 17.0.8 24.8.0 (38.0.8 skip) 45.8.0 52.9.1

Then do Help > About until you get to version 68. Stay on version 68 until you get prompted to update to version 78.

Since I already am at 52.9.1 on Win7 I assume I should:

- backup my 52.9.1 profile on Win7 (see questions below about profile),

- install 52.9.1 on Win10 and run it,

- then do Help > About until I get to version 68. Stay on version 68 until I get prompted to update to version 78.

Is that what I should do?

I will have the same drives and folders structure in place on Win10 as I do on Win7. My plan is to copy my backed up 52.9.1 profile on Win7 to that same corresponding folder on Win10.

Is that what I should do?

Should I copy my backed up 52.9.1 profile from Win7 to Win10 before or after I install 52.9.1 on Win 10?

Should I run 52.9.1 on Win10 for the first time before or after I have copied my backed up 52.9.1 profile from Win7 to that same corresponding folder on Win10?

Is there anything else I should be aware of?

Thanks!

What setting will stop the constant notice "Download the latest version of Firefox." I don't want 20 notices per day. It's like having a child in the backseat "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" How many times do I have to click the "Dismiss" button before this stupid software understands that I do not want updates? I've noticed that this is a common complaint. Stop the bullying by making people choose automatic updates. Many times things get messed up on my computer with updates and it is not worth the aggravation. Candace M.

My laptop was running really slow and a computer repair shop did a reload of the operating system to remove any issues. I am trying to install the other apps. When I installed TBird, I added 5 emails apps (2 comcast, 2 gmail, 1 sbcglobal.net). All emails are working and pulled in the right data even the archived data, except for the sbcglobal.net account. The sbcglobal.net account only pulled in emails from 5/17/21 to current. I had archived probably the last 3 years but nothing came through on sbcglobal.net. Is there a way to recover emails prior to 5/17/21 for the current year and also the archived emails on sbcglobal.net? I did use a secure mail key for sbcglobal.net. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I've managed multiple profiles, and used the profile manager for years.

Usually, when I want to update/replace a session from one profile to another, these are the files I transfer.

When I launch the profile, it should open to the same tab as in the previous profile, and the tab count should be the same. That is, until today.

No matter what I try with the new profile, the same old session keeps coming up.

I use Thunderbird with multiple profiles for several different email addresses. I want to move the data from the default location (C:/users/xxx/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/...) to another drive. I was able to do this by copying the Thunderbird folder to the new location, and redirecting the program to look in the new location. This worked for a single email address, but hasn't brought up the other addresses. How do I recover those? Do I need to manually recreate the profiles inside Thunderbird?
