I'm looking for a message filter function that will wait a specified period of time before performing what the rest of the filter does whatever it is tasked to do. For instance, I want to have an incoming message sit in the inbox until it moves to a local folder some time later. This would allow me to see it from a device that can't see local folders (like a mobile phone). I can't find anything in extensions. Any thoughts?

Related: https://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=3079875 I used to daily version 52, and this would allow you to in windows set it to show the new mail tray icon, but hide the normal tray icon.

Seems since the introduction of mail.biff, this was unified and it's no longer seperate entries in the windows Taskbar Settings -> Select which Icons appear on the taskbar menu. Attached image shows the 2 old entries, and the singular new one which is the same, unread notification or not in the tray icon. I can only select/deselect one thunderbird entry here, which just toggles if it's there at all or not.

I do not wish to see the normal tray icon. I wish for the tray icon to show in my tray bar when there's a new/unread message.

This seems to be a thing that was regressed and fixed in v68, and then became an issue again with biff's introduction in v91 forward?

Thanks for your time.

I have been using Thunderbird since the demise of Eudora. My configuration file is messed up and I would like to clean it up without losing everything. I have many accounts on different platforms. My unified inbox no longer works. It was working for my gmail accounts, but now nothing shows up in it. When looking through some accounts, there were multiple copies of emails in the archive file, and I never put them there.

Is there some way to preserve things like signature files and personalities and sever configurations, and set up thunderbird like a new install preserving the above and my contacts? It is a real mess now. I think there are multiple configuration files and I would like to delete some of them, but am afraid to.

Hi there,

I'm having some difficulty getting my email signature for my new job set up correctly.

I want the company logo to appear on the left, with my details to the right of the logo, as seen in the first screenshot.

However, currently, the text appears incorrectly underneath the company logo. I have tried pasting the signature into a blank email, generating the HTML code and pasting that into the signature text box, yet it still displays incorrectly when sending an email.

The HTML for my email signature is as follows:

<tr>

 <td style="width:141.5pt;padding:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt" width="189"
   valign="top">

 </td>
 <td style="width:6.0cm;padding:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt" width="227"
   valign="top">

I am using Thunderbird 115.11.1 (32-bit) to manage 6 different email accounts for work and personal. I would like to be able to organize "Collected Addresses" according to the account they were used from.

Eg. I want each account to have it's own unique Collected Addresses address book Collected Addresses - Account 1 Collected Addresses - Account 2 Collected Addresses - Account 3 Collected Addresses - Account 4 Collected Addresses - Account 5 Collected Addresses - Account 6

I've looked online and there are some instructions, but they reference settings that I cannot find. Is there a way to do this?

TIA

Basically, when I have a threaded message, I don't see the > to drop down information to show the threads from the subject pane in the subject field.

I have gone to view, sort by threaded. I'm led to believe I should see something like this:

Subject : Top Level of Thread

 |
 ---> Subject : Re: Top Level of Thread
      |
      ---> Subect : Re: Top Level of Thread

But I see none of that. It's just one flat subject. It doesn't even tell me someone has replied to me. I have to go into the mail to see that. I have added the conversations add on just to get a glance of that, because I'm seeing nothing.

Image attached of what I see.

My company has a new name and I need to create a new signature. Now I have a problem: I have almost 200 email templates or drafts. The "old" signature is saved in these emails. I have created the new signature with the new name, but it doesn't seem to update automatically for emails in the templates or drafts folder.

Do you have an idea how I could solve this elegantly without having to edit all 200 mails manually?

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a "search and replace" command.

Many thanks for your help

Hi. Is there a way to disable this popup in firefox android? I see it's an option on desktop via support:config, but not mobile. It is persistent and takes up a good chunk of the screen. When downloading a lot of images in a row it makes navigation difficult.

I'm confident there's a way bc I'm sure tons of us have been asking the same question for a long time now. If not - 'new feature/bug request' I/we will do.

Thank you.

So on my macbook when I enable fullscreen the anmation is super weird. first it stretches the video to the top and then just expands to the whole screen, when I go out of fullscreen is stretches to the bottom and then goes out off fullscreen. for example on safari it just expands the video until it takes up the whole screen. I have gone in about:config and disabled the fullscreen animation but that did nothing.

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.

This is something I've never encountered, since I hardly ever go to the Sent folder except to look at something I sent. But this was a different task.

I've had a series of emails from a friend, that my wife wanted me to forward to her so she could see them. So I went to the Sent folder, and forwarded 3 of those emails to my wife. Then she told me she only got one so I went back to Sent and thought they would be at the top of the list, 1-2-3, but that was not what I found. Since those emails were each part of several different threads in the back and forth with my friend, it took me a long time to figure out which email to pick off and resend. I made sure I was sorting them by date, descending, but was bewildered that the listing had the ones I wanted embedded (see screenshot, with the ones I just sent highlighted in red)

So my question is, is there a setting where I could tell Tbird to sort strictly by send date?

I was able to change some of my message pane background by adding the following to the userContent.css file:

/* Thunderbird userContent.css */

@-moz-document url-prefix("imap:"),url-prefix("mailbox:"),url-prefix("news:") {

 body {

 }

} @-moz-document url-prefix("about:blank?compose") {

 body {
   background-color: #404552 !important;
 }

}

I also tried adding the following to my userChrome.css file: /* Message pane */

  1. msgHeaderView {
 background-color: #404552 !important;

}

  1. messagePane {
 background-color: #404552 !important;

}

Why do I still get these two dark gray areas (see attached)? What css do I need to add to get them to be the lighter grey?
