I've recently migrated to Thunderbird, from Apple Mail. I've managed to establish one email account (which runs through Google email servers) but ran into trouble when I tried to add my iCloud account. I've tried 3 times to add the same account, and it fails every time. On attempt one, I generated an app-specific password to use - however this was rejected by TB - the message being : 'unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password" I made sure the user name was entered correctly (ie without the '@iCloud.com' part, and checked the password was correctly entered. I also checked the port settings, server addresses etc. Please see attached file.

I also generated a new app specific password and tried that - same result. I tried the original iCloud password too - still no luck.

Please help...

I have been using Firefox as my main browser for a while and I like it.

I have noticed that some interactive parts on some websites are missing when using Firefox. On the other hand, when using Google Chrome everything works fine.

I am attaching 2 screenshots showing that the button "Start the Chat" is missing when using the Firefox browser compared to when using Google Chrome.

Why is that?

I recently received an email with the "Disposition-Notification-To" header set. When I read the email, my Thunderbird client sent a "read receipt" to the sender to inform them I had read the email.

I do not want Thunderbird to do this. How do I prevent it?

Looking through the configuration options, the only vaguely relevant setting I can find is "Determine how Thunderbird handles return receipts". I don't know if this is the correct thing to set but, even if it is, it doesn't seem to work. Under "When I receive a request for a return receipt", it's already set to "Never send a return receipt". I also have Thunderbird set up to block remote content in the message to prevent html-based read receipts, so how is my client still sending them?

I only know that this one was sent because the email address it sent to was faulty so I received a failed mail delivery message. Who knows how many others Thunderbird is sending that I'm simply not aware of!

Apologies if this has already been answered but i honestly don't know what terms to search for to find the correct answer. Problem: My gmail account receives email from a BT Internet account. When I reply the owner of the BT Internet account doesn't receive my email so I have to remember to change the "to:" address to one of their other email accounts. Sometimes I forget and a few days later wonder why they haven't replied. Can I automate this? (I'm not going to try and resolve the source of the problem which is probably the BT Internet account because the user is elderly and I'm remote from them). I did try to set up a message filter ("After Sending" ticked, "To" contains abc@btinternet.com, "Forward Message to" abc@otherdomain.com) but it only works when run manually and even then it forwards everything that matches in my sent folder. I don't really want to forward the message, I want to change the "to:" address. Is what I'm asking possible (assuming I've described it in sufficient detail!). Many thanks for your help.

Hi guys,

Back in 2018 when I started using Thunderbird I check in for an option to save all emails - sent and received on my computer hard dick. Now I'm out of space and I want to delete those and opt out of that setting.

My questions are two: 1. How do I opt out form the setting? 2. If I do opt out, I'm still going to have the emails sent and received on my email right, they are not going to go away forever? I presume you should be keeping them on cloud or something?

Please let me know. Regards Yosif

Hello, I recently backed up all my emails from Outlook to Thunderbird.

1) I want to delete my email account from Outlook, as I am not using the email anymore, but just want to save all of the emails. Once I delete Outlook, will all of my emails remain in Thunderbird?

2) I want to save all of my emails in a folder on my computer, so I can read them without the use of the internet. I created a folder, and copied the emails into the folder. However, when I click on it to open, it uses the Thenderbird program in order to open and read the email. Will you please provide specific instructions on how to create an offline backup of the emails?

Thank you, and have a wonderful day! :)

Gentlemen, Good Morning to all.

We are software developers and system integrators and have been loyal users of Thunderbird. This morning, after a few days of holiday here in the USA, I was cleaning-up by Inbox and created and ran a few new rules. They seemed to have run and moved messages to the intended folders. At some point, when the view came back to the Inbox, I noticed the list was empty.

I assumed it was a refresh error and rebooted the Windows 10 Pro desktop computer. When I went back to the InBox, I had two messages -- one from 0301 hrs this morning and the other from a few hours later.

I assumed that the local database had gotten corrupted to look around for the tools to rebuild the DB. That did not solve any problems.

I started to explore the mail account and found that TB could display the messages in the folders, but not the Inbox. Since since this account is more than 15 years old, I moved thru a bunch of folders to see if there were relatively new messages. All seems to be fine at the folder-level.

Since we operate our own mail server, I went to that machine and looked at the mail folders being managed by ICEWARP. I could access the messages thru the web mail interface. Looking at the OS, there are 114,866 files --most of them with a .IMAP suffix and 241 folders, which seemed to mostly be updated around 0523 hrs.

I've rebooted the server a few times,,but that did not resolve the problems. I've sent a new message, which arrived in the Inbox and was readable.

I've checked to confirm that all folders are Subscribed to. Yup. All have a checkmark.

So, now there are the 3 rquestions: 1. Has anyone seen this problem before and what was the cause? 2. What do I need to do to get Thunderbird 91.3.2. (32-bit) to recognize the message files? 3. If I cannot get TB to recognize the files when connected to the mail server, can I use IMPORTEXPORTTOOLS V11.1 to import the files from removable media?

Any assistance would be appreciated as I need access to the emails.

Thank you

Hi all!

To test this I did a complete fresh install of Firefox on Android. After installation I paired Firefox with my account via firefox.com/pair. On my PC the main password is activated and supposed to protect my passwords via encryption. After pairing and enabling the password sync option all my stored passwords are available on the Android phone. And I even can have a look at them in clear text.

This is a huge problem since it never asked me for my main password. This password is supposed to be required to decrypt this data. Which means this data is not encrypted on the Firefox servers. Which in turn means even my passwords I use on the PC are not secure.

According to all documentation I read until now I was assuming my data is only stored encrypted and can only be restored with the main password. Right now I don't really know what to do. I require a secure password store.

Many Greetings! Remo

How I could disable the single message search (message open, press ctrl+F) from automatically going back to the top of message while searching a phrase from within single e-mail message?

Why I cannot get alert pop-up saying: "You reached the end of the message. Do you want to continue from top" and Thunderbird insisting on me selecting "yes" or "no"?

In other words, what advantage I or Mozilla gets from me missing the pale gray text "Reached end of page, continued from top" on white background while I'm trying to find the search phrase in certain context on my mail message?

Whenever I click the PiP floating icon on video-hosting sites such as YouTube, the PiP window pops up but does not stay on top. It is immediately hidden by other windows. I always need to open the window menu and enable "Always on Top". Shouldn't this be enabled by default? Is there anything I can do to make it enable by default?

For reference, I'm using GNOME 41.1 on Manjaro Linux.
