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

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.

The Firefox logo is missing from HTML file icons

After a recent migration of everything from an old PC to a new one, the Firefox logo does not appear in any of the HTML file icons on my new computer. They are all blank.

It apparently a problem unique to Firefox, and only involves the display of the Firefox logo. Although the icon is blank, when it is clicked, the document is opened by Firefox.

If I right-click on a blank HTML document icon and select "Properties", to the right of "Opens with:" is the Firefox logo. If I then click "OK", the Firefox logo remains in the "Properties" window, but the icon remains blank.

If I click on "Change", select "Microsoft Edge" and click "OK", the "Microsoft Edge" logo appears to the right of "Opens with:", and the HTML document icon also displays the Microsoft Edge logo.

There is a similar result when I select "Google Chrome", "Internet Explorer", or even "Notepad". The corresponding logo appears in the HTML document icons.

Any and all suggestions are welcomed.

T'Bird Doesn't Respond to "Get all messages" But Works on Individual Accounts

Hello: I was forced by Microsoft to reinstall Windows 10 and when I did, suddenly, T'Bird does not respond to either the "Get All New Messages" Button or the "File | Get New Messages For | All Accounts". If instead, I click on: "File | Get New Messages For | Current Account", it works fine! My current T'Bird Version is 78.1.0 (64-bit) but I presume that's the version I was using before (I always update when T'Bird asks me to). I am using Windows 10, version 2004, x64. This is very strange behavior that I have never seen before - I use the button (actually it's the top choice in a drop-down list) all the time. I would appreciate any help you can give me. I see there is an extension "Get All Mail Button for TB78++" which seems to imply that version 78 stopped this working but I would be very, very surprised if I was still using version 68 (that's the last version I have downloaded prior to version 78.

Using MacBookPro . After going to FIREFOX and logging in to AOL, when I try to download emails, the loading indicator bar goes about 2/3rd and stops. No problem if I have SAFARI as browser and no problems going to other sites on FIREFOX. It only happens when I try to download email from AOL, using the FIREFOX....Any suggestions?...NOTE: This problem only started two days ago. Up until that time,(over many years, I never experienced this. Also I'm no whiz-bang on the computer, other than being able to log in and do emails.

Opening old email file in Mac Mail (or Tbird)

Hi, helpers! I'm running Tbird 78.8.1 on a new, up-to-date Mac running the latest Big Sur.

I had to wipe my previous computer (long story) and I was careful to export the file containing my old Tbird emails to Dropbox. On the new Mac, I'm using Mac Mail.

I'd like to: 1. import those emails to Mac Mail, OR - if that turns out to be impossible, 2. import them into Tbird on this new computer.

To save the emails before I wiped the old computer, I looked up the instructions and exported the email archive from my profile. The file is named "ymm1vh1i.default". From there I can drill down to: /data reporting/archived/ to two folders, labeled 2021-02, and 2021-03. The first of those contains 27 files; the second, 5 files. All those files end in .jsonlz4. They can't be opened by anything on the Mac.

Can I retrieve those files with either Mac or Thunderbird? And - gawd, I hope the answer isn't "yes" - does this mean there are only 32 saved emails, total?

Thanks so much!
