when I delete an email that I no longer need from my inbox or any other folder, the deleted email does not go into the trash folder. it disappears completely. I have searched other folders such as spam and junk and its not there either, neither is it in my local folders. not really a problem except for when an email is deleted and I may want to review it again while it is in the trash folder. I've been putting up with this for months and would like to resolve it. tried searching for answers but no luck

As written in the subject, in the 78.4 version when selecting "Edit as New Message" the "To" field is not accessible. Is this a bug or a feature? In the latter case I would say it is less than ideal as at times it might be useful to modify the list of recipients. Thanks in advance for any help/clarification.

Bonjour, Mon Thundebird s'est mis à jour entre la version 68.12.1 vers la version 78.4.0. Depuis, certains dossiers ne s'affichent pas.

J'ai déjà eu ce problème qui m'avait obligé à revenir en arrière pour réinstaller la version 68.12.1

Y a t-il une solution ?

Merci

In connection with my migration from Outlook to Thunderbird I have two accounts in my Thunderbird for the same provider. One is called geoniel@casema.nl and the other is called Casema. Since the migration and until last week I have been receiving e-mails at "geoniel@casema.nl. My folders are under Casema.

I have tried repeatedly to move all my e-mails in my In box of geoniel@casema.nl to Casema. Nothing happens. I have highlighted all e-mails in geoniel@casema.nl, right clicked and selected to move them to Casema. Instead of the desired results they all appear under a new Archive folder under geoniel@casema.nl.

I have been able to move individual e-mails but not such a large amount at once. How can I do that? Thank you for your reply.

On the latest update from Thunderbird - 78.4.0 (32) bit it has changed the format completely. Is it possible to go back to a previous version, the one just before? And if so to stop any more updating renewals?


Alternatively is there any chance in the future that the present layout is going to be changed once again, as to be honest I don't know if I can live with it.

I don't want to change if things can go back to the way they were.

I've been using the newly redesigned Thunderbird and have a number of problems with it. Chief among them is the lack of apparent involvement by human factors experts when it comes to the design of the windows seen by the user of the tool and to the communication to customers about changes. Your programmers seem to have made the mistake that my programmers used to make back when I had a lot of them reporting to me - they do things that seem fine to young people but are not fine for older people. For example, when I am sending a new email it is very hard to read some of the commands and options because the text appear to be light grey instead of DARK BLACK against a white background (perhaps it is just that it is not bold when it ought to be), and the fonts are often quite small. This may seem fine to the 20-year-olds who are developing this software, but it is a real problem for the 76-year-olds like myself who try to use it. It took me several days of hard work to finally see how to add a "cc" to an email under your new system.

To complicate matters, the changes were introduced with no notice and no information about how to do relatively simple things (such as including a cc in an email!). And when I searched your web site for help I could find no place to make suggestions for improvement or to point out problems, only places where I could ask questions and hope the automated help system would come up with something that matched my problem.

So, to repeat, is there any way to communicate suggestions for improvement to those responsible for Thunderbird?

I just upgraded to ver 78 and can no longer download messages from my yahoo (ATT) account. I get a message that sending my password did not succeed. I am still able to send messages, and I've gone into options and verified that my passwords are still correct. My server settings are;

POP Mail Server pop.att.yahoo.com Port 995 fall072@att.net SSL/TLS Normal password

Don't know if this matters, but ATT made a change a while back requiring a 'Secure mail key' which changed my smtp password, but this is also still correct in my settings. The link below describes this change https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/email-support/KM1240462?gsi=6ka96l

If no one has a fix for this, is there a way I can download ver 68 and revert back? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Woody

Hi to all! I've recently decided try using Thunderbird to manage my multiple mailboxes. I faced 2 problems: 1) When I forwarded email the attachments size in total must have been 23mb. But when i forwarded Thunderbird warned me that size is 31,5mb. What's the deal with that? 2) after ignoring and sending email anyway I received a notification that it didn't save in Sent folder.. in Fact it did. In any case the message is disturbing. 3) After sending Thunderbird left a Draft of the same mail thread.

Hope you can help me. All settings in Thunderbird are default.

I use Thunderbird to download my e-mails from three domains. - yahoo.com.au - russell.im - anglosunshine.com

The latter two are hosted by Marcaria.com

After migrating to version 78 of Thunderbird, I had to re-authenticate with Yahoo - which was successful - to continue downloading my e-mail, but e-mails from russell.im and anglosunshine.com ceased. No error is thrown up. I tried: - removing the password - to prompt for new password to be entered. No prompt. - turning off my Nortons firewall - no effect - setting up new account - to check the server settings. Server settings identical.

I can view the e-mails by a web client (from Marcaria.com).

the problem seems to be linked to Thunderbird. Any help please?

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

I have 2 email accounts associated with thunderbird.

I removed one of them. When removing it, it asked me if i wanted to remove all data. I did not select the check box, meaning I did not want it to remove the email messages in the local folder.

Now, the messages are gone. Why?

My primary Thunderbird usage remains on my Windows 7 computers. Until recently, I needed only to copy the email files of PROFILES over to my Windows 10 computers for the Windows 10 version of Thunderbird to continue working. The last several updates of Thunderbird have botched that straight forward procedure so that when I copy the PROFILES over to Windows 10 after an update on Windows 7, the Windows 10 version tells me that it flatly refuses to work. Only by then copying the entirety of the Mozilla Thunderbird directory from Program Files (x86) is the Windows 10 version then willing to proceed to function at all. Even then, it demands that I REINSTALL my essential "Manually Sort Folders" function each and every time that I have replaced the PROFILES files. Is there any cure for this messiness other than (1) copying Mozilla Thunderbird directory from Program Files after each nonsense "update" along with the PROFILES #OR# (2) refusing to allow updates to my primary Windows 7 installation of Thunderbird. I don't know what, if anything relevant, I might be missing by refusing to allow updates but the expansion of time and energy for maintaining a functional Thunderbird installation on Windows 10 (without allowing it to gather new emails that aren't in my Windows 7 version by allowing it access to the Internet). But forcing updates across multiple systems is a problematic procedure unless it is done on a "forgiving" basis not currently extant.
