The company I contract with has thrown me a problem and I need some help resolving it. I have searched many internet sites and have seen many apps that claim to do the job of moving mbox to .pst or eml. I've seen procedures to move 1 email at a timr to Gmail and then importing to Outlook (onerous). I have no idea if any of the apps will do the job or not. Some claim to migrate folders and I have lots of those I would like to keep.

Problem - I have to migrate to Microsoft Outlook 2016 (Later on to 365).

I currently use pop mail and store my messages locally. I have close to 1gb of messages stored in the POP Mail folder and I guess some old mail in an imap mail folder. The dates are messed up, because I had a Thunderbird crash and had to reinstall and import via a backed up profile.

What is most important is what is in my current inbox and multiple folders I use on my desktop. I can live without the rest.

So can anyone recommend a way either via a reliable app, or manually to migrate my inbox and local folders to Outlook from Thunderbird?

Thank you.

Hi. I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for years on my PC, getting email there from both Comcast and gmail. My PC suddenly died. I have a new all-in-one PC arriving today. How do I install Thunderbird? In particular, I’m wondering if I will lose my contacts and previously received emails? I am confused and concerned because the old PC is not operational for any kind of “migration.” Thank you.

I migrated from Windows Live Mail to TB. As recommended, I installed Ver 31, transferred the files, email and contacts. It all seems to work, picks up and sends email. I understood that it was supposed to upgrade to the latest version. The Help menu shows that this (31) IS the latest version. When I manually upgrade to 91, It will not stop asking me for the password, no matter how many times I enter it. I have checked that the server settings are all the same. What am I supposed to do here? Is there a fix for this? Dougal

Thunderbird updater does not work with any version, including after complete reinstall

Regardless of what version and CPU architecture of Thunderbird is installed, the auto updater keeps telling me that it cannot update Thunderbird and suggests that I visit Thunderbird's website to download the latest version.

Searches related to this problem all either involve Avast antivirus, which I am not using (I use F-Secure TOTAL) or very obsolete versions. To the best of my knowledge, I do not have any specific website blocked in my network, apart from Facebook, and despite searching, I cannot find out any debug options to determine the cause of the update failure.

I have tried uninstalling the product and reinstalling it, also changing between 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Currently running 78.9.1 64-bit under Windows in the Release channel.

I did a dumb thing and need help recovering. I purchased the Mozilla VPN and it asked for a email. I thought it was creating an account but it never asked for a password. After the transaction it said an email was sent to that new xxx@mozilla.com email. So now I have a mozilla email that is not associated with an account, nor a password. I am stuck trying to figure out how to access that email. I did create a FireFox account using a gmail account and tried using the mozilla email address as the secondary email but it said that email was already used. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Hi, I've got an issue when I ask to download and save a file from a website. The macOS finder window is well openened, but partially mixed with the current web page. it not put on the top. Most often, I must open another app, like Safari and come back to Firefox in order to put it on the top and to be able to change the file name, select de folder and at the end save the file. Attached sample.

It is the same when I ask from Firefox menu to Save As a web page.


Thank you for your feedback.

I updated my Thunderbird version (78.14.0) recently, and have noticed a significant reduction in the size of the email folder:

"C:\Users\loginID\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird"

The compressed copy went from 6GB+ down to 1.4GB. I did not perform any Compact Folder or Repair Folder.

Does anyone know if the latest version of Thunderbird gets rid of a lot of junk? That would explain why the folder size went down.

I just installed Thunderbird 91.0 on a new Mac laptop and successfully connected to my office email (managed through Google G-mail), but only 2,000 emails will load into Thunderbird's INBOX or SENT MAIL. (and yes, I can see all the "sub-folders"/filter tags I created in Google) Thunderbird's Account Settings / Synchronization & Storage is set to "Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age" yet each email folder is only showing 2,000 emails. I have over 200,000 emails in this account online that want loaded into Thunderbird. How can this task be accomplished?

seriously finding that it appears Everyone is losing open tabs with the update mozilla- this is a serious breach of trust

i have looked at several answers to the MANY posts with the exact same issue and it appears that the only solution is to have programmer level skills or suck it up

i have loved firefox for Years - and i have Never heard of anyone having such a stupid upgrade problem with No Warning

have you lowered your standards that much

(as this is the only place i can offer feedback, as there is nothing to actually connect to mozilla - take this as a small request for assistance from the community and a large wtw to the company)

Have tried a few ways to transfer Tbird data including the process on site video.

Each time one of my email accounts did not transfer Folders, email in those folders and older unfoldered emails to Inbox of same email account. Newer (30 day) did indeed transfer.

Other email addresses without folders did fine and address books seem intact.

It's actually transferring from Tbird 78.13.0 on the 32 bit machine to Tbird 91.0.3 on the new 64 bit one

Thanks in advance for any help
