Several of my message filters do not run automatically. The "Filter Log" shows only one of the 49 active filters running. That one filter does not run with predictable results.

I am receiving 10-20 inbound messages per day that may well contain malware or spam. These each have a "ReturnPath" of "<>" and an "AuthenticationResults" that contains the string "dkim=none".

I am attempting to somehow identify and discard inbound messages whose "ReturnPath" is "<>" and whose "AuthenticationResults" contains the string "dkim=none".

I've made several different attempts using several different filter instances. Each works as expected when run manually from the pane that appears in response to tools->"Message Filters". Each of these invocations appears in the "Filter Log" when run manually

I see no evidence that any run automatically, even though I have clicked the checkbox to turn them on. I've tried setting the "Getting New Mail" dropdown to both "Filter before Junk Classification" and "Filter after Junk Classification" with no apparent difference in behavior.

I've tried turning on the "Periodically, every 10 minutes" option with no visible impact.

Many or most of my rules apparently work fine, because each moves a specific message from my inbox to a designated folder. Those moves all happen -- and yet the "Filter Log" shows no record of any of them.

I am running Thunderbird 115.9.0 (32-bit) on a Windows 10 Pro system. I'm a senior developer with more than four decades of professional development experience. I'm very familiar with rule systems.

My email provider is Rackspace, and their technical support is not responsive. This volume of spam/malware is making my email client unusable.

I am eager to pay a monthly support fee -- either directly or through any of the many online payment options such as "buy me a coffee" and such -- in exchange for effective technical support. I have been unable to find any such providers for Thunderbird.

I understand that this is a community of volunteers and I appreciate your attention. I invite any suggestions for workarounds or fixes.

Hey Gang -- Has anyone else experienced this?

Whenever I'm on NPR's website listening to a radio program, I can't access any other websites on separate tabs or windows. (they simply won't 'load' or even acknowledge any commands)

I find this to be very strange.

If anyone can help with this minor quandary I would be grateful.

Sincerely,

--Art

PS - I am using a PC desktop computer, running Windows 10 and using the latest Firefox version 124.0.2

In my attempt to help my wife with her email problems I have managed to totally screw up her profile. There now duplicate inboxes, duplicate local folders, duplicate Outlook Express Import files, etc.

Is it feasible to export/backup the inbox, address book, files&folders, Outlook Express Import files (but not the profile), then uninstall Thunderbird in order to start over? If so, how is the best way to do this?

She only has one email account on Thunderbird and is running Windows 10.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Give that I use TB as my desktop client to access my nyu.edu email (provided by google), and that recently I updated my password as periodically requested by nyu admin When I try to access nyu email a pop up screen come up asking to authenticate with imap.gmail.com. I click next and get a 403 Access Forbidden error (Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com.)

Solutions I have tried: 1. Clear cookies, history and cache on browsers and TB; 2. Changed default browsers (Ffox, Ch, Edge); 3. Deleted account in TB and created it again using instructions here https://www.nyu.edu/servicelink/KB0016473 4. Accessed my nyu email on browser to check user name and password. It works. I can access the email.

Nothing seems to work. Still get 403 error. As a result I am unable to authenticate and hence use the email account in TB.

I uninstalled Thunderbird on my Windows 10 computer, however when I downloaded and installed it again, I was able to recover most of what I needed from my previous profile, except my task list and tasks.

Having searched every article I was able, I could not find the file extension for tasks and/or task list nor when I do find it how to properly import into my new settings/profile which I am using.

Thank you for your help Rick

My Thunderbird stopped receiving emails. I am on a Mac. I am posting here because I looked through the list here. Others had the same problem but the conversation is now archived. I tried the offered solutions and they didn't work. So having just fixed mine, I'm posting my solution. Go to System Settings. to Passwords. Unlock Passwords by signing in. There you find your email service listed. Click on it and check that that password matches the password on your account on your email services website. If it doesn't, fix it. Then open Thunderbird on the menu bar at the top, go to Settings ( not Account Settings.) Go to Passwords, to Saved Passwords, click on that and it will show you a list of your saved logins. Below the list, you can click on Show Passwords to see what's there. I had a bad password in there. (I had more than one password that had been saved for Thunderbird.) I deleted all Thunderbird passwords. Then I closed and reopened Thunderbird, clicked Get Messages, filled in the correct password when asked. Bingo. My email downloaded into Thunderbird.

I have had a few emails that did not show up in the inbox listing, so the message count at the top indicated more messages than were listed. Doing a search showed them, and by moving them from the search results to another folder, and then re-searching and moving them back, caused most of them to appear. But not all - I still have a message count of 20, but only 19 listed, see photo 1. Photo 2 shows the hidden email (from Barry Chandler). So the email is there, it's just not visible!

Hello. I use youtube website as music player quite often (without premium) and play my favorite list of songs. Meantime, when Google started meddling with youtube due to their new offer as youtube premium I met two most annoying issues like "are You still watching" dialog and the behaviour where youtube just cleared "repeat list" function without my consent. Both issues was resolved with java scriplets I took from community.

Now I run into third issue but not sure how to diagnose it. If Firefox is in the background, or tab with youtube has no focus the playlists stops from time to time. The moment it stops is when next video should start playing. When browsing on different tab, I can see on Youtube tab that title of the video has changed (to the next video) and even the song started (for 1-2 seconds) then video pauses and word "playing" disappears from tab (normally there should be title on tab and "playing" word under title). It is not "are You still watching" dialog issue because if I move mouse cursor on youtube tab (even without setting focus on it) the player will continue - till next song.

The issue doesn't appear if youtube tab is active. I can't use developer tools in firefox because can't debugging website when tab of the site is not active (at least I don't know how). I tried to find solution with community but with no success. I allowed youtube to play video and sound always without exception in firefox preferences but it is not the solution.

Any tips?

I have installed TBSync for my addresses/contacts. Syncing works correctly between Thunderbird and iCloud (both ways). However, new entries created in Thunderbird (although correctly syncing with iCloud on the net) do not appear in the Mac Contacts app on the Mac desktop. Strangely, these entries appear on my iPad Contacts app. It is only entries created in Thunderbird that do not sync through to the desktop Contacts app. Yet I can create a new entry in my desktop app and it syncs through to Thunderbird correctly. I can also edit any entry on Thunderbird created on an Apple device and the changes go through to all my devices. It seems that the format used when creating a new entry in Thunderbird is creating a problem in the syncing process between my iCloud account and the desktop app. Any ideas?

I'm currently using Thunderbird version 115.9.0. For the last several months when I detach, delete or save an attachment, Thunderbird will duplicate the email. I then manually delete the duplicate.

This didn't happen the first several years I used Thunderbird. Is there some setting I missed? Any solution to prevent this from happening?

Thanks for any advice.
