My ISP is: runbox.com. Have used it (for a 3-4 years, never had any problems. Email program: Thunderbird (since Eudora stopped and never had any problems)

Now, I ended up in the hospital for a long period of time and meanwhile my ISP subscription ran out. I have renewed my subscription now and have no problem with Runbox but I cannot get my email to Thunderbird.

Under Thunderbird Account Settings: Outgoing Server (SMTP): Runbox Mail – mail.runbox.com .

Is this correct?

Shouldn’t there be an Incoming too?

I would appreciate help how to get my email to Thunderbird. May I get the response by email or how to I find a response? 3bm9@runbox.com

What is the specific URL that is required to access auto-updates from the client? As an enterprise, we have locked down devices that have limited Internet connectivity. Our security area will not open the entire download area, so we are looking for the specific URL or web address that is needed so we can still auto-update clients. We want to move more people to Firefox, but need to get this working first.

I have two windows 10 desk top computers in independent networks and both will not download emails from the server using Thunderbird. They timeout. I have checked passwords and made sure they are updated but to no avail. I downloaded the Thunderbird program again and reinstalled over the top. I did not delete the program. Any advice would be appreciated.

I recently had to reinstall Thunderbird because it stopped downloading my emails (could still send them). I started a new profile but would like to go back to my old one with about 10 years of archived emails. I see what I think is my old and new profile folder under the profiles directory. The new one has the extension "default-release" while the old one has "default". I tried to remove the new one and got an error message that profile could not be found. I also tried to change the extension of the old one to match the working new one but again, error says profile cannot be found. Any ideas how to go back to the old profile and restore my old emails? Thanks for any help!

How can I get Thunderbird to install updates beside my current install so it doesn't clobber my current install?

Every so often, TB tells there are updates and wants to install them. And then I'm left with a conundrum:

  1. Do I let TB update itself and possibly break some of my extensions jsut so that I can stay current?
  2. Or do I tell TB to f-off and not install the updates because I don't want to deal with the possibility of a bunch of broken crap. And get left behind on an unsupported version of TB which when I am forced to upgrade (or install TB on a new or reinstalled computer, the extensions in my restored profile are all incompatible.

Dammed if I do, Dammed if I don't.

And why do I even need to make such a crappy choice? (Yes, I'm feeling bitchy because I just spent an hour tryin to get my critical extensions (Google Calendar Provider and GContact Sync) working after a TB upgrade that I stupidly let TB foist on me (and it still isn't working).

As far as I can tell, I'm in this situation because: 1) TB developers aren't expected to maintain backwards compatibility 2) TB has chosen not to provide any means for a TB user to check the compatibility of their currently installed extensions with the update that TB is delivering automatically. 3) TB has chosen not to provide any way to revert an update to TB to the state it was in before the update.

This leaves users who don't want to be TB experts stuck because we have to have intimate knowledge of TBs workings to clean up the mess that a TB update can leave us with.

Googling "Thunderbird XXX broke my extensions" or "How can I revert a Thunderbird update?" yeilds lots of hits so I know I am not the only one who keeps running into this.

I have found all sorts of very technical articles on how to fix the situation by reinstalling an older version of TB. But if we are letting TB update itself, most people don't know what version they were on immediately before this last update that broke stuff.

So some suggestions for TB (roughly in order of increasing value): 1) Have a variable somewhere that contains the previous version of TB. 2) Have a command on the Help menu that downloads and reinstalls that version of TB automatically with no technical skills required. 3) Have TB automatically make a backup of it's installation so that it could be reinstalled more easily 4) Have TB install updates by downloading the new version and installing it beside my current install so that if I have any problems, I can run the old version while I wait for updates to the broken extensions. (I've found an article on how to install 2 versions of TB at the same time, so clearly this is doable; why not do it automatically?) 5) Have TB check all my extensions BEFORE installing the update and tell me which ones are incompatible and:

     a) Will have to be updated (automatically) after the update , or 
     b) Have no update available yet so just plain won't work after the update

Yes, I know that TB developers are volunteers and I appreciate all the work you do on the product. But really, does a product update process need to be so unpredictable and require so much technical knowledge to recover from? Have we consciously decided that TB should only be used by people technical enough to build it? (Are we only building it for ourselves?)

I have used TB for going on 20 years (well before GMail came out) and much prefer it to competing products like MS Outlook. But I have to admit that this hellish upgrade nightmare has sent me looking for a replacement on several occasions already.
