Good evening,

since I upgraded to version 78, I've been experiencing two issues: 1) the "Delivery status notification" option doesn't work on one of my email addresses (it works fine on the others); 2) I don't receive emails from the pop3 server of another of my email addresses (I can download them regularly on my mobile mail app). I have already reported this to the relevant service providers, but they replied that the problems do not depend on their servers. Any suggestons? Are they bugs? Thanks in advance. Paolo Cutini

Hi I'm using Thunderbird 78.2.2 on a Win 10 machine and when I go to send an email and press the "send" button nothing happens and I get a popup window that appears on the top right under "check" that lists recipients and asks to "send or cancel". How do I disable this feature? it's a complete pain in the rear if you get my meaning! I have attached an image of the problem. I've never had this happen before.. it just started maybe with this version. I can NOT find any setting to remove or stop it from happening. No messages are sent until you hit "send" in the popup window. NO emails can be sent unless you go through this step. Many thanks in advance... I hope someone can help me.

Today I got an email from someone and answered it. I wanted to go back and read it again and I couldn't find it. It was not in my inbox. I have it set up to keep my replies in a thread in the inbox. My reply wasn't there either.

I had to do the big global search (through all the email accounts) and that was able to find the messages. however, it says they are in the Inbox, and they are not. when I click on "show in containing folder" it goes to the inbox but it's not there.

When I view the same account on my android phone (with AquaMail) the messages are right there in the inbox like they should be. I notice other messages are missing too, they are there on my phone/aquamail and not on my desktop/thunderbird. the curious thing is that thunderbird can find them in the global search not from inside the folder where they actually are. There are now several of these emails from today, that are there on the webserver but not showing up on my Desktop Thunderbird (yes It is set up for imap).

any ideas? this is scary that some of my emails are just disappearing.

thanks. gary in vermont

Hi,

Yesterday and today, Thunderbird has been acting strangely in its interactions with Gmail. For a while yesterday I could not send email -- I got a message that the outgoing SMTP password was wrong (it wasn't). Then, after a few hours, the problem went away.

But now, today, it is back. Same experience as yesterday. Then, an hour later, sending mail worked. Meanwhile, in receiving mail, "Host Contacted, Sending Login Information" takes 10-20 seconds instead of being almost instantaneous.

It seems something wonky is happening with both Send and Receive and I am wondering if it is my particular setup or something more widespread.

I am running the latest version of Thunderbird on a Macbook Air, OS 10.15.6

Thanks for any insights you can offer!

Using Thunderbird 68.11.0 on Windows 10.

To reproduce, set:

Options / Display / Advanced / Reading: Check "Automatically mark messages as read" - After displaying for 6 seconds

View / Layout:

  • Classic pane
  • folder pane
  • message pane
  1. Click on an unread message.
  2. As soon as it's loaded in the message pane, switch to another message.
  3. 6 seconds later, the message you viewed for only a second will be marked as read.

Here's the crazy part: it is marked as read exactly X seconds after loading, where X is what you have set in "After displaying for X seconds"

I change that to 4 seconds, the message is marked read 4 seconds after loading. 10 seconds, it waits that long.

Note: if I uncheck "Automatically mark messages as read", that is honored.

Also, the feature works fine in Safe Mode. However, I have very few add-ons and they are all very popular:

  • Cardbook
  • Lightning
  • Provider for Google Calendar

Can't imagine any of those interfering. Thanks for any ideas.

I have Restore Previous Session on Startup unchecked, but Firefox keeps trying to do it anyway. When I have to shut it down because it is not responding, it goes to the bad page when I start it again and gets stuck again. I just got the "We are having trouble restoring your previous session" page, so at least I have a choice now, but why is it trying to restore the previous session when I have the option unchecked?

So I am having trouble with my email sending. As soon as I hit reply, reply all, or new message (using a specific account) not all the email addresses I have on there. It immediately freezes up and I have to force close thunderbird. This only happens to one specific email address as I have 3 email addresses tied into thunderbird and have been using this for many years now without any issue. This just started happening this morning.

If anyone has any idea or needs any more insight please let me know. Thanks in advanced.

Edit: restarted the computer in safe mode with networking and relaunched thunderbird and it works now. But with a normal start it does not work. I am just using windows defender as the anti virus so the program isn't being held by an AV.

NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

I have four email accounts set up in Thunderbird. One is personal through hughesnet, and three are business through justhost. Two days ago, my hughesnet email account stopped receiving emails. It will also not send any messages (I get a timed out error message). I am still receiving email through my business email accounts. I can access my hughesnet email by logging into webmail directly and by using Mail on Windows 10 instead of Thunderbird. I use the POP3 setting because I want to store my emails on my computer. Hughesnet is no help. I'm not sure what happened two days ago - and why all of a sudden I stopped receiving my hughesnet emails in Thunderbird only. I do have McAfee software - maybe it is the problem, but don't know what could have changed suddenly. I did a google search on this problem, and other people seem to have had this issue in the past, but the solutions weren't posted other than to try Thunderbird in Safe Mode - which didn't help. I'm not sure what the correct server and SMTP settings, ports and authentication methods should be -so I don't know if the ones setup long ago are the right ones and if they were somehow changed. I'd appreciate very much any help in solving this mystery. thanks
