Sorry I'm not making myself clear. I want to save the emails to where I can access them if needed later. After I have that I want to delete the older emails in Gmail to make the inbox and folders smaller. Thunderbird will then sync the inbox which will be considerably smaller. It appears that archiving will do this but I don't know how to copy the emails to Local Folders. It appears that Thunderbird will still be able to search & find the old emails if I need them. After deleting them, Thunderbird will be syncing the smaller inbox instead of all of them. I copied the Profiles directory from the appdata string to an external drive which it appears I have backed the profile up.

In anticipation of exporting a subfolder to pdf I moved and renamed it, then ended up moving it back. Not sure what happened in that process but... My 98 emails are in the subfolder when I view it in TB, but when I view it in explorer there is a .msf file but no actual file with that name. Looking through, it appears some other subfolders are missing too (in some cases the file and the .msf) but all the emails are there when I view through Thunderbird. I tried repairing the folder but that didn't help, and it won't seem to compact. I deleted the foldertree.json and that didn't help.

I am looking in Users/NAME/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/XXXXX/ImapMail/imap.ionos.com/FOLDER/SUBFOLDER/SUBFOLDER (this is the path with files that have today's date).

What's my next step? Thanks

My laptop using Windows7, the processor died. The hard drive is ok. I am now using Windows10 in a newer laptop. I don't know how to access all the data from the other. I don't think I did a back up. I've got both personal & business. Is there a way to retrieve my old Thunderbird info? [And just so you know, I learned my lesson about not backing up.] And thank you for any help!

Revisiting Assembling Message Issue

Currently using Windows 10, 22H2, Thunderbird 115.12.2. This PC has been working fine since it was built approximately January of this year, 2024. I have not installed any new software or made any major changes for several months. I'm using Bitdefender Total Security. Recently I started noticing this issue with Thunderbird (I've been using as long as it's been out.)

When composing a message, I now see on a regular basis at the lower left of the message window "Assembling message......." or "Assembling message......... Done". Thunderbird does not crash. If I continue to compose and send, the message always sends. So I'm not having the error some others have had in the past. But it does look like the message I'm typing may be having issues being put into the Drafts folder while it's being composed. That seems to be the only operation happening when the message appears.

I have seen this past week the messages sending and being placed into the Sent folder but there have been at least two messages identical to the ones sent that are still in Drafts and are not deleted after being sent. So whatever is going on seems to be a bug with the saving of the draft and then cleaning out Drafts after the message is sent. Note these are text only messages and I did not change any settings in Thunderbird after updating last week.

While Bitdefender updates on a regular basis and Thunderbird notifies me of updates when they are available (same with Firefox), those are the only items being updated so it seems something is going on. I am going to assume this is an issue with Thunderbird for the time being since nothing else has changed. I've gone through tips noted for those having errors sending messages when they get the Assembling message notification but I don't get any errors. Just a weirdness with the Drafts folder.

In the interest of safety, I don't want to turn off AV to test anything. I've also compacted folders to no avail. Seems that notification keeps coming back.

Any additional help would be appreciated.

I got this notification:

"You must have the 'Encrypt' button present in your compose window toolbar to be able to schedule messages with Send Later. If you removed it some point, you need to customize the toolbar and put it back. This is due to a Thunderbird bug which we hope will be fixed soon."

I don't use encryption, but do use "Send Later." I also never removed the button. I tried to customize both the main toolbar and the one in the composition window; neither one had a button under "customize" for encryption. Can anyone help with this?

I use the system theme, and have for a while - but suddenly things are Real Bad

I've taken a screenshot of the main window and a write-window side by side

System Theme:

Light Theme:

As you can hopefully see, the Dark Theme is the only one that doesn't look absolutely terrible - but why is there no contrast color on the light- and system-themes? For the system theme I guess you could blame the system theme but the light theme? What's happening there?

Does "mailnews.localizedRe" still work? If yes, how?

The (preinstalled) default value is "AW,Aw,aw". But when I reply to a message whose subject line begins with "AW:", Thunderbird prepends it with "Re:", so that after a few back and forths we have silly subjects like "Re: AW: Re: AW: Re: AW: .............. ".

Has "mailnews.localizedRe" stopped working? Or how can I get it to work? Thank you!
