I am getting lots of SPAM email I want to filter, but there is no return address from which to create a filter. Without the return address, the filter Dialog box does not open. When I hover over a link in the body, it reads: ppt.cc/****** (*=wildcard) at the bottom of the screen. I Googled the ppt.cc and found it is a Chinese site. How can I create a filter like: Response Address / Contains / ppt.cc / move to Trash?

I purchased a car recently and a few days later found a clause in the paperwork that released them to sell my email address. I've been creating dozens of filters lately using Contains (domains).

I hate having all my draft email in one big jumbled pile. Email drafts go through stages that need sorting. I would use tags, but Thunderbird tags dont sync to k9 mail, which i use as part of these stages.

A solution I would like is to have subfolders within my "drafts" folder, to better manage the different kinds of email I need to send. However, when I tried this by creating the subfolders and moving the drafts into their respective draft folders and then went to edit the mail (without sending it), instead of saving the draft email in the subfolder it originated from, it saves in the "drafts" master folder.

This is annoying, if there is a draft email in a subfolder that lives under "Drafts", then when I go into that subfolder to edit the email (edit, not send), when I go to save the file it should save in the same subfolder.

But I could deal with that, I thought. I could just use "save as". but using the "save as" feature does not work. I navigate to the local directory where the email is stored (I use maildir), but I cant tell which file to over-write, as the file names are incomprehensible. and even if I just saved a new file, the new draft email does not appear in thunderbird.

If I just had two buckets of draft email I needed to send I could use the "templates" option, but I dont, I have four buckets of draft email that cant really be mixed (or rather, if I did mix them, it would not be any better then just having one big drafts foulder).

Greetings! I am loving the new TB 91.2.1 and have most of it working to perfection. Furthermore I recently installed the Thunderbird-Conversations add-on that works great and makes going through email clutter a lot easier. However I have noted since I installed this add-on (Though, I am no longer sure if this problem started happening only after the installation of this add-on), double-clicking on a message in the list does not open the message in a new window as it used to do. I did some web research and found out about config setting for mail.openMessageBehavior - setting it to 0 does not seem to do anything, setting it to 2 however does open the message in a new tab (so double-click event does get processed as some of the web links were about double-click event itself). I found a couple of other settings - openMessageBehaviorVersion and a boolean setting with the same name - openMessageBehavior? But I do not know what these are for and what these should be set to.

Appreciate any tips/help on this front. - Thank you!!!

If I import the PST file into Thunderbird does it handle the archive file the same as Outlook by keeping it on the local machine?

Hi, I see that there is now (Thunderbird 91) spellchecking in the description field of events. However I could not find to any way to change the used language within the event editor (as it can be done when writing emails). It seems it is always using the default language from the options. That's not very practical when switching languages frequently...

Why does tb 90+ crash all the time in Windows 10 (meaning open TB, 1 minute later crashed) I reverting to 78 cured the issue instantly

I had installed 78 initially - then automated updates occurred and crashing started. Then the latest few upgrades in October resulted in continuous crashing - almost immediately after opening. For days I couldn't write messages. Receiving often ok because the messages came in fast enough. I used my Android phone in duplicate.

I finally went back to 78.x (the last one) and with the very helpful comments about how to use -p opened the profile with my 20 years of emails and 4 accounts successfully but no address book which is a nuisance (I will follow those instructions in due course). No crash in 2 days.

So, what is doing this in the 90+ revisions. I have a i7/much RAM, desktop.

Thanks for any help getting the 91+ revisions to work .

Hello all, Since a new update last night. I am only able to print pages that include the Subject, Date, To/From details at the top of my print page. These are not the "header" settings, those I can toggle on and off in the print page details. I need to print email content that does not include the Subject box at the top.

I recently came across a website listing adjustments to Firefox's about:config settings. These are supposedly done to help make the browser more secure. Modifications to browser.safebrowsing.phishing.enabled,and after, are what I'm most curious about - mostly since the name Google is attached.

Others: - dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled [copy and paste tracking] - network.http.sendRefererHeader [hyperlink tracking]

Website for reference: https://proprivacy.com/privacy-service/guides/firefox-privacy-security-guide

I understand a lot can change within a year, but before breaking something, I wanted to ask if changing any of the above settings, particularly those having to do with Google, will cause damage to the browser itself. -thx

Hello,

I have a strange problem. Background: I have Thunderbird 91.2.1 on Mac OS 10.13.6 I have 11 different accounts configured in my TB.

Couple of days ago I had an issue with one of them. Migrating from 1 server to another one I needed to recover my mails - Old server not accessible anymore. After different tentative I finally managed to recover those mail. The main is I restored my profile from 17 Oct and the mail folder too. Once alright I put back the profile file from today. Not sure if this is coming from the profile file...

Now when I'm sending emails between accounts within TB (different domains like gmail, hotmail, private) I have one outgoing arrow on the mail on the receiver account.

I am adding 3 print screen for 3 accounts for email sent between them.

Thank you for your help
