Hello! I added two gmail accounts to thunderbird (let's call them gmail A and gmail B), with the aim of copying all emails from one account into the other. However, I discovered I really wanted to copy gmail A over to gmail C instead. I want to remove gmail B from thunderbird, but that is my primary account. I am worried that if I remove an account, it will delete all content in my actual gmail account, which I don't want at all. Does removing an gmail account from thunderbird delete the content in gmail, or just de-link the account, which is all I want?

I need to export a lot of emails from Thunderbird on an old iMac. It seems the import/export tool is not on the version I have so I have a problem. I need to get a plug-in to do this now. However, the version of TB is very old and I'll need a new version of Thunderbird to install the plug-in... So the question is - if I upgrade the old TB I have, will I keep or lose all my old emails? I need a sure answer to this because I can't lose these old messages. I don't want to import them anywhere, I just exported text or html for file storage.

Reading thru this forum I don't have high hopes, it all seems vague and complex (even tho we're now in 2021, no less, and ye olde issues rattle on and on). But a definitive answer would be useful to help me decide what to do. Thanks.

I have followed the instructions located here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer

but still cannot get my new computer to access my email accounts.

Apparently I have missed something with the profile or the proper path for it but I cannot figure out what it is.

Is there another step to take to complete the migration?

How to migrate 'Contacts' and 'Addresses from MS-Outlook 2010 to TB? the Thunderbird so-called 'Import' does NOT work.

Attempting to do so merely produces a 'window' that states

   "Addresses successfully imported from Outlook
    "No address books were found to import

And, surprise, surprise NO data is made available in TB !!! What is WRONG?

I want to import an old address book formatted as abook.mab by 5-10 year old TBs into current TB address book. The only article I can find on file doesn't appear to be addressed to current software, I can't decipher some of it, and what I do understand doesn't work. Any thoughts?

Thunderbird 91 and export-import options of accounts, settings

Hello! New Thunderbird 91 is out for some time - is there a way to export and later import account settings? I mean email settings (POP, IMAP, SMTP servers, credentials, email aliases, GPG-keys, etc).

Even if there could be find files in profile, that keep these information, at least I knew to backup them, e.g. using cloud sync client. Until Thunderbird gets proper settings export, import built-in feature. This means, that it would be good to export also application settings in next of account settings.

Also Thunderbird program settings would be needed to export, later import.

Backing up whole profile is not possible, as database is updated by every sync and then also cloud client starts syncing. Also Thunderbird profile folder is too big for syncing. There is no point to sync emails, as using IMAP and emails are already in server.

I'm having some trouble here doing a migration from Outlook 2019. Whether in the latest version or version 31.8, Thunderbird is not finding my Outlook file. Currently, the file is in a non-standard location. Where does it need to be? Will it need to be on the C: drive (which is rather small)? Or can it be found on the D: drive?

I've looked at other means of importing. I tried exporting from Outlook into a CSV file, but Thunderbird does not see all of the columns that were exported. For instance, the email addresses were not in that second column to be paired. That's rather useless.

Another option that came up in the search of previous answers was to export to vCard. It does not appear that I have that option in Export. And individually saving hundreds of contacts as vCards is not a particularly viable option, either.

What would you suggest?

After Tbird 91 upgrade, get "there is no email program associated..." dialog when starting Tbird

Just downloaded and ran the Thunderbird 91 release (x64 version on Windows 10) to upgrade from version 78.2. Now, every time Thunderbird starts, I get a msg dialog containing the text: "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." Once I OK the dialog, Thunderbird starts and, as far as I can tell, runs normally and sends and receives emails without problem. I was getting no such error msg with Thunderbird 78 when starting it. I re-ran the install a second time, but the problem persists.

I've checked default apps, and default email application is set to Thunderbird, and I can right-click on a file in Explorer and and select Send To / Mail Recipient, and I correctly get a Thunderbird email window opened with the file attached. Any ideas on what Windows is complaining about?
