continue in your original thread /questions/1379471

Hi: I've used all previous Windows versions together with 4-6 years of using steadily (and ONLY) THUNDERBIRD Online Email Account but I've NEVER experienced this unexpected issue which has happened just a few days ago: during my daily usage of THUNDERBIRD-Email Account, I've noted one day that the INCOMING messages started to get collected in the 'TRASH' folder instead of in the originally-set 'Inbox' ...and unfortunately - have no clue what has caused this problem. I've thoroughly checked the SERVER settings but did NOT find any wrong data: according to the Email-Account setting it states to store ALL incoming mail in the 'INBOX' folder (as is usually and commonly done) ...

I've checked the Properties of the INBOX & TRASH folders and it is stated there that '....the Folder Index (.msf) file becomes damaged and by using the 'Repair Folder' Option may fix these issues' ...however, I'm afraid to use it NOT knowing if it could complicate rather than fix this problem, however - has anyone a 'good experience' with using this 'Repair Folder' Option in the INBOX & TRASH folders ...?

I've posted this message in the THUNDERBIRD Forum about 3 weeks ago but nobody could offer any effective help and advice how to resolve this rather not very complex issue so - I was wondering if there is ANYONE from the MOZILLA Programmer's development group who should be definitely knowledgeable how to eliminate this Software issue (bug) ...?!? Any help from anyone who is familiar with this issue and could help me to resolve it would be greatly appreciated - THANKS! ...Tony H.

Evert time I open an enclosure or a link in an e-mail, Foxfire automatically sends it to a download rather than letting me view it. This is extremely annoying. I understand that this procedure may be necessary for e-mails from folks I don't know, and I could opt out for this option. But I should be able to make that determination and particularly with e-mail from people I know. i used to get a notice that asked me if I wanted to download the item, but that never happens any more. How can I fix this to operate as it used to? Thanks for the help. Bill

How to make HTML the only/default delivery format?

This has been a pet peeve of mine for as long as Thunderbird exists. Every time I add a new user, I make sure to click on "Prefers to receive messages formatted as: HTML".

Alas, Thunderbird cannot take a hint and messages keep on going out in ugly, fixed width font.

I have tried all kinds of tricks: I underscore a period, I increase the font size a little, use bold (see below).

Frankly, in 2020 it is safe to assume that everybody is capable to receive mail in the HTML format.

Of course, it should be possible to use old fashioned format: when I specifically click on "Plain Text" (which I will never do for as long as I live).

TIA,
