How to use Gmail alternative emails with Thunderbird?

Description: I have a gmail account "abc@gmail.com" which is already being used by Thunderbird desktop client.

Recently I have added an alternative email to "abc@gmail.com" with my custom domain; "abc@xyz.com" Google Alternate Emails

Both email addresses are using same inbox. I can login from browser via 2 different emails with same password. I can write a new email and Gmail web UI let me choose between these 2 email sender addresses.

Reason: this custom domain has a custom server without a mail server. Instead building a mail server, we choose to use it with online services, which is already working perfectly fine up until this point.

Problem: It fails when I try to add "abc@xyz.com" in Thunderbird. Gmail's IMAP/SMTP settings guide

I get the error "Incoming server already exists", which is true and in this case shouldn't be an error but how it's suppose to be. Right? .

How can I succeed to add an email address to share the same "Incoming server" with already existing email in Thunderbird?

My PC had a sudden and total crash just recently and left me no option but to wipe the drive and do a clean install of everything.

After I had put Windows 11 back on plus other software, I reinstalled Thunderbird as well.

However it will only download emails from the reinstallation date and nothing prior.

Any advice on how to rectify this?

Is there perhaps something in SETTINGS that I need to look at?

  • The attached image shows Firefox (on the right) not displaying Helvetica correctly. It appears jagged and not pleasant to look at. The browser on the left is Edge and all Chromium based web browsers seem to render it as it should.
  • I've tried to look into (about:preferences#general) and the option that says (Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above) is ticked.
  • I've also tried reinstalling the browser, clearing the website cache and also, removing my profile from it. None of these seemed to fix the issue.
  • It's been persistent for quite some time now, however I didn't really find any articles regarding this issue.
  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

How to reset grouped inbox sort settings through config editor

When displaying grouped inbox I changed the View -> Sort By setting to "Grouped" from "Unthreaded" (I'm translating these names from Polish so might not 100% match). After that change Thunderbird freezes when starting it. I can run it in safe mode but as soon as I click on grouped inbox folder it freezes again.

Is there a way to reset View -> Sort By settings for this folder somehow without displaying it? E.g., from config editor?

I tried setting mailnews.default_news_view_flags and mailnews.default_view_flags to 0 but that didn't help.

Good day!

My Mozilla Thunderbird client was receiving messages until 6:35PM last night and then this morning when I try to open up my emails it's saying "Sending of password for user info@butcherboys.ca did not succeed. Mail server mail.butcherboys.ca responded: Authentication failed."

I've read a bunch of the related articles and searched as much as I could! No idea why it would stop working all of a sudden!

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

Hi

My Thunderbird email client updated a couple of days ago to v78.4.0. At the top right of the email body pane where the tabs such as 'Reply' 'Forward' 'Junk' etc are, "More" (actions) has now appeared to the right of the 'Delete' button, which was previously at the far right. This is a real pain as I have been using Thunderbird for so long, clicking the far right button to delete an email is automatic without me even having to look. Now, instead of getting the 'Delete' action, I keep getting this "More actions" drop down. I'm sure this happened once before a long time ago, and I was able to either move or hide the tab to put 'Delete' back where it belongs at the far right. However, this time, I can't find any way to get access to dragging the buttons around. Anybody know if I can still do this, and if so how, as it is irritating the living hell out of me ... ? >:-\

Thanks

Opened up thunderbird today and found it spread across the two screens of my setup. SUSE Linux Tumbleweed latest build on a laptop with second monitor above the laptop screen. Double click does not return the window to a single screen, there is no maximize button, and trying to drag the height fails. It's locked to a height over more than a single screen. Creating a new profile fixes the problem, and I could try dragging 50Gb of historic material and configuration of filters over to the new profile, but there is obviously something in the settings that by deleting it, the current profile will work properly again? Main problem is when I move away from home I don't have the top monitor and can't access emails on the bottom of the screen. All other windows simply revert to the laptop screen ...
