Hello everyone, Do you know of any way how to use the sensitivity headers (normal, personal, private, confidential) on Thunderbird? The Sensitivity Header is not compatible with the current version of Thunderbird and Thunderbird itself does not seem to have this simple function.

Is there any Thunderbird developer here? I suppose this is not a compliacated implementation (you already have options for receipt and delivery status headers, I suppose adding the sensitivity tag wouldn't be anything hard). Would you please consider this for your next release?

Thanks a lot!

Hello,

So - SMTP suddenly stopped working in our whole company. We are using Gmail accounts configured with Thunderbird for a few years already. It's all been working until an hour ago.

Tried deleting and adding accounts, changing authentification to google app passwords etc.\

SMTP servers do have different descriptions.

Just configured an account in outlook and it works out of the box, so I'm guessing it's got something to do with Thunderbird settings, but we didn't change anything, and especially that we have 8 PCs and it stopped working on every one of it.

The error I get when trying to send a message is:

"Sending message failed. The message failed to send because it failed to connect to the outgoing mail (SMTP) server "smtp.gmail.com". The server may be unreachable or not accepting SMTP connections. Please verify that your outgoing mail server settings are correct and then try again or contact your server administrator."

(translated from polish).

Best regards.

I have a Thunderbird on my laptop with a big folder in the Local Folder. It has a labeled "mail window" having 5,044 messages in a folder named under the internals of the Profile as "Family" and "Family.msf". Under "Family" are at the next level called "Archive-A" and "Archive-A.msf". (This may not be a kosher "archive".) I tried to use NanaZip to prepare as a zip by Exporting it the other laptop's Thunderbird in our house, but the process seemed to hang before that could do it. Maybe there had to be two levels, I dunno. Maybe getting from a .ZIP to a .SBD....

Even if that had resulted in a useful .ZIP, I'm not at all clear how I could I succeed in importing it into the main profile on the other TB computer. I am defeated at this point.

I wish I had a "Thunderbird for Dummies", or at least a manual + a lexicon with acronyms.

Could someone help me out?

Thanks!

So on my macbook when I enable fullscreen the anmation is super weird. first it stretches the video to the top and then just expands to the whole screen, when I go out of fullscreen is stretches to the bottom and then goes out off fullscreen. for example on safari it just expands the video until it takes up the whole screen. I have gone in about:config and disabled the fullscreen animation but that did nothing.

First of all, Thunderbird for whatever reason does not trust Lets Encrypt certificates. Is Thunderbird special?

Next, when it asks to confirm the cert, the confirmation dialog and a message box appear, hidden under the new email window. Is there a good reason why they should not pop up, like all normal new dialogs and message boxes pop up, in millions of other softwares? Does Thunderbird have to be special and hide its dialogs?

And lastly, it takes a deliberate development effort to hide new dialogs. Is there a good reason for you to do that to us, so that we have a hard time Alt-Tabbing into the confirmation dialog? What is it?

To open a link of a website in the background tab is CTRL+click, why is it that to open a bookmark of the bookmark toolbar in the background tab is CTRL+shift+click. It is confusing! A bookmark is a link! For comparison, both of them are CTRL + click in chromium. BTW, there is no explanation in advanced configuration preferences.
