How to view/import an .mbox file in Thunderbird

I have an archived .mbox file from my old gmail account that is closed. The .mbox file is 23.6 MB (so I cannot import it into a new free gmail account that only goes up to about 15MB). But I do not need to import it into a new gmail or other email account, and no need to upload it anywhere else.

I ONLY need to access and read the archive on my computer.

I have installed Thunderbird 102.1.1 and I followed the prompts to create an account which seems to link it to my current free gmail account (which I don't need or necessarily want).

Under add-ons, I have added and enabled "ImportExportTools NG" but I don't see how to use this tool to import or access my mbox file.

I am not savvy with this program and do not find any of them menus to be intuitive, so simple instructions and no abbreviations would be very much appreciated.

When I go to the far right menu, and I click Tools>Import, I see no options to import an .mbox file.

At this point, how do I import or view the .mbox file using Thunderbird and the Import/Export?

Thank you very much!

For the last week or two I have had an issue with Firefox closing my email (yahoo business mail) tab automatically, every time I download a file from an email.

After opening emial I click to download the file, i have the settings set to ask where I want it saved, and then either while I'm selecting the destination and labeling it, or right after the tab automatically closes. It happens both ways which suggests to me it's occurring after a specified amount of time, not based on completion of an action. And it's happening every time.

MacBook Pro Firefox 102.0.1

Any idea how to stop this?

I had to re install windows and installed thunderbird again. I waited for 13000 emails to download and made folders for the ones I wanted to keep and stored them there. Then deleted all the emails left. I then discovered that I had only stored shortcuts to the emails I wanted to keep and had now deleted all my emails. Can I retrieve them?

Hi! I'm trying to access a graduate school admission interview due in the next few days. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding Firefox version 69. This is the version I have to use for Kira talents application - https://app.kiratalent.com/n/assessment/7sCGnz

I've reached out to Kira Talents already. But, I don't know if you have version 69 available and the systems requirement needed to download and operate a browser that old. It seems strange to me that a new application called Kira Talents require such an old browser. I mean, this is like 30 version earlier. What is the latest version? 90 0r 100 for Firefox?

Please any suggestion to help my inquiry would be much appreciated.

I'm anticipating to resolve my issue so I can start my video interview for my MBA application which seems to be blocked from me being successful at completing my application.

Thanks! Karolina

This morning Thunderbird 107.0b1 was automatically installed. Ever since, Thunderbird 107.0b1 keeps downloading the same emails from the server over and over. I tried 2 fixes: "delete the popstate.dat file" and "Delete the index files, named *.msf" I also deleted all emails from the server and restarted Thunderbird. Now any new emails I receive keep downloading from the server over and over. I have been using Thunderbird for at least 5 years and never had an issue like this. Note' the server is mail.comcast.net

I have a new desktop running Windows 10. I've had Thunderbird as a mail client for years, but I can't import the old settings from the old computer. Part of it is that I have only the default profile to work from; I no longer have access to the entire older installation.

I've tried two ways: Import from another Thunderbird installation, but it apparently does not recognize that default profile file. I get an error message saying: "Import failed unexpectedly, more information may be available in the Error Console." However, there is no indication of where I can find the Error Console.

So I tried setting up a new account, with the old password and user name, which I can still use to access my inbox online. But I get another error message saying the password is not correct. No matter what I change it to, whether the secure mail key or the latest password, it says the password is incorrect.

Please help!

Hello, I am still using windows 8.1 64bit & refuse windows 10, due to high risk privacy, yes predictable hollow words are said, BUT is Microsoft, a greedy un-scrupled money making, money hungry corporate entity, wants us to willing give it our private details voluntarily or under thin layer of extortion.

Hence my sticking to windows 8.1 as I have certain control, mainly updates.

Will Mozilla browsers be specifically supporting older operating systems like windows 8.1 into the coming years, not just months, e.g. until January 2023

Yes is a blunt question, but is eluded against in other responses, maybe is Microsoft buy out to sacrifice mozilla loyal users or similar, same query is for Brave browser. Mozilla I think is last Bastian for decency & morality, a leader in justice & honour.

Although I can access Talktalk emails on my Android I need to get them on my Desktop PC, as I have been doing on Thunderbird for a long time. The "filing" system is so much better on TBird than on Gmail, but now I cannot get them. Talk talk have sent me a link on how to change Incoming and Outgoing settings but TBird does not seem to offer these possibilities. [http://Email settings | SMTP, IMAP & POP3 | TalkTalk Help & Support . PLEASE can you advise me how to change to the settings Talktalk requires so I can continue using TBird. Many thanks Sue Matoff

There have been so many complaints and one star reviews about version 79, would it really be so hard to reintroduce version 68 back onto the play store under a new name like "Firefox legacy" or "Firefox classic", so we could run that side by side with 79 until the dismal failure that is version 79 has at least been fixed to the extent that people can decide it's worth changing over, i.e., when the things that are most important to them have been fixed? For me that is a customisable home page because I've set up my own site to be my home page on all browsers on all platforms because (so I thought) nobody would be stupid enough to release a browser that doesn't allow that to be customised, and more access to important addons like adblock plus and the home page button, and, of course, a back button.

You could add a big disclaimer that there would be no security or other updates in the description.

When I upgraded from 60 to 68, I had to get all my add-ons back and some had not been updated to the new format. It took a bit of work and asking help on the forums. Will this happen again if I update to 78, i.e. will my add-ons that worked in 68 no longer be functional?

As a related issue, it appears that 78 is still very much a work in progress. For how long will 68 still be maintained an updated? I like it as is and am in no hurry to upgrade.

Thank you.

Hi, I recently had a problem with a pc but before it all went south I managed to save my data including my thunderbird profile. I imported this profile onto a spare pc no problem. The pc with the problem has now been fixed but it did require a new hard drive and a clean Windows install. I have reinstalled Thunderbird and imported my saved profile, the first time I start thunderbird all is fine and everything shows as it should. If I close it and then reopen it I get this:-

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-08-05-56-16-40961f.png

I have tried importing the profile a few times and reinstalled thunderbird tree times but still get the same result.

I'm sure I carried out the exact same proccess when I migrated the profile to the other pc with no problems so I'm not sure what is going on.

GoDaddy has migrated us all to Office365 as their email server. I'm able to receive email on my Thunderbird on Mac Big Sur 11.0, but when I send email, it asks for the password and then rejects it. I tried changing the password in GoDaddy, tried restarting the computer, and GoDaddy's support chat was not helpful. Is this a Thunderbird issue? I see from three years ago that Thunderbird did not support Microsoft's proprietary authentication stuff, but the settings all seem to be available now that match GoDaddy's specs. Thoughts?
