I have a new computer that I have installed thunderbird on and have been using for a couple of weeks. I already migrated by address book over, but now need to just migrate my folders from my old computer. How do I only migrate folders and not my whole profile? I don't want to loose what I have on my new computer. I should mention I currently only have the folders in Thunderbird that are set up when you install the program. I have not made any new folders.

I have switched to work remotely and have transferred all my Thunderbird settings from my PC to my laptop.

I got to my new remote work place and can't receive any emails using my accounts set up in Thunderbird.

It is the same whether I use Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo.

I have tried many things but basically have taken all defaults for setting up email accounts. I am using Windows 11 Home and I am not going through a VPN. My Thunderbird version is 115.3.3 (64-bit)

For example for Gmail I get:

Non-overridable TLS error occurred. Handshake error or probably the TLS version or certificate used by server imap.gmail.com is incompatible.

Am I doing something wrong?

I recently created a new profile for thunderbird. I have had multiple problems with this new version 115.3.1 (32-bit). Very frustrated.

I am using a gmail account and thunderbird as client. When I recreated IMAP account to new profile, it makes EVERY correspondent the same person. I use the account for forum emails from an organization where like professionals share information and it is private. The new profile takes the name of one member and puts that in all prior emails, rather then having the correct sender name. I had no problem with my prior profile and cant figure out why Thunderbird is doing this?? I a different email account it did the same thing with a different organization and it put same correspondent name on most, but not all group emails.

I am guessing its how thunderbird is reading the message source code. Shouldn't it be taking it from the "FROM" tag in it.

I appreciate any suggestions or comments. I still have my old profile and can use that with no problem. Also gmail online email stuff is fine, so it has to be Thunderbird that is deciding to input one correspondent's name for forum email. I don't understand why or how to fix.

Thank you

Matthew

Thunderbird 115 forcefully migrated my older profile and did NOT leave a way to go back?

That is NOT the way to do this.

You need create a NEW profile for the NEW version and LEAVE THE OLD PROFILE ALONE!

You must also have an alert, and explain the process, transparently giving the owner of decades of e-mail the opportunity to safely upgrade AND have the opportunity migrate back if they so desire.

How DARE Mozilla treat users and their data so casually.

This is NOT the way to do this.

Currently FURIOUS that this trusted tool has left me NO way to downgrade back to 112 except to rebuild my profile (and all the various e-mail accounts) from fucking scratch.

''''''''RE: Thunderbird version 115 is only offered as direct download from thunderbird.net and not as an upgrade from Thunderbird version 102 or earlier. A future release will provide updates from earlier versions.''''''''

But my Thunderbird 102 automatically updated to 115. In doing so it deleted all my Sent folders and Sent emails. Profiles backed up under 102 are incompatible with the 115 profile!!! Eventually, I was able to click and drag most of the deleted emails from a backup of 102 to 115.

If 115 is not a direct update why did it automatically update with attendant issues?

I posted the following question 1 month ago. Can anyone help me with this, it's driving me crazy! Please respond.


- Open TB - Open Inbox to see all emails - Open an email, read it, delete it - Scroll down, reading email Subjects until I find another email I want to open (this may be 30-40 lines or more) - Open another email, read it, delete it

The cursor/highlight then jumps back up to the previously highlighted email (next to the first email I deleted). Now I don't know where I am, I don't know what email Subjects I have already looked at, I don't know where the next unlooked-at email is. In order to get back to where I was before I deleted the second email, I have to scroll down through many emails I have already scrolled through.

How do I stop TB from doing this? I want the cursor/highlight to stay right where it was before I delete any email, I do not want it jumping to some previous location.

Hi!

I plan to change my laptop in a few days. I use Thunderbird since more than 10 years and there are multiple mailaddresses within one profile. Probably 3-4 years ago i have archived a lot of mails and a few months ago i have noticed that the subfolders with the archived mails are simply lost. I don't know why this happened. However, i still have a backup from 3-4 years ago and i am pretty sure, that these subfolders still exist in that old backup.

Question: Is it possible now to install Thunderbird on my new computer and import two backup(different dates) of the same profile? If yes, what will happen with all emails, which are contained in both backups - will Thunderbird create a duplicate of all of these mails?

Many TIA!

Problems Configuring Folders with Global Inbox

I'm giving Thunderbird a try because I'm unhappy with spam filters and rules not working in Outlook. I am tired of checking all my spam every day, to be sure that a wanted email is placed there. I want my T-BIrd to receive all spam, and use T-BIrd's rules to then firmly isolate, or even delete, specific spam that I receive.

I've set up four email accounts, using a Global Inbox, so everything is together. While I had been using IMAP with Outlook, I understand I need to use Pop3 for this to work with Thunderbird, so I did that. But....

I am getting some emails with Thunderbird, but not all, even those addressed to me. Will leaving Outlook open during this transition period prevent T-Bird from working properly? Likewise, can gmail.com be open when trying to debug messages? I just sent myself a gmail message, which was received in Outlook, but not in T-Bird (and I couldn't find it in Gmail either, which is /really/ confusing).

Oh, shoot, I tried sending mail using my Gmail account from Thunderbird, and it failed. I went to look up Server settings for Gmail with T-Bird, and the article said I'd have to use IMAP, which I cannot use if I want to have the Global Inbox. So, is use of T-Bird dead for me, if I require/desire a Global inbox?

Of the emails I've received so far, only one is marked by T-Bird as Junk, which I can identify by the red color, and when I click on it, I have a "Not Junk" button. But there is no Junk folder, which is where I thought it would be.

I created a Google Takeout file for my emails in my old gmail account which I am trying to import into my new gmail account, however the system does not allow me to split the files into smaller sections say 2-4GB which is what Thunderbird supports. I tried to submit for a 2-4GB split for the Google Takeout files and no luck...it always comes out in 2 files, one is a few MBs and the second file is over 40GB.

As I am trying to use ImportExport NG tool in the Local folders Mbox import, I get an error of Mbox All mail Including Spam and Trash-002.mbox larger than 4GB, skipping.

I've tried to find some online MBOX splitting tools, however no success as the file is too big and causing issues.

Any help with be much appreciated.
