Thunderbird suddenly stopped sending Emails. This message appears: "Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail: Outgoing server (SMTP) error. The server responded: csmtp3-prd-nl1-vmo.edge.unified.services csmtp3-prd-nl1-vmo.edge.unified.services Virgin Media has blocked your connecting IP 82.33.148.41 Too many bad emails have been sent. Visit https://netreport.virginmedia.com/netreport Section: Email Sending Errors to request delisting."

I have visited the web site, sent the report, and rung VM, to no avail. Window 10. Thunderbird v115.10.1. SMTP: Blueyonder smtp.blueyonder.co.uk Port 25 Authentication method: Password, transmitted insecurely Connection Security: None AVG anti-virus. I have used Therbird for 20+ years. Can you help?

Concurrent with the most recent automatic windows update (may or may not be the problem), Firefox with duck-duck-go will not go to almost any site. All I get is a spinning icon or a blank page, not even any error messages. This was even true trying to go to this page until I restarted in trouble shooting mode. Until I can get Firefox working again I have been using Chrome with duck-duck-go. Note any search, i.e. 'hotels in Italy' or even 'MSN' do the same: spinning icon or blank page!! Any help would be appreciated. Also I noticed that my bookmarks were missing and there was no bookmarks drop-down on my tools line. I have run malware bytes and it showed clean, same with CCleaner. I have re-installed Firefox; no difference. Please help. and also, any way to find and replace my extensive bookmarks list? I have reduced my privacy to near zero and turned off firewalls and all limits I could find while testing for that. That did not change anything.

Cox.net has discontinued e-mail, transferring all accounts to Yahoo.

If I 'add' my new Yahoo account to TB, can I combine future emails and future sent mail with the existing Cox.net history data in my TB account?

Impossible to stop Thunderbird compacting folders it hasn't seen before?

Hi,

About a month ago I accidentally activated the "Delete all but the most recent 2000 messages" option for one of my mail account in Thunderbird (15.10.1 (64-bit) on a MacBook Air). Luckily our local support were able to restore the affected folders. BUT - every time I opened the restored folders in Thunderbird, all the restored messages would disappear again. Correspondingly, the support team can see at this time large numbers of messages being deleted.

I've tried to delete the affected mail account from Thunderbird - didn't help. I've hidden my profile and started Thunderbird from scratch, set up the mail account again (so there should have been no leftover information from any previous instance of the account) - didn't help. I can see that whenever I open a folder for the first time, Thunderbird says "Compacting" - this is even though I have "Always ask before compacting" set. Even after I turn off automatic compacting for space saving >20MB, Thunderbird still compacts when it first sees a folder.

I have verified this behaviour by connecting to the same mail server using alpine - I see messages flagged for deletion in the restored folder; as soon as Thunderbird touches the folder, they disappear (even though no compacting should be happening and I should be prompted before it does, see above). Conversely, if I remove the "to delete" mark from the messages using alpine and then open a folder in Thunderbird, the messages are visible there.

From my understanding of what Thunderbird should be doing when compacting (or rather when not compacting), I would say the behaviours I've seen are rather significant bugs. But if I've misunderstood and there is some other way to stop Thunderbird from purging messages marked for deletion, I would be grateful for any advice.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Recently all cox.net emails transferred to yahoo mail but kept the cox.net address. I prefer the Thunderbird format for emails, more options. How can I add them to Thunderbird? I already have them in Thunderbird with the cox.net address but no new emails are coming in on the ones that have already transferred to yahoo mail. (They didn't all go at the same time so I am still getting emails on the ones that didn't transfer yet.) Thanks.

A tab recently opened automatically in Thunderbird with the title 'ImportExportTools NG Help'. I would like to save this for future reference but can't find any way to do this. I tried dragging it to an Inbox, and looked for a 'save' option somewhere, but no luck. Finally, I copy/pasted the text into an email and sent it to myself, but lost some of the formating. Is there a way to save the original tab? Thanks

Since the last upgrade of firefox to version 125 we cannot download anything anymore from our internal servers using firefox. At first the download is blocked because of an insecure source (but the server is on our internal LAN). Then when we choose to allow it anyway, the file always is corrupted. That means we cannot save any report results anymore.

I already tried to uninstall firefox and install an earlier version (124) but the result was the same.

Please help to solve this issue asap

Following instructions on how to move Thunderbird from old computer to new computer. I have copied from roaming Thunderbird folder to SanDisk but when it is 99% complete I get message saying "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties?" It gives me the options of Yes, Skip or Cancel. What do I do?

Some background When I installed Thunderbird on my new computer I got all my emails but not any of my calendar data or my Local folders. I am most interested on how I can get the calendar data and local folders on my new computer. Thank you
