Since Thunderbird 91.10.0 update, I cannot send messages from my Sky Mail account. Instead I get an error message saying unable to connect to this server. If I select another of my mail accounts to send the message, it works fine.

The settings (which I have been using these unaltered for years) are;

Name: smtp.tools.sky.com Port: 465 Security: SSL/TLS Authentication: Normal Password

My User Name and Password are correct. I can log into my Sky Mail account direct and send and receive mails using it OK. I continue to receive mails in Thunderbird as usual without any problem.


Why does my connection to this Outgoing Server fail ?

i get "your connection is not private" error on most web browsers like opera, chrome, edge. Some websites are still accessible but others are not.

In Google Chrome and Opera show as: "Your connection is not private" Attackers might be trying to steal your information from domain.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

In Mozilla Firefox show as: "Your connection is not secure"

      The owner of domain.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

In Microsoft Edge show as: "Your connection isn’t private" Attackers might be trying to steal your information from domain.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

I can log into my Firefox account on my Macbook Air with my email address and password, I can log into Firefox on my iPhone via pair, but I cannot log into Firefox on my Mac Mini using the same email address and password, the Mac Mini keeps saying my password is incorrect.

I'm running Firefox version 100 on both my Macbook Air and my Mac Mini. The sync feature works fine between my MacBook Air and my iPhone. The Firefox account works excellent between my MB Air and iPhone, but I would like to have my bookmarks, history and passwords synced to my Mac Mini as well.

The "only" way I know how to log into my Firefox account on my Mac Mini is using my email address and password. The same email address and password works fine on my MB Air and iPhone. But when I enter my email address and password on my Mac Mini, I get the "Incorrect password" message. I have carefully re-entered my password several times with no success.

I am concerned about "resetting" my password as the dialogue suggests I may lose my bookmarks, logins, and passwords. I really, really, don't want to do that. Besides, they work fine on my MacBook Air and iPhone.

I don't have a resolution to this issue. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, Glenn Cooper

My Thunderbird account passwords in "saved Passwords" are the same as my gmail passwords but Thunderbird startup fails every time with the following message

"Sending of password for user account.name@googlemail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.googlemail.com responded: Username and password not accepted."

I have tried deleting the passwords and re-entering them and I have also tried deleting the entries in the saved password file but nothing seems to help. I have also tried deleting the logins.json, key4.db and cert9.db files.

I have lots of emails and subdirectories and don't want to do anything that might risk those.

HELP please!

I am trying to log on to a website in order to register a guarantee for a product I have purchased. However, when I try to log in to this website, I am booted off by their security system with the following error messages:

Block ID: IPB17 Block reason: Your request was not allowed due to IP blocking (not white listed).

I have been trying to find out how to whitelist this site. However, if I enter the question "how do I whitelist a site?" all I get are lists of people who are trying to resolve whitelisting problems which don't seem even vaguely similar to what I need.

Where can I find instructions on how to whitelist a site?

I have an OLD Yahoo account that I have Thunderbird check along with my other accounts, although there is never really any new mail that comes through it. Anyway, just in the past few days Thunderbird pops up the following window asking for my credentials for imap.mail.yahoo.com.

The odd thing is it seems to go to casalemedia.com

Has anyone else noticed this just recently happening?

Thanks

By using the last version of Firefox (74.0) when visiting a website with security connection I got the following error : "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to .............. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem." With the previous versions of Firefox there was no such problem and I could visit the above website. So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

I need to show the senders email address in the list of columns displayed. I have already unchecked the box in Tools--Options-Display-Advanced [to show only display names]. I have also already been using the Show Address Only plugin which worked for many version of Thunderbird, but it no longer works. [I'm using Windows 10 x64, Thunderbird latest 68.6.0 x32] I sent an email to the developer [in Russia?] today asking if he is going to be updating it to support versions 68.0.* +. However, I really think this should be a feature in EVERY email client. It is an aspect of 'email.' Anyway, I do thank you for such a great plugin regardless and hope my suggestion/request raises a discussion somewhere :). P.s. Just realized this is going to community, not the staff necessarily so just pretend you're hired for a few min. :P

If I missed a way in settings to make this happen currently, my apologies, and please let me know how.

Thanks again!

Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

some time ago thunderbird was operating normally. i since updated the antivirus software to a newer edition of ksos. after that, when loading i got the confirm security exception and my pop3 account was operating normally. after a week or so, i pressed the get icon two three times in order for the exception to appear. now, thunderbird starts and i dont get the notification at all, let alone save it permanently. the only way now to download email, is to exit kaspersky, not even pause protection, for the app, to download email without any notifications. if i restart antivirus, i get the connected to mail.com etc but it gets stuck there. also tried switching ports and no change... ideas?
