I have used Thunderbird for 12+ years. Now that we have AT&T as our new ISP, I have learned that AT&T doesn't provide an email address. I had no idea and I am frustrated. I also have Gmail, but I am not happy about trying to merge my large Gmail file with my 17 GB Thunderbird file. I worry about losing emails from years ago saved in Thunderbird and in Eudora before that! I assumed I would get an AT&T email and go on as before. Now what?

I suppose it wouldn't be the end of the world to use Gmail all the time. I hate its filing system which is why I want to keep using Thunderbird. I worry as both files are large. Can I really merge all this stuff and not lose my old emails?

I'm using an old, no longer supported add-on called Reminderfox that saves its contents in ics format. I used to be able to import this to Google calendar and Thunderbird but for some reason they and also Microsoft Outlook won't now import the ics file. They either give an error as in Thunderbird's case (error, no items to import) or just remain greyed out so I can't do anything else as in Google and Microsoft's case. I have submitted the ics file to an ics verifier online and it says there are no errors. I have also looked at the file in notepad and can't see any obvious errors, although I'm not fully conversant with the ics format. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be or anything else I can try please?

In doing some file and folder cleanup I just ran across a folder that I don't recall seeing previously. It is on my local drive and labeled EES-temp. It contains 27 files from the last month and a half and one from 2017. Most but not all of them appear to be items I have filed in other folders. Can someone tell me about this folder? Can I delete it? It looks like it was created by TBird.

Hi,

My reading pane on v115 will only adjust downwards but I would like to adjust it upwards as was possible in previous versions.

Just to confirm what I mean, it will only go down, so making the reading pane smaller (or disapppear) and the thread pane larger.

I would like to make it go the opposite way, upwards to make the thread pane smaller.

Is there some code, css etc that can make it happen correctly?

Thunderbird is completely unusable in the latest release. Attempting to set up a gmail based account results in

"Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to 192.168.1.250. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

That's it. No options, no explanation, no KB articles, nothing. It just doesn't work. But why is Thunderbird trying to open a web connection to my local machine? If it's trying to talk to itself, why can't it? This is clearly an issue with trying to authenticate to Google as it happens after auth, but come on, this is a given requirement these days. If your app doesn't work out of the box (MacOS 13 btw), it may as well not exist for the OS, so this is very confusing.

Trying out older versions was a real comedy of failures as well. Too old and it's just a disaster. Too new and it just self updated to 115 again which doesn't work. So kinda seems like this is not a functional app anymore, at least not on Mac. Baffling. I guess it can only be used with legacy style email systems.

The problem is that after the download of the 115.01 version it has not been possible to register properly my "name"@arcor.de account with the email provider via imap.vodafonemail.de from Thunderbird . With imap.web.de there has been no problem. Strangely, it is possible to send emails via smtp.vodafonemail.de from Thunderbird although these sent emails are not shown neither in Thunderbird nor in the Vodafone email app. Incoming emails are properly shown in the Vodafone email app but not in Thunderbird.

I had to leave Thunderbird because every time I try and create a customized signature, as much as Thunderbird excels in that area, the image storage drops the filename's path every time.

Example:

image loaded: http://rich.allcorn.us/files/headshot.png

when I go back to it: headshot.jpg


It forgets the path, so the file doesn't show up in the eMail. I purposefully put it "on the web" so it could be accessed from anywhere!

When is Thunderbird going to fix this so I can leave Apple's mail program and go back to Thunderbird?

Hello,

an update to Thunderbird 115.0.1 prevents e-mail sending from one account, although incoming items are displayed. A new password option fails. However, Outlook e-mail account runs as usual with expected password and sends as expected.

We have set an IMAP protocol and as this arose, changed authentication method from 0Auth2 to normal password, as yet with no effect. Any pointers to reactivate our e-mail sending shall be appreciated.

With kind regards,

                                Colin.

I receive incoming email on Thunderbird, but cannot send mail. I have used Thunderbird for years, never updated it and this problem just started yesterday (7/25/23). I have gotten an error message saying "login to server smtp.nycap.rr.com failed". I have called my ISP, Spectrum, and ascertained that my email account with them is functioning, so the issue is something with Thunderbird.

I have been getting messages to up date Thunderbird. The first 3 were last week, and appeared to be in Chinese. Today I started to keep the update messages in English. So I went the the thunderbird update release channel and downloaded the latest release. But, I am still getting notifications to update thunderbird. I rechecked the release channel and am using the current version.

So anybody know what is going on?

I have been marking as Junk on some messages for years now. When does TB ever send those directly to the Junk file? Specifically. Can I create filters to send any message I mark junk to the junk file under Local Folders? I've tried and can't seem to get junk messages sent direct to that Local Folder Junk file. Is there some trick to how you create a filter? The way I've been doing it is: Open Message Filters, check "Filters for: and click the email address. Then click New for a filter. Then, in the new filter, type in Filter name:. "JUNK". Leave ck mark in Manually Run, Getting New Mail as "Filter before Junk Classification" (Or should I use Filter after?). Leave ck mark in "Match all of the following. Now, Subject, contains - and that's where the email address goes. Usually I have copied it from the junk message and paste in. And finally, Move Message to: Junk on Local Folders. So why don't this work? And as far as I'm concerned Spam should be the same. Do I need to create filters for both junk and spam? And both before junk classification and after?

Recently something changed in my e-mail which I have used for years in conjunction with G-mail hosted accounts / service (google workspace). I do not know if I clicked the wrong setting or what in either... I just know that I cannot see any emails over 30 days in any folder - regardless. And now many folders show no emails in because of no emails have been sent or received within the past 30 days in them. These store many "deals in the works" and notes from pasty dealings... I really need to access these but do not know how or where to find them... any help you can offer?

I'm 65 and have used this email for about 20 plus years... off and on have had problems that I have been able to get through but cannot get this one solved? Help!!

Hi Mozilla community!

Just upgrading from TB 102.13 (on Manjaro) to 115.0.1 (on Arch Linux), nearly everything works and the GUI experience is much better! Great job :-)

But after importing my PGP-Keys and trying to send mails encrypted, I received an error with no further explanation. On the command line I got some hints and assume, that this might be the origin of the problem:

punycode.js, line 440: ReferenceError: module is not defined

the packages libidn and libidn2, which provide punycode.js, are already installed.

Is there something wrong with my installation or, on the other hand, the bug already known?

Thank you very much & kind regards, Peer
