Hello,

 When receiving a message, Thunderbird considers a line containing "--" to be a signature start mark and automatically removes all following lines (instead of quoting it) when editing the reply. 

I want to disable this behavior. (The content of my (reply) message is my responsibility, I dislike automation on my authoring. ;-) )

So, how to configure this?

Regards.

AT&T bellsouth.net login problem

I have three email address, all bellsouth.net domains. If I go to the AT&T Yahoo site I can login to all three addresses without a problem. Therefore I know I have a good password and the accounts are not locked.

Last fall I lost access to all three email accounts via Thunderbird. AT&T support told me I had to establish a secure 16 character password and convert to from POP3 to IMAP servers (this proved untrue as POP3 still works). After much effort I converted all three addresses to IMAP and regained access. A few months ago one of the three address suddenly would not login via Thunderbird. AT&T technical support proved no help resolving this problem even after hours of telephone time. I can still reliably log into this account via AT&Ts Yahoo site but not via an email client like Thunderbird or OE Express. On both clients I tried both POP3 and IMAP logins, and although both work for the other two accounts, nothing works for the one problem account. Thunderbird gives the following message when I try to log in "Login to server imap.mail.att.net with username xxxxxx@bellsouth.net failed.". I used both the original password that works with Yahoo and the 16 character secure password, with the same result. I also checked the settings multiple times.

I tried everything I can think of without success. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Accessing gmail account with two-step verification

I routinely use Thunderbird to access my three gmail accounts. Google have recently introduced two-step verification on one of these accounts - after I put in my password it sends a message to my mobile asking me to verify my identity. I am now unable to get in to this account via Thunderbird, presumably because Thunderbird can't handle the extra login step. It says I need an "application-specific password". I have no problems with my other two gmail accounts - though if Google introduce two-step verification on these I'll presumably not be able to get into them via Thudnerbird either. As far as i know I'm using the latest version of Thunderbird - I certainly get auomatic updates.

Can anybody help? John

I use Mozilla Thunderbird for my e-mail manager. I have AOL and Yahoo mail accounts that I manage via Thunderbird. The new security requirements from Yahoo and AOL require me to remove my e-mail accounts from Thunderbird and add them back into Thunderbird. After I add the accounts to Thunderbird, the system then has me login to the Yahoo mail account. I am getting an error message that says my browser (in my case, Firefox) is not allowing cookies. I have changed all of the Privacy and Security settings that should allow cookies (according to Mozilla Help) and am still unsuccessful. I am at a loss on what I am supposed to do to allow cookies.

Hi,

I have been experiencing on and off problems with the outgoing e-mail. It says it failed to log in my account. With all of my accounts.

Nothing changed as far of the settings go, I triple checked them even with my provider. The problem seems to be in Thunderbird. If I use another e-mail program I don't have any problems. Also tried after disabling all of the add-ons but same problem.

Is this a bug?

Love to hear how we can fix this.

Hello, I receive two messages repeatedly, on my Orange address. This is not the case if I use Orange mail, only with thunderbird. For the first, I put a filter that removes it, but it doesn't work with the second. This repetition saturates my messaging and prevents me from receiving other messages.

Bonjour, Je reçois deux messages de façon répétitive, sur mon adresse Orange. Ce n'est pas le cas si j'utilise Orange mail, seulement avec thunderbird. Pour le premier, j'ai mis un filtre qui le supprime, mais ça ne marche pas avec le second. Cette répétition sature ma messagerie et m'empêche de recevoir les autres messages.
