It looks like hundreds of people have the same problems I do and no "undo" button for this new 78 that DISABLES my current email addresses! I am so upset over this DAMAGING MY BUSINESS! if they CARED they would have an undo button rather than forcing this. I so wish I had never "upgraded".

I am not super techie but they SHOULD allow you to go back if it doesn't work for you!

It was working fine!

All I need to know is, how to automatically sort emails into their various subfolders. When I was using Outlook, it had a 'create rule' feature whereby you could get it to automatically put emails from certain addresses straight into the right subfolder. The title of the subfolder would be in bold and next to it a number of how many unread emails were there. I cannot seem to find anything in help that addresses this - there are far too many articles to process with "protocals", "add-ons", "IMAP"...it's all beyond me. Frankly this is just another reason I am getting increasingly frustrated with Thunderbird. If anyone can enlighten me I'd be most grateful.

How can I compact my mail without purging any messages?

Prior to a recent update I'd get a message to compact, I'd compact and all was well and none of my messages were purged/deleted.

After the update (I'm on version 75.5.0), I get "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 84.7 MB of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you."

I've read the few other threads on this and it's still not clear to me. Can I compact without deleting anything?

Thanks.

I'm starting the planning of the upgrade process of Thunderbird v52.9.1 to the current latest version. With the limited time I have I expect this will take a couple of months and I'll come across a number of issues.

There will be a multitude of features I want to disable, and probably several cosmetic changes.

The first of which is getting rid of the square tabs. The css used for Firefox doesn't seem to work for Thunderbird. How to I apply the same strategy to Thunderbird. This could be a real quick upgrade path - if I can't get back the curved tabs in the latest version what is the last version in which I can get back the curvy tabs? If 52.9.1 is the last version on which that is possible I won't be upgrading at all.

css for Firefox: https://github.com/wilfredwee/photon-australis

There have been 52 releases since 52.9.1. I found the release notes at https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/releases/

Rather than download 52 individual release notes is there perhaps an aggregated version I can download anywhere?

Can I make the jump straight from 52.9.1 to the latest version, or do I have to do the transition in multiple upgrades?

I use Firefox as my main browser. In the past when I clicked on links in Thunderbird's RSS reader it opened those links in Firefox.

Recently I also installed Chromium. I did not set Chromium as the default system browser. But now, whenever I click on a link in Thunderbird's feed reader it opens up Chromium*.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm using Arch GNU/Linux.

  • - Yes I have got it the right way around! I could understand it if Thunderbird always opens Firefox despite settings. But that's not what's happening, Thunderbird is always opening Chromium.

It appears that google gmail does not allow thunderbird anymore. I could choose the "less secure apps" option but I do not want other apps that might want to join the party. I saw no option on google to allow just TB and disallow other "less secure apps" . It started when Google alerted me that one of my passwords was compromised. I don't know and probably won't ever know if it was Thunderbird that was compromised, or if something else. I had to delete all the passwords on google and start from scratch. When I deleted my google application passwords, and changed my google password. When I tried to log back in with thunderbird, google would not accept the request from Thunderbird. All thunderbird did was show me a log in page where I could enter my password (which i did correctly thank you very much) but it did not say "rejected by google" or that it was incorrect. It just cleared the entry line and asked again. It took me a lot of time to figure out that google was the problem and not thunderbird. But now I see it is a failing of thunderbird not keeping up with security measures.

My suggestion is that when this happens, thunderbird should alert the user that the log in is not succeeding because google is rejecting it instead of letting the user think that they did something wrong. I say this because it is just frustrating to try to log in and not know why it isn't working.

email is such an important service that I would rather do without all the nice features of thunderbird than have to go through this security breach issue ever again.

thanks to all the people that work on thunderbird, and I hope you can fix it. If it ever gets fixed, I would like to use it again, but for now, it just doesn't make any sense.

Immediately after updating TB to Version 78.4 my email accounts with Earthlink and Comcast ISP's stopped functioning (incoming and outgoing). I have used TB for over 5 years and been running IMAP on all my email accounts with previous versions of TB without any issues. After trying fixes found on support forums (i.e. changing config setting security.tls.version.min from 3 to 1) I was able to get my Comcast accounts working but not my Earthlink account (which is my primary account). After 1 1/2 hours with Earthlink Tech support, I was told I needed to reinstall TB with the previous version that worked. For me this is unacceptable. Why use a specific Email client if new versions do'nt work with my ISP's or I need to tweak config files. This should all be transparent to the user. Can anyone help me with fixing my problem. Thanks.

I called Goddady and they had me remove the account from Thunderbird and recreate the account and still did not work. Still times out. All my Gmail accounts work perfectly on Thunderbird. Godaddy tech are stumped and said it was a Thunderbird issue. What do I do now?

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.
