Email Archiving to Local Folder

Hi everyone, maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I doubt I am the only one with this goal / question! I am trying to archive emails from an online provider to my local PC. I want to delete the emails from the online server and only keep a copy on my local archive. I have read the help here but did not find enough explanation regarding Archiving to know whether it is what I am looking for, or intended for a different purpose. Likewise with "Local Folders".

So I have potentially abused them both with the following configuration: 1) renaming my "Local Folders" account to "Archive", 2) setting my custom local folder under "Local Folders" (now "Archive") > "Local Directory", 3) creating subfolders for each email account, 4) specifying these folders under each "Account Settings" > "Copies & Folders" > "Message Archives" > "Other" > "<Folder Name> on Archive" (selecting the subfolder) 5) leaving Thunderbird on all night to synchronise

Unfortunately, the next day in my Archive folder were only tiny ".msf" files, so it clearly didn't do what I expected. So please tell me where I went wrong, and how I should rather setup my local archive. My aim is to delete online copies and move most mails offline.

Thanks a million in advance! Bruce

Hello,

Ultimately, I want to change the font for unread email in my in-basket, same as [thread]. Nothing I do in userChrome.css seems to have any effect. I'm running Windows 10. %AppData% = "C:\Users\Ron.000\AppData\Roaming".

Accordingly, I've placed userChrome.css here: C:\Users\Ron.000\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\xdl9kae3.default\chrome


I have toggled toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true

Current content of the file is below. Thunderbird v68.11.0: /*

* Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
*/

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

/* Threads Pane font */ .tree-rows {

   font-size: 48pt !important;
   font-family: Verdana !important;
   color: #000062 !important;

This new version, 91.0, now opens PDF files in a new Thunderbird tab. In previous versions, I could open PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC.

I want to still use Acrobat Reader DC to open PDF files. I can't find anything in preferences to direct PDF files to Acrobat Reader DC. When I right-click "open" on a PDF file, it does not give me the option to choose a program to open it with. It opens directly into a new Thunderbird tab.

Is there a relatively straight forward way to make the width of the scroll bars wider in firefox and thunderbird?

Their default size can prove challenging to see and operate for older users and I would like to be able to modify the width if possible.

I have found some info on the web, but nothing I have tried seems to work. Would be good to understand the best way to achieve this for my father's system:

OS Ubuntu: 20.04.2 LTS Thunderbird:78.8.1 Firefox: 88.01

I've read a lot of help on this - almost all of them say, "As you have discovered there are three visible TO/Cc/Bcc fields..." and: " type or select email address and press enter to move to next TO field".

None of that works. I have only ONE visible "To" field. It has no controls to change it to a Cc or Bcc one. There is a "CC" or "BCC" option beside the "From" field. Pressing Enter at the end of an address does precisely nothing.

Another copy of TB on another computer has all the features you gaily point to - but mine doesn't. Where do I find it?

I installed the "Mail Merge" extension, created a .csv file with multiple emails. However, even though I specified {{Email}} under the recipients. The "Mail Merge" extension won't let me send the message and displays the following message, "No recipients were specified. Enter a recipient or newsgroup in the address field."

This did not happen in the previous version of Mozilla Thunderbird.

Can you give me a solution?

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.

Hi, I'm using Thunderbird 68.8.0 (32-bit) on Windows 10. My work account is based off gmail. I tried switching to the dark theme- but it seems the emails themselves still appear in a white background with the dark text. Tested for plain text mails, calendar invites as well.

Does anyone know of a workaround to get a true dark mode on actual emails as well? Thanks !

Hi all -

Just upgraded to TB 78 on Windows 10 x64, Build 2004. Noticed two major things:

Issue 1 -

All of the mail folder icons are no longer yellow. Just a stark white with a black edge. I attached an Image of the issue for review.

Issue 2 -

My Message Composition Pane is dark with white letters and most incoming text mail is the same.

I do have some dark colors set up under PC Settings -> Personalization but everything was working perfectly prior to this new release.

I attached Images of the issue for review. Note the "dark haze" over the HTML email.

No add-ons are enabled!

Any help appreciated! Kind of urgent to me.

TIA :)
