Somehow I have created duplicate FOLDERS in my two T'bird accounts. (See image.) I also have some system folders that aren't in use.

I'd like to clean up the organization by DELETING ANY and ALL folders I don't use, but there is no "delete" choice when I right-drop on the folder.

How is a folder deletion done under these circumstances?

I'm having an issue using TB in that the add-on to delete duplicate files has stopped working. I've highlighted about 1100 conversations that I can plainly see are duplicated, but when I run the add-on it tells me there are no duplicates.

Up til now the add-on worked fine.

I'm also curious why I'm getting dupes in the first place?

thanks

TB Beta Notes page says: "Edit As New Message" will now use the account's default compose format, either HTML or plain text ignoring the format of the message. Plain text messages will be converted to HTML and vice versa. Then using the modifier, the format choice will be reverted.


Please clarify how I leave the message format as is (shift key down, ...) , OR make this NOT the default behavior. I personally find this to be a bad idea as if I want to "forward" a page with HTML, I really don't want TB to modify the the page format.

Pls notify me at

We recently switched from Avast! to TotalAV. This problem started recently but I'm pretty sure it started before we switched to TotalAV. When we click on a button or URL in an email, it no longer automatically opens the site in Firefox. We CAN click on the link, click on copy the link location, then open a tab in Firefox, copy the URL in, but that is SURE a lot of steps. Happy holidays :-) Mike

Hello: this references from dev build (earlybird) 59.0 (.5? I've been away from pc for 3wks so I can't be sure when prob surfaced. Best guess is prob. w/59.0.5 on, but no earlier than early Feb 2018. No probs prior to that date. W10. Bootcamped Mac but never boot to Mac. -in t-bird 59.0.6 (see above), it opens w/o prob. But- when going from/to 1 activity to another (e.g., clicking on menu bar item, clicking on a msg to open it in its own window or just moving down the msg pane to view the the msg), the "hour glass of death" appears. Crash reporter has only appeared x2, & only "much later" (I've left pc for >1/2h & lo! the reporter is on screen when I return). The only fix is to go to task mgr & forcequit. This has occured 10+ times in last 2 days. It has happened in safe mode. I've run my usual reg cleaners- no difference in t-bird, still crashes. This prob has *never* happened in prior builds, & I've been using builds since t-bird appeared. I've read that there are major changes (beginning w/build 59, I think). - So for 1st (or nearly) time I've regressed t-bird to stable v52. No probs, everything's ducky. So there you are. Normally I ask on mozillazine forums, but to me this bug (IMO) needs your direct attention. Thank you.

When I start Thunderbird beta (v. 60.0b6) I get this message: Mail Server Password Required. Enter your password for xxxxx@gmail.com on imap.googlemail.com:

When I enter my new Gmail password I get the attached error message.

The information "Alert from account ... Please log in via web browser" makes no sense. Of course I've done that. I've also changed the Thunderbird's saved gmail password to no effect.

WE ARE NEW TO THUNDERBIRD, BUT NOT NEW TO EMAIL PROGRAMS! To make your email program user friendly, PLEASE incorporate the following improvements: 1.) Sending 'TO' email individuals currently displays the individuals email address rather than the name of the individual. We should be able to select by a name, NOT the address of the individual, which is often completely different than the name! 2.) When sending TO multiple individuals in the same email, PLEASE list ALL names BEFORE the email is sent!! Presently, the same name/address can be selected multiple times and not be known, which would never make happen if the names selected were listed and could be viewed BEFORE sending. PLEASE list all names selected as they are selected; we would never accidentally duplicate the same email to the same person! 3.) What's this with "NICKNAMES"?? The mature thing is to use REAL names as they are identified in our address book. This is true in all areas: List the full name, not the nickname or the individuals address. The email address tells nothing!!!!!

File per message (maildir): missing .eml extension

I am testing Thunderbird 60.0b7 beta version, have not used any previous version.

I would like to store my mail in maildir format so that each message is stored as a file with .eml extension.

Under advanced options "Message store type for new accounts" I have configured: File per message (maildir)

When I view the per-message files, I see that a typical file name is 1528863314782000 without any extension (suffix). I would prefer file name 1528863314782000.eml, because Windows handles .eml files nicely.

The behavior seems inconsistent with the documentation which specifies "using the EML extension": https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/maildir-thunderbird

Is there any configuration setting to control the suffix for these files? Thanks!

Note, someone has previously observed similar behavior using Thunderbird 45 for Linux: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3026130

When I look up what is offered on https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/enigmail/versions/?, I see a long list but nothing for TB newer than Enigmail version 1.9.9 for Thunderbird version 52.0 – 55.0. But I use Thunderbird version 65.6.0!

What is the right version for my TB? If Enigmail development got stuck, what to use instead for GPG-encoded emails?
