Transfer various email files in a folder in ThunderBird to a bookmark folder on the same computer.

I started a project not to long ago. I received various emails trying to help out. Since I have 2 computers I would like to combine all the emails onto my primary laptop. Once this done, I would like to create a new file in the bookmark section and transfer everything into it. Copy and paste does not work and I do not often use links except when I create V lockups in Excel.

Can what I what to do be done??? Both computers are Windows 10. I really would like some input on this matter.

Thanks in advance,

Bruce

When I mistakenly or otherwise delete and email and want to bring it back to my inbox, I can't seem to do so. I prefer to drag it from the trash folder to Inbox, but when I try, it stays in Trash and my view changes to Inbox, but the email is not there. I try right clicking the email in Trash and then choose Move and Inbox, but this only works occasionally, usually not at all.

How can I copy a back-up email profile for just 1 of my 4 email accounts?

I have 4 email accounts on Thunderbird. I got the insufficient disk space message, and compacted all 4 email accounts. I also used "Repair Folder" on the inbox of the largest (Ranch4) of the 4 email accounts.

I then noticed that 4 folders under the Ranch4 email account no longer display their sub-folders. These happen to be the largest folders, which contain several years of email. I backed up my complete Thunderbird profile (from app data folder) 2 months ago. This includes data from 3 of my 4 accounts (I added 1 account since my last back up 2 months ago).

If I simply copy the last profile copy back to my computer, I will lose all the data from my new account and the recent data from the 2 unaffected accounts. I would prefer to just bring back the data from Ranch 4 (I am okay with losing the data in that account from the last 2 months).

I would be grateful for any assistance on this.

I recently transferred to a new email provider hosted by my ISP. I have found that a lot of information did not transfer from Thunderbird to the new account. All that I can see is basic names and phone numbers in the new account but no information such as addresses or fax numbers. If I reinstall Thunderbird will I be able to get this information back? Cheers and thanks.

Prevent FF from starting TB with profile manager

Using "email link" feature.

Regardless of how I set the email client to be Thunderbird, either in FF or in the OS (Win 7 64bit), TB starts up in the profile manager, and because TB is already running, I am unable to compose a message in the currently-used profile. I have 3 profiles defined, and I do not want to use either of the other 2.

I observe that the OS believes that the command line for running TB (from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Mozilla Thunderbird\Protocols\mailto\shell\open\command ) is

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose "%1"

That is the correct path on my installation.

If I manually run that command from a command window, for example:

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose

or

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose "body='foobar'"

then TB starts up with compose window as expected (including "foobar" in that case).

I cannot, however, without doing some surgery on the registry, determine what argument FF is sending to the OS for the "%1" argument to TB.

If I knew the latter, maybe I could fix this problem.

Or, maybe someone can tell me how to fix the problem at user level?

I recall that years ago I had a similar problem on an XP machine, but I am not sure how I fixed it. I think I may have copied an Outlook version of mapi.dll into the windows system directory. However, it appears that now TB and/or FF have their own version of mapi.dll (with a somewhat different name).

Hi, first off I really like using Thunderbird! Lately an annoying issue has been happening where I'm unable to refresh my inbox and the connection to my outlook account craps out (e-mails disappear and the inbox cannot be accessed). Restarting Thunderbird / my PC seems to help, but the same thing happens again not too long afterwards. Attached is the error message that pops up every time this happens.

Please let me know if anybody can come up with a solution. Thank you very much!

My computer had issues so I restarted it. When I did and opened Firefox, it made me make a new account like it was a first time installation. I no longer have ANY of the information I originally had although it is still stored in the same directory that Firefox is using to store the new information including emails - it created new folders. I tried make a new profile but it still created new folders again. I'm using Firefox 38.2.0 and Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Please see and continue with /questions/1061187 ~J99

Thunderbird freezes irregularly, mainly when I click on my inbox (doesn't matter of which of my accounts). I then can only close Thunderbird and restart it. I do not get an error message or anything, just the main interface freezes and reacts on nothing. My thunderbird profile is not that big (hardly 350 MB). Can anyone suggest a solution? I think it started happening after the last 2-3 updates.

My PC:

Windows 8.1 64-bit Intel Core i3-3120M 2.5GHz 8GB RAM

Thanks in advance :)
