Unified Inbox is not, why not? Globalized inbox is like a lunch of alphabet soup, in three bowls when you're allergic to vowels, why is this?

W 10, Gmail IMAP and a 365 IMAP. Unified inbox puts to inboxes under each other with the Local folder inbox below that, it's empty nothing was unified, this is useless.

Creating a Global inbox works for inbox only under Local Folders at the bottom but it is mixed in with the other local folders some of which cannot be globalized, one of which is called Inbox, there are two inboxes and the only one you can delete is the one you want, err just created as a matter of fact.

They can't even be moved to reorganize for a more prominent position. In that you cannot globalize all the folders you want down there, you cannot collapse the folders in the above two accounts without losing access to the folders that cannot be globalized. The frustration and time consumed on one this is worse than useless, what gives? The left side bar has been a mess for years, fix it. If you want a donation finish the product, do the work man, plain and simple.

When writing an email, I was able to select "Customize From Address" in From dropdown list. A warning box would open with a warning that not all servers allow custom from addresses. In that warning box, there was a check box that said 'don't show this message again.' I checked the box, but now when I choose "Customize From Address" the selection is still in the list, but can't be selected.

How do I reset the setting to again show the warning message and re-enable custom from address?

It seems that Thunderbird converts all incoming messages with .ics attachments to meeting invites. As a result, any other content in the incoming email (or email chain) is hidden and I cannot see it. How do I prevent Thunderbird from hiding email content when an incoming email has an .ics attachment? Thanks!

Hello, I managed to increase the font size shown in the Inbox and menus using your online support, thank you. Unfortunately, increasing the font size using "pixels" in the config editor, it also increases the spacing between the messages in the Inbox. This is unfortunate because I now see less messages unnecessarily. Is there a way to increase the font without increasing the spacing? Many thanks in advance.

Hi, since updating to version 78 forwarding a message from a newsgroup is changed. It is now set standard forward it as a new newsgroup message... it was forwarding by mail. Is there a possibility to change it back? I only use it for forwarding messages by e-mail, so this change is really anoying and useless in my opinion.

Hello. I am currently using Thunderbird 78.5.1 (64-bit). My "Body" filters no longer work. I had been using them for years without a problem to filter-out mail with spammy body content. I have scoured the Internet for a solution, but none has worked for me.

PS: I have unsuccessfully tried both the built-in "Body" filter and a customized filter that I named "Body."

Thanks in advance for your help!

Using Thunderbird 84.0b2 the WeTransfer filelink provider in Options/Composition has a triangle exclamation icon with the tooltip "This account has not been configured yet", but there is nowhere that I can find to configure my WeTransfer account for the provider. All that appears on the right are links to WeTransfer privacy policy and to a wepresent story.

In the attachments for my email, there is no "convert to WeTransfer" option.

I have an account on WeTranfer but I need to know how to configure the WeTransfer filelink provider to connect it to my account on WeTransfer.

Is this just an issue for the Thunderbird beta channel? I get that beta software doesn't always work the way releases do.

With V78 & win 8.1 it seems that the font size I set up in an email gets changed when I send the email, and when I look at the sent messsage - normally larger.

I have options/general/language&appearance/advanced set to century gothic &14

but under fonts & encodings/proportional the only options are Serif and Sans Serif - all other settings have a drop down box allowing access to all the font selections.

Is there any option I am overlooking to have the fonts of the sent (and recieved) email the same as the one i see when i compose the email?

Hi There, I've started to use Thunderbird in Dark Mode and really like it. However, people receiving my emails have started to complain that the messages they were receiving from me were with a dark background and white letters, which they found disturbing (nobody's perfect...). Still, due to the reactions and because emails are about communicating with others, I have had to move back to Light Mode, as it seems that the Dark Mode features are embedded in the emails sent with Thunderbird.

To please everyone the solution would be

  • to have the emails I receive and I prepare both in Dark Mode,
  • to have the emails they receive and I send in Light Mode, as not everyone seems ready (yet) to adopt Dark Mode.

It is possible to de-entangle the emails I send from the Dark Mode I use to write them ?

I could not find a way to select such settings and were wondering if they exist at all.

Thanks for your feedback PAscal

PS. Forced to go back to Light Mode, the email address and webpage links now appear in yellow in both the emails I send and I receive. Yellow with a white background is a bit tricky so that if someone can point at a way to address this, it would at least allow me to go back to a full Light Mode rather than this inconvenient hybrid mode... :)

Hi Guys. I've been using Daily now for a few years, like about 6 or 7 and its great, except for the never ending consistently interfering updates! Please add an option to not check and ask for updates. I shall do them when I have the time and need. I do PLC and electronics development privately and the never ending popups for updates, activates and confuses issues that causes havoc in my programming and programs. This means that I have to shut down Daily and then my mail box gets congested because I forget to restart Daily. Thank you so much. Regards Chris.

In the new 78.5 release, in the Message Pane, the ability to collapse the email address to/from/subject line is GONE! Is there anyway to collapse this very unnecessary information???? When you click on the message in the message list it shows who it is from already and the subject. And I DON'T need to know who it is too because it is to ME.

There used to be a small (+) and (-) sign on the far left of the email addresses. PLEASE PUT THIS BACK!

Being able to collapse this area gives you that much more space in the message pane to actually read the message!

Thanks.

Just upgraded to version 78.5.0 of Thunderbird, and the spell check window is now ALWAYS at the upper left hand corner of my desktop (Win 7) screen. I can move it, but it drives me nuts to have to do it EVERY TIME. I want it the way it was before the upgrade -- right on top of the email being spellchecked, by default.

How do I do this?

Is there a way to have a new email set the From identity based on the recipient? I have a lot of accounts, and normally each contact is reached through a particular account.

When I come into Thunderbird via a mailto: link or an external automation, it'd be useful to have the from address preset to the account that I normally contact that person through.

Is there a mechanism to set something like that up?
