I have had to Restore my laptop. Since I have I can not seem to separate my email accounts. I wish them to be kept separate because I use different 'Signatures' for each account. Is there a way to separate the accounts in Thunderbird? If not How do I delete all the email accounts connected to the main email account, without affecting any email accounts outside of Thunderbird so that I can then add them individually?

Hi,

I've been a Thunderbird user since the days of Eudora ;-) and have a configuration question.

When you forward or reply to a message, Thunderbird currently does this: <sender> wrote on <date> <time>:

  forwarded message text

Is there a way to change the preamble line, or is it hard-coded?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.

I'm debugging other problems. I go to troubleshoot mode and come back and my fonts changed.

I head into settings to fix this. Attached the view of my change while debugging to make it really big.

This does nothing. Thunderbird doesn't change the font, the size, nothing.

I'm starting to think I'm losing my mind.

Hi - how I receive my Thunderbird emails have changed. I now have to toggle on the attachment (paper clip) symbol to see emails received and sent that have / don't have attachments. Previously they were all in the same list. I didn't knowingly change any of the settings. I'd like to reset the emails so that all emails are in one continuous list - both with and without attachments.

Very much appreciate it if I could be guided through how to reset this.

Thanks

Steve

Attached image, how is it possible that Thunderbird allows Bit Defender to install a spam add on and then protects it to so I can't remove the add on ?

This is just mind boggling.

Further, there is a "Why" link which should explain any logic to doing this, note there is not, and it explains nothing of the sort.

I have better things to do than run behind thunderbird to delete an extension which thunderbird has allows to "Can't be removed".

Is thunderbird with us ? or against us ?

This is something I've never encountered, since I hardly ever go to the Sent folder except to look at something I sent. But this was a different task.

I've had a series of emails from a friend, that my wife wanted me to forward to her so she could see them. So I went to the Sent folder, and forwarded 3 of those emails to my wife. Then she told me she only got one so I went back to Sent and thought they would be at the top of the list, 1-2-3, but that was not what I found. Since those emails were each part of several different threads in the back and forth with my friend, it took me a long time to figure out which email to pick off and resend. I made sure I was sorting them by date, descending, but was bewildered that the listing had the ones I wanted embedded (see screenshot, with the ones I just sent highlighted in red)

So my question is, is there a setting where I could tell Tbird to sort strictly by send date?

In the image mu mailbox shows the number of unread messages 234, the total number of message 1003 and the storage used 77.9 MB. I set tese options using a little button and then foolishly clicked another little button that hid the option to choose what to display. I am unable to turn that second button on again and so cannot comntrol the display of inbox usage. How do I turn that button back on? Thanks for any help.

There are two "bad email" files in Thunderbird: JUNK and SPAM. I'm still not clear on the difference.

For JUNK mail, TB gives us the option to select "NOT JUNK". Good.

But for SPAM, I cannot find the option "NOT SPAM"

1) Why are there separate SPAM and JUNK directories? And why are they managed differently? This seems terribly non-intuitive and inconsistent and just strange.

2) How can I train SPAM filter to not flag good email from trusted senders? For instance, I get email from my wife many times a day for many years. Today, TB put her email into SPAM. Isn't there a simple command to "white list" a sender's email address?

Hi, Excuse my poor English (I am French). Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon (64), Thunderbird 115.9.0 (64) no added module - Installation from the Mint list of software. My problem : regardless of the provider (Proton, Gmail, Outlook, GMX - in IMAP), the message menu bar (see <https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/personnaliser-la-liste-des -messages#thunderbird:linux:tb115>) does not appear. How to make it reappear ? I think I have tried all the configuration menus and possible right clicks within Thunderbird ; I haven't found anything on the Net ; starting in safe mode did not change anything. I come from Windows 10 where I didn't have this problem. Thanks in advance for your help
