I have created a .vcf file from windows live mail. A number of my contacts have 2 email addresses listed on the .vcf file as; EMAIL;PREF;INTERNET:xxxxx@gmail.com EMAIL;INTERNET:xxxxx@yyy.com

When I import the file into Thunderbird (68.11.0) only the first email address appears. Why doesn't the second email address go into 'Additional email'? I would appreciate any advice/help on how to get both addresses into Thunderbird address book.

Thunderbird 78.1.0 Won't Sync With Comcast E-Mail.

Thunderbird version 78.1.0 won't sync at all. Error message: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, user name, or password." I KNOW my user name and password are correct. I didn't make stupid upper case/lower case or spelling errors with my user name or password and they work just fine with Comcast web based e-mail. First, I used Thunderbird automatic configuration without success. Then I got server settings from Comcast and CAREFULLY did Thunderbird manual configuration several times but got the same error each time. I even contacted Comcast for technical assistance several times, but they were useless idiots, as usual. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird, but that also didn't help. I'm running Windows 10 with the latest updates installed.

Hey

I've copied thunderbird folders from appData/local/localLow/roaming, and then pasted them in the same spot on new pc. Most of my account works except for few. The google ones seems to be fine, but my private not. When I 1st set them up when I send/received 1st email I had certificate pop up to accept which I did and I could use it. But now it does not give that option.

Initially I had

``` Sending of the message failed. Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match server's certificate. The configuration related to xxx.com must be corrected. ``` Now I had no idea how to do it, so I went to settings>certificate manager and I simply deleted the cerfs. But sadly thunderbird did not re-ask me to add them again.

Then I went to appdata found certs files and deleted them there by hand. Still no luck.

I'm out of ideas now, I don't want to delete accounts/create again as its a bit of pain...

Can any1 suggest any workaround? How to force tb to reinitialize account?

Hello I would like to use Thunderbird for emails and get away from google email. I would like to get all my folders and contacts calendar events etc... from my gmail account (I have read how to do this). My question is after exporting this from Gmail can I get rid of my gmail account and keep all the information in Thunderbird ONLY with no tracking or connection from gmail/google?

Thunderbird profile manager trouble with constant updates

I've been using Thunderbird successfully in a multi-user environment for many years, but recently have been running into the same issue over and over.

First some background on our use case. We have 12 team members that use 20 or so different computers at any given time to access email. In order to accomplish this, we use profile manager of course and house all of the profiles on a central server. Each team members profile is configured on each computer and they select from the list. Sorry far, so good. Works great, everyone happy.

Recently I get weekly, sometimes daily, screen captures of the error message "You have launched an older version of Thunderbird....a newer version may have made changes to your profile which is no longer compatible..." This is easily solved by updating Thunderbird on the offending computer, but with users roaming between computers and some computers not being used for a few days it's a constant battle. Profiles and application instances in all states of version control hell.

The only solution I can think of would be to turn off automatic updates and do them manually. This is a clunky solution and I'd rather find a better way.

So, first: Why now? And second: are there really fundamental changes to the profiles on each release?
