About a month or so ago Thunderbird updated. After that one of my email groups of 54 addresses no longer went on separate Bcc rows but were all included in one row. That was around the time when my ip address became blacklisted by Spamhaus and MXToolbox. Now they want $100 a month in fees to ensure my emails get through because they are all being returned to me as spam now.

I want to go back to placing each of my address book contacts into SEPARATE BCC rows by using a global drag and drop, not an individual posting.

Can anyone show me how to do that as I have been unable to discover how to get back to that old way. Vic

How to stop pop up asking to purge when I send message to JUNK (not trash)

WIth a recent update, thunderbird now puts an annoying pop up almost every time I click on the "junk" icon of a new message to send it to the junk folder. The pop up offers to purge messages from the disk, and gives "proceed" or "cancel" options. It also offers a check box to not ask again and do it automatically.

I know how to compact folders and do it on my own as needed (and through the setting for doing that automaticallywhen too much space is being used).

I've read the other thread in which it was explained that this "purging" does not delete messages from trash, but that does not tell me whether it deletes messages from the Junk folder.

I do not want any messages ever deleted automatically - I sometime need to go back and check junk or trash messages.

1) does the "purge" function delete any messages from any folders (in particular from junk or trash)? 2) how do I stop the annoying pop up asking me to "proceed" or "cancel" purging each time I click the "junk" icon to move a message to the junk folder?

Thank you very much for any help!

BTW, if "purging" through the pop up is not deleting any messages, and is just compacting folders, then the pop up is very poorly worded.

Is gContactSync likely to be modified to work with the latest version of Thunderbird? For the moment I have copied my Google contacts to the Address Book, but would dearly like to have the two synchronised as before!

Or has the developer of this excellent add-on retired or decided he/she does not want to play any more?

Is there a way to get an indication of unread emails on the taskbar icon under Windows 10? On the Mac version, there would be a red dot on the icon if there was an unread email, no matter how many accounts you have. I have the email notification turned on in my tray, but as soon as I open Thunderbird, and click on an unread email, it goes away, even if I have other unread emails.

Not a show stopper, but it makes it easier when you have multiple email accounts.

Many thanx,

Homer

I downloaded some extension (sorry, forgot which) and it changed the way the left pane looks like. Instead of each email separate, each with a sub-category of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, etc., now all the Inboxes are grouped under one category, each "Sent" under another, etc.

So it changed from the first picture (or similar to it since I got that pic off the internet), to the second

Please how do I revert it so that each individual email has its own Inbox, Sent, etc. separate from another email's?

I am a very long-time user of Thunderbird (and have been using it under Win 10 for several years) I do not know when my Thunderbird updated to 78.9.1

Encountering a weird problem today with Thunderbird when I try to create an outgoing email...

If I click the "Address Book" tab, all my saved addressees are intact, so that function is normal. If I click the "Write" icon (or "Reply" button when I am viewing a received email), I get a window (sample image uploaded) that has no email addressees from my address book to choose from, and even if I manually fill in an email addressee, there is no "send" button. Am I missing something obvious here?

If the recommended solution is to download and (re)install Thunderbird, will the (re)install keep all my old settings, emails, local folders, etc?

I am migrating from The Bat! email client (still adore it most, but switching primarily to Linux). I have thousands of emails and are prepping them for conversion.

From screenshots of Thunderbird, it doesn't look that like both clients have the same Message List Columns/Message Fields, so I may lose information in the conversion. I am looking for an official list of all the fields available in Thunderbird so that I may compare and make changes in The Bat! first.

One example, I currently use a Memo field, which is in addition to a Tag field. Will Thunderbird support that?

Any guidance or information is appreciated. Thank you!

But what I really want is something like the following (so that when I read the quoted text I can always see who was included in the email):

I have browsed the threads with this same issue and have tried all that has been suggested but I can not get my images to show when my recipient receives my email.

When I click 'attach this image to the message', the images are sent as an attachment. Unticking this box, which has previously been fine, some recipients can see my images, but many can not. I have tried using images that are sourced on my PC and from my website - no difference. I have tried saving as a template. Didn't work. My email signature is saved as a HTM file and I have ticked 'Attach the signature from a file instead'. I have also tried pasting the HTML code into the 'signature text' area and this made no difference. Compose messages in HTML format is ticked. In send options, I have used both 'send message in both plain text and HTML' and 'send the message in HTML anyway' - neither have worked.

Would really appreciate some help with this as it looks so unprofessional when my recipients keep getting white boxes in place of images.

I am really at a loss. Please help!

Thanks a million,

Gary

I am new to Thunderbird world after being an Outlook user for nearly 25 years. I am liking it - especially the ability to customize the look and feel. That said, it's not for the faint at heart (my dad would not look kindly on the method for many customizations).

So, I have been able to update the userChrome.css file to allow for my own flavor of my mail folders.

One thing I canot get sorted though is what the syntax is for configuring the email account folder entries in the folder pane.

Right now, they all appear bold. Regardless of new mail, unread mail, any mail, etc. Some are blue (not consistent though from what I can see as to why), most are my theme default (white).

How do I change the font/display settings for these entries?

I've managed to sort out my other folder appears settings in userChrome.css, but cannot find anything for the account folder (apologies if I'm not referring to it in it's proper/common name - I'm new to Thunderbird).

In the attached image: - ignore the white box, I have that sorted. - turqouise box: why is this blue? - yellow boxes: why are they yellow?

How do I set the stylings for these items and more specifically, what are they called and what are their syntax names in css?

Thanks, House
