Starting typing first letter you get maybe 5 suggested recepients. Typing more letter only reduce list among these 5. It does not look deeper in address book, it seems. You know you have other recepients that correspond, but not looked for. So have to type entire address from memory.

Thunderbird v91.5.0

Thanks.

Hi, I have trouble with sending emails from my gmail and outlook Office365(school account) accounts. I tried every solution from the support article ("Cannot send messages"). This problem only appears when I'm on my LAN, when I connected to VPN emails are sent. I tried to reinstall TB, remove and add accounts, control the settings for servers, but nothing works. Thanks for advices.

Any idea, what to look at? i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz, 6-core/12-thread, 32GB RAM. So, that should not be a slow machine. Ubuntu 20.04

My Linux Mint 18 (64bit) upgraded my Thunderbird to version 91.5.0. That version is a mess. I am trying to ask a question and Mozilla wants to send replies to my primary email. Unfortunately due to the Thunderbird upgrade I can no longer pop my emails to that address nor send anything.

I have a gmail account that works but how do I change my primary email address since Mozilla keeps sending me a code to an address that Thunderbird won't let me get mail at?

I use one account on several machines, one machine = one user. To sort the answers, we need to know from which machine the e-mail was sent, when the recipient replied.

All I want to do is change my Thunderbird password.

Doing a www search for that topic = every site's information I've found tells one to 1) click on drop-down TOOLS and then OPTIONS (enroute to changing the password), or 2) pull-down MENU and then click on OPTIONS (same story . . . )

Well, there's only one itty-bitty problem: There is NO "OPTIONS" option in at either location.

OK.

So where's the magic? Can only conclude that other people are seeing things I'm not permitted to see . . .

Thank you.

Certain calendar events that have been created as a result of receiving an invitation from another party cannot be dismissed when the even notification goes off.

These particular events are part of a monthly recurring series. They have a notification 30 minutes before and an email 4 hours before.

I can click the Dismiss button for the event in the Reminder pop up but it just keeps coming back. I have to delete the the notification setting for the event on my Google calendar using the Google website. Removing the notification setting for the event using TB does nothing. The notification setting comes back after the calendar is synchronized and TB just keeps notifying for the event.

In addition the event cannot be deleted, moved (dragged and dropped), copied or cut-n-pasted to another day using TB.

FYI, I am not using the Provider for Google Calendar add-on. I just added my calendar directly as a Network Calendar using the CalDav URL provided by Google.

Hey all -

We're running Thunderbird on a terminal server, and I was wondering if there was either a registry value or a key:value entry for the policies.json management option that would allow me to set all instances of Thunderbird, globally, for all users, to download headers only and otherwise use the server (which is on the same network as our terminal server) to pass the message content?

This would be super useful for us as we'd prefer to keep messages stored on our email server, rather than downloading more copies onto our virtual terminal server, and duplicating the use of our limited space.

Is there any way to do this, so that all Thunderbird instances would be forced to operate in "headers only" mode?

Hi, I hope someone can help me because I am about to lose my mind. I have two Gmail /IMAP accounts that I access through Thunderbird 91.5.0 (64-bit) on Windows 7 machine One of them is literally empty with no emails stored in gmail servers. That one is wrorking fine. The other one has around 500 emails on Gmail servers with multiple labels. This one is taking forever to sync with thunderbird: sending and receiving messages is taking forever. I have tried everything: Subscribing, unsubscribing, deleting thunderbird, reinstalling it, deleting profiles...nothing is helping. The problem started 3 days ago. I never had a single problem in the last 10+ years with this very setup. I will need to find a thunderbird alternative unless someone here can somehow help me. thank you very much.

Have somebody that has a gmail account (they took care of all non-gmail content) and they want to reduce their google footprint, and asked me to help.

It's been a long time since I had to do something like this, so I thought I would ask a few questions before just blindly stumbling around. they have about 8Gb of emails, and want to see if we can do the following: - keep the gmail account - copy all the gmail/gtask data to a pc with their PC email client - reduce the foot print in google so that perhaps only the last year or so's worth of emails are in the gmail cloud (maybe about 200Mb) - keep thunderbird synced with the gmail account (they use it with other devices also)

I will install the app and check it out, so hopefully I'll know the answer to some of these questions below anybody responds... just thought if they are quick and easy to answer, this post might help shortcut the effort.

questions: 1) does thunderbird support google tasks, natively or with an add-on? 2) is there a way to migrate data older than a certain date with Thunderbird? 3) is there a way to keep it synced AND ONLY KEEP gmails in the google cloud NEWER than a certain date? 4) are there any issues with a large migration like this, causing message duplicates etc. (I remember this kind of problem 10 or 15 years ago with Comcast and others) 5) any quirks with this kind of POP3/IMAP setup and Thunderbird?

Hard drive failed on Windows 10 computer. Installed a new one and cannot get archived email onto the new platform. However, I was able to get it to work on iPhone and iPad by deleting the account from both devices and used the automated method of adding them back. They worked fine but the settings were changed to AOL SMTP Server with OAuth 2.0 Token Authentication which doesn’t seem to be a setting Thunderbird uses.

I even tried uninstalling TB and reinstalling, but no luck with that either. I copied the Profile to a thumb drive first just in case the reinstall deleted them but they were still there.

Apparently whatever happened affected other mail programs as well. It’s seems to be something with the password. Just haven’t found the right fix yet. I referenced the link below.

I have a Mac and use Thunderbird for email. I am getting an error message as follows: Error - ... on Local Folders There is not enough disk space to download new messages. Try deleting old mail, emptying the Trash folder am comparing your mail folders and then try again.

This occurs only for a select group of folders. The info that was in the folders appears to be gone. I have deleted old mail, cleaned up the trash, etc.

It is odd because the majority of my folders don't appear to be affected. Any suggestions???
