  1. I have filters configured to move incoming messages to new folders. If I receive a new message and a filter is triggered, then the notice about the new message is not shown. How do I fix this?
  2. I would prefer to display an icon of an envelope, not a Thunderbird symbol with a barely noticeable red dot. How do I fix this?
  3. If I read a message in the main Inbox, then mark it as unread, the Thunerbird symbol will again display in the system tray. This was not the case with version 78. How do I fix this?

Hi,

I recently installed Thunderbird. I tested using my gmail account. The mail didn't go through. I have checked spam as well. Yet when I send an email from Thunderbird to gmail, and then respond, I receive the response in Thunderbird.

Could you please advise on how to receive emails from Gmail accounts?

I am new to Thunderbird.

Thanks in advance. Chris

I am using Thunderbird version 91.1.1 that I just installed on a new MacBook Pro. I have used Thunderbird for some time now, and have a Saved Search folder that I have set up previously. Today when I went to set up the Saved Search folder, the dialog gets locked up in a state where the only thing I can do is quit Thunderbird from the Menu (see attached image for the state it's stuck in). I have isolated it to specifically when I select folders in the dialog ... I was able to create the saved search folder by not changing the search folder selection, but if I go into that dialog when I exit it after making a selection it gets into this locked up state. I assume it is a bug, unless it's waiting on me to do something (which I cannot figure out what that might be?)

Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) secure.emailsrvr.com was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again.

The company I contract with has thrown me a problem and I need some help resolving it. I have searched many internet sites and have seen many apps that claim to do the job of moving mbox to .pst or eml. I've seen procedures to move 1 email at a timr to Gmail and then importing to Outlook (onerous). I have no idea if any of the apps will do the job or not. Some claim to migrate folders and I have lots of those I would like to keep.

Problem - I have to migrate to Microsoft Outlook 2016 (Later on to 365).

I currently use pop mail and store my messages locally. I have close to 1gb of messages stored in the POP Mail folder and I guess some old mail in an imap mail folder. The dates are messed up, because I had a Thunderbird crash and had to reinstall and import via a backed up profile.

What is most important is what is in my current inbox and multiple folders I use on my desktop. I can live without the rest.

So can anyone recommend a way either via a reliable app, or manually to migrate my inbox and local folders to Outlook from Thunderbird?

Thank you.

Hi. I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for years on my PC, getting email there from both Comcast and gmail. My PC suddenly died. I have a new all-in-one PC arriving today. How do I install Thunderbird? In particular, I’m wondering if I will lose my contacts and previously received emails? I am confused and concerned because the old PC is not operational for any kind of “migration.” Thank you.

When new emails are received they are marked as Unread for a while, but after a time, will be marked as Read. This would occur whether I looked at any emails or not. The program is running in the background, but not accessed. I have used Thunderbird in the past with a POP account, but a couple months ago converted to IMAP. This is when the problem started. Under Preferences - Reading & Display, the "Automatically mark messages as read" option is NOT CHECKED. I don't want to abandon Thunderbird. Thank you to anyone who can assist.

We have around 100+ Windows 10 clients on which we initially mass-deployed thunderbird 68.5.0. Deployment was made utilizing the MSI version of the installer, in a Windows Server group policy (GPO).

Everything seems to be working perfect. Thunderbird is set as the default mail handling application.

However, the send-to shortcut not only does not work, but seems to start a process flood of fixmapi processes. Eventually the system crawls and shuts down.

Do note that I'm carrying tests on a couple of rigs, where thunderbird has automatically been updated to 78.14.0 (64-bit).

I've seen that the same issue plagues the normally-installed Thunderbird. Solution that works (most times, not always) is to re-install a newer version. Could possibly be done in our case, not sure.

Any ideas on how to proceed and fix this?

I use filters to sort my mail into folders, these are on the outlook server i.e. not using Thunderbird. Thunderbird only automatically receives mail into the 'inbox' folder. All other folders only update once I click on them. I cannot work out what is wrong.

I was looking for an email I knew was stored in (via) Thunderbird. "Search" listed it giving "foo" in the location column as though this folder was not in Local Folders. This folder is not listed in the left hand column where (I would have thought) all the folders are listed. Using "search" I was able to move the email to a folder that was listed in the main-window left hand column. Is there a way of showing any other folders that are not branches of "Local Folders"?

Hi All,

I'm not getting emails on my laptop since I either clicked the wrong thing when given the choices on security certificates or when I switched to another host. The gent who's doing the new hosting suggests it'd be best to delete Thunderbird and reinstall it, but I'm scared of losing all my address book, email, history etc. but might have to live with it. However, I can still receive emails on my phone.

I'm not a natural on IT, but once I'm shown the correct thing to do I'm not a numbskull either.

Anyone been this way before or has some simple and effective advice, thanks for taking the time to respond.
