I have limited data wifi. I have unusually large data use and can't pinpoint the cause. I note that I keep seeing on the bottom line of firefox something like: "loading 500 of 5678 emails." However, I don't, of course have that many emails saved. Could this be a cause of excess the data useage?

Hi, I have 4 email accounts that i have had over 5 years and have a combined 20,000 plus emails.

I do not want to download all the emails when creating a new email account, and i do not want to delete them off the server as i would like to keep a record of them all if i need something in the future.

Please let me know the best way to deal with this. Ideally I would like to download just the emails for this year when creating my new email account in Thunderbird

For some reason I'm unable to ask a question or make a comment in the thunderbird support section. I'm logged in and have gone through all the subcategories, but it doesn't bring up any option to post.

As can be seen by this post, I don't have this problem posting to the firefox support forum.

This may sound stupid but I am unable to reverse my accidental "ignore thread" on a number of my emails. It doesn't allow me to undo it and now all my emails from clients have disappeared and I'm incapable of finding them. All I want is for every email that comes in, to be at the top of the list, is there another way of reversing the process?

Thunderbird has worked perfectly for a long time, but yesterday, the outgoing server suddenly changed from BTInternet to Yahoo, and I am unable to send any more. I didn't touch the settings, and I have carried out a full system and malware scan. Despite changing the settings back, I still receive error messages, and Thunderbird will not send e-mails. Screen shots attached.

I clicked "Show remote content in this message" and would like to reverse that decision for a particular message. I found the way to reverse when images in all messages from an address are allowed, but when allowed in only an individual message.

I create new files but they do not appear in the file listings. I have tried each suggestion on this board but to no avail. If I again try to create a new file with the name last used, the software informs me that a file with that name already exists. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.
