I am trying to import a CSV file of email addresses. I have three columns: First Name, Last Name and Email address. In total I have 361 rows of which Row 1 is the headers just mentioned. When I import the file, it only imports a random selection. I cannot work out why it imports some of the data and not the rest of it. Is there a limit to the amount of data that can be imported into an address book at one go?

The way I use linux is to change distrobutions occasionally but since /home and all other partitiosn are separate from root, the only partition I ever reformat and install is /root.

Recently, I was moving from MX Linux I believe to Linux Mint 19.1, for the first time Thunderbird said that it cant read what is there? If I remember the backup file for my thunderbird is something like. ta830vm8.default

This hasnt happened to me in about 7 years and since that time so much has changed in linux that the languge is garbled on the net, not only for linux, but even for versions of the same distro. Most posts that I see are ancient and I trying to translate what they mean compared to how things work today, it is difficult

The ta830vm8.default file is on my /home partition and has never be altered. It is also in my backup system.

Since Firefox could not recognize what I have, I thought maybe I could go to my backup and see if I can bring back everything. I just need to know how to do it for the present time and how it is done today.

The other sites keep saying in Windows, or Mac. I need a straight explaination for now, and Linux Mint 19.4. Look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Thunderbird Team,

I am using Thunderbird and I am (was) very happy with it!

Since Thunderbird Version 78.9.1 (20210406220621) I am often asked to Update Thunderbird, although Thunderbird is up to date with 78.10.1 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 Home.

Thunderbird asks for Update but did not do automatically, instead I was diverted to the Thunderbird Web-sight and I had to do manually download the latest Version. After manually installing the latest Thunderbird Version I an still am asked every day to do an Update, although my Thunderbird is up to date with 78.10.1. (64-Bit).

I am running a desktop PC with: Edition Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on am ‎18.‎06.‎2020 Systembuild 19042.985 Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0

Thunderbird Settings are: Update automatic installation, and use a background process for installation of updates.

What can I do do to fix this problem? Kind regards

Hi there and thanks for your time. I really need your help: I can't set up my @me.com mail on Thunderbird. I can do it on Outlook but, with the same configuration, the mail doesn't connect to Thunderbird. I follow the Apple instruction about the server set up, I even try all the other options just to be sure! But still I can't solve this issue: the response is always "Unable to connect to the server".

This is the set up I manually configurate on Thunderbird: inbox server: imap.mail.me.com - ssl port 993 - username: my username - password: since I have the 2factor autentication, I generate a specific app password from my Apple ID. outbox server: smtp.mail.me.com port 587 (I tried SSL, but even TLS and STARTTLS) - username and password: as here above.

As I said, to be sure I'm not wrong with something, I tryed the same configuration on Outlook, and over there I can connect easily. But I want and need to use Thunderbird, not Outlook!!

Can you please help me to sort it out somehow? I even ask help to th Apple Support Center, but obviously they told me to ask you, since for them this is a third party application.

Thank you very much for your help. I will really appreciate it.

This is very weird, and Ellen could not remember her sign-in, so she is going to post on my account. Here she is:

I have a very old Mac computer. Don't laugh, it's a G4, and it still worked ok until we changed our outgoing mail server. Remember Robert had some issues with his server change as well? His is working fine. For years, after we changed from Optimum to Verizon Fios, we still used mail.optonline.net as our outgoing server because Verizon Fios doesn't host mail. Our incoming server is a pop box on RCN, which hosts Robert's site.

A couple of weeks ago, the optonline box stopped working for Robert, and we switched him over to an smtp outgoing box on rcn. It works fine.

My optonline worked for another week. Then, when it stopped working, I installed it first on my G4, and then on my iPhone. I was getting incoming mail on the G4 until 11:35 that day, the time I installed it on the iPhone. Now I only get incoming mail on my iPhone.

I know the answer is to buy a new computer, but we can't for a few more months, so we really need to fix the G4. I called RCN and Apple, and they both said that it's a Thunderbird problem. The iPhone says "Delete from server Never" under Advanced. So it shouldn't be interfering. But it is.

Please help.

Hi!

For work I use Tbird for years now, sometimes I have to prepare a lot of mails, eg 30, which I fill during the day and send after hours of work. I then see 30 times the 'new message ' text in my taskbar. It is quite hard to find the right mail when you see 'new me....' x 30. Would it be possible to change that?

I think it is in the language pack , but how to edit that? Is there no add-on to take care of that? I have been combing out the add on section but perhaps I miss sth.

Help is very much appreciated. Thanks a lot for your time,

I screen a lot of junk mail through rules I've manually entered to a Deletable folder. It occurred to me that some especially egregious ones, I can filter them direct to trash. So far so good.

Now, I have TBird configured to leave messages on the POP server for 2 weeks I think it is, or until I delete an email. That way, if I look at email on my phone or other device I get all non-trash mail for the last two weeks, and all mail (including junk) since the last time I fetched mail to my laptop, which is the long term archival location.

Problem is, if I make a rule to filter something straight to trash, TBird doesn't identify that email as deleted when next fetching messages, so the server doesn't delete them, and they're still there clogging up my phone.

Any way around this?
