Under Account Settings, I went to synchronization&storage, clicked Advanced to be sure the files would be available offline. I exited Thunderbird & used File Explorer to go to my root directory to Profiles. There were 2 files, one with the ext of .default-esr which was a large file. The other with ext of .default which was a very small file. I copied both of these to an external drive. Under Account Settings I went to Copies & Folders & under Message Archives, I didn't know what to choose. I need to know how to copy to the Local Folders of the profile for each email account which is 2, Gmail & Hotmail or Outlook. Thanks.

I want thunderbird to block TOP LEVEL domains. This does not mean (example@example.com) or (example.com) This means .com

I have a huge list of Top Level domains I need to completely and totally block ALL emails from. I cannot block domains. That is a useless effort for 4 reasons:

1.) The Top Level Domain called .space (among other in my list) use spam email addresses such a example.space This gives them an INFINITE number of email addresses to use. There is NO way to block them other that at the TOP LEVEL.

2.) Blocking just the Domain (example@example.de) is also useless... read reason #1

3.) ICAAN has made it much easer for spammers to create unique top level domains. .... read reason #1

4.) My email provider does not and will not provide me options to block any Top Level Domain I choose. Its beneath them to provide such an essential tool.

So, How can I set up Thunderbird so that it will totally block and Never download from my mail server ANY top level domain that I choose???

I dont want to know about using other email programs. Just provide me a method, tool, app, add-on, shareware, or whatever that will let me use thunderbird to block TLDR's

Dear support, I got an e-mail from Microsoft, that they're not gonna allow regular password authentification coming September and I've had trouble connecting one of my two hotmail.com-accounts for months now (the apparently common problem where it claims that the password is incorrect - which it isn't). I thought, it's a perfect opportunity to fix both these issued by getting the OAuth2 thing to work. I'm on Windows 11 using TB 115.12.2 I can't get it to work : ( I did all the steps in this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/microsoft-oauth-authentication-and-thunderbird-202 except that I couldn't select OAuth2 for my former smpt outgoing server (sorry if I'm using these words wrong, I really have no expertise in this area) "smtp-mail.outlook.com" - it's not in the dropdown menu. I tried forcing it in over the confid editor (which worked, I mean, I could open the pop-up again and it would have the OAuth2 selected), but no mails. I tried to instead just put in that office365 server that is given in all the examples (since I don't know how anything works, I thought I'd give it a try). There I could regularly select the OAuth2, but it still didn't work. I should get some pop-up or browser-thing or something to do this fun verification thing but I don't and I really don't know what to do.. I tried resetting everthing back to it's former state but now my main hotmail-account also has the wrong-password-problem... : (( Do you have any good ideas? Thank you in advance and have a good day Charlie

I am running Thunderbird on OS Ventura 13.6.7 on a Macbook Pro. I have used Thunderbird for years to access my Yahoo email account, but today (again after having problems a year or two ago) I keep getting a window popup asking me to login. However it does not ask for a password and when I click on next it gives me an error saying I have to enable cookies on my browser (they are enabled). I can login online but I would much rather continue to use Thunderbird as I have a number of other email accounts as well. I read about others here with similar problems but don't know of any anti-virus in my Mac. Here is a screenshot of the error message.

Hi, Where are imap message filters stored under Thunderbird Nebula? On an exact transfer from Win10 Supernova to Win 11 Nebula, on separate laptops, my new imap message filter list is completely blank. Only my Local Folder filters appear - which do not work on live emails.

I can create new imap filters but I cannot find them in any msgFilterRules.dat file on the new Win11 system.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, Is it safe to delete this trash file? C:\Users\(user)\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\8man8wy0.default\Mail\pop.secureserver-1.net\trash//

It is simply named 'trash' and has no file type (file type just says 'file'), and is for a mail server I don't use anymore (pop.sercureserver). It also says it hasn't been modified in four years.

The reason I want to delete it is because Kaspersky antivirus detected four dangerous objects there that it can't resolve or delete and won't let me quarantine. Strangely, they're all from 2016.

I already tried manually looking for the emails in Thunderbird, permanently deleted trash emails, and compacted folders, but even after that and restarting the computer several times Kaspersky still finds them. Unfortunately, because of the ban on Kaspersky in the USA, I can't post to their message boards to ask for help.

So, is it safe to delete the file 'trash?' And would I need to delete Trash.msf and/or the folder Trash.sbd also?

Any assistance would be much appreciated, thank you.

Kia Ora Koutou from Aotearoa New Zealand.

After several hours of sheer frustration, including reading a significant number of posts I am still without result.

Thunderbird keeps asking for my my password for both my SMTP and IMAP settings despite all of these being correct.

I have checked with my domain and email provider (mail.1stdomains.co.nz) and they inform me that it appears to be a thunderbird settings.

Checking the thunderbird settings they are correct including passwords, however, the mail client just refuses to download the mail providing a dialogue box with "login to account "<PRIVACY>" failed. Enter new password, Cancel, Retry.

Is there some way to fix this error?

Hey,

I recently downloaded Thunderbird because my mail service prodiver has added ads into the desktop application. Migrating everything over was a piece of cake, but I'm running into two issues now: 1) When I open thunderbird, the space to the right of the message column is filled with a request to donate money. I would like for that place to be blank when I'm not displaying an email there. 2) Once I have opened an email, I cannot close it again. I can replace it with a different email, but only way to have all of them closed is to close Thunderbird entirely and start it up again.

In the previous application, I could close emails by hitting ESC on my keyboard. Is there a way to have this functionality in thunderbird too?

Thanks in advance for your efforts!

I have many emails and enquiries and probably stored away well over a million in 27 years of correspondence as a tourism business. Thunderbird was extremely reliable, but since default threads introduced it is now unreliable are now very difficult to remove as all I want to do is view each email individually (no linking to anything) and search by name, date, or specific word. The experience of using Thunderbird is now frustrating because of threads that seem impossible to remove, time sorting etc. I have even tried going back to an older version, but lost a lot of mails in doing so.

My question after reading all the possible methods of removing Threads and having no success, would the wonderful creators of Thunderbird possibly consider creating an email browser version which simplified would give a viewing experience without any threads, or even an option of threads.. just going back to an older version of no threads at all without losing data?
