I am unable to get Thunderbird to display the correct name for an email recipient in Filters and Search, and I cannot determine where the name is being pulled from.

Here is the address book with the correct name: address book

Here is the Filter screen with the incorrect name: https://i.imgur.com/60xLiP0.png

Here is the Search function with the incorrect name: https://i.imgur.com/YvutE7E.png

I checked Thunderbird's Account Settings and Options and there isn't any instance of either the correct or incorrect name in there. I even checked the Google account and that name doesn't appear there either.

Help please?

Hello, I want to use S/MIME in Thunerbird 78.10.1 (64-bit). In my account settings i've import a .pfx-file. I created this certificate with openssl. I choose this personal certificate for digital signature and encryption (i want to use end-to-end encryption).

If I try to send a signed mail I got an error message: "Application could not find the signing certificate which I choose in my account settings [...]" --> imprecise wording, I am using Thunderbird in German

But I only got this error message, if I choose as encryption technology S/MIME. When I choose OpenPGP as encryption technology I got no error message and the e-mail is sent digital signed.

Where is the problem?

Thanks for help.

Hey, gurus!

Unfortunately all I can find is how to migrate to another machine when you have just installed Thunderbird. Unfortunately, I have already set up the Thunder on other machine [for the same e-mail address] and now the same adress has two different profiles - on the old machine and on the new one. Is there to way to merge old with new, as I cannot simply copy/paste it seems?

Thank you!

Hi I'm a long time user of Firefox and have had virtually no problems over around 20 years. I particularly like the flexibility for backup and email file storage.

I store my email files on an encrypted partition. I have been doing this for around 6 years and I have had no problems - until a couple of days ago.

My two problems are 1) Even though the "check for messages at startup" box is ticked it doesn't do this and 2)Any emails that are open at the time of shut down and no longer open on restarting

Both problems arrived at the same time. I increased the size of the encrypted partition mainly because there was no longer sufficient free space to allow the folders to be compacted. Around this time there was also an update.

I have tried uninstalling Thunderbird and reloading but alas no change

The partition identification letter is unchanged

The profile is still on the C drive. When I deleted it before uninstalling Thunderbird, Thunderbird wouldn't start ( I had expected it to create a new profile ). On replacing the profile from a backup, Thunderbird started up just fine but the problems still existed.

This is not a show stopping issue but with 6 email addresses to check and frequently leaving emails open under a tab as a reminder until the issue is dealt with, it is an inconvenience.

If anybody can suggest how I can resolve this irritation I would be very grateful.

Many thanks

Peter

I don't mind having a chat feature in Thunderbird, but due to my deeply ingrained hatred towards Google, I want Gtalk completely gone from my Linux PC. It's obsolete anyway. How do I remove it from Chat on Thunderbird? Is it integrated into the Thunderbird deb package, or some sort of plugin or separate package? I don't mind losing the entire chat feature, since I don't use it anyway.

I have two deleted folders from two different accounts that keep deleting old emails. It seems that any email with more then a month will get automatically deleted. These 2 accounts are from the same server. However there is a third one that despite sharing the same server does not have the same problem. I have already questioned the technical support of the hosting service and they told me that from their side, everything is ok.

So I'm left with thunderbird. However, I have reviewed the settings and everything is as it should be. In Synch & Storage the "Don't delete any messages" are checked. For Add-ons i use Folder Account, Provider for Google Calendar, Quicktext and Send Later. SpamAssassin for SPAM detection. Connected by IMAP with SSL/TLS.

Ideas? Thanks.

Outgoing emails with PDF attachments are being rejected by recipient's mail server, with suggestion that a virus or malware is present. This is a problem that has arisen since Version 78.10 - for years have been sending PDF attachments without any problems.

No virus or malware found after full scan of this machine. Can send a PDF file as an attachment to an Outlook message from this machine without any issues, but attempting to do so with Thunderbird produces rejection message as attached.

I have accessed a different machine, also running v78.10.1, and this doesn't produce the error. Suggests a corruption in TB installation on this machine?

Can the profile be corrupted? If so, is there anything that can be done about it?

I am occasionally using an e-mail server with out of date TLS settings. Unfortunately, there is no work around for one particular job that I have to do.

When I first was updated to version 78, I got the error described in the string, "can not send mail after update ver78...." I updated my TLS settings as follows: security.tls.version.min = 1 security.tls.version.enable-deprecated = true

And everything seemed to work. However, today, I can no longer send e-mails with that server. It appears that another update broke things again.

I am currently running 78.10.1 on Windows 10. I can receive e-mail, no problem. With the bad server, a test message appears to be sent and gets put in the sent messages folder but doesn't show up in my inbox on another account. I'm not sure of the date but it appears that a message I sent on April 28 worked.

I'm filing a bug report

I am on Beta Version 89.0b2 (32 bit)

Recently when trying to send emails with addresses in both the To Line and the Bcc Line, when I hit the send button, all I get is a blink of the draft email and nothing else. It does not get sent and I do not get any visible error. Also, when I try to save or send an email, I often get an error message that it cannot attach the attachment, for me to check and ensure I have access to the file. Thank You!

Hi All, I like Thunderbird, I've been using it for a decade+, however I think there have been some changes that have become irksome.

Maybe I'm wrong but it seems Thunderbird has recently changed it's notification routines. In my mind when Thunderbird was in the background and / or minimized it would not play a notification sound. but now it sounds off even when it's minimized or my machine is idle with the screen blanked.

It also seemed to care what hour it was I.E. sleeping times and would not make a peep. Now I hear it day and night.

Yes there is a option / preference to turn of playing sounds but toggling this on and off by going into preferences seems like a lot of work.

Is there a addon to allow controlling notifications depending on focus state of the application, or whether it's minimized or not? etc.

I do not live by my email. But I don't want to shut it down every time I want to focus on a game or programming project.

I think it would be useful to put a notification toggle on the menu or as a addon that could make this easy to turn on and off, or add a preference setting that if Thunderbird is minimized to not allow playing sounds etc.

Certain machine states like screen saver active would also be nice as a preference setting for notifications.

If I've missed an addon that does this or a preference setting, please let me know. Otherwise consider the preference settings above to be a request.

In the mean time I'll look into what it takes to make an addon and publish it if I am so able.

In the time I've been using TB happily, at least a decade I'd guess, I've never had anything like this, including on my current PC. Not one activity starts promptly, all have the dreaded blue loading circle. It's most marked on initial load, but appears nearly all the time, including while typing text into emails.

Hello everyone,

First of all: Thanks for the great work that you do.

I was once told that there are no stupid questions, but this one might be the exception. Nevertheless I'll ask it:

1. If I use thunderbird with an existing account like hotmail or gmail I need to enter my account credentials in order to establish a connection to gmail, hotmail etc. I read that those credentials are saved in my profile. Is this profile saved only locally or do I transmit my credentials (password etc.) to a server of Mozilla? Short: Do you guys have access to my passwords? (I really hope not or only in an ecrypted form)

2. My mails are saved on your servers, even if only temporarily. So are your server encrypted?

I know that it is not polite to ask to many questions if someone is doing something for free, but this is really decisive for me when it comes to the question of using thunderbird or not... I hope u understand.

Thanks and best regards Claudio
