Since the update on 14 September - 102.2.2 - the 3 emails I have coming from another server are locked and nothing will come through. I checked the settings and the computer says it is logged into the other email address, but a little key shows in the 3 email addresses I have used for years and which were OK until the update on 14 September.

I have tried checking everything, but I am at a loss to understand why it changed in the first place from the day before. Can anyone please help me??

While upgrading Thunderbird to v102, something went amiss and my profile was corrupted. I fairly quickly recognised that a clean installation would be a good idea, and then import my old profile. I managed to import some emails, but a large number of folders remain which will not import. When I use the import tool on the relevant Inbox folder, the process completes immediately with a blank import in the Local Folders area. Is it possible that Thunderbird thinks these folders have been imported already, and if so is there a way to reset that? I seem to recall reading somewhere that it will not import folders that have already been imported.

Hi all

Since yesterday Thunderbird is unable to connect to the server and download new emails.

I got the following error message: "Non-overridable TLS error occurred. Handshake error or probably the TLS version or certificate used by the server mail.blacknight.com is incompatible."

I am running Thunderbird v102.2.2 for 4 days now but yesterday was the first time this error has appeared.

security.tls.version.min is set to 1. In fact, it has been set to 1 for more than a year now.

The host tells me everything is fine with the cert used by their server.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

This regards our Mozilla Thunderbird email. After sending an e-mail, and then looking in the sent folder, it does not show up. I have to use the "search" in order to find it. It never worked this way before. Also, when trying to find e-mails in my other customized folders, nothing shows up. The whole method of folders is not working. This was noticed 3 days ago. I checked my settings, and it shows that the folders are to hold the emails. Can't figure it out. My husband has died and I need your assistance. I need help with folder set up as many wound up in archives, then by category. Very difficult to get to. Thank you. Darlene

Using Thunderbird V102.3 When attempting to open a previously saved message, Thunderbird generates an enormous number of tabs, each with its own message, which makes using the application a PITA.

I attached 2 images. One image shows a highlighted Sent message (Subject: Tribe of David - September Newsletter Reminder), which I will attempt to open.

The other image image shows the result of attempting to open the Sent message (Subject: Tribe of David - September Newsletter Reminder). The result is that a crazy slew of tabs, each with its own message, are generated

Hi!

I am having a problem getting my email using:

   Thunderbird version 102.0.3

I started having problems suddenly while using

   Thunderbird version 102.0.2

What I mean is that Monday evening I logged on and the email worked well. During the night I suddenly started getting the error message of:

  The server does not support the selected authentication
  method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the
  'Account Settings | Server settings'.

when I checked my mail.

I know that I am doing something basically wrong but I cannot see what that is. I looked on the web and the settings below should work for "aol.com" under Thunderbird.

Thunderbird settings

  Server name: pop.aol.com
  Port: 995
  Connection security: SSL/TLS
  Authentication method: OAuth2

I updated Thunderbird from 102.0.2 to 102.0.3 and the problem persisted.

Any help would be appreciated.

I prefer to use S/MIME to digitally sign my email messages. Prior to Thunderbird 102.3.1, using S/MIME to digitally sign my messages was the default.

Now, for every single email I send, when I click "Send" I get the dialog box "OpenPGP Alert - Cannot digitally sign this message, because you haven’t yet configured end-to-end encryption for <email address>". I have to then select "S/MIME" from the encryption/signature menu.

It's a pain to have to remember to do this for every email I send.

I checked my account settings. "Do not use OpenPGP for this identity" is checked. The correct S/MIME certificate is selected.

How do I set the default signature method to be S/MIME instead of OpenPGP in this new version of Thunderbird?

I'm running Thunderbird 102.3.1 on Mac OS 10.14 Mojave. The Enigmail plugin is disabled. I have an OpenPGP key that I created 20 years ago on my system, and Thunderbird recognizes its presence, but I do not use it.
