I am an IT tech that makes house calls and I install Thunderbird for a lot of my clients who don't want to buy Outlook. It's my favorite of the (ever dwindling) free email clients, I've tried them all believe me. However the default view settings I find to be lacking. No reply, or delete button etc. So I always customize the view and make it the way I want. No problem there.

The problem comes when 6 months later the client accidentally click something they didn't mean to, removes a button, sorts by subject instead of by date, things like that. I work with mostly retired people, and some very advanced in age. They don't want to ever change the sorting and no amount of explaining how to fix it will work. It would be really helpful if there was a setting, somewhere in the view menu maybe, to lock the current display settings, so that they can't be changed without unlocking them first.

I've combed through the settings and done some searching in the add-ons but haven't found anything like it. Is that possible?

My Netzero emails don't all sync up, such as sent messages and drafts.

It appears that only drafts and sent mails made on the website can be seen on the website, and only those made in Thunderbird can be seen in Thunderbird.

I've heard of a manual way to move things around, but which seems overly complicated to me. I don't trust I would manage to do it correctly even once, let alone on a continual basis. Too many opportunities to mess up, and I certainly would.

I need it to be about as simple as it is for my other email accounts.

I'd like to know how to make Thunderbird automatically keep all the folders on my Netzero accounts synced up, so that all my sent mails and drafts are available from both the website and in Thunderbird.

Since v91 New mail notification popup not working on mail filtered to local folders

My current version is 102.5.1 on Windows 10. I connect to my mail server via POP and have the majority of my mail filtered with rules to local folders. Prior to the v91 update all new mail would trigger the popup alert that would display sender, subject line, etc. Since the v91 update the only new mail that triggers this popup alert is the mail that is not filtered to a local folder and remains in the inbox. All new mail that is filtered to local folders will still play the notification sound and display a red "new mail" dot on the tray icon, but does not show the popup alert. I've tried every variation of alert settings in the preferences to fix this and it still is not working. I often miss that new mail has arrived because the red dot in the tray icon is not enough to grab my attention like the popup is. Is there a way to make this work the way it used to where the popup alert happens on every new email regardless of what folder it ends up in?

I use Thunderbird v102.5.1 with my gmail addy to manage my mail, contacts and calendar. I've got Thunderbird setup the way I want it and when I imported my mail - it didn't properly import the folders (labels?) and it's a MESS! I want to use Thunderbird to organize my mail and have already spent hours doing so - only to realize gmail on the web is not reflecting the folder creations or sorting that I'm doing in Thunderbird.

Is there any way I can force the webmail to grab the folders/sorting I've done in Thunderbird so they're both the same?

Thank you!

Appreciate your guidance in this regard.

Hello Team,

Threading is a useful way of displaying your message list in Thunderbird. Instead of just listing messages sorted by date, Thunderbird can group messages in tree-like structures by conversations. This is the default view starting from version 102.

Please give me a solution how to disable this feature. Not required for the thread.

I've been using Thunderbird from day 1. Now I have a hard drive full of old e-mail, including the attachments. I don't want to delete it as the business history is valuable. What I would like to do is to move some folders to an alternate location. I want the folders to still appear in the column on the left and the hierarchy to remain, but they are physically on another drive.

For instance: V {graphic} Inbox

   V {graphic} Vendors
       V {graphic} BobsWelding
       V {graphic} JimsSteelCompany
       V {graphic} JimsSteelCompany_Before1998   (this located on another drive, say d:\e-mail_backup\)
       V {graphic} RalphsFasteners
       V {graphic} GiovannisPizza

Not only would this solve the capacity issue, but would be a convenient means of backing up e-mail in a readily accessible form. I can write a full use case if it would be useful.

I have multiple email addresses, and I would like to group the inboxes by use (work, leisure, spam,..).

In particular, suppose I have three email addresses and would like a merged view of the first two, but not the third. How can I achieve this? Is there an add-on? (I couldn't find one.)

The best solutions I came up with:

- make a filter that moves all emails from the 1st to the 2nd inbox, and just look at the second inbox. - forward all mail - make a filter that moves all emails in the 3rd inbox to a subfolder, such that it doesn't appear in the unified inbox

All of these have drawbacks.. Specifically, I would like to reply to the emails using the email address they were sent to, which becomes cumbersome if I actually move emails from the 1st to the 2nd inbox. Moving all emails away from the 3rd inbox kinda works, but I don't like it, because it makes things awkward for other reasons. Any help is appreciated!

Hi Thunderbird community,

I am trying to setup a 2.0GB USB drive with a copy of Thunderbird portable. The problem I have is that the default behavior grows the local cache (profile / ImapMail) out of control, fills up the key, and causes failures.

So far I have: -Changed "Compact all Folders when it will save over" 1 MB -Set "Override automatic cache management" to 250MB -deleted and resynced the IMAP files in case an error was causing a failure to compact. My local cache of IMAP folders still grows out of control.

What I need is a setting to make Thunderbird not keep a local drive cache and just work out of RAM. Or at minimum hard limit the cache to around 1.2 GB.

Does anyone know how to do this and would be willing to share?

Thanks in advance, John N.
