For years I have been using "Fetch headers only" option. But beginning from version 102.1.1 "Download full message body" link doesn't work at all. Tested on multiple accounts on multiple PC-s. Older version 91 works fine, but I can't roll back because of database conversion. Now I actually can't use Thunderbird because I can't read incoming mails.

I guess this could be considered "migration"... How can I sync the email between different machines, as & when I switch to use of a different installation of Thunderbird?

Here's my current setup: I have 2 laptops, and each is set up as a dual-boot with both Windows 10 Pro, and AntiX Linux. That makes a total of 4 operating systems, and I have Thunderbird installed on all 4.

I'm not sure how useful this is, for framing an answer to my question re. syncing, but here's extra info: I keep all my personal data on encrypted external hard drives, which I access using VeraCrypt. External is so I never lose my data if a given machine dies. Encrypted is so, even if the physical external hard drive is stolen, they can't steal the personal data. (I maintain a cloned backup external drive.) Today, I chose a location on the primary external hard drive, and created a folder named "Thunderbird email". I'm using the AntiX v19.4 OS right now, so I've set that new folder as the Local Folders location within this installation of Thunderbird.

I got this far, and then realized I need some guidance from more experienced users. So, I located this support page, and signed up for asking my questions about Thunderbird. Thanks in advance, for any help you can give me.

I have just received this message from Google / Gmail:

"Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0"

I currently use an older version of MS Outlook that apparently won't work after these changes are introduced.

My question is - will Thunderbird work with Gmail after the 30th May deadline? Is it compatible with 'Sign in with Google'?

Thank you for your help.

When I try to send a Thunderbird I get a long error message, the short of it is "authentication required but not provided." I've explored the numerous solutions in this help area but I'm pretty sure I've done more damage than good. I can receive emails just fine. Thunderbird is very important to me, I love the architecture. I've tried the various solutions to the point I can't remember what I've done (horrible change management on my part). I'm sure something is wrong in the various settings and preferences but I'm so confused now I don't know what to do next. My thinking is I need to remove the preferences and account settings and start over. I even uninstalled the reinstalled, alas, it saves all those settings which are obviously wrong. I have my email address books backed up but I have exactly 100 saved email folders and I REALLY don't want to lose them.

 Another nagging issue is I have to enter my password to open emails every new time I start Thunderbird. Firefox isn't saving passwords but I really don't care about that.
 So I'm at the begging point, how do I resolve this issue - please. Thanks much for the product and any support you can provide.

Recently, in recovering from a lightning hit, I somehow managed to create a phantom Sent folder under one of my e-mail accounts (I normally keep sent e-mails in a Sent folder under Local Folders). Everything continues to work all right - sent e-mails wind up in Local Folders/Sent, so the Sent folder under the account is only a cosmetic irritant, but if it is easy to get rid of I'd sure like to know how.

Hello, I'm trying to archive old gmail messages to free up storage space. On my server settings, under "Message Archives", it says to keep messages in "Archives" folder on Local Folders. However, when I archive messages they remain on the server.

Interestingly, there are two inboxes listed under the gmail account: an "Inbox" and an "All Mail" folder. The archived messages do not appear in the "Inbox" folder on Thundebird, but they seem to be re-downloaded into the "All Mail" folder.

Am I missing a step to get Thunderbird to delete the old messages?

Many thanks! This is version 91.11.0 on Linux.

I upgraded from Thunderbird 91.12.0 to 102.1.2 one week ago. Windows 10 21H2. I have many Saved Search folders. Since I upgraded when I click on any of them, no results (messages) are listed. If I right-click any of them, and left-click 'Properties', against 'Select folders to search' it now states '0 folders chosen', which is unexpected. I can fix this by manually re-choosing the folders for each one, but this shouldn't be necessary.

I did make a backup of my Thunderbird profile before the upgrade. I tried restoring one of the *.msf files from this backup to see if that would resolve it for the one saved search folder...but no.

Has anyone else come across this problem, and/or know a solution?

Alternatively if I can change the weekend colors that would work well. They are nearly the same yellow as the CURRENT color.

Hi! I've searched this question but can't seem to find a "guide". I've been using Thunderbird on my PC/Laptop for at least a decade. I have a "Profile" folder but most of my mail is stored in a separate folder on my C: drive. It appears under "Local Folders" in Thunderbird. I don't know too much about Macs but just got a Macbook Pro. I've installed thunderbird and configured it to my email servers. I can get new email and now I'm at the point where I'd like to get the rest of my folders, address books, add-ons, etc. from my Laptop to my new Mac and it's a bit overwhelming. I wasn't able to export/import my address book, I've placed the .mab files in the new profile on the mac and they're not appearing and I can't help but to think that I'm missing a lot of other steps as well. I'd almost like to start over from scratch on the new Mac since my old install has been moved several times from pc to pc to laptop, etc. Any suggestions are most welcome! Thanks so much for your help in advance. PS I also had two accounts appearing on my Mac. . nyj****.net and nyj****.net (pop3). I'd like to continue using POP3. I was also able to have only 1 inbox on my PC (it was located under my "Local Folders") as well as 1 trash, etc. Can I have that again? Thanks again in advance :-)
