I completely get now why people moved to Gmail, because the search in Thunderbird is such utter garbage that it's just mindboggling. It's barely functional and often I end up having to locate the mails manually instead of searching for them.

My Thunderbird has just developed a major problem. When I send an email with no attachemnt, it goes out fine. When I send an email with an attachment it is not sent even though it is listed in the "sent" folder. Does anyone know what's going on? Should I remove the program and reinstall it? Help!

I am about ready to give up...unable to import contacts from my windows live 2012 on windows 10 PC. I have tried ever thing I can think of and find on youtube. Why is it so hard to do. I wish you can tell me a simple way to do this. I like Firefox and have been using it for a long time and would like to move my email to Thunderbird. I have too many contacts to do them one at a time. Please help me before I give up on moving to Thunderbird. Thanks

It would be nice if there was a PDF preview option. For example if you click once on the PDF attachment of an e-mail the PDF should pop up on the same section as the e-mail so you can quickly see it and go back to the mail again. Is there any addon that still works with the newest version. I tried PDF viewer but this didn't work unfortunately.

Currently, on the Thunderbird email screen, I have 2 account setups for my comast email: 1) pop3 and 2) IMAP. I have 2 because I was trying to solve a problem. The outgoing server on comcast times out and I cannot send mail anymore. It started about 3 months ago. I have tried ports 465 and 587 to no avail. I have always use TLS/SSL connection security as the setting. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try next to fix it so I can send mail using Thunderbird?

When I reply to a reply I do not see the original post. All I see is the reply to my original e-mail. If I "highlite" where the original should display, it will show. But as soon as I start typing a response it disappears. I used to be able to see the original, the reply, the reply, the replay. The whole back and forth. Something in some update within the last several months changed something. Please help me get the whole email exchange back again. Thanks.

As of thunderbird release 78.12.0 POP mail wont accept a password to a Gmail account. I have 2 Gmail accounts, both were POP mail. Now one of them works OK as usual, the other wont accept an password to logon to its Gmail account. I've been working this for 2 days with no success. I reloaded Thunderbird and now they have been converted to IMAP accounts. I dont want that, I'm better off with POP mail. I've been through the FAQ's, learned a lot, but my problem remains. Very frustrating!

Hi, I was not aware of the option that was active: that the newly installed IMAP conversion of what was a POP account had a setting that was following the server's settings. When I opened TB, I saw that messages were being deleted from the trash folder. I tried the repair function but I'm guessing that made it worse in the end? Because the file in the location was smaller in size after that.

Is it still possible to retrieve the messages? I copied them from the old POP account into the new IMAP account by: CTRL A and then moving them to the designated folder. Which was in this case the same, trash.

One might think why is that so important if it was the trash folder, well, it is because it was not yet reviewed properly of what emails really could go and what should be kept or the contents partially copied into a text file or so.

Are there steps that can be taken still? Thanks :):)

With no warning, my prior version of Thunderbird (which I have used for many years) installed version 92.ob1. At the end of the installation everything associated with the software had disappeared - all folders with saved emails, address book, settings to log into the University at Buffalo email system through which all of my emails move. I can't find any of this stuff in program file locations, on my Backblaze backup system, or using the system restore feature of Windows 7, anywhere I have looked guided by a Google quest to find these data. I am royally screwed. I was not warned that this might happened. My Thunderbird had been updated a countless number of times in the past with no problems. I see no way out of this terrible situation. I will not trust this software any longer and am change to another product as I seek to reconstruct some stuff, such as addresses. Other valuable items appear to be gone forever. The UB IT help desk told me they no longer support Thunderbird, again with no warning, thus washing their hands of my problem Thuderbird created. Alan Lockwood ahl@buffalo.edu
