Information on how to add the Google 'Tasks' into Thunderbird Calendar: I have a gmail imap account using OAuth2 as Authentication Method.

File > New > Calendar, select 'Google Calendar' >  click on 'Next' choose or enter: gmail email address   > click on 'Find Calendars' Select 'My Tasks' and click on 'Subscribe'

You may be asked to enter password as per Oauth2 Authentication.

See image. It shows the selection available when you follow instructions. It shows where 'My Tasks' is located in the Calendar list. I selected 'My Tasks' and then clicked on 'Task'. Create the Task and save. Task is shown in Thunderbird and on the right side you can see the Task is displayed via the webmail access using a browser.

About a year ago, I was experiencing problems with the current-at-the-time version of Thunderbird which I have been using for ~15 years after transitioning from Eudora. After much frustration, I decided to move to the beta releases & the problem (long forgotten) went away. I thought that the stable release would catch up with me & I could revert to the stable versions one day but I understand this is not possible or advisable.

Q1 : Can I revert from v. 102 betas to the current stable ?

Q2: With the latest 102 beta 2 release (4 June 2022), all my tabs disappeared & I can not get them back. I may be missing the obvious but I can not see how to get them back. I tried reverting to beta 1 but no change. The update was done via the usual "help, about" when it prompted to upgrade. Help messages on the subject seem to refer to older versions where things were obviously different.

Clearly something went wrong & I am not sure if I can fix it myself or must wait for a fix. Any tips welcome.

I am now using gmail to collect my (multiple accounts) pop mail for me until the problem rights itself. I traditionally use pop as I am often offline due to location. This is also my first ThunderBird support question ever.

I have used Thunderbird for years, I think I may be forced to change! I have lost IMAP login Gmail, from Thunderbird, since the last update download (last email on Thunderbird is 6th or 7th June 2022 Thunderbird constantly says it cannot log in to GMail IMAP, requests to try again or get new password (for which it requires the password it will not recognise) Still using Gmail on my phone, have had to launch Chrome to use Gmail on my (old) iMac [running 10.13.6, High Sierra - can't update further], so I know the password is still valid. It is Thunderbird which seems to be the problem, here. Have read through various Problems/questions similar, but have not found a solution that helps

I had a similar problem with an update of Firefox, in that I was unable to use the browser - in the end I had to delete the browser, and several weeks later, re-downloaded. (This meant that I lost all my bookmarks etc, and had to re-establish passwords, but I'm now back to Firefox)

I have a local folder that has about 950 emails in it and is about 9MB in size. Today, when I choose an email in this folder to view, it just says Loading... at the top and then there is a blank screen below. I have tried Repair Folder. I have tried creating a new folder and moving emails over to it to view them. Same problem happens in the new folder.

The odd thing is... if I choose to view the email in a new tab or in a new window... it displays fine.

Any ideas what I can do to fix this?

Dear Community,

I am trying to set up my organizational email address on Thunderbird. I am able to receive emails just fine. But when I try to send, I get an error message:

Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: SendAsDenied; {redacted}@hotmail.com not allowed to send as {redacted}@lehman.cuny.edu; STOREDRV.Submission.Exception:SendAsDeniedException.MapiExceptionSendAsDenied; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message [BeginDiagnosticData]Cannot submit message. {redacted: a long string of letter, numbers, colons, commas, and spaces} [EndDiagnosticData] [Hostname={redacted}.PROD.OUTLOOK.COM]. Please check the message and try again.

I think the error may be due to one or both of these complicating factors: (1) I also have my Hotmail account set up on TB. I think both accounts use Office 365. (2) My institutional email address and domain are NOT the same as the username/domain I use to log into this email account. To log into my institutional email from a browser, I go to outlook.office365.com and enter my login credentials: {redacted}@login.cuny.edu. This takes me to my institution's SSO login page. From there, I enter my login credentials, and then I'm directed back to Office365. But my email address is {redacted}@lehman.cuny.edu.

Even though my @lehman.cuny.edu account is selected as the "From" address in TB, the error message suggests that I am attempting to send from my @hotmail.com account. Weird.

In searching for answers, I found this page, but I don't think it solves my problem: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270491

BTW, I have tried a few different combinations of using the @lehman.cuny.edu or @login.cuny.edu names in the "User Name", "Account Name", and "Email Address" fields in the TB settings for this account. All result in similar error messages when I try to send an email from this account--or in some cases, losing the ability to receive messages too.

Here are the server settings I'm using in TB (I got these from the Office 365 settings after logging into my email account in a browser). IMAP Server name: outlook.office365.com Port: 993 Encryption method: TLS SMTP Server name: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Encryption method: STARTTLS

I'm using: Thunderbird Version 91.9.1 Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS


Can someone help me sort all this out please? I'd be very grateful!

Thunderbird now uses SQLITE data base files for Address Books. I'd like to copy an address book to another computer for use with Thunderbird there. How does Thunderbird recognize that a given SQLITE file is an address book? Is it solely based upon the file name (to the left of the .SQLITE porition of the name) beginning with the string "abook"? Is there something else in some configuration file that maintains this notion? Are there multiple files associated with a given address book? For example, I see these files in my profile directory: abook.sqlite abook.sqlite-shm abook.sqlite-wal So, I'm guessing the answer to that last question is Yes.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

I am moving Thunderbird to a new Windows 11 (64 bit) machine, and downloaded Thunderbird 91.10.0. I used a new profile when I created my two email accounts. But there are several problems: 1) when I exit, Thunderbird doesn't close down completely 2) when I try to look at addons.thunderbird.net or Release Notes from within Thunderbird, the new window never loads (on the other hand, this means that there are no add-ons to confuse the issue) 3) Thunderbird occassionally crashes. I can send you Troubleshooting Information if you need it; it means nothing to me.

The above is the simple version of the problem -- I have been working on this for 2 days, and am no closer to a solution. Any help would be appreciated.

Currently reports as 91.9.1 though the Troubleshooting <show update history> says last update 91.9.0 failed on 5 May. Does not show 91.9.1 as having been installed. 91.8.1 was the reported last success on 20 April. The Help/about Thunderbird reports TB as being 91.9.1 and up to date.

I get a regular message about TB failure to update and to go to website. From this message I use the button to download 91.10.0 exe and then run it to install - from a User account (this is where I run all my programs from) but using my Admin password. After installation TB reports it is 91.10.0. On closure and restart TB reports it is 91.9.1

The Admin account shows TB as 91.10.0 but I have never set TB up in this account because I do not use it in this mode. TB continues to work but I assume I am not getting security updates etc.

Have cleared cache to no effect. It feels like a 'stuck s/w switch' but i do not know where i should look. All assistance welcome.
