I want to install TB on another one or two of my machines, but don't want to have to go thru all the hassle of modifying all those pages of my settings in Options and Account every time. Is there any way to save those settings so I can just paste them into TB on the other machine(s)? Is there one or more files somewhere that stores that data that can be copy/pasted to the new machine(s)' TB installation?

I just received a notification that Thunderbird independently deleted a number of drafts in one of my email accounts without my knowledge or authorization. This was also logged in the "Activity Manager." I could not find any settings concerning such an activity. Why did this happen, and how can it be stopped, since I obviously do not want to delete any of my drafts.

How do I reset Thunderbird 78.5.0 back to single spacing. I do not mean the message area, but the listings and folders. Double spacing takes up too much space.

This seems to be another case of someone thinking they know more than the end user about what the end user wants.

The incoming mail stopped coming after the Automatic update of Thunderbird. Our old Mail-server does not understand the new versions. I can download the Old Thunderbird version 68.11 and I can import the contacts. I can not import the filters because there is a fault in version 68.11 because it wants to import LOCAL MAIL instead of FILTERS. How can I prevent Thunderbird from updating to a newer version ?

As the topic. Thunderbird does not receive mail after updating to 78.5.0 if the pop3 account is set to SSL. Before the update, everything worked fine. If I disable SSL encryption on my account, the mail is received correctly. Oddly enough, sending mail with SSL encryption set works fine. If you can report it directly to the developers, please help.

Regards

This morning, Thunderbird stopped retrieving email from my G-Mail account. I've check my G-Mail, and new messages are being received in my inbox. (Older emails received earlier are still listed in my inbox.) As of this morning (11/30/20) no new emails are being downloaded to my inbox... the "working" hourglass symbol is stuck.

I've tried deactivating my antivirus, and still no email downloads.

Are others experiencing this issue?

Hello all and thank you in advance for your help. There was an update and the emails vanished. Now, there are choices to "Read messages" "Write a new message" " Search messages" etc.... When I click on read messages, nothing happens. That is what replaced the old inbox, where I was able to see all the emails for the particular account that was selected. Any ideas? Thanks.

I just created a new user and new mailbox. It works fine in the Comcast portal but not when I set up in Thunderbird. These are the settings that Comcast gave me to use:

IMAP protocol Incoming settings: imap.comcast.net / port 993 / SSL/TLS / Normal password / user name ****@comcast.net Outgoing settings: smtp.comcast.net / port 465 / SSL/TLS / Normal password / user name ***@comcast.net

It keeps telling me the password is wrong "Alert 1014" I know the password is correct. I use it to log into the Comcast portal and I have retyped it 4 times very carefully.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Old computer, usually leave on and logged in. Not using that much. Thunderbird asked for password but didn't work. Old computer being really slow etc. email problems, got a new laptop that I just turned on an hour ago for the first time. Best buy set it up, and back to trying to get into email. Get yellow error message I put in the subject line. From reading a few threads I can offer The screen I'm in is a set up your existing email address Incoming pop3 outgoing smtp both at att.net came up automatically?

know the email address is right. Pretty sure about the password "your name" tried caps and not caps

Didn't have gmail set up on here although I accessed it through a browser just now to write this.

Don't understand some of the talk about going through webmail to do something? is there a website to see my emails?

So this started on my old computer and is still happening on the new computer

Thank you

Hi, my group of 5 users has been experiencing problems with Thunderbird emails portal. We can not send, nor receive emails through Thunderbird, our acounts seem to be locked somehow (for the past few days), which we never experienced before. We can send/receive emails in the web-version (https://mail136.websupport.sk/?_task=mail&_mbox=INBOX), but not through Thunderbird. Have you got any idea why and what we should do? Please, see attached a document with screenshots, if that helps. Thank you in advance for the response, Pavol Porubsky (Slovakia)

Yesterday I opened up by email and noticed the last 2 and a half years of emails disappeared from my computer. I am a bit a hoarder with my emails and save them for reference. I use road runner for my server. When I looked on the server the old emails were still there. However, the recent emails the ones I received yesterday 12/1 and today 12/2 were no longer on the server. I checked my settings and I have set to not delete from server. So I have 2 issues 1. Emails disappeared from my local computer storage. 2. Thunderbird appears to be deleting emails from roadrunner server.
