Hej Jag har installerat Thunderbird på en ny dator och då stannar e-posten kvar på servern fast de finns i Thunderbird. På den gamla datorn laddades de ner helt till Thunderbord. På den gamla datorn har jag version 115.11.1 (32-bitar) och där finns funktionen "Lämna kvar meddelanden på servern" att välja under serverinställningar och den rutan är urbockad. Den nya datorn har versionen 115.12.1 (64-bitar) och där finns inte den funktionen med. Hur gör jag för att Thunderbird ska hämta e-postmeddelandena och inte lämna kvar dem på servern. Tack på förhand. Johan

New Solution needed:I could Send mail, but not Receive it, using KB 2024 article on Hotmail and Qauth2

I am writing to let the community know that, at least in my case, the guidance from TB 1/2024 KB article on Qauth2, [and linked Microsoft article], didn't solve the odd password behavior that began around January, 2024, between TB and my Microsoft hotmail account--which had worked perfectly with TB for maybe 10 years?

Beginning in January I typically received an error message that SMTP server login failed; please enter password. But after fixing that as per the KB article (first trying to maintain normal password, then when that wouldn't solve it, turning on 2FA, switching to Qauth2 with cookies enabled), it turned out for me that with Qauth2 and 2FA, I could send mail okay but then the Outlook.IMAP server would not connect so receiving emails stopped. Several times after this failure I tried switching back to normal password AND turn OFF 2fa in order to get Outlook.IMAP to reeive email...but then SMTP would keep requesting passwords, and every day or two i'd get a repeated request to reenter the Imap server password for receivfing also.

The only stable fix I found after weeks of livign with this and debating abandonment of TB came when I turned 2FA back on, requested an app password from my Microsoft Account, changed TB Server settings back to Normal password for SMTP and Outlook.Imap, and then entered the App password when prompted by TB for to eonnect with server for receiving and sending.

This has worked fine and apparently been stable, without new reqauests to me for passwords, for 2 days, whereas all other fixes in past couple months have not lasted longer than a day or less before TB requests again that I enter a password to connect with my hotmail account. (All through this my gmail connection via TB ahas remained flawless, thought I did get a request for a gmail app password, which I obtained and entered--just once and all has since been fine).

I don't know why several careful step by step attempts to do everything in Mozilla's Thunderbird KB and Microsoft articles suggested didn't work--for a residential Microsoft account, whether I tried to follow guideance for those experiencing SMTP problem only, or the Imap server connection generally.

My only guess about why my Win 10 desktop installation is different? I have Outlook for Android running on two or 3 different Android devices also, perhaps that complicated things?  I also used to have a mirrored account (in other words, name@hotmail.com is my main account, but I also had a 2nd "nickename" acct with the same name, set up as name@outlook. com.  

(But I removed that nicknamed acct in case it was causing any of my authentication problems; made no difference. )

Guten Tag,

siehe Anlage!

Diese Fenster öffnen sich alle bei nur einer Sitzung, auf nur einem Computer!

Klicke ich etwas nur einmal an ("Mozilla Thunderbird Email", "E-Mail-Adresse vergessen?", "Datenschutzerklärung", " "Konto erstellen" (Anzeige es liegt ein Fehler vor) oder auf "Weiter" passiert nichts!

Auf mich macht das den Eindruck das jemand an meine Anmeldedaten ran will!

In der Zwischenzeit bekomme ich auf diesen einen Computer auch keine Gmail´s mehr. Diese lese ich auf meinem Handy oder auf den anderen Computer!

Ich kann kein englisch und arbeite auch nur mit dem Übersetzungsprogram.

Auf diesem Computer habe ich das Programm deinstalliert und später neu installiert. Das Problem ist geblieben.

Meine Alternative E-Mailadresse ist hanssy58@web.de da gibt es keine Probleme.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Hans Sbrzesny


Hello,

see attachment!

These windows all open in just one session, on just one computer!

If I click on something just once ("Mozilla Thunderbird Email", "Forgotten email address?", "Privacy policy", "Create account" (message that there is an error) or on "Continue" nothing happens!

It gives me the impression that someone wants to get my login details!

In the meantime, I no longer receive any Gmails on this one computer. I read them on my cell phone or on the other computer!

I don't speak English and only work with the translation program.

I uninstalled the program on this computer and later reinstalled it. The problem remains.

My alternative email address is hanssy58@web.de and there are no problems there.

Best regards

Hans Sbrzesny

Encrypt outgoing messages with Thunderbird such that I cannot access them

A bit of an odd request, I know, but I'm trying to send encrypted email from Thunderbird such that only the recipient, and not the sender (me) can access the message once it has been sent. I direct Thunderbird not to save a copy in the "Sent" folder when I do this, but Thunderbird still encrypts the message such that my personal key can decrypt it. Is it possible to send a message that can only be decrypted with one key? I have access to the recipient's private key, if that helps.

I have been using TB for a long time, currently 115.11.1 (64-bit)

Out of the blue I have started to get on loading up TB: Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to live.thunderbird.net. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

Can you please advise?

Thanks

I noticed yesterday with version 115.4.2 32-bit (I just updated now) that an e-mail, part of a correspondence, would not load. Actually it did load but it seems to have permanently replaced the original message with a completely different e-mail from a different sender. But the From and the Subject lines pertained to the e-mail that was supposed to be there. The replacement message, if it matters, is an e-transfer notification, again, from a completely different sender.

I noticed then that a few other e-mails show only code data in the body. This is loading from a Gmail account which appears to be intact when I log in there directly.

I was also concerned when I first went to open Thunderbird from the taskbar, that a Win 10 pop-up appeared as I hovered over to click the icon, showing "recent" e-mails from all different dates, most of them well in the past and certainly not accessed recently. This has me concerned about a security breach.


PS: When I tried to remove the "recent" e-mails pop-up menu I accidentally deleted the taskbar shortcut and now can't get it back. Well, I can but the TBird icon won't reload and it just shows up as a blank icon.

Hi! I would like to use Thunderbird with an email account provided by my university. It uses the gmail web client and is provided through google workspace (I believe). The login process involves a redirect to the campus authentication page, with a DUO 2FA ping. Is there a way to add this account to Thunderbird? Programs like Gnome Online Accounts allow me to add this as a google account and then follow the usual process in a web browser window. However, when I try this on Thunderbird, I get as far as granting access through Google's system, but then the system exits with "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." Is there a way to set this up correctly? It looks like it almost works.

Greetings, and thanks, again, for all the nifty Mozilla stuff we've been using since the last century (and donating). Once upon a time, there was an add-on that allowed Thunderbird users to export a simple list containing account info including login names and passwords. I think it quit working around version 57 of TB. Since then, it would appear that several users have inquired about how to do that export, and the general answers are either "use the import/export function" or "you can't do that anymore, 'cause we don't want you to," or something equally off putting. As many users note, the Import/Export function is a shotgun approach, and doesn't really address the matter of getting username and password - let alone a simple list thereof. And it's not recommended for profiles over 2GB, which could be the majority of users, these days. And so, on to the questions: Is there now, in 2024, or will there be, a feature or add-on of Mozilla's Thunderbird that will allow a user to export a simple list of usernames and passwords to a readable file, like CSV or TXT or XLSX or ODT? If so, when? If not, why not? Thanks, again (again).

I got this weird error on my computer when trying to use Thunderbird after a power outage. ( see attached file)

All the Dreamhost server settings are good on the computer. I am is getting the emails on my Android phone, there seems to be some security issue cert with Dreamhost that is not satisfied.

I have read about uninstalling Thunderbird and re-installing to clear any glitches but just want to make sure there is no simple fix before I go and uninstall. Will this kill the whole application or will the profile remain and keep all the initial settings so I can get back to my normal setting once reinstalled?

Thanks

Ralph

I always use Mozilla Thunderbird for email. Today, it would not send outgoing email. Any email gives me a failed message: "Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Spam detected by content scanner. Message rejected (ID 665754780026FB52). Please check the message and try again."

My ISP insists the problem is not with their server, and I need to have Mozilla correct it.
