Is Mozilla working on the below email I have received from Microsoft? "The safety and security of your information is top priority for Microsoft. To help keep your account secure, Microsoft will no longer support the use of third-party email and calendar apps which ask you to sign in with only your Microsoft Account username and password. To keep you safe you will need to use a mail or calendar app which supports Microsoft’s modern authentication methods. If you do not act, your third-party email apps will no longer be able to access your Outlook.com, Hotmail or Live.com email address on September 16th.


What do you need to do?

If you are receiving this email, you are currently using an email or calendar app that uses a less secure authentication method to connect to your Outlook.com email account. You will need to upgrade your third-party mail and calendar app to a version which supports modern authentication methods.

Microsoft provides free versions of Outlook for your PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices which can be easily downloaded and connect to your email account. Using an updated version of an Outlook application will ensure you are connecting in the most secure way.

How can you set up your Gmail, Apple Mail, or other third-party mail application?

Various non-Microsoft applications will have their own steps for connecting to your Outlook.com email account using modern authentication methods. See our help article - Modern Authentication Methods now needed to continue syncing Outlook Email in non-Microsoft email apps. However, you may need to contact the creators of those applications to provide you with instructions. In many cases, simply removing and re-adding your account with the latest version of that application will configure it to use modern authentication methods.

I use Thunderbird (64bit, 128.0) to check my gmail account. When composing an email I can not choose google drive when sending an attachment. I've tried installing the google drive desktop app on my computer but once selecting the file I want to send, I get an error that I don't have permission to access that file.

"Sending of the message failed. There was an error attaching Expenses 2020.gsheet. Please check that you have access to the file."

It is a file I own. I can however, send a pdf file that was stored in my google drive.

How do I send google drive files using thunderbird email? Thanks in advance for the help. Todd

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

When you have multiple (2) accounts with previous accounts, the passwords are many. I can not get logged in as the passwords I use are not working. My account does work on my Windows 10 and I am on a Mac mini. I am working with Optimum.net server. I know, today, there are network across the world with problems. MicroSoft, it seems. All of this does not help my situation to get my email running on Thunderbird. I have been working on this for three days now. Thanks for any comments or questions to help me. I hope you have my email address. //... Joe

I got this notification:

"You must have the 'Encrypt' button present in your compose window toolbar to be able to schedule messages with Send Later. If you removed it some point, you need to customize the toolbar and put it back. This is due to a Thunderbird bug which we hope will be fixed soon."

I don't use encryption, but do use "Send Later." I also never removed the button. I tried to customize both the main toolbar and the one in the composition window; neither one had a button under "customize" for encryption. Can anyone help with this?

As stated, Thunderbird 128.0user Nebula only download around 448 messages from my shaw.ca mail server. The download starts with the earliest messages on the server, thus no current (latest) emails are downloaded to Nebula. I am short about 3.9k messages in this example. I am using pop3 as "I need the independency" on this computer. Earlier versions of Thunderbirds has no problems keeping up to date with all my accounts and their message volumes.

Thx.

I am running Thunderbird Flatpak from Flathub on Linux Fedora.

I just checked for updates in Software app. I noticed a few, plus system updates so ran them. I remember seeing Thunderbird reported something weird like ‘v128 [arrowright] v115’. I am making that up but I remember two numbers and the left hand one was a higher number than right hand one.

I thought it was odd but carried on, assuming Software updates never go backwards so it must be some weird anomaly. After rebooting, after updates done, I now get an error/warning when I open Thunderbird…

I’m now confused and worried I screwed up my Thunderbird, in which is 20 years of email. Hoping someone can allay my fears and perhaps advise what I should do? thanks

Gitlab adds a "X-GitLab-NotificationReason" field to the email headers, but only sometimes. I want to filter out messages that do not contain this header. How do I do it? The only operators I can see in the GUI are "contains", "doesn't contain", "is", "isn't", "begins with" and "ends with".

They don't take regexes or wildcards, do they? In that case maybe "is *" would work?
