I'm not sure where to put this post. Sorry.

I don't have a lot of internal hard drive space and want to have Thunderbird store emails to an external hard drive. So, I have a few questions about this.

Q1: How do I do this? I saw a procedure on a non-Mozilla site and it seemed questionable to me. So I thought it would be best to get the procedure from here

Q2: When I move the files (not copying them) will this impact the emails online (Gmail and Yahoo)? I don't want to accidentally delete them from the server

Q3: I am concerned about the following scenario: I tell Thunderbird to use the external drive. Thunderbird starts to download emails to the external drive. What happens to the emails that are on the internal drive? does Thunderbird move them to the external drive? Or will I have to move them manually? Can I safely move email folders on top of folders of the same name without messing anything up? (I'm concerned that Thunderbird would not know that a previously downloaded folder exists and would start to download it in the new spot. So when I move the folders from the old spot to the new spot, it would overlay the new copy and I don't want that to mess anything up)

I hope my questions make sense. I'm not always clear about how I ask things

I just updated Thunderbird. So, I'm running the latest version. I'm using Windows 10 (old computer)

Thank you MistWing

The listing of my inbox and other mail folders changed so that the type face is smaller and the rows are further apart. I went to the controls that permit increasing and decreasing mail listing font sizes. It shows the font size to be 7. Pressing the increase and decrease buttons has no effect. Pressing the density buttons has some effect, but the rows are still too far apart.

I found the tip sheet that recognizes there can be a such a problem. I entered the suggested commands in the config editor. No button appeared to revert to the standard configuration for the text size and density.

Thank you for any help you can provide. HJB

I followed the instructions on the Mozilla help page but it has content which doesn't mesh with Thunderbird (latest version) such as there being no "mail groups" when going file > new > ???? I have done this successfully on Outlook and Safari, but no luck on Thunderbird.

Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone,

Ok here is my issue and I will try to explain as simple as possible.

I am was using cPanel to host my emails. Then Godaddy convinced me to use MS 365 for the hosting. I never really liked it and wanted to switch bak to cPanel.

Once the change was made TB kept looking tryingto Authentic the IMAP server but it could not do that. After trying to solve the problem I tried setting up a new account which I was able to do but my local folders would not move over to the new account. So I went back to my original account and changed the server details and now all of my local folders are missing inside of Thunderbird. I can see them in my profile folder and I know they are current but can't get them to populate in TB.

Can anyone help, please! This is my work email and I need to get these folders back.

THank you, Rick
