OSX Ventura 13.1, 102.9.0 (64-bit), Gmail imap, when Tbird applies filter to move message a strikethrough copy remains in inbox. A non strikethrough copy is in allmail. When I try to delete the ST copy in inbox it just removes the ST and the message remains. The left click menu delete works. None of these actions have any effect on the moved message. Messages are moved to Local Folders. When I select an unread message in the inbox it immediately changes to ST status. No messages have ST in Allmail. I tried to set the delete action to move messages to a "New trash" folder and most of the inbox vanished. The "Inbox" appears to be worthless and undependable. All I am trying to do is to have my filters work like they used to when I was using POP3. My wife's windoze machine is now having similar issues.

Thunderbird’s connection to one of my gmail accounts failed today.

I removed the account and then tried to add it again to Thunderbird.

When logging in using a Google generated App password, I receive the following message:

"400. That’s an error. The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know."

OAuth2 is in place, and I’ve carried out all other recommended checks I can find on your website. My other Gmail accounts are working fine.

Please can you help? Many thanks.

Hi

I have a thunderbird with 3 google accounts and 2 ovh accounts Since today I'm annoyed with my google (no problem with ovh) accounts that ask me for my password every time I try to search new messages.

I confirm the password, I confirm on my phone that "it's me", I confirm that I validated, it seems to work but

- it does not retrieve my new emails
- it asks me again for the password the next time

I am in POP port 995 and SSL/TLS / OAuth2 I tried to delete the saved passwords, to disable the firewall I'm out of ideas...

Thanks in advance for your help

I sent an email with multiple BCCs and no CCs or TOs, I put myself as one of the BCCs.

I did not receive it and I do not think anybody else did as well since I asked a few people.

The email is in the sent folder. I tried forwarding the email from my sent folder to myself as CC, and that worked. I also tried fowarding as BCC, and that worked.

So what is going on? Is BCC working? How can I know for certain? Do I need to foward the email as BCCs to all my BCCs to get this to work?

Thanks for your help.

I desperately (sobbing here) need someone to hold my hand and walk me through this!!! I uninstalled the newest version (115) and installed the previous version (102) because of an outgoing mail problem. It gave me a warning that the newer version changed my profiles and it's not compatible so I downloaded the new version again. The import screen doesn't look anything like what it says in the help files. I don't have an option for importing from a previous version.

Please rescue me. I run a nonprofit and I have deadlines and meetings next week that I was supposed to make arrangements for and I've been dealing with this for almost a week.

I have been using Thunderbird for years to access several @charter.net email addresses, lately administrated at Spectrum, which took over Charter. Everything was working normally until today. I can still receive emails, but when I send, I get an error message asking for a password: "password required for outgoing SMPT server" Manually entering a password in that error message box doesn't help. Spectrum support is not helpful beyond confirming that my email sends and receives normally as long as I access it on their website. Three clues: 1) Spectrum recently announced "new and improved" email. 2) One customer service person described my email addresses as "legacy". 3) My gmail address sends and receives just fine from Thunderbird as usual. Any insights appreciated! Thanks!

In version 102.10.1 I can change the font size of the various Thunderbird panes independently. I've used the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx variable in the Config Editor to get the menu, folder index, headings, and other fixed parts of the UI to a reasonable size, but the message pane, reply quote, and other parts of the displayed text are way too large. I've tried to use the font size controls in Settings to adjust them, but with little luck.

So, what I would like to see is a concise table showing each font size parameter and exactly which panes and text it applies to. Or, I would like to see written instructions for making the font size the same for all text appearing in Thunderbird, anywhere in Thunderbird.

Or any other answer that is equivalent to these to help me achieve the same font size throughout Thunderbird.

Note: while I can see that some text is too large, I have not verified that a recipient would see text that is too large, since I'm not certain how to test for this, or how to text for both plain text and formatted text. I prefer to send plain text and receive formatted text, if that is relevant.

I had to leave Thunderbird because every time I try and create a customized signature, as much as Thunderbird excels in that area, the image storage drops the filename's path every time.

Example:

image loaded: http://rich.allcorn.us/files/headshot.png

when I go back to it: headshot.jpg


It forgets the path, so the file doesn't show up in the eMail. I purposefully put it "on the web" so it could be accessed from anywhere!

When is Thunderbird going to fix this so I can leave Apple's mail program and go back to Thunderbird?

In a world where respondent's often draft messages about a new subject by lazily replying to messages on an old subject, does anyone find Threading helpful? Why is it now the default.

After View/Sort by/Unthreaded then propagating that by "apply current view to all folders." All folders do in fact sort by unthreaded. But if I create a new subfolder it defaults to sort by threaded. Please, is there anyway to entirely disable Threading?

Hi,

TB 91.5.0 on Windows 10 (with profile folder excluded from virus scan)

The latest update to seems to have resurrected a problem with saving copies of sent emails. Sending works fine, but copying of the sent email to the sent folder causes the send dialog to hang. Disabling the "Place a copy in:" option in account settings eliminates the problem. Using the "Other" option to place it in a local folder works *that is not part of a unified folder* works OK.

I have tried repairing folders and deleting the sent files inside "smart folders" in the profile, with no luck.

I'd like to suppress displaying message Subject in the folder contents pane. (I'm in vertical view and would like the message contents pane to be wider. To accomplish that I'm willing to sacrifice listing the Subject in the folder contents pane. Tbird doesn't list that as a column I can select or deselect. Any ideas?

The real goal is to make the folder contents pane narrower. But it seems to not allow me to make it any narower than it is. A9(I can widen it, but that doesn't help. Is there any any to change the minimum width Thunderbird has set for that pane?

Copy the text given below and paste it into the Console.

If using version 78 or later, copy and paste the following text: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xhtml"

Click the Evaluate button.

If you do not see an 'Evaluate' button, press Return or Enter on your keyboard.

When prompted with the confirmation dialog box, click the Reset button.

The problem is that I don't see an "EVALUATE" button

This after I upgraded to the latest version of Thunderbird.
