Using Thunderbird V102.3 When attempting to open a previously saved message, Thunderbird generates an enormous number of tabs, each with its own message, which makes using the application a PITA.

I attached 2 images. One image shows a highlighted Sent message (Subject: Tribe of David - September Newsletter Reminder), which I will attempt to open.

The other image image shows the result of attempting to open the Sent message (Subject: Tribe of David - September Newsletter Reminder). The result is that a crazy slew of tabs, each with its own message, are generated

Help!

Hi!

I am having a problem getting my email using:

   Thunderbird version 102.0.3

I started having problems suddenly while using

   Thunderbird version 102.0.2

What I mean is that Monday evening I logged on and the email worked well. During the night I suddenly started getting the error message of:

  The server does not support the selected authentication
  method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the
  'Account Settings | Server settings'.

when I checked my mail.

I know that I am doing something basically wrong but I cannot see what that is. I looked on the web and the settings below should work for "aol.com" under Thunderbird.

Thunderbird settings

  Server name: pop.aol.com
  Port: 995
  Connection security: SSL/TLS
  Authentication method: OAuth2

I updated Thunderbird from 102.0.2 to 102.0.3 and the problem persisted.

Any help would be appreciated.

I prefer to use S/MIME to digitally sign my email messages. Prior to Thunderbird 102.3.1, using S/MIME to digitally sign my messages was the default.

Now, for every single email I send, when I click "Send" I get the dialog box "OpenPGP Alert - Cannot digitally sign this message, because you haven’t yet configured end-to-end encryption for <email address>". I have to then select "S/MIME" from the encryption/signature menu.

It's a pain to have to remember to do this for every email I send.

I checked my account settings. "Do not use OpenPGP for this identity" is checked. The correct S/MIME certificate is selected.

How do I set the default signature method to be S/MIME instead of OpenPGP in this new version of Thunderbird?

I'm running Thunderbird 102.3.1 on Mac OS 10.14 Mojave. The Enigmail plugin is disabled. I have an OpenPGP key that I created 20 years ago on my system, and Thunderbird recognizes its presence, but I do not use it.

I'm trying to import my .pst file from Outlook 2007 into Thunderbird v102.3.1 following the procedure outlined in the help area but it fails with "No profile found" - see attached screenshot. I suspect that Thunderbird is expecting to find the .pst file in a location different to where it's stored. Where is it expecting to find it?

Or if that's not the reason any suggestion to fix the problem would be appreciated.

Hi, I have 20 or so email accounts configured and until recently they all used a single SMTP server without any problems. Recently, all but 1 stopped working and it seems they now each need a separate SMTP server setting up - that got everything working again. However, whenever I restart Thunderbird/reboot, all but 1 of the smtp server server setting are lost (only the default 1 remaining). Am I missing some way to save the settings or something please?

Hi. Thunderbird is not showing all of my folders, there are about 40 missing. The option for ALL is checked in Folders. I used to have access to these folders but now they are gone. I use SKY as my email provider which is linked to Yahoo. All my folders are visible when I use Windows Mail. I have used Thunderbird for at least 10 years and do not want to move away if possible. Could the fact that Thunderbird is not supported by Yahoo be the problem? The IMAP & SMTP settings are correct as I do not have any problems receiving or sending emails. The folders do exist on the Yahoo mail site. I am using Windows 11.

I would be grateful for any help or guidance.

My laptop updated (I sure can't call it an upgrade) to version 102 and I wish it didn't. I actually got burnt once before from a Thunderbird update and it took me months to manually fix. I seriously thought of leaving Thunderbird as an email client at that time but I figured turning off the automatic updates would at least keep the program working and I wouldn't get burnt again. Well, I was wrong. The update to version 102 has been a disaster to my address book and the automatic searching in the TO/CC/BCC fields. Here are some details:

The current issue from an update to version 102 is the address book.

I used to be able to type in a name in the email TO/CC/BCC and get the person or list I wanted. Now the TO/CC/BCC automatic search DOES NOT FIND ANY lists I have created for ease of use. When I type in a name in the TO/CC/BCC field, sometimes no suggested names show up, and when a name is found it is not the primary email address, it's the secondary email address or an email address that I haven't used for years (I don't even know where this address came from because I removed them from the address book). Strangely the current email address doesn't even show up in the search.

Going into the Address book app is even worse. I can't search some names shown on the screen below! NO lists can be found in any search and the mailboxes on the left don't appear to have all of the email names I have had before and there are doubles and triples of some email addresses that appear to be the same in the details of the person.

I have been working on this problem for a week now and have been searching on the web for help. I have found a lot of similar issues but can't find hardly anything on version 102, other than people asking how to downgrade.

Downgrade sounds like a great idea but it doesn't look like something that is easy to do and if I have to put that much effort or risk into a downgrade I might as well take the time to move to another free email program.

Please help me fix this address book/lookup issue!!! I have used Thunderbird for years and years and I really liked the ease of use in the past. In fact, I have installed Thunderbird on quite a few other computers and suggested they donate to Thunderbird to keep development going.

Since the "upgrade" the ability to add and delete names from mailing lists in the address book seemingly has vanished. Please tell me how to do it, or if it can't be done, please bring back this functionality. I am using a PC and Windows 10. Separate issue: the program constantly freezes and takes forever to open. I've used Thunderbird for many years and always loved it. Still using it for now, but it's wasting a lot of my time waiting for the program to respond. Thank you in advance for your help.

Migrated all of my email identities from older Windows 10 computer (Toshiba Satellite) to newer and faster computer (iMac with Bootcamp set to boot Windows 10). I had problem before with download speed (had to click Get Messages and wait through very long display of "Checking Inbox for new messages" several times, with the message disappearing without downloading any messages (which my iPhone, using native iOS Mail, had already received an hour or two ago), then downloading began, eventually ending with "xxx messages downloaded," but still behind the iPhone's inbox. The idea of migrating was to make it work faster, but this new computer seems to be even slower. In addition, when I click Get Messages "too soon," whatever that means, I get an error message titled "Error with account xxxx," with the text "The account xxxx is being processed. Please wait until processing is complete to get messages." But there is never any alert to tell me when the "processing" completes; I just have to wait a while and keep trying.

I do have a very large inbox, and also a number of messages (but there is no way to count them) open in tabs. I need to prune both, but I need decent response in order to do that (and I have to keep up with new messages at the same time). Any idea what I can do to get rid of this message and speed things up?

(My email is in att.net, meaning it is managed by Yahoo! The iPhone, naturally, uses the IMAP server, while Thunderbird on Windows uses POP3.)

I keep getting an error message (see uploaded image) that says Thunderbird can't update to the latest version and to download it manually. When I look at the About for Thunderbird, it says it already is the latest version (see uploaded image). So, I ignored that error message the first few times, but when it kept appearing, I downloaded and installed the update (after backing up the Profile folder in case of mishap; see uploaded image). It said it was installing and then the Install box disappeared (it did NOT say "You already have this version" and stop installing); I assumed it had finished (although, it never asked me to do anything, even though the error message implied I'd need help, and I couldn't see any difference in Thunderbird after it finished). Today, I got the error message AGAIN (even though I updated yesterday). What does it want me to do? Is it updated, or not? I'm confused.
