A few versions of Thunderbird back, I could easily change the order of Local Folders by pressing down with the left mouse button and sliding the folder to the desired positions.

Now I can no longer do this.

Re-ordering local folders alphabetically would be helpful too.

Suggestions, please.

Messages with the different subject are grouped in one thread

The subject line for one was " Fw: Important Document(s) from Store's" & "Signing complete: 123 Main ST Residential Lease Contract & Pet Ag". One email came from a store email. The other came from docusign.

The only thing they did have in common was that inside the message from Store it mentions "Main St.", but not the full address.

I tried to move one email to another folder, and both emails get moved. My end result is that I need to put the store email under my "VENDORS File", and the other under "SIGNED CONTRACTS File"

Also, I keep missing emails because it keeps putting them in weird threads like this.

I have set "mail.thread_without_re" to false already. I just need to file emails to correct file.

Please & thank you for your help!

The use of a separate filter set for each Thunderbird account can be a major pain for some users. I have 32 email accounts (some of them disposable) in a number of domains for a large number of purposes. Sometimes several accounts need the same filter, so when I add a filter I add it to the dominant account, and then have to copy that filter set to the other 31 accounts. I suggest adding an option that would use the same filter set (the one for the dominant account makes the most sense) to be used for every account, eliminating the need to copy filters.

I have searched the help to increase the size of the opening page fonts in - email subjects and account names. I am using the most recent update of Thunderbird. Per what I saw in the help I went to layouts.css.devPixelsPerPx and changed -1.0 to 1.2. Closed the config editor and returned to email - no change. I shut down Thunderbird and opened it again - still no change in the font size. I reset the setting in Config Editor and tried 1.25 - still no change. Tried -1.25 still no change. Each time when I go back to this setting in config editor - the number has been changed - but does nothing to change the font.

None of the font settings in Preferences have any effect on the opening page of Thunderbird.

I have some visual impairment and need these fonts larger. There has to be a way to do it. At one time these fonts were larger. There must be a way to change these - and why it is not easily built in to Preferences is terrible - and makes Thunderbird useless to those with minor visually impairment.

I need help in resolving this - there has to be a way.

I have read all the "solutions" to the above issue however the "solution" popups do not appear on my screen. For example, from the address, I can select multiple addresses in which to send emails. However when I select "Write", it puts them automatically into the "To" box. I want them in the "Bcc" box. I see where you can move them from the To to the Bcc but it won't let you select ALL of them, you have to move each one, one at a time.... ARRGGG. Why can't this simple issue be resolved? This was no problem with Windows Live Mail. One "solution" says I can select the contacts from my "address side bar" next to the email..... I have NO sidebar.

Recently, and not for the first time, Thunderbird sent an automatic reply which thankfully bounced. However I couldn't find the offending email when searching for this address. Using a third party tool, namely Agent Ransack aka FileLocator Lite, I found the folder and hence the email.

How can I do this within Thunderbird. I can only select To, From, Cc and/or Bcc. Not Reply-To.

Can anyone let me know if this is possible, if so how?

I am trying to add a new gmail account to Thunderbird but when I enter my address and password, a pop up appears in which I need to enter mail address at google. I do this, but it seems to just re-prompt me.


I have attached images of the steps taken to try to add the gmail account:

tb1.png: I enter name, address, password. tb2.png: TB validates this and adds some server info. tb3.png: a popup opens and my address is pre entered. I click the blue button. tb4.png: I am reprompted for my email address. I can enter my address again and again and click blue button but I am re prompted every time. Seems impossible to proceed from here.


If I can open this pop URL in a proper browser to inspect what is going wrong, I could probably fix this issue. However, TB will not let me copy the URL from the address bar which is frankly user hostile behavior :(

I have tried doing this on several different internet connections as well as tried disabling pihole, etc. So that does not seem to be the cause.

I cannot sent email to one specific recipient. I have two accounts, one through gmail and one through AT&T. When I try and sent an email to this one recipient from either account, the File/Send Now function is grayed out. Ctrl-Enter does not work either. This is the only recipient I cannot send mail to. I've sent test email to several other recipients with no problem. Obviously, I'm not getting any kind of 'email blocked' type of message, since nothing is being sent out.

My Thunderbird version is 91.9.0 (32-bit)

Any ideas why this is happening?

TIA for any help.

I have recently moved from Outlook to Thunderbird as Outlook developed a problem communicating with my Virgin Media email accounts. I am slowly finding my way around Thunderbird, but am experiencing a problem with some of my sub folders. This only applies to Virgin Media accounts.

I have looked at previous questions on a similar topic and have tried the simpler solutions (the ones applying to advanced users are Greek to me)! Unfortunately, they haven't solved my problem.

If I go to account settings and uncheck the "show only subscribed folders" box, the greyed out sub folder disappear. However, right-clicking on the folder heading and selecting subscribe and attempting to subscribe to the folders there, doesn't work.

Is there a simple process I can go through to access these sub folders?

In the email client I have just come from the Unread folder contains all unread messages irrespective of the folder they might be in. The Unread filter in Thunderbird appears to relate only to the highlighted folder. I have many folders, the list being long not all are visible on the 'home' view. This means that messages in folders far down the list are only visible if I scroll down looking for them. Is there a way to modify the Unread filter to ensure that all folders are searched for unread messages and displayed together? I am using TB 91.8.1.
