Have used Thunderbird for 10+ years, as interface to Gmail. Lovely product. 3 days ago I had to reinstall a station but when Thunderbird does its updating after reconnecting to gmail address for the 10GB of emails, it behaves damn irregular: - periodic freezes of mouse and keyboard, for about 0.3 seconds every 3 to 5 seconds. - Thunderbird message says downloading email number out of total number of emails (very slowly advancing) but every 3 seconds it starts downloading email 1 of those emails - station has cumulated some 20 hours working, most of these left to finish syncronizing. Usually in 2 - 3 hours there is time enough.

This happens only when Thunderbird runs, when I close it the station runs fine. Same hardware on the station as before..

Did you encounter this? Thanks.

I am using Thunderbird to connect to a personal POP & SMTP server. I have recently migrated to a new desktop and moved the old profile folder to the new computer (so I would keep all the emails). Everything was transferred successfully, including the profile settings.

When I open Thunderbird, I am asked for my password and it all goes well if I enter it manually. If I check the "Use Password Manager to remember this password" box, I am met with a "User to server X with username and password failed" - error and a "Sending of password for user did not succeed" - error. I am entering the exact same password in both cases, yet it only fails when I try to save it.

Hi,

I have been configured my Gmail account in Mozilla thunderbird client version 115.12.0 in Windows 11 system. Have been receiving an error message frequently as below "Unable to write email to the mailbox. Make sure the file system allows you write Privileges, and you have enough disk space to copy the mailbox."

System has enough space and memory and please advise.

I see a preview of new emails that fades after a minute or so. I just saw such a preview, it faded, but when I opened Thunderbird, there is no new email in inbox.

How can I find it?

Also, is there a way to change frequency of retrieving new emails? To create an account for this, I had to get a 6 digit code...it took 4 minutes to appear.

On startup TB pops an error box up saying ' There is no email program associated to perform this action'. When dismissed TB continues to open normally. No other errors seen during operation.

I have checked my Win 10 Control Panel Apps options. TB is the email default. MailTo, file type .eml and all other settings I can see are set to TB as well.

On Linux, closing Thunderbird also closes Firefox if Firefox was initially opened via clicking a link in Thunderbird. I don't know if this would qualify as a bug, but is there a way to have the Firefox process start independent of Thunderbird when, for example, clicking a link in an email? I'm running 115.12.0 (64-bit) at the moment, but it happens on previous versions as well.

I read through the previous discussion on this issue since I am suffering from the same issue of links not working as expected. I regularly need to forward messages which include links and none of the suggestions mentioned worked for me, and I do not recall this being a problem in the past.

I currently run Thunderbird 115.11.0 on Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon & have been using Thunderbird as my primary Email package for many years across multiple computers.

The work around is to to copy any email that is to be forwarded to the Drafts folder. Links are preserved and the message can then be edited as required and sent complete with the embedded links.

Hope this helps others who have the same problem.

Thunderbird has suddenly stopped pulling in email, please help. It just says 'Checking mail server capabilities'. I have changed no settings at all. Webmail works. Email on my phone works. So it's not the ISP or the server or anything like that. It's just on Thunderbird where I can't do anything, but I've not changed anything so I don't understand.

When I try to send email it fails and says: Sending of the message failed. Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate. The configuration related to mail.mandyhaggith.net must be corrected.

So please can you tell me how to correct the configuration?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Best wishes Mandy

Hi,

I am running Thunderbird 115.10.1 (Flatpak) on Ubuntu 20.04. (no extensions except birdtray) I have 4 email addresses added to my TB, and I like to see all of them together, therefore I am using Unified Folders. When I am accessing Unified Inbox, TB is very slow and basically frozen until it loads this folder (often a pop-up appears that 'TB is not responding'). it takes between 30-60 seconds to load my emails (either on start-up, or clicking on another folder, then going back to Unified Inbox). Every other folders open almost instantly. I have to admit I have a lot of emails in the Unified Inbox (~20K), however the inbox of my main email has 18K, and accessing that folder separately is instant. So any operation, other than opening Unified Inbox, is quite snappy.

This issue persists since I upgraded to v115, even when I did an OS reinstall (also tried installing apt (v115.11.0)).

I have seen this answer: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1428374#question-reply however, nothing changed by resetting the folder.

Email access slow

Is Microsoft Windows 11 sabotaging thunderbird email by slowing it down? I have had problems accessing my email ever since I got a new HP laptop with Windows 11.
