Created several email mailing lists. Stored them in the Personal Address Book (PAB). I'm sorry, but Thunderbird doesn't seem to work like any other email client. How do I address an email using one of those mailing lists in the PAB. Tried typing the whole name of the mailing list in the To: field. Didn't work. I'm not entirely stupid but it doesn't make sense to me.

A few months ago

If I deleted an email or moved it to another folder - on my apple app for any of the accounts that I also have on thunderbird

The changes would sync seamlessly - a few seconds after I deleted or moved an email on my apple iPhone mail app - on my laptop - thunderbird would show the same changes.

The same worked the other way if I deleted or moved an email on thunderbird on my laptop - my iPhone would show the changes in seconds.

However now if I do the same on my iPhone The changes do not show up at all.

BUT if I do the changes on my laptop - they will show on my iPhone. It just doesn’t work if I do the changes on my iPhone.

Is there a reason for this?

I have moved Thunderbird from the new Microsoft Outlook and I am very happy with Thunderbird except for one thing.When sending an email I often get the error message:

"your message was sent but a copy was not placed in your sent folder (Sent) due to network or file access errors. You can retry or save the message locally to Local Folders/Sent-jemsym@aussiebb.com.au."

How can I correct this? I have checked the outgoing SMTP details and have changed a couple of things with AussieBroadband. the problem remains. Can you help?

First post. I was trying to target a Thunderbird forum but I get vectored to Mozilla which seems to be more focused on Firefox. Sorry if I'm in the wrong place.

First, it was my impression that a global Inbox could be POP accts only. But my global Inbox has a POP acct and an IMAP account. I'm not sure but this might have happened when I converted one of my POP accts to IMAP. Am I wrong about this theory? Going forward, I'm going to refer to this IMAP acct as the "bad" one.

As a result, my bad IMAP acct that appears in the global Inbox has no Inbox of its own under its account. What I'm looking to do is get the bad IMAP Inbox out of the global Inbox and back into its account in my sidebar.

There's nothing wrong with my e-mail but I want to keep it that way. I have another IMAP account (aka "good") and as a result of my situation, I have to look at the bad Inbox and the good Inbox of the two IMAP accounts in different ways in the interface and it annoys me.

I've looked at the account settings. The good IMAP acct has the personal namespace "INBOX." whereas the bad IMAP acct has the personal namespace "". I've tried changing the bad personal namespace to "INBOX." as well but I also have "allow server to override these namespaces" and it won't stick. I don't understand IMAP well enough to be confident about making more changes without getting advice.

Hope this isn't too confusing.
