[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310849. Please follow up there, thanks.]

I followed the steps backup the Thunderbird profile and copy to the new computer. When started the Thunderbird, it requested me to login with my existing email, then only a small portion of emails in In Box showed, all subfolders disappeared. Can someone help?

I have used Thunderbird for many years until a few days ago it stopped working. I phoned BT as I thought the broadband line might have failed but it proved to be Thunderbird. The BT engineer tried to help me over the phone but we were unable to solve the problem and he then helped me install Microsoft Mail which I do not like. Then a couple of days later a computer expert tried to install Thunderbird without success and left me with yet another mail system which is even worse. I would greatly appreciate your help and would be happy to pay a regular fee for Thunderbird as its very much an old friend! Kind regards David Sims

Embarqs' (now centurylink) mail website has an empty check-box beside each message to make it easier to sort and delete multiple messages at once, instead of moving or deleting them one at a time. Does thunderbird have the same, or a similar option, if so, how can I activate, or display it?

Thanks, Tom S.

In my old Outlook Express I could right-click on an unknown sender in the Inbox and click "Propertiies" which contained information on the sender, message origin and routing to help screen unwanted or phishing emails before I opened it. As far as I can tell Thunderbird (v.24.30) does not have this useful feature.

I gather these system folders I'm referring to may be called local folders. For example, "Inbox." Particularly I am wanting to delete "Sent" folders. I have many gmail accounts and in Thunderbird, some act differently than others. Each gmail account populates a "[Gmail]" folder with many subfolders consistently. I assume these are remote folders on gmail's server. I can delete any of those, but don't want to do so. Some of my Gmail accounts in addition to having the obligatory "Inbox" folder have a "Sent" folder with no right-click options to delete and some do not have the "Sent" folder showing at all. I don't want the "Sent" folder to show on all of them since it is already featured in my "[Gmail]" subfolders. I simply don't need ready access to the system "Sent" folder and don't want to look at it. How do I get rid of it?

A few days ago when I used Thunderbird in sending e-mail messages as I would place an attachment it would just stay as an attachment and there was not change to what I had entered in the body of the message.

Now when I make an attachment to an e-mail message, the attachment holds with the message, but also becomes part of the body of the message. i.e. form or picture now showing in full in body of e-mail message.

I want to know how to change Thunderbird back so the attachments just stay attachments only.

Thanks.

I send messages that require a response to be sent to the entire Cc. list. If the message fails to reach the primary target addressee (cause unknown, and nothing to do with Mozilla TB) I still have a copy and can of course Fwd it. But then the Reply All facility doesn't work for my correspondent receiving the forwarded copy. In MS Outlook it is possible to re-send a message in exactly the same condition as the original. Why not in Thunderbird? Or am I missing something?
