I just migrated to Thunderbird 78.3.1. I also just migrated to macOS Catalina 10.15.7. When Thunderbird is active, and I pull down the Thunderbird menu, and click on one of the items (for example, About Thunderbird), nothing happens. The other pull-down menus (such as File) seem to be working fine.

Thunderbird fails to recognize new 2nd AOL email account password

I finally decided to get work on using Thunderbird. I have Linux Mint 20 mate edition, everything updated every day.

I first added my "netscape.net" AOL account to Thunderbird, This was properly detected as a is a "imap.aol.com" server using OAuth2 authentication. Every one of my 6K messages downloaded here no problem. Happy. looked good.

Then tried the same with another AOL account. This one is a Verizon.net account, I'm one of the millions forced to migrate to AOL. Though that process worked transparently, it's a "pop.verizon.net" server and uses "normal Password". I have no reason to think it was not auto-detected properly. The first error message is: "Error getting mail password". then "[SYS/TEMP] Server error -Sending of password for user p.holmzie did not succeed". and Then "Login to server pop.verizon.net with username p.holmzie failed"

Though I usually figure things out, I am truly stumped. I continue to use the same "Verizon.net" account directly, so I know I am using the correct password. I realize it may be a different portal, but I don't buy it. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advanced for your kind attention! holmzie

I have 68.6.0 on my Mac and could not update because there was a problem in the software on the following versions that did not allow and update on Mac's.

If I down load 78.3.2 how do I get all of my emails, folders and address book on this version from my existing version?

I have tried down loading it but the set-up is terrible and convoluted. I have tried keeping my profile and inserting that, but compared to earlier versions of Thundebird the set up is completely unintuitive and what ever you click on does nothing.

In years gone by, you simply removed the new profile and inserted the old one in Finder>Go>Library>Thunderbird> Profile and everything was there. Now it's a mess.

Today I moved from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 20.04, in part on the back of assurance got from reading this recentish thread on saving old mail data when on Windows and later re-activating it once Ubuntu was installed:

https://superuser.com/questions/1550634/moving-thunderbird-email-setup-from-win10-to-linux-ubuntu

Trouble is, I cannot ¨see" any sign of the old mail folders and mail accounts after following the above procedure. Of course, I can re-create the existing mail accounts and start with empty mailboxes - but I don want to lose all my emails since 2006.

I tried searching through your forums archives for advice on this migration - which must be common with developers who need a Linux distro on their work machine - but found nothing so far.

Any suggestions welcome.

Hallo,

ich schicke gleich voraus, ich bin was PC betrifft relativ unbedarft. Ich habe eine Linux Cinnamon ;Vers. 2.2.10, mit Thunderbird auf einem Laptop und möchte Thunterbird auf einen zweiten Laptop mit Win 10 Home kopieren.

Ich habe die gleiche Thunderbird-Version,60.6.1, auf Win 10 heruntergeladen. Komme aber nicht mehr weiter. Spätestens bei den Profileinträgen im Explorer endet es.

Wie bekomme ich Thunderbird nach Win 10?

Danke. Micha

Hi All, With TBD 68.12.1 (32-bit) I experienced problems syncing google contacts - especially groups. As Addons I used gContactSync and Provider for Google Calendar.

I wasn't aware that with TBD 78.4.0 (32-bit) there are no Addons that would sync Google contacts and calendar entries. Currently, I see still all my mails accounts and all the mails and the contacts. But syncing contacts with Google does not work anymore nor do I see my calendar entries.

Now, I decided to re-install TBD 68.12.1 (32-bit), but the procedure I found did not work - I was asked for a new profile, which to my understanding would include setting up all my mails accounts from scratch.

Can anyone help me to get back to TBD 68.12.1 (32-bit) without loosing my data?

Thanks! Martin

The Thunderbird in use did not have the possibility to leave the mails on the server. By reinstalling the same problem remained. So I did delete Thunderbird and all the files I could find by hand. I hoped to solve the problem, but now I cannot install Thunderbird, because the install program is corrupt. It says 'extraction failed. file is corrupt.' I think I did something wrong, but what to do? There are a few files I cannot open and there are 4 shortcuts which I cannot delete. W10 don't give me acces or refuses to obey my orders..
