Hi Not sure if this is the right place to ask. I am using Thunderbird for my email program I have it pinned to the taskbar at the bottom of my computer screen. I was wondering if there is a way that when I have the mail screen open and I open another screen like Settings, or Account Settings, if they can be shown separately on the task bar, and not combing so only the tab I have open is showing. That way I can flip between each one a lot easier than clicking on the one showing and then having to select the next tab in the actual program itself. Thanks Marc

I am running Thunderbird 115.7.0 (32-bit) on a Windows 11 Home Dell laptop. Whenever I go to make a change in the settings or the account list, it does not save the next time I log in. 2 examples. I change the top of the message window menu from "Icons besides text" to "Icons Only", but if I close Thunderbird and come back in, the menu bar is back to "Icons besides text". This is annoying but bearable.

But recently, I tried to add another email/gmail account. I can add it without a problem, see my inbox, receive and send messages, etc. But again, when I exit the Thunderbird application and re-enter, the new account is gone and I have to add it again. Somewhere, a config file is not updating, but I don't know where. Any ideas? This is more of a "well, I guess I need to look for another mail client" problem.

Thanks, Chris

Mozilla Thunderbird, personal storage (inbox, ourbox) 100% occupied, extension needed

Hi everybody,

this will be my 3rd attempt to illustrate a problem due to Thunderbird (see also ticket 124176, 12-23-2023 and resubmission: ticket 125893, 01-02-2024).

On 01-04-2024 I again got the message to resubmit my question by going to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/thunderbird/form and entering my Mozilla account information, what literally happens now.

My problem with Mozilla Thunderbird occured after I transfered the account of my wife (katharina@dr-ristic.de) to my pc in order to chance the related password as all the others of my accounts.

By doing so I suddenly found my personal folder (including inbox- and outbox-folder) shifted from my primary ac-count (thomas@dr-ristic.de) and attached to my wife’s account (katharina@dr-ristic.de).

Up to now it was possible to shift back nearly 80% of these folders until I got the message: OVERQUOTA and that any adding of datas would exceed my storage quota (2147559282>2147483648), as well the storage is occupid 100% (2,0 GB).

I would appreciate if you could help me to solve this problem by extending the storage for example, so my personal folder will functioning as it did up to now. I do not want to delete any of my datas in the folders.

I am looking forward to your problem solving advices and wish you all the best Thomas

For a long time, I've used the inbox to also receive the outgoing messages, in order to assist with threading of messages that end up creating a thread with multiple messages, but I am finding an issue going forward with the newer version, which is that a stand alone sent message shows my sending mail address, and the subject, which makes it hard to identify who the message was sent to in the list of messages, particularly if the same message is sent to several recipients, but not using the facility to have multiple addresses in the send header, which usually is because there are different attachments sent to different recipients.

I do this by using BCC to my own address, and this does two things, it gives me a confirmation that the ISP mail server was able to process the message, and it helps with managing threads that can become lengthy

I have been looking for a way to edit the order of the fields in the header pane, but can't find a way to do it, so that I could put the recipient mail above the sender mail, but even if I could do that, I can't be sure if the display of the data would then give me the recipient in a visble format.

Is there a way round this, or will it require changes to the package to make it possible?

Thanks

Steve

Hello. As I see from other discussions topics, threaded folders are NOT popular. PLEASE can you offer an option, across the whole of Thunderbird, for NOT having emails threaded. Thuis INCLUDES, when using the Search features, where the reults appear as threaded, which is counter intuitive when searching for one particular message.

I use Thunderbird in full screen mode on a high resolution monitor. I keep overlooking attachments because the tiny paperclip and the tiny link to the attachment at the bottom of the screen are too easy to miss. A more obvious visual cue is needed. Perhaps display the paperclip in a contrasting color and move the attachment link to just below the message header instead of putting it at the very bottom of the screen so far from the message body? Up to now this was just an inconvenience, but today it actually cost me $50 because of an attached notice I missed even though I had read the email several times.

Hi there!

How can I see the full mail adress in my list of received emails (instead of just a name)? It's kind of a security issue, since everybody can just pick any name. My friend Robert can send me a mail showing his name is PayPal. It's an open door to scammers and deception!

It seems like there were add-ons in the past "Show Adress Only" or "Full Adress Column" but they're not supported by new Thunderbird versions.

How come an add-on is needed to show such a simple and already received information? There are so many things that can be displayed but this important one seems missing. I would feel much better if I could see the real mail adress for any mail received without having to click on it. Thunderbird would feel more professional.

Are there any other supported add-ons to enable it? Why doesn't Mozilla add this function?

Best regards
