I run two calendars, but each has a different default reminder setting. The main setting, in Tools/Options/Calendar has the default setting off. This is the case when creating a new event in one calendar, but in the other, it has a default reminder of 30 minutes. I want the default setting turned off for both, but can't see how to isolate the settings. I am running latest release of Thunderbird 68.12 in Windows 10. Both calendars use the Google plug-in to synchronise with Google calendar on mobile devices.

I've used Thunderbird on my Desktop for years as POP and want to install it on my laptop so that I can work remotely and still send/receive emails and they will be on my Desktop when I return home. When I installed Thunderbird on my laptop today it automatically installed IMAP I was able to send emails but I was not able to receive them.... and I received errors messages that my server was not an IMAP3 server. So does this mean that I have to change to a POP or was I getting that message because the two versions were not the same?

Hi,

I love TB and was so happy to see 78 it is a perfect email app so that is clear. Thanks for it and all the efforts. First thing after update for me was to check if I can remove some of the drive me nuts keyboard shortcuts.

Why? They drive my nuts. Typically when I use search field - sometimes I miss-click, or the app was not active, and I start typing what I am looking for and guess what... threads go to junk or are red, archived...depending on the key I press. Even though I touch type still I am too fast :)

Any chance to give a freedom to change it so I can love it even more? There was an add-on but for older versions :( Maybe someone has solution.

Thanks, WH

Dear Mozilla,

  I use Thunderbird 78.2.2 (32-bit) on Windows 7 Ultimate.

I tried to take a backup and load it to a new pc. Unfortunately, I did not rename my profile through the profile manager but instead i renamed it through Windows. Ever since, Thunderbird cannot load and I cannot access neither my e-mails nor my local drives where I kept the majority of my e-mails.

  I tried to find something relevant on the forum, but nobody was that genius so far !

Is there any brave one to save the day?

Thank you in advance for your time and kindness to respond.

I have synched only the most recent 30 days messages under Synchronization & Storage. If I create any new message filter (particularly matching rule containing a word of the message body), TBird starts downloading messages aggressively regardless of its age. There have only been 500 messages in the past 30days. But it is downloading more than 30000 messages. Initially the profile folder was only 250MB, After enabling the filter it is gradually increasing. Now it is 2.5 GB.

In fact there is no any messages that match the filter rule. I created that filter for the messages to be received in the future. (For automatic tagging purpose).

How can I apply a filter only for the latest messages to be received but not on the older than the N days specified under Synchronization & Storage?

Hello, I'm an happy user of Thunderbird since years. I do manage several different professional and personal mail accounts, with several folders in each. Some are used very often, some rarely. The last email account that I've created is important, but it appears last in the list and is not visible. I would like it to be next my default mailbox. How is sorted the list of mail accounts in the leftmost column ? I've seen how to put the "default" one as the upper one, but how can I control the 2nd, third, etc. ? (I'm ready to edit some low-level configuration file, if needed)

Thanks a lot !

Hi there,

I hope that whoever reads this, is well !

I have an issue regarding mails that kept on getting auto read on a Thunderbird client of a user in our organisation.

I have checked in Thunderbird > Preferences > 'Display' > 'Advanced' tab' I have selected: 'Automatically mark messages as read' as well as also selected 'After displaying for 3 seconds', and then it seems to work fine while sending test mails, but soon thereafter, when the user starts receiving mails again, the messages just keep coming into the inbox as already have been read, I've tried reinstalling Thunderbird, which also did unfortunately not work.

Is there perhaps any other assistance that can be provided to me or some advice I can try and follow to try sort this out ?

Kind Regards - Jeshua

With the new update (78.2.2), I am running into intermittent issues with composing emails - as I'm writing, suddenly the letters stop appearing for a bit, my cursor moves as I'm typing, but I can't see it. Then it will come back and formatting is weird (as well as some typos as I couldn't see what I was typing!).

Have used Thunderbird for many years - this is a new one for me. Thoughts/suggestions?

I have found the instructions to move all of Thunderbird to my new computer, but all I really want is the address book. (I am keeping the old computer in case I need older emails for some reason.) The entire Thunderbird folder is 3.77 GB!

Can anyone instruct me on how to move the address book only? I can find some small files that I think might be address book(s), but not sure what I'm looking at. There's abook.mab, abook-1.mab and abook (2).mab. There are also impab.mab 1, 2, 3, and 4 files. Help!

Thank you.

I apologize if this has been addressed already, but I searched the articles and could not find this specific issue. When I send an email to some Gmail accounts, the entire message becomes double or even triple spaced between each line. I'm not aware that this is happening until the I get a reply email, and see the insane amount of spacing. This only happens to some Gmail recipients. Other Gmail accounts format the email just fine, as it was originally sent. See examples below. TIA for any help to remedy this issue!

Hello,

I'd like to have an option to mute/unmute chosen specific email boxes.

Use case: You have 10 mail boxes added to thinderbird and you are getting spammed on one of them. You would like to mute this one email box until you prevent the spam or resolve the issue sending you lot of emails.

Another use case: you are in meeting and would like to prevent only specific email boxes from showing you notifications, eg. personal box.

I believe people which use multiple email boxes will find this feature useful.

Hi, Thunderbird 78.3.0 crashes randomly when I use this version. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing happens. The symptoms are: - I have the application open, I am working with a different application and it closes randomly. - It has also been closed to me by opening some mail and even receiving it, randomly.

I have had to go back to the previous version (78.2.0) and everything works fine.

Note: Windows 10 Pro Update 2004. Profile in shared folder. Kaspersky Endpoint.

I just erased all my profile files, trashed the Application that was in my machine and installed a new one from scratch. It worked for a few hours but crashed again. Opening in Safe Mode gives the same result.
