Hello,

I am looking to automatically reply to someone's email with a pre-fabricated response when the person emails me. Are there any extensions or methods of doing this?

It is similar to a vacation/away message but it will only go to 1-2 specific people.

Thanks!

I just changed my account from POP3 to IMAP. All is well except the mail marked as Junk remains in my Inbox. I've checked all my junk mail settings, and they all seem to be set correctly, and as they have always been. They appear with the Junk Icon lit orange, an "x" in a red circle, and are lined out, but they won't move to the Junk folder, even after running Junk Mail Controls. Any help?

Hi,

I have set up a filter in Thunderbird to delete emails when 'from' contains certain words. I have told it to apply the filter when "getting new mail" and "before junk classification" and also "periodically, every 10 minutes". However, an email was delivered to junk that met the filter criteria and it hasn't been deleted.

Please see attached image.

What am I doing wrong?

Many Thanks, Paul Lucas

there is a change in the announcement of new incoming emails. Back in the days when a new email arrived there was one and only one announcement for this new email. That was OK. I did not change anything in the configuration of Thunderbird. Now in version 78.8.1 when a new email arrives, an announcement is made every minute until you've read the specific email! This is driving me crazy and I cant find a way to change it. Please help somebody!

Dear Thunderbird Team, I have the thunderbird version 7.8.1 64 bit down loaded a couple of days ago.' I cannot find the LAYOUT' tab under OPTIONS under MENU. On close scrutiny I found the view pane in CLASSIC VIEW by pulling the bottom line of message list up. This was the default setting.

All web sites and your support site says to change it to classic/wide/vertical using - OPTIONS > LAYOUT> classis/vertical/wide VIEWS. But, unfortunately I cannot see and tab named LAY OUT.

I want to change to other options like VERTICAL/WIDE view, as shown in the picture below.

I will be most obliged if you could please let me know how to do this.

Hi Forum Folke,

Is anyone aware of a decent contact manager that treats contacts like a file manager treats files; that is, with a heirarchy and tree-structure like any file manager, where you can name the directories? I'm running 78.7.1.

The built-in and the add-ons I've been able to find have some peculiar ideas as to how to handle contacts. I don't see why they can't be treated like any other file, where the user creates directories that suit him/her, and then populates those directories with the contacts of their choice... like handling normal files.

The "as-is" structure is "All Address Books" as the "root" directory, with "Personal Address Book" and "Collected Addresses" as 'subdirectories' off of the root "All Address Books." It will not allow me to create another address book off of the root; it insists that it depend from either "Personal" or "Collected." So then, if I create it off of "Personal," and then try to move some contacts from "Personal" to the new address book... it won't allow that, either. So what's the point of creating another directory at all?

It seems to me to be a truly bizarre way of managing contacts, nothing in the least intuitive about it. I've tried "CareBook Tab," but it doesn't do what I need, either... I end up with a lot of duplicates, manage to get the duplicates down to two... and when I try to delete one of those two, they *both* go away. Nonsensical. I might as well just dump everything into one big pile and forget about it, as it stands now. Like in the old DOS days where people would just pile everything into the 'root' directory. Not a good idea!

Alternatively, is there somewhere I can go to learn HOW TBird handles contacts, why it's set up the way it is, so maybe I can better utilize it?

Thanks in advance!!
