Since upgrading to v78 from v68 I now have an envelope icon being displayed in the subject line of the preview pane.

It appears to change depending on whether the email is read or unread.

Is there a way to remove it?

Transfer various email files in a folder in ThunderBird to a bookmark folder on the same computer.

I started a project not to long ago. I received various emails trying to help out. Since I have 2 computers I would like to combine all the emails onto my primary laptop. Once this done, I would like to create a new file in the bookmark section and transfer everything into it. Copy and paste does not work and I do not often use links except when I create V lockups in Excel.

Can what I what to do be done??? Both computers are Windows 10. I really would like some input on this matter.

Thanks in advance,

Bruce

I am getting rid of this laptop, purging everything and selling it. There are certain Thunderbird email files I want to keep off on a DVD, but I can't find them except by opening Thunderbird. I know they are stored somewhere in this laptop, and I'd like to simply take them off as an open file. So my question is, what is the file extension I need to look for -- e.g., *.eml or what? Thanks in advance.

When clicking the button "Thunderbird" for opening the email-browser appears a massage-box containing this description: XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: Nicht definierte Entität Adresse: chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xhtml Zeile Nr. 1636, Spalte 9:

       <toolbarbutton id="appmenu_customize"
</pre>

^

After appearance of this message it is unpossible to close it as well as procede in opening the Thunderbird-email-browser. All trials to restart the process or even to restart the operating system lead to the similar result. A reinstallation of Thunderbird-software did not lead to any change. For I can not use the email-browser, what means neither receiving nor sending of emails I would like to ask for instruction and support.

Deleted messages used to stay in my Deleted or Deleted Messages folders until I manually deleted them. (I kept them for several months in case of late disputes with correspondents). However, they are now vanishing after a few days. Retention policy on each is 'Use my AC settings' and 'don't delete messages.' Any advice please?

I can't find a way to ask the Thunderbird community a question. This is my question.

I am running tbird 78.5.1 on my PC. There is an option to move mail. One of the options under that is to look at favorites. I want to learn how to put folders into that favorites list.

I know there is also an option for recent folders. That one autoconfigures and I know how to use it.

But I would like to designate favorites as well. Can someone please tell me how to do that?
