I am unable to send out emails from my thunderbird account (jdeiters@san.rr.com) Getting this error

An error occurred while sending mail: Outgoing server (SMTP) error. The server responded: EHLO 174.243.180.71 blocked. Please see https://www.spectrum.net/support/internet/understanding-email-error-codes for more information. AUP#Out-1080.


I contacted Spectrum and they were unable to help me. They directed me to this site.

Grateful for any insight you can provide

Using the last release of Thunderbird (version 91.2.0) for a Mac running Big Sur (OS version 11.6) when applying the "Format> Page colors and background", the Thunderbird app will always crash, Then you have to force quit the app to close it and all entries are lost for that email. This occurs every time this feature is applied. The latest release appears to be very unstable.

I can't be the only one running into this issue, I have a several gmail accounts and they've all been reporting problems with sending email of the past week or two.

Depending on which machine I'm using, I will get everything from password error to something called "Want Auth Error".

My email is a POP 3 account. When using Thunderbird it indicates at the bottom that it has contacted the server, that there are 110 emails to download, and that it is downloading. However, no new emails will show up. I have checked the email server by accessing it through a web browser and the emails are there. Thunderbird will not download them and post them for me to read. I have done all the compact folders, erase .msf files to rebuild. I have erase and un-installed and re-installed, updated, all that stuff and still nothing. I have use Mozilla Backup and reloaded old settings, erased and reloaded new settings but still nothing. I can use my computer at home and it works fine. This is my work computer that will not download and update my emails. I have use Thunderbird for many years and don't really want to change.

This has occurred only since the recent update. When I send a message, TB will pop up a window show Status: Sending message... and the Progress bar goes to 100%. But it never completes. If I cancel the message, generally it was not sent as there is nothing in the sent folder, although once or twice it did send even though I cancelled, but that may have been after letting it sit for an hour before cancelling. I found if I cancel right away and then resend, it sometimes it goes thru, and then it works for a while. But I've also had it grey out the main screen and the message composition window when sending a signed email with an attachment, and I eventually terminated and restarted TB after waiting an hour. Afraid I haven't done a scientific assessment of cause and effect when using signed vs. unsigned, with and w/out attachments, TB restart vs. continuous use, or laptop running vs. relogging in after auto-lock timeout. But it does seem to act normally once I get it to successfully send a message and I haven't let the computer lock.

Since upgrading to 91.2.0 (64-bit) I've been having multiple issues on a daily basis. I've tried repairing and compacting all folders, to no avail.

I have Windows 10 64-bit version 21H1, build 19043.1288 with 64 GB of RAM.

Images are attached for the first three.

Sending email: The "Sending Message" dialog pops up, the progress bar reaches 100%, and it hangs. I click "Cancel" and get a message that the message either couldn't be sent or couldn't be save to the "Sent" folder. This generally happens when replying to an email.

My inbox show no unread email, but the folder name in the "Folders" panel is highlighted, indicating unread email.

I select an unread email in the inbox. I have the reading pane open at the bottom of the window and can see the email. The email does not get marked as read. The Folders pane does not update to reflect that the email has been read. I have Thunderbird set to mark messages as read immediately.

It can take a very long time to load a new email, particularly if there are embedded images.

Thunderbird does not seem to be synchronizing properly with my email accounts, which are all set up as IMAP. I'll get messages from my email server that my quota is reaching it's limit, even though I delete messages on a regular basis and purge the Trash regularly. My account has a 100MB size limit.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Folks,

I am a long-standing Thunderbird supporter and user. For over 10 years I have had 5 accounts that I control via Thunderbird. All of them point to GoDaddy E-mails from my business Web account.

All of a sudden about 1 month ago, one of them stopped connecting ... now I regularly get this error message as the account tries to connect. I have verified the password and the settings MULTIPLE TIMES. Nothing should have changed in the settings, and as I review them, they are all set similarly to the alternate accounts which are all still functioning as anticipated.

I haven't tried to remove the account and then re-Add it ...

Please help.

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 21.10 and lost access to my to google calendars. I was running the Google Calendar add on. This was asking me to log in to to my google account, this account has two factor authentication enabled. I have many attempts to try and complete the two step process. But all end in failure.

1. I enter my google username. 2. I enter my google password. 3. This brings up a greyed out screen with a rotating icon saying that two factor authentication is being attempted. This eventually times out with a generic error condition. 4. I then try one of the numerous alternative authentication methods. The ones a can use all end up at the same failure as follows. 5. The two step process completes and brings the permissions screen. 6. I select the permission I want - read write access. 7. This then fails with the error shown in the attached image.

I removed the add and tried the new method of adding calendars from the calendar screen. Thats failed in the same way.

All help gratefully received.

After updating to v. 91 about 2 weeks ago I now noticed that two local folders became draft folders and ALL messages stored there are now "drafts", including all received messages. I did NOT change any account settings. The two folders are among those that I use most frequently.

How can I revert the attributes of these two folders to "normal" local folders again so that the messages stored there are "final" and not "drafts"? Thank you.

I work in a small team. We use Thunderbird as a calendar and tasks client, all of this being synced on a Nextcloud server. I need to see my teammates' events, this is important for how our team works. Tasks on the other hand are personal, we only sync them on Nextcloud for easy acccess on multiple devices, but we don't need to share our tasks with the rest of the team. In fact, I don't want to see my teammates' tasks at all because it makes my own task list unreadable (we are a team of 6, so on average 5 tasks out of 6 in the list are not mine...)

The problem is simple : if I hide my teammates' calendars in the Tasks tab, Thunderbird also hides them in the Calendar tab and I don't see the events anymore. I have to turn the calendars on and off all the time.

So I have two questions : - Is there a way I didn't find to display only the events and not the tasks from a calendar ? - If not, where can I make a feature request for this ?

I have 4 PCs, all are Windows 10 Pro, version 21H1. All have installed Thunderbird 91.2.0 x64. On all, I am using the Sophos Endpoint Security virus protection.

All PCs but one are working OK with Thunderbird. Recently I changed the password of one of my gmail.com accounts. On three PCs I could update the password settings in Thunderbird without issues. On the fourth, it just didn't accept the new password. So I deleted the account on that PC and tried to recreate it. It worked to the point where I clicked the 'Done' button in the Account Setup dialog and logged into my Google account and clicked 'Allow' to enable Thunderbird to access the Google mail account. At that moment 'Checking password' message changed to 'Unable to login at server' on a yellow background in the Account Setup dialog. On that same PC, I can access Gmail through the web interface without trouble.

When trying to solve the issue I uninstalled the Thunderbird, removed its folders in Local and Roaming folders, then reset the PC and installed the Thunderbird again. The issue was not solved. I can't configure any of the Google accounts, but I have no trouble with the two non-Google IMAP accounts that I have.

Just to make sure, I tried to delete and then recreate a Google account on one of the PCs which seem to work OK and that worked without a glitch.

I also tested the 'problem' PC and was not able to detect any issues except the one with the Thunderbird.
