Every few days, the index pane of some folder gets corrupted. Repair (right-click, Properties, Repair Folder) fixes it. Then a few days later this repeats, with a different folder. I have three IMAP accounts and this occurs on more than one of them.

Any suggestion for finding and fixing the underlying problem?

I have previously (about 1 month ago) connected without issue to my Ionos email account. Today it will not connect. I have updated all the POP3/SMTP settings, read from the Ionos site. I have re-entered the current password too. My Gmail account downloads fine, it is just my Ionos account that will not load. I don't get an error but the last mail showing is in March (2024) and I have had hundreds since then.

Xfinity says it is on Thunderbirds end. All my information entered is correct. I need my emails back ON MY pc! 10 years. It started with a Microsoft update that completely erased my whole Thunderbird emails and I was prompted to completely set up my accounts. I did my main one with IMAP. It verified my information and then wanted me to give permission because of security issues to go to Xfinity pop up. I logged in there. Then Thunderbird says it can't get to the server. Xfinity says everything is fine on my end and even helped walk me through the set up. I reinstalled Thunderbird and rebooted. Xfinity believes it is Thunderbird's problem. This is a bummer. At least I have email on my little phone, but I need it and all my old stuff back on my computer. The error message from Thunderbird in yellow is "Unable to login at server. Probably wrong configuration or password. " All is correct according to Xfinity/Comcast. Please help.

I tried to update by clicking on Help and About Thunderbird, but it didn't automatically update to the newer version (115.10.1 (64-bit)). So the instructions I followed was do download the new version. However, when I open the new version, all my email accounts and calendars are missing. How do I restore my old profile?

Thunderbird won't send an email because it thinks the email address I'm sending to has spam features. When I type the email address in the To bar it immediately puts an asterisk after the address. The email address is bzawacki@xxxxxxx.com. When I send the email it looks as though it sends then immediately an error message comes up that says the mail server responded with error code 43TH9mcn085202 and blocked the email because it has spam features. All I'm doing is sending an insurance estimate as an attachment to my car dealer. I've gone out to my ISP and added this address as a trusted sender but that didn't fix my issue.

I've been having trouble trying to copy text to the clipboard (in all programs, not just TB) and fiddling around yesterday while trying to copy a paragraph from a TB message to insert it into a Word document, I've unintentionally b* up TB's inbox display. Previously it showed message headers on the left and senders on the right, in bold if as yet unread, and all close set (no spaces between lines). Now however it shows them in table form, with sender and header on the left end of each cell and the date at the right end. What do I have to do to restore the original display mode?

How do I disable automatic translation of Thunderbird messages by Deep-L (or any other machine translator)? This morning I received an email from a family member, written in German. Underneath the original message was an automated translation into English by Deep-L. I didn´t ask for this translation. I speak German as a second language, as well as other languages, and I enjoy using my linguistic abilities. Furthermore, I don´t like my private messages being passed to a database without my permission. If I want a translation of a message, I´ll ask for it.

This is evidently a new, annoying feature. I had an email exchange in German with someone just a few weeks ago without this intervention. I have tried searching the settings tab on Thunderbird, but have not discovered anything about Translation settings (not under Language settings, as far as I can see).

How do I disable Thunderbird sending emails for unwanted translation? Thank you for your assistance.
