Just started today with 78.4.3. A rogue Google calendar reminder from October 4 keeps popping up (it was dismissed when it first came up last month). I delete it in Google calendar, synced, verified it's gone in Thunderbird calendar. Even restarted both the program and computer.

The reminder keeps coming back every few minutes. And I keep deleting it.

Any ideas? My thinking was to remove the calendar and add it back in, but wanted to check first.

It looks to me like Thunderbird has a bug when you want to send plain text email that on sending and receipt flows itself to the width of the window.

To send flowed text that flows on the sending site, you set (in the config editor):

mailnews.wrap_long_lines=true (don't mess with my outgoing emails; just let them go as long as they need) mailnews.wraplength=0 (don't have a specific line length; just wrap to the window length) plain_text_wrap_long_lines=true (wrapping is great, particularly in the client) mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed=true (regardless of what I send, the recipient should be able to rewrap it so it flows comfortably in their screen) mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support=false (don't disable flowed text; I like flowed text).

On sending this works great; it flows to the border of the window and wraps, reflowing as you change text without needing to hit ctrl-r or anything (since all the wrapping is virtual).

However, when you send this way, your email will be sent as one long line, and on receipt, thunderbird will display it as one long line, not reflowing it at all.

On the other hand, if you tweak this by changing one line:

mailnews.wraplength=78 (or whatever, pick a length)

Then while composing it will stick stubbornly to 78 lines (or whatever). However, on reciept, because of format=flowed, it will reflow your message to your window size and look great.

Obviously this is a bug. By documentation, mailnews.wraplength=-1 should disable flowing at all; length=0 should send whatever it sends but reflow on client side, which it doesn't -- at least in thunderbird.

Is there a workaround (also, is this a live bug?)

This is from thunderbird 78.9.1 (32 bit).

There already is a thread discussing the dialog box "Compact Folders". However this related to the purging of DELETED messages. It did not relate to messages which have been MOVED to a different folder for which the same dialog box appears. Could someone please tell me: 1 Why do I get the "Compact Folders" dialog when I MOVE a file. This should not change the disc storage requirement since presumably only the relevant entry in the file allocation table is changed not the 1.7GB suggested in the dialog - see attached image. 2 What would happen after MOVING a file if I pressed Proceed 3 This "feature" was not present in earlier versions of Thunderbird (there was "Compact" after a deletion) so what is the reason for including it in the newer one (78.9.1 (32-bit).

Thank you

I changed from email server to another. In the end, I had to backup my TBird profiles directory, uninstall TBird, delete Profiles, and install a new version of TBird. Don't ask.

When I started up TBird, I was (finally) able to configure it for the new server, and it got the emails that had queued up in the 3 hours it took me to get there (again, don't ask).

It was only after that that I noticed a dialog had popped up inviting me to choose a profile. On a whim, I restored the profile that has all my old mail in it and chose that one, and voila! my old emails are all still there, etc., and I'm up and running.

Now for my question. As I said, emails came in when I ran the program but before I changed over to the previous profile. In the previous profile, these emails do not appear, no surprise there. Is there any way to move them from their profile over to the one I really want to keep using?

TIA

Hello, I have a user with a GMAIL account who accidentally deleted everything in her Archive while on her iPhone. We back up her computer nightly so I just grabbed a backup of her profile and restored it. 29000 emails reappeared like magic, except... as soon as the folders are opened and synced, the deleted emails are deleted again.

I have tried a new profile, a different version of both thunderbird and the import/export tool, export then import, full restore of the profile folder, all to no avail. Is there any way to make this stop?

Thanks!

Last year Yahoo decided it needed better security. Mainly I use my PC (Windoows 10) or phone (Android) for email but now I have been asked to use the laptop again. According to my research the solution is to use SMTP settings of OAuth2 viz

"update the Authentication Method' for the Pop or Imap mail account.

  1. Select 'Menu app icon' > 'Account Settings'
  2. Select mail account name in left Pane
  3. Bottom right: click on 'Edit SMTP server'
  4. Set outgoing server (SMTP) 'Authentication Method' to 'Oauth2'
  5. Click on 'OK'
  6. Select 'Server Settings' for mail account
  7. Set incoming server 'Authentication Method' to 'Oauth2'
  8. Click on 'OK' 

Exit Thunderbird Wait a few moments for background process to complete Start Thunderbird"

Items 1 and 2 successful. Item 3 non-existant. Bottom right "Outgoing server (SMTP)" is set to Yahoo! mail smtp.mail.yahoo.com; there is no OAuth2 option. Further down on left is an option "Outgoing server smtp" but that opens the same windows as at bottom right.

Question: where do I find the option to set OAuth2 please.

I've been using Thunderbird as a POP email repository for years without any issues (I use IMAP for connecting from other devices), but I recently had to wipe my windows 10 installation and start again. I backed up all my local email folders beforehand, so I've not lost anything, but when I added my email account details, Thunderbird re-downloaded over 3000 emails and deleted them from the Gmail server, despite me having ticked the box which says leave emails on the server until I delete them. They are all in the "bin" folder on the server, so I should be able to restore them all, but how do I stop them being downloaded and deleted again?

Interestingly, if I locally delete an email, then go to the server and move it back from the bin to the inbox, Thunderbird does not download again.

I must have configured it wrong, but I'm blowed if I can see where. Any ideas? See screenshot of server settings.

Hello! I am using Thunderbird v. 48.8.0 and up until cca 3-4 months ago I had no problem using Thunderbird for receiving and sending mails from Google Account. But over the night I started to receive errors about receiving the e-mails but had no problems sending them. Since I didn't find any help, I deleted account from Thunderbird and tried to create it from the beginning. But after that I couldn't do that. The error I continue to receive is "wrong mail or wrong pass" but I can log in into Gmail via web with no problems what so ever. I even uninstalled Thunderbird and installed it again. But before new installation, I deleted every file (I could find and I read about on the Internet) connected to the Thunderbird. Nothing helped. I still cannot even create a Gmail account in Thunderbird. I don't know what else to do. Please help because I don't want to use other e-mail client - I am very happy with Thunderbird but this is really annoying. Thank You! Big HELLO from Zagreb, Croatia. Ana
