I have just been sent a message from an outlook account that wants me to go to outlook on line to view it, but while there I cannot save or print it. I have not seen this format before - is it new, is there a work-around for me to view and, importantly, to save the full text within Thunderbird? I am using version 60.8.0 (32-bit) within Windows 10 (up to date I think...)

I just started using two apps to connect with vulnerable people in my local area with a view to supporting them during this pandemic.

One is WhatsApp downloaded to PC and phoene and the other is NextDoor used through the Firefox browser. I have used my gmail email address for contacts on NextDoor and when I checked if I had received any messages this message pop: imap.gmail/Thunderbird Authentication failure. I had to change or reset my email address password a couple of times in a short period so that could explain the security problem. I can access the email direct but I prefer to use Thunderbird because I can easier manage my five email accounts in one place.

Can anyone gelp me return to using T/bird & Gmail as I did previously and still be able to use WhatsApp and NextDoor.

Hello guys, I'm a thunderbird fanatic and use it even at work managing 10+ accounts. Up to Thunderbird 68, all was super fine:

The massive profile with 60+ folder was well organized with a handful of incredible add-ons to: - color folders - customize color account background - manage folder sorting The workflow was smooth and very productive: the folder colored to my like, the new email received were visible at a glance in the related folder by simply browsing and detecting the different accent in the folder name, and so on.

I always loved updates and kept the auto update on... until yesterday when my 68 has been migrated automatically to 78 !

No one of the necessary add-ons works anymore! No one of those fantastic the developer is anymore interested in upgrading them (changes are too frequent, and need to invest too much time to upgrade them) The interface is to uniform, I cannot customize colors in the same efficient way.... If I want the same 60+ nested folder sorting, I need to rename all of them... When a folder receives a new email the accent color (sort of bold blue) is nearly same as that of a folder with unread email (bold black)... Oh my god, what a mess !

Since no add-ons are available to re arrange the profile like it was with Thunderbird 68, my only option is to roll-back to 68... and stay there until the necessary add-on will get back to 78 (if any).

Do you know how I can convert back my profile just upgraded to 78 back to 68 ???

Please Please Please, help me ! Pietro

I have used thunderbird now for about 6 years, for all my website accounts. During that time I have had very few problems, about 9 months ago I started using Windows 8, I transferred all my accounts from my old machines running on XP pro to new machines running Win 8 and thunderbird ran ok. I have auto updates running so I am assuming both thunderbird and windows are updating whenever! About 4 weeks ago I started experiencing major problems with Thunderbird, it would start then freeze, then it would start again then freeze, if I ran it in safe mode it would work for a while. Now it opens and freezes, the message at the top just says ' Thunderbird is not responding'. Even in safe mode now it will not work! I have tried uninstalling and re-installing, I have even tried installing an earlier version of Thunderbird, I Have deleted the profile and forced it to produce a new one, I have spent hours trawling different sites trying to find an answer, and you know what, the only conclusion I could come to was, nobody seems to care whether this problem is solved or not, so reluctantly I have had to give up and I moved all my accounts to Outlook, which works perfectly with Windows 8.1. I think that should have been the answer, right from the start of the problem!

I was connected to O365 with my work email but cannot send any message. IMAP works just fine, all folders synced regularly, but sending not work for some unknown reason.

SMTP setting is as follow: smtp.office365.com port 587 STARTTLS OAuth (this is correct setting, all others shows errors, including outlook.partner.cn & smtp.office365.cn, which is completely normal since I'm not in China).

The first thing that jump out is that my password is not OK, which is not correct. Password is OK. Click on "Retry" or "Enter new password" do nothing, just return the same pop up. If "Cancel", then receiving message with "unknown error 80004005" and all other blablabla about unknown reasons, with instruction to check my SMTP settings.

I've tried all variations available, but nothing works. Sometimes, at some moment after click on Cancel, it said "Message sent" and I can see it in my Sent Items folder, but it's fake because I never receive that test message to my personal Gmail address.

I have already tried all suggestions I could find (deleting passwords, resetting all, restarting, deleting and adding account again, changes in Config editor related to security.tls), but nothing worked for me.

My OS: Win 10 Pro, build 2004, TB version 78.3.2

Any advise is very welcome. Thank you all in advance.

Old server, smtp-server.nc.rr.com, worked fine until Spectrum changed it. I now get a time out error after contacting that server. Spectrum tech support says the new name should be entered as smtp-server.mail.spectrum.com, but when I try that, I get an immediate error saying the server may be configured incorrectly. Clearly Spectrum is not going to reconfigure their server because my public domain email app says so.

Any suggestions?

The emails that I send with Thunderbird are clean and very professional when I send them. When my clients respond, their emails are also very clean and professional. However, the string of emails includes "�" after my sentences. These unusual characters also magically appear at the end of sentences in other individuals' emails in the earlier string of emails.

My clients tell me that the characters "�" appear in the email that they receive from me. I would like to know how to eliminate the unwanted addition of these characters.
