I need to send an e-mail to school personnel that is time sensitive and am hoping there is an option, similar to outlook, where the sender can tag/flag/mark the e-mail as important/urgent/high priority. Thanks in advance for your help.

1) I have aliases set up in Hotmail.
2) I set up related Identities in Thunderbird (using IMAP).
3) I select an alias above in Thunderbird as the "From" when sending mail.
4) Mail is sent from the wrong alias! (recipient sees the wrong "From" address)

Hotmail seems to only send as its default send-from, regardless of which From identity was selected in Thunderbird. Is there any way to properly send from Hotmail (a.k.a. Live or Outlook) aliases?

Thank you for reading!

When forwarding messages automatically through the Thunderbird filter, "From" field of the forwarded letter changes to my email.

What can I do or what add-on can be installed so that I can configure:

1) forwarded letter has an original "From" field

or

2) forwarded letter has added a "reply-to address" field containing sender address automatically.

This is necessary so that the recipient by clicking on "reply", set in the "To" address of the original sender.

Default there is forwarded user address.

Seems like forever, when I click on "Move To" the program provided a drop down list from which I could select the target location for my move.

Lately, however, there's been my previous move locations and a 'fill in' box.

I want to go back to the old way - have I changed something to get this new system?

Using TB 52.2.1 on Win 10 (x64) I can't find a way to either highlight a text by making the background around just those letters appear in a different colour; or a format painter to enable the copying of the format of a text them painting it onto a different text. Using the HTML editor of course. As a work around I can do this in Word or OpenOffice then copy/paste the text into a message, but is there an inbuilt way of achieving this please ?

I've read several pages of people having the same problem with font size in Thunderbird inbox. Wouldn't a quick solution be to revert to the prior versions of Firefox and if necessary Thunderbird to restore Theme Font & Size Changer for Thunderbird? Can anyone tell me what those versions are? I am aware of the downside of using older versions - but to me those issues are not outweighed by the inability to easily read the Thunderbird inbox screen.

I have a single profile that has 8 accounts (all SMTP email accounts on my own server), each has its own smtp account. I need to change the default account but it will not change. Tried rebooting as well.

The one I want to change to is set as the default. And when I create a New Message the reply to is using the original email address. If I click the reply to drop down the one I want is set to the 1st entry as the default, but its the 2nd entry that keeps populating for all new messages.

How do I get it to set the reply to address to be the 1st one in the drop down?

This is behavior that changed recently. It used to be that I always got a reply-all button, now that button disappears when the message is sent by me to a single person. (!!?). I can still right click and then select reply-all from the drop-down menu, but what's the logic behind removing the button from the preview pane? Very frequently I want to send a follow-up email to a previously sent email, this is reply-all functionality, why make it so difficult? Is there any way I can restore the button to the preview pane?

I have a couple of Thunderbird installations at different locations. One is the standard folder structure, per account. IE, each account hase Inbox Draft Sent Archive Bulk Mail Trash (well mostly) At one location I made some changes long ago and I want to revert to that view. I now have multiple accts mail going into the Local Folders

How can I revert to that default structure? I have a lot of email accounts. I realize there will be some work involved. I tried folder view "Unified" but that is not it.

Starting with TB 31.2 - some four months ago - I have not been able to open TB to the Inbox. I downloaded the "Select INbox" add on many times (and disabled/removed as many times) but it does not work consistently. When it does finally work I have no idea why. And then the next time, it doesn't work again!

Recently (since < 1 month) it happens sometimes to me that I accidentally reply to a news message with an email to the sender. I noticed, there are two buttons labelled "reply": the one in the message header and one on the toolbar (see screenshot, if the upload succeeds). I searched and found this old discussion https://groups.google.com/d/topic/mozilla.support.thunderbird/rKuSOomYM5w/discussion as well as this bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=788304

Now, when I click the one in the toolbar I really am sending a reply to the newsgroup which is what I intend. If I click the other "reply" I will send an email reply to the sender.

Question: has there been another recent change to button behavior or am I really tripping into the change mentioned in linked resources above?

Thanks a lot!

I'm running the latest version of Thunderbird (38.6.0) and a while ago (sorry I can't remember when as I've been trying to search online for a solution on and off for a few months now) my "Open in Conversation" option no longer works. I used to use it regularly and it was super helpful. But now it's pretty much always greyed out and cannot be selected. Are you able to help please?

Hi there,

I have been trying to set up signatures to use for our company email address' however im having some trouble.

Ive followed all the steps on the help page, using plain text works, though using attached images/attached files containing HTML files that were created in Thunderbird do not work. When I send these emails to other Thunderbird users it is successful, though when sending to computers using Outlook or to my iPhone, the emails simply do not get received.

What does work was using the HTML option and using Amazon photo sharing as a image link. Code below:




<a href="www.burtonjoinery.com">www.burtonjoinery.com</a>

This works and sends to all clients though after a few days the signature picture appears a broken icon. Using the same above code on Outlook the picture remains so im 99% certain it is not the link expiring but is a client issue.

Hoping somebody may have some tips for me?!

Thanks in advance.

When I reply to an HTML email the original message is quoted with colorful bars on the left. This includes multiple levels of bars if the original message was always quoting the previous message. I prefer to reply inline to several messages (I place my response within the quoted text, not above it). This is where the trouble starts.

I remove the embedded quote simply by highlighting it and pressing delete. The problem is this reformats the rest of the quoted message removing all paragraph breaks. I'm left with one long unformatted paragraph.

This feels like a defect. But maybe there's cleanup/remove embedded option I'm not seeing. I'd love to just have the embedded quotes removed by default (all the addons for this appear to work only for text, not HTML).
