Is there some way I can change the order in which email accounts are presented in the left panel on Thunderbird (91.9.0 (64-bit))? Perhaps a config file within the profile?

I note that in the preferences/settings, you can activate the account with the mouse, but you can't drag/drop to change order (maybe a useful feature to have?).

Thanks.

Hello!

Is there a way to change the sort view (of all folders) to 'unthreaded' as default instead of the current default being 'threaded'. (See attached image)

Since the last update, I have to manually change the view to 'unthreaded' for each folder each time I restart Thunderbird. Very cumbersome.

Perhaps somewhere in the Config Editor?

Kind regards

Mail Filters Do Not Work

Hi, I am new to Thunderbird and not very computer savvy.

I have successfully set up my mail account and am trying to apply filters to incoming mail. The filter is very simple: If the message contains FROM "@mail.zillow.com" send the message to the ZILLOW folder (under that email address).

I have checked the filter log and it says "could not get filter db". I have tried to run the filter manually - no go.

I have tried to read about others who have a similar issue and it talks about debugging. I'm sorry. I do not know how to do this.

Thank you in advance for help.

Also, is it a 100% expunge, or is there control criteria that can be set? I cannot seem to find anything that will answer these questions, and I am VERY Hesitant about losing all of my emails due to misunderstanding the parameters of this service.

Hi, I want to use Windows Task Scheduler to send command line emails via Thunderbird.

I have found only: thunderbird -compose "attachment='C:\first.txt,C:\second.txt'"

This works. But I also want to include email to, subject, text body and send.

I have tried options like Blat. Blat works but not with gmail.com as they block it. So with Thunderbird installed locally I may be able to work around the new gmail restrictions.

Many thanks.

This is Thunderbird 102.3.3. running under OSX 11.7. Regarding my age and gradual loss of sight I would like to (permanently) enlarge/zoom the main window of thunderbird, which opens up upon invoking the program. I managed to zoom the messages in the message window by hitting cmd + but this does not work for the main window. Could not find a solution/hint despite quite some search. Thanks for your help.

I am running Thunderbird 102.2.0 64-bit. I am unable to increase the default font size. I can increase it by selecting text and clicking the "Large Font Size" button, but it is annoying to have to do that every time I compose a message. The instructions I have for changing the default font size are:

Tools > Account Settings > Composition & Addressing > Check Compose messages in HTML format > Global Composing Preferences > General > Language & Appearance > Set default font

It doesn't work for me. Is there an alternate method?

Hello,

I am using an addon called 'Provider for Google Calendar' that works seamlessly to sync calendar events in both directions using my Gmail Android app and Thunderbird email client v102 on my desktop. It's great.

I have been reading about addons for doing the same thing for contacts but the 2 addons that I see appear to be for use with older Thunderbird versions. There is gContactSync and Google Contacts so I am wondering if anyone may know of an add on or work around that will allow for the syncing of contacts between Thunderbird v102 and a Gmail account?

Sorry if I missed it but I cannot find anything when searching - perhaps nothing exists yet?

Thanks in advance for any tips,

Mike

I am going around in circles here. I have searched and all the options I have found appear to be out of date or don't work. All I want to do is increase the size of the fonts I see in the left hand folders list and the folders message lists in the main panel. It's far too small for me and everything I have tried makes no difference. Please guide me.
