I've recently changed from Outlook to Thunderbird and am really a 'newbie'. I've been able to set up signatures using the online documentation and forums and it is working great when I compose a new email. When I reply to an email or forward an email, the signature does not display. I have tried very hard to find a solution via online docs and forums, but cannot find the answer. Any help greatly appreciated! Mark

Is there a way of changing the order of email accounts diplayed on the left?

I have a lot of email accounts and before I try and add them all to Thunderbird, I wondered if there is a way of changing the order they are listed on the left-hand side?

I was hoping that under Account settings, you would be able to select one of the accounts and then use a "move up" or "move down" option "Account Actions" at the bottom to change the order, but there is no such option.

I have just added two email accounts at the moment and tried using "Set as Default" under "Account Actions" which does set the selected account to the top (at least in Account Settings immediately, but also in Thunderbird itself after logging out and back in again.

What I am hoping was that someone might know if I added 10 email accounts, then wanted to change the order of their listing, I could use "Set as Default" a number of times to move the selected one to the top until they are listed in the order that I desire?

Of course I could just make sure that I add each account in the reverse order to which want them listed, which is fine until I want to add an additional one and change the order again (I do not want to keep removing them again and re-adding them in a certain order if I need to add a new one).

Of course I could just try trial and error, but it seems to me that surely I am not the only one that wants to use a lot of email accounts and change the order they are listed, later? Perhaps there is a more elegant solution that I am unaware of (even if this requires manually editing a configuration file or something?).

Any help appreciated...

I currently have two email accounts in use on my thunderbird. When sending emails on Mozilla Thunderbird, the immediate preference is to send it from the first account which I added to the programme but for the most part I only want to send emails from the second account. I often forget to change the sender email address at the top of the message window which is becoming an annoyance. I'm sure there must be a way to change the preferences around but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere!

I have left a lot of emails in my Inbox that should have been moved to specific folders. How do I move them in bulk to their specific folders other than moving each one individually. I have highlighted the messages concerned by searching and then selecting all. I then click on move to.... Nothing seems to be happening....I'm sure there's probably a step I'm missing here. What would it be?? A similar problem occurs when I want to do a mass delete of emails from a specific sender....

I seem to have mistakenly changed the settings so the several email accounts are no longer displayed in the way that was familiar to me.

I find it difficult to describe but although the counter shows several thousand emails, they were not displayed unless, somehow I manged to get the in boxes separated from the rest of the accounts - that is a very poor description of the problem, I hope someone will tell me how to return things to the original default settings I had several years ago and before numerous updates.
