Delivery format "auto-detect" does not work any more

The delivery format "auto-detect" does not work any longer on my desktop computer: I can still compose messages in HTML (set as the default), but they are sent only as plain text, although the delivery format "auto-detect" is used as usual. Only when I change the delivery format to "Send the message in both plain text and HTML", it works - but I now need to do that manually for each composed message - rather inconvenient. The problem is the same on all accounts.

This behavior started on 2022-07-06 just after I installed a new S/MIME certificate, but on my notebook I did that as well without getting that problem.

I tried various things which however all did not solve the problem. It seems to me that HTML composition works as normal, but at the end Thunderbird uses auto-detect and wrongly determines that it is not requiring HTML, and therefore sends out only plain text. That is even if I format some text, insert an image, have an HTML table in my signature, etc., which all clearly makes HTML necessary.

The problem seems to be related to my Thunderbird profile folder. When I run it with an older version of the profile folder (about 6 months old), the problem is not there. But I don't simply want to switch to the old profile folder, since it might be tedious to get everything to the new state (messages, certificates, other things which I would need to research). Or could I copy only certain files of the old profile folder to the new one? Would it be something in prefs.js (which has many changes between those versions)?

I am using the latest Thunderbird version (91.12.0 64 bit). My computer runs on Windows 10 Pro.

Can an open email message have a hotlink flag on it to show you've replied previously (Entourage Mac had that feature)

I previously used MS Entourage on Mac and migrated to Thunderbird as the best free alternative to what I missed from Entourage. However as my memory isn't that great it would be very useful to see if I have previously replied to an email, say that came in the last week or two. In Entourage a message displayed at the top of the email saying that if a reply had previously been made and it was hotlinked so a click would take you straight to that reply. Is that feature in Thunderbird and if not could it be added?

Thanks

Since 29 July when I deleted permanently an unwanted message (which looked a phishing msg) all messages deleted are deleted permanently in that they don't show up in Trash. Previous instances of this problem (in 2015 & 2018) are advised to go to Account / Server Settings where there was an option to change the behaviour of message deletions - there's nothing in Server Settings in 91.12.0 that looks like that & I can't find any other way of reversing my choice made for the single one I did want permanently gone which looks like it's now set that way for all. (set-up as a POP server and running on Windows 10.) thanks

Some Toolbar Icons Lost

In setting up Thunderbird on a new machine (I've used Thunderbird for years on other computers), I wanted to customize the Mail Toolbar with some icons I use frequently. I went to View, clicked on Toolbars, and then clicked on Customize. So far, so good.

So then I tried to drag the trash can up, released my mouse button to drop it, and it was nowhere to be seen on the Mail Toolbar -- and it was no longer shown among the icons on the Customize Toolbar, so I couldn't try again.

Clicking on Restore Default Set didn't bring it back among the icons available there. Nor did closing Thunderbird and then restarting Thunderbird.

Ever the masochist, I tried to do all the same with the Reply icon, and encountered all the same problems.

My question: Is there some way to get back all the icons in the Customize Set of icons when Restore Default Set doesn't work (though it does restore the unwanted icons I had earlier dragged off the Mail Toolbar)? If I could do that, I could try again to drag them up to the Mail Toolbar.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

hi there,

so far i was lucky with tb 102 as for me it "just works" as before, _but_ it seems that "sort by ... threaded" is now the default setting for folder views which i personally hate.

as i have "millions" of folders I don't want to switch every single one of them to "unthreaded" manually.

unfortunately i didn't find a setting within the ui that allows to change the setting generally being effective for every folder.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1377304 but it didn't work.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293255 but setting mailnews.default_view_flags from 1 to 0 didn't work.

do i need to change another setting as well? maybe add "ShowExpanded" as well? but i'didn't understand how to do this: "the second group of values can be added to one of the first group to combine effects"

maybe i also have to change the setting "mail.folder.views.version" - to which value?

is it actually possible with new tb 102 to generally change the new default view "sort by ... threaded" to "sort by ... unthreaded"?

help would be very much appreciated; thanks a lot! :)

Since updating to 102.1 all words in quotes and new text in replies are marked red/wavy-underline as spell errors (as you type check is on). Right-click to correct shows no errors even if word is wrong.

This happens with English (Canada and UK) but not English US. [Cdn English is required.]

I have reinstalled the Canadian language pack but it still happens.

Tried switching languages, turning check on/off, restarting TB and more.

Ideas?

Hello.

Two people work on two computers with the same email account. When I mark an email with a star symbol, it means that I'm done with the mail. The problem is, that the star is also showing on the other computer, so the other person, which, not neccessarily is done with it, have the email as "marked". Is there any addon that maybe adds another column with a different star or something like that? We tried marking the mails as "important" but this is very confusing. Or maybe some option, that star system would work locally? Or maybe there is a different way entirelly that two people can work on the same mail address without flagging each others mails? Uhm, prefferably without use of folders or making copies of mails?

Thank you.
