This last update made some annoying changes to Thunderbird. Most I can live with, but one I cannot. Immediately after the last update, Thunderbird started overriding my preferred sort setting for email which is "unthreaded". I do NOT read emails by threads. I read them chronologically. Yet every single time I select View > Sort by > Unthreaded, within a few days (and this last time in less than 24 hours and while I was reading an email!!), this setting gets overridden and my email view goes back to threaded. How do I make this stop?

I usually leave today's group and"yesterdays" group expanded.

But if i close TBird and reopen it they are all collapsed.

Is there a solution to this so that it remembers what i had expanded ?

I turned off junk mail filtering and am glad I did. I don't get that much junk, and so I just mark it all in the inbox. What I don't have to do now is restore all the messages from a couple of listserves I'm on that Thunderbird insists on moving to junk - not every mail from these listerves, just some. There is nothing weird in the subject, I have the addresses in my address book, I'm constantly marking them as not junk, and it still insists on sending them to junk - sometimes.

But why doesn't it work properly? Why is it so wrong so much of the time?

MacOS: Quit Dialog Needed (CMD+Q vs CMD+W)

In the context of Supernova and improvements, for Mac users, I request that we (finally) have a confirm-before-quit dialog. Similar to Firefox and others. On the Mac, CMD+W (close window) and CMD+Q are next to each other, it's so easy to make a mistake -- and still, Thunderbird just closes. This can be very frustrating when you're in the middle of something and/or have other TB windows open.

Fortunately, I believe this is easy to fix and implement.

How can we get this on track for implementation?

The SuperNova UI is awful. Its font density settings are all trash.

I rolled back because it's so bad. And how cool was it that the UI was updated without warning me that "installing the latest version" would overhaul UI settings and design without asking if I want that? So cool, so thoughtful, like a dog dumping on the kitchen floor.

Is there any option in it yet to allow users to keep the old UI?

I have TB 115.6.0 running on 3 computers (1 desktop and 2 laptops). On 2 computers there is a tiny icon on the right hand side in the menu bar that allows me to switch between the "new and improved" (but utterly horrible), side by side message list and the classic view.

On the laptop I am currently using to write this request, TB 115.6.0 does not have that wonderful little icon and I am condemned to use the side by side display or find another mail client.

Can someone help me find or restore that little icon that gives me a choice or alternatively lets me change the message list display back to its old useful configuration?


As an aside, why do software developers insist on making "improvements" that no one needs or wants?

I have just started using Thunderbird (version 91.0.0) and I can't find a way to disable the irritating auto double spacing using the enter key. I have researched online and found lots of various answers to the same question (some years ago). Unfortunately, the processes suggested in the answers do not relate to what I am seeing on my computer. Can someone point me in the right direction, please? Thanks.

managing multiple e-mail accounts in Thunderbird

I have been using Outlook (Office 2010, Windows 7) for many years for multiple e-mail accounts, including about 6 Gmail accounts and 1 "other" IMAP e-mail account. I have "rules" that copy certain types of e-mails into specific folders in different accounts. I have separate inboxes for each account. But now, G-mail no longer can work with Outlook from Office 2010. I purchased Office 2021 but that will not work with Windows 7. And my computer and multiple scanners and other software will not work with newer Windows... Therefore, I'm looking for another e-mail client that will work with my multiple Gmail and other accounts and permit automatic copying and moving of certain types of messages between folders. Also to have MANY folders in one particular (non Gmail) account. Can I configure Thunderbird to perform these tasks? If not, is there any other e-mail client that would be more suitable for me? Thank you.

Witam, od paru dni pojawił mi się problem z szybkim filtrowaniem (ctrl+Shift+K) Mianowicie, wpisując w pole wyszukiwania dowolną frazę, nie pojawiają mi się opcje wyszukiwania pod okienkiem. Ponadto program nie szuka frazy którą wpisuję w okienko. Sprawdzałem istniejące wątki pomocy, jednak nic co było tam wskazywane nie rozwiązało problemu. (indeksowanie ->jest, plik global usuwałem itp.) Proszę o ewentualne wskazówki jak można z tego wybrnąć. Pozdrawiam, Łukasz Piskorz

I recently started using the archive option manually, by right-clicking emails and selecting "Archive".

I've noticed that for some, very few, emails, the "Archive" option is not there.

I can manually mark it as read and move it to the archive folder, but I'm trying to work out why the option is not available as it usually is.

I've added the senders address to my contact list, and Junk filter is turned off.

I've attached two images showing the right-click context menu in both cases.

Hi Thunderbird,

in my office I am forced to use Outlook and so I am used to the keyboard shortcuts defined in Outlook. One of the often used keyboard shortcuts is CTRL+SHIFT+M to start the writing of a new mail.

In Thunderbird this shortcut seems to be hard-coded to 'Move/Copy message to previous target folder Again' which is basically not a bad function, if someone is used to it. But as a user who loves keyboard shortcuts I am sometimes struggling with this feature as Thunderbird reminds the last folder even over a restart of Thunderbird! So it can be that I haven't used Thunderbird for a week and then want to write a mail and press automatically CTRL+SHIFT+M and then a mail is moved to a folder I cannot remember. This behavior is very annoying!

1. Is there any way to change the keyboard shortcut? 2. If this keyboard shortcut cannot be changed or removed it should only work if a user already has moved a file in the current session of Thunderbird. The memory function over different Thunderbird sessions of this keyboard shortcut is not helpful at all. 3. Is there a way to show the previous target folder in Thunderbird? This would at least reduce the search for unwanted moving of mails.

Waiting and hoping for a reply

Failed MAPI connection to Thunderbird

Hello, I've been forced to migrate from a legacy program (Microsoft Essentials Live Mail) which supported MAPI, because it has insufficient security to connect to a gmail account. Some time ago I inquired if Thunderbird supported MAPI and was told that it did support simple MAPI, which is all I require for simply sending and receiving emails via a specialty App I created in Visual Basic 6 that runs automatically on a PC running Windows 10.

As stated there has been no issues using Live Mail, until Google changed it's security requirements as of 6/6/22. To access Live Mail via the VB6 MAPI controls, I simply needed to make Live Mail the Default mailer. After installing Thunderbird [91.10.0 (64 bit)], I successfully setup the same Gmail account I was using in Live Mail, and made Thunderbird the default mailer. I tried using the VB6 app, but it declares an error when attempting to send a message. When using Live Mail, the App didn't need to be running, a MAPI-send would automatically launch a abbreviated version of Live Mail that would send the message then automatically terminate. I tried this first with Thunderbird, that gave the first error. I then tried having Thunderbird running, but a MAPI-send still failed.

After reading some of past Thunderbird posts on MAPI issues, I noticed a post that suggested my VB6 32 bit App would not be able to connect with the 64bit version of Thunderbird, that I would need the 32 bit version of Thunderbird.

I would appreciate any thoughts on what may be causing the MAPI connection issue with Thunderbird.

X. P.S. Unfortunately the VB6 App, in it's current form does not post a specific error, which would no doubt be some indecipherable MS message; It just states the operation being performed (Send) where the error occurred.

Hi Thunderbird

I created an email alias "ani***@fed*****.org" for my gmail id years ago. I wanted to add this alias to Thunderbird to receive emails addressed only to "ani***@fed****.org" and reply to those emails and sender must show as "ani****@fed*****.org"?

Currently I receive emails addressed to both ani*****@fed****.org and ani*****@gmail.com in my gmail. I receive a lot of emails in both email-ids and I miss to read emails from "ani****@fed*****.org".

I want to use Thunderbird to receive emails addressed only to "ani********@fed**.org", which means emails addressed to "ani*****@gmail.com mustn't arrive in Thunderbird inbox. Is it possible?

Regards, Anish

I've been using Thunderbird for years and had very few problems. I view and keep all my incoming and sent emails in date order, and move them to the relevant folders when they are dealt with. This morning my incoming emails also have other incoming emails, and my original sent email attached to them. I think this is called threading? but I have never set this up or asked for it, and don't even know how to do it. I'm finding this 'threading' is really annoying - I want all my emails separate and not joined or linked together. How do I disable this setting and stop all my emails joining together like this? I've looked at the help pages and the answers are too technical. I've tried the ones I can understand but they don't work. Can someone please send me a step by step solution to this? thank you Ray
