I just downloaded and installed Thunderbird.

I didn't create my email accounts in the order I want them to appear, so I need to re-arrange them. Also, I'll be adding many more folders within each account (where message rules will organize the messages) and I'll want them in a particular order.

So far, I don't see any way to change the order of those folders or accounts. I tried searching in Support, but didn't find the answer. How can I do that?

Thanks!

Every 15 minutes or so a small popup appears at the bottom right of my screen with a few of my latest emails, telling me that I have a new message, and playing a sound. I do NOT want this, as it is very distracting. I want to simply check my email in Thunderbird when I'm ready. Thanks for info on how to turn off this notification. Juliana

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've read a lot of help on this - almost all of them say, "As you have discovered there are three visible TO/Cc/Bcc fields..." and: " type or select email address and press enter to move to next TO field".

None of that works. I have only ONE visible "To" field. It has no controls to change it to a Cc or Bcc one. There is a "CC" or "BCC" option beside the "From" field. Pressing Enter at the end of an address does precisely nothing.

Another copy of TB on another computer has all the features you gaily point to - but mine doesn't. Where do I find it?

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.
