This is something I've never encountered, since I hardly ever go to the Sent folder except to look at something I sent. But this was a different task.

I've had a series of emails from a friend, that my wife wanted me to forward to her so she could see them. So I went to the Sent folder, and forwarded 3 of those emails to my wife. Then she told me she only got one so I went back to Sent and thought they would be at the top of the list, 1-2-3, but that was not what I found. Since those emails were each part of several different threads in the back and forth with my friend, it took me a long time to figure out which email to pick off and resend. I made sure I was sorting them by date, descending, but was bewildered that the listing had the ones I wanted embedded (see screenshot, with the ones I just sent highlighted in red)

So my question is, is there a setting where I could tell Tbird to sort strictly by send date?

I am using Thunderbird 115.11.1 (32-bit) to manage 6 different email accounts for work and personal. I would like to be able to organize "Collected Addresses" according to the account they were used from.

Eg. I want each account to have it's own unique Collected Addresses address book Collected Addresses - Account 1 Collected Addresses - Account 2 Collected Addresses - Account 3 Collected Addresses - Account 4 Collected Addresses - Account 5 Collected Addresses - Account 6

I've looked online and there are some instructions, but they reference settings that I cannot find. Is there a way to do this?

TIA

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

How can I turn off the threading of my emails? Its driving me crazy as when an email comes in after a short time it disappears into the threads and then I have to open each thread to find out who sent the email. At one stage there were 6 emails noted near the inbox but no new unthreaded message, all went to respective threads. Very time wasting.

My Ubuntu distro offered a Thunderbird upgrade from 102 to 115.3.1 and I wish I hadn't taken it. After spending a lot of time getting Thunderbird display to be somewhat like my usual view, I am still unable to restore several favorites.

1. The status bar no longer shows me the total of unread messages 2. To save real estate on the screen, I usually do not display the File menu bar but the hamburger menu drop down in 115.3.1 is missing a lot of items that I used - empty trash being one of them and view>all headers is another. 3. The 'Get Messages' button on the top row doesn't enable me to be selective by mail account - again I have to display the menu bar and so lose screen space. 4. I cannot get the threaded message view to display lines showing the links between messages.

Maybe there are configuration changes I need to make? I'd appreciate whatever help can be offered. Thank you.

Dock mailing lists to the top of Address Book by default

Is it possible to find a way to make Mailing Lists sit at the top of their Address Book by default?

I have looked for an answer but can't seem to find anyone asking this question. I am sure that previous versions (to 102/115) did this naturally but the new versions are different.

For example, in one Address Book I have created a mailing list called Regulars. Previously, all mailing lists show at the top whenever viewing the Address Book, so Regulars would be at the top followed by the first "A" email address. Now, the mailing lists are integrated alphabetically, so that Regulars appears down the list, amongst the "R" emails.

With the contact list now so excessively spread out (yes, I have tried and failed at that unfixable problem), it requires lots of scrolling and searching to find mailing lists. This is illogical, considering the purpose of mailing lists is to make it easy to select a whole group of addresses quickly.

At the moment, I have found a workaround by numbering the list (eg 1. Regulars) but I would prefer to find a way to make the lists behave as they used to. Is that possible?

(I am familiar with userchrome, at a basic level, so I would be able to insert code if necessary).

Hi, I upgraded to the above version last week and I love it...until yesterday and today when I needed to print out a couple of different emails. Prior to upgrading to Supernova, I never had an issue with printing, now I do. Prior, if I clicked on what appeared to be a one page email, it would print out on one page, no issues. Now, if I try and print what should be a one page email, it previews as being three pages. Page one is the headers all by itself at the top of the page with the rest of the page as blank, page two shows as the body of the email, and then page three shows the footers of the email and the attachment list (if any). Why is it doing this and how can I get it back to printing everything on one page like it should be?

I have attached copies of what the pages look like as three pages instead of being on one page like it should be.

Thanks in advance.

Sent font is different from composed font in Thunderbird 102.11.0

I have been searching far and wide for an answer and am stuck here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1368273

This solution doesn't work for Thunderbird 102.11.0 because there is no OTHER WRITING SYSTEMS. I have set LATIN on font and size, composition is set to HTML. Variable width is set, but if I change this to a specific font, it still shows something different than the font I've used to compose, so it doesn't seem to help.

Sent files show Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Why is it so hard? I want my sent files to look like my composed files as much as possible. For example, if I use a serif font to compose, I want a similar or, if available, identical serif font, for readers if they use HTML as well. Thx in advance.

I use Thunderbird 115.1.0. "Show only display name for people in my address book" is not selected in the preferences. The "Full Address column" Add-on does not work with version 115.*

In all folders the names of message senders/recipients are displayed instead of the e-mail addresses. For example, it shows "My Name" in the outbox - not name@example.org, my@name.com etc. In the inbox, it is "Anna Bel" and "Zack Miller" instead of "support@mozilla.org".

I am not interested in the names. When I want to see those, I look into the mail. I need the mail addresses!

How do I get back the addresses? (I think Netscape Mail did have that feature.)

The chosen answer to a similar question, "use Full Address column Add-on", does not work for Thunderbird 115.* and up.
