I Love ThunderBird...its by far the best mail program....I just updated to the latest version 68.1 and everything came across just fine and i was able to get one of my very important add ons....Import/Export tools. However the other vital add on Theme and font changer is not available for this version. The size of the menus is so small as to be almost impossible to read on a small laptop. Any chance of an updated version the the Theme and Font Add On? Thanks

After recovering my email and calendar from a MozBackup file (I know, but it was all I had when the other computer s*** the bed) I have several funky things happening but missing the ability to allow (or not) remote content is the most annoying. None of the fixes I have found have worked. Is there a way to set all Configurations to default? Does anyone have a better fix?

Hello

All my folders with their names and email lists have suddenly reverted to really small font (I can still control font size in emails)

I think I managed this aspect with the theme font and size changer add-on in the past which is still installed but no longer visible in the tool bar.

As others on their website state, this add-on suddenly stopped working for them and became invisible. I've tried ta reinstall but that hasn't worked

The problem now is that the font is so bloody small that I can barely read it.

I just wish Mozilla would work a bit better with add-ons. We really need some of them but they seem to become redundant with every new update. It's really frustrating at the best of times but this is a disaster for me! I need to see emails for my work.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Message filters have always worked well for me, but suddenly I cannot get a simple filter like so many others to work.

I want a combination of From address and Subject to cause an email deletion. Most of my filters work this way.

No matter what part of the Subject I use, I can't get this to work. Yes, I know how to set up a filter. I have many filters and they have always worked. But now this one won't work.

What do I do?

I assume it's about the updates but haven't found reference. Now the "choices" are default black or Typing in a "color". I use colors for ongoing conversational emails- the readability of the color is important as well as choice. I also write messages akin to greeting cards to recipients wherein I use color varieties. How do I replace the new font color choice with the old?

Dear Thunderbird community,

I am using a gmail account with Thunderbird. My quota on the gmail imap server is 95%, and I urgently need to free space.

However, I can't understand why is it so. When I receive the mail, I regularly download the mails to Local Folders, leaving only a few emails in the Gmail Inbox and Outbox. The same few emails are also visible from the Gmail account when I access it online ... so why the quota is so high?

In the folder properties (imap://gianluca.polgar%40gmail.com@imap.googlemail.com/INBOX), it says that there are only 79 messages (21.4 MB on disk).

How can I free space from the imap server, and at the same time keep all the emails in the local folders (that is, in my computer)? How should I set my gmail account settings, in order to do so?

Thank you so much for your help.

Gianluca

Default e-mail address for replies

I have a rather strange problem. I have 8 e-mail accounts in my Thunderbird, and I have 5 different "inboxes". So I have a main one that pulls from one account (we'll call this account #1), then my second one pulls from 3 accounts, the third pulls from 2 accounts, and the 4th and 5th each pull from a single account. I did this by using the Advanced button under Account Settings -> Server Settings to group the e-mail accounts such that they are associated with a certain inbox. There are no problems with e-mail getting to the right place when downloading them. I also use Get Selected Mails and Manually Sort Folders. The only other add-ons are Lightning and Smiley Fixer.

In most cases, when I click "reply" to a message, it will show the "from" field as the e-mail account to which the message was addressed, but this is not always the case.

For instance, on a message sent to account #1, if I just do "reply" it will insert the proper "from" address. If I select "reply all" to the same message, I get a different address - one from the 3rd inbox group, and not one I want to use! The address is uses is not the last one that was set up either, I have added the 4th and 5th inboxes since then.

Sometimes, when I am looking at a message in my second inbox, and I click to reply to a message sent to account A within that inbox, it will flip the "from" to account B.

I haven't summed up all of the issues I'm seeing, but they are all very similar. I'm sure that if I went through all the iterations I could figure out a pattern but I don't have the time. I've looked in the config file and there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it. In mail.accountmanager.accounts setting, the order of the accounts seems a bit random and intermingled. The main inbox is the first one, the second is one e-mail from the 2nd inbox, the third is an e-mail from the 3rd inbox, the fourth and fifth are e-mails from the 2nd inbox, the sixth is an e-mail from the 3rd inbox, the seventh and eighth don't seem to have an ID associated with them, and the ninth and tenth are the 4th and 5th accounts - the most recently set up.

I'm wondering if I have to just re-install Thunderbird and set all this up again from scratch because something seems seriously hosed here. The only thing that looks correct is that account 1 is ID 1 and server 1, and that is set as the default account in every way I can see but it doesn't work like that. All the other accounts/ID/server numbers are out of order, which I'm sure doesn't matter.

When I select "Edit as New Message" in Thunderbird (v52.9.1) on a Mac, the message editor comes up in html mode even if I have set everything to plain text.

I have read all the articles on this and done all the things people have recommended including messing with Advanced options, account settings, etc. However, none of these solutions work.

Attached is a screenshot showing the problem. The first screenshot shows my inbox. The second shot shows that "Edit as new message" comes up in html mode.

Please advise.

I created the folder called "h". I called earthlink and they couldn't fix it. Told me to call Mozilla. The number was no help (no actual person).

I have the folder called "Local Folders" which has subfolders of Inbox, Sent, etc etc. I think it's the default,

On a direct line directly below Local Folders is the folder I created, simply called "h"."h" is NOT a subfolder - it has same status as Local Folders above it. I can't delete it. When I go to account settings and highlight "h" I go to bottom where it says "account actions" , the "remove account" is grayed out.

The earthlink chat people took over my computer and still couldn't fix it. They spent an hour and finally gave up. (They made some changes when in control of my computer and I had to remind them to undo those changes which was annoying)

For awhile now I've been unable to get the "Automatically delete junk mail older than X days" function to operate properly in my account settings. I currently have it set to 14 days, but junk emails older than 14 days don't delete.

I've tried going through Junk > Properties > Retention Policy to set the limit there, but the result is the same. The junk emails that are older than the set time limit don't delete.

I've tried quitting and reopening the program, but that doesn't help.

I've tried reinstalling the program, but that only seems to help for awhile before this function stops working again.

Occasionally (I don't know why), I'll find that those junk emails with dates older than the set limits will delete themselves, but this doesn't happen very often. In fact, I can't remember the last time it deleted them.

Suggestions?
