I used to be able to see all my inboxes in one folder. Since the upgrade, a couple of my inboxes aren't showing up. I have to expand all of my inboxes to see if I have new messages. I missed some important emails because they always used to come to my unified inbox. How do I get them all in one unified inbox?

I've been using Thunderbird for a long long time and have always had many imap accounts setup, including a Yahoo Mail account.

As of just the other day (I believe Tues, June 7, 2022), suddenly and unexpectedly, Thunderbird 91.10.0 (64-bit) began showing ALL of my mail folders in the Yahoo account on the server, when I have always had many folders hidden (in unsubscribed state).

I have Thunderbird installed on 4 computers, and, as I launched TB on each of them, the displayed Yahoo folders updated to all folders on each computer (I had originally set up my profile on one computer and then later copied it to each of the others).

When I go into the TB yahoo account settings to re-unsubscribe and apply the settings and then restart TB, all folders remain showing... I cannot seem to get TB to once again unsubscribe to the folders I'm not interested in seeing in TB.

For reference, other imap accounts I have configured in the same profile remain with the same subscribed/unsubscribed settings I've always had.

If anyone has any ideas or explanations or a recommended fix, I'm all ears! ty!

Hi everybody,

is there any add-on for version 102.5 (Win 10 Home), which can delete attachments from multiple e-mails at one time? I used Attachment Extractor before but unfortunately doesn't work on this version. Is there any other option?

I know, there is a possibility to downgrade Thunderbird to the 88 version, but it is the last solution for me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, hope you're well!

Is there any way to stop this program from relentlessly deleting (important work) emails out my inbox? I have tried every solution posed online when I search the issue, but low and behold every once in a while, when I restart the program, there goes another bunch of emails into the ether? I've looked into the advanced mail.purge settings amongst many others, nothing works, it even deletes 'starred' emails despite that check box being ticked.

I really love every other aspect of this email client, but this is infuriating, can someone please help?

I'm running it in IMAP, because you know, synced email over various platforms is way easier.......at least it should be.

Any knowledge is hugely appreciated, I'm on the brink of switching to a far inferior platform, and really don't want to.

Thanks in advance.

This has been an issue for a while since 102. I've seen others posting about it and there hasn't been any answer yet that reportedly works.

Since 102 and every update following, Thunderbird shows only a dark mode (black/dark grey) background to all the white spaces unless you are using either the default Thunderbird theme, or the Mozilla Light theme. However other themes I have were all previously light-mode and now they are broken.

I have already checked a) hardware acceleration being off/on b) Settings>Language & Appearance> and played with the Use System Colors, Override the Colors Specified.

None of these settings had any effect on any of the themes that have been broken by this.

Attaching screens to illustrate how the 'dark mode' on non-dark themes looks, and the difference between the two Mozilla light modes. I've showed the two default themes that are light mode, and how that looks, and one custom theme exemplifying how the 'dark mode' looks incorrect. Message windows still display as light, but not the rest of the dark space.

It would be nice if this could get fixed. I like my old themes and haven't been able to use one for a long time because of this.

I use Thunderbird with two different ISPs (one with multiple email accounts), which require different outgoing mail servers. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings box, one of these is set as the default - i.e. in bold with (Default) after the server address. I can change which of the the email accounts is the default (and therefore its outgoing server) using the Set Default button to the right of this box, but I can find no way to deselect any of them from being the default. How do you do this?

Running 64 bit 102.50 in WIN 7 PRO I have two accounts. Thunderbird confuses the user id's of the two accounts such that when sending from account 2 it uses the user id of account 1 and thus fails. I cannot configure the SMTP servers to prevent this, cannot clearly differentiate credential configuration for the default vs non-default SMTP servers
