Hi;

Have Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit). Tried importing items, (EML format), from Windows Live Mail v2011 Build 15.4.

Used Thunderbird's built in Import Tool. Kept getting: "Can't find other e-mail programs" even though Live Mail is still installed.

Downloaded importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb.xpi AND importexporttools-3.3.2-sm+tb(1).xpi. Both show "Not for v78.0.1".

Would someone kindly point me in the right direction so that I can Import Windows Live Mail Accounts & E-Mails into Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit)?

Thank You.

Andy

My old mail account is POP3 only. Incoming, POP3, mail.tpg.com.au, 110, STARTTLS, Normal Password Outgoing SMTP, smtp.tpg.com.au, 587, STARTTLS, Normal Password After many attempts Thunderbird 78 failed to add this new account.

After removing ver.78 an old ver.68 was installed and the new account was added without any problems on the first try using the settings shown above.

Does this indicate that Thunderbird v.78 is no longer compatible as a POP3 client or is this a serious bug?

I'm in the middle of migrating to a new laptop (WIn 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro). The old one has TB 68.10.0, with Lightning. When I installed TB on the new laptop, it gave me 78. I had copied the profile folders already.

I'm having trouble with the (Google) calendar. First, it gave me no data/didn't sync and wouldn't let me do anything. I also tried importing the old one just to see, but that crashed TB. I tried unsubscribing, but that removed the calendar. I tried setting it up the old way, New, Network and pasting in the private Google link. It keeps reverting to Read Only, every time I try to do something. Then TB hangs up, doesn't display properly, and there's no response for several minutes when I attempt to close it.

I want to go back to the version that is on the old laptop, but I can't find downloads for any previous versions. Where are they?

Hello, I understand that the TB78 version manages profiles and their data using a new format, as this page suggests: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1307013 "This is because version 78 reformatted all the .mab files as .sqlite files."

I don't have the TB68 installation file and it's not available on the "https://www.thunderbird.net/fr/" site. So I am forced to download TB78, the only one available on the site. Why not offer the older versions? Weird. My question: How do I get my TB68 profile directory back on my new hard drive with the TB78 imposed? You have to necessarily use a "downgraded" version with the command line "thunderbird.exe-P--allow-downgrade" (knowing that another impossible page to find explained that the setting "-P" launches the profile manager and that this is not useful for a single profile)? I prefer to get my TB68 profile back and not degrade the future TB78. This should be possible since this seems to be done automatically when TB updates take place automatically. But how to do it manually?

That's a little long. But no longer than my despair tonight. Thank you for your help

I have copied my profile from the very small C: drive (W10) to the D: drive (SD card) on my Notebook and created a new profile to use the copied data. Now Thunderbird opens using the data on that D: drive.

Naturally I now want to free up the space on my C: drive, but I get very confused about folders and profiles in TB. What is it safe to delete from the C: drive without impacting on anything else?

I've seen other posts about losing everything when doing this - which would be a bit of disaster since it took a whole afternoon of trial and error to set everything up! (Although I do have full backups!)

Could anyone advise me? (Baby steps please!)

I was using TB 5 and upgraded to TB68. When I hit "Reply" on a message in the main Inbox, the From: field is properly filled in automatically. Also if I compose a brand new message it is filled in. But if I try to reply to a message that is in one of my Local Folders, the From: field is blank. After reading through the forum I checked and my main identity was not the default, so I changed it to be the default, but that did not help. (I have closed and restarted TB several times since then, so that is not the issue either).

A few days you asked for approval of enhancing the quality of your service. I think I did offer $37 (in 2 operations of #35 + $2). As a result you have reduced the spaces for SEND from 3 to 1 only. I would be obliged if you restore the former set of 3 spaces for sending emails. I am unhappy with your reduction of the service which I have been using for many years.

I have several Gmail accounts. I set one up as a full POP3 and SMTP new account in TB. Both incoming and outgoing work just fine.

The second account I only entered as a new sender in the "OUTGOING SERVER (SMTP) SETTINGS". That one doesn't show up in the list of Write> choices.

Do I have to create a full POP3 and SMTP account for each Gmail account in order to use them for outgoing mail?

The suggested items re migration from gmail do not seem to work at present. My provider, Telus, changed from their own email set-up to Googles gmail. I guess they gained a couple of bucks. The promised transfer did not work. Their techy spent quite a bit of time with me on it and could not achieve the "seamless" transfer either. So I could use some help with that. Just for keeping my address list and calendar, I would prefer to stick with Thunderbird. (At my age, 82, change can be a bit more difficult.) My email address is (still) goetzds@telus.net.

I'm using profiles, multiple profiles after getting new PCs . Each profile has multiple accounts ( same accounts) but different date ranges. I'm trying to organize emails by which pc was most in use during a particular timeframe. so I have 3 profiles and they seem to be working OK. But I only started the old ones up and saw that it was working but getting new mail - I don't want new mail in the old accounts/profiles. They're just there to give some historical help if I need old info. My new profile is getting new mail OK.

can I block the old thunderbird profiles from getting new mail? How? I would like to block them without having to "use"/open them so the mail collection process doesn't clutter them up with new mail.
