Greetings, recently our pc was attacked ,malware. A new windows program was installed. This resulted in some apps being deleted. One of which was the Firefox email. Inspite of many attempts to reinstate it I have had no success. There is great difficulty in finding what to do to reinstall. There are assumptions that I have particular information. Other than our 3 email addresses we do have any code numbers or passwords, as these to were also lost. As it has been several days since the "repair" the inability to access Firefox with historic emails is now creating a number of serious issues. I need urgent help in reinstalling our Firefox email. My inability to find that one person who I know can help is out there. The FAQ were of no help. The request how to reinstall Firefox does not appear to be a FAQ. Ross.

Setting up additional "dummy" inbox to download messages from yahoo server

Not sure of the best way to ask this. I am using TB 102.13 on a win 7 pro desktop machine.

Cox recently ported my email acount to Yahoo. There are about 100K emails in my cox inbox that were ported to yahoo. After modifying the server settings in TB so that I can use TB with the Yahoo server (I use POP settings), TB now sees all of the 100K emails as new, and each time I click the "get messages" button it starts downloading all of the 100K emails. I closed out of TB to stop the download.

I am told that in order for TB to only download actual new emails from the Yahoo server, I must let this process run. However, my official TB inbox uses about 30 filters to place incoming emails into the correct folders as they are downloaded.

All I want is to download the emails currently on the Yahoo server into a new created "dummy" inbox folder so that after the massive download, I can delete the folder and get back to being able to use TB appropriately. Can someone provide a 'how to" for doing this? TIA

Hi,

I have six IMAP email accounts that will cease to exist in a few weeks when I don't renew the domain/hosting where they reside.

Most of these accounts include invoices for purchases, and serial numbers etc that I need to have access to after the accounts will die, so just being able to read them offline. Even down the track when I inevitably build a new PC, I'll still want to have access to theses messages offline.

What is best practice for archiving or backing up these so I can still read them in future? Is there a way to archive so that I can read them in other clients in future? or I can only archive in a way that will be Thunderbird only?

Also... how do I get Thunderbird to allow me to read the messages from these accounts, without checking for new messages on these accounts, which would give error popups every time?

I've never had to do this before, and when I've searched around the results seem super confusing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In case its relevant, my current Thunderbird version is 115.12.1 and running latest update of Win 10.

I have been using Thunderbird a long time and I have emails going back about twenty years. This means that the built in import/export feature is hopeless. So I copied the entire Thunderbird folder to the new computer. I was able to transfer thousands of emails, but when I looked more closely I saw that my new Thunderbird only went back about 2 years. I would be very grateful if someone could tell a way to make it include the missing older emails.

I am trying to setup an Outlook account on Thunderbird and I get an error: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." I have an existing Outlook account which I am able to use on the Outlook app on Windows, the Android app and the web version on outlook.live.com I wish to have an e-mail client on my Linux Mint machine from which I can access my Outlook e-mails. To do so, I went to the 'Account Setup' page on Thunderbird and used these to set up my account: Your Full Name: <My Name> Email address: <email-id>@outlook.com Password: <My Microsoft password which I use to sign in to Outlook> Under Manual configuration: INCOMING SERVER Protocol: IMAP Hostname: outlook.office365.com Port: 993 Connection Security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: <email-id>@outlook.com OUTGOING SERVER Hostname: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Connection security: STARTTLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: <email-id>@outlook.com

I am sure that the password I am using is indeed the correct password. I still get an error as shown in the screenshot on the Account Setup tab. How do I resolve this issue? Thanks a lot!

Hopefully this will reach Thunderbird support though I know Mozilla no longer supports this but the Thunderbird team does.

I would like to install Thunderbird on a MacBook Pro 2024 which I assume is running Os 14.5. It is not clear to me what version, if any, can be installed. I have used Thunderbird on Windows for many years but now wish to install it on this Mac.

Thanks,

Do I install the 64bit option or 32bit ?? The installer gives me a choice.

After installation on the new M3 mac, I will be migrating my Thunderbird profile from a 2021 iMac that runs BigSur on Intel silicon.

I'm anticipating updating the iMac to Sonoma, but long experience has shown me that major s/w version upgrades are often very unfriendly to 3rd party s/w apps&data, so I wanted to get my tBird profile (all my mail history) working on the new Mac before doing the major upgrade on my iMac.

Why is the number of saved emails shown on some of the folders. How to make the shown number to dissapear? How can I take away old emails in the infolder. In the previus version was that possible. I had to make all accounts once again. Shall it be that in an update? How can I get back the previous versin? I am not pleased with this new 115-version.

I'm porting Thunderbird from my W-10 PC to a new Mac. I tried some things and found help on the net. Heere are the steps I took:

WHAT DOESN'T WORK (but I did): Removed installed Profiles folder and saved on desktop. Transferred PC Profiles folder to same place in Mac.

Deleted PC folder from Mac. Replaced Mac Profiles folder had previously moved. Deleted installs.ini and profiles.ini Started Thunderbird which created new profiles in Profiles folder.

WHAT SHOULD WORK BUT DIDN'T (after above): Removed new contents of Profiles folder. Transferred contents of PC Profiles folder to Profiles folder on Mac. Got the following message: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

What did I do wrong? Do I need to uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall? Would that solve problems?

Thank you.

I was finally forced to upgrade from win7 (which worked) to win 10 (me no likey) because of a required program which would not even install on win7. After the upgrade, which obliterated my hard drive of several important things, I am reinstalling TB. I always used an NAS directory for Thunderbird, and have email records going back nearly twenty years. I installed TB 115 and have tried several ways to get it to recognize my profile directory on the NAS to no avail. I tried copying data into the default directory the 115 install is looking at. The about:profiles shows it is looking in the correct directory, it produces a parent.lock file in that directory when I run the program. It does not give me my email, or contacts. I do not use the calendar or to-do lists.

My system is an AMD K6-6400K with 16 GB and a 500 GB drive. Though programs are loaded on the drive ALL data is stored in an NAS. There is about 375 GB available on the C drive.

I have used the cmd line to pull up profile manager, added a profile, pointed it to the data that is on the NAS, a parent lock file is created there too but it shows me no mail.

I have edited the profiles.ini file manually to have the program look at the directories, both the NAS and a local directory which has had the old files entered. Neither worked.

I tried opening TB and creating a new profile and pre-loading the info there, nothing. I've been at this for days now. I have uninstalled and removed manually all TB folders and reinstalled older versions to give that a go but without effect. I am no Luddite (Many years ago I owned a system integration, assembly and install company doing networking for the military as a civilian contractor.) but someone has to explain this to me like I am a five year old. There is no reason having my email back should be this difficult!

PLEASE give me a hand?

My TB directory appears in C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird My old data folder was on a network drive at M:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\profiles\k5zbs5az.default When I manually enter the M: address in the profiles.ini file, it "corrects" it to C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\ even though the switch 'relative' is off.

[Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/zpfeu8eu.default Default=1

[Profile0] Name=default-beta IsRelative=0 Path=C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

[Install5D388C1349709B37] Default=C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird Locked=1

Running the Mozilla application with a specific profile using command line arguments brings up the program but no mail. It creates a lock file in the correct directory, but no joy.

I get no pop up error messages.
