I use Thunderbird 91.1.0 (64-bit) on Manjaro.

I want to connect to a GMail account on Thunderbird which has 2FA enabled. To do so, I created an application password on Google, and then configured everything correctly in Account Setup. When I click on "Done" after having entered my Full Name, my Email address and the Password (which is the application password freshly generated), a pop-up asking me to connect to Google appears.

However, I can't go further than the "email address or phone number" field. When I write the correct email address and press "Next", it goes back to the same field without any error message.

The picture shows in which pop-up I get stuck in. Sorry, it's in french.

Edit: I would like to add more details:

  • I had the same issue with Thunderbird on a updated Ubuntu machine recently (sorry, I do not know the version).
  • I tried to replace the "Password" by my account's password (instead of the generated application password) but it didn't work either.

Upgrade to 91.1.0 from 78.14.0 - TB not showing

I have over 200GB of emails under my profile folder. Been using TB for a long time. Tried to manually upgrade to 91.1.0 from 78.14.0. (I tried uninstall 78.x.x and install 91.x.x fresh as well and tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) Windows 10

After the upgrade, and I launch 91.x.x, TB UI does not show up and there are several processes running. I thought it is trying to perform some conversion and left the machine on for 6 hours, but still not showing up. When I uninstall 91.x.x and install 78.x.x back, I am able to see all of mails again (I need to use -- allow-downgrade option)

I also tried to delete all .msf files, but still the same issue with 91.x.x..

Any idea what I need to do to upgrade to 91.x.x?

Hi community, I would appreciate your help. I have been a Thunderbird user and advocate for more than 10 years. A few week ago I purchases a shiny new Dell (Windows 7, 64-bit) similar to my old laptop, and have attempted to set it up completely for my personal work use. Everything was going smoothly until I downloaded and installed the latest version of Thunderbird (91.1.0). While setting up my email accounts (gmail and office365) I am getting a persistant error "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." For all mail accounts I have manually configured to exactly the same as my previous laptop, as below (for gmail).

Protocol: IMAP Hostname: imap.gmail.com Port: 993 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: *@gmail.com

Outgoing server Hostname: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2 Username: *@gmail.com

I managed to get through the authentication process (boxes asking for password and giving Thunderbird permission) through gmail (and office365 when using another account) to allow access to my accounts more than a dozen times. And yet the same error code occurs ("Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password.") I have set Thunderbird to accept cookies. I have disable the low security app settings in gmail. I have allowed Thunderbird App in Window Defender security. I have more than triple checked my password and email details, and still nothing. When I click "Advance config" to force account set up nothing changes, then when I click again I get the error message "Incoming server already exists."

I have uninstalled Thunderbird 91, reinstalled an older versiosn, cleared previous profiles, etc etc, all to no avail.

I have attempted to read through this forum to find a solution or a work around, but nothing has helped to this point.

Finally, my older laptop running Thunderbird 78.14.0.(32-bit) on the same network continues to work perfectly, sending and receiving emails via gmail and office365 accounts presumably all with the same settings and authentications. Please tell me what I am missing!!!

Your help would be much appreciated. The Saint

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.

I bought a new desktop PC with Win 8.1 and installed Firefox and Thunderbird. Then, I tried to configure the e-mail account manually (as IMAP) following the instructions provided here: https://support-en.upc-cablecom.ch/app/answers/detail/a_id/22 , but failed to configure the smtp outgoing mail server correctly (I could receive mail, but not send them). Subsequently, I deleted that account. Then, I launched the automatic mail setting tool provided by UPC Cablecom under the link http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/content/dam/www-upc-cablecom-ch/Support/executables/upc-cablecom-email-assistent.exe and it did successfully setup the account, however as a POP3 account. As I was not happy with it, I deleted the POP3 incoming mail server (and lost the received e-mails, of course...) and retried a manual setup. Doing so, I obtained an incoming IMAP mail account plus two outgoing SMTP server (comparing them, I also understood the configuration mistake I had done the first time). I then deleted the manual SMTP server as the automatically setup server worked properly. In this context, both receiving and sending e-mail worked OK. However, the next time I started the computer, the e-mail account disappeared and Thunderbird asked me to setup a new account again. I successfully set it up manually one more time, but the same problem surfaced again at the next boot, the e-mail account was gone...!

I download Thunderbird from the Mozilla site, version 24 for mac os x but when I tried to install it I got the error message - Cannot use this version on this copy of OS X.

I managed to download and install Thunderbird 3.1 and have set it up but I get a message about that version becoming obsolete soon.

I need an alternative to Mac Mail as it is hanging when trying to send e-mails. Thunderbird appears to have cured this but if I cannot update it I wll be no better off.

Also I would like Thunderbird to import settings, messages, etc from mac mail, would this happen with a newer version?

Thanks
