I recently installed Thunderbird after my hard drive crashed and burned. I now receive the same message popping up at every start-up. Thunderbird is set as my default email program. I've checked skip integration and set as default. I've looked through every program I can think of to find a conflict without success. When I tried the suggestion above, I did not find system when opening the fly-out near my clock. When accessing system through my control panel, I do not see the option for default apps. I've already looked through default programs in the control panel. I looked through internet options and set Thunderbird as my default. What am I missing? Thanks for any help!

While there are continuous updates to Thunderbird, none of them gives a 64 bit option for Windows. Linux has 64 bit, so why not a 64 bit Windows version? Windows has been 64 bit since 8.1 and it would be nice if Thunderbird could catch up to modern times.

I don't want all of my email to be kept online in gmail. I see you can back it up in mbox and import that into thunderbird. I would then proceed to culling my emails to 1 year's worth on my Gmail online.

My question is: If I would make an mbox archive of the new collection of email in 6 months time and import that into thunderbird, would it delete the present database of emails or would it add to the database?

All my email disappeared from my Yahoo email inbox. So I created a Thunderbird email account which automatically mirrors my Yahoo email. I thought this would be a backup, in case all my yahoo email disappears again. But I am no so sure this is really a backup since the emails on Thunderbird might also disappear someday (for reasons which are entirely beyond me).

So in view of the foregoing, I wanted to store all my emails to my hard drive as a backup, without having to cut and paste the content of each message. Is there any way of doing that for emails on Thunderbird (or Yahoomail)?

I don't think the Archive feature is satisfactory since that just stores mail on another Thunderbird or Yahoo server, and again, that could be lost, and there will be no way to retrieve it.

Thanks!

Dear all,

I'm (once again) quitting my job so my institutional email will end soon (I use TB for both personal and professional emails). I'm not found of transferring everything to a permanent personal email account (say gmail or yahoo for instance) so I'm looking for a way to "archive" the account i.e. being able to read the mail in TB while not trying to get new messages.

For some technical details, the account is accessed via IMAP and is stored in TB with the mbox format (the maildir format was not available when I configured it).

This situation happened before: I just let the accounts as this (disabling the automatic update) and for a while it worked but after some time (with many updates of TB and some Ubuntu upgrades too), the mail became unreadable and the folder became filled with thousands (literally) of empty files so I finally destroyed them.

So I was wondering if there is a procedure to mark an account as "inactive" and still being able to read the mail in TB. If not possible, maybe I can create a new local account and copy the mbox files in it to be able to read them again.

Thanks in advance!

I've just installed Thunderbird and tried to unify 5 accounts as I inbox, but don't seem to have done this. 1 didn't do anything (I think it's set to IMAP) and all I have on the left apart from this is the one accoutn I meant to be the main one, but noting appears in the Local Folders section, as it says it should. This isn't what's supposed to happen, right? Can i undo it or do have to spend another half day uninstalling it and starting again, after fighting my way though the various settings for each email address?

I'm importing .eml files to a specific email account I added in Thunderbird. Although it works with the ImportExportTools add-on it is painfully slow. It takes about 2 seconds per email and I have to import hundred thousands of them. While importing Thunderbird constantly sends data to the mail server from that account. Is it putting all imported messages to the mail server? Which of course it shouldn't do.

I have a current account with a local service provider using a domain name. This will be closed within a few weeks.

I have now opened an account with another service provider for myself and plus a sub account for my wife. This has been sent to a number of people with the advice that it will be active following the closing of the domain address. Our concern is that some of the people we have advised may already be using the new addresses./

Is it possible for us to add the add the new account to our existing instance of Thunderbird without disturbing teh domain addressed accounts?

If so how do we do it?
