ALL my Local Folders are MISSING this morning!!

They were THERE last night ... GONE this morning.

I ran NO Thunderbird Updates (have selected tell me BEFORE AUTOMATIC UPDATES run) ...

Changed no VIEWS, or anything.

I just spent days updating and creating new ones. I have used Thunderbird for years.

Where are they???

How to ask for help on the Thunderbird forum????

I'm just going round and round in circles here, I click 'Get help', it links to all product forums, I get to the Tbird forum but there is NOTHING on there to click to ask a question, only to answer questions, so I've had to come here to ask...

My install of Tbird updated. Now it is not removing junk mail.

All the settings are correct; it SHOULD be moving the junk mail to the junk folder. It IS recognizing junk as junk, but my only option is to mark as "not junk". It IS junk, so that doesn't help.

I've tried, repeatedly, clicking "run filters on folder" but the junk is still sitting there. It's NOT marked as junk, unless you open it and then it has the 'not junk' option.

Normal non-junk mail is normal.

Is there any way of reverting back to an earlier version that works? I should add I have had this problem with Tbird before and it's sort of, somehow, sometimes, fixed itself, sort of thing. I'd like to take action and fix this, now.

What to do?

Under tools-accounts-junk settings it says to move all junk mail to junk folder. It IS set for that, it just doesn't actually do so.

Hello, I receive two messages repeatedly, on my Orange address. This is not the case if I use Orange mail, only with thunderbird. For the first, I put a filter that removes it, but it doesn't work with the second. This repetition saturates my messaging and prevents me from receiving other messages.

Bonjour, Je reçois deux messages de façon répétitive, sur mon adresse Orange. Ce n'est pas le cas si j'utilise Orange mail, seulement avec thunderbird. Pour le premier, j'ai mis un filtre qui le supprime, mais ça ne marche pas avec le second. Cette répétition sature ma messagerie et m'empêche de recevoir les autres messages.

Once upon a time (due to what I don't know) I lost Thunderbird (like so many) and inquired about remedies to bring it back. There were too many. NONE of them worked (or at least not w/out security problems). It will not send or receive. Tried to change up from SMTP (outgoing- google mail), ports, connection security (SSL/TLS), and never re-acquired access and not allowing me 'o sign in using password', etc., and trying to make it function only gets me a 'security alert'. Once I crawled through the back door and found a way to receive emails (only) and I had to compromise my security to do so therefore trashed that idea. A security issue may be the problem (or) google not wanting to play fair w/Mozilla, etc., (two email accounts w/gmail; (T-Bird & Microsoft). so not sure and this was a long time ago. Still have the dead T-Bird accnt. waiting for the possible fix as I really (did) like to use it as it held a bunch and could utilize a lot. So, is there, will there (ever) be a fix or are they damaged beyond repair since Mozilla backed away? (Or were they the problem?),....... or wrong version = "version": "94.0.2", (have switched) or is it just my particular accnt. prob after all? [This FYI is w/Windows 10 and other specs shared.] Questions - No answers.

Thunderbird email downloads from Comcast broken

I use Thunderbird (78.13.0 64-bit) on Linux Mint as my email client. I use Comcast as my ISP and have for the past 10 years, easily downloading emails (via iMap) to my workstation.

Until the afternoon of October 6th, when I started getting Certificate errors not allowing downloads. I have been able to send emails from this account from my workstation. I have also been able to continue to download emails from another account with no problems.

Comcast (support tiers 1, 2, and 3) has absolved themselves of all responsibility for any issues with their Certificates (which seem to have been updated on 26 Sept 2021 5pm Pacific time) and referred me to "the Thunderbird Company". Passing the buck.

Have any of you encountered this issue? Have any of you a clue how to resolve this?

Thanks for your expertise & help,

I routinely use Thunderbird to access my three gmail accounts. Google have recently introduced two-step verification on one of these accounts - after I put in my password it sends a message to my mobile asking me to verify my identity. I am now unable to get in to this account via Thunderbird, presumably because Thunderbird can't handle the extra login step. It says I need an "application-specific password". I have no problems with my other two gmail accounts - though if Google introduce two-step verification on these I'll presumably not be able to get into them via Thudnerbird either. As far as i know I'm using the latest version of Thunderbird - I certainly get auomatic updates.

Can anybody help? John
