Placing a copy of sent mails to multiple (two) folders?

I am currently using this feature in Thunderbird 8, where you go to Account Settings, and for each account, you can choose Copies & Folders, and from there "When sending messages, automatically" - "Place a copy in" - ""Sent" folder on": ... (see attached image), and this feature works great for me (basically, whenever I send emails on the "blue" account on screenshot, they get saved in the Sent folder of the "red" account at send time).

However, what I would like to do, is that whenever I send a mail from the blue account, it gets saved to *two* different folders at same time - as an example, whenever I send an email from the "blue" account, they would get saved:

  • On the "Sent" folder of the "red" account; AND
  • On some other folder of the "green" account

Is there a setting in Thunderbird that will allow me to do that - and if not, is there an addon that does this?

No longer able to download new mail into the Intray. Suspect the Intray file is corrupted. Can I reset this file?

This is the error message:

'Unable to write the email to the mailbox. Make sure the file system allows you write privileges, and you have enough disc space to copy the mailbox.'

Another user on this laptop (ie my wife) does not have this issue.

If I open the Intray file with Notepad I can see message content deleted long ago. I always keep my Intray very small - why is the size over 10MB?

I am unable to move the complete Thunderbird profile from a Win 7 PC to Win 8.1 PC.

In the past years, I have used the same approach to successfully migrate Thunderbird profile from XP to Win 7 (two PCs), from Win 7 to Win 8.1 PC for my wife. We really like and appreciate Thunderbird over these many years. However, I need help on moving the profile to my Win 8.1.

I have on my Toshiba lap top Win 7 Home Premium. I want to move this Thunderbird Profile to my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook with Win 8.1. Both PCs have Thunderbird 38.7.0.

I have always used the Manually moving files method documented in: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer

1. On Win 8.1, I installed Thunderbird 38.7.0. Then restarted computer. 2. I pasted the contents of TB profile from Win 7. 3. I turned off Norton Security on Win 8.1 before starting Thunderbird.

I started Thunderbird on Win 8.1 with the following results: • The Address Book with All Addresses (about 400) were migrated. • All emails (139) were migrated. . • No user email folders were migrated. This is the only problem that I know of. I could send and receive emails from my Win 8.1 to my other computers. • I have tried the above procedure multiple times with the same result.

The volume of data in Thunderbird Profile is: 435 MB total, 804 files, 87 folders. Does the size of the Profile affect the migration to another PC?

What do I need to do to make this migration to Win 8.1 on my HP Notebook?

Thanks much, Ken

Many of my files in Email won't open, I'm guessing because there is not enough room to juggle the files around. I get an error message 'message may contain a virus or there is not enough disk space.' I have plenty of disc space. That message shows even trying to send/receive to myself. I suspect I need to increase the size of my Sent Folder. The accumulated archives go back to the 1990s.... and no, I don't want to get rid of them. Can I get into the defaults to make those files larger?

I am using Firefox for my emails. I have lots of folders on the side of my email page. I need to back them up, but do not know how. Some of them have attachements as well. I do not know how to do it . As it is the start of a New Year I want to keep the old ones. I don't know if I can save the email page as well as the attachement in one go or if it is separate. Thank you

No matter how many emails i clear from the inbox and move to my local folder section, i keep getting the same error message when i click "get messages". The error says it is full and i need to clear the inbox. Very frustrating since i have done that. I am using Thunderbird Email system.

Any help is appreciated! Shelly


Edit: This was posted in the Firefox section. I will move it to the Thunderbird Section. That should not affect the post's link, but will make it easier for Thunderbird experts to find J99.
