I upgraded to TB 102.0 today. After I checked my settings and updated my plugins, it seemed to be working fine. However, later in the day I noticed a message that TB was downloading about 880 messages in my main inbox. Of course, there are not nearly that many new messages. I searched and did not notice any new emails in the listing. However, I found that two recent messages had been corrupted in some way. I enclosed an image. When I open the message, there is not even the normal header with the different choices. There is just what appears to be a bunch of information that has been mushed together in place of this email. I found two emails like that. I right clicked on the two, and deleted the corrupted messages. Then I compacted files. For a moment, things seemed OK. Some other emails near those that would not display worked again. However, shortly after I did another compact folders, I got the same message -- downloading the same 880 emails. Now I have two new messages corrupted.

Please help! I have no idea how to stop this corruption. This account is hosted on Google Workspace. I have it set to sync only the last 90 days of messages.

I've used Thunderbird for years. After the most recent update in late July 2020 (78.0.1), Thunderbird no longer works. It will not download new mail. It does connect to the IMAP server but then gets to "checking mail server capabilities" and hangs with the spinning circle indefinitely.

I have not done anything to Thunderbird, I just let it install the update. I did not install updates to any other program on my PC. I'm running Windows 10 on a laptop that is about 4 months old. Thunderbird worked absolutely fine before the 78 update.

I am not experiencing any connection issues or problems with any other running programs.

I have tried the following fixes already: 1. Checking my account configuration and confirming it is correct with my email provider. I have the correct ports listed and correct server names. 2. Changing the timeout setting from 100 to 2000. 3. I am able to access my email on my provider's Web interface so this isn't a password issue. There is no CAPTCHA required either. 4. I checked my anti-virus/anti-malware program (Kapersky). Thunderbird and Mozilla are both listed in the "allowed apps" list. I tried removing them both and re-adding, as well as searching for other variations of Mozilla/Thunderbird to add. I also tried Kapersky's "refresh" function. 5. I tried restarting my computer. 6. I tried rebooting my wireless Internet connection. 7. I tried using Thunderbird's "start in safe mode with apps disabled" function. 8. I tried re-installing 78. 9. I tried clearing caches and cleaning with CC Cleaner.

Nothing has worked. Something in the 78.0.1 update has messed things up. Thank you for looking into this.

Thunderbird 78.2.2 very slow for 10 minutes after startup. Cpu hog when started online (15-20% CPU and flashes of 'Not responding' but nothing to download) but runs normally when started offline and then switched to online. (Win10, 3 imap and one pop3)

Hello, My Thunderbird 32bit installation upon Microsoft 10 64bit installation just upgraded itself to 7.2.2 and produced a severe performance problem after initial startup. The response to attempts to navigate through the folders is very slow. The Microsoft Task Manager shows that Thunderbird is constantly busy 15-20% Cpu usage and flashes of 'Not responding' although the program has nothing to download.

There 4 accounts configured (3 imap and one pop3) and there are lots of folders with stored emails. There is one Lightening calendar configured.

The performance issue continues for about 10 minutes and then disappears so the system becomes as responsive as it was before the upgrade i.e. instantaneous.

I cannot tell you what release I was on before the upgrade. Any suggestions Patrick

Problems sending email with Thunderbird and Comcast

For approximately two weeks now I am sometimes able to send email in the early morning, but after several hours I receive the error message attached regarding excessive failed authentications. It seems to reset every 24 hours. Comcast has been no help. I am connecting to the Comcast servers through the Charter/Spectrum network at my second home in North Carolina. Since it works sometimes it seems unlikely this is actually a configuration or Thunderbird issue, but I'd love to hear any ideas. Tried disabling ESET NOD32 15.0.23.0 antivirus, no change Thunderbird version 91.5.1 (64 bit), but it hasn't worked properly for several updates, and as mentioned above I don't think the problem is necessarily in Thunderbird. OS is Windows 10, just updated this morning to build 19041

Each time I select the subfolders Drafts, Archives, Bulk Mail, Trash and several other subfolders, I get the error message below. Sometimes, but not always, when I select the subfolder Sent, I get the error message below.

Thunderbird Server imap.aol.com has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem.

When this message comes up, Thunderbird will not display the contents of the selected subfolder.

If I restart Thunderbird, it will work properly for a time then begin displaying the message again.

Sometimes, not always, when I am going through the content of my Bulk Mail folder, I get this error message: Authentication failure while connecting to Server imap.aol.com.

What's going on here and how can I fix these two problems? Any help would be appreciated. Please reply to <... @aol.com>

Thank you.

Hello everyone, I'm using Thunderbird 68.6.0 32 bit on a pc with windows 10 64 bit. I always receive the error "Unable to access the IMAP server; maybe you exceeded the maximum number of connection in cache..." after Thunderbird starts working, but when I click on the button "Get mail" everything works fine. I tried to change the maximum number of connections in cache, to uncheck the option "get mail at the start", "check messages every 10 minutes". Nothing changed. I think that is a problem of yahoo or thunderbird itself. Could I do something to solve this issue?

Thanks

I use compuserve.com (part of AOL) and Yahoo.com on Thunderbird. All are owned by the same company as far as I know. This morning Thunderbird reports compuserve server wrong authentication type, TB is set to OAuth2 which is correct and has been working. If I access the AOL/compuserve site directly through Firefox there is no problem. The yahoo account works just fine. I don't know how to tell where the issue is. Any thoughts?

We've been using thunderbird for more than 20 years now at work. It has proven itself reliable and production ready. I am sorry to say in the last 5 years or so every update has been worse than the previous one becoming the least reliable piece of software ever. Constant crashing ie 8-10 times a day, lack of smtp communication with the servers, and other constant issues basically make this unusable.

PLEASE forget about aesthetics and concentrate on reliability.

How to recover "Local Folder"

Hi,

It is the second time that the following happens to me: I updated Thunderbird 68 to 78 and all my datas are lost, especially e-mails, calendars and local folders.

I do not worry about my e-mail (which are on the provider's server Imap), or my calendars (which are on my phone), but I really worry about my local folders, as I do not have any back-up of the e-mails located in this folder.

Could you please help me to recover the local folder and all the e-mails in it?

Thanks.
