When answering an email in a long sequence of emails, the send command results in "attaching..." and the system hangs.

Sometimes I have a long sequence of emails/reply emails, and when I try to send a next reply to that sequence and push the "send" button, this command does not result in "sending.." but in "attaching....". Problem is that the system seems to hang on "attaching" and the mail will not be sent. In order to send the replying message I have to copy the "new" text and paste it in newly set-up email message, which is quite cumbersome as I have to retype all addressees and the context of the "reply" email is lost.

When I try to access IMAP folders, I get an abbreviated error message which appears momentarily and then disappears, where do I find those messages to read?

Since the latest update I can no longer access my IMAP folders, which I could before the upgrade. I get an abbreviated error message which appears every so briefly, it's unreadable because it's available for too short a period, and it's full of ellipsis. Where do I find these error messages so I can figure out what the problem is?

When I receive, reply or compose email. I no longer am able to see or change the color of text. I select to change the text from black to Red (or any other color) and the text just stays black, The color seletor box will show the last select color, but never actually changes the text color in an email. Also in received email, when the sender has indicated their replies to me are in another color, All the text only appears as black. I never had this problem in the past, not sure what has happened. I did restart Thunderbird with add-ons disabled and this did not change the problem.

Addressing an email message

I had Thunderbird installed on my new MacBook Air last summer. Over the last month or so, when I start typing an address, instead of bringing up a menu of options that start with that letter, it brings up only the first one. So if that isn't the one I want, and I don't know the address by heart, I need to open the address book, find the address, go back into email and delete the address that Thunderbird put in the field. It doesn't always happen, but happens often enough. Any thoughts?

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.

Filters forget destination folder

Hi,

I've an issue with my filters in Thunderbird (v.38.7.0).

My filters were perfectly working for years but don't anymore. Actually, they still work for new incoming emails, but I can't run them manually on existent emails. Some pictures to explain it better: - one of my filter rule: https://lut.im/GI0EHEMmXs/gY5eNnbRoPpLQSY5.png - but despite the destination folder is specified ("repondeur" in that example), it's forgotten in the main menu: https://lut.im/RlKTXQWm7f/khIdUTrp5MOdvC2j.png The Apply (Exécuter in French) button is grey, and the destination folder not specified. And if I do choose the right destination folder for that filter rule, it appears to be applied for *all* filter rules, even if their own rule mention another destination folder. My filter rule extracted from msgFilterRules.dat: https://framabin.org/?e25dfcf5556afa29#S/VI524zrufq4/Hl2+jaxtfAx2BicglW7IZcjSKBJDc=

Could you please tell me how to solve it? :)
