Sending & Receiving gmail on Thunderbird not working

I have spent the last two days trying to re-establish receiving/sending emails on my Apple MacBook Pro using Thunderbird without success. This problem developed suddenly about 3 or 4 days ago and only affects the MacBook, not any other device (I have an iMac and two iPads). I have gone through the instructions in Thunderbird's support pages and those in Mozilla with no success.

How do I fix this please? Would the easiest way be to simply delete the account xxxxxxx.gmail.com from Thunderbird on my MacBook and re-instate it by adding it back in?

All the setting for IMAP and SMTP are correct and the username/password is identical on all my devices.

1) how do i make a signature consisting of some text as well as an image - i have created my signature in a new email, saved it as a HTML file and used it as a file for my signature..

2) but when i create a new email - it shows for like a 1 second and then disappears.. doesnt appear in replies or forwards..

Hi

Why does Thunderbird want all my personal information.......??

I'd be MORE THAN happy to make a donation to support you guys, but I am NOT happy about all the info I have to provide - and frankly I'm bot going to be bullied into giving info I don't want to. I donate to Wikipedia and they don't ask such intrusive questions - so why do you? You say that less than 2% of TB users donate - this PROBABLY the reason why they don't...!

And the fact that there is no direct link to ask somebody ask question about this subject, is really frustrating.

Thanks

Hello, I'm migrating from Outlook Express to Thunderbird 102, in Windows 8.1. I'd like to import my Address Book (.wab file) into TB 102. It seems a direct import is not possible (?). I have to convert my .wab file to a .csv file that TB can import. But doing so, I loose all the organization of my old address book (1500 contacts and tens of folders and sub-folders) ! How can I save the organization (folders) of my old address book in TB ? Tks in advance for your answers and solutions.

I had to leave Thunderbird because every time I try and create a customized signature, as much as Thunderbird excels in that area, the image storage drops the filename's path every time.

Example:

image loaded: http://rich.allcorn.us/files/headshot.png

when I go back to it: headshot.jpg


It forgets the path, so the file doesn't show up in the eMail. I purposefully put it "on the web" so it could be accessed from anywhere!

When is Thunderbird going to fix this so I can leave Apple's mail program and go back to Thunderbird?

I've been a faithful Thunderbird user since the beginning - and continue to use Thunderbird with our company's Microsoft365 deployment

until Monday of this week -- when suddenly I find that my credentials are being refused.

The symptoms

I've read and tried all the fixes proposed in the article at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/microsoft-oauth-authentication-and-thunderbird-202 (restarting thunderbird after each step, naturally)

  • have authorized Thunderbird to our Microsoft365 tenant
  • created and tried registering with a new thunderbird profile
  • have set my security settings to 'accept all cookies'
  • have used the config editor to remove 'oauth2.issuer' and 'oauth2.scope' values
  • I've checked that my account in Microsoft365 has IMAP and Authenticated SMTP enabled

So, since Monday, I've been living in hell, trying to pretend that the Microsoft Outlook app for macOS is useable, but it's practically debilitating to be forced to use that piece of software.

Can somebody please point me to another possible set of steps that I can use to try and diagnose this?

I absolutely hate myself for having to ask for help on this, but I'm at my wit's end...

Thunderbird now rejects my password

Message: Login to server outlook.office365.com with username xxxxxxx@xxxxxxx.com (my work email account set up thru GoDaddy) failed.

This is not my primary method for using my work email (Gmail's webmail interface is and, yes, still works fine). But every once in a while, I want to use the features of TBird that aren't possible with Gmail. So, I tried running TBird last weekend and got that message. So, first I tried signing in thru GoDaddy (O365 webmail) and used my existing password, and of course it worked fine. I then tried deleting the TBird account and adding it as new. TBird recognizes O365 accounts and I used those settings but, again, the password was rejected. So I went semi-nuclear and uninstalled TBird then reinstalled it. NO DIFFERENCE.

WHY is TBird rejecting my valid password - ESPECIALLY when it was working before?

Please pardon the raised voice all caps here and there - I'm really frustrated and don't understand what broke or how it broke and I can't fix it.

HELP!

I was guided to use Thunderbird by my computer repair man when Outlook Express became unavailable to me. Gods, I miss good old Outlook Express; I could do anything I wanted with that.

I'm using release 102.2.2. My domain and email are hosted at GoDaddy (GD). After moving to a new house on Aug. 30, Thunderbird (TB for short) on my MS laptop can't connect to the account at GD. I use a pw manager and get the error [Enter your password for xxxxxxx.com on outlook.office365.com:"] Entering the pw stored in my password manager for other sites is working well, including this one at Mozilla. The stored login to GD email goes to my inbox on the GD Outlook server, so I assume the GD password works there but it doesn't for the account on TB. GD email imap/pop settings are in the attached image. What can I try next?

I'd like to suppress displaying message Subject in the folder contents pane. (I'm in vertical view and would like the message contents pane to be wider. To accomplish that I'm willing to sacrifice listing the Subject in the folder contents pane. Tbird doesn't list that as a column I can select or deselect. Any ideas?

The real goal is to make the folder contents pane narrower. But it seems to not allow me to make it any narower than it is. A9(I can widen it, but that doesn't help. Is there any any to change the minimum width Thunderbird has set for that pane?
