Recently I was required to change my password for my att.net account (sbcglobal.net email). After that I cannot receive emails from that account. Thunderbird is able to retrieve emails from my google email, but not the att.net account. I keep receiving the attached message.

I have tried resetting the password under "Saved Passwords" without success. I have verified using the same incoming and outgoing server as before. Also tried going back to att.net and changing the password back to the original without success. When I contacted ATT they seemed to indicate that the server settings were correct. I even tried to remove the account and entering it again in Thunderbird.

There is a lot of useful information available that users have submitted, however with my limited understanding the suggestions haven't solved the problem. It seems that the problem is with the account settings within Thunderbird, but can't seem to find it. Any help would be appreciated.

At my age (83) change presents problems I find hard to fix. TB78 deleted both my address book and all custom colors. I had an address book that I built over a period of 15 years. I had custom colors for the main display page of new emails (which is not white). White is hard on my eyes and difficult to read from. Without getting fancy and technical (like importing from Becky interhet mail, never hard of it, or changing a profile (????) please help me to restore the missing stuff. Thank you, Shell

Dear Sirs,

Is there any possibility to have the colored icons back in Thunderbird 78.x?

It helped me a lot to differentiate between folders and other stuff. Now with the black and white display only, it is for me more difficult.

After the most recent update, 78.4.0, I cannot receive emails. I can send emails. Also the folder icons changed from yellow to white. Erols.com (RCN) is my email host. I can still receive emails on my phone and through mail2web.com. I have tried turning off firewalls, both Webroot and the native one in Windows 10. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both latest version and an earlier version. I checked to make sure the proper password was still saved. When I hit the Get Messages button, there is a "Connected to pop.rcn.com..." in the bottom pane where the "unread" and "total" are listed. It just vanishes after a bit. Anybody got a cure?

I have just now set up the new version of Thunderbird. I must have made some mistake in setting up my new account. I can enter the "to" from my address book but cannot figure out how to send "cc" to multiple addresses. I can send with one cc recipient but can't figure out how to include multiple cc recipients.

I love Thunderbird - it is a great email system.

As you can guess from such a fundamental question, I am quite elderly and not a teckie.

Any chance that one of the youngsters among your volunteers can help an old man out?

Hi;

Have Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit). Tried importing items, (EML format), from Windows Live Mail v2011 Build 15.4.

Used Thunderbird's built in Import Tool. Kept getting: "Can't find other e-mail programs" even though Live Mail is still installed.

Downloaded importexporttools_ng-4.1.0-tb.xpi AND importexporttools-3.3.2-sm+tb(1).xpi. Both show "Not for v78.0.1".

Would someone kindly point me in the right direction so that I can Import Windows Live Mail Accounts & E-Mails into Thunderbird v78.0.1 (32bit)?

Thank You.

My Thunderbird updated today, and suddenly all of my emails are showing white text on black backgrounds, except for those incoming emails that have their own color schemes. In those cases, the text appears pretty dark against the black background. Changing themes doesn't seem to make a difference. Was there something in the update that made this happen? How do I fix it?

Hi, I'm using Thunderbird 68.8.0 (32-bit) on Windows 10. My work account is based off gmail. I tried switching to the dark theme- but it seems the emails themselves still appear in a white background with the dark text. Tested for plain text mails, calendar invites as well.

Does anyone know of a workaround to get a true dark mode on actual emails as well? Thanks !

Hi folks. I am quite angry. Again. I was not aware enough and allowed to install newest Thunderbird version. I realized after restart that only ONE of my plugins works. I am quite addicted on some of them. THIS happened at least 2nd time... Now i have to pray, that authors will modify his plugins. I am quite sure that i am not alone. Best of all: I immediately tried to downgrade back to previous version, but that version refuses to run, because it detected that newer version already modified something in system. 1)Is there some trick how to cheat that situation? I used standard approach: backed up my profile data, uninstalled new version and installed last working version. 2)Is there any possibility to convince authors to add this feature?: BEFORE install of newer version will installer check which plugins (and other consequences) will be nonfunctional an ask user if he really want to proceed? It should be simple, because it offers identical functionality AFTER install. But in that moment is already all crippled and there is no way back. Martin

Step 1: create a new gmail account at Google. Step 2: verify the new account works via the web interface Step 3: log out and log back in to that account via the web to verify login credentials Step 3: create a new Thunderbird account using that same new email address

See the video below for the problem. I hope there is a work-around or a solution. This problem appears in both new accounts and existing accounts where the password has recently been changed.

No settings chg. since 2016, using win7 professional, google. Account. is thru att.net. Upgraded with the security key as suggested in prev. TB messages. Worked fine until today. Disabled Norton & win protection. No help, all settings are the same for years: try to send mail, dialog box pops up: Login to server outbound.att.net with username xxx@att.net failed. 3 choice boxes: 'retry'/'enter new password'/'cancel.' Created a new PW when I acquired the new security key code from att. Settings: outbound.att.net (default) /port 465/SSL-TLS/Normal PW. IMAP MAIL SERVER: imap.mail.att.net /port 993 Have entered correct PW in dialog box many times with the same result. Have no idea what is wrong in sending mail only.

Bonjour,

A chaque connexion de Thunderbird, je suis obligé de ressaisir les mots de passe de mes différentes adresses + mot de passe principal alors que j'ai bien coché la case "utiliser le gestionnaire de mot de passe" ...

J'ai tenté une désinstallation de Thunderbird et réinstallation mais cela n'a rien fait.

Je suis sous windows 10.

Merci de votre aide.

I am a new user to Thunderbird and have downloaded and installed the latest version. I am trying to create mailing lists from my contacts and have followed the guidance given here online. If I create a new Mailing List I cannot add contacts to it by dragging and dropping. If I pick up a contact, I can drag and drop it to other folders but if I try to drop the contact into a mailing list I get a circle with a diagonal line across it and nothing happens. I am running Windows 10 and have tried on both my desktop and laptop with no success - am I missing something?
