Now the most recent mails of two years are gone, most recent mail is from 2016. Nevertheless my quota is still 91% full. Did I completely lost these mails, or can I recover them? And how to make sure the newest 2000 mails stay, while anything older gets deleted - and my quota usage comes down.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated

The latest version of Thunderbird mentions that attachments have been improved and you can drag and drop files directly onto the email but that does not work for my installation. I also read that they moved the attachments window area from top right to bottom of email, however mine is still on top right of email and only way to add an attachment is to click "Attach" and using file folder find the file you would like to attach.

I started Thunderbird in diagnose error mode and it found no issues. I also created a new test profile and add one email account but still had the same issue.

Some months ago I changed from the release to the beta channel. At some point during the 91 betas I started getting a message box saying 'There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.' twice every startup. On starting Thunderbird I first get a message box saying that, I click on OK, the box closes, the box opens again with the same message, I click OK again, the box closes again and then the Thunderbird window finally opens. Every startup. Whether I'm starting TB or it is re-starting after an update. In Windows 10 Default Apps settings, Email is set to Thunderbird, .eml, .wdseml, MAILTO and MID are set to Thunderbird. In Thunderbird settings I've set and re-set Thunderbird to be the default for everything but Calendar, also done it again after running TB as an administrator. I've used a reg file I found that's supposed to deal with problems in the Registry that can cause this, and also downloaded and run the current 92 beta installer after finding the problem still there after TB updated to the 92 beta.

Everything appears to work after it starts, but having this error box and having to OK it twice every re-start is getting really annoying.

Any suggestions?

I have a large folder of .vcf files from another email provider. In trying to import them to my new Thunderbird Address Book the "Import" function in "Tools" only allows one file at a time. There certainly must be a way to bring them all in at once?

Google says the following when I authenticate my Thunderbird app (MAC OS) to send and receive (IMAP/SMTP) Gmail messages. Is Google correct or mistaken about Thunderbird not being secure? Thank you

"Less secure app blocked Google blocked the app you were trying to use because it doesn't meet our security standards. Some apps and devices use less secure sign-in technology, which makes your account more vulnerable. You can turn off access for these apps, which we recommend, or turn on access if you want to use them despite the risks. Google will automatically turn this setting OFF if it's not being used."

We have multiple email accounts on an email hosting service. Now using Thunderbird 91.0.3, it doesn't seem to like multiple outgoing servers. TB wants to keep using the previous email name(s) outgoing, i.e. "me@mydomain.com" for the next entry. So even though I add an smtp server "you@mydomain.com" TB will automatically make it "me@mydomain. Then in the recipients email, it will show the correct sender email addy, but under correspondents it has the wrong info.

Hello,

I am facing a weird issue with my Thunderbird installation. When I am moving up and down my mouse on the account pane on the right of Thunderbird, the app gets slow and increases cpu usage to 80%+. I have tried disabling indexing and hardware acceleration but these didn't solve the issue. I also installed 92b1 version but the problem continues. On the 78th version there was no issue like this. Here I have attached a gif to represent the problem.


PS.: If you see a 50%+ on the utilization on the taskbar on the beginning it is because I was running a gif recorder to make the above animation. It usually runs between 20 - 30 % but when I am trying to select an account to thunderbird it jumps to 89%.

Thunderbird won't connect to hotmail account

Here is one solution: In your hotmail/outlook account (web) go to settings (the "wheel" right above), click "options" and under Accounts go to POP and IMAP settings. Under POP select that apps and devices may use POP. After having done this everything should work normally.

However, this solution does not work for me. The microsoft page mentions different imap settings than the default settings from thunderbird...both options under manual settings do not work.

Anything else i can try?
