I have Thunderbird installed on 2 different machines. Keeping the messages in sync is no problem as they both use IMAP. However I would also like to keep the contacts in the address books in sync too.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

I have been using Thunderbird for several years but in the last 2 days I am not able to access my messages. When I check webmail they are in the inbox. When I check with Outlook they are brought into the Outlook inbox as they should be.

I am using the same configurations I have always used, I checked, and Thunderbird says it is connected to the server but it does nothing until the connection times out.

One other thing. This very important because these accounts are for a small municipality and we are not able to get any mail.

Thanks in advance for any help, Clyde

I once migrated my frofile folder to another location but that should not have mattered. I am in urgent need of the old emails I can no longer read.

Can any one help?

Since upgrading to 78.3.1 my Thunderbird can send but will not download or copy sent emails to the sent folder.

Could it be some security setting I am not aware of?

The only error message I get is "Your message was sent but a copy was not placed in your sent folder (Sent) due to network or file access errors."

I am on a Debian Buster system

"Automatically mark messages as read" has suddenly stopped working after the update to TB 68.11.0 (64-bit). When i start TB in safe mode, it works fine. In normal mode, even if i manually disable all addons and restart, it just does not work anymore.

When i click on a bold message, it stays bold. I have to click on the green dot in the "read" column for it to be marked as "read".

I tried disabling and re-enabling all relevant settings in the "Options\Display" panel, without any luck.

I have around 6000 messages in the Sent Folder. Suddenly only the latest 10-15 messages are visible. For the rest, when I click on a specific Sent message say of 2 months ago, only the last visible Sent message (ie within the last 10-15 days) is showing.

The subject content of past Sent messages is not showing. I made a subfolder "Sent Old" and copied all my Sent messages to here. I then tried to repair the Sent Folder. Now the Sent Folder is showing only the last 10-15 messages, which are visible, but nothing of the last 6000 messages.

What do I do to retrieve all my Sent messages?

QUESTION:

hello! can I ask little help? from finland and mailbox by Elisa, pop3, mail-client thunderbird the newest version. the problem is that in my inbox-folder the subjects of the mails are present but the contents of the mails more than 5 days old are gone!!! i dont understand. mails on trashcan are ok, as well as in sent - folder. can u imagine what can be wrong here? thanks for you answer in advance.

-ocuva-

ps. i dont know how this service works? i joined with ocuva@hotmail.com to this support site.

there is a few years when I asked help here, though it went very well.

ANSWER: I can't say why contents older than 5 days are gone. Does your mail provider delete old messages if the mailbox approaches its storage limit? Do you have any rules in TB for Retention Policy (right-click the Inbox, Properties)? Are the messages still on the mail server when you open the account in webmail?

- leave messages in server lika IMAP... no ... mail will be deleted after download to the mailclient, so via webmail there is nothing.

- i dont think there suddenly is somekind of storage limit.

- i have denied to delete any messages

in inbox properties I tried to correct the inbox-folder AND NOW ARE THE SUBJECTS OVER 5 DAYS OLD GONE, TOO!

Just updated to 78.3.3 and now when I Reply to an email it has "To:" and "Newsgroup" and the cursor defaults to being in the "Newsgroup" field instead of in the body of the email response. How do I change this so it has "Cc:" instead of "Newsgroup" as the default addressing and how do I make the cursor start out in the body of the email response? I never want to reply to a "Newsgroup", but frequently want to add a "Cc:" I want the interface to go back to the way it was before, so it is usable with a lot fewer mouse motions and clicks.

My Mozilla Thunderbird Email will not open and keeps asking for my password then ignoring it. A message then comes up saying, "Server mail.btinternet.com has disconnected. The server may have goner down or there may be a network problem. I saw a mention system had been compromised." There is no point in asking, "Email me when someone answers the thread" because nothing is coming through. Maybe it would come though to Gmail.

"Maximized Thunderbird window prevents the automatically hiding Windows taskbar from emerging when the cursor is moved down on to it. Thunderbird is the only program that does that. Is it a bug or can I adjust some settings which control that?" This question was asked and answered/solved a year or so ago but I am seeing this behaviour now (Oct 2020). I usually have my taskbar at the top of the screen but the position makes no difference. I am using Thunderbird 78.3.3 (32-bit) on a Windows 10 Lenovo laptop which is updated by my employer immediately updates become available. Suggestions?

Mailing list entries were deleted. here's what I did...

  1. o # File > new > address book > address book 2
  2. o Select address book 1 > edit > select all
  3. o Drag contacts from address book 1 to address book 2
  4.  This moved the contacts
  5.  “And it moved” the mailing list that was in address book 1
  6.  “And it deleted” the entries in the mailing list

I’m running v. 78.3.3 (32-bit) with Windows 7. additional note: the drag and drop feature to populate a new mailing list does not work--not even by holding down the ctrl key as was suggested in another thread. So the only way I know to re-populate my mailing list is to retype it.

I am using Thunderbird with Office 365 to make use of the message filters capability in Thunderbird (It works better than Outlook). However, when I close Thunderbird and re-open it, my inbox is missing and it only shows the "local folders". I do notice however, that a 2nd tab in Thunderbird briefly opens and then closes quickly. I recorded the screen and was able to pause the video to see that the brief window opening is actually the Microsoft login screen for OWA. The only way I've been able to fix it is to recreate the profile in Thunderbird and copy over all my message filters by moving the dat file and replacing the default. I've done this about eight times now and am getting frustrated. Is there a fix so that Thunderbird retains my 365 mailbox?
