Can I edit a received email? In some cases after received an email it is useful to add some notes or other comment. I have found there was a plugin for this, but it was not updated. I have tried to export to emb file and add the comment externally from TB but I could not find the way to import again into TB. I used this feature in the past on Outlook, and in my opinion it is a convenience feature. Is there any plan to include it in future TB versions?

WIN7 Starlink Internet Latest version of Thunderbird


Thunderbird stopped being able to send all of a sudden through gmail. I can receive messages fine. I keep getting an error about timing out on SMTP server. All server settings are correct per gmail's outgoing server page. It was working for a few minutes last night after hours of messing around with this issue then stopped again. I've installed another client and it worked for about an hour then stopped being able to send as well.

Things I've done: Delete profile (kept messages) - setup email again Uninstalled and reinstalled TB Completely disabled antivirus Increased time out in TB settings

Settings: smtp.gmail.com port 587 (tried 465 as well) Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication: OAuth2

Driving me nuts because this is for my business and have to send emails through the gmail webpage.

Thanks for any direction!

Dear all, One of my email accounts no longer exists, but I would like to keep the emails that are saved in Thunderbird for future reference. How can I delete the account in Thunderbird, or at least stop Thunderbird from attempting to authenticate and load new emails, while saving old emails? Apologies if this question has already been asked, but I was unable to find any help on the subject.

Thank you!

Hi, really thank you for your great work.

  1. My question

I observe that in other editors like VSCode, Sublime Text

If nothing is selected, and I press Ctrl+C, and Ctrl+X the current line would be copied/cut

meaning while in Thunderbird nothing is copied/cut.

※I write only text mail

  1. My suggestion

Is it possible to implement this feature? Would be very convenient.

I'm using Thunderbird 68.12.1 with Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron laptop computer. I have 6 accounts and I've accidentally messed up the locations of default folders and sub-folders -- it happened when I was not watching the screen and was using the TAB key when I thought I was using the SHIFT key (!!).

The folders Inbox, Sent, Deleted, Junk etc are all at the top level with Account folders as sub-folders instead of the other way round. A snip of the top of my folder structure is attached and I hope that makes sense. I can't move any of the wayward folders back to where they should be. Any help would be much appreciated.

Whenever I first respond to an email in Thunderbird I am unable to review what I responded with inline with the ongoing conversation.

I see the purple arrow indicating that I did respond, but there is nowhere in the Sent Mail tab or opening the original email in a Conversation tab that allows me to read through the entire correspondence with both sides of the conversation in context. When replies do accumulate enough for the drop-down appear, it is only the other person's emails that are displayed.

This is incredibly inconvenient and, were it not for that purple arrow at the very least, unassuring in the cases where I want to double check if my email successfully went through to begin with.

Would love to know if I'm simply missing a setting I can toggle on to view both sides of these email threads in one place!

Thank you

I just added a contact by right clicking on the email address in a message. When I start a new message and start typing the person's name, it comes up. When I go to the address book, a search also turns it up. But going to any address book or to the default "all address books," then scrolling down, doesn't show it. How can that be?

I should say that the interface for the address book or books has changed since I last used it, and it's a bit puzzling too. One can use the scroll bar to move down the lists, but it defaults to a search interface, and simply clicking on a list item and hitting a key no longer takes one to names beginning with that letter. How strange. Pointers?

Thank you,

I have Thunderbird set up with four email accounts. Recently, one of them has started saving Sent emails in the Local Sent folder. (Until I found this I thought that they were not being saved at all). Checking the Account Settings shows that the 'Place a copy in' option is correctly set to save in the Sent folder of that account. (see attachment) Can anyone suggest why this has happened and how I can fix the problem? All the other three accounts save in the correct Sent folder.

Hi...Since this last update, I have lost all my subfolders. I found them, I cannot remember where and tried copying them into different folders and rebooting Thunderbird but they are still missing from the left pane. Adding to my confusion is that now I have both a pop3 account and an IMAP account showing...I am wondering if someone can offer a simple solution to this problem. I have looked on the forums, but some of the solutions confuse me. So the simpler the better, if possible. Thank you so much. T.

The Address Book for the new Thunderbird Linux has become a train-wreck. Numerous things that were easy are now cumbersome. For example, in order to add an existing contact to an existing list in Personal Address Book, I had to create an entirely new list because there is no way to add an existing contact to an already existing list. If there is a way, I sure couldn't find it.
