I have Thunderbird installed and am on version 78. If I'm on a website and it says something like "click here to send email" or some other email link and I click on it I get a screen asking if I want to install Thunderbird. I already have installed I just need it to open the new message box. There's some communication missing somewhere.

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.

"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?

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.

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!

I use dual-24” monitors with the left display “1” being landscape and the right display “2” being portrait. I run Thunderbird full-screen on display “2” – portrait.

When composing an email the Write window opens over top of the Thunderbird window on display “2” - where it should be.

Once the email is composed and I click on “Send” Thunderbird always brings up the “Check Spelling” window in far upper left corner of the “1” landscape display This is far from the Write message composition window.

I can find no way to tell Thunderbird that I want to permanently reposition the “Check Spelling” window to a better location near or on the “2” portrait display. How can I permanently reposition a “Check Spelling” window? Thanks.

I have several email accounts based on projects and areas of interest: Genealogy, etc.

I would like to set up a filter to apply globally to every account. For example, Subject is Civil War, or message contains Civil War.

But, I have some emails in a genealogy account and others in a generic household account that pertain to questions from various authors.

How can I create one filter to encompass all of my accounts?

Thank you,

I have a new Mac Mini (to replace my ten year old one) and it is running OS Catalina which quite a jump from my old Mini. I have updated to the latest Thunderbird v78.4, and at the top of the screen are the various menus as usual, starting with Thunderbird on left, then File, Edit, View, etc. When you click on Thunderbird you get a drop down menu, with About, Preferences, Service, Hide Thunderbird, Hide Others, Show all, and Quit Thunderbird. *None* of these menu items work! Why? I only know the version number as I saw it when it was downloading the application. I can Quit by typing 'Command Q' but I can't get Preferences by typing 'Command ,' so what is happening here? All the other drop down menus (File, Edit, View, etc.) and selections seem to work. Anyone else have this problem? Or know about this fault? Thanks.

The account in question uses ExQuilla to connect with work Exchange server. A couple of days ago I lost connectivity (got no new messages) so I delete and remade the account using the same name. I did not notice until today that the account was now duplicated ONLY in the left panel of the Account Settings dialog. They are not separate accounts with the same name: editing the name of one renames the other identically. Every action I've tried in the left panel (accounts listing) begets "An account with this name already exists. Please enter a different account name." (t\The pop-up typically appears twice.)

I'm getting new mail, but I cannot assign a smtp server to the (semi-)new account due to the above. I can re-assign the smtp server per email but not set it permanently and frequently forget and this is causing confusion.

Is there any remedy for this?

Greetings! Now that Apple has upgraded the iPad iOS to be able to use a mouse and keyboard, many folks are making their iPad Pro their main computer. I've been using Thunderbird as my main email client for many years and would love to see you folks develop a version for iOS, as I honestly am having a tough time finding another email client that I like as well as Thunderbird. Any chance you are working on an iOS Version for all us die hard TB users?

Thanks a bunch, Connie

Images don't show up with the captions in the body of the email. I get an empty box where the image should be. The images show as attachments (which can be opened) and are also visible at the bottom of message but not with the captions. If I open the message In Gmail the images show in the body of the message.

Hello,

I am having trouble sending emails from Thunderbird after changing my mail server's hosting provider and reconfiguring the existing email accounts.

POP3 works fine, but SMTP does not. I keep getting the following error:

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: "The use of IP (xx.xx.xx.xx) in HELO is forbidden!". Please check the message recipient "yyy@gmail.com" and try again.

Same message appears if I try to send to other email addresses, not just Gmail.

The IP address here is the actual IP address of my mail server.

In my SMTP settings, I use the most basic settings: port 25, mail.domain.tld, No authentication + Password transmitted insecurely. I also tried various other options, including port 465, SSL/TLS, Normal password / Encrypted password. I am using the settings as suggested by the hosting provider.

The mail server has DMARC and DKIM activated.

My hosting provider's support says that the issue is with Thunderbird configured incorrectly using the IP address instead of mail server name, but I never entered the IP address anywhere. I believe Thunderbird resolves the mail server name to the said IP address and sends that in the HELO.

Can you advise where this message comes from (my mail server or the mail server of the recipient) and what I can do to fix this?

Thank you!

Best regards, Stanislav

Yesterday (10/22/2020) I received an update from Thunderbird. Once it installed, I was suddenly no longer able to receive email. I kept getting "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.server". I didn't change any settings after the update. I wish I could go back to the previous version.

I know I can access my emails through mail.google.com, but of course, Thunderbird is more efficient to use.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I use the RSS feeds a lot, I would like to set a message filter where Thunderbird automatically saves all attachments of a specific rss feed to a selected file folder.

I installed the FiltaQuila extension where I can set to save all attachments to a selected file folder. Now the problem is that all these saved attachments are empty [0kB]

The extension was only tested on MailFolders not on RSS-feeds, can that be the problem? Can Mozilla feature this function in the future?
