Dear all,

Microsoft banned all basic authentication method from Office365 because these method does not support multi factor authentication.

After that, I reconfigured the the configuration by used OAuth2 method on latest version of Thunderbird (78.5.1 (32-bit). The result as follows: + Can not receive new email from Offfice365 (Alert: As attached file No. 1)

+ However, I can send the email normally with OAuth2 via SMTP

Please help me fix this problem.

Thank you so much for your support.

Hi,

I use the archiving feature of Thunderbird to move e-mail into yearly archives (Local Folders). I now have yearly archives going back a number of years. I appreciate the fact that they can be indexed by the search feature.

However they do take a fair amount of space on my laptop. I'd like to move some of the older years to a networked disk. I have several different e-mail accounts. My archives look like this:

  - Local Folders 
       - Comcast mail
             - 2011
                - Tree of sub-folders
             - 2012
                - Tree of sub-folders
             - etc.
        - Another mail ID
             - 2011
               - Tree of sub-folders
             - etc.

Can I select individual years within an e-mail identity and have only those on a networked disk? How would I do that?

What happens when I am away from my local network (and the networked disk with some of the Local Folders is not available)? Am I correct that those folders would simply not appear in my Thunderbird navigation pane? Or would it generate an error?

I generally set only the most recent years' archives to "Include messages in this folder in global search results". It's terrific to be able to find things from previous years, but I generally don't need to look back that many years. I also assume there's a performance penalty the larger the number of folders included.

Should I be sure that folders moved to the networked disk are set to NOT be included in the global indexing? Would having that set generate errors or strange behavior when I did a search while away from the networked disk? Or would the results in those folders show up (since they are in the index), but simply not be displayable?

Thanks for any help or guidance anyone can provide!

Apparently the last update lost my contacts. The address books are still there, but there are no contacts in them. They all seem to be empty address books.

Not sure if this part is relevant, but...

While searching the forum for an fix I noticed others had similar problems that were supposedly fixed in update version 78x. I checked my version, it said 68x on the updates page of the options menu. However, when I checked the update history, it said it was version 78x. I unchecked the automatic updates (may have been in safe mode as that was one of recommendations I found) and checked for updates and it said version 68x was available. Thinking this might bring back my contacts since 78x seemed to have borked the address book, I updated it. Didn't help, but now it says it's up to date with version 68x and version 78x doesn't seem to be available. The history shows it updated 68x on Oct 1 after 78x was updated on Sep 15.

I've used Thunderbird for over 10 years and never had a serious problem before. This is very frustrating as I had over 100 contacts, many with a charity that I help.

How can I get my contacts back without re-entering them manually?

Thanks.

Is there an easy way to export a segment of my folders, to another user? We need to provide some emails to support a lawsuit we are fighting, and I would like to keep these emails organized in the folders I've specified. Is there an easy way to export my folder structure, and the emails contained within these folders, to my attorney so that he can replicate them on his computer and view them in the way I have them organized?

For the last several months some of my emails have ended up in the "Junk Mail" folder somehow. Previously all my junk mail went to "Junk" and was flagged with yellow flame and shortly deleted. The email now going to "Junk Mail" includes some from relatives and Medicare. Fortunately none is flagged as junk but of course is a pain to move to the inbox manually. Has there been a redesign of Thunderbird somehow causing email to end up in that directory? Is that something that my ISP Charter/Spectrum might be causing? Thanks, besides the constant "Not Responding" messages I get, this is making me wonder if I need to find another email program.

I have several Thunderbird Address Books, and wish to print some of them out on paper. On the address book screen, the names are listed Last Name first, in alphabetical order. But the Print Preview (and the Print) list them Last Name first (as it should), but alphabetizes the list according to First Name!! Example: Reynolds, Audrey is the first name on the printout, and Abernathy, Zack is the LAST name on the list.

I'm running the very latest version of Thunderbird on a Win7 Ultimate laptop, and am a looong-time user of Thunderbird. I've printed out lots of Address Books, and don't remember this problem in the past.

UPDATE: THE SAME VERSION OF T-BIRD RUNNING ON MY WIFE'S Win7 LAPTOP ALPHABETIZES PRINTOUTS PROPERLY!! As far as I can tell, the Options in her T-Bird are set the same as mine.

Please advise. engrollie

BTW: the Help search engine is tedious and unproductive. It searches for all messages that contain ANY of multiple search words. There should be an option to specify that the results must include only messages that contain ALL of the search words. Thanks
