I can't login on one email address to my gmail via thunderbird because the key seems to be unrecognized whereas when I log in to the same account using web browser it works effortlessly. Moreover installing a new instance of thunderbird or disabling Kaspersky Internet Security doesn't work either.

I can still login to the previously made google accounts via thunderbird on fresh install though I cannot do the same for the email in question.

Any hints?

The image I shared shows that the key is unrecognized by the website although it is. It displays for each of 3 keys added to this account. On website all of them works as well for other email accounts on gmail via thunderbird.

iCloud Custom Domain Setup

I'm trying to setup IMAP settings for an iCloud account using a custom domain. I'm running into a authentication problem. I don't get a lot of feedback from the error: Login to account "sss@yyy.com" failed Login to server imap.mail.me.com with username sss@yyy.com failed

I'm using an app specific password [0] and my iCloud account as the username which is also based on my custom specific domain yyy.com. I've also tried my iCloud alias which maps to aliasname@icloud.com as the username as well as "aliasname" without the @icloud.com. No luck with any of the permutations.

Any hints on troubleshooting this? Any issues people are seeing with iCloud IMAP and/or using custom domains with it that might help me with this?

Yes, I have checked "show only display name for people in my address book" -- and all these people are in my address book. Note that when I open the address book the first column is labeled Name, not Display Name.

I'm using 91.9.0 on Win 10 Pro. Thanks.

It appears Thunderbird was updated on May11, 2022 per 8216C80C92C4E828.log file. When I open TB, I'm prompted to enter passwords for each email account. When I open Saved Passwords under Preferences\Privacy-Security, there are no entries. If I provide the PW at the prompt, the entry does not get saved; the login fails. I no longer get prompted enter my Primary PW - unless I start Troubleshooting Mode. In Troubleshooting Mode, everything works correctly; I can see all the saved PW's. How do I save the Troubleshooting Mode profile as my operating profile?

MacOS Monterey - TBird 91.9.0 - OpenSC/CAC card, TBird will not accept visible cert as S/MIME

Greetings all...

I have a combination of MacOS Monterey, OpenSC 0.22.0 and a Cert Card/reader. I have the CA root imported and trusted for the cert card and the config works perfectly in Firefox v100 (sees my certs on the card, prompts for card login at startup of Firefox, etc)

In Thunderbird it doesn't work...in that Firefox will not accept the card based certs for S/MIME.

In Thunderbird I can see the card and reader under S/MIME Devices and I can login successfully to the card. In Manage S/MIME Certificates I can see my two card based certificates under "Your Certificates".

If I hit "Select" on either "Personal Certificate for digital signing" or "Personal certificate for encryption" Thunderbird tells me "Certificate Manager can't locate a valid certificate that can be used to digitally sign your messages with an address of <me@myemailaddress.tld>"

that's not my real email ;)

If I view the certificates my proper email address is listed and the card based certificates are shown with Key Usages of "Digital-Signature, Non-Repudiation" and Extended Key Usages of "Client Authentication, E-mail Protection, Smartcard Login"

This key card and driver (OpenSC) works perfectly on Firefox on this machine. Thunderbird doesn't like it. The Tools/Developer/Error Console shows no related errors.

What am I missing? Can anyone suggest what Thunderbird isn't liking here?

Many thanks!
