I am trying to convert 100% to Firefox and Thunderbird and would LOVE to make a donation once this is completed. HOWEVER, I'm having extreme difficulty importing my address book from Gmail. I'm semi capable but clearly not able to complete this step.

In the last two days all of my messages have been immediately marked as read (i.e., unread messages do not show up in bold). In options I have chosen 'Automatically mark messages as read after displaying for 10 seconds', and in the past this has meant the incoming message showed as bold until I opened and read it, and that the main display indicated how many unread messages I had. I am using Firefox 78.13.0 in Windows 10, but this did not happen after an update: it simply happened overnight. Just now I sent a message from my Gmail account to my Firefox address and have not opened it in Firefox: on my iPad it shows as unread, but on my PC it shows as read, even though I haven't touched it. This problem applies to all three mailboxes in the Firefox account: when I look at the main Firefox display, there is no bold to indicate that any of the mailboxes have new messages.

 This is very annoying in terms of business--I can't immediately see whose messages I have not yet read, and whether any new messages have arrived in a particular mailbox since I last opened Firefox (it is too distracting to keep it open all the time).  Many thanks for any help.

Good morning,

I am using Thunderbird with Exquilla for my Microsoft Exchange account.

Since the latest update (few days ago) to release 91.2.0 (32-bit), the message filters are not automatically working anymore. They work manually. I deleted and created them again, with the same result.

Can you please assist with this?

Best regards,

GOOD THING I MADE A COPY OF THIS MESSAGE. IT TIMED OUT BEING SENT.

I have two gmail accounts, one yahoo, and one hotmail on my HP laptop, running Windows 10.

I've been having server authentication problems with Thunderbird on all of them ('except 'hotmail) since 9/22/21 for incoming mail and 9/17/21 or 9/20/21 for outgoing mail. Each account gives me the "failure while connecting" message. Screen shots attached.

Hotmail often gives me "your email was not sent; try again later" message. BUT it has sent the message and it has been received! Sorry, no screen shot of that error message.

I don't remember the terminology, but I have "listed" Thunderbird as safe/allowed to log in on my behalf with each of my accounts.

From the PC, I am able to log in to all of these email accounts directly with the same user/passwords entered in Thunderbird. My Galaxy S7 Smartphone successfully sends & receives from each of these accounts using a different mail client.

Please let me know if you need information on the server set ups. Until today, I did not realize the extent of this issue. I really need help! Thanks.

Bonjour, Les messages indésirables ne s'affichent pas dans la boite mail indésirables d'une de mes adresses mails que j'utilise sur thunderbird. Le dossier des indésirables et vide pour cette adresse mail (pas pour les autres) et pourtant je peux y accéder si je vais sur mon portable, via une autre application de gestion de boite mail. Je précise que j'ai réinitialisé les données d'apprentissage et décoché tout ce que je pouvais pour avoir accès à ces mails spams. C'est très embêtant dans le sens où tous les mails de mes collègues arrivent dans les spams. Pourriez-vous m'aider ? D'avance merci

Hello, I receive two messages repeatedly, on my Orange address. This is not the case if I use Orange mail, only with thunderbird. For the first, I put a filter that removes it, but it doesn't work with the second. This repetition saturates my messaging and prevents me from receiving other messages.

Bonjour, Je reçois deux messages de façon répétitive, sur mon adresse Orange. Ce n'est pas le cas si j'utilise Orange mail, seulement avec thunderbird. Pour le premier, j'ai mis un filtre qui le supprime, mais ça ne marche pas avec le second. Cette répétition sature ma messagerie et m'empêche de recevoir les autres messages.

I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird as my mailprogram. Since a few days are the incoming mail directly automaticly marked as 'read' I tried to chance it as written in the helpdesk. Whatever I try, it doesn't work.

Has there been a change in the program, a bug perhaps.

Looking forward to your reply, Aad Smeltink

August 4 my verizon.net email on thunderbird stopped receiving new mail. I keep getting server rejected login information. I resubmitted my password and still got same message. I manually reconfigured pop3 and even manually configured imap but both failed. I then deleted the account and same error when I tried to reinstall it. I then used Firefox to log into aol.com and used by verizon id and password to access it that way and it worked and my mail since august 4 has been retrieved.

 What has changed that I can't access my verizon mail via thunderbird?  Since I can't contact AOL, I wonder if anyone else might have an anwser?
Thanks for any help you might give

Hello. I have recently been experiencing lots of problems with Thunderbird E-mails. Often I am unable to send any mails at all. Although the in-box seems to work OK. Checked with my ISP yesterday ( Talk Talk ) and was advised they no longer support Tiscali E-mails ! However, that later turned out to be incorrect. Apparently they still support Tiscali - but only for existing telephone and broadband customers like me. However, I am advised to change my account settings from POP 3 to IMAP. ( not quite sure why ! )

If I am to change the settings to IMAP could someone please let me have some simpole and easy-to-follow steps for an " oldie " like me so I don't make any mistakes. Also, please could you confirm that if I make the switch I will still be able to keep my existing tiscali.co.uk E-mail domain name ? I want to retain that E-mail address in any event. Is that possible ?

Finally, I would want to copy a couple of hundred incoming and out-going E-mails to the IMAP account, or, if not possible, then I would need to make a back-up copy of two or three hundred incoming and out-going E-mails which are already on Thunderbird but I don't know how to go about this. Could someone please send me some easy-to-follow instructions,

I have to say that all of this seems very complicated just to change from POP 3 to IMAP in order to keep Talk Talk happy ! I don't use multiple accounts and would prefer to stick with POP 3. Help and advice please on what to do.

Many thanks. SG.

Sorry! 0 results found for ‘

during last 12 months have had several crasheson thunderbird which I use now about 10 years. all profiles both for thunderbird and firefox seemed to have been re-new-installed. I am a serious user but not technical and know little about profiles and restoring them. I am stubling by with a uptodate w10-64b with hardly historical profiles but all on the same disk and some older bku's. Looks like I need a lot help tobegin, language english and very in depth knowledge of Mozilla is required I think with all those renewed version the last years. Hope to hear. Thanks Willem

I can't find a way to ask the Thunderbird community a question. This is my question.

I am running tbird 78.5.1 on my PC. There is an option to move mail. One of the options under that is to look at favorites. I want to learn how to put folders into that favorites list.

I know there is also an option for recent folders. That one autoconfigures and I know how to use it.

But I would like to designate favorites as well. Can someone please tell me how to do that?
