Yesterday my computer was hacked. When I got that all fixed the one thing that came back on line in a mess was my Thunderbird E-mail. I have my columns pretty much back in order but have lost my MESSAGE preview pane, which I want on the side, not below.

list of subjects Date Time Tag Sender Message Preview Pane


The only information I can find is on FOLDER PREVIEW PANES(!).

Please help me get my message previews pane back up. I've been told how to turn off message pane. I'm going crazy here with all this useless information!

I have a Dell Laptop and am running Windows 7 and use Firefox for my browser.

Thank you, Lorraine Calvert

hi, I would like to change the order of my accounts in the left pane. They show in the order I have added them, last one added appears at the bottom. But the last added is the main one for me, so that is cumbersome.

I tried to use Windows easy transfer to move my data between two computers (both running Windows 7), using a Transcend external hard disk. Now it seems to have disappeared from the Transcend during the process, and the Thunderbird on the old computer won't work any more (the message is that the program is running but not responding).

Is there any way of retrieving my old address book, at least??

For the past week I cannot send email. I receive email fine but when I try to send I get this message: An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.1 Authentication Required. Please verify that your email address is correct in your Mail preferences and try again."

I do not know where Mail Preferences is--I have looked for it. Please help or I will need to get another email platform since being able to send is as important as receiving.

Thank you.

Hi,

Simple question. How do I add an address book? I have several address books listed and want to add one but when I right click the closest I could come to is adding a mailing list...unless this is the same thing.

I have Thunderbird version 17.0.8 which I have repeatedly tried to update. I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium. I've also tried installing the Lightning calendar, which apparently worked but it won't allow any data entry. In other words, it's apparently there but it looks like a ghost. The update screen for Thunderbird tells me I'm at the update centre but the activity indicator just keeps going round and round ad infinitum. The posted solutions don't appear to address my Windows version, although I confess to being no expert. So the ultimate question is: should I be able to update Thunderbird 17.0.8 and should I be able to use Lightning with it? Many thanks.

I understand about offline mode but is there a way to have Thunderbird visually let you know you are in offline mode without waiting until you try sending an e-mail or other task that requires it to tell you it is (and has been) in offline mode for awhile?

Thunderbird has stopped fetching new messages, giving this message.

The current operation on 'Inbox' did not succeed. The mail server for account ... responded Invalid UID fetch attribute XSENDER

I'm running release 52.2.1 on Windows 7.

Only the most recent messages give this error. Previously fetched messages display properly.

There has been no change to the account settings. Whatever happened seems to have happened at between 9 PM yesterday and 4 AM today. Subsequent messages are listed, but don't open, giving this message.

All my email disappeared from my Yahoo email inbox. So I created a Thunderbird email account which automatically mirrors my Yahoo email. I thought this would be a backup, in case all my yahoo email disappears again. But I am no so sure this is really a backup since the emails on Thunderbird might also disappear someday (for reasons which are entirely beyond me).

So in view of the foregoing, I wanted to store all my emails to my hard drive as a backup, without having to cut and paste the content of each message. Is there any way of doing that for emails on Thunderbird (or Yahoomail)?

I don't think the Archive feature is satisfactory since that just stores mail on another Thunderbird or Yahoo server, and again, that could be lost, and there will be no way to retrieve it.

Thanks!
