I have my main Local folders set to bring mail from my provider via Pop 3. I have the default inbox and a couple of dozen folders. Most mail should remain in the inbox but lots of it sorts by filters into the other folder.

The other day I started noticing that new mail was showing up in a folder named Medical. Normally only mail from my doctors or drugstores should go there.

Then today I noticed that the Medical had over 7,000 emails. In order to sort things out I renamed the folder to "+inbox" and then searched for the medical emails and moved them to a new Medical folder.

The next thing I noticed was that all new mail was going to +inbox and my default inbox was empty. When I move mail to the default inbox and run filters on it, it moves them back to +inbox.

How can I fix this?

The toolbar's "Email a link to this page" button no longer works as before. It now asks me to set up a Newsgroup account. Is there a way to get it back to simply displaying a Thunderbird "Write" page with the link as the body, as it always has?

I have checked with my email account provider, everything there is ok and my account settings are correct. Also, I can access my emails via the web account, and see that I have messages there but Tbird just shows that it is checking for messages, then doesn't retrieve them, and there is no error message. I ruled out my antivirus as the problem by uninstalling it and still no luck so the problem seems to be with Tbird. Help.

I am looking for the easiest (not necessarily the fastest) way to export 8,000 old emails from Netscape Mail 7.2 to Thunderbird.

I want to export this mail from Netscape on an old PC to a new PC. The new PC already has Thunderbird but I am worried that a backup and restore process on netscape may overwrite the 12,000 (different) emails on this new machine with old email from the old machine.

I just don't understand the process to create new profiles etc and not sure whether Thunderbiord could cope with the combined 20,000 new and old email on the one version of Thunderbird.

Just a list of .emls (stored externally from Thunderbird) would be fantastic so I can use Notepad to read. But when you select more than one email in Netscape the 'Save As' option is not available !

thanks in anticipation.

Hi: For the past 1 week I'm trying to DOWNGRADE my Thunderbird Ver 78 to previous Ver 68, and have reviewed probably most of ALL the 'hundreds' articles involving this issue but it CLEARLY LOOKS that a large amount of users, including myself, have founded this process extremely confusing: I was able to download & install my previous 68-version of Thunderbird BUT I'm missing all bookmarks + messages + and General 68-Ver Settings (!), and I still do NOT entirely understand & know how to properly/correctly restore my original Thunderbird Ver 68 settings ...

The ENORMOUS ABUNDANCE of articles are greatly written BUT unfortunately very confusing for users who are NOT as 'deeply-knowledgeable' with Thunderbird as the experienced MOZILLA-experts so - could anyone from the great MOZILLA-experts put together and send us the 'step-by-step' instructions ONLY specifically related to 'Recover user data missing after Thunderbird update'. I strongly suggest NOT to just sending several links because this approach is not an effective HELP, and it mostly just results in further confusion of users. In advance - many thanks to ALL for your understanding and for helping us to make the great Thunderbird even better ...! Tony H.

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.

I am trying to migrate from Thunderbird under Windows 7 to Thunderbird on Mac OS (High Sierra). Need to move profile info to the new machine

Not sure if this is the correct place to post my question, given the separation of Thunderbird from Mozilla. If this is not the right place, I'd appreciate a link to the correct one.

I'm new to Mac OS, have been a long time Windows-7 user, and long ago was a UNIX user at my then employer. But it's past time to say goodby to Redmond.

I want to transfer my Firefox Thunderbird email history as well as my address book etc. from the Windows 7 installation of Firefox Thunderbird, (which says it's "68.8.0 (32-bit)", it was updated today, May 10) over to the new (to me) MacBook-Pro Firefox Thunderbird (version latest as of May 9, so far haven't figured out how to cause the Mac Thunderbird to show it's version info)

While the instructions for copying the profile info on the Windows machine and transferring to another Windows machine are clear, and the instructions for copying an existing Mac profile and transferring to a new Mac are clear, I am unable to find any information on how to move the Windows files to the Mac installation.

I tried copying everything in the Windows "Thunderbird" directory to a flash drive, then tried replacing the Thunderbird files on the Mac with the copied files but that didn't work.

What is the procedure I should be following? For the moment I'll be keeping the Win-7 machine "alive" but would really like to abandon it soon.

Thanks for any suggestions.

(edited the question to change Firefox to Thunderbird - c)

Thunderbird just plain stopped working. All it does is spin the l ittle circle around and around. I use gmail as my email server and everything was working fine last night. Now nothing. Can't even send a "Test" message to myself. I am still getting my email to my cell phone, but not to my laptop. Is there a way to fix this on your end?
