I have had TBird for over 20 years and it has been mostly trouble free. My T/B supports five email accounts with the same ISP (Bigpond.com). They are all configured for POP operation and have the same server settings. Since Wednesday, one of the email accounts will not send, but returns this error.

Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent using Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.telstra.com for an unknown reason. Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again.

The smtp settings are the same as the other four working accounts. I can even use one of the other smtp account setting and I still get the same message. I have tried the alternative smtp ports (465 instead of 587) but it doesn't help.

I have many emails in this account and I would not like to lose them. So if there is a way that I can save all of the account folders off line , delete the account and then set it up again it might help. Any suggestions welcome !

I am using Thunderbird as my email account. When I try to download emails the "Add Security Exception window pops up This window has the correct Certificate and if I click "Get Certificate" and then "Confirm Security Exceptions" nothing happens. If I restart the computer I still don't get access to my incoming mail. Thunderbird has worked fine for years without a problem. I have also downloaded the "Upgrade " but still no result. Also reported the problem to my internet provider but they were unable tyo help and advised me to contact Mozilla. I only have a basic knowledge of computers so grateful for any help.

If I compose a message, click "Send" then decide I don't want to send the message and click "Cancel" at the password prompt; the message is sent anyway. This began happening about 6 weeks ago, I have tried everything I can think of; I can't think of anything I changed that would cause the problem. I've searched Thunderbird support and found nothing on the issue.

It is an issue because if someone else also uses your computer, they could send "Draft" messages without a password simply by clicking "Cancel" when prompted for a password. Generally nobody else uses my computer so that's not a problem for me; but on occasion I don't notice which account I'm in and will compose a message from one of my secondary accounts. In the past when this happened; there was no problem because I could hit cancel at the password prompt and the message would not send; but if I do that now, the message will send even though I canceled.

I understand that there are few Thunderbird developers, and I appreciate what you do.

My suggestion is to add a handler for the Windows system wakeup from sleep message that would read messages (refresh inbox) when waking from sleep.

This would ensure that messages are read when waking up from sleep. Currently, it is necessary to click Get Messages as a manual separate step after waking a computer from sleep.

I would do it myself if I knew how to build Thunderbird and how to search and edit its source code, but unfortunately I do not have knowledge of these matters myself, nor the time to learn them.

Please.

Before anyone mistakes this problem as a "default FROM" issue, it's not. Please read

I have contacts with multiple eMail addresses. No matter how I order those addresses in the contact's Addressbook record, when I create an outgoing eMail and start to type in an address for any of those contacts, once I enter enough letters to have TBird narrow the display down to that one contact, the eMail addresses are presented to me in alphabetical order even if I have manually ordered those eMail addresses in that contact's record non-alphabetically. Even if I "star" the first address (to make it the primary), the eMail choices in the outgoing eMail are always displayed alphabetically.

As an example:

John Smith's contact record shows three eMail addresses: ccc@gmail.com bbb@yahoo.com aaa@mac.com

When I create an outgoing eMail to John Smith (let's say he's the only "john") and either type "john" or "ccc", the suggested eMail addresses always appear as: aaa@mac.com bbb@yahoo.com ccc@gmail.com ...with the first address highlighted even if John's primary address is "ccc@gmail.com".

Suggestions welcomed. Thanks.

This morning I had 5 new email messages in my inbox but when I clicked to open them all I got was a blank page. How do I access these messages? I shut the computer off and came back and signed it at 10:00 and there were 2 new messages from store ads and I could open both of them and see the message. I tried the first ones again and still a blank page. What do I do a couple of them are very important. Linda

I need to know if Thunderbird is an actual email service or does it access email that I already have? I guess the easy way to understand the ? is, do you get an email address that ends in thunderbird.com (or.org)? Also, does thunderbird give or sell email addresses to advertisers?

I am trying to use Thunderbird with Windows 10, and AOL and Gmail. I made it work with AOL by discovering the largely undocumented need to get a one-time gobbledegook password for AOL by using AOL Webmail. And even then hunderbird fails to remember the password and continually asks for it (even with remember password checked) And I have utterly failed to get Thunderbird to work with GMail - even though I have set my Google Account to permit less secure Apps. It just repeatedly asks for my GMail password.

Purchased a new Macbook Pro/2021/M1 and am having some challenges re: Thunderbird:

- Dock icon is not reflecting when new messages arrive. When one goes to System Preferences/Notifications, neither Thunderbird nor Firefox are shown - hence, no option to adjust settings!

- Open tabs/emails are not retained when restarting Thunderbird. This was a problem in earlier TB iterations, but has been stable for some time.

Thoughts/suggestions?

Hi,

I am receiving messages through POP3 service into local mailbox. I activated the junk filtering and it is automatically moving such messages to junk folder. Everthing is working fine, but, I still have to receive these junk messages from other email clients. Is it possible to auto-delete junk messages from the server side inbox, only after automatically moving them to local junk folder?

Thanks a lot. Cem

I recently had an issue with Thunderbird using my existing NFS home directory Thunderbird profile when I upgraded from Centos 6 to Centos 7. I could no longer read encrypted email or properly send encrypted email via my PKI CAC card - S/MIME. Somehow the the S/MIME digital signature was altered or missing. I trouble shot this thoroughly with mutiple profiles by removing my .thunderbird as well as disabling SELINUX. Nothing helped. All the encryption looked the same from other working Linux systems. AES 128 , and SHA256 for Digital signature.

The solution was that my new Centos 7 was STIG and had FIPS enabled:

  1. cat /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled

1

Editing my grub config and remaking , I disabled FIPS.

  1. cat /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled

0

FIPS no longer interfered with my Thunderbird Cryptography and allowed me to read encrypted email and send encrypted email again.

Please feel free to test this out and let the community know. (Not sure who to notify, but working through this on my other Mozilla account made some Mozilla admin disable that account.. email was.. nrl.navy.mil (no worries). I am glad this is solved.
