I receive lots of junk or scam emails. I don't open them in order to make sure nothing negative happens. I'm constantly close to running out of storage space due to all these daily emails. My question is: is there a way to safely block or unsubscribe from these emails without clicking on them (opening them)? I right click on them in Thunderbird but don't see a suitable option. Also, I haven't ever deleted my junk folder, and I know there are emails in there that I need, so I can't periodically delete the junk folder (at least not for foreseeable future). I'd be very appreciative of any help! Thanks in advance.

My troubles began after receiving this email from Microsoft: “Update your sign-in technology before September 16th, 2024 to maintain email access.” MS insisted on a new password authentication – Oauth2. I checked my settings on my Thunderbird accounts and the drop-down lists didn’t show OAuth2 as an option. Then when I tried to send or receive emails I got messages saying that the authentication I used was not supported. I tried every option available in the lists and got the same rejection. (NOT OAuth2) After enabling multi-factor authentication I got these messages from MS: permissions: “Thunderbird will be able to read, update, create, and delete email in your mailbox. Does not include permission to send mail.” “Thunderbird will be able to send email on your behalf from your mailbox.” Thunderbird will be able to read, update, create, and delete email in your mailbox. Does not include permission to send mail. (???)

Then I somehow I let my guard down and ended up accepting a “Primary Password” for Thunderbird (which I didn’t save) and I’ve read multiple websites with ways to reset my PP but in order to reset the password that I don’t have, I am required to enter it anyway. (??) I tried using a command prompt according to a Mozilla help site but that didn’t work either.

The message from MS that TB would be able to function might be so if I could only log into TB, but I don’t have a PP. I can get to my emails online from the MSN and Earthlink servers but not via TB.

This has been going on for the better part of a week. I have been unable to send or receive emails on my MSN account or my EarthLink account. Yes, I seem to have dug a hole for myself. Can someone please pull me out? Maybe I’ll just buy some stamps and an abacus.

Thanks for whatever help is out there,

I’m running Win 10 and Thunderbird: 115.12.2 (64-bit)

Kia Ora Koutou from Aotearoa New Zealand.

After several hours of sheer frustration, including reading a significant number of posts I am still without result.

Thunderbird keeps asking for my my password for both my SMTP and IMAP settings despite all of these being correct.

I have checked with my domain and email provider (mail.1stdomains.co.nz) and they inform me that it appears to be a thunderbird settings.

Checking the thunderbird settings they are correct including passwords, however, the mail client just refuses to download the mail providing a dialogue box with "login to account "<PRIVACY>" failed. Enter new password, Cancel, Retry.

Is there some way to fix this error?

I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

Thus please dispense with any solutions for this and just inform how I can install v91.1.2 using apt-get

I see you list the versions but I see no where on how to specify which version to install.

Hi,

When trying to implement the OAuth for a live.com account the Thunderbird system seemed to lose everything. There was no sign of any emails the view was as the image. The help page we used

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/microsoft-oauth-authentication-and-thunderbird-202

There were no errors or information.

On going back to the conventional settings of using a password we got information that emails were arriving via app poppups etc but still the view we get is the same as in the picture. Nothing at all in the view.

We have uninstalled and reinstalled Thunderbird and are now on v 128

Cox just transferred all customers' email systems to Yahoo. After my e-mails were transferred to Yahoo, Yahoo tried to help me when I was getting error messages saying that log in to server smtp.mail.yahoo.com with my user name (my e-mail address) failed. The Yahoo rep told me that my problem is that "Whenever the generated app password from Yahoo is entered, sending emails works, but it only stays like that until the computer gets restarted. The app password is not saved." The rep told me that many Thunderbird users who had their email systems transferred to Yahoo are having the same problem. Has anyone had this problem and been able to resolve this problem? Thank you! Cyd
