Hello. I'm curious if Thunderbird supports GReader or Fever API for connecting to external aggregator like FreshRSS or TT-RSS?

Examples of RSS Readers that support this are Newsflash, RSSGuard, so I'm curious if Thunderbird supports being just a rss client for an external rss aggregator?

Reason being - I read RSS on multiple devices, plus I keep my Thunderbird closed most times. I only open it when I want to read email or rss news. So I noticed that it sometimes misses some rss feeds when my laptop is closed (this is normal - more news get published while I'm not parsing them). That's why I have an external aggregator collect it and keep it all for me and I just access it with my other devices.

Can thunderbird do this? Thanks

Hi,

I do like how I can change the toolbar buttons that Thunderbird shows when I open Thunderbird. That is, I other mouse button click on the toolbar and select "Customize." I have a panoply of buttons to choose from, to arrange as I wish on the toolbar.

But, when I am reading an email, the buttons I see on the top left of the email window are: "Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More" (in Settings, I have "'Open messages' set to 'in a new message window'."

I have not been able to find a similar "Customize" ability for the toolbar of the message window.

Is there such an ability?

The reason I ask... I'd like to have similar control over that toolbar to that I have on the other Thunderbird toolbars. But I cannot find the appropriate Customize option.

What am I missing?

thx.

I've recently upgraded Thunderbird to 78.14.0 and Nostalgy to 3.4.2. Nostalgy is an essential add-on for me, but it's not working the same as in earlier versions, and I hope someone can help with these problems. Or should I ask Alain Frisch, the author of the add-on? 1. Using S to move (or C to copy) an email to a selected folder works when the email is closed (but highlighted in the Inbox or wherever) but no longer works when the email is open. Earlier versions worked when the email is open, and it's a huge drawback for me that it doesn't work that way now. Am I missing something? 2. The command G (go to the specified folder) does not appear at all when invoked from within an email. When the email is closed G provides the expected list of folders, but focus does NOT move to the selected folder. Again, am I missing something?

Grateful for any help.

I was able to change the color of the context menu (the menu you get when you either right click or click on a dropdown) and the color of the highlight/selection as shown in the attached screenshot.

The default color looks like it's black, and I'd like to change it to match the rest of my Arc-Dark gtk theme. Does anyone know the name of the CSS tag that controls the context menu border?

Here's what I have so far:

/* Context Menu */ menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,popup > menu, popup > menuitem {background-color: #404552 !important;}

menuitem:hover, .menu-iconic:hover, .menuitem-iconic:hover {

border-radius: 0px !important;
background-color: #5294E2 !important;

}

Windows 11; Thunderbird 115.10.1

I prefer to see only new messages in my Inbox. To that end, I've chosen the icon that says "Show only unread messages;" but it will not stay chosen. Every time I leave TB and come back I have to chose the icon again or see all the messages I've seen and reacted to before.

Is there a way to make the choice to see only unread messages and have it stay in use?

I need the option to convert message date to local time on forwarding, instead of UTC + - from the original header.

This is the expected behavior in every other client I have used.

Even if the original sender is in the same city as me, chances are their originating server could be somewhere else and their originating time preference may not be set correctly. So it's more useful and logical to end user to show that in my local time zone.

Please, at least make it a user preference option.

I am not the only one:

I use Thunderbird as a central repository for 5 different email addresses. Recently 1 of them stopped getting Sent messages that were created on Webmail or my Phone. I used to work fine, now it doesn't. This account is the only one I have that is set to POP3; the others are IMAP.

I'd change the settings to be IMAP but don'e see how to do that. And, I don't want to lose any messages and would like to capture the ones that have not been captured.

Any thoughts?

Hey there Team!

So I flipped my table because of the new Outlook update and I'm beyond frustrated.

Not only it does not show the unread email count but also stopped working for my work email, making me miss a serious meeting!

This is ridiculous!

So now I'm transitioning to Thunderbird however, my Inbox is showing the total amount of emails. This is not what I need. What I need is the unread amount of emails.

On top of this, if I minimize the email, the Inbox amount count merges with the amount count of Sent Items. This is not what I need either... What I need is to solely have the amount of unread emails.

How can I achieve solely unread email count with Thunderbird?

Please keep me posted as I'm losing my last screw over setting up something as basic as this. -Val

Hi

I have used local Thunderbird folders for my Gmail accounts for a long time, and have now started using Protonmail (via Proton Bridge to Thunderbird) as well. Sending and receiving Protonmail via TB works fine.

I want to keep my single local inbox, sent folders etc. I set up a filter on the TB Protonmail account to copy all incoming emails to the local inbox. Works fine. I have also configured TB's Protonmail account to copy any emails created in TB's Protonmail account to the local 'sent' folder. All good.

I now want to get any emails sent via the Protonmail app to be copied to my local 'TB sent' folder - but have failed to get this to work.

If I create a TB filter to run on the Protonmail IMAP 'sent' folder, it CHANGES the separate TB inbox filter from running on the IMAP inbox, to run on the IMAP 'sent' folder!!!

I want to have two separate filters for Protonmail IMAP - one for 'inbox' and one for 'sent' - but they keep resetting so that both run either on the IMAP inbox or 'sent'. I thought filters were separate entities, but clearly not.

Am I missing something, or have I stumbled across a bug?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hello everybody,

I have includes 4 different email adresses in Thunderbird. All of them as IMAP. All the time everthing works fine, but for the last 2 weeks Thinderbird doesnt syncronize correctly.

For example: Thunderbird sees, that there are 8 unread messages in inbox, but at the same time Thunderbird does show me only 5 of them in the inbox. (When I login the the eMail-provider then there are all the 8 messages)

The "repair"-tool did not help so far. Diffrent mail-adresses show similar behavior.

I need a good idea.

Thanks a lot!

I want to delete a mail folder from an IMAP server. When clicking "Delete" in right-click menu, Thunderbird tries to move it to trash. This fails for folders that are shared from another user with error "[CANNOT] Renaming not supported across non-private namespaces". When I switch the "When I delete a message" setting to "Remove it immediately" the folder is deleted correctly. Is it possible to do this just for folders? I tried Shift+Delete and holding Shift while clicking Delete but both did not work, Thunderbird tried and failed to move the folder to trash as usual. It would however be most useful if after failing to move the folder to trash it would give me an option to delete it permanently instead.
