I was using Thunderbird to move from an old Gmail account to a new one. The instructions said to use an add-on called Copy Folder but as I got into the process, turns out Copy Folder is no longer available. Both emails are IMAP. I manually transferred the emails. I was using labels so I wanted to keep that configuration. The labels were all created in the new gmail. SOME of the emails went and some didn't. Thunderbird is showing all the emails just fine. When I open the new gmail account, all the emails are not showing.

I have refreshed Thunderbird. How do I get the emails that it is showing to appear in the new gmail account? I don't plan to use Thunderbird going forward. I just wanted to use to move emails.

I'm not tech savvy so please help me finish this process. Thank you.

Up until now, I have been very happy with Thunderbird. I have used it for many years and always accepted upgrades when offered. However, the upgrate from verison 68 to 78 has been a disaster for me. When I allowed Thunderbird to install the new version, it no longer recognized any of my previous configuration or mailboxes/folders.

I use POP servers and keep all of my email on my local disc. I have between 50 to 100 local folders, many with folders within folders. The upgrade did not find my existing login's for my email services (gmail and Comcast). It did not find any of my existing mailboxes/folders. In fact, it seemed to be a completely new installations, asking for my email services credentials. It did not find any of the many folders I have organized to hold all my old Emails. Those are kept in .MBX files with .TOC files.

How do I recover my old configuration and mail boxes? Is there a program that will convernt my old email folder structure to whatever the new Thunderbird uses? Or do I have to retrograde back to version 68 to keep my old mailboxes/folders?

I am very disappointed that no warning was given about the major changes and significant functional differences before asking to install the upgrade. This problem has cost me over a days work and much frustration. (And just so you know, I am a computer professional/programmer, so I have some idea about what I am doing.)

Hi guys, I have Thunderbird 78. I also have yubikey 5. I use ybk with pgp keys to login to other systems. I found a problem. When ybk is inserted there is a problem, Thunderbird hangs (sometimes) and can not send any messages (it says that is connected with the smtp server, progress bar shows full/100% and it hangs up). I have to disconnect ybk, turn off Thunderbird, turn on - then the error message appears (pic) that informs me that Thunderbird is working, I have to press the "close Thunderbird" and then I can use Thunderbird again. That solves the problem.

Any idea ?

TB compact seemingly fails with incorrect savings amount (win10)

Hi,

I have TB 78.4.0 32-bit and am holding at that version until some add-ons are updated. Ever since upgrading to the 7x version of TB, folder compacting does not seem to work. I have the option checked to compact when it would save 250MB. What happens is that I delete a message, TB prompts me to compact, I say yes, it tries to compact, and then the next time I delete a message it prompts me to compact again.

Not only does the amount of space it claims I will save by compacting unchanged on subsequent prompts, but over the months it continues to get larger - right now it says I will save over 1GB. It makes no difference if I have it prompt me or just compact automatically.

When I click on compact I have tried switching away and doing something else for an hour or two to make sure I'm not interrupting it somehow, so I don't think it's that.

What I have noticed is that it seems to start compacting local folders, and then gets "interrupted" by attempting to purge my main Yahoo IMAP account (all the others are gmail). It'll say something like "Compacting Local Folders: Trash" and then suddenly the status bar switches midway to logging into the IMAP, it attempts to purge the IMAP inbox, and then it figures it's done and quits after checking the IMAP folders. It doesn't continue/resume the local folder compacting. I'm pretty sure it thinks it's finished, since it says that compacting is complete and I've saved 1.2 GB, and then 5 minutes later when I delete a message it tells me that I need to compact to save 1.2 GB of space and the same thing starts all over again.

I've tried right-clicking on individual mail folders to compact them one by one from the menu, but that appears to do nothing - it doesn't even try to compact.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get compacting to work again?

Thanks!

For a while now, TB has this annoying habit that sometimes when I delete or move a message or series of messages to another folder they seem to go but then immediately reappear. I'm using IMAP to my own Postfix email server. The strange thing is that if I reperform the operation (delete or move) it works successfully this time. So it's kinda hard to reproduce reliably to debug this.

I have an add-on which is installed from the public add-on store (?). This add-on works quite good.

Nevertheless I made some tiny adjustments in the source to fullfill my needs. I can manually load the file from the add-on manager which works as well.

But as soon as I do one of the two task:

  • restart the whole computer (or logout and login)
  • Check for Update

the manually loaded xpi is gone. It is only the public one available.

I was using one of the older versions of Thunderbird (76) but I had to start using the latest version (86) because I needed it to sync with my work email.

I am running a debian-based Linux distribution. The older version was installed through the package manager, but the newest beta release came with the executable in the folder I downloaded. I therefore never really 'installed' it, I am just running the executable and everything is working fine.

My questions are:

1. How can I transfer my personal Thunderbird calendar from my older Thunderbird? I have other calendars elsewhere which I have already synced to the newest release, but the Thunderbird-specific calendar I was using in the older release seems to be gone. I found a folder inside the hidden .thunderbird folder called 'tvpkve6n.default-default'. Inside it, I see a folder called 'calendar-data'. I thought copying this folder to the current folder of the beta release would do the trick, but that didn't work. I also copied it to a beta folder inside the hidden .thunderbird folder, but that also did not work. Any suggestions?

2. How can I import my saved list of contacts from the older to the newest release? I couldn't find the file where my contacts are saved, and now every time I have to write an email I have to first go find that person's email, which is quite frustrating.

3. I now seem to have two instances of Thunderbird installed on my computer, which doesn't seem right. In the forum of my linux distribution, I was adviced to not run the older release again, because that might break the functioning of the newest release I am currently using. How can I 'install' the newest beta release, so every time I open, or update, Thunderbird, I will be using the newest release only?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Can I do the following? My reasons are given below.

  1. Make a copy of my email messages. My profile is in the folder np2coeun.default, so I think my messages are here: D:\... np2coeun.default\ Mail\ mail.mydomain.co.uk\ Local Folders\ this folder is 13.6 Gb – I have a lot of important stuff in there
  2. Save my copy of Local Folders somewhere else (and make a backup on an external drive)
  3. Uninstall Thunderbird
  4. Delete the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\
  5. Install the latest version of Thunderbird
  6. Import my stuff from my saved copy of Local Folders
  7. Set up my 29 email accounts from scratch and rebuild my profile settings, message filters, etc.
  • My reasons for wanting to do this are problems which have been building up for a while and are now intolerable:
  • Thunderbird takes up to half an hour to boot (start up)
  • Thunderbird sometimes doesn't download messages from my ISP. I don't think there is a problem at my ISP because my Android phone downloads without a hitch using the Samsung email app.
  • Thunderbird recently started downloading multiple copies of emails – the only way I have found to prevent it is to tell it not to leave messages on the server – but I like to keep them there for 30 days as a backup
  • Thunderbird has started corrupting folder and sub-folder names in My folders

I think the following are relevant:-

  • All my email accounts are POP3.
  • My mail server is provided by my ISP along with my domain names. I don't use Gmail or Hotmail or anything like that.
  • I update Thunderbird every time I am prompted, except the last prompt. Current version 78.7.0 (32-bit)
  • My OS is Windows 8.1

Thanks for reading this long post. Michael (I am on London time)

This morning I tried logging into my E-mail only to find my old Thunderbird version has been upgraded to 78.7. Usually I get a notification and the option to install, but this did not happen on this occasion. I checked the versions using 'sudo apt policy thunderbird' and get;

The new version did not carry over my old data and all I have is a blank install with no messages, contacts, calendar or anything else.

I desperately need to get into my emails and calendar. Can anyone tell me how to do this, or how to revert back to my previous build without losing anything? This is a real annoyance and there was never any warning at all that my machine was being upgraded, otherwise I would have declined.

Hello. I am using Thunderbird Portable Edition 78.5.0 on PortableApps platform 17.1.1. I have many (over 70) folders, most of which are populated by filters which are enabled to run automatically. In the past, folders which had new messages were shown by a change of colour together with an asterisk. More recently, this is just shown by the colour of the folder name changing from black to blue; this is not always easy to spot, especially since my eyes are not what they were. However, a more worrying problem has arisen in recent weeks. The indication of a new message disappears before I open the folder; the folder name changes back to black, implying that there are no new messages in that folder. This seems to be random, or at least I have not been able to discern any pattern. In addition, sometimes newly-arrived messages are no longer indicated by an asterisk; this also appears to be random, and seems to be in folders that do indicate a new message as well as those that don't. Now, I am having to go through every folder to check there are no new messages, which is obviously inconvenient at the least. I had hoped that all the recent updates might have solved the issue, but they haven't. I would be grateful for any help in overcoming this problem. Cheers.
