There does not appear to be any visual or other indicator of when IMAP has fully synced, either on an account or folder basis. I have an IMAP Account with 25+GB of mail across several hundred folders and subfolders. If I check the box "Keep messages in all folders for this account on this computer" (as well as the "Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age", it can take many many days (as the server eventually throttles my bandwidth for a period of time). Naturally, I get all the headers pretty quickly, and can see that visually in the folder pane. But then I have to open Activity Manager and keep an eye on what it's doing. But there's really no way of knowing when it's done synchronizing for the account, or at a folder level (e.g. I can see the number of emails in a folder and the size of the folder in the folderpane, but all I can assume is that those are headers that were downloaded... I don't know if the actual message bodies have been downloaded unless I happen to see it in the activity manager.) Is there a way to get a visual on this, or a status somewhere?

TB downloading of headers vs. bodies and/or attachements

According to this link, for *unsynchronized* message, the message body remains on the server until the user clicks on the message in TB's message list: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/imap-synchronization#w_synchronization

TB has a Message Synchronizing setting "Keep messages in all folders for this account on this computer", with "Avanced" settings to "Download" "for offline use" on the basis of individual folders. However, I can' find a setting to control whether TB downloads (i) just the headers; or (ii) headers, bodies, and/or attachments.

(1) Is it the case that TB will *always* download just headers until users click on it in the message list, at which point it becomes a "synchronized message" (as defined above) and locally retained in its entirety?

(2) If so, is there a way to have TB always download messages+body+attachments without having to click each one?

(3) On the other end of the bandwidth usage spectrum, is there a way to have TB not even download headers (say, upon startup) until the user actually enters the folder for viewing?

Is there an add-on that will allow me to move the lists in my address book to another computer? In an earlier post, someone had recommended MoreFunctionsForAddressBook but apparently it is not compatible with TB 78.

Just to be clear - I'm not looking to transfer address books, but lists that I use for group mailing purposes.

Thanks for your help.

Hello.

I have tried everything to try to move my profile to an external drive (a network attached drive in this case, synology).

Every time I follow the guides (using various methods), when I reboot into thunderbird I get an empty (and slightly weird looking) interface, which crashes upon any input.

I have very limited storage in my Mac mini, and I want to move my thunderbolt storage container over to my NAS. This is a synology DS 1618+’attached via 10gbe.

Any further ideas?

Ta!

Miles.

I run my own archive methodology in Thunderbird. In the .thunderbird path with thunderbird not running I usually rename the INBOX to Inbox_year, for example Inbox_2019. I then make a new Inbox and restart thunderbird. I do the same with the SENT mail directory. I am quietly confident that this is what I have done for more than two decades. The process is NOT working at the moment. I don't really know why and I cannot find any documentation that will help me link or directly attach the getting of mail to the new inbox. It is linked to the moved folder. That is new mail is put into the Inbox_year box and not the standard inbox. I admit to not under the presented icons. The icon associate with the Inbox and the Inbox_year just move is an envelope with an unsealed flap. A;; the other icons are folder icons. I hope that my description is sufficient. Thanks and regards Peter

Automatic Login Progression for Multiple Email Acct Logins

I am running Thunderbird 52.9.1 (32-bit) on a WIN XP SP3 computer and Thunderbird 86.0b3 (32-bit) on a WIN 10 machine. Both computers use the same keyboard & monitor via a KVM switch. When logging in on the older WIN XP computer the login popup automatically progresses to the next email account for login when the current one is successful. I have 3 active email accounts loaded the exact same way in TB in both machines. When logging in on the Win 10 machine the TB login window will not automatically progress to the next email account so that I can log in. I have to manually move the mouse cursor to the next account. I have the same 3 email accounts loaded in the WIN 10 version as I do on the WIN XP SP3 machine. Is there any kind of hidden command that I can set/reset to have Version 86.0b3 (32-bit) automatically progress through all three email logins like it does in the much older 52.9.1 (32-bit) version? Or does this need to go in as a suggestion for future versions of TB?

Hi,

Why its not possible for over 10 years now to filter my mails by sender domain? (optionally respecting subdomains) ?? Neither by Thunderbird nor any other mail tool.

Do someone know any tool, addon, setting to manage my mails by sender-domain ?? please!!! Its not an option to build thus filters manually! There are too many domains meanwhile.

It seems too easy: on mail receive -> move mail to folder named by received mail domain.

Or can anyone explain to me, why its impossible?

I am a new Thunderbird user & I am having multiple problems figuring things out. Two very basic Q's, pls: 1) I somehow added a search field in the bottom toolbar... now, I can't undo it. How do I remove the search field in the toolbar? 2) I have also tried & tried to make the font larger in my inbox. There are different settings that seem to purport to adjust font sizes, but I can't get any to work.

I'm sure that there are existing threads that have long since answered these Q's. Hopefully, someone can direct me to those discussions. Thx. John

To Whom It May Concern:

Are there any plans to integrate Thunderbird with the Windows 10 Notification system, and suspend Thunderbird's own internal notification? The Thunderbird notification does not display all notifications when emails are received from multiple accounts; it's thought that the Windows 10 notification might be superior at stacking all new messages.

Recent Updated TB 78.7.1. The entire new look, is craptaular. Why is it, we do not get a PROMPT that you (Mozilla) are screwing up the interface? I am unable to revert to the previous version, and I am not on any stupid email,spam, RSS feeds that tell me useless stuff. I read through the 'whats new' and I understand the english words, but the rest is gobbledygook as I am not a programmer or developer. FYI I have Autism, and sudden changes to layouts, upset me alot. If you are offended by my complaining here, please let me know how to contact you, and I will, and you can observe my rage! Classic example of companies not giving two **** about people with mental/medical issues. Only what Mozzila or MS thinks is good enough

Gentlemen:

Since the last Thunderbird update, I am CONSTANTLY getting this popup: The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 327 MB of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you. PLEASE, I don't EVER want to see this popup message again. I have my Trash totally under control and this thing is driving me crazy!

I have purchased Mailwasher Pro to identify spam before it is downloaded to my computer. The problem is that even when I untick the option to "check for new messages every x minutes" new emails are still being downloaded. This means that I am not able to stop certain messages being downloaded to my computer before I have a chance to vet and delete them via Mailwasher Pro. Just in case, I have also unticked "Allow immediate server notifications when new messages arrive" - I don't know what that does so unticked it in case it was causing the problem but still the emails download automatically.

Can anyone advise me please what might be causing this problem? I have contacted support at Mailwasher Pro and they have assured me that the app does not interfere with the way Thunderbird downloads emails. Also the support person I was emailing told me that he had his settings the same as mine and his emails do not get downloaded automatically.

Thank you
