I have a fresh install of TB 78.8 on Windows 10. I use it to access my work email which is hosted by Google. I got the calendar to sync with Provider but gContactSync no longer works and I can't figure out any of the other options. I've ready about TbSync and Provider for CalDev & CardDev but can't figure out how to make it work. Could someone provide a dummies guide to getting my contacts sync'd? Thanks

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?

When I delete an email on my iphone or Thunderbird, I want the email to automatically delete in the other format.

For example, if I delete an email to Trash on my IPhone, I want it to automatically delete to Trash in Thunderbird. Also, if i delete an email while on Thunderbird, I want the same email to delete to Trash on my IPhone.

How do I set the above up?

Thanks in advance, Garry

I mistakenly created a global inbox in Thunderbird 78.8.0 for my two email accounts. One is a POP server, the other IMAP, so obviously it doesn't work. My mistake. I now have a folder named "inbox" under my "local folders" which is redundant. There is no left-click option to delete or remove it. How do I get rid of it and reverse the creation of the combined inbox? I could not see an option under settings. Help appreciated.

How do I turn on or off the little bar graph in the status bar which shows the percentage of maximum storage space used on the mail server.

I have obviously found the setting in the past as most of my email accounts show this. Now I want to turn it on for another account I have added, but I can't find how.

I wish to make the Menu toolbar font bold and perhaps a bit bigger. How do I do this?

Also less importantly the background color used to be set by my Walnut theme which is now defunct and replaced by a partial theme with a white background. I would like to change that as well.

See how nice my old TB looked?

Now on Windows 10 2004 and new TB .

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.

Using V78.7.0 (64-bit)...

When accessing the "Manage Tags..." function, the list of tags is empty and the only option available is "New...". That option works but, if you later go back to "Manage Tags...", even a newly added tag is not in the list. The only way to later manipulate tags is to shut down Thunderbird, edit the "prefs.js" file directly, and restart. It is the only way that works but, surely, that's not the way people are supposed to manage/customize tags.

Am I missing something? Is this a known problem?

My e-mail messages in inbox are arranged with newest message first. I like to read the messages in chronological order. When a message is deleted I want the next newer message to open, but it goes the other way and I cannot find the setting for this. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Hi I want to combine my 3 inboxes. I tried to follow the instructions for the subject above but the last option, (in box for different account) isn't there. Can anyone help, is the problem that I'm using a IMAP server rather than POP email.

Is there another solution that I'm missing? My Thunderbird is, Version 78.7.1

With the latest update my message toolbar got changed and I can't figure out how to fix it. This is the one with Reply, Forward, Archive, Junk, Delete, More. I want the Delete button (the most frequently used) to be on the far right side with a gap beside it so that other buttons aren't pressed by accident. There is no customize option for this toolbar and the customize dialog for the main toolbar doesn't work for this toolbar.

I think this probably got broken in the latest upgrade. Until it is fixed, where can I find where this customization is stored so that I can fix the toolbar to a more logical layout?

Thanks.
