I have Thunderbird linking to a gmail account with IMAP. I have set Message Synchronizing to 'Keep all messages in all folders for this account on this computer', however it seem as though TB only downloads the headers and goes to the server for each email...The activity manager seems to constantly be 'Bringing the folder inbox up to date'... and regularly 'Indexing messages', even when I have no new email... Also ...regularly For some reason TB seems to run very slowly. Even if I am typing a new email in TB it only accepts 1 keystroke every couple of seconds....Even with my slow typing TB can't keep up with displaying the characters on the screen.. What might I have missed in the settings to cause this... btw, this is fairly recent... 4-5 months ago I didn't have this problem... Any advice appreciated. Thanks, Rick

Juno very suddenly refused to accept my password yesterday which is saved on the computer, so I cannot get to my email. Why would they do that and how can I get into email. I got the box that asks for a new password which I filled in, but the site still refused to accept it. Please send the answer to GrandmaDonnaPowell@gmail.com. Thank you.

Been having this problem now for quite a while and it is getting annoying to the point I'm considering switching email clients at this point.

I have 2 email accounts setup, one is my private email, one my business email. Naturally my business email is quite busy compared to my private one. Lately, for no discernable reason, the business email will refuse to check messages. Even in the tools > activity manager, nothing shows up when it is asked to get messages. The only way I've found to restore this is to go into the profile folder and delete the global-messages-db.sqlite, let it reindex (which take close to 20 minute) and then maybe after restarting again it might start getting the message again (even this isn't 100% effective). Even if it does work, it is only a temporary fix and it will soon break again. There are no error messages, just no response when asked to check messages. If it is left running for a very long time (typically hours) it sometimes recovers on its own and will suddenly deluge me with hours worth of emails.

I have attempted to clean out history to see if it was just overflowing, but even after getting rid of multiple years of history, cutting the size roughly in half, it has no discernable affect other than speeding up that reindexing.

Meanwhile my private email account works perfectly fine and gives me no issues. However, my business email is a lot more important and needs to be responding promptly. I can't have it refusing to get message for long period for no reason.

Any help on this matter would be appreciated as I really don't want change clients, but I may have no choice soon.

I sent out an email to my siblings and nephews about a tax issue on land we own. We all followed that same thread for several weeks now - asking questions, etc. Yesterday I received an email from one of the recipients bunched in with that that thread that included two additional addressees and a different subject line. One of the additional recipients told me she did not receive the tax information thread, only the RSVP email.

This confuses me - What gives?

Hello,

This is more of a puzzling question. I have been receiving multiple daily notices to Compact the Folders, to save 503MB of space. Even after doing a "Compact" I get another request or pop-up to do it again. I even went to the pull down menu and did a "Compact" from there and again less that an hour later another pop-up!! I have upgraded to the latest version 115.8.0 (64-bit) and the same thing happens.

I know I have an option to make the "Compacting" automatic but I am concerned that it will happen constantly and block me from normal usage at the worst time.

The the question is: What am I missing or what is the solution??

Thanks,

Les

Start new Windows session. Start Thunderbird and works OK. Shut Thunderbird down and try to re-start during same Windows session and it will not launch. Reboot Windows and try to start Thunderbird and works OK. Alternatively, going into Task Manager there will be a number of Thunderbird processes running. If I manually end them all (while Thunderbird is NOT active) then I can restart as normal too. This all began with 124.0 Beta 1. Never had the issue prior.

Also, Thunderbird crashes if restarting within the app. By this I mean clicking the X it appears to close (excepting those persistent processes running) but "Restart Thunderbird" such as to launch Troubleshooting mode or from the "Restart to update Thunderbird" config crashes the app with 100% consistency.

I use my gmail account in thunderbirdapp on windows 11. When I start to compose an email in thunderbird app, it will create a draft after few minutes automatically (this happens when i am drafting a long email like work email that takes 10 15 mins with breaks in between). The draft gets saved in the 'draft' section in thunderbird app and also on gmail web as well (gmail android app or gmail from gmail.com). When I finally send the email from thunderbird app, the draft from the thunderbird app gets removed however the draft in my gmail web REMAINS. I do see the sent mail in the 'sent' folder in both thunderbird app as well as my gmail web or android gmail app however a copy still remains in drafts in gmail app/web. This creates an issue where i have multiple drafts in my gmail which only show when i access gmail from gmail app or on web. Please help me fix this issue. For reference some info is below regarding my setting of thunderbird app on my windows 11. The settings of the android app for drafts is set by default by the app to Kepp drafts in: other :Drafts in xyz@gmail.com. This setting was set automatically when i started using the thunderbird app. Thanks.

Since updating TB to 115.8 I have been getting this "unable to write email to the mailbox" error on one specific POP3 account. The account starts the download process, runs through perhaps a dozen or so mails, before getting stuck on (by the looks of the status bar) one particular email being filtered into a folder) and then crashing out. I have tried thus far, by means of elimination

1: Only one specific POP3 account is affected, others using the same domain are fine. 2: Plenty of spare space on the HDD, no permission issues 3: Copied the mailbox store to a new location and updated TB to use that location - no change. 4: Repaired the inbox and a few sample subfolders. 5: Created subfolders of a few sample folders with no emails in, and amended filters accordingly - so new mails are being filtered to a virgin file. 6: Disabled all filters, created a new blank inbox subfolder and directed everything in the download, into that - same problem.

I'm confident that all file permission, storage space & corrupt mailbox possibilities, have been eliminated and this is a TB bug. Some further observations...

I access the affected mailbox via IMAP from a mobile device, before treating TB (using POP3) as the master storage. TB then has a rolling 90day delete as part of the POP3 config, so it should only download anything new since the last synch, but maintain a 90day history. All synch attempts now, are downloading mails from mid-November and thus creating duplicates - I have manually logged into the domain mailbox and intentionally deleted the oldest 50 mails, as a test. All that happens is that the problem is shifted 50 mails up the list.. TB seems to have forgotten what is actually a new mail.

If I was able to revert TB to the previous version, I would - and am still tempted to research the mechanics of doing this.
