Hi, hope someone can help please

By mistake I set up my 89 year old aunties TB using a Beta version. All of her emails are in that profile. I then installed the stable version but I'm told that the stable version is an older versions and can not import from the Beta.

Specifically the Beta version is 127.0b4 (64-bit) and the stable vesrion is 115.11.1 (64-bit).

Is there any way to recover the emails (and if possible the settings) from the Beta profile to the stable release

Thanks in anticipation

2)I haven't used Thunderbird for sometime. I used to click on the icon and a standard window would appear featuring messages, new and oldbut that doesn't happen anymore. I don't want to find the original page because I will probably lose contact again My IT skills are very limited thanks guys, Chris’

Hello.

I read that thunderbird works with Microsoft 365 and modern authentication. I tested with Microsoft 365 accounts and it worked fine. The problems come with an accounting of Microsoft 365 operated by 21vianet service.

I configured according to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/microsoft-oauth-authentication-and-thunderbird-202 with the IMAP and SMTP settings from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/settings-for-pop-and-imap-access-for-microsoft-365-operated-by-21vianet-ca51235d-afc5-4d7d-843c-3616a37d5771

It complaints "The IMAP server partner.outlook.cn does not support the selected authentication method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the 'Account Settings | Server settings.'"

In SMTP settings there is no option to configure OAuth2

I've been using Thunderbird for years with no issues but suddenly this week it froze and although I could send e-mails from my Mac (running on Sonoma 14.5) I couldn't receive any. There was no message error, just nothing happened: it was frozen. So I finally opted to disinstall and then reinstall Thunderbird and now have incoming messages again but everything else I had: all my tags, e-mails older than a day ago, my address book have all gone. I've tried doing "import from profile "default" then choosing to import accounts and settings, address books, and mail messages but just get a message that "import failed unexpectedly, more information may be available in the Error Console" but I've no clue how to find the Error Console in question. Can anyone walk me through how to fix this issue and recuperate my old Thunderbird account without using all sorts of technical terms? I'm not IT-fluent! Many thanks.

I get the infamous "Unable to connect to your IMAP server. You may have exceeded the maximum number of connections" error in Thunderbird. I just moved to a new Windows 11 laptop but have signed-off the old unit and old phones, leaving just two devices in Google / Security. Obviously, I have reduced the IMAP connections to 1 on the PC. Still, I cannot get emails on this new PC; before reducing the devices, I could get emails on the old PC, the new phone, an iPhone, and an old phone. Turning off the fire wall does not help. I have done many variations of uninstalls / reinstalls on likely combinations of devices. I won't repeat those here but the net outcome seems to be: uninstalled / reinstalled Thunderbird - no effect

shut down new computer and fired up old computer and Thunderbird retrieved new messages immediately

downloaded and installed eM Client - immediately connected and retrieved new messages

downloaded and installed MailBird - immediately connected and retrieved new messages

started Thunderbird and received the too many message.

I just finished a round of installing / reinstalling Thunderbird but with all the AppData/Thunderbird/ folders / profiles deleted. The Wizard failed to identify the server information, which I supplied based on the three sets of working parameters (Tbird, eM, MailBird) but the error this time was a could not connect due to the Username and Password not agreeing.

I don't want to give up Thunderbird but I am out of patience. Please advise if there is some hope for a software fix. I have wasted too much time on this already pursuing a universe of possibilities. Thanks, Don
