I write my e-mails in a green font. That is how I used to do it in Outlook and as soon as I started writing it stayed as green after setting it up. However I haven't found a way to do that in Thunderbird that is satisfactory. The main way I see mentioned is changing the setting in Composition > HTML Style > Take out use reader's colors and set green as text, however this also changes the color of the Thunderbird signature and of the messages being replied. My wish is to only make green whatever I write for the message, not the full e-mail. Is there a way to set it to a color?

If this setting isn't in standard Thunderbird a plugin suggestion would also work! What I wish would be equivalent to having the green font color selected at the start of any e-mail with everything else default!

Many thanks,

Kael

I have used Thunderbird for years and until recently have never had problems with sharing files from Win 10 Explorer via Mail with Thunderbird 102.7.7 64bit as my default Mail app. Recently however whenever I select a file in Explorer to 'share' the email icon does not become 'live'. Other icons are active. I am therefore unable to email a file. I have seen a mention somewhere that it might be possible to cure this issue by uninstalling and reinstalling Thunderbird - if that is the solution then how do I preserve all the emails in my current application? Your advice would be appreciated. Dave Hayward

Hi. I'm looking for a way to block message removal by the server in the IMAP protocol - the "(server) append only mode" (it should be still possible to delete/move message from Thunderbird).

Why? I see 2 main use cases:

1. The (corporate) server has message retention set globally (e.g. to 1 year) which "cannot" be changed. Users might want to keep their "important" email longer (and in addition, keep it in the same folders as before, not using the folders copy in the "Local folders" space).

2. Due to the unexpected situation - a server error, fire in a data center, a ransom attack, malicious email provider - all the email (or some of them) are removed from the server. Thunder would sync with the server removing the messages from the synchronized folder on a computer (sure, backup is good, but for the "silent action" - e.g. part of the emails deleted (or encrypted), it might take too long to detect that problem and still have a valid backup).


The are some (not perfect) workarounds, including:

  • keeping old emails in the "Local folders" - two places to search (or many if you have a folder hierarchy with the automatic filtering)
  • a separate, local IMAP server to keep an "append only" copy of the message (e.g. isync, offiline imap), possibly to be used by Thunderbird (instead of the upstream IMAP server)
  • using POP3 (with its own downsides :) )


An obvious downside of the implementation in Thunderbird - which users of that feature have to be aware - is not doing any delete/move operations on the server (e.g. with the webclient or some other IMAP client). Nevertheless, to fulfill the aforementioned requirement it doesn't seem a high cost.

Questions: 1. Is it possible to achieve in Thunderbird itself? 2. Is there any API to help implement that as an extension? 3. Have you - by any chance - tried to implement that using the third party tools (e.g. a local IMAP server which is used by TB) and can recommend any solution? 4. (Bonus) Do you think it would be an useful addition to Thunderbird?

Hi Team, This issue of rendering to print has been around for a while, but I thought I'd bring up. A Newsletter I receive sometimes shows a poll result (see image; Screen Newsletter Poll Result) It looks like it is done by stretching an image to fit the ratio.

… I pulled that code for one of the bars from the "View Source" option.

In Print though, it looks quite different (see image; Print Newsletter Poll Result 1 page only) The first bar takes up 5 pages. The image, POLL_bars_blue.jpg, is 1×20px, so why Thunderbird renders it to 5 pages deep rather than just 20px did make me wonder.

Does anyone have a clue? Can it be constrained somehow?

Is anybody else experiencing issue trying to edit existing Address Book entries in Thunderbird 102.7.1 on Windows 10? I open an address entry to edit, and in this case, delete a second address entry where "United States of America" somehow found its way into the Street Address field on a Work address (the only entry in that address). I can delete the entry, press Tab, Save, and in the summary, it is initially gone, then pops right back up after about a second. I can also set the address to None while editing as well, to no effect.

This address book app looks like it is reused code from a failed startup designed and written when Windows 3.0 was all the rage.

I do use TBsync (you know, a THIRD PARTY add-on, to sync the address book <roll eyes>), but even with that turned off, the same thing occurs, so that is not the issue.

And... it's not everything. For example, I can edit the STATE and that will stick. But, try to eliminate a Notes entry? Not happening. It initially is gone as soon as I save the edit, but a second later, it pops right back up on the summary screen. So, at least trying to eliminate an address entry and a Notes entry doesn't work.

Anybody else?

I recently start receiving error: "The messages could not be moved or copied to folder 'Amazon on Local Folders' because writing to folder failed. To gain disk space, from the File menu, first choose Empty Trash, and then choose Compact Folders, and then try again." for all email moves to local folders.

Windows 10 OS build 19044.2546 Thunderbird 102.7.1 (64 bit)

Compact and empty trash - no change. Downgrade version - no change. Totally uninstall and reinstall - no change. Plenty of disk, but current local was large, so: Created empty local folder on system disk - same. Created dummy pop account (not attached to a server) new so 'empty' - same. check disk - no problems found.

Since I tried various target drives, folder/accounts, doesn't seem to be a profile issue, but with complete uninstall/install won't think it's an application issue, so ??? Also, occurred when downgraded to version I know was working.

In process of moving profile from Windows to Mac - will take a bit, so results pending...

Made a copy of the profile file; downloaded & installed version 102.7.1. 4. Brought up the new version--obviously not the version I'd been using as everything is so different (see #1 above, it was set to do automatic updates--???). Messages and filters are back but contacts are missing. 5. Did an import from the profile that I had copied (see #3 above) and restarted Thunderbird. Still no contacts.

Question: How do I get contacts back???
