Hello all I just started my thunderbird after years of outlook. And I have donated money I hope this helps to keep this alive. With recent 2FA changes I have had to move here. it is years of old emails and for now I am getting them to review later.

But everyone seems nice here.

When I am downloading I notice limits on number of messages in one mailbox in Thunderbird. One mailbox is everything inside one email username right?

Sometimes it stops at 10, 000 Is the limit based on thunderbird or the email server I am getting my emails from ???

Thank you for anticipated help!

I have Thunderbird 115.8.0 installed on my MacBook Pro with two email accounts, Yahoo and Gmail. I have set up the Tools/Message Filters/Block Filters as well. When I first launch Thunderbird all the spam shows up in my inbox, and just sits there. What I have to do is go to Tools/Message Filters at which point I'm asked to select an account. I select Yahoo (my primary account) and then "Run Filters" before anything actually happens. Then if I go back to my inbox, the spam emails start disappearing. It seems that Thunderbird does not remember the "Yahoo" selection in filters in between launches. Is there a setting I am missing, or is this just the product of having two different email accounts? Thank you.

I create templates to keep copies of regular correspondence. I copy this text to paste into reply's to enquiries - (yes I know that not the purpose of a template but its the simplest way to have copies of regular reply's on hand) As of today - text copied from a template will not "paste" into an email - it will only "paste without formatting" - which means layout and hyperlinks are not supported . Has worked successfully for a couple of years - but now no. I haven't added any extensions or upgraded systems - it just stopped today - so annoying - any ideas

I have just completed transferring Thunderbird from Windows 10 (32 bit) to Windows 11 (64 bit). Running 115 on both machines. The transfer went well but ..... In my profile in the sub folder Mail, I ended up with 3 folders - Local Folders, XXXX.com (XXXX is the incoming sever name) and XXXX-1.com. This happened purely by chance with the XXXX-1 file containing all the data and folders off the old PC and the XXXX containing the emails from my internet provider from the time my old PC had died until the transfer.

I renamed the XXXX-1 file and opened it in Thunderbird - all the emails were there.

Seperately I did the same with the XXXX file - no emails appeared in Thunderbird.

If I click on the XXXX file then click on Inbox and open it with Notepad, I can all the new emails. The XXXX file inbox does not contain any of the old emails.

I have tried everything to open the XXXX file in Thunderbird (incluing renaming and cut/paste) all to no avail. And, of course, the emails were deleted off from my internet provider by Thunderbird when they were downloaded!

Can anyone suggest a way I can retrieve the emails off the XXXX file?

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.

I find that when I click on links to take me to website through my email in Thunderbird that I will get an error message that reads "we could not verify the certificate, reason=wronghost"

But, if I copy link and copy into browser it works fine. There is a break in the Thunderbird email to the browser. This does not happen with all links but there are about three or four that I get regularly where it fails.

I have talked to a tech guy and we have tried different things and it always comes back to a break in Thunderbird email.

How do I fix this problem?

Our IMAP server is set up with something called "Dynamic Delivery", which replaces each attachment with a link to the file stored on a server. It then scans the file and replaces the link with the original attachment.

The problem is that I'm using a filter to remove the message from the server immediately, so I get the "stripped' copy of the file with just the link, and evidently the link is invalidated once the message has been scanned.

Is there a way to get Thunderbird to delay before downloading messages? I think that would solve the problem almost always. I don't want to have to leave the messages on the IMAP server, there's a retention cutoff and I want my messages to persist.

Hello. I recently went back to Thunderbird after having used the default Mail app in Windows 10 and 11 for some time. I am pleased with how it works and intend to now use it as my default email client. However, I am concerned that the option to make images visible in emails extends to the entire program, and emails that my mail providers have identified as spam and sent to a "Junk" folder will show embedded images. This was not an issue with the Mail app in Windows.

This is not good for security and privacy, as displaying images on spam messages is a way for spammers to confirm an account is live and thus continue sending their garbage. Would it be possible to have Thunderbird block images *only* in specific folders of the user's choosing, while still be able to see them in the rest of the user folders?

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.

Trying to help a client.

He's in his late 80s and has motor function issues due to illness.

It seems that a recent update has changed the behavior of TB for the worse for him.

He's accustomed to dragging a file (PDF File mainly) to the TB app icon on his desktop. Up until recently, this would launch TB and open a new message with the file attached. Now, it only opens TB?

His motor function problems makes using the W10 "Send to" dialogue impossible really, can't get the cursor to the submenu to select "Mail Recipient" .. That's why I set him up with the above method in the first place.

Launching TB then creating a new message, and adding the attachment manually works, but is also more cumbersome than the method he'd been able to use for years now.

Has anyone else sen this change in behavior? I was going to roll back to the previous update, but it looked as if the latest update before today was long before the change in behavior was observed?

It'd be great if the next update fixed this, and he could get back to something that's comfortable and works for him.

Thunderbird will not connect to my bt mail. I have tried Mailbird, Outlook and others and they will not connect. I have checked configuration with BT and they say all OK. Have changed password - no change. Manually configured with password - no change. My PC has had a new SSD since and still will not connect. I have Broadband with BT so I get the same privaligies as Premium. I have malwarebytes and that allows them to connect. Up until a couple of weeks ago it worked OK and then suddenly it stopped working. Had my local Techie shop look at it - no result. They said it must be BT, but spoke to them again today and they say it should work - certainly with outlook. They recognise connection, but says either config or password incorrect. Changed password again, but no change. Can you please tell me where the problems is. Thanks
