I have managed to thoroughly foul up Thunderbird to the point that I can neither receive nor send emails. I also use Gmail, but store all the emails I want to keep in Thunderbird because it’s so much easier to create and manage folders. I have 1.61 gigs of emails dating back to 1996; many should have been deleted years ago, but quite a few are of sentimental value and a scant few have financial information I may need someday. The problem started a couple of days ago when I read a description of IMAP and thought I should make sure that Gmail and Thunderbird are always in sync (I know, I know, but it was late at night and I wasn’t hitting on all 8/6/4 cylinders). In that less-than-stellar state, I started following the instructions for setting up for IMAP as well as POP3, but apparently managed to make enough mistakes that when I tried to Get Messages it asked for a password, and rejected what I entered. I was sure that it was correct, but when I checked for saved passwords (via the Options menu) the only one it showed was for smtp.gmail.com, which was last changed more than a year ago. I cannot get it to accept any password that I can remember.

Clicked Get Messages. Thunderbird responded with Window titled Error with account GmailforVan. It contained the following message:

Sending of password for user vanw39 did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.

followed by

Login to server pop.gmail.com with username vanw39 failed.

At one point I thought I had remembered the correct password, but when I entered it the following message appeared at the bottom of the screen:

GmailforVan: Connected to pop.gmail.com

After a few moments, a window titled Activity Manager window popped up in the upper left corner with this message:

Connection to server pop.gmail timed out.

Can anyone help me get Thunderbird working again? Yes, I can send and receive email using Gmail, but I really want to get back all my saved messages.

If I make a copy of the folder that contains all my old messages, then deleted Thunderbird, reinstalled it, deleted my old account, then created a new account with the same email address, could I get access to those old messages?

It may be all I need to do is find my password but, if necessary, I can delete my account and start over (after backing up my mail folder). I really really hope someone can (and will) help.

I have reviewed as best I can, and followed as best I could, the recommendations to others who had this problem. It doesn't seem to me it's CPU overload. I have automatic updates configured for both TB and Windows 10 home.Over the last several months, all TB operations have been slow, and seem to be getting slower. In the time I've been using TB happily, at least a decade I'd guess, I've never had anything like this, including on my current PC. Not one activity starts promptly, all have the dreaded blue loading circle. It's most marked on initial load, but appears nearly all the time, including while typing text into emails. Thanks for your help.

G'day from Down Under

i am using first install of new TB 78, on W10 laptop.. after click on desktop TB icon I see blue windows, and it goes to blank silver screen and it stalls. during trying to find a way around the stall I have stumbled across an unusual procedure , which works ,every time. I click lightly on the laptop keyboard blue light power icon , it blinks slowly , I then press spacebar , and TB then proceeds to the normal scenery picture screen on which I click and can then login my user name and TB activates and runs smoothly ... I can repeat this procedure every time ... why do I have to do this ? why does the unusual keyboard combination work ? last minute thought ... could it somehow be related to I do not have automatic updates allowed ? is there some TB coding expert who could answer this ? who ? how contact ? thanks to all who may read this and be able to help ..

I use Thunderbird to connect to my ISP ( Plusnet ) and since the upgrade to TB ver 78.10.0 a couple of days ago, when prompted, I have been unable to connect properly to the incoming mail server at Plusnet, mail.plus.net. TB says it is connected to the server, but I never get the password prompt, and eventually it times out and I am unable to read or download my emails through TB. I am using POPmail on Port 110 on mail.plus.net with no security set. I connect to the outgoing mail server fine and I can send emails from the laptop (running latest version of Windows 10). I have talked to Plusnet, and they have not been able to identify anything at their end. Are there any TB issues that you are aware of that could be causing this. My email is john@johnwelch.plus.net.

Regards John

I've used Thunderbird for a few years both on my desktop and laptop. Recently when opening the programme it gets stuck on the inbox of one of my accounts and I cannot move to any other window. I momentarily see a glimpse of the normal opening window with the listings down the left hand side, but that's all. I can find no way of moving away from this one fixed window. This is only happening on my desktop; the programme opens normally on my laptop.

I've tried uninstalling, turning off the pc, turning it back on and then re-installing, but this makes no difference.

Any advice would be most welcome

I am very frustrated with the latest edition of Thunderbird. It has stopped receiving and sending emails.

Here is the situation: iMac, late 2012 (yeah, it's old ... but it works), OS 10.15.7. Thunderbird, 78.10.1. NortonLifeLock / Norton Security 8.6.3, build 61. Earthlink is my ISP for mail.

Thunderbird was receiving and sending emails, albeit sometimes slowly, until sometime May 3 when Thunderbird upgraded. Then, TB hangs in the process of connecting to the POP server. When I attempt to send email, I get the following message: "Sending of the message failed. "Failed due to unexpected error 80004005. No description is available. "The message could not be sent using Outgoing server (SMTP) smtpauth.earthlink.net for an unknown reason. "Please verify that your Outgoing server (SMTP) settings are correct and try again."

I've double checked the settings within TB for Earthlink. I've read the connection problem / solutions. I turned off the Firewall as an experiment (still could not receive email). I started my iMac in safe mode to further test whether there was interference between Norton antivirus and TD. And, got a result. TB connected to Earthlink and received all the emails on the server; I could send email w/o error.

Given the state of maleware, etc., it's silly to run w/o antivirus.

What I think I want to do is to roll back to the previous edition of TB ... which appeared to be working. Unless, of course, a update of TB that fixes this particular issue in the near future.

So, what do I do to get myself up and running again?

Nothing whatever about my email account or thunderbird settings had changed, but starting yesterday I could not download my email via TB and got the above error message. I was able to send out a message that was received. I can still login and read my web mail just fine.

I have checked the pop and smtp settings, re-entered my password several times, restarted TB, restarted the whole damn computer, and nothing changes. I tried all of the other given options in TB for authentication method (except insecurely transmitted) and none of those methods would be accepted. I tried STARTTLS and SSL/TLS for security and both are rejected. I have TB 78.10.0 and my last update was 4/21. It worked properly on 4/28 but not 4/29.

I read up on IMAP, which earthlink supports, but I have no other devices to link to and want my emails saved on this computer and not left on the server, so it sounds like a lousy idea.

Between 28 April and 2 May something changed and now I cannot send emails containing either a link or an attachment to SOME addresses (not all). Sending an email containing only plain text works fine.

There is no bounce-back error message. Thunderbird shows the message sent as normal, but the addressee never receives it.

Maybe it's a coincidence, but on 29 April Windows update KB4023057 was installed on my PC.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

It appears to be a combination of AT&T's latest security protocol "Security Key" and Thunderbird's release "78" that is causing issues.

We have two separate email accounts with additional identities that exhibiting the same problems. Without making any changes at the time, the identities quit receiving emails. One worked in the morning and stopped working in the afternoon, the identity in the other computer quit a couple of months ago. Now besides not receiving identity emails, neither account can send email.

The error message says sending of the password failed. I can log into both accounts and all the identities through Yahoo webmail and can send and receive emails just fine. The same is true for our email accounts on our iPhones, they never skipped a beat. One computer is win10 and the other win7 Professional.

The email is set up as "pop". What's a little different is that we have the older Bellsouth email account that is through Yahoo which is through AT&T. AT&T has been zero help with the settings.

I even hired an IT guy to have a try at it. He warned me that he has been through this before with other customers and it boils down to giving up Thunderbird, he couldn't get anywhere.

I really don't want to switch from Thunderbird, with my line of work I have a lot of folders with lots of emails I can't lose. Up to this point, Thunderbird has been great! And I really like its ease of use and functionality.

Please help! This is driving me nuts!

Thank you for your time, Dave ps. If I can get this working with confidence, I'll probably convert over to imap...

I am running Thunderbird v78.10.0 with Lightning.

Recently, Thunderbird began prompting me to compact my folders. Because I really don't trust this process for apps in general (not just TB), I closed TB and made a backup copy of my TB profile first, then I opened TB and told it to go ahead. It stopped partway through and said it could not complete the process because a file was in use by another process (I think--I wish I had saved the message).

Anyway, after TB opened, I noticed that most of my calendar reminders were gone and a lot of my appointments were missing from the calendar.

So I just closed TB, restored the profile from my backup, and everything was back to normal. (Needless to say, I did not compact this time.)

Is there a known problem with compacting folders? Is there any way to troubleshoot this?

Thanks!
