Hello, sorry my english is not that good but I hope we will understand each other. I have a problem with Thunderbird when I label my email with color laber (you know when you right click email you can choose, red, orange, green, blue and purple text) but when I move this mail with label to my custom made folder this mail loses its label and I still see it as black text. Now all my mails are black in my folder and I cant visually differentiate them as I could when color labels were working. Can you please help me what a problem could be? Is it on my site or is it a program problem? I work in a company when this happend to all my colegues. Thanks for your answers.

Migrating a Thunderbord Profile from Windows 7 (32-bit) to Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have installed Windows 10 in a new partition,and one of the last things I have to do is to get Thunderbird profiles set. I have not yet set up Thunderbird, so I have in Appdata\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles:

    qaqkee8x.default
    v73kxnlg.default-release

My profile in Windows 7 is qf00ka5x.default . In the Profiles directory I renamed the default profile by appending "-old". Ten I copied (via xcopy) the qf00ka5x.default directory from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Now I have in the Profiles directory:

    06/30/2020  03:49 PM    <DIR>          .
    06/30/2020  03:49 PM    <DIR>          ..
    04/06/2020  09:21 PM    <DIR>          qaqkee8x.default-old
    06/30/2020  01:11 PM    <DIR>          qf00ka5x.default
    06/29/2020  08:54 PM    <DIR>          v73kxnlg.default-release

When I start Thunderbird with -P, I see two profiles in the "Choose User Profile" pop-up window:

    default-release
    default

If I click on "default-release", Thunderbird opens and asks me to set up the account. If I click "default", then I get a pop-up window with the error message, "Your Thunderbird Profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

Four related questions: 1) Why are there only two profiles listed in the "Choose" window, when I have three profiles there? Is it because I have appended "-old" to one profile name?

2) When I click on "default", which profile is being loaded and failing? Is it my qf profile or the "-old" profile? If it is my qf profile, how can I determine what is wrong with that profile?

3) I also have profiles in Appdata\Local\Thunderbird\Profiles. I did copy my Local qf files from Windows 7 to Windows 10, but I am not sure what is the purpose of this Local Profiles directory.

4) Until I get this problem resolved, can I go back to Windows 7, run Thunderbird, and auto-synch my qf profile between Windows 7 and Windows 10?

This is Thunderbird 68.9.0 .

Thanks.

Thunderbird was working fine for a number of years, and then out of the blue I get this error message when I try to send e-mail: The Mail Server responded 554 5.7.1 (P4) Message Blocked due to Spam Content in the Message.

Nothing has changed...no additions or changes to my Thunderbird e-mail. These are one on one e-mails I'm trying to send...no group mailings. My carrier is RCN and I can send e-mail from my RCN webmail address. I can receive mail with no trouble. RCN claims it's not their issue. BUT.....I also have a Samsung Galaxy 7 phone with an ANDROID OS. I get a similar error message on my RCN e-mail account on the phone. Two totally separate devices....different OS....but same problem. I have changed nothing on the phone...heck I can hardly figure out how to answer an incoming call let alone mess around with e-mail settings. I have two other e-mail accounts on the same desk top computer and phone that both work fine...one is a Yahoo account, and one is a Verizon account. I'm not a high level tech with these devices...please make suggested remedies as simple as possible. Thanks very much....Bob

The noted error message appeared suddenly on my gmail account. I have confirmed that gmail is working properly by accessing it via the web. I have confirmed that my username and password are the same as worked in the immediate past. I have confirmed that account settings have not changed and are reportedly accurate. T-bird seems to work OK with non-gmail email accounts. I have browsed similar complaints on these (and similar) boards (for way too long a time), and they have not been helpful. Unless I'm missing something, the responses are either (a) yes it's a problem and no one has come up with a solution, or (b) instructions that either don't work or don't track any of the screens I can see. I don't know what to do. Mac High Sierra OS.

Is anyone willing/able to start fresh on this for me?

Really liking Thunderbird, but for the last few days I've been getting a very noticeable slowdown of my computer about once a day, which eventually stops once the error message from Thunderbird appears, saying something like "script is busy chrome://messenger/content/folderDisplay.js:203" and it gives me the option of stopping the script.

Is this related to the chat function? If so, is there an option to just disable that entirely? I don't use that function at all.

Thanks :)

For several days now, for unknown reasons, the summary files for many of my email folders (a POP account with Verizon) just keep vanishing from my profile. I have repeatedly recreated the files and repaired the folders, and then at random they vanish again. I updated to 68.10.0, tried starting in Safe Mode, and the same thing keeps happening. I'm running Windows 10 on an HP Pavilion laptop (which keeps giving me all sorts of hell, but that's neither here nor there).

A few days ago I needed to do a System Restore to roll back from a graphics driver update that rendered the computer unusable, and while I can't imagine why that would have affected Thunderbird, it does coincide with when this issue began.

Here's something for the "wish list".

It would be very handy if message filters in Thunderbird could use and/or conditions.

For example, I would like to create a filter that does something like this: email from: news@news.com and (body contains: distribution or body contains: distribute) then move message to: somefolder

If I remove `prefs.js`, then all my email accounts are gone, so I don't want that.

Let me start by stating that I'm aware of the possibility to set up a separate POP account, but this is not an alternative, I need have two IMAP accounts.

As some of you may know when getting a domain thorough googles Domains offering, one have in certain set-up situations use a gmail.com email address which is connected to the domain name, and used as credentials in OAuth2 or when creating or using an app password (from google security using the gmail.com address).

I have a dedicated domain name, let's call it "mydomain.com" which was acquired from and is hosted at Google Domains. When setting up the email account the email address it will be "somethingelse@mydomain.com" and the OAuth2 user and pw is taken from "myname@gmail.com" (which of course is different from "somethingelse@mydomain.com"). This is perfectly legit and used in many other email accounts, among other Outlook (Mac/Windows/web) and Mac OSX mail program without any problem.

The issue with Thunderbird, as I understand, being that myname@gmail.com is connected to "imap.gmail.com" stored at /home/myname/.thunderbird/yu9vjdct.default-release/ImapMail/imap.gmail.com, meaning that I get a "Incoming server already exist" message and hence unable to set up a second account using the same incoming server "imap.gmail.com" ("myname@gmail.com"), but for this other email address "somethingelse@mydomain.com".

Question is; it NOT as simple as stopping/closing Thunderbird and renameing "/home/myname/.thunderbird/yu9vjdct.default-release/ImapMail/imap.gmail.com" (NB! Name of thunderbird version may vary of course) to something else, since I have tried and does mot change the error message, obviously it appears that Thunderbird is set up to only use one and only one of the same "imap" account.

So my question is wheter possible att all do this in Thunderbirde aka solutions ( not using POP, as stated above) or is this simply a (probably an intentional) program feature (and not a "bug"?).

Thanks in advance for support.

I followed all steps to copy Thunderbird profiles successfully to a new Thunderbird downloaded on a new computer. All email accounts, old settings, and folders (very large, 16.9g) are all in the left pane after I launched the new Thunderbird.

However, many folders in Chinese characters are duplicate, and do not show anything inside the folders. I have transferred the profiles to a new computer many times in the past 10 years, and I have been always successful without any problem using the same method to transfer from one computer Thunderbird to a new computer Thunderbird. But, this is the first time I encounter this problem - duplicate folders than contain nothing inside. I first downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird (68.10). It happened. Then, I thought I should try an older version (60), which is my old computer using Thunderbird 6.0. But it has the same duplicate folders that contains nothing or do not show up anything inside.

I searched in the support articles and discussions on Thunderbird. I tried to delete all MSF files in the folders, which took a long time to do, and restarted the Thunderbird. But, it still does not work. I tried to delete the duplicate folders, in many ways, but it did not allow me to delete. When I click on any folder in Chinese characters, it just has no response, blank in the folders, and it shows no files previously saved. But, if I click on the folders in English, they are working, and all messages saved show up.

I need all those folders which I saved for over 20 years on my teaching and research position. I have been perplexed and frustrated as I have tried to remove and reinstall Thunderbird and transfer data over 10 times in the past few days, spent days by days on this task without finding a solution. I think the only way now is to find an expert who knows the Thunderbird well to help me. I am even willing and happy to pay the service and work provided by any Thunderbird expert, so I can resolve the problem to get these folders work. All folders and sub-folders inside contain a lot of messages.

The strange thing that has puzzled me is that all folders and sub-folders in English work fine, and has messages, but those folders and sub-folders in Chinese language are all duplicate and contain no message inside. Please see the pictures attached for your reference. Can anyone kindly help me? Please do email me and alert me when someone would kindly offer help, and email me: sguo@sfsu.edu Thanks very much!

I have over 100 messages in Inbox and other folders.

Thunderbird's folder pane displays the folder name followed by ... for the number of messages in the folder. Hovering over the ... displays the actual number of messages. For the few folders that have less than 10 messages, the actual number of messages is displayed instead of ...

On some upgrades of Thunderbird, before 78.0, the folder pane did display the number of messages in each folder, even when over 1000, but this seems to have been lost.

I've tried changing fonts, through Configure Editor and with a userChrome.css, but this hasn't worked.

Ideally I'd like to increase the width of each column in the folder pane so the number of messages in each folder is displayed, even if the number is 4 digits long.

thanks!
