Unable to connect to your IMAP server

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

Hi, I'm a MTB newbie Version 115.11.1 and am just trying to import my comcast.net address book from CSV. MTB seems to be totally confused about the columns. I'd be happy to adjust the column assignments, as I think I'm supposed to, but it won't let me. The automatically selected column name is the only option allowed in the drop-down. See attached.

Is this by design? Do I need to reorder the columns within the exported file. Seems a bit much really, but ultimately doable, I guess.

Any other options? Or what am I doing wrong

TIA Tim

How to purge local copies of email for IMAP accounts

Once you add a new account, you have to race to open up the settings and turn off the "Download all mails" setting that is hardwired as the default. Even after having done that, I am left with GB of copies of mail messages that I don't want to store on my local system.

How do I get rid of those local copies? Compacting doesn't seem to do it - there's no "Compact now" button in any case. I don't know what "when it will save over N MB in total" means, exactly. Save compared to what? Now 50% off!

Likewise, if I have Message Synchronizing (Keep messages in all folders etc) turned off, but Disk Space - Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age is still selected, is it going to download copies anyway or no?

If it will download anyway, or if it already did download, if I change the Synchronizing setting to "only the last 30 days" will it remove the older local copies? When?

The only "recover disk space" option deletes both local copies and originals on the remote server.

There really should be a "purge local copies" action available in the client. It may be that it is OK to go out to the OS and remove certain files myself, but maybe it won't be in the future. Every note that is about "Simply open a Terminal window..." describes specific files that don't quite match what I see here in May of 2024 on a Mac. But the tool itself knows what can be removed safely.

A computer is still running Thunderbird 102 happily. That is the plan -- the user is NOT prepared to deal with 115 and later, and the changes therein. Somehow, even though it was supposedly set to only install updates when you told it to, it downloaded and began the process of installing 115. So it's up and running now at 102, but says that when you restart, it will go to 115. Please don't tell me how wonderful 115 is; been there, done that, it's not my machine but it's someone near and dear to me who detests computers in the first place but has to use them so gratuitous changes are utterly unwelcome....

So is there a way to delete something and tell Thunderbird to just keep running 102 and not do the upgrade? If I have to reinstall 102 on top of the old profile, which contains many gigabytes of IMPORTANT mail, I can deal with that. I assume that the profile hasn't been munged yet by the update so I'm asking now. Thanks!

Until the 9th of april I had no problem since then I keep on getting the message: login to server imap.tools.sky.com user namemorgandavid33@sky.com failed

retry or enter new password.

I contacted sky and I did change my password on their advice and I still cannot login. How do I get thunderbird to accept this new password. Or is there another issue with logging in?

The Sky.com email is now provided by Yahoo. I can access my emails there but I prefer Thunderbird and have used it for some time now. Thank you for your help.

Moved to new country (UK) took TB data with me as instructed. Installed TB did put in email data. Uploaded TB data as per instructions. Opened TB and put in email password etc. All my current emails show up no problems and email account appears to work but none of the uploaded data appears even though it took 15 min to upload. It feels like it was uploaded to the 'wrong' place but I uploaded the data it to the TB folder as instructed. Any idea what I did wrong??

How to Transfer TB Data from old Win10 32 bit to new Win11 64 bit computer

My wife got a new computer and I'm transferring her folders from her old windows 10 computer to her new Windows 11 computer. I have Thunderbird installed on the new computer with her account. Thunderbird on the Win10 comp is 32 bit and the Win11 comp is 64 bit. Both are the same version (115.10.02). On the old computer, in the MAIL folder there is "inbound.att.net" which has her mail files (Inbox, Sent, Drafts, etc.). Should I just copy all the files inside the "inbound.att.net" folder to the new computer?

Is there anything else I need to copy and paste from the old TB to the new TB folder? I'm guess that I will have to at lease copy and paste the abook.sqlite file from the old to the new. Any other folders or files.

Maybe I'm doing this wrong and there is an easier way to do this? I've read the article about moving data on the TB Support page but it doesn't mention anything about TB data from a Win10 32 bit to a Win11 64 bit computer. Will the difference in Win10 OS and TB 32 bit and the Win11 OS and TB 64 bit, be an issue.

Thank you so much for the help.

I imported info from Thunderbird on other computer. Now every time I open Thunderbird on the new laptop it says it can't reach my email server, incorrect login. If I enter my password it repeats the failure message. If I just close the message, the popup appears again, closing it again, it repeats once more, then closing it keeps it gone. Once I get the message to stop popping up by the repeat closings of the message, the related email account has already collected new emails so it was working. For what it's worth, the laptops are both Lenovo, the old is running Win10, the new Win11. Before the Import is was working fine, I only wanted to transfer my contacts, but the export grabbed everything. I don't have the issue on the original laptop I exported the info from.

My existing email provider (iiNet) here in Australia is no longer offering an email service. I have been recommended (by iiNet) to transfer to a company called 'The Messaging Company'. Already I have had an issue with the Messaging Company on account of their poor customer service. I note that Thunderbird has a Global Inbox. Does this mean that you are able to offer me an email service that will allow me to keep my current email address?: brucepitt@iinet.net.au If you are able to help, an estimate of the cost for this service would be appreciated.

I'm trying to migrate Thunderbird from my old PC/Windows 10 to my brand-new PC/Windows 10, following the step-by-step instructions on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer. I followed those instructions to the letter (multiple times) but can't get it to work. Are there more recent (and perhaps more complete) instructions to be found elsewhere? Does anyone else have the same?

I have made a copy of my old TB profile folder on a backup stick (it is titled 'Thunderbird', and inside that folder is a folder titled 'Profiles' that contains a number of folders including the most recent profile that I am still using with my old PC. The difficulty is getting this backed up profile info installed on my new 'destination' computer.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
