Hi,

I have a fire2wire.com account. I use Thunderbird for all of my email correspondence. About six months ago, I started having to put my password in every time I open Thunderbird, and again when I try to send out an email. Can you tell me how to remove the password requirement?

Gmail with Thunderbird using OAUTH2 - not Connecting nor creating a Cookie

This is my first post. But I have been reading and benefiting from all the expertise I have found here for many years! Thanks to all!

Trying to plan ahead for the Gmail OAUTH2 change, I upgraded to Tbird 91.9.0.

My Account Settings all transferred to the new version. I do have multi Gmail accounts, as well as other email accounts, but from other posts here, this should matter.

While I am a long term Tbird user, I am a newbie with OAUTH2. I can't seem to connect. So I am writing here for help!

My setup: - Dell notebook running W10 - internet connection strong - am using a Netgear Nighthawk Hotspot Router, which works great with

    everything else, so I really doubt that is an issue

- testing without a firewall; running McAfee - resetting Tbird account back to "Normal Password", then Gmail connects

Incoming Server set to IMAP: imap.gmail.com:993 w SSL/TLS and OAuth2 Outgoing: smtp.gmail.com:465 w SSL/TLS and OAuth2

I have been consistently testing with the same gmail account: - YES, I know my password; it works with both the Gmail web interface,

   or after going back to "Normal Password" instead of OAUTH2

- allow any Alert emails via Gmail Web Interface, repeatedly. - Ran Captcha ... many times! In case someone else reading here needs this, it is here: https://accounts.google.com/b/0/DisplayUnlockCaptcha and you must be logged into the Gmail Web Interface when running this. I have learned to take a pause after running this, for it do its thing.

If Toad-Hall is reading this, I found your list of steps here very helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375558 Worth repeating for others who are struggling, like me.

As recommended here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373706 Cookies: all cleared Remembered Passwords: all cleared

Also looked at this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375702 Originally, my cookies WERE blocked. I did need to change my Web Content as recommended in this post:

   Selected: Remember web sites and links I've visited
   Selected: Accept cookies from sites
   Accept third-party cookies: Always
   Keep until : they expire
   Not selected: 'Send web sites 'Do not track'..... 

Also: In Privacy and Security -> Web content -> Exceptions, added: https://accounts.google.com set to 'Allow' and Saved Changes. Then exit Tbird, took a short pause, started Tbird again, per the advice to properly update the files.

Should I be doing BOTH of these? This post shows options: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatic-conversion-google-mail-accounts-oauth20 So if I Select to accept cookies, should I also set the Exception??? I have tested various combinations of these settings, but not seeing a cookie.

In Tbird, when testing to connect, I see:

"Sign in with your Google Account" Enter my account password (I see an error msg here when I typo the password, no error when entered correctly) Also, have checked "Stay Signed In" while trying to Authorize, as recommended. then click Allow on the second screen.

After a few seconds, keep seeing popup in lower right corner of screen: "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com" Sometimes, this msg does not popup, which seems odd to me, but it still fails: Cookies: still empty Password: still empty

I keep updating and reading and updating the setups and testing again, but no cookies for me!


I admit I have gotten off track, testing and reading posts:

Thought my problem might involve Certificates for a while, but now do not think OAUTH2 is using Certificates. Right?

Thought for a bit it might be Javascript disabled, but I am NOT seeing the popup window that shows this error, from this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373379 refers to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1286410 Did find my way to Config editor: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349136 Followed this advice: "Click the 3-bar menu icon, Preferences, and find Config. editor at the bottom of the General section. Or, type editor in the search box at the top of Preferences." Then searched for "Javascript" and found most of settings were true, like javascript.enabled is "true". Should everything that a search for javascript finds be set to true? Since I do not see the error msg, I believe this is not my problem.


Stans posted another helpful summary here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375538 "After you've changed your accounts to OAuth2, delete all records of your Google Account passwords from Thunderbird's password vault (Saved Passwords). With OAuth2, your passwords are not stored by Tbird. Instead, an OAuth2 token (a long string of meaningless characters) is stored in the password field. That's what you should see after completing the OAuth2 process for each of your accounts. You have to do it twice, once for incoming and once for outgoing server. Also, you must allow cookies in Thunderbird's Preferences, otherwise it won't work."

If I am following this correctly, after testing to try and authenticate, I should see a Cookie and a Saved Password being created but they are not.

Think this is my problem!


In Gmail web interface, I am not sure of some settings:

In Manage Your Google Account -> Security:

1. Should Sign-in 2-step verification be on/off? (its off) 2. Third Party apps w access shows Tbird (think this is new, don't recall it before) 3. Allow Less Secure App: turn off (was On for normal pswd; either way fails w OAUTH2) (think I have tested all combinations of the above, with no success) I welcome suggestions on how I should set these to connect with OAUTH2.

I feel like I am getting close here, but I am stuck. Is there anything else, maybe something I have not heard about, like Captcha, that I should try?

Have I missed a setting somewhere? Suggestions???

ThunderBird stopped being able to pick up email from our pop3 server.

The Error console shows:

mailnews.pop3.1: SecurityError: a SecurityCertificate error occurred Pop3Client.jsm:336:18

_onError resource:///modules/Pop3Client.jsm:336

This doesn't give me a hint as to the problem is with the security certificate. It hasn't changed recently and worked yesterday.

The cert is self-signed and expires in a few days. Previously (not recently) I had to do a variety of things to make Thunderbird happy with it.

I get a message: "This POP3 server does not seem to support encrypted passwords ..." My provider use only TLS 1. In the pas I have to set security.tls.version.min to 1. This trick doesn't work with 102.

I also try to set security.tls.version.enable-deprecated to true : no good result.

With security.tls.version.fallback-limit set to 1 : no good result.

Any idea?

Several days ago TB daily started asking for my ATT(Yahoo) password. TB initially rejected my password but I did "forgot password" and added exactly the same password back since it was working on ATT(Yahoo) web mail. Now I get "Sending of password for user xxxxx@bellsouth.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later." TB continues to ask for my password but returns this same message. I looked up the saved passwords on TB settings, but don't recognize any of the passwords. They look like eOauth passwords, but I have never set this up. There are no listings for att inbound or outbound servers. I have searched all the Support articles but cannot find anything that fits this situation. I am thinking something is corrupted on TB and I may have to delete this account and reinstall TB. BUT, I don't want to lose all the emails I have stored on my computer. I copied the Thunderbird file and saved it in another location just in case. 1. Any ideas on how to get running again? 2. Another option might be to delete all the TB saved passwords and put them in again when requested, but will that screw up other stuff? 3. If I have to delete the account and reinstall, how do I make certain all of the emails come back? Thanks Shaw

Hello, I'm afraid TB stopped working after I changed my gmail password. Whenever it tries to connect to the imap server, I get the oauth login prompt, fill out the password, confirm that I want to allow TB to access my gmail account, but after that, I just get the "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com."

I have OAuth2 set as the authentication method, I have cleared the saved passwords, updated TB, manually deleted obsolete files in the profile folder and basically tried every advice I could find, to no avail.

All worked well before the password change (the big end-of-may less secure app business did not affect me).

Currently, I have removed all my gmail accounts from TB and am trying to add them again. One of my gmail account uses 2FA, in this case, I also tried to use the app password. The other gmail account does not use 2FA, so I just used the regular password. In either case, I get the popup asking me to allow TB to access my mails, which I provide, but end up with "Unable to log in at server" message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Last week I changed my Yahoo mail password and updated Apple mail on my devices with no problem. On my iMac, running Monterey OS 12.6.5, I use the latest version of Thunderbird for email. However, it has not accepted the new password, which I enter in the popup window requesting it. (See screenshots) I have tried going into settings/privacy and security and changing it in saved passwords and I've tried deleted saved passwords. I have also entered the secure key. Nothing works. All my mail folders are there. I would really appreciate help on how to get Thunderbird to use my new Yahoo password. Thanks.

Hi,

I need help changing the expiration date of my gpg keys (TB 102.10).

I already extended the date on the command line (gpg --edit-keys), but Thunderbird does not recognize this change.

Maybe it has its own keystore - don't know. I try to change the key from Thunderbird's key manager. Unfortunately it tells, the key has "a complex structure" and cannot be changed. Yes, the key has subkeys. But what can I do now?

Thanks

Checking the servers and domains that are connected by ThunderBird was a horrifying experience:

location.services.mozilla.com


Are you crazy?!? Totally?


I am using Mozilla products for PRIVACY and SECURITY !

I don't want to be collected for telemetry and location! And also for nothing else that is not ESSENTIAL for using the App!

1) Please explain for which reason any and all of the above servers get connected Esp. what is "aus" for and "live"? What does the "settings" host is used for? Why are there 2 "versioncheck" servers?

2) Please FIX this list by removing any and all statistic-collectors like for telemetry and locations! And also by removing other, non-essential hosts!

Thanks!

Received email from Telstra "From 30 January 2024, Telstra will stop allowing any emails to be sent from unauthenticated email addresses. Put simply, emails won’t be sent if your security settings aren’t configured to validate your username and password before the email is sent. From our records you are currently sending unauthenticated emails from........." "What’s next? To continue to send email, you will need to update your security settings for each device that you use to check and send emails https://www.telstra.com.au/support/email/unauthenticated-traffic-limit "

Unfortunetly this link does not give instructions for Thunderbird. Contacted Telstra support and they said to contact Thunderbird support.

Screen shot of current settings attached. Have been getting the following message when sending multiple emails - "Reference: 451-4.5.3. OB315 Unauthenticated traffic limit met."

Can someone help with this. Thanks in advance.

I'm unable to send from gmail in thunderbird. Any help resolving this issue will be much appreciated. I can receive from gmail in thunderbird just fine. I can send from mail.google.com in a browser with no problem. I am unable to set the smtp authentication method to oauth2 in thunderbird. I think this might be part of the problem. Oath2 isn't in the drop-down menu. I'm using POP and am not interested in switching to IMAP. I've attached a screenshot of the smtp settings and the authentication drop-down. I've also attached the Application Basics and Mail and News Accounts sections from the thunderbird troubleshooting info.
