Problem with Thunderbird communicating with aol servers

My email is name@verizon.net. I am trying to switch over from windows live mail. When I set up Thunderbird account it expects the pop3 server to be .verizon.net . However aol took over the management of the servers and switched both the incoming and outgoing servers to pop.aol.com and smtp.aol.com When I go in and manually change the incoming and outgoing servers, I have successfully modified the info. However, when I go into the show password page, it shows my url as mailbox://pop.verizon.net (mailbox://pop.verizon.net) Twice I was able to set the account up and Thunderbird successfully brings in my existing emails from the aol server. However, the next time it checks for mail I receive this message – “Sending of password for user name did not succeed. Mail server pop.aol.com responded: [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later.”

It never succeeds after this.  It looks like Thunderbird is still using the pop.verizon.net address for incoming mail even though it correctly lists in the server settings the pop server as pop.aol.com.

Please help me resolve this problem.

I am trying to install Thunderbird on a new PC. I have Thunderbird installed on another PC. I have two email addresses. Both are POP3. I successfully installed one email address on the new PC. However for the second email address Thunderbird did not provide an option for POP3. I need POP3 to play with my spam blocker.

A friend purchased a new Windows 10 PC yesterday. I installed Thunderbird but he had forgotten the password to his sky email account. Sky helped him set up a new password. When we tried to install Thunderbird it did not recognise his new password during the registration process. We reset the password in Thunderbird on his old PC as per the help info and this worked. However when we went back to the new PC Thunderbird still did not recognise the new password. Both devices were powered off between changes as we were using the old screen on both. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You

Can I keep all folders syncronized (sent, drafts etc.), but store older emails offline only? (inbetween IMAP and POP)

I want to use IMAP so I can keep my trash, sent and draft emails synchronized between all devices But I also want to clear all my emails older than 21 days from the server and all my devices with the exception of one Desktop device, where I want to keep an unlimited local copy of all past emails: received, sent, trash and drafts.

Sounds like what I want is something in the middle between IMAP and POP

Pop can keep local copies while deleting for the server but can't sync send, draft and trash IMAP can sync all folders but can't (or at least doesn't by default) delete from the server while keeping a local copy

I have tried setting up both IMAP and POP, but POP simply can't pull emails which were sent by other devices so I figure I have to use IMAP and somehow configure it so that I can clear emails form the server while keeping an offline copy.

Can Thunderbird be configured to use IMAP but also for example copy each email from each folder to a local folder where it will not be deleted? If that can not be done, how can I officially request such feature to be added to Thunderbird?


Just for context: The reason I want to set it up this way is because I want to synchronize my emails to the email client on my phone, but I regard my phone as somewhat insecure: I could lose it or it could get stolen. I want to sync my emails to it, but not keep them longer than 21 days. I also want to consider the server as somewhat insecure, as I know that in some circumstances someone could reset the password of my mailbox by fooling the provider (or it could be subpoenaed) The email client on my desktop is secure, it is installed within an encrypted environment.

I quote from a previous correspondence to illustrate my problem: Question: Quote There are no mab files on the new PC's profile. How do I get my old address book on the new PC? Unquote Answer: Quote Copy the mab files into the profile folder of the new computer, and rename the 2 sqlite files, with TB closed. On restart, TB should convert the mab files to sqlite files, and create abook.mab.bak and history.mab.bak. Unquote

I get what needs to be done, but since I am not privy to the preceding communication, it could be the reason, I do not fully understand what is meant which files the quote renaming the 2 sqlite files unquote refer to, as pasting the abook.mab and History.mab and changing their file extension to sqlite failed to bring the desired result. Likewise, attempts to change the file extensions on abook.sqlite and history.sqlite brings no joy.

My version of Thunderbird is 91.3.2. I use win10 pro.

Can anyone bring some clarity? Thank you in anticipation

I have no decent words for the people who have allowed a reduction of items (e.g. a maximum of two emails) in the local Address Book. But it's happened and there's nothing I can do about it. My goal is to preserve as much information as possible without having to manually check every contact (about 1500) Current situation: - Thunderbird 91.2.1 Address Book - continuously updated, but with loss of some contact fields - Google Contact containing all fields (luckily gContactSync probably stopped working) but out of date (missing some new contacts and changes to existing ones) Target: - Thunderbird with CardBook add-on (vCard 4.0) - Nextloud for sharing contacts across my all devices (Linux including mobile) Any idea how to achieve this and not do unnecessary work?

Hi I am trying to sign up to Thunderbird so I can transfer my emails to it. I have followed the steps to download thunderbird onto my Mac0S however when I try to go through the steps to 'set up existing email address' it tells me 'Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account'. I have contacted my current email provider and the person supporting me followed the Thunderbird steps on their computer (Mac) and after they had filled in their name, email address and password it came up saying 'available configurations and gave the IMAP info, they then proceeded to click done and their emails transffered over. My question is why am I not getting the 'available configurations IMAP' come up? I have deleted and reloaded the app several times, the other person has proven the email server can be recognised by thunderbird so I am now at a loss for what to do. Any thoughts would be greatly received, I have been struggling with this for over a week now!! Many thanks Emma

Hello,

I am trying to transfer e-mails from Windows Vista to Thunderbird.  I attempted to down load "ImportExport" as advised by T/Bird support.  I was required me to download or associate it with an app to do this.

I have clicked on one which was not appropriate (Perfect Expert) and now can't change it in Windows settings unless I choose one from Microsoft Store to do this. Is this the correct way to do it and if so which is an appropriate app?

Thanks,

Geoff

I switched from version 68.12.1 to 91.3.2 which allows me to access Outlook mail and most of my Local Folder mailboxes did not appear in the left folder pane of the new version. I checked C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\kb7yustq.default and all mailboxes and messages are there. To see them again I deleted panacea.dat and global-messages-db.sqlite as suggested by https://www.emailadepts.com/blog/how-to-recover-lost-folder-in-mozilla-thunderbird.htm but the problem persisted. I switched back to the old version (68.12.1) and all mailboxes appeared again. I have also transferred one of the “invisible” subfolders/files into one of the few folders that are “visible” in 91.3.2 (some of the few that were “visible” after updating) but this did not help in seeing their contents in the new version. The problem seems to be specific to version 91.3.2. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide on how to correct this problem

So the latest Windows update crashed my computer and all I'm left with is a reinstall of Windows. Before i do this, I have command line access to c:\ I navigated to c:\users\username\appdata\roaming\profiles and found directory "random".default user I performed and xcopy /e to a usb stick for this folder The result was a set of folders and within this folder was a directory "random".default user.

My problem is that when I create a new profile in t/b and point to the usb location drive:\"random".default user t/b will load, however, the most recent email showing in the inbox is 10 months ago. If I point to the root of the usb stick which contains the other files as well, then t/b cannot find my profile.

How I do find the current email that was in my inbox?

Hi, I tried to backup my thunderbird app to an external hard drive, but after I did that and opened my thunderbird email app all of my emails were gone. It's as if I deleted everything and have to start over with Thunderbird all over, it's asking for me to set up emails. I haven't deleted anything but I want thunderbird back the way it was with all my emails before I did this.

I have a Mac Book Air, running OS X Yosemite, version 10.10.5

Exactly what I did: I clicked on copy thunderbird in the drop down. It made a copy and I saved it to my external hard drive. Then I went back to open Thunderbird, everything is gone.

Did I delete everything? Can I restore this?

Thank You!

Good morning:

I am trying to set up an email account and I'm getting some strange behavior out of Thunderbird.

I click add, type my name, email address and password like normal and hit "continue". It says "configuration found", fills in all the IMAP info like it's supposed to, sweet. So I click "Done".

This opens the browser with a Google page, which makes sense. It's not an @gmail.com address but it's managed through Google's...whatever they call it...Workspaces or something? I don't know...it's managed by Google so this window is expected.

The email address is filled in, I hit "Next" and...it's asking me for my "email or phone"...so I enter it again and hit "Next"...

Rinse and repeat.

Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong here? The Google page in the browser window never asks me for my password...every time I hit next, the page just reloads asking me for my "email or phone" again. No error messages, no nothing.

Ideas?

Thanks!

I just got my first smart phone Samsung (Android). I learned I could not use Thunderbird on that device. I have been using GMail as my client, but running Thunderbird on my PC to handle the duties on my computer, importing messages from GMail.

So, now with the Android phone, I decided to use GMail on the phone.

Two issues with which I need help.

I'd like to import my contacts/ address book from Thunderbird (which I will continue to use on my PC) to GMail on my phone. How do I do this? I cannot find the address book files on my PC.

I'd like to set up my Thunderbird to import copies of messages from GMail.com, but leave them there on GMail so that I can deal with them on my phone, as well. I've tried to accomplish this with settings in Thunderbird, but so far have not achieved the desired result. When the messages appear on my PC in Thunderbird, they seem to longer be on the GMail account.

Thanks for reading and for any suggestions.
