I frequently get this error message preventing me getting mail or saying it can't keep a copy of a sent email. The problem doesn't persist but seems to cure itself. It appeared to begin in late autumn 2021.

I am using Thunderbird 91.5.0 with Windows 10 21H2

I have tried reducing my Maximum number of server connections to cache from 5 to 3

I do not have any other computers or a smartphone

My broadband connection is branded "John Lewis" and supported by Plusnet

I would like to run AUTOMATICALLY message filters on messages in my "bulk mail" mailbox. I can run those filters manually by selecting the "bulk mail" mailbox (just underneath the Message Filter box) and pressing "Run Now", BUT as soon as I close the box, the mailbox selected goes back to the Inbox (presumably the default). Is there any way I can force, trick, bribe or persuade Thunderbird to leave the Bulk Mail box as the selected mailbox -- so that the Message Filters will run on it and not my Inbox??? Any tips will be greatly appreciated!)

I have a Mac and use Thunderbird for email. I am getting an error message as follows: Error - ... on Local Folders There is not enough disk space to download new messages. Try deleting old mail, emptying the Trash folder am comparing your mail folders and then try again.

This occurs only for a select group of folders. The info that was in the folders appears to be gone. I have deleted old mail, cleaned up the trash, etc.

It is odd because the majority of my folders don't appear to be affected. Any suggestions???

I have a large archive of old messages from various accounts. They take up unnecessarily large space because they have many html formats. I am not interested in their old backgrounds or fonts, or smileyfaces etc - it would be enough for me to keep only their textual content. Is there any extension that converts multiple messages to plain text by removing html formatting?

I will add just in case that I am not interested in simply displaying the message as text, or exporting a single message to a text file. I want to convert messages to plain text in my archive mail folder box while reducing their size.

Thanks in advance for all the tips.

Hi all, I've used Thunderbird for years on my old computer. I had POPFILE setup to filter my messages before they went to Thunderbird. I recently (Christmas) got parts from my children to build a much newer, faster and quieter system. My only problem is with my e-mail. I copied my whole "Thunderbird" folder to an external hard drive from old computer and then had to transfer the folder to new computer. The "Thunderbird" folder contains the folders "Crash Reports", "Pending Pings" and "Profiles" along with 2 files called "installs" and "profiles". When I downloaded and installed Thunderbird on my new system, it connected to my e-mail (xxx.mindspring.com) and downloaded a bunch of messages. The new messages are in a different profile then all of my old messages from my old computer. Is there a way to: 1) get the old left hand structure of my Thunderbird that contained all of my old messages back onto the new computer? 2) Is there a way to merge the newer messages into the older list of messages? 3) I have not setup popfile in so long that I don't remember how to do it and it looks like all of the documentation is gone from the web. I don't think I really need it any longer as I can just set filters up in Thunderbird but it was nice to use.

I only have 1 video card (an old 9600GT) that I have to swap between old and new computer to get the old file structure back. Even an low quality video card is so expensive these days! Anyway, I am reading my emails online (which I don't like to do!). I would like to get Thunderbird back to how I was using it before. Thanks! Greg

I followed instructions posted on a TB fourm on how to generate an app password in order for my TB to work with AOL. I'm receiving mail in Thunderbird but can't send. I suspect that I may not have followed the instructions completely and would like to start over. Do I need to delete the AOL generated password on AOL and create a new one or just create a new one for the outgoing server? Would appreciate any help! JD

Just copied the contents of our old Win7 laptop Thunderbird profile to a new Win10 TB profile. The new Win10 already had TB installed and had 2 accounts. 1 pop account (AOL same email address acct copied form the Win7 TB early last year when the new W10 purchased) and 1 Comcast imap account with a new email address never used on the old Win7 laptop. When I copied the Win7 profile contents I knew it would replace the pop account (only used to receive email with links, etc) with the up to date Win7 messages and local folders which is what I wanted to do. What I did not expect is that the imap account would not be there. The one local folder that was created on the Win10 TB was also missing but I simply copy the 2 files with the folder name from the Win10 backup and now that folder is there along with the local folders transferred from Win7 TB. I tried copying the Imap folder which was just under the profile folder from the Win10 backup and the account is still not on the Win10 current TB. Is there another file that the transfer overwrote that I must find in the backup?

I cannot be too precise when this started happening but at some point in the past two months, I have found that Thunderbird repeatedly notifies me about the same unread emails. I think it's probably since upgrading to 91.

I am accessing my inboxes with IMAP and they have multiple subfolders. The subfolders may contain 1 or more unread emails. I do not want or need more than one notification about any given unread email. I am quite sure that Thunderbird 78 did not do this, as it is noticeably irritating.

I am experiencing this with Thunderbird on Debian accessing my personal email and Thunderbird on Ubuntu accessing my work email.

when i try and authorise my google login to access my google calendar, i get the following error message:


Authorisation Error Error 403: rate_limit_exceeded

This app has reached its sign-in rate limit for now.

Google limits how quickly an app can get new users. You can try signing in again later or ask the developer (provider-for-google-calendar@googlegroups.com) to increase this app's sign-in rate limit.

If you are the developer for this app, you can request a sign-in rate limit increase.


im using thunderbird 91.5.0 (32-bit) with the provider for google calendar add-on (v 91.0.3) which appears to have been updated yesterday... (maybe a its a bugged update???)

anyone know how to fix this issue?

Hey all -

We're running Thunderbird on a terminal server, and I was wondering if there was either a registry value or a key:value entry for the policies.json management option that would allow me to set all instances of Thunderbird, globally, for all users, to download headers only and otherwise use the server (which is on the same network as our terminal server) to pass the message content?

This would be super useful for us as we'd prefer to keep messages stored on our email server, rather than downloading more copies onto our virtual terminal server, and duplicating the use of our limited space.

Is there any way to do this, so that all Thunderbird instances would be forced to operate in "headers only" mode?
