This appears to be an ideal resource for e-mail handling. It’s free, (open source?), private, secure, feature rich, streamlined, and (of course) it’s Mozilla. I would like to utilize this with my website and to eventually roll out the app version to my team. I’m hoping to define rules to automate moving e-mails to specific folders and to automate flagging/painting specific e-mails, notes, tasks, and calendar events. I suppose that it’s always easier to ask for things/stuff, but I hope that all of this makes enough sense to you that you were already working on plans for such a development/project. Perhaps GitHub’s resources could ease the burden. Who knows, perhaps you will add appointment setting and VoIP hosting to your software offerings. (I have been looking for a feasible (freesible), private, and secure way to implement such resources in my website. Also, I sincerely hope that Mozilla will partner with BlackBerry to do more big things.

I utilize Bluehost, Concrete CMS, osTicket, Elkarte, Church CMS, and PrestaShop. I am also playing around with Gibbon and RosarioSIS (and trying to survey) to see what will best suit our tutoring, training, and growing plans for academic development.


Earn ‘n Save (Earn-n-Save.com) is a Points To Ponder website. We are working towards a well-rounded approach to re-establishing our community services. A lot of development is yet underway as the website has been overhauled a few times due to buggy updates that taught the hard lesson about the importance of backups and another lesson about development documentation when a backup did not restore it. As we try to help people to live more charitable, God-honoring, effective, efficient, informed, and resourceful lives from business to society to socializing to recreation to academia to health to procreation to philanthropy, we aim to tell others about Mozilla, BlackBerry, Apple, Linux, Microsoft, GitHub, and so on. We aim to help connect the dots for small businesses to establish, to streamline, to network, to market, and to make our marketplace more of a success than a struggle in ways that don’t require choosing between beliefs and business (i.e., one’s way of life and how one makes a living).

Thanks for my soapbox moment. I hope that my suggestion/request et al brightened your day! Thanks.

My email is on a gmail server. I've been using POP for a long time. My inbox in gmail has 160,000 emails. They go back to 2005. In Thunderbird I have moved emails from inbox to to various local folders. Right now I only have from 1/1/2022 forward in the Thunderbird inbox.

Let me know of any way of migrating to IMAP

Thanks in advance to any replies

I have both Gmail and Aol accounts on my installation, 115.9.0. My aol account is behaving funny. If I choose to display only unread emails, the screen goes blank and no messages show. I then click on sent message, click back on incoming and the messages reappear in the "all" messages display. The Gmail account is just fine, I can click between "All" and "Unread only" with no issues. Can't figure out what's going on.

Since the latest update, Thunderbird Beta won't load all the way on the first try. It will "attempt" to start, but hangs up. It will start if I, at that point, go to the task manager and end the Thunderbird that has loaded in "Background tasks" and then try to start it again. I wish I could say that this happens every time, but it isn't consistent - just "usually."

I recently had to re-install Windows. I saved my Thunderbird profile. I re-installed Thunderbird and when imported my profile, I could retrieve my messages but could not send messages. I attempted to change the settings and wound up creating two additional Pop3 accounts. Now I can't send or retrieve messages. My provider is Charter/Spectrum. I have tried all the settings they suggested. How do I get out of this fix? Thanks.

Uninstalling and reinstalling - WITHOUT losing emails!

Hi, I am a new TB user, and love it so far :) However, I am on Fedora (new to that too) and installed it via the Fedora repository rather than Flathub. You don't need to know that though, the upshot is...

I need to uninstall TB, and then install it again immediately (from another source). I spent WEEKS getting help from a coder who wrote me a python script and all sorts of headaches to get my massive 20 year email archive converted from mac into TB. So I have tons of nested local folders, and all settings set up nicely. I am scared of losing stuff, account details, settings, worst of all local folders and the emails contained in them.

Please can someone advise me how best to go about uninstalling it and reinstalling it while leaving my entire profile, emails, settings, accounts intact. Is that possible? Thanks

Privacy issues of HTML and Images in emails

New TB user here, coming from Mac. I notice my emails look very 'old school' - font wise. I THINK it's because TB is showing plaintext whereas Mac Mail was showing me html, it looks that way anyway. Or maybe it's 'rich text' rather than html. I'm not sure, but it got me wondering, are there any major privacy/security risks of viewing html emails rather than plaintext? I automatically block all images in emails, always have. but looking at Mac Mail it doesn't look like i blocked html as some emails (newsletter type things) show some nice background colours and buttons etc, whereas the same email on TB is just basic font text.

I'd like my emails to look a BIT prettier, in all honesty, but not if that opens major security/privacy risks.

Would be grateful if someone could offer their thoughts on the above please

When I start T'bird in normal mode, I get what you see in picture #1. Notice the custom menu bar at the top. I can still receive emails into the Inbox (but can't see or access them), and I can write an email, access the Address Book, Calendar, etc.

When I then start in Safe mode, with Shift key down, I get what you see in Picture #2. Notice that the custom menu bar at the top is gone. I have to recreate it every time I shut down and restart T'bird. That is unacceptable.

Please advise what I should do to correct this situation. If I can't, then I'm through with Thunderbird (after some 15+ years).

Many thanks, Robert Hawkins

Have two computer with same email. My Wife's computer password got corrupted and unable to get messages. I deleted TB and deleted any reference to Thunderbird in the registry. Turn off and restarted PC, downloaded new install and run and all the setting from before automatically were in place and still could not get pass the password issue. My computer does not have any password.

My wife's PC, under setting, does not have any saved passwords or a Primary password or even the "Use a Primary Password" checked. If it is checked there is nothing there. It just will not get passed the password issue being always asked when trying to "Get Messages".

How do you get rid of all the infor, setting, password requirements and to be able to restart with a clean Thunderbird install or get passed the password issue? Making my brain hurt.

I used the add on "full address column." Today's update silently removed the add on and does not provide any obvious replacement for showing the senders email address in the main email window. Why are you helping spammers to get their way ? This is extremely frustrating and I might have to look for an alternative email client. Seeing the senders email usually makes detecting spam emails a lot easier. The "Correspondents" column is in most cases misleading.

Best Regards.

Hello,

i'm currently trying to set the font 'Aptos' in thunderbird 115.9.0 to the default font for writing e-mails.

I do know that there is an option to configure this under 'settings -> writing -> html-options -> font' but when i try to change this i seem unable to find the font Aptos in this list. I do however have other programs installed on my computer, that already use this font. How can i get and set this specific font in thunderbird?

Kind regards RedPanda

I wrote an email without putting in anyone for the 'TO:' or 'CC:' fields. The BCC: field only had my own email address in it.

I accidentally sent this email before I had sorted out the TO: and CC: fields properly.

In my sent email and it had 'undisclosed-recipients' in the To: field.

I found this disconcerting, since I wasn't SURE if I hadn't put anything in the CC: or TO: fields. I worried I may have sent a rough, poorly worded email to someone and that could backfilre.

Am I right that whenever 'undisclosed-recipients' is shown in the To: field and I sent the email, I can check in that sent email who was in the BCC: field and that should re-assure me who had actually recieved a copy of that email.

Clarity in this area would be VERY helpful.

Regards
