How to reset grouped inbox sort settings through config editor

When displaying grouped inbox I changed the View -> Sort By setting to "Grouped" from "Unthreaded" (I'm translating these names from Polish so might not 100% match). After that change Thunderbird freezes when starting it. I can run it in safe mode but as soon as I click on grouped inbox folder it freezes again.

Is there a way to reset View -> Sort By settings for this folder somehow without displaying it? E.g., from config editor?

I tried setting mailnews.default_news_view_flags and mailnews.default_view_flags to 0 but that didn't help.

I am unable to send any emails with attachments or embedded images via my gmail account. Error message:

Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.gmail.com timed out. Try again.

I am able to send simple text emails without any issues

I tried the suggestions listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344851. Nothing helped. I can send simple text emails so I know my smtp settings are correct. I also have no issues downloading emails from the account.

Help!

Moved from old Thunderbird 91.11.0(64bit) on Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon to a newer computer using Thunderbird (same) on Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon. Prior "move to" feature no longer works. Have three POP email accounts and twenty mailboxes under Local Folders for those emails arriving in my Inbox(es) that I want to save.

Prior could drag-n-drop messages from one folder to another AND also use the right-click menu "move to" to repeat or select a new mailbox to transfer emails into.

Now the actions both of drag-n-drop and "move to" menu appear to function; BUT, there is NO ACTION accomplished. The email remains in the original mailbox and there is no change in the target mailbox. So move message "Hi there" from main Inbox to "Family" mailbox yields NO "Hi there" message in "Family" mailbox as it is still sitting in the main Inbox. All other functions of Thunderbird email processing so far have been functioning just fine.

I also tried the mailbox repair of the source and target mailboxes with no change. I do not use IMAF at all since I POP fetch the emails and delete them off the email service servers. I have scoured the user settings to try and find if there was some setting somewhere in vain. I have also looked into AddOns in case there was a solution there. I keep my saved emails organized by a set of mailboxes; but, have lost that critical ability in the new installation.

I am scripting the creation of e-mails using the command line

-compose ...

and now trying to incorporate embedding certain images. I created a routine to encode the images in base64 and build the proper HTML img tag to include in the 'body' argument.

It works flawlessly for png and jpg images, but bombs for bmp, tiff, gif, ... and am trying to understand why. Is this a limitation of the command line? Is there something I've missed in the documentation somewhere?

I've validated with online source that the output HTML is accurate. I've even saved the output as an HTML file and it renders just fine in any web browser, it is just the 'thunderbird -compose -body ...' that can't seem to handle it.

I am running the latest version of Thunderbird (installed a fresh copy today).

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear it.

Thank you.

Thunderbird version 102.3.1 (32-bit), Windows 10 (up to date). 4 core 64-bit system, 16GB of memory.

Intermittently, Thunderbird (TB) will start consuming an entire core of my 4 core system, or 25% of cpu time. While this is happening, the throbber (the spinner on the mail toolbar between the "tag" and "add a task" icons) spins continuously. While this happening, the system is sluggish.

I've seen other reports where the suggestions are:

- compact all folder (done)
- remove all the .msf files in the profile (done)

It has gotten to the point where I don't only run TB once or twice a day to download mail and check the calendar.

Any other suggestions or tips, or any other information that I can supply to help resolve this issue?

Thank!

Hello,

i'm using Thunderbird for almost 16 years (and therefore i have a huge email database wich in definitely dont want to loose). Now i have a unfortunately problem: Facts: - PC with sufficient RAM, Windows 10 with all updates - latest version of Thunderbird (102.3.0) - different Emailaccounts (gmx, gmail) - no Antivirus software, only buid-in Windows firewall

Thundebird (wich i really appreciate) updated to 102.3.0 (while i was opening the browser manually). So i and Thunderbird opened the browser at the same time. No clue whether this is the reason for:

Thunderbird now crashes every time when i open it. It does nothing but as soon i click into the thunderbird window it says "thunderbird doesn't react" (wich is true, i waitet one night ;-(

I tried to: - copy back different backups of the profile-folder (one week old, another approx one month old) wich were backuped BEFORE the automated update to 102.3 - uninstall and reinstall current version von thunderbird - install some older versions of Thunderbird (they were always claiming, that the profile-files were modified by an newer version of thunderbird and they can't read them) - tried the current stand-alone version - created new profiels with the above described versions of Thunderbird and then copying the backup profile files into that - manually reduce the inbox-file in size (removing the mails of approx. the last 2 weeks) - removing all *.msf-Files bevore starting Thunderbird - removing the global-messages-db.sqlite bevore starting Thunderbird

Everything with no effort. Thunderbird frezes everytime.

I will spend 100 € (!!!) for a hint wich makes my Thunderbird working again, no joke!!!

Regards

Stephan

To avoid having to hit 'Ctrl+' to increase the font size for incoming emails I found this:

... and thanks for that, but it increases the size of *everything* not just the incoming mail. To get my emails displaying a bigger font using the above technique, now 3/4 of my screen is the newly expanded 'Folders' and menu bar and list of pending emails. How to just automatically 'Ctrl+' the incoming mail font? I want *only* the email contents to be bigger. We already have two accessible font control buttons but nothing for this. How can something so basic be overlooked?

In the last week, I've had a couple of emails being resent to their original recipients again, without my knowledge and without my setting up a future send time/date. My email client (runbox.com) doesn't offer delayed send options, so I believe the problem is coming from Thunderbird. Is there a way to check, and a way to stop it? One of the re-sent emails was resent 6 weeks after it was originally sent, and the subject has long been resolved and finished; it was embarrassing to have the recipient think I was raising the issue again.

I only know about 2 emails being resent (one twice, one once) which is itself odd, as they were originally sent to different addresses and on different dates.

I have tried checking everything, but I am at a loss to understand why it changed in the first place from the day before. Can anyone please help me??

Hi all

Since yesterday Thunderbird is unable to connect to the server and download new emails.

I got the following error message: "Non-overridable TLS error occurred. Handshake error or probably the TLS version or certificate used by the server mail.blacknight.com is incompatible."

I am running Thunderbird v102.2.2 for 4 days now but yesterday was the first time this error has appeared.

security.tls.version.min is set to 1. In fact, it has been set to 1 for more than a year now.

The host tells me everything is fine with the cert used by their server.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi!

I am having a problem getting my email using:

   Thunderbird version 102.0.3

I started having problems suddenly while using

   Thunderbird version 102.0.2

What I mean is that Monday evening I logged on and the email worked well. During the night I suddenly started getting the error message of:

  The server does not support the selected authentication
  method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the
  'Account Settings | Server settings'.

when I checked my mail.

I know that I am doing something basically wrong but I cannot see what that is. I looked on the web and the settings below should work for "aol.com" under Thunderbird.

Thunderbird settings

  Server name: pop.aol.com
  Port: 995
  Connection security: SSL/TLS
  Authentication method: OAuth2

I updated Thunderbird from 102.0.2 to 102.0.3 and the problem persisted.

Any help would be appreciated.

I prefer to use S/MIME to digitally sign my email messages. Prior to Thunderbird 102.3.1, using S/MIME to digitally sign my messages was the default.

Now, for every single email I send, when I click "Send" I get the dialog box "OpenPGP Alert - Cannot digitally sign this message, because you haven’t yet configured end-to-end encryption for <email address>". I have to then select "S/MIME" from the encryption/signature menu.

It's a pain to have to remember to do this for every email I send.

I checked my account settings. "Do not use OpenPGP for this identity" is checked. The correct S/MIME certificate is selected.

How do I set the default signature method to be S/MIME instead of OpenPGP in this new version of Thunderbird?

I'm running Thunderbird 102.3.1 on Mac OS 10.14 Mojave. The Enigmail plugin is disabled. I have an OpenPGP key that I created 20 years ago on my system, and Thunderbird recognizes its presence, but I do not use it.
