It's pretty self explanatory. I have three different email address configured within Thunderbird and it does not recognize any of them as "Me". Within each account, they are displayed like anyone else's email.

Been using TB for over a decade and cannot for the life of me figure this out.

Any help is appreciated.

today, i guess, it crashed completely . it started by firing of a warning that not enough space is provided which was not true, then it downloaded 10 messages at once... after a while, the message pane was lost. you click on an email and nothing. it selects it but nothing shows up. blank screen. double click, also opens a new blank tab. fearing a totally corrupt database or even a re-install i pressed repair on the folder. took ages. now, though, i have the profile folder in my PC intact, but TB refuses to load it. i only see the 20 emails i got lately. like starting a new profile all over again...

Email in Folder (per Search) Not Showing on Folder List (using 115.7)

I just moved (drag and drop) an email from my Inbox to a Topical Folder I created a few years ago. When I went to look at the message in that Topical Folder, it wasn't there in the list of emails. I had responded to the email earlier, so I found a copy in my Sent folder. When I dragged and dropped that Sent copy to the topical folder, it was not visible in the Topical Folder email list (but was gone from the Sent folder). In addition to responding to the original email, I had also forwarded it to someone else, so I had that person forward it back to me. When I dragged and dropped that forwarded-forwarded email from my inbox to my Topical Folder, it was not visible in the topical folder (and was gone from my inbox).

Confused as I am? Well, when I search on the Topical Folder, I could see listed all the emails I had moved there! But I can't open them or see them in the folder list, so they might as well be lost.

My question: Is there some sort of filter or something of which I'm not aware that has a default setting that makes some stored emails invisible? I'm starting to get worried that other messages might have vanished from my view!

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Thunderbird 115 included in 24.04 LTS installation.

My profiles are located on the SD card working well on other two laptops running ubuntu 22.04. Swap SD cards between two laptops is my way of working with Thunderbird since 13.04.

After installation 24.04 LTS (and Thunderbird 115 included). Following the instruction for adding old profile to the new Thunderbird. Help->thunderbird information->about:profiles. Creating new profile. 1) Using the function CHOOSE FOLDER indicated the path to the profile /media/VB/AB49-E208/Thunderbird profile 2) The path to the folder shown by Thunderbird is different (and strange): /run/user/1000/doc/58235/Thunderbird

When looking into the directory tree the folder is empty (obviously). Thunderbird therefore cannot reach the profile located on SD card and doesn't work.

QUESTION: Is there any way to overwrite the profile folder path in Thunderbird 115 ?

I have two Google (yes, Google, not gmail) accounts. When setting up my gmail in Thunderbird, I was prompted to enter the Google account. I have entered the wrong one. Consequently, I cannot access my gmail: "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

I have tried all ways I have found in this forum to get rid of it again, such as editing the prefs file, but to no avail.

How can I remove the Google account from the Thunderbird settings to be able to insert the new one?

Thanks for your help in advance, Matt

I've had Thunderbird running for a few years now without any issue. Last week I upgraded from Ubuntu 22.04 to 24.04 and ever since that I've been having problems on Thunderbird sending email.

I can receive mails fine but if I try to send emails from any account I get "Sending of the message failed"

I've for 2 Outlook.com accounts and one gmail.com account and all give issues.

GMail I'm using: smtp.gmail.com Port 465 SSL/TLS OAuth2

Outlook: smtp-mail.outlook.com Port: 587 StartTLS Auth: Normal Password.

These settings have worked fine before the upgrade so think there is something broken my TB.

Hello,

I am trying to sign in to my Yahoo email account in Thunderbird. I enter my email address, and my password (double checking it's correct), then I click Continue, then it finds a POP3 configuration for my email address. Then I click Done, and it stays stuck on "Checking Password", until ultimately it tells me "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username, or password."

Aside from this, I would like to store all my emails on the server (using IMAP?) and not on my computer using POP3. So when I go to configure IMAP manually and try to type in the values on this page ( https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN4075.html ) (although the fields don't exactly match), I type everything in and the "Done" button is greyed out so I can't even continue.

I found one other topic but they got farther than I did and they got to the Yahoo sign in screen which I did not, and they are using OAuth2 which I don't think I am, but I'm not sure.

Does anyone know how I can fix this and set up my Yahoo account with Thunderbird?

Thank you,

Michael Murrin

I recently moved to using Thunderbird for my emails on an iMac running MacOS High Sierra. I am baffled by the number of email erasure/disposal options I was suddenly presented with, namely: 1. A "Trash" folder, with trash bin icon; 2. A "Junk" folder with a flame icon; 3. A "Junk" folder with no icon; 4. A "Junk E-mail" folder with no icon. Confusingly, some of these folders are not provided with an "Empty deleted/junk" option! Can I completely delete folders 3 and 4 (the one without an icon)? And finally, how can I set things up so that the deleted and junk folders are automatically emptied at set intervals?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance!

A few months ago

If I deleted an email or moved it to another folder - on my apple app for any of the accounts that I also have on thunderbird

The changes would sync seamlessly - a few seconds after I deleted or moved an email on my apple iPhone mail app - on my laptop - thunderbird would show the same changes.

The same worked the other way if I deleted or moved an email on thunderbird on my laptop - my iPhone would show the changes in seconds.

However now if I do the same on my iPhone The changes do not show up at all.

BUT if I do the changes on my laptop - they will show on my iPhone. It just doesn’t work if I do the changes on my iPhone.

Is there a reason for this?

Hi, I am on a HP laptop using T-Bird 115.11.0 (32-bit). I am trying to add a new contact to the address book. There is a problem or I am doing something wrong.

The right side of the screen offers me to enter details of the New Contact. However, it only allows room for 1st name, 2nd name and Display Name. Once entered I cannot scroll the screen to enter more details or to save what has been entered or anything - except to close address book or cancel which button only partially appears. By clicking around the white parts of the screen I can get Nickname to appear (see screen dump) and I fill it in and then nothing. I am effectively stuck. Looks like there is some window sizing problem here which is preventing the user from seeing how to proceed with completing this form.

I get a popup every day asking me to update to 115. I refuse to use it anymore after just about pulling my hair out for 3 weeks after 2 115 updates that totally screwed up my Thunderbird mails. Most were completely garbled, or some just disappeared. I followed the solutions in the forums here, but no dice. Since I reverted back to version 102, no problems. I just want to know how to get rid of the popup every day. I am not going to screw op my all in one again. My emails were fine on my phone. But I wasted countless hours trying to fix this mess & then just having to delete them.
