Yesterday, all of a sudden I can't login to my Thunderbird account at sannies@mailfence.com. Error message shows, "Login to server imap.mailfence.com with username sannies failed." I tried again and got the following error message, "Cannot connect to the server. You may have exceeded the number of connections to the server" I'm not sure I understand that. I have one email account for Mailfence. However, there may be an old profile somewhere on my computer that hasn't been used since I move a year ago. What does "number of connections" to the server mean if it doesn't mean when I'm connected to the server? Nothing has changed about my username and password. I tried the suggestions on the Help site. They did not work. My security shows that Thunderbird is not blocked. Windows Firewall shows that it is not blocked. OP is Windows 10 (updated Jan 2023. Security suite is Avast One (updated Jan 2023). Server is Mailfence. I use the latest version of Thunderbird. BTW - Your "Email me when someone answers the thread" does not work when I check it.

I started a new job last year and I have been using Thunderbird to monitor multiple email accounts. it is a really great product.

I have had to deal with one "feature" for my entire career with this software and that is the behavior of the windows when I reply to a message; each time I go to reply it minimizes each other window.

When this first happened I thought for sure this is toggleable! I must've spent an hour going over each option multiple times before emerging completely defeated. I thought certainly this is a bug right? No way would anyone purposefully set such an inane feature as the only option for one of the most utilized features of Email?? NO! It's working as intended!

I'm going to save the rant on how this is a massive blow to an otherwise overall pleasant user experience and jump straight to my point. I'm not a native Windows user and I don't know how to solve this but certainly someone else does or at least agrees with me that this is stupid and whoever put it in should never be allowed to make choices alone when it comes to this field ever again (you should be ashamed!)

Please help!

I have two INBOXes A & B combined in a Smart INBOX. When composing a new message while in INBOX A, TB uses email A, when in INBOX B, TB uses B. But when composing while in the combined Smart INBOX, where I usually am, TB **always** uses email B, which is unwanted. A is set as default in SMTP, is the first account in the account folder list and the first account in the combined Smart INBOX. I do not find any other possible settings to influence which "From" address he picks when composing messages from a combined Smart INBOX.

... Help ?

In November of 2020, I was forced by ATT to stop using Thunderbird as my email client, for both incoming & outgoing email. ATT changed its security protocols, and that required that I begin (at that time) using ATT's (pathetic) email client.

I have used the very clumsy, very limited ATT / YAHOO email client ever since... and, hated every minute of it.

I had previously used Thunderbird for 10-20 years, literally, and I loved the dynamic functionality which Thunderbird offered.

Since then, I have hated my ATT / YAHOO email experience, and I would like to start using Thunderbird again, if that is possible, considering the ATT security protocols.

Can anyone help me ?

For all its idiosyncrasies, I have come to rely on Thunderbird for my considerable e-mail needs. This involves switching fairly regularly between my Inbox, Outbox and Draft folders since only their titles are/were displayed simultaneously.

Inadvertently, I clicked on something and they have now disappeared obliging me to select Go > Folder > Local Folders before another folder's index can be selected and seen.

PLEASE, how can one rectify this? I'll be very grateful for FOOL-PROOF step-by-step instructions.

Thank you.

I am trying to add an IMAC account to a Thunderbird client that already had a different POP account. Everything is setup but I get a "can not connect to server" message. Putting exactly the same IMAC account on another two systems which already had another IMAC account worked. Is there some restriction on having both POP and IMAC accounts on the same copy of Thunderbird?

I've just got a new Win 11 PC and have followed the method to transfer all the emails in my Local folders to the new PC. TBH I've tried many of the methods without success.

I've tried this many times now with no luck What am I doing wrong please?

Using Thunderbird as my email client, I am noticing that some of my "oldest" emails are disappearing. They still appear on the actual email server (AOL, gmail, whatever...), but in Thunderbird there seems to me a max number allowed (or maybe by storage size)??? I'm guessing it's removing (not necessarily deleting from server) to keep space for new emails.

So, is there a workaround? Is a way to set up individual folders (perhaps by year) so that one individual folder never maxes out yet I can keep all my emails stored offline? It's imporant to have offline access as I don't always have internet at the places I work/travel.

Thanks

When I delete a message, either by clicking delete when the message is open, or by marking several messages and hitting delete, the messages go *poof* and are never moved to trash or anything like that. So if I mistakenly delete a message, im screwed, its gone. Im using gmail, and so there seems to be a trash folder under inbox, and another trash folder under local folders, but both are always empty. The trash folder on gmail has items in it that I have deleted using the browser interface or phone app. How do I configure TBird to move deleted messages to trash, and synch that trash with the trash folder on gmail? I dont mind manually cleaning up trash every few weeks.

Thanks for ability to ask for help.

I accidentally erased some of my email addresses and passwords. Previously I recall being able to access Password Manager to easily enter new email addresses and new passwords. That was some time ago.

I've attempted to follow instructions "within" Thunderbird but on getting into Password Manager where there are now only three of my 4 o5 emails addresses left, I could not find a way to replace the lost addresses and password. It was so easy to do so some years ago. Older users may recall old advice about using multiple addresses where the one attracting scams could be annihilated. I'll be 86 in a fortnight!

Humble thanks in anticipation - I'm still using Windows 7 and think it's the latest or near latest Thunderbird

I'm trying to set up Thunderbird (version 102.6.1, under Windows 10) to work with my Gmail account. I hope someone can help me understand what is happening.

First I enabled IMAP protocol in Gmail. Then I started "Add a new account" in Thunderbird and entered my name, email address, and email password. Thunderbird displayed details of the configuration it set for me, which looked correct: incoming, IMAP with SSL/TLS; outgoing, SMTP with SSL/TLS.

When I clicked Done, Thunderbird opened a browser window in which Gmail prompted me to sign in. The correct email address was prefilled.

I clicked Next and was prompted for the password; I entered the password and clicked Sign In.

Gmail displayed a page that asked whether Thunderbird should be allowed to access my account. I clicked Allow.

The browser window closed, returning me to the Thunderbird configuration screen, which displayed both of these messages:

  • (Yellow background) Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration username or password.
  • (Green background) (checkmark) Checking permission.

So, Thunderbird seems to be saying that Google failed to authenticate me, and simultaneously, that it's in the process of authenticating me (although it never reports that it has finished).

If Google failed to authenticate me, why did it prompt me to allow or deny Thunderbird access?

If Google successfully authenticated me, why does Thunderbird report that it failed?

One possible answer is that I entered my password correctly when Gmail prompted me, but entered it incorrectly in Thunderbird. But I tested that possibility by copying the password from the value I entered in Thunderbird and pasting it into Gmail's password prompt. Gmail said it was correct, so in Thunderbird it must also be correct.
