Hello,

I just copied my whole profile folder from a Debian 12 (Thundebird 115.7) to a Ubuntu 22.04 (Thunderbird 115.8). I expected when running it, to find it in the exact same state because, as what I'm aware of, everything is stored in the profile and nowhere else on the filesystem.

But, I found that: - my favorite folders (around 10) weren't there (well, only 1 of them) - A lot of mails were in "unseen" state (not the unread/read marker, but that star that appears the first time you open a folder for mails that has just been downloaded), where they were already seen

So my concern is about where/how are those values supposed to be stored, and why they don't seem to "migrate" as well? And, may there be some other things that didn't come too?

On my fastmail email account I used to be able to see all custom and standard IMAP folders (drafts, trash, spam, archive, etc) listed under the account, but now they do not appear any more, all I can see is Inbox. I have tried deleting and adding the account but still none of these folders show up. Any solution for this?

Would like to have message filters act on multiple inboxes. Or an easy method to copy a filter from one account to another. I have found the location of the msgFilterRules.dat files and can open them with a text editor and copy and paste lines from one to another. This is adequate, but a little cumbersome to find the the .dat files. (Yes there are ways to save the path, or using Open...recent in the text editor) I tried to build a filter on the Unified Folder Inbox but this didn't seem to work - and I'm not sure where the .dat for the Unified view is stored or if it exists.

I am running 4 email addresses (3 hotmail.com and 1 live.com) on TB 102.15.1 (64 bit) - Windows 10. About a month ago I upgraded TB was unable to send anything no matter what Server settings I used - tried every combination - so I downgraded back to Version 102 and everything went back to normal. About a week ago, one of my hotmail accounts started giving me a "fail to log in" message. The other accounts work fine. The "fail to log in" will go from 2 or 3 times to 15 to 20 times in about an hour or so but every time, sooner or later will work and then it will be fine for a few hours and then start again. I have had these accounts running on TB for well over 10 years with no problem and I have not changed anything in the Server settings or anywhere else. The account I am having the issue with has been running on TB since TB started with no problems until now. I assume that TB may be having some issues with the Outlook platform but I have not changed anything there either and I have no problem logging into hotmail.com directly. I have spent many hours combing the internet for hints to no avail - everything I have tried has either had no effect or screwed things up so I had to back track to where I started. Any ideas???

Thunderbird is often asking again to log into Gmail and Outlook accounts.

A few days ago the accounts I have were "disconnected" and a few days later, randomly some accounts ask me again to log in and allow access to email.

I have about 20 emails managed with Thunderbird and after a few versions (about 3-4 months) this problem started to happen.

Has anyone else reported something similar?

An observation is that I use MozBackup to make complete backups of emails (including login and password) and restore them after formatting the computer.

I have many folders for 2 POP accounts. This morning everything looked ok. I quit Thunderbird after it had been running unclosed for a week. Came back home, opened Thunderbird, and there are no messages in any folders. My folder pane looks good. I can email from one POP account to another, Get Messages, and see that I have a new message in the other Inbox because the InBox icon changes. But click on that folder or any folder and there are no messages displayed. I looked in all the directories and the box files are all there and the correct size. Go to the bottom of that Inbox file and there is the new test message I just did. One other thing Thunderbird version 115.8.0, MacOS 11.7.10, and there is a SuperNova symbol that I do not remember seeing before. Thanks

Our Thunderbird is set up with 2 email accounts - Gmail & Cox cable. Actually 3 as my wife also uses TB for her Cox emails. Cox is moving over to Yahoo. Not a fan of Yahoo. Eventually I will either set up another Gmail account (cox was for subscriptions or when a business needs an email address) and my has a Gmail already, but she does not use TB for that as for her Cox is her main email.

So can I delete our Cox emails thru Cox web email site without losing our emails currently in TB? And will that mess things up as TB sends and receives email from cox cable?

Any tips and suggestions much appreciated.

Hi all, I am a lifelong fan of Firefox but for some reason got hooked into Mac Mail many years ago and just kinda stuck there. I have often wanted to switch to Thunderbird but due to such huge amounts of email and local folders, I never felt brave enough!

Having now finally had my fill of Apple, I am moving all my computing over to Linux (Fedora). This is scary but so far so good, please note I am not a CLI wizard! :)

I have 20 years (or more) of email nicely organised in folders in Mac Mail on OSX 10.14.6 (mojave). Yes I know it's out of date now, hence the move rather than suffer one more Mac update :)

Nearly all my email is in folders "On My Mac", I like to keep all mail locally. Having been that way for 20 years and having run several businesses, websites, and a lot of personal groups and stuff, you can imagine the volume of email I have. I can't afford to get this wrong so I was hoping for some kind person to walk me through the choices of ways to do it, or refer me to a guide if there is one (I couldn't find one yet).

I fear I may be complicating matters but not only converting from Mac Mail to Thunderbird, but converting OS's as well. maybe I should break it down into two stages?

Any advice very much appreciated.

thanks

I had to change my PW for my Apple email account. When I open Thunderbird v115.8.0 it prompts me to enter the new PW. I do so and Thunderbird just goes into a loop — Wrong PW, Enter New PW, Wrong PW, Enter New PW, etc.

Then I remove the email account from Thunderbird and attempt to add it new. I fill out "Setup Your Existing Email Address". Thunderbird then gives me the green dialog, "Configuration found in Mozilla ISP database". I click "Done" and then, "Unable to login at server. Prob wrong config, username, pw".

The username and pw are correct. I can add the account just fine on Apple's email client.

It seems to me Thunderbird is still "remembering" the old PW and trying to login with it. I did go to Preferences:Passwords to make sure the account and its PW wasn't listed there.

A few months ago I noted the exact same behavior with an Outlook account. I finally gave up on trying to use Thunderbird to access that account and am using the Apple email client for it.

I much prefer Thunderbird and send my little donation every year, so I hope there is a solution other than completely uninstalling Thunderbird and reinstalling.

Any thoughts?

Thanks so much.

I have a bunch of content in my Local Folders: Junk mailbox but none of it is showing up in Thunderbird. The Properties for the folder shows "Number of messages: 0", "Size on disk: 3.4 MB". I've tried the "Repair Folder" button but it makes no difference. The folder views as empty in Thunderbird.

Not sure when this started happening because I don't recall having this problem in the past. The folder permissions are the same as all the other mailboxes:

ls -l Junk* -rwx------@ 1 uid staff 3578520 23 Feb 08:51 Junk* -rw-r--r--@ 1 uid staff 3289 24 Feb 12:39 Junk.msf

Lately I have been getting a lot of spam and have identified all coming into my inbox as spam. Now many are automatically moved to junk mail box and that is a good thing. Unfortunately it also seems to be slowing Thunderbird down. I am afraid that many of the "Filters" generated may be duplicated. Is it possible to see them and maybe edit them to reduce the impact on my system?
