I use Tbird version 102.3.0 on a W10 laptop

I have had to reset my Google passwords, on two accounts, and am now having trouble with these accounts on Thunderbird. Both accounts receive emails, but will not send. I have deleted the accounts and reinstalled them successfully, both have 2 factor authorisation, and the Tbird settings say that they do too. Any ideas please? I have seen that others have had similar issues, but there doesn't appear to be a simple solution.

When trying to send, I first get this (image grab 1); when I cancel I get image grab 2:

Thanks. Simon

I have installed Thunderbird on a new computer and can't remember the password. Thunderbird works well on my main computer. How do I either: Setup a new password or Recover the old password (I never saved it) I wrote down the (old) password but either I made a mistake or something else, but that one doesn't work. Version 91.11.0 btw my gmail account no longer works because of a restriction by Google. (Google doesn't like Thunderbird I am told)

Hello,

as Microsoft 365 will soon disable basic auth, we have switched to OAuth2 but unfortunately, Thunderbird randomly displays an Authentication error and at this point we won't receive any new messages.

Every time I start Thunderbird, emails are fetched correctly, but then after some time the error appears and at this point, Thunderbird doesn't even try it again. I can't even find an option to try again and have to restart Thunderbird at which point everything works again.

This is really problematic for us as it can take a while until we notice the issue and until then we may miss an important email.

We are using shared inboxes which means that we are accessing a mailbox like sharedinbox@business.de using tenant@business.de and the tenants MFA.

Why does OAuth2 work this unreliable?

How can we get Thunderbird to just try again automatically?

Thunderbird 102.1.2 (64 bit)

Best Regards

Hi

I've been using thunderbird since it's inception, but with the new versions, I'm unable to send mails from my professional adress.

The needed settings are as follows:

  • SMTP server: smtps.***.fr
  • Port 465
  • SSL/TLS (accept all certificates)
  • impose identification

I cannot set the last two items in thuberbird hence I can't send emails. (Works fine with these settings on my smartphone)

Can I modify this using the advanced settings?

Thanks for your help

I received an email from my email people at mail.com saying thunderbird will soon be unable to receive emails, here is the gist of the email. I'd appreciate some advice on what to do, I have looked in the settings and am unsure what to do.

We are contacting you because one or more of your devices or programs uses the TLS 1.0 and/or TLS 1.1 encryption protocols to connect to our mail.com email servers, or is using an unencrypted connection. This involves either access via SMTP (sending emails) or retrieval via POP3/IMAP (receiving emails).

Unfortunately, the TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 encryption protocols are outdated and no longer meet current security standards. To protect your email communications, soon we will no longer allow access to our mail.com servers with these outdated protocols. Unencrypted access will also no longer be possible.

What does this mean for you?

After the protocols have been deactivated, the transfer of emails between your affected device or program and our mail.com servers will no longer work; i.e. no emails will be transmitted to or from your mail.com email account using TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1. Furthermore, unencrypted SMTP/IMAP/POP3 connections will no longer function. In other words, as of Oct. 5, 2022, it will only be possible to connect if TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.3 encryption is in place.

The following devices or programs may be affected:

  • Third-party email programs such as Outlook, Thunderbird or pre-installed apps in which you have set up your mail.com email account.

I am a Verizon (AOL Mail) user. AOL requires authentication using OAuth2. I set this up months ago using an application (AOL) generated password and it's been working fine. This morning after an upgrade to 102.2.1, it no longer works and I'm getting the message:

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

I searched prior issues with this problem under Mozilla support. As a result, I tried generating a new application password. I input the new password to Thunderbird and it worked ONCE. Now I am receiving the same error message again from Thunderbird.

Being able to upgrade a software release and receive at least the same functionality as in the prior release is a basic tenet in the software industry. And many AOL users will be impacted.

Suggestions for a remedy? Or is this a bug that Mozilla needs to get a hotfix out for?

Many thanks.

Comcast/xfinity started forcing MFA authentication here. Thunderbird is now disconnected. How to I reconfigure to accommodate MFA? I poked around FAQs and such and found references to 0auth2 authentication method but that option doesnt appear as an option in my settings. Only normal password, encrypted password, kerberos/gss api, ntlm, and tls certificate.

How do I fix this? I am on 102.2.2.

Regarding having correct settings for smtp server...After working fine for a couple of years, in May my Thunderbird email client starting getting an error when trying to send email, requiring having to wait and retry multiple times to get the email to send without getting the timeout error. I spent a lot of time in May to resolve without success, then a lot more time this month. I have tried several different settings for "Authentication method" and "Connection Security" The smtp settings specified by my email provider, WOW, either don't match the Thunderbird options, or result in error. A different set of settings I tried seem to work, as well as a variation of what a WOW rep emailed to me in May. However I wonder if either of these settings cause any security issues to be concerned about--that is my main question now, since sending email seems to be working fine again.

1) The other week I set smtp server settings to Authentication method: Normal password Connection Security: STARTTLS That has been working fine for a couple weeks without error. However since WOW says they don't support STARTTLS is that a problem to specify those settings?

2) What one WOW rep specified in May on a screen shot with a handwritten note: Authentication method: Normal password Connection Security: None However when I specify "Connection Security: None" the only option allowed for Authentication method is: "Password, transmitted insecurely." Email seems to work without error with those settings. However is "Password, transmitted insecurely" a problem? Or is that OK? (Transmitted Insecurely doesn't sound reassuring!)

In multiple calls and hours of time with my email provider, WOW, they say they don't have any information about what the settings should be for Thunderbird, and despite their efforts have not been very helpful. Attached is some information they have provided on different occasions, or from the web site. Screen shot -- Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings Standard POP3 Server information Email Server Settings

I have multiple computers running thunderbird and receive email from the same accounts. After recently adding a new machine I've noticed that many emails are being sent to junk that seem to have been trained out of the other machines. It is often not convenient to go to the new machine to set "not junk" on a particular email. Is there any tool for synchronizing adaptive filters across multiple computers?

Hi there, for some reason I can’t enable editing now on word attachments, stuck in protected view. I’ve tried disabling the trust centre settings in word, uninstalled the latest updates to no avail. If I create a new profile in windows 11 and setup new mail account in thunderbird it works. I can’t see any settings in thunderbird to disable, I have tried various settings under security but nothing works. I’m using recently upgraded “latest” version of thunderbird??

I recently received an email from Rackspace... "We would like to inform you of increased security measures that may require your action. We are removing insecure (Standard) access for IMAP, POP, and SMTP."

They go on to list secure settings for Secure IMAP, Secure POP, and Secure SMTP. Those are not a problem.

But they also say "Be sure to select options for secure TLS." The only T-Bird option I see under "Connection security" is "SSL/TLS."

Maybe this is a question for Rackspace but their support has really gone downhill since they went public and I've gotten bad info from them in the recent past. Does anyone know if the T-Bird setting is adequate?

It seems multiple users have inquired regarding display of the sender email address, not the spoofed display name. It looks like the 'From' and 'Correspondents' fields are identical. The replay to user inquiries is often just a link to an addon which purportedly will add such a column. Why does Thunderbird offer only information that is so commonly manipulated by phishing attacks, and fail to provide such basic header information as sending email address? Is there a rationale? Add a chat function, a calendar, a task list, but do not offer basic information that is needed to identify malicious email?

How does the project prioritize feature development? This does not reflect well on the project. Is there any official rationale for why this situation continues?
