Migrated mail server & updated URLs, but Thunderbird still references old server

Hi,

I recently migrated my mails (own domain) to another provider.

IMAP & SMTP urls were changed accordingly for the relevant accounts within Thunderbird. After restarting, it asked me twice for the new server's password: 1x each for send/receive – both work properly, as do the rest of folders apparently.

But: If I open Properties in the IMAP folders' right click menu, the dialog still lists the old server's URL in their location (and that field is not editable).

Weirder yet: Despite Thunderbird having asked for the passwords while showing the "new" server's URL (& me storing them in the password manager), it still reports the "old" server's URLs as provider in the "Saved passwords…" dialog. This is repeats if I delete these passwords and have it ask again.

Is this a known issue?

Thunderbird 91.10.0

I appreciate that there is a ton of functional tools working well and that there are an equal number of problems backlogged, and I appreciate all the good hard work and the genuine help that is done. Having said that,

WHY IN THE HELL HAS MY HISTORY BEEN HIJACKED? I am forced to use fOOGLE fHROME by UNINTELLIGENT FORCES but I use FIREFOX FOR A HANDFUL OF IMPORTANT THINGS. I need to revisit a VERY IMPORTANT WEBSITE LAST VISITED a few months ago, which should be easily spotted but when I OPENED MY HISTORY AND CAN ONLY SEE MOUNTAINS OF fOOGLE GARBAGE.

I read that you guys went corporate, but I didn't think you would sell out to fOOGLE. You used to be the best. Now you are subservient to the worst. It's a damn shame; no wonder everyone is losing trust in Foxzilla.

Now I'm forced to waste this time (a second time, as I was stupid enough to click on Share Data below which wiped out my previously more polite comment/question).

I am getting the following errors due to vulnerabilities detected by Acronis Ceber protect:

VERACODE:32409 VERACODE:33582 VERACODE:33588 VERACODE:33883

Along with 52 more veracodes listed as critical

I have installed & uninstalled firefox and it no longer will run on my MAC.

Here is the warning I get when I look up more details from Acronis:

ERROR: 'VERACODE:32409' is a malformed CVE-ID. 'VERACODE:32409' is a malformed CVE-ID. It does not conform to the expected CVE-ID syntax, and it could not be converted into a valid ID.

CVE entries are of the form CVE-YYYY-NNNN where:

YYYY is a year (exactly 4 digits), and NNNN is a number (with at least 4 digits, or more than 4 when needed.) Examples of CVE-IDs that conform to the syntax: CVE-1999-0003, CVE-2014-9999, CVE-2014-12345, CVE-2014-7654321

Note: Beginning in 2014, more than 4 digits are allowed in the last portion of CVE IDs. For more information, see the CVE-ID Syntax Change page.

Old-style candidate names (CAN-YYYY-XXXX) are also accepted, but this style was discontinued in 2005, and further use is strongly discouraged.

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

I have been having an issue with TB not highlighting (aka changing folder name font to bold and showing number of unread messages inside beside it) some folders which have received new messages. The folders appear as if nothing has been received. The new messages are in fact inside after I open the folders but they are already marked as read despite me never actually reading them or even opening the folder. Restarting TB or PC or downloading mails does not fix it. It is possible to be completely unaware of a new mail until I manually check every folder for those "ghost messages".

To be clear I do have all the 3 options of checking for new mails turned on on every adress added in TB.

Hi. I am getting the dreaded server connection timeout on thunderbird. The interesting part is, that it happens only when connected to one specific wifi network. And not all the time - 3 days its ok, than for 1 day, i am getting the error all the time, then it suddently works for some time... I tried all kinds of countermeasures (prolonging the timeout time, disabling antivirus, changing the proxy stettings...). Nothing works. I really have no idea where to continue my investigation... Obviously, the problem has something to do with my wifi configuration, just cant figure out what. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi, Since last week all HTML messages, which I reply to, pop-up in inbox with polish characters replaced by "question mark signs" - every letter in mail. They seem to be sent properly by checking them in Sent folder in TB as well as OWA. Configuration is clean and proper. Tried several changes in TB configuration, but they don't help. MS Support reached out to me in that matter, but they don't support TB. Patient: OS: Windows 10 64 bit 21H2 TB: 91.10 64bit (tried older versions on clean machines with the same problem)

Thanks in advance for your support!

Hi. I have been using Thunderbird for years and it's been great. I just recently purchased a new Windows 11 computer and installed Thunderbird 91.10.0 (64-bit) on it. I've set up my 3 different email accounts on it using IMAP and all are sending and receiving fine. My Gmail account seems to be leaving old emails on my local machine but both my Yahoo and GMX accounts are deleting old emails from my inbox after 1 month. I don't want this to happen and want them to be left both on the server and on my local machine until I delete them. This works fine on my older computer, but not on the new one.

In Properties for those accounts, in the Retention Policy, "Use My Account Settings" is not selected, while "Don't Delete Any Messages" and "Always Keep Starred Messages" both are selected. In the account settings, "Clean Up (Expunge) Inbox On Exit" is not selected and "Keep Messages For All Folders On This Account", "Don't Delete Any Messages", and "Always Keep Starred Messages" are all selected.

I also receive emails from all of these accounts on my Android phone and they are staying there and not being deleted when they are more than 30 days old.

I have no idea why my older messages are not staying on my computer or what else I should try.

Any help that I could get with this would be really appreciated.

Thanks

Marcus

Hi very new to Thunderbird, and I'm having a nightmare getting discarded folders and sub-folders to empty from the Local Folders - Trash folder. I have already tried every solution I have found online, including:

The obvious- right-clicking on each folder and sub-folder in the Trash folder, and selecting delete. After of the confirmation of the choice, nothing happens.

Deleting the trash and trash.msf files in the Mail - Local Folders directory (when TBird is closed) and restarting.

Deleting the foldertree.json and trash.sbd files and restarting.

Deleting the global-messages-db.sqlite file to rebuild the golbal database and retrying everything above.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have been using Outlook (Office 2010, Windows 7) for many years for multiple e-mail accounts, including about 6 Gmail accounts and 1 "other" IMAP e-mail account. I have "rules" that copy certain types of e-mails into specific folders in different accounts. I have separate inboxes for each account. But now, G-mail no longer can work with Outlook from Office 2010. I purchased Office 2021 but that will not work with Windows 7. And my computer and multiple scanners and other software will not work with newer Windows... Therefore, I'm looking for another e-mail client that will work with my multiple Gmail and other accounts and permit automatic copying and moving of certain types of messages between folders. Also to have MANY folders in one particular (non Gmail) account. Can I configure Thunderbird to perform these tasks? If not, is there any other e-mail client that would be more suitable for me? Thank you.

I'm not sure what is causing this, but it started at least a few months ago. I will be using firefox, and anywhere between a few minutes, or a few days, it will suddenly stop loading anything and I will have to completely quit it and restart it to get anything working again. No, it is not the HTTP3 problem; that was the first thing I tried. I've also uninstalled, and reinstalled the entire program, clearing all settings, etc. I am on windows. Generally good on firefox updates, will check and update usually every week or two.

Funny thing is, I also installed firefox nightly and that does not have this problem (although I have not used it as extensively as I normally do when browsing, so maybe I didn't hit whatever triggers this issue). It also works properly on other computers (as far as I'm aware). So I still think something is corrupt or wrong with my normal firefox program. I just don't know what or how.
