Hi, I'm a MTB newbie Version 115.11.1 and am just trying to import my comcast.net address book from CSV. MTB seems to be totally confused about the columns. I'd be happy to adjust the column assignments, as I think I'm supposed to, but it won't let me. The automatically selected column name is the only option allowed in the drop-down. See attached.

Is this by design? Do I need to reorder the columns within the exported file. Seems a bit much really, but ultimately doable, I guess.

Any other options? Or what am I doing wrong

TIA Tim

How to purge local copies of email for IMAP accounts

Once you add a new account, you have to race to open up the settings and turn off the "Download all mails" setting that is hardwired as the default. Even after having done that, I am left with GB of copies of mail messages that I don't want to store on my local system.

How do I get rid of those local copies? Compacting doesn't seem to do it - there's no "Compact now" button in any case. I don't know what "when it will save over N MB in total" means, exactly. Save compared to what? Now 50% off!

Likewise, if I have Message Synchronizing (Keep messages in all folders etc) turned off, but Disk Space - Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age is still selected, is it going to download copies anyway or no?

If it will download anyway, or if it already did download, if I change the Synchronizing setting to "only the last 30 days" will it remove the older local copies? When?

The only "recover disk space" option deletes both local copies and originals on the remote server.

There really should be a "purge local copies" action available in the client. It may be that it is OK to go out to the OS and remove certain files myself, but maybe it won't be in the future. Every note that is about "Simply open a Terminal window..." describes specific files that don't quite match what I see here in May of 2024 on a Mac. But the tool itself knows what can be removed safely.

I was stupid and loaded down what I thought was an updated version, 115, of Thunderbird. Many of the folders with saved emails has dissapered. How can I get them back? Why is the number of saved emails shown on some of the folders. How to make the shown number to dissapear? How can I take away old emails in the infolder. In the previus version was that possible. I had to make all accounts once again. Shall it be that in an update? How can I get back the previous versin? I am not pleased with this new 115-version.

My existing email provider (iiNet) here in Australia is no longer offering an email service. I have been recommended (by iiNet) to transfer to a company called 'The Messaging Company'. Already I have had an issue with the Messaging Company on account of their poor customer service. I note that Thunderbird has a Global Inbox. Does this mean that you are able to offer me an email service that will allow me to keep my current email address?: brucepitt@iinet.net.au If you are able to help, an estimate of the cost for this service would be appreciated. Thanks in anticipation, Bruce Pitt Queensland Australia

I'm trying to migrate Thunderbird from my old PC/Windows 10 to my brand-new PC/Windows 10, following the step-by-step instructions on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer. I followed those instructions to the letter (multiple times) but can't get it to work. Are there more recent (and perhaps more complete) instructions to be found elsewhere? Does anyone else have the same?

I have made a copy of my old TB profile folder on a backup stick (it is titled 'Thunderbird', and inside that folder is a folder titled 'Profiles' that contains a number of folders including the most recent profile that I am still using with my old PC. The difficulty is getting this backed up profile info installed on my new 'destination' computer.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Moved to new country (UK) took TB data with me as instructed. Installed TB did put in email data. Uploaded TB data as per instructions. Opened TB and put in email password etc. All my current emails show up no problems and email account appears to work but none of the uploaded data appears even though it took 15 min to upload. It feels like it was uploaded to the 'wrong' place but I uploaded the data it to the TB folder as instructed. Any idea what I did wrong??

I need to download & install TB ver 31.8.0 to a newly installed system running ubuntu 22.04.

My earler installation of TB 31.8.0 on my other computer has critical information on it, running under ubuntu 14.04. It's so old that i cannot access the internet on it.

So I'm hoping to install TB 31.8.0 on this new computer, copy my TB profile from my old computer to this new computer, then do the necessary updates to this newly installed version of TB 31.8.0 to bring it up to TB vers 115

Thanks in advance!

I installed Supernova after almost 2 decades away from Thunderbird. I created an Supernova IMAP account connected with my Gmail account. It was orders of magnitude easier than using Outlook.

I need to open a hierarchy of Thunderbird email folders from 2 decades ago. They take the form of associated *.msf files and, for each, either an extensionless MBOX file or a *.sbd subfolder with the same filename stem as the *.msf file.

I thought that I could simple navigate within the Supernova GUI to open the MSF file, but all it does is show the text of the MSF file in a separaste tab from my email. No hierarchy of folders appears in the email folder pane.

I realize that I can explore 3rd party tools, but these old files are native Thunderbird files. Surely there is a way to open them?
