Hello,

I have recently set up thunderbird 60 on Ubuntu desktop which is also having windows as the alternate boot(Dual boot - windows and linux). I am sharing the same account across the two OS and the mails already downloaded on one OS, is getting downloaded again on the other OS. That is, if I have downloaded one email on windows thunderbird, the same mail is getting downloaded again in ubuntu thunderbird again. Thus I see 2 emails for each message received.

I found my problem already raised by another user, which has been archived: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1250898|here]

In my view, the problem in the above issue thread was not resolved; instead, the workaround of setting mails to be deleted on the POP server worked for him.

For me, I cannot delete the emails from the server and adopt the solution given in the thread. Thus I have to find why this is happening. I have second account configured which does not have this problem. There seems to be some issue with the folders etc, I have tried repairing folders, compacting them and even reconfiguring the account, but I have not been successful till now. It must be some some mistake I am making during configuration or something I am missing, I am not sure.

Thanks in advance!

Please - can anyone tell how to backup only email account configuration: mail server settings (server address, port, protocol, etc), usernames, passwords, email account aliases, RSS accounts, etc. Would be good to include here Address Book but sometimes it would be good to be able to backup Address Book separately. Hopefully all email accounts would be possible to backup regardless of authentication type. I mean also email accounts using OAuth2 authentication. Also would be good to be able backup Thunderbird own settings separately. Sometimes is only email account settings important to backup, sometimes also Thunderbird settings, e.g. extensions separately. As usually there are IMAP-protocol used then emails are not needed to backup what most such extensions are offering like ImportExportTools NG. As you can read from https://support.mozilla.org/et/questions/1281340 - backuping whole profile (including emails) requires enormous amount of storage space. Sometimes is needed certainly also email backup itself. It would be very much appreciated if there could be an option to select manually every component that is included into backup and what is not. I've tried to find these files manually what to copy to backup these settings mentioned above but haven't succeeded to figure out which file is connected to which part of settings. Certainly I prefer free and open-source solutions. Certainly also restoring backupped settings flawlessly.

Using currently 64-bit Thunderbird 68.11 under GNU/Linux, manually downloaded as user from Thunderbird homepage. Usually tutorials handle all data (including emails) that are not needed and do not allow to distinguish only required part of data: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer https://www.auralsolutions.com/2012/12/how-to-backup-thunderbird-data-emails-and-contacts/ https://github.com/thundernest/import-export-tools-ng https://www.iperiusbackup.net/en/backup-thunderbird-and-restore-email-and-account/ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-thunderbird-stores-user-data#w_backing-up-a-profile http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_backup http://kb.mozillazine.org/Moving_your_profile_folder

Hello! I added two gmail accounts to thunderbird (let's call them gmail A and gmail B), with the aim of copying all emails from one account into the other. However, I discovered I really wanted to copy gmail A over to gmail C instead. I want to remove gmail B from thunderbird, but that is my primary account. I am worried that if I remove an account, it will delete all content in my actual gmail account, which I don't want at all. Does removing an gmail account from thunderbird delete the content in gmail, or just de-link the account, which is all I want?

In previous versions of Thunderbird, I used to type the Mailing List name in the To, CC or BCC fields, and it would appear in the format: Mailing List <'Mailing List'>, and then when I sent the email Thunderbird would insert all the email addresses from the mailing list and send the email. In Thunderbird 78.4.0 it appears in the format Mailing List <Mailing List> (i.e. without the single quote marks) and sending the email gives the error message:

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.1.3 The recipient address <Mailing List> is not a valid RFC-5321 553 5.1.3 address. z15sm5942088wmk.4 - gsmtp. Please check the message recipient "Mailing List" and try again.

The same error occurs if I open the Contacts Sidebar and select the Mailing List from there. It does appear to work correctly if I select the Mailing List in the Address Book, and then click Write to start a new email, but that cannot be used for forwarding an email (which I often need to do).

Is this a known bug, and is there a workaround?

I just had to get a new laptop as the old one died. I have successfully installed Thunderbird, entered my email address and password, and have downloaded all the waiting emails. When I try to reply to an email, I get an error message "Login to server smtp.madasafish.com with username anniedunn failed." I've tied to sort it by following advice in mozilla support, and also in my mail provider Plusnet support, but I can't get it to work. Luckily I can access my mail via webmail and reply using this facility. Can anyone help me resolve this problem?

Hi,

We use a Business email account with gmail. This account has over 50,000 emails from the last 5 - 6 years. We were using Windows Live Mail POP email client till a few months back but now have migrated to Thunderbird. However, Thunderbird is not downloading all the emails at one time. It started with the oldest emails a few hundred at a time and it has downloaded around 20,000 messages so far. Now it is downloading 15 - 30 messages at one time.

Is there a way to force thunderbird to download all the emails at one time ?

I will appreciate any help.

Thanks & Regards

Hi All,

For some reason, I have two versions of Firefox showing in my Programs and Features, on Windows 7.

Version 74.0, installed 13/03/2020, and version 80.0, installed 28/08/2020.

I've seen another topic mentioning this problem for older versions, and tried using a Registry Cleaner as mentioned in that one - but it has made no difference, and both versions are still there.

I'm wary of trying to uninstall the 74.0 version using the Firefox uninstaller, as when I start that there is no mention of it just uninstalling 74.0 - it gives the impression it is uninstalling all versions, which is not something I want.

I just don't need two versions of Firefox on my PC, especially when the older version is no longer used.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
