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.

Thunderbird 115 included in 24.04 LTS installation.

My profiles are located on the SD card working well on other two laptops running ubuntu 22.04. Swap SD cards between two laptops is my way of working with Thunderbird since 13.04.

After installation 24.04 LTS (and Thunderbird 115 included). Following the instruction for adding old profile to the new Thunderbird. Help->thunderbird information->about:profiles. Creating new profile. 1) Using the function CHOOSE FOLDER indicated the path to the profile /media/VB/AB49-E208/Thunderbird profile 2) The path to the folder shown by Thunderbird is different (and strange): /run/user/1000/doc/58235/Thunderbird

When looking into the directory tree the folder is empty (obviously). Thunderbird therefore cannot reach the profile located on SD card and doesn't work.

QUESTION: Is there any way to overwrite the profile folder path in Thunderbird 115 ?

Hi there. I wiped my C Drive and reinstalled windows 11 on my PC. Completely from scratch.

The first few thing I did is download firefox. I believe in the first boot of firefox, I can download things fine, I installed Ublock Origin add-on and a few installers for the app that I need to use. I can't recall when, but after a few reboot, I noticed that Firefox can't download anything, every download link I click on, the download fail instantly, I can't install add-ons as well.

I tried reinstall firefox, changing download folder target, nothing helped.

Can you take a look please? Thank you!

Hi, David replied to my original question as to why the Folders are not loading off the Yahoo server onto a new computer as they are on my old computer.

The Thunderbird version on the OLD computer utilises a IMAP Mail Server. The version I downloaded yesterday and installed on this new computer utilises a POP Mail Server with no option I can see to change this. Screen Capture attached.

So Presumably I need the IMAP Mail Server version of the App. If I'm correct where would I download it from?

Thank you and kind regards, Mark.

Tēnā koutou (Hello everyone),

I deleted Firefox to re-install it after playing with profiles and that not working how I wanted it to (yet). I uninstalled the app from the applications and the library on my Mac and reinstalled Firefox. Now when I open Firefox it says that it's up and running but no windows actually open up for me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it again and it still won't open windows. I have to force quit Firefox as nothing shows up in my top tool bar to even show Firefox as open.

How can I get Firefox to actually install and be functioning on my computer again?

Running (as of an hour ago) macOS 14.5 (was using previous up to date OS when I installed Firefox again.

TIA

Hi, I have upgraded my computer and Thunderbird, however only the INBOX folder is loading.

I have followed the instructions to migrate the folders from the 'Profile Folder' on the old computer, the data has transferred but is not organised as folders, as on the old computer and of course on the main server.

I don't mind if all the data is not on my computer so long as the Folders are there, empty or not but organised in as they are on the main server.

I'm wondering if I selected an incorrect setting while setting up the account within Thunderbird on the new computer.

Thank you and kind regards, Mark.
