Is there a way to recover my stored emails from the version of Thunderbird I had on my Windows XP system that was upgraded to Windows 8?

I can find the folder Windows.old and locate the Thunderbird files in there, but can't find any old email info. Do they exist and if so where to find them?

I am in the process of upgrading from a Pentium 4 running Windows XP Home (SP3) to an Intel Core i7-4770 system under Windows 8 (x64). At the same time I am looking into the possibility of changing my mail program to Thunderbird.

I have installed Thunderbird 24.3.0, and I am gradually getting into the workings. Generally I like what I am seeing, but I have one major problem -- it takes a very long time for e-mails to be processed, whether they are being sent or received.

In researching this problem in Mozilla support I did find a reference to Bitdefender which I am using as an AV program. Is there some component of Thunderbird which I should be excluding from Bitdefender's attentions, or can anyone suggest any other reasons for the glacial pace of e-mail input/output?

Often, though not always, when I open THUNDERBIRD I'm not able to delete or move messages. I need to close the program and reopen. Similarly, when sending emails, sometimes things works smoothly and sometimes they hang up on saving to the SENT box. Apparently they DO get sent but I can't keep a copy. If I close and reopen, then it works as it should.

I'm running Windows 8.1, AVAST internet security, and Thunderbird 24.3.

Just trying to log in to Thunderbird. It does'nt recognize my login or password. I try to change them, Thunderbird says it sent new one to my email. Go to my email and its not there. What i am eventually trying to do is to find a tutorial of how to use my newly installed pgp program. I need something simple that I c an write down and follow so I don't make a mistake. I am NOT "computer literate" in any way. EVERYTHING is a struggle for me so having a "cheat sheet" for pgp protocol is the only way I can think of to commit it to memory. Sorry for the long winded message, don't know any other way to get my point accross. Thanks, Charles

What is the easiest method to import the outlook 2003 contacts (adresbook) to Thunderbird which is installed on Ubuntu. (Windows XP + Ubuntu 14.04 installed on same computer)

I'm a bit surprised that even today, this somehow seems to remain kind of a problem. Articles are pointing to complicated procedures, implicating various other programs which should helping in resolving what should be a simple import of the oulook.pst files.

Outlook can export to various type of files. Which format could Thunderbird itself use to import "directly" with some chance of succes ?

I trust that Mozilla is aware of it that it still is a point of concern to users. Focussing on migration is the first priority after installation.

I found a very good Dutch article about installation http://support.mozilla.org/nl/kb/thunderbird-installeren-linux.

But about importing from Oulook (2003 or other) , I wasn't able to find some straigthforward guidance for a "easy" and simple import operation, probably because there still isn't one yet.

Thank you.

TB signs onto my mail server as [<IP address>]. Strictly speaking this is "illegal", especially if this is a reserved (non-public) address, since the EHLO/HELO is supposed to enable the machine to be identified. How can I get it to identify itself with an FQDN?

Reason: If I can do this, I can configure my server to drop connections from clients sending HELO/EHLO [<IP address>] which would strengthen my SPAM defence.

My original disk lost its XP Pro, so I got a new PC. I can still access most files on my old disk, as it is now attached via an external enclosure, but I cannot find how to get access to my old Thunderbird inbox. "File Transfer Wizard" is missing, and MS Search is broken and won't start. T'Bird works fine on the new disk/PC, but I need to look up some correspondence on the old disk. Is there some file I can point T'Bird to, that will contain my old emails ? Can I somehow merge the old and current files so I can search on a subject or person ?
