Hello. First of all, I was already searching an found this question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285465). It seems to be exactly my problem, but it is archived, so I had to open a new one.

I am using Sieve Filter, this is why some new mails are sorted into direcotries via the server, before I even start Thunderbird.

I read in the other questions, that this has to be an issue regarding the VPN, Anti-Virus Software. This is why I have set up the same account in Apple Mail, with the same Settings. In Apple Mail I don't have this issue. New mails show up in their directory without clicking the directory.

Does anyone have an idea, how to find the problem? For me it seems to be a bug on showing new mail. Maybe the new mails are there, but Thunderbird has a problem in showing them?

Thanks for your help and kind regards.

I am trying to migrate my profile from one machine to the other. I have manged to do this sucessfully and the first time I open thunderbird the mail is all there, everythign works sending recieving etc. But if I close it and re-open, or if I open again after a shut down or restart the frames are completely blank and even the tabs for actions at the top don't show unless I repeatedly double click on them. then they don't actually do anything anyway.

 I have followed on seperate occasions, the instructions for copying the profile folder contents and then becasue I was having trouble, using Moz backup. I keep getting the same issue.

Copy files to the right place, click thunderbird everything loads and functions that first time, then when its been closed again and reopened, I just get blank frames. Please help... I just can't get what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance

To Whom It May Concern:

Are there any plans to integrate Thunderbird with the Windows 10 Notification system, and suspend Thunderbird's own internal notification? The Thunderbird notification does not display all notifications when emails are received from multiple accounts; it's thought that the Windows 10 notification might be superior at stacking all new messages.

I have purchased Mailwasher Pro to identify spam before it is downloaded to my computer. The problem is that even when I untick the option to "check for new messages every x minutes" new emails are still being downloaded. This means that I am not able to stop certain messages being downloaded to my computer before I have a chance to vet and delete them via Mailwasher Pro. Just in case, I have also unticked "Allow immediate server notifications when new messages arrive" - I don't know what that does so unticked it in case it was causing the problem but still the emails download automatically.

Can anyone advise me please what might be causing this problem? I have contacted support at Mailwasher Pro and they have assured me that the app does not interfere with the way Thunderbird downloads emails. Also the support person I was emailing told me that he had his settings the same as mine and his emails do not get downloaded automatically.

Thank you

Hi

I am migrating a Windows 7 PC to Linux Mint.

Originally the PC had Seamonkey, and reading about the migration I decided it is best to switch to Thunderbird. Migration from Seamonkey to Thunderbird worked fine on Windows 7.

I followed the instructions to migrate from Windows 7 to Linux on this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277613 but it does not appear to work.

I have done the following: 1. I renamed all files and folders under .thunderbird folder in Linux with -old so that I can recover them in case they are needed 2. Copied all files and folders including the ini files from Thunderbird profile in Windows to .thunderbird in Linux Mint 3. Copied all files from Profile folder into .thunderbird folder so profile folder is empty 4. I removed pkcs11.txt from the profile folder 5. Started Thunderbird in Linux

However, what I get is a message "Need to create a new profile because this is an older version", and it creates a new profile but it is all empty. No accounts (I have 5 accounts), no emails, or passwords!

I have checked and both Windows and Linux Thunderbird installations are the latest available versions. Windows (78.7.1 - 32-bit) and Linux (68.10.0 64-bit). I know I have not converted 32-bit to 64-bit, but I am unsure if that is the cause and if it is, how to carry out the conversion (and on which machine).

Greetings. A strange thing happened this morning. Thunderbird downloaded a bunch of messages as soon as I turned it on, the last one being three hours ago. Yet, after I didn't receive any messages for a while, I looked at my my cell phone and it shows I have an additional ten messages that have arrived since then, but they don't appear in Thunderbird.

I can send messages out from Thunderbird, and they arrive without a problem. They just stopped coming in.

I have checked my server settings, and nothing seems amiss there.

I started using Thunderbird yesterday and was impressed at how easy it was to set up and just start working.

This is just weird. Can anyone hold a hand over their monitor and divine a problem from afar? Thanks!

I copied all emails from an Old server to a New server using Thunderbird but somehow Thunderbird created duplicates. Here are the steps i did:

Thunderbird Setup Old server - setup Local Directory Thunderbird Setup New Server - setup Local Directory Switched to Offline mode, so working with all emails local copy. While in Offline, copy all emails from Old Server to New Server Switch to Online Thunderbird starts uploading all (local) New server emails to New Server End result: When in Offline mode, I have all emails in New Server (as expected) When I go into Online mode, I have all duplicates. Its seems I am then seeing all server and local copies of each email. How can I get rid of duplicates or get them to sync correctly?

Hi all,

upfront I have to admit that I hadn't been paying close enough attention when I ran my Linux distro's updates this morning and stepped into the Thunderbird v78.x upgrade trap.

It's a mess. What's extra annoying is that I had made the decision to avoid this v78.x upgrade until this OpenPGP implementation will have matured, since having the GPG passphare stored on the drive is wrong on so many levels. And 'no', setting a master password is no sensible 'workaround' ! This is what I am talking about: https://www.ghacks.net/2020/12/07/you-need-to-use-a-master-password-in-thunderbird-if-you-use-openpgp/

So this is what I did so far: - restored a previous system snapshot (Linux Mint 20.1) - changed the Thunderbird launcher command to "thunderbird --allow-downgrade %u" - launched Thunderbird - reinstalled language packs and addons, incl. Enigmail - removed the master password which I set up after this TB v78.7.1 upgrade was performed

These are my questions/issues: 1) How do I remove all that which was done to my profile folder in the course of this upgrade? (I would have a full copy of that profile folder, unfortunetaly only from November 2020 and I'm using POP3 instead of IMAP for all accounts)

2) How do I get rid of this OpenPGP stuff in every e-mail account under Settings?

3) How do I ensure that NO passphrase remains stored ANYWHERE on PC as a result of this upgrade? Do I have to manually edit the key4.db SQLite database or would using the older version of that from this November 2020 backup be helpful, since, if I understand things correctly, this OpenPGP implementation uses that file for storing such information?

4) How do I get Enigmail to work again? Opening Enigmail settings shows my key(s) but the Enigmail icons on the menu bar are grayed out. What am I missing?

5) Which *.bak files in the profile folder do need need attention/renaming/replacing?

A BIG thank you to everyone who can help clear up this mess in advance!

Dears,

to get a useful (= ISO style) date and time format, I set the environment variable LC_TIME to lt_LT.UTF-8.

This works fine for the email inbox and for replies, but now the lightning calendar shows e.g. "2021 m. vasario 24 d. trečiadienis 12:00". As I don't speak lt, I can't easily interpret that :-)

Can I change the lightning calendar date format to a shorter one, i.e. ISO style "2021-02-24 12:00"?
