Hi,

I recently re-installed Thunderbird mail and about 30 received emails in my Yahoo mail have no dates in them. They are therefore listed in the Inbox with the date and time of when I installed Thunderbird. I have tracked a few down in Firefox Yahoo mail and they are correctly dated there. In the actual emails in Thunderbird, the date is absent in the email header. I didn't have this problem with my Thunderbird Gmail account but it could simply be that the problem emails are from certain senders. I used the "repair folder" which didn't fix anything but it reset the problematic emails to the date and time I when I used the repair function.

This is quite frustrating and I cannot see any logical solution. I hope someone can help.

Regards Hans L

I just installed Thunderbird on a new Windows 10 PC yesterday. Everything worked, for a while.

When I went to use TB later at night I could not open TB & got a message it was already running but not responding. There were 2 instances showing in Task Manager but I could not close them. Sometimes when I tried a message came up saying "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied". I had to power off the PC to clear out TB.

TB was working again but just to be safe I uninstalled and reinstalled it. And it continued to work after that. Until this morning, and now the same problem.

In addition, when I went to use Firefox it now had the same problem. FF was installed several days ago but there never was a problem till now. There were several instances of FF in Task Manager and I could end most of them, but there was one where I got the "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied".

Now the PC was stuck with TB and FF that could not be closed, and I had to power off the PC to clear them out.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be appreciated. Thanks

The option is no longer available with Thunderbird 91.1.1 (64-bit), what happen, why this feature was removed? Programming team running amok again? or QA team sleeping at the wheel? Please put back that option thanks

Only displaying drafts folder

Today I've been getting Thunderbird to work with a DreamHost email address. It's now connected but I couldn't find drafts. I would write a draft and then it didn't show up. I read I should set View > Folders > All, and it was like that, but I couldn't see drafts anywhere.

So after some struggle I figured I had to set it up to store the drafts on a local folder. I tried to set that but it kept changing back to storing it on my DreamHost mail folder online. That doesn't work for me, I haven't signed into that for years, it just forwards to my gmail. It would be a pain in the butt to have to sign into that, it's why I set up Thunderbird. I thought, maybe getting files to and from DreamHost is just super slow.

So I tried setting the Local Folders to a folder I could reach, by making a thunderbird folder in my Documents folder, since by this time I thought maybe I'd need to open them manually or something, I was getting really confused. Everything was gone once I closed it and I didn't know where it was supposed to be, so I was just randomly guessing by this time. After a while that worked. Sort of.

Sadly, I couldn't tell you how I got here, but now Thunderbird's first tab is showing the drafts folder. I click 'Get Messages', and go down in the menu to specify to do so from the email address I set this up for, and nothing happens. I create an email and save it as a draft, and it shows up in the messages list. (Oh, was that what was supposed to happen all along? That makes sense!) Except if I close Thunderbird and open it again, the draft is gone. And that's all I get, a tab for my dysfunctional Drafts folder.

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04.3 and it's up to date.

Please send help. How can I get out of this royal mess? Thank you

I have just set up Thunderbird for the first time as a client for my e-mail on domain mozart.co.uk

It is seeing the received mail fine. But when I send an e-mail (as a reply or a new mail) I get a window "Sending message" with a progress bar. As it reaches the end I get an error message (every time):

"Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) mozart.co.uk was lost in the middle of the transaction. Try again."

Can anyone tell me what I have to do?

(Hope this can be fixed as, apart from this, I really like the program!)

Thunderbird auto-updated from 78.14 to 91.1.1 yesterday. I'm using Thunderbird to access my Gmail account via IMAP. Everything was working fine in version 78, but now when I open a new message, the last deleted message reappears in the inbox.

If I have multiple new messages in my inbox, read one and delete it, as soon as I open the next message, the one I just deleted will reappear. Sometimes deleting the message that reappeared causes the another one to reappear, and I have to keep deleting them again until they stop.

For example, just now I had two unread messages when I started up Thunderbird. I read the first one and deleted it. When I opened the second one, the first one reappeared. When I deleted the second message, and then re-deleted the first message, the second message reappeared. Deleting second message one caused the first message to reappear again. This went back and forth several times before they stopped reappearing.

Profiles Folder on NAS, accessing from Windows PC and Linux PC => "Unable to open the summary file for Inbox. Perhaps there was an error on disk, or the full path is too long"

Dear Community,

thank you for this great piece of software like Thunderbird or Firefox!

This question was asked quite some times, but I never found a definitive answer. I have the Thunderbird "profiles folder" on an SMB NAS folder, which is either accessed by a Thunderbird Windows 10 PC or by a Thunderbird running on Ubuntu Linux. Both Thunderbirds are configured to use the the same profile folder for each email account saved.

The following happens: 0. I create a backup of the Thunderbird profiles folder 1. I am starting Thunderbird on Windows. This works fine, since this is my main machine and used regularly. 2. I close Thunderbird on Windows 3. I open Thunderbird on Linux. All the Email accounts are listed correctly and the google calendar access works fine. On the Home-Tab, the message "Unable to open the summary file for Inbox. Perhaps there was an error on disk, or the full path is too long" is displayed and I cannot access the emails. The length of the path is 111 characters long, so I think it should be fine. Also the Linux has complete acces to the NAS folder. 4. I close the Thunderbird on Linux 5. I open the Thunderbird on Windows. All messages from all Email accounts are downloaded again by the Thunderbird on Windows. 6. To skip this, I close the Thunderbird on Windows and go back to the backup from "0.". When I restart Thunderbird on Windows, Thunderbird start as expected.

My question: How do I use two Thunderbirds with one profile folder to avoid having a ~20 GB profile folder on each machine? What settings could I try on the Linux Thunderbird so it can access the summary file?

I am happy for any hints :) Have a great day

I've succeeded (with a lot of outside help - thank you Which?) in transferring my TB profile following the replacement of my HDD with an SSD. Now I'm stuck again, trying to transfer my address book from my saved back-up into the newly-installed copy of TB .

I have followed the clear instructions on this site regarding the need to export the address books as an LDIF file. But when I have selected this format in the box at the bottom of the AB page, and pressed 'Save', I cannot then find the saved file to transfer it to a thumb drive to install it into the fresh copy of TB. Where is it, for goodness sake? What am I missing (apart from a digital brain, of course)?

I want to create an extension for Mozilla Thunderbird that implement some sort of black list. It is possible to create filter rules for mails and I want to add a button which create filter rule for selected address. These rules are stored in msgFilterRules.dat file and I could manually edit it but only when Thunderbird is closed.

Is there any way to manipulate this file with some sort of API or WebExtensions?

Does anyone have an explanation or solution?

I have an Xfinity/Comcast POP email account through Thunderbird.

For years, I have reliably used the Download/Sync Now button under the Get/Send Messages tab to sync my email back to the server (i.e. delete emails from the server which I've trashed on the Thunderbird client).

Suddenly, out of the blue, and without changing any settings, this feature no longer works, and emails I delete on the Thunderbird client remain on the server.
