This started last week. Nothing changed on my computer or Thunderbird that I know of. I can't send e-mails using Thunderbird. I get the attached error msg. If I go to their internet site "https://webmail.spectrum.net/mail/", I can send with no problems. I called Spectrum and, of course, they said they don't get involved with third-party apps. My wife has the same problem on a different computer and her account. This happened about a year ago and after a few weeks the problem went away. So either Spectrum or Mozilla fixed it. Hopefully you can help so I don't have to use their website (which is garbage).

So I was using a vert old Thunderbird, probably version 50-something, and have an app that sends email via MAPI that ends up going through Thunderbird and was working just fine.

Life is good.

Then I upgraded to version 60-something and then jumped to the newest of the new.

Now when my app sends an eMail I still get the warning from Thunderbird that another app is trying to send email but when I click Yes for allow this - the email never goes out/through.

Thoughts anyone?

I've been using Thunderbird for several years but in the past 2 or 3 years I've had nothing but problems getting it to work with Gmail. I've spent hours trying all of the "Fixes" found on the internet. Some work, some don't but in all cases the problem keeps coming back. It's always a security/password problem. I've implemented 2 step verification in Google. I've also tried just using a password. I think I've tried every combination of authentication. Does anyone have a "Silver Bullet" that I can use to get this to work. I'm giving it one more try and then I'm moving on. If it turns out that I have to move on, can anyone suggest the next best mail client to Thunderbird?

Thanks

Having used Thunderbird for many years, today I can't send mail, and recieved the attached message.

My ISP offers an online mail option, and on that I CAN receive email, but I want to continue to use Thunderbird as I've used it for a long time, and have filed all of my archived emails.

Apparently, my SMTP settings are incorrect, but I've tried everything. I've also turned off my Norton Firewall and anti-virus, but still the same issue.

I can receive mail, but I just can't send.

SMTP settings also attached.

I am running Windows 10 and Thunderbird 68.11.0 32-bit.

Thanks.

In May I backed up my Thunderbird profile (which uses IMAP).

Subsequently, my Windows 10 user profile got corrupted and to fix it, I had to transfer my TB folders to a different Windows user profile.

After doing so, I noticed that searches of my TB email didn't always show all relevant emails.

I continued using TB without any other obvious issues. While using it in June, I created some new subfolders and saved about 300 emails into these half-dozen new folders.

Then in July, I made a backup of TB again.

Now I recently installed a new replacement hard drive in my laptop and did a fresh install of Windows 10.

I need to install TB and then restore either the May or July backup to my new Windows 10 configuration.

If I restore the May backup, am I correct that the folders I created in July won't show up? Will the emails that I had placed in those folders just be back in my main Inbox?

If I restore the July backup, I assume that all my newer half-dozen sub-folders, and their emails, will all be restored. But I'm wondering if the indexing on the July backup may have been corrupted, and if I'll have to fix that.

Which would you recommend as a more practical choice for restoring, the May backup or the July one?

I just want to confirm [referencing https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280939 ] that I am understanding correctly:

I have an IMAP account, and some of my emails have been downloaded from IMAP to local Thunderbird folders.

Now I am going to be migrating my TB data from one computer to another.

Is it correct that I only have to back up and restore my AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird folder -- and that this will restore my locally saved emails as well?

If the answer is yes, just out of curiosity, what kind of data is stored in the AppData\Local\Thunderbird folder?

And is there any scenario in which it becomes useful or advisable to back up and restore that folder as well?

The topic says it all really.

I'd love to know if there is a way to do this, perhaps some hidden setting in about:config that I've missed?

The number of times I've dragged and dropped an image (e.g from Chrome or Firefox) into a new e-mail compose window... or used right click "Copy Image" in the browser and then pasted into the compose window... to then find the recipient can't see the image(s) as it's either an image URL that's only accessible on our LAN or it's a URL that won't work without logging into something first... well it happens a lot!

Additionally if someone can confidently tell me it doesn't exist... I'll move on to this being a feature request on the bugtracker.  :)

It is confusing to me about saving emails and folders to my PC from let's say an Outlook mail account. Please excuse my ignorance. I use TB extensively. I also save emails to what I thought was a safe subfolder that I created in the imap listing in TB on my PC. However, I was just reading that this is not safe. One should build a sub-folder in Local folders. Can someone please explain Local folders and how to make sure that emails/folders I safe when I store them. EX: When I or Outlook, delete emails and folders from Outlook acct., it does not affect my PC TB emails. This is greatly appreciated. God Bless

My school recently migrated from Gmail to Office365 email hosting. My access to email through Thunderbird was bricked and I'm trying to get it up and running with the new servers. The school doesn't officially support Thunderbird so there will no be help from that end, but I'm hoping it's possible. The tricky part is the OAuth2 authentication.

The school provided these instructions for setting up Evolution mail client. I was able to get Evolution working successfully by following those steps. The question now is how to do the same in Thunderbird.

I tried following along with these instructions for connecting to an OAuth2 server, substituting the SMTP and IMAP settings given in the Office365 browser client. But trying to download my mail gives the error "The IMAP server outlook.office365.com does not support the selected authentication method. Please change the 'Authentication method' in the 'Account Settings | Server settings'

My guess is that Evolution worked because it let me specify

  1. Host URL
  2. Tenant
  3. Application ID

as shown in the picture.

Is there a way to do the same in Thunderbird?

I used to love and use Firefox exclusively, however it seems that for the past year it's because more like just another corporate giant which locks you into a circular loop leading absolutely nowhere.

I started off today downloading the Thunderbird email client as a replacement for the Windows 10 native email app (which Microsoft has actually conscientiously chosen to NOT include a basic yet necessary feature called "forward AS ATTACHMENT"!) to use with my Microsoft Live.com email account.

It seemed really great, that is until I looked into getting it to work with my contacts and calendar (without simply "importing" them into a local static copy which is yet another thing in my life that I would have to keep track of and update!

I truly hoping that Thunderbird can indeed both access and use my ONLINE contacts AND calendar, so I thought that I would at least ask before I ditch and trash your apps.

If so, please tell me how this can be configured (and why it's NOT easily found - because I DID search your support website BEFORE asking a question). If not, too bad, so sad, sayonara baby!

I have Windows 8.1 latest version. The wifi here has been mostly down so I don't know when this problem actually started. One day it was fine and the next time I could get on everything was gone. I don't know when it updated itself but I sure wish it hadn't.

I am a 72 year old who can do a few things on the computer but I am definitely NOT a tech person and most of the replies on the posts recounting similar problems made my eyes cross and my head spin.

I don't know what to do. PLEASE, I need answers in step by step increments that work. Thank you, Bernadine
