Hello Mozilla Thunderbird forum, I have a Thunderbird latest release installation that fetches mails in 2 different ways with the same imap.orange.fr server and settings. The 1st account works as pop protocol: that means that messages are loaded locally, deleted from the server ; and no mail subfolders are present in the Thunderbird interface. The 2nd account synchronizes the mails and all remote subfolders in the local interface. To me, the 1st account is working weirdly. But I can't understand the reason of that. Have you some idea about that? with the best regards, Bernard (from France, sorry for the bad language ;-))

Hiya

I have 2 out of 5 mail accounts were the trash-folders are less than 30 Mb according to Thunderbird - [right mouse click] on the folders & pick [properties]

BUT on the disk inside the [ImapMail] folder I have files named [Trash] that for the 2 accounts have a combined total size of 600 Mb ! :(

And YES !!! I let Thunderbird compact per auto ALL the time (when it will save = 10 Mb in total)


So either; - I've COMPLETELY misunderstood 'something' - or there's something to look into for Mozilla ? :)

I am running 4 email addresses (3 hotmail.com and 1 live.com) on TB 102.15.1 (64 bit) - Windows 10. About a month ago I upgraded TB was unable to send anything no matter what Server settings I used - tried every combination - so I downgraded back to Version 102 and everything went back to normal. About a week ago, one of my hotmail accounts started giving me a "fail to log in" message. The other accounts work fine. The "fail to log in" will go from 2 or 3 times to 15 to 20 times in about an hour or so but every time, sooner or later will work and then it will be fine for a few hours and then start again. I have had these accounts running on TB for well over 10 years with no problem and I have not changed anything in the Server settings or anywhere else. The account I am having the issue with has been running on TB since TB started with no problems until now. I assume that TB may be having some issues with the Outlook platform but I have not changed anything there either and I have no problem logging into hotmail.com directly. I have spent many hours combing the internet for hints to no avail - everything I have tried has either had no effect or screwed things up so I had to back track to where I started. Any ideas???

So I was forced to migrate from Eudora to Thunderbird and lost half my emails in the process (10 years worth). It's all corrupted when I open them. Okay, learned to live with it.

Then recently I had to change drive number on some of my hard disks. When I rebooted Thunderbird was empty as if I just had installed it.

I know one way to solve it is to go through the pain of re-configuring everything from scratch and locate the old mail folders, and tweak the program as I want it, etc.

But... is it not possible to edit the registry by only changing the drive letter so that it becomes exactly like before?

OR:

Without messing with the registry, is there somewhere I can change the location of where it reads the data to know the configurations, mail setting, mail folders, etc, so that it becomes like before?

I use Windows 7 by the way (yes I know, but I'm tweaking and maintaining it with stuff like Optach, it works like a charm).

I'm getting desperate as there's important emails pending, so I defer to the online oracle!

3 months ago I was on version 115.3.1 and asked a question about the safety of 115 updates. I received the following answer from sfhowes: If you're already on 115, you shouldn't have any issues with further updates to the 115 branch, as some, but not all, problems are fixed with each 115 release. The time to hesitate is when the annual major release is offered around June/July. Wait a few months for the major bugs to be fixed, or run two versions side-by-side.

I continued to update to further 115 releases but, because of the many apparent user issues, I stopped updating at version 115.5.1. The latest release is now 115.8.0. Can anyone guarantee 'no issues' if I now permit this release to be installed ... I have no problems using 115.5.1 but perhaps this is now a security risk?

Hello,

I am setting up PGP in Thunderbird. Sometimes I want to send an email which is signed but not encrypted. However, before I send this to someone else I want to make sure that it works. So I sent an email to myself (2 different accounts which I both control and have added to Thunderbird). The email has the signature attached but the Thunderbird UX doesn't give me any information about whether or not it successfully verified the signature. I tried downloading the `.eml` file and checking the signature against that, but it failed (I'm assuming that I tried to verify the wrong thing, not that the signature is actually bad).

Any help would be appreciated.

Lately I have been getting a lot of spam and have identified all coming into my inbox as spam. Now many are automatically moved to junk mail box and that is a good thing. Unfortunately it also seems to be slowing Thunderbird down. I am afraid that many of the "Filters" generated may be duplicated. Is it possible to see them and maybe edit them to reduce the impact on my system?

Dear friends,

until now, the displaying of individual attachments (photos - jpg, png...) was automatically adapted to the width of the given window when viewed directly in the message.

However, after the penultimate update, the attachments (photos - jpg, png...) no longer fit the width of the given window and are enlarged so that I can only see a part of them. If I want to see the whole photo, I have to open it in an external program by double-clicking it.

Today I updated to the latest version - 115.6.1 - and the problem persists.

Is it possible to influence it somehow or set it somewhere?

thank you very much in advance for your time

And I was able to set up another Gmail account on Thunderbird in this new laptop (so the version of Mozilla is not the culprit) with the same server settings (port for incoming and outgoing mails, authentication methods SL/TLS, O Auth2 etc).

Hi! I'm about to get a new computer and I need to understand the best way to move Thunderbird with all my emails to the new computer.

Should I just install Thunderbird in the new computer and then add my e-mail accounts from scratch? Or is it better to find this profile folder, copy and paste it to the profile folder on the new computer? Which way is best? I run mac OS 12.7.3 on the old computer and will update to a new Mac Book Pro computer with the lates OS. The Thunderbird-version is now 115.8.0 in the old computer.

I just switched to Thunderbird (115.8.0 - 64 Bit) from Outlook 365. Solved a bunch of headaches, created a bunch more.

To make a long story short... - I have two email addresses. One is a Gmail address. The other is an email address hosted by our website company. (ARI/Dealerspike) - When using Thunderbird to view received emails for my ARI/Dealerspike email address, photo's are not displaying / getting replaced with random gibberish text and the whole email appears to be converted to plain text. The photo / plain text issue doesn't happen for my gmail email address when I view them in Thunderbird. Only the ARI/Dealerspike email addresses have the issue. Can't figure out why?

Other observations: - The email displays correctly if I open it in our email service providers web-based email portal. - The email displays correctly if I open it in Outlook 365. - When I send emails to myself in Thunderbird (to the ARI/Dealerspike email) with photos and custom font, it all looks normal when I open the email.

I've tried all the basic settings like View-Original HTML, View-Display Attachments Inline, Settings-Privacy-Allow Remote Content. No difference. I've also tried changing some setttings-config editor settings as recommended in other forums which hasn't helped.

About ready to give up and try another email client, before I do maybe someone has a solution.

I'm having a problem with TB V115.3.3 AFTER using troubleshoot mode (See "Thunderbird V115.3.3 - problems with portableapps after troubleshoot mode"). Problems posting to that question forced me to start a new question.

Anyway, I put my TB portable folder and email folder (separate from TB) on a thumbdrive and ran it on one of my other computers - EVERYTHING WORKED. I then ran TB from the thumbdrive on my primary computer (where I have the problems) and had the same problems (Settings don't work, hamburger menu doesn't work, no calendar, profile manager does not work, etc).

There are 1 or more files on my harddrive that are causing this problem! This/these files had to have been written when I used troubleshoot mode.

Where can I look for the file(s) causing the problem?

[ThunderbirdPortableSettings] AgreedToLicense=YES LastProfileDirectory=D:\ThunderbirdPortable\Data\profile

NEW QUESTION:  When I select "Restart In Troubleshoot Mode" what is written to the hard drive to tell TB to start in ts mode?

I CANNOT POST A REPLY - Keep getting An Error Occurred.

Hello, We have recently migrated from Exchange 2013 to Exchange Online. When the setting "Never send return receipt" is set, the return receipt is always sent as soon as the client downloads the mail. If the setting is set to "ask", the return receipt is not sent even if I open the mail. However, if I select the "Ignore" button, the return receipt is sent. All the articles I have found on this issue are 14 years old and refer to Exchange 2007, but in Exchange 2013 it was fine. Only in Exchange Online this behavior started. Outlook does not have this issue. Is there anything I can do about it?

I've had long conversations with Apple regarding the setup of iCloud email accounts on Thunderbird. The process must include the generation of an App Specific Password using Apples web page :

https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage

This generates a password in the form aaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd which is a different password to be used only with one Windows APP. Apple insists this is working with their standard mail server settings preset by all the email client providers. I've been advised to refer to Mozilla Thunderbird and Apple are insistent they can do no more than mail me links to all the instructions I've already read in detail several times. However, I believe the problem lies with Apple but they don't yet know it. I've used separate ASP generated passwords and tried to install an iCloud email on several different email clients: Thunderbird, Mailbird, Outlook and Postbox. All these confirm that the settings seem to be valid but nonetheless the email account fails to load with error messages suggesting the configuration or password (i.e. the ASP) is wrong. The common factor is Apple not Thunderbird. I suggest anyone flummoxed by this awaits the acceptance of this problem by Apple.
