I have 68.6.0 on my Mac and could not update because there was a problem in the software on the following versions that did not allow and update on Mac's.

If I down load 78.3.2 how do I get all of my emails, folders and address book on this version from my existing version?

I have tried down loading it but the set-up is terrible and convoluted. I have tried keeping my profile and inserting that, but compared to earlier versions of Thundebird the set up is completely unintuitive and what ever you click on does nothing.

In years gone by, you simply removed the new profile and inserted the old one in Finder>Go>Library>Thunderbird> Profile and everything was there. Now it's a mess.

Greetings,

Profile Switcher is incompatible with Thunderbird 78.4.0. (see attached image)

What can I use as an alternative to access many various accounts???

This seems to be the big issues with TB--> add-on compatibility after updates....

I am worried that x-notes will also not be compatible but I have yet to gain access to that profile to estimate the damage control yet....(oh just got that answer - see 2nd screen shot) - it it not YET compatible....

I have a pop server email address and need to bring in new emails from an Office 365 email address using Thunderbird on Windows 10. Both email addresses are identical. The current pop server email address has many folders and subfolders with emails in them. I'm told that when I bring in the new emails, it will delete the current emails. Current setting attached. It is 1 of 3 email addresses I have set up in Thunderbird. Thank you for your help!

I have several email accounts based on projects and areas of interest: Genealogy, etc.

I would like to set up a filter to apply globally to every account. For example, Subject is Civil War, or message contains Civil War.

But, I have some emails in a genealogy account and others in a generic household account that pertain to questions from various authors.

How can I create one filter to encompass all of my accounts?

Thank you,

Hi,

I have had this problem for a long time. I have several Gmail accounts I connect to with Thunderbird via IMAP. In general, things are working, I can list my inbox, read and reply to mail and delete mail.

But when I attempt to delete multiple messages quickly, I eventually see a an "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com" dialog pop up.

If I let Thunderbird sit for a little while, it will all clear itself up, and the messages eventually get deleted.

I have tried enabling IMAP logging with TB but did not see anything very useful.

I deleted some old non OAUTH2 saved passwords but that didn't appear to help either.

I am looking for advice or suggestions on what I can do?

Thanks...

Yesterday (10/22/2020) I received an update from Thunderbird. Once it installed, I was suddenly no longer able to receive email. I kept getting "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.server". I didn't change any settings after the update. I wish I could go back to the previous version.

I know I can access my emails through mail.google.com, but of course, Thunderbird is more efficient to use.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I had upgraded to version 78 and suddenly wasn't able to receive any email. Upon investigation, it turned out that my email provider's server is still on TLS 1.0 and 78 no longer supports that. My email provider indicates they probably won't be upgrading until sometime next year and I can't easily switch email accounts -- I've been using this email account for 30 years and every account I've set up on the web (and there are dozens of those) is based on it. So, I went through the painful process of downgrading back to version 68.

The downgrade has been working fine until today. I rebooted my machine to install some Windows updates and after the reboot, I'm back on version 78 and my contacts address book is gone.

I don't know what to do. I don't know why this happened. I could try to go through the whole painful downgrade process again but if it is just going to reverse itself again that's not very attractive.

Do I need to find another email client? Because I really liked Thunderbird up until now.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

The developers are killing TB. They don't care about users or add-on developers. They said recently that this sort of problem was unavoidable as they were making a major update (around version 60 something) but it happens every single time.

Without add-ons, TB is just very average. It's the add-ons that make it great but they are too thick to understand that.

When I opened Thunderbird just now, there was a message at the top center of my screen pertaining to an issue that I did not fully understand. I should have taken a screen shot, apparently. As soon as I clicked on the application, the message went away.

This message may have pertained to my email server. But I am not sure.

Is there a way to get this message to appear again? Closing and reopening Thunderbird did not elicit a repeat of the warning message.

I am using 68.10.0(64bit) on Ubuntu 18.04.

I have several Thunderbird Address Books, and wish to print some of them out on paper. On the address book screen, the names are listed Last Name first, in alphabetical order. But the Print Preview (and the Print) list them Last Name first (as it should), but alphabetizes the list according to First Name!! Example: Reynolds, Audrey is the first name on the printout, and Abernathy, Zack is the LAST name on the list.

I'm running the very latest version of Thunderbird on a Win7 Ultimate laptop, and am a looong-time user of Thunderbird. I've printed out lots of Address Books, and don't remember this problem in the past.

UPDATE: THE SAME VERSION OF T-BIRD RUNNING ON MY WIFE'S Win7 LAPTOP ALPHABETIZES PRINTOUTS PROPERLY!! As far as I can tell, the Options in her T-Bird are set the same as mine.

Please advise. engrollie

BTW: the Help search engine is tedious and unproductive. It searches for all messages that contain ANY of multiple search words. There should be an option to specify that the results must include only messages that contain ALL of the search words. Thanks

I hoped to solve the problem, but now I cannot install Thunderbird, because the install program is corrupt. It says 'extraction failed. file is corrupt.' I think I did something wrong, but what to do? There are a few files I cannot open and there are 4 shortcuts which I cannot delete. W10 don't give me acces or refuses to obey my orders..

I've successfully used Send Later many times before. (Have used Thunderbird for years.) Now, when I compose a message and click on Send Later, the usual screen when one sets up the time, no longer opens. The message goes straight to Outbox that now is located under Local Folders. ( Very different than before.) I can see my message there, open it, and the timestamp is the time when I clicked on Send Later. Still no way to set up the time for sending.

I can see Send Unsent Messages under Files, but again, there is nothing to set up the desirable time for the sending option.

I'm afraid something got messed up in recent updates.

Please help. Thank you.
