Just installed Thunderbird v91.2 and it seems to have nuked my display colors. Before I had the colors set up for the Write display window, the message display, and everything else. Now, everything's white. Preferences has no Display tab with which to set colors, a couplke of settings I found that control some color options do nothing, I've tried the Advanced Preferences and found one browser display set to #000000 and so set it to something else but that does not display and after a reboot that setting is still back to #000000 again. It seems as Thudnerbird has made it increasingly impossible to get its display to look like what i want. In color. The colors that I want. Themes are useless because there's only LIght and Dark now. Is there some sacrifice I have to make to the elder gods or something? I even tried backing up a couple of revisions but the colors are still gone (and I just had them 2 days ago), which tells me that maybe some preferences file got overwritten?

My Thunderbird program just updated to 92.2.0. The "New in Thunderbird" page just came up in my browser and it says the following:

"Whether you are using it on a large desktop monitor or a small laptop touchscreen, you may want the icons and text of the interface to be larger and more spread out or very compact. In Thunderbird 91, under View -> Density in the menu, you can select the UI density for the entire application. Three options are available: compact (small), normal(medium), and touch(large)."

However, when I try changing the "Density" setting, the only thing that happens is that more blank space is added between the lines in the menu bar. The font and icons are the same size. I'm used to this view after using Thunderbird for 2 2/1 years, so this is not a big deal; but I thought it would be nice if the font was a bit larger. I can see where the extra space would be helpful for people using touch-screen devices. However, the feature does not enlarge the font like the explanation promises.

When I select "Do this automatically for files like this from now on", I still get prompted the next time with the same message.

The file type and action are specified, but I still get prompted each time I try to open an attachment.

This seems like a simple bg to fix.

I have created all the filters I need in my Thunderbird email account. When a new email comes in I don't know any are there when I look at my folders because none are highlighted. I have to manually click on each folder to see if there are any new emails in there. Usually there are and if I hadn't manually opened each and every one I wouldn't know they were there. How do you get a new email to show up in the corresponding folder it arrives in after being filtered? Anything that ISN'T filtered and shows up in my INBOX does show up and is highlighted.

Is it because the folders were imported from Outlook rather than being created in Thunderbird? This is the only reason I can think of.

No New Messages Despite Messages on SMTP server I host on my LAN

I noticed I wasn't getting emails today. So I checked mail, no new messages. I use a combination of a forward MX that will store and forward mail to my SMTP server behind a VPN for when my SMTP server is unavailable.

I control both client and server. This is the first time where the VPN itself is working fine and my mail forwarder is delivering just fine to my SMTP server.

The problem is... Thunderbird says 'no new messages on server' which proves that authentication works just fine. I can look on the server, tail my mail file and see new messages that are not in Thunderbird. And yet, despite sending myself new mail, thunderbird just dumbly comes back with 'no new messages on server.'

I do have leave messages on server ticked, fwiw; however, I've only had issues when the upstream mail isn't being delivered to my SMTP server.

I've tried an older solution, moving the mail index file; however, that didn't do the trick (did rebuild the index, but didn't trigger download of new messages). Nothing has changed. I even fired up my Desktop and tried downloading mail there despite needing to merge inboxes and it did the same thing... no new messages. I ended up upgrading Thunderbird from 78 (which was working fine the last few days, btw) to whatever version it is now (91? 92?).

I do not have a webmail ui to try to find a malformed message (and I'm sure that message is long passed as, unfortunately, I have a 2gb+ mail file at this point in /var, long story). I may be able to pinpoint it based on the actual dates when the last email was received in my inbox (and combing thru the 2gb+ server's mail file).

It's vital that my mail client can actually download email. I have no idea why it's not working; also tried tls.min 1 and tls.min 0 as well as enable legacy flags in options to no avail just in case.

HELP! I've used Thunderbird for a long time (since 2006, maybe earlier) but this is the first time I have ever had a client-related problem downloading over pop3. I use courier as my pop server and purposefully do not advertise or listen (or port forward) on the internet. So it's just local LAN traffic or via ssh tunnel/port forwarding.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

It seems like perhaps Tbird is confused as to what it last downloaded and is now not triggering new mail pulls. IT could, naturally, be something on the mail server regarding the inbox there. I don't really use any other accounts, but I suppose I could try setting a test up.

I can send mail just fine via the same SMTP server that receives mail for the client, so it appears mostly isolated to pop/thunderbird.

Hoping someone here knows what to do to get it to try to pull mail again.

Hi. Has anyone noticed that the password you can set within the program doesn't actually do anything to stop someone from reading the e-mails? I noticed this by just clicking "x" to exit the notification of having to enter the password. After pressing "x" 3 times, it didn't ask me again and I can freely look around all the e-mails I have stored.

Is that supposed to happen? I'd rather if the password stopped anyone from being unable to read the e-mails stored. Isn't that the idea of having a password on the program?

Kind regards,

I have 2 accounts on Thunderbird that lost their servers. There was a hosting service that don't exist anymore, so I only have locally stored emails in Inbox for those 2 accounts. Because of this I keep getting error messages like "Unable to connect to server ....". I would like to keep all the emails I have from this accounts but to delete the accounts so that Thunderbird can stop trying to connect to unexciting server and I have Cleaner Inbox list.

I tried selecting all emails from Inbox in one of accounts and archive it but the Archive button don't do anything.

Any idea how to solve this?

The latest version of Thunderbird (91.1.2 (64-bit)) installed yesterday. Before the installation I was able to send emails on all my accounts. After the installation I cannot send emails on any of the accounts.

When I reply to an email, the send button is greyed out. When I make a new email and click on send nothing happens. I can still receive emails. There are no messages that I am doing anything wrong.

I have four separate accounts, each with their own SMTP server. Send doesn't work on any of them. My OS is Windows 10 and is up to date. My antivirus is McAfee LiveSafe (16.0) and it is up to date.

The "Print Preview" feature in the main menu is NOT the same as, frankly it doesn't work, shows nothing on most emails and doesn't expose the senders email address and reply-to address

This is basically a carte-blanche invitation to phishers to con people into opening emails or embedded links blindly

It can't stay installed om my MacOS and just work, everytime I need to upgrade it's a new install ... and here the problems start because now it starts as if I don't have any profiles and creates new ones every time I load the programme.

I just want a working emailsystem with all my old emails ... easy upgradeable and easy to start. And not having to do a complete recovery process each time.

I am using Thunderbird version 91.1.1 that I just installed on a new MacBook Pro. I have used Thunderbird for some time now, and have a Saved Search folder that I have set up previously. Today when I went to set up the Saved Search folder, the dialog gets locked up in a state where the only thing I can do is quit Thunderbird from the Menu (see attached image for the state it's stuck in). I have isolated it to specifically when I select folders in the dialog ... I was able to create the saved search folder by not changing the search folder selection, but if I go into that dialog when I exit it after making a selection it gets into this locked up state. I assume it is a bug, unless it's waiting on me to do something (which I cannot figure out what that might be?)
