Hello everyone,

I would be grateful if anyone could offer a solution.

I use Thunderbird Version 91.9.1 on a Windows 10 PC. I am in England UK. I have several gmail, outlook and gmx email accounts, which i use in one desktop client for convenience. It used to be MS Outlook, but now I am using Thunderbird. All my emails are setup as as IMAP.

In my email accounts I have many folders, and there are some messages which I need to update regularly. I originally created these messages in 'drafts' in MS Outlook and then moved them to their different folders where i can edit them. MS Outlook allows you to edit messages in IMAP folders, i.e. you can treat them as 'drafts' as long as you created the message.

In Thunderbird, my IMAP messages which I can usually edit in MS Outlook, are not available to 'edit'. They open as templates.

How can i change this? How can I continue doing this in Thunderbird? I don't mind setting all my messages as 'drafts' if there is only one setting.

I don't want to contemplate the other option of moving the message to the draft folder to edit and then move it back. That would be very inconveniet as i have many emails, each with different folders. In a nutshell, I want to be able to edit messages in my IMAP folders, the messages I have created myself.

Any advice welcomed and I thank you in advance.

I have 4 e-mail addresses and corresponding inboxes. One is my personal addy that I use for most legitimate business. The other 3 are leftovers from former businesses and a spam addy. I use those other 3 addys sparingly, but only for sites I want to maintain distance from, and any I suspect might be spammers.

Thunderbird has worked wonderfully for me for some years, but recently, I have been getting duplicate messages in 2 of my 3 dummy accounts for every one that is legitimately sent to my main account. None ever show up in that 4th account, but I did just receive an e-mail that was intended for that 4th account, and the inbox acted as it should (no duplicates anywhere).

I have spent a couple of hours with a very dedicated service rep from my ISP, and she was unable to find any solution. She suggests that reaching out to Firefox is the next logical step.

Sorry for posting this here but no response in TB forum. After I installed the latest up grade TB 115 I have lost all the old emails in my inbox, sent, and trash as well as the ability to use TB as I can't sign in. I get the following prompt when trying to use my account. "Sending of password for user ****@att.net did not succeed. Mail server inbound.att.net responded: [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later", and then a prompt to "Enter your password" which does not work, although the pass word shows up in"passwords". The TB account works fine in the Yahoo web account, but I don't keep anything there on a daily basis. The web TB account lets me send and receive mail normally. I haven't changed my configuration ,password or uninstalled TB. My G mail works normally. My android cell also won't let me sign in and asks for credentials per password which is unrecognized.

I'm getting the following message when trying to delete multiple messages at a time. Sometimes it actually puts them in the trash folder but doesn't remove from Inbox. I've emptied the trash & did a compact folder. Still have problem.

The messages could not be moved or copied to folder 'Trash on cindyr@neo.rr.com' because writing to folder failed. To gain disk space, from the File menu, first choose Empty Trash, and then choose Compact Folders, and then try again.

I cannot see the Trash folder in one of my imap accounts. I have tried all the tips and suggestions I have been able to find using google searches, but none of them allow me to see the Trash folder.

I can see the Trash folder when I access the account with Firefox. The account runs on Google mail but appears as an account at my university. I also have a straight google mail account and I can see the trash folder in that account--in that account Trash and other folders (e.g., spam,sent) appear as subfolders of [Gmail]. This means I'm able to recover items in the Trash folder only by logging into the account using Firefox.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Somehow the System Draft folder is sitting in a subfolder on my account. I've tried everything to move it without any luck. I need to move it back where it belongs so I can delete the subfolder.

I tried following the instructions given by Toad-Hall on 9/20/22 but I don't even see the other system folders where they are supposed to be (inside the ImapMail folder).

I've tried uninstalling Thunderbird and reinstalling it, but that didn't help. I have no idea how this system folder got into a regular subfolder and it's driving me nuts!

Any suggestions on how to move this folder back where it belongs?

Thank you, cachadd

Hi

Why does Thunderbird want all my personal information.......??

I'd be MORE THAN happy to make a donation to support you guys, but I am NOT happy about all the info I have to provide - and frankly I'm bot going to be bullied into giving info I don't want to. I donate to Wikipedia and they don't ask such intrusive questions - so why do you? You say that less than 2% of TB users donate - this PROBABLY the reason why they don't...!

And the fact that there is no direct link to ask somebody ask question about this subject, is really frustrating.

Thanks

I find that when I click on links to take me to website through my email in Thunderbird that I will get an error message that reads "we could not verify the certificate, reason=wronghost"

But, if I copy link and copy into browser it works fine. There is a break in the Thunderbird email to the browser. This does not happen with all links but there are about three or four that I get regularly where it fails.

I have talked to a tech guy and we have tried different things and it always comes back to a break in Thunderbird email.

How do I fix this problem?

Thank you, Monica
