My computer crashed and when I launched Thunderbird it came up with opening screen (Set up an existing account). I'm hoping the data and setting are still there. Is there a way to bypass the new account and get to old email?

Or since I'm setting up a new computer can I just follow directions in "Moving Thunderbird to a New Computer"?

After receiving a message that contains a mailing list account, when replying to the message, the mailing list account is included in the reply destination, not with Return-to or Sender. Why is this? And, Is there any measures how can eliminate it? If you have any ideas, please let me know your knowledges. Thank you for your help in advance.

'I already wrote but should say I'm on MAC not pc...'

I recently changed all my pop to imap.. It's been a disaster...I was not able to send or receive from any of my 3 computers after the change. It took me days of all my possible help "passing the buck" "not our end": a)my spam protection people, b)internet provider c)email domain hosts (2 of them- just for fun)

And, of course, the no tech support Thunderbird (fun part of the equation).... there is also a password problem somehow which I bypassed smtp finally using port 25 and 2525 unsecured...

and I now can send and receive...WOW.

I'm pretty much an expert after a full week of 8-12 hour days... This all happened because I was getting occasional failure to send bounce backs...thought I'd fix it...

Anyway current problems are: 1) working with our spam protector tech transitioning from my very happy pop life to imap: ALL my message folders (15 years worth of business email) in one box were deleted..

2)In my other domain all my message they seem to be there but are greyed out, labeled "IN BOX bla bla..."

Is it possible to recover these and how? I've looked in "Profile Folder" "Show in Finder" and some seem to be there... how can I pull out these folders and sub folders that I depend on for my work?

Is there anyone to help me??? Thank you.

I do not want to erase my emails that go back several years. Someone from the Community advised me to not use thumbdrive, so I bought an external hd. I have read others' problems and I do not want to create problems. But my laptop is running out of room. Can I store local folders on the external hd to free up space on my laptop's hd? If I move EVERYTHING to the external, will Thunderbird still be on my laptop? I sort of need walk-through help because I am not familiar with doing computer things.

Starting with 68.4.2 I've been seeing this weird behavior for received messages. For some messages the content is not displayed when I try to read the message - the reading pane body portion is blank. If I "Reply To Sender" then the message content appears so obviously it's not a case of Thunderbird not being able to interpret the message. Also if I save the message as an eml it saves correctly. So why can't Thunderbird display it on reading, but it display ok on "Reply To Sender"? My font settings are attached.

I followed all steps to copy Thunderbird profiles successfully to a new Thunderbird downloaded on a new computer. All email accounts, old settings, and folders (very large, 16.9g) are all in the left pane after I launched the new Thunderbird.

However, many folders in Chinese characters are duplicate, and do not show anything inside the folders. I have transferred the profiles to a new computer many times in the past 10 years, and I have been always successful without any problem using the same method to transfer from one computer Thunderbird to a new computer Thunderbird. But, this is the first time I encounter this problem - duplicate folders than contain nothing inside. I first downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird (68.10). It happened. Then, I thought I should try an older version (60), which is my old computer using Thunderbird 6.0. But it has the same duplicate folders that contains nothing or do not show up anything inside.

I searched in the support articles and discussions on Thunderbird. I tried to delete all MSF files in the folders, which took a long time to do, and restarted the Thunderbird. But, it still does not work. I tried to delete the duplicate folders, in many ways, but it did not allow me to delete. When I click on any folder in Chinese characters, it just has no response, blank in the folders, and it shows no files previously saved. But, if I click on the folders in English, they are working, and all messages saved show up.

I need all those folders which I saved for over 20 years on my teaching and research position. I have been perplexed and frustrated as I have tried to remove and reinstall Thunderbird and transfer data over 10 times in the past few days, spent days by days on this task without finding a solution. I think the only way now is to find an expert who knows the Thunderbird well to help me. I am even willing and happy to pay the service and work provided by any Thunderbird expert, so I can resolve the problem to get these folders work. All folders and sub-folders inside contain a lot of messages.

The strange thing that has puzzled me is that all folders and sub-folders in English work fine, and has messages, but those folders and sub-folders in Chinese language are all duplicate and contain no message inside. Please see the pictures attached for your reference. Can anyone kindly help me? Please do email me and alert me when someone would kindly offer help, and email me: sguo@sfsu.edu Thanks very much!

Windows 10. I had a power failure today and when the machine came back up, I was at the "create new account" screen for thunderbird.

EVERY SINGLE EMAIL ACCOUNT was blown away. Oh yes, All the key files and mail data itself was still there but NO access to it.

So after much googling and reading some of the most stupidest answers on here I had no choice but to recreate EVERY account and then move the message files into the newly created -1 folders in the VERY SAME PROFILE folder when all the original stuff lived.

How can this be? How is it possible that a hard crash can be so detrimental to a very old and well established format known as email?

This was never an issue but the last 3 months all emails from a particular sending keep getting sent to spam. I have added the sender to my contact list. I keep marking the emails as "not junk" while they're in the spam folder and they get moved into the "inbox" but the next one that comes in goes straight to spam. What else can I do to get them to stop going into spam? I would think that after 3 months the adaptive system would have learned to adapt.

My old computer has died and I've got a new one, installed Ubuntu and Thunderbird. I need to get the contacts into the new Thunderbird profile but don't have access to an exported file, only the two .mab files. I know has been asked before, and I've tried following some of the advice but It's not working for me:

  • I tried pasting in the history.mab and abook.mab and restarting Thunderbird but none of the contacts appeared.
  • Advice to use MoreFunctionsForAddressBook add-on appears to be outdated.

Is there a way to configure multiple addressbook files and thus add (say) history-1.mab and abook1.mab (the files from my backup) to the new default ones?

Hello,

Recently migrated to new Mac laptop (MacOS 10.15.2). Installed latest Thunderbird (68.9.0).

Sometimes Thunderbird hangs, and I need to restart. On restart, it asks for account name, rebuilds folders, and creates new (empty) address books.

Related question. Should I delete all the xxxxxxx.default-release-x folders except the latest one?

Thank you,

HI, I have recently bought a new computer and as part of the changes I have decided to ditch my previous Microsoft packages as I do not wish to pay for Office 365.

Part of this change has meant exporting my emails and Calendar from my long serving Outlook 2007 and I have decided to use Mozilla Thunderbird for both of these functions.

The emails section is now working ok but I am having issues with both Calendar and Contacts.

I followed guidance for exporting the Calendar from Outlook 2007 and importing it to Thunderbird. The individual Diary/Events do appear in Thunderbird but there are no details included in the entry. The Event simply has the start and end time and the title "Busy".

I am not sure whether my error is in the exporting from Outlook 2007, the importing to Thunderbird or something else?

Hopefully you can give me some guidance to resolve as I really need my diary to function effectively. Thanks
