I have just completed transferring Thunderbird from Windows 10 (32 bit) to Windows 11 (64 bit). Running 115 on both machines. The transfer went well but ..... In my profile in the sub folder Mail, I ended up with 3 folders - Local Folders, XXXX.com (XXXX is the incoming sever name) and XXXX-1.com. This happened purely by chance with the XXXX-1 file containing all the data and folders off the old PC and the XXXX containing the emails from my internet provider from the time my old PC had died until the transfer.

I renamed the XXXX-1 file and opened it in Thunderbird - all the emails were there.

Seperately I did the same with the XXXX file - no emails appeared in Thunderbird.

If I click on the XXXX file then click on Inbox and open it with Notepad, I can all the new emails. The XXXX file inbox does not contain any of the old emails.

I have tried everything to open the XXXX file in Thunderbird (incluing renaming and cut/paste) all to no avail. And, of course, the emails were deleted off from my internet provider by Thunderbird when they were downloaded!

Can anyone suggest a way I can retrieve the emails off the XXXX file?

Is it possible to find a way to make Mailing Lists sit at the top of their Address Book by default?

I have looked for an answer but can't seem to find anyone asking this question. I am sure that previous versions (to 102/115) did this naturally but the new versions are different.

For example, in one Address Book I have created a mailing list called Regulars. Previously, all mailing lists show at the top whenever viewing the Address Book, so Regulars would be at the top followed by the first "A" email address. Now, the mailing lists are integrated alphabetically, so that Regulars appears down the list, amongst the "R" emails.

With the contact list now so excessively spread out (yes, I have tried and failed at that unfixable problem), it requires lots of scrolling and searching to find mailing lists. This is illogical, considering the purpose of mailing lists is to make it easy to select a whole group of addresses quickly.

At the moment, I have found a workaround by numbering the list (eg 1. Regulars) but I would prefer to find a way to make the lists behave as they used to. Is that possible?

(I am familiar with userchrome, at a basic level, so I would be able to insert code if necessary).

But we've still got problem with sending and saving emails. Some messages (not always, just in some periods of time), are not sent and not saved in sent messages. We've had this problem yesterday and now I don't know what has been sent and which were not.

Waiting for your reply. Best regards

Hi, My website hosting provider has moved my domain to a different server. Thunderbird allows me to alter mailserver name in account settings but not the server location. It doesn't give any error message when I try to get messages except that I don't receive any messages. Do I need to set up a whole new bunch of email accounts from scratch? I've ticked the box to be emailed when anyone answers but am guessing that I'll have to use webmail to read any. Thanks Allan Thunderbird 115.8.0(64 bit) Windows 10 pro v22H2 32gb Ram

How do I get TB to fetch this folder / re-fetch all folders? Thanks!

I see the lots of info about moving a Profile to another computer or backing it up. That seems fine. However, they all including backing up the email data along with the Profile setup, which I don't want to do (due to email data being so large in many cases).

I see all my email data is in a folder called "ImapMail" within the Profile folder. Is it possible to backup the Profile and just exclude that folder? I mean, if the Profile is transferred to another system, won't the email just be downloaded again? Or will it not work that way?

Hi,

My PGP subkeys are on a Smartcard (Yubikey).

I'm running Thunderbird 115.8.0 (64-bit) on Windows 11 Enterprise (23H2; 22631.3235) with Gpg4win-4.3.0.

I configured an external key ID per Thunderbird:OpenPGP:Smartcards#Allow_the_use_of_external_GnuPG. I've imported my public key into Thunderbird's key manager.

However, when I try to send a digitally signed message, sending fails and the console in Browser Toolbox says "Error: invalid configuration, request to use external GnuPG key, but GPGME isn't working".

The GPGME shared library is installed at path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gpg4win\bin_64\libgpgme-11.dll" and "C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuPG\bin\libgpgme-11.dll". PATH contains "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gpg4win\..\GnuPG\bin".

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Hi,

I was reasonably up to date on Thunderbird, but just today (March 1) I've started getting this: "Thunderbird.app is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash. This file was downloaded on an unknown date." I'm attaching a screen capture. If I keep hitting "Cancel" about half a dozen times, the little panel stops. But it soon starts up again.

So I updated to 115.8.0 (Mac), but it didn't help. Will I lose my email files if I delete Thunderbird.app and re-install? (I'll make a copy of my Profile in any case.)

Do let me know, as that "?" item in the upper right corner of the panel is less than enlightening.

Thanks!
