On one device, I've added some contacts but these don't show up when I log into my other machine?

Is there a setting I can tweak to allow this or some other method?

After a monster update on Win 10 it uninstalled Thunderbird. After I reinstalled I find that I lost all local folders except junk, trash, and outbox. This is odd since my inbox reinstated undeleted email dating back to 2018. So I look thru Thunderbird support questions and can only find answers that predating TB v. 78.9.0 (64-bit). If you have an answer for me please be specific e.g. " go to help tab, click on troubleshooting" etc. if you get my drift.

If you want to feel sorry for me that's ok. I lost all bank/IRS stuff, genealogy correspondence, program warranties, and when I think about it I just want to sit down and snivel.

BTW it also ate my address book, but I can only deal with one thing at a time.

Please help, Peggy

TB 78.9.* filters do not work reliably at all

I have 2 filters set up to work manually and automatically on the inbox, which are meant to sort phone log messages on answered and missed calls into two phone number related folders.

The filter structure is simple, it first checks if the email originates from the phone call logger service, then checks if the message contains a small text snipped saying that it is a phone call and not a voice message and then it checks for the presence of the respective phone number. The action then is to move the message to its respective folder.

These filters work *sometimes* on *some* messages, but completely hit and miss and this is the same for automatic vs. manual execution.

If I copy and simplify any given filter for troubleshooting, e.g. changing the "move to folder" action to a simple "add key word", then the filter will work when executed manually, but only a few times and then it will stop working again without any logic to what made it stop, e.g. adding a too complex text snippet or something. It simply stops working where is worked just a second ago.

This is a complete hash and I have no idea what is going on. Elsewhere I read about inbox and thus search structure size and have cleaned the inbox (separate mail account only for phone log messages, ~100 messages only) to contain only a few messages, but to no avail. I also read ideas about base64 and utf-8 being at the core of filters not searching/finding text in messages, but since the filters do work (sometimes), I would have to assume that TB itself changes the text coding at some time after message receipt, which seems pretty far fetched.

I see on the web that many people have problems with sketchy filter execution in TB and I also saw people saying that some of these issues are long standing and that filters are sort of "orphaned" in TB development, but surely ~some~ developers must be working on filters and their bugs, so there must be someone checking execution and stability before any major release, right?

The example link shown in this example - if copied with right click copy link address https://www.xing.com/m/isPtrKquG42_4Eor4UC3AA opens fine in any browser.

Any other link in any other Mail words fine- its just the XING Newslettters where this failure happens.

I have long been an enthusiastic user of thunderbird with "virtual identity". I kept Thunderbird 68 until few days ago. I had the stupid idea of ​​updating and now I am in trouble. Many of the virtual identity features are not yet present in Thunderbird 78.

For those who like me use tons of aliases (to avoid SPAM), virtual identity is indispensable especially in the functionality of automatically choosing the sender according to the recipient. Will it ever be possible to have this function in the core?

Another very useful extension allowed me to choose the smtp server. Thunderbird now allows you to choose an email address with "From ...", but I cannot choose the SMTP configuration to use. When can it will be integrate in the core of Thunderbird?

It's possible to downgrade from T78 to T68 again? What happens with openpgp configuration?

TNX in advance. Ilic

I have set up filters in gmail to assign labels to emails and skip the inbox. I have then set up IMAP access in Thunderbird, where these labels translate to folders. New messages do not show up in these folders reliably until I open them in the folder tree.

I have tried ticking "When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder" in the folder properties, which doesn't seem to help at all, and have set mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new to true, which appears to have made the problem occur less frequently, but hasn't fixed it completely. I estimate that a single-digit percentage of new mail still isn't downloaded until I check manually.

This appears to be the same problem as reported here, but the suggested solution doesn't work for me.

Thunderbird 78.9.0 installed, but it happened also with some previous release (I don't remember the last one, but I install always when the announce for a new release arrives). Five different tests sending a mail to myself. Test 1: from Thunderbird I write a text (meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr), I select it and then I click on "Insert" and after on "Link", I copy the same txt as link to be connected. I receive a mail with only "meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr" as plain text, not colored Test 2: again from Thunderbird, without writing any text, I select "Insert" and then "Link" and then I insert the same text (meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr) as text and as link. I recevie a mail with "meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr <meet.google.com/haq-ahqt-bfr>" Test 3: I write a mail from gmail web inserting the same text and link as above: I receive a correct mai with an operating link. Test 4 and 5, as test 1 and 2, but as text ai write a word, not the link itself. In both cases I receive a mail with the word colored and clicking with the right button I can copy the link, but there is not the open link choice. Thanks. Claudio

After we changed a provider of our e-mail box we have a problem with sending e-mails. Thunderbird frequently displays the error "Sending the message has failed because the connection to the server has timed out", The error is displayed more often when replying to messages, and less often when sending a new message. The error is displayed regardless of whether the message has an attachment or not. We tried to change the wait time from the default value of 100 to 140. We also tried to change the minimum TLS version. Configuration is carried out as recommended by the provider. Other e-mail programs are sending correctly. We contact with our provider they say that everything is ok on their side. Thunderbird is updated to latest version, windows version from 2004 to 20h2, we are using the ESET endpoint security version 8.0.2028.0. We generated new eset certificates for thundebird but that did not solve the problem, also we tried to disable/uninstall our antivirus and add thundebird to the exceptions in both the antivirus and our firewall. Uninstalling thunderbird, deleting all folders, and then reinstalling and configuring does not work.

Antivirus : ESET Endpoint Security version 8.0.2028.0 Mail provider: idhosting.pl smtp username is the full name of the email address for example xyz@biblioteka.jaw.pl

I have installed Thunderbird to a laptop I have on longterm loan.

1. I can't find how to log out of the account. Even though I have removed the password, when I open TB all my emails are accessible. There is a pop up window asking for a password, but it can be closed, and all the emails remain accessible. I am not able to set up a different Windows user account because of protocols set up on the laptop. How can I log out when I've finished accessing TB?

2. I have set up my account using IMAP, and all my folders have imported correctly, except for the generic ones. They are in Spanish. I live in Spain. Amongst he languages in the settings of TB, Spanish is not present. In my original GMX account interface and settings there is no Spanish in use. I have configured the language settings in TB that I can see, to English, and restarted the laptop, but to no effect.

3. Is it possible to send emails from my original GMX account that will be sent via TB and therefore pEp.

4. What role does Mailvelope play in all this? Is it correct that in order to have the correct encryption process, I need to use TB in conjunction with pEp and Mailvelope.

I have never used a MUA before. It seems to be complicated. I would rather use the interfaces of my original email accounts (GMX and Protonmail), as they are more user friendly than the poor design of TB .

Thanks.

Recently a selection of my email folders no longer appear in Tbird. It included trash and sent but also many local folders that I have created. I use Pop but these folders are local and not synched to anything. I have tried removing the the two files (msf and the second one without an extention (mbox ?)) that appear in the mail storage folder, recreating an empty folder and replacing the generated folder with the original file. Next time I open, still no folder.

I have not tried moving and then recreating the panacea.dat and global-messages-db.sqlite files, though I have seen that suggested. Or the folderTree.json

The mail is all still there when I search for it.

I have tried repair folders. Nothing. I have tried showing hidden files - nothing.

How can I get Tbird to rebuild properly?
