My computer recieved an update recently, a 78 I believe. Since then I have not been able to receive emails. I am asked for a master password which I have never had to supply before so I don't have one. I am also told that if I change my password I will lose all my previous emails. My email address is allanandkay@xtra.co.nz Can you let me know what I have to do to get back on line and receive emails. Allan Aitken

Problems sending from a customized email address

Hi,

Is this bug/problem/anomaly in Thunderbird posted in the right section?

Problem part #1 in sending an email from a customized email address

Although Thunderbird allows me to send an email from a customized email address by "Customize From Address...", and I have set things up so I do receive emails from my customized addresses. But when I reply to an email sent to that customized email address, Thunderbird ignores it and changes it to one of my regular email addresses instead.

This is a pain in the behind since then I have to waste my time and customize the from-address again. Worse, I sometimes forget and reply from the wrong address.

So Thunderbird definitely needs to become more user-friendly, and use my actual address used in the mail to which I'm replying rather than deciding I don't know what I'm doing and arrogantly deciding on changing my address for me.

Problem part #2 in sending an email from a customized email address

Worse, although this works in normal circumstances, if I save the draft email and then open it to edit before sending, then Thunderbird again thinks I don't know what I'm doing and refuses to send the email from my customized from-address. So I have to retype the email and set it up again to send from my customized from-address. See the bottom of these two screen-shots:

  • Thunderbird won't send from a custom address if saved and then draft opened but works if draft not closed 1.png
  • Thunderbird won't send from a custom address if saved and then draft opened but works if draft not closed 2.png

So fixing both of these errors/bugs/anomalies would be much appreciated.

Warm regards, Cris Baker Tuesday, 2021/05/11

Обычный поиск сообщений ничего не находит, а глобальный поиск находит два письма. Как мне удалить эти письма?

Hello, Thunderbird is great, but...

The reminder window keeps "blinking" to remind an alert, whatever you are doing it takes the focus and you hope that what you are typing wont be an answer for the calendar window!

This occur on new or not new calendar event.

What we expect is that on a new reminder, yes the reminder windows take the focus, but when this windows refresh with already displayed reminder, it does not take the focus and stay below all open windows.

How can I have this window remain in the background excepted when there is a new event ?

Thank you

Hi!

For work I use Tbird for years now, sometimes I have to prepare a lot of mails, eg 30, which I fill during the day and send after hours of work. I then see 30 times the 'new message ' text in my taskbar. It is quite hard to find the right mail when you see 'new me....' x 30. Would it be possible to change that?

I think it is in the language pack , but how to edit that? Is there no add-on to take care of that? I have been combing out the add on section but perhaps I miss sth.

Help is very much appreciated. Thanks a lot for your time,

This is very weird, and Ellen could not remember her sign-in, so she is going to post on my account. Here she is:

I have a very old Mac computer. Don't laugh, it's a G4, and it still worked ok until we changed our outgoing mail server. Remember Robert had some issues with his server change as well? His is working fine. For years, after we changed from Optimum to Verizon Fios, we still used mail.optonline.net as our outgoing server because Verizon Fios doesn't host mail. Our incoming server is a pop box on RCN, which hosts Robert's site.

A couple of weeks ago, the optonline box stopped working for Robert, and we switched him over to an smtp outgoing box on rcn. It works fine.

My optonline worked for another week. Then, when it stopped working, I installed it first on my G4, and then on my iPhone. I was getting incoming mail on the G4 until 11:35 that day, the time I installed it on the iPhone. Now I only get incoming mail on my iPhone.

I know the answer is to buy a new computer, but we can't for a few more months, so we really need to fix the G4. I called RCN and Apple, and they both said that it's a Thunderbird problem. The iPhone says "Delete from server Never" under Advanced. So it shouldn't be interfering. But it is.

Please help.

Since a recent update on thunderbird, staff at my company are unable to add external email addresses to the address book. Prior to the update external email addresses that are constantly been used are pre-saved and usually come up with auto-complete or it can be added to the persons address book. We don't have that issue with internal email addresses. At the moment staff would have to manually type external email addresses each time they want to send an email to that address.
