Hi,

I installed Thunderbird, to set up a new email address rajiv@crookedimagez.com

I host www.crookedimagez.com at TMDHosting.Com and got an email address from one of their Webhosting things.

Anyway, when I set up the email address on Thunderbird, I used an auto-detect setting, which seems a bit different from the settings that they gave me in their email, which is in the screenshot attached.

So, how do I set it up, to send and receive mails? And, how do I set up the chat function?

Please remember: I am an absolute dummy when it comes to these things Regards Rajiv

Is there a restriction on the number of folders in the new version? Same folders were missing when I tried to update to 78 in October. I hoped you fixed the problem with the newer versions. Anyone else have the same problem?

Hi there ! I setup two account, gmail and hotmail on a new 78.5.1 thunderbird profile.

I receive ALL the emails from the two webmails, but I fail in responding or sending new emails. The send button is greied and the sender's email appears in red. I tried all the suggestions from the post : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cannot-send-messages

except deleting the SMTP password as it is a brand new profile.

Any other Ideas, please ?

Attached, the two SMTP setup And a screen shot of the sending window

My config : windows 10, NOD32 (i tried without the AV running). note : I downgraded from beta 84.02b to 78.5.1, but created a brand new profile and synchronised all the existing messages

Thank You !

Hello; after upgrading to 78 from 68,

1. My TB cannot display messages in the inbox (except a few folders which I created today in 68 just before the upgrade). 2. Furthermore, I can send test messages, but I cannot locate the Send mailbox. Where is it ? Anyhow after sending, TB shows an error message saying “there was an error while running message filters on it”. 3. And lastly, it does not retrieve emails from Gmail (I am using POP server) even though it works perfectly in 68.

I have followed a forum advice that I open the 78 in safe mode and reset all the toolbars and controls but it does not make any difference.

What do I need to do ?

Apparently I had the "automatic update" enabled and have updated to v78.5.3 I am not able to send any emails along with my contacts not available when I type in the address field.

I actually just want to revert back to my previous 'working' version of TB - I believe it's v68. We've tried a few different things to get V78 to work and it has in terms of sending emails, however my folders, add ons, etc are a mess and I have a BUNCH of work I need to get done now. I will probably eventually upgrade however I really need to get back to the previous version.

Thank you

I recently had to reinstall Thunderbird because it stopped downloading my emails (could still send them). I started a new profile but would like to go back to my old one with about 10 years of archived emails. I see what I think is my old and new profile folder under the profiles directory. The new one has the extension "default-release" while the old one has "default". I tried to remove the new one and got an error message that profile could not be found. I also tried to change the extension of the old one to match the working new one but again, error says profile cannot be found. Any ideas how to go back to the old profile and restore my old emails? Thanks for any help!

I have been using Airmail as my email client, but now I would like to use Thunderbird instead. I've downloaded and installed Thunderbird, and then manually configured my IMAP email accounts. It all seemed to be working fine and my inbox content became up to date, but when I scroll through my folders I see that the folder list does not fully reflect what is both in Airmail and also my webmail.

Why does Thunderbird not synchronize to reflect all the folders on the server that I see in webmail?

I have checked the settings in Thunderbird and synchronizing is set to all messages.

Every so often, TB tells there are updates and wants to install them. And then I'm left with a conundrum:

  1. Do I let TB update itself and possibly break some of my extensions jsut so that I can stay current?
  2. Or do I tell TB to f-off and not install the updates because I don't want to deal with the possibility of a bunch of broken crap. And get left behind on an unsupported version of TB which when I am forced to upgrade (or install TB on a new or reinstalled computer, the extensions in my restored profile are all incompatible.

Dammed if I do, Dammed if I don't.

And why do I even need to make such a crappy choice? (Yes, I'm feeling bitchy because I just spent an hour tryin to get my critical extensions (Google Calendar Provider and GContact Sync) working after a TB upgrade that I stupidly let TB foist on me (and it still isn't working).

As far as I can tell, I'm in this situation because: 1) TB developers aren't expected to maintain backwards compatibility 2) TB has chosen not to provide any means for a TB user to check the compatibility of their currently installed extensions with the update that TB is delivering automatically. 3) TB has chosen not to provide any way to revert an update to TB to the state it was in before the update.

This leaves users who don't want to be TB experts stuck because we have to have intimate knowledge of TBs workings to clean up the mess that a TB update can leave us with.

Googling "Thunderbird XXX broke my extensions" or "How can I revert a Thunderbird update?" yeilds lots of hits so I know I am not the only one who keeps running into this.

I have found all sorts of very technical articles on how to fix the situation by reinstalling an older version of TB. But if we are letting TB update itself, most people don't know what version they were on immediately before this last update that broke stuff.

So some suggestions for TB (roughly in order of increasing value): 1) Have a variable somewhere that contains the previous version of TB. 2) Have a command on the Help menu that downloads and reinstalls that version of TB automatically with no technical skills required. 3) Have TB automatically make a backup of it's installation so that it could be reinstalled more easily 4) Have TB install updates by downloading the new version and installing it beside my current install so that if I have any problems, I can run the old version while I wait for updates to the broken extensions. (I've found an article on how to install 2 versions of TB at the same time, so clearly this is doable; why not do it automatically?) 5) Have TB check all my extensions BEFORE installing the update and tell me which ones are incompatible and:

     a) Will have to be updated (automatically) after the update , or 
     b) Have no update available yet so just plain won't work after the update

Yes, I know that TB developers are volunteers and I appreciate all the work you do on the product. But really, does a product update process need to be so unpredictable and require so much technical knowledge to recover from? Have we consciously decided that TB should only be used by people technical enough to build it? (Are we only building it for ourselves?)

I have used TB for going on 20 years (well before GMail came out) and much prefer it to competing products like MS Outlook. But I have to admit that this hellish upgrade nightmare has sent me looking for a replacement on several occasions already.
