I restarted as Thunderbird said it needed too to finish the update. Once my computer restarted Thunderbird was gone. The exe folder is there, but empty. I tried to reload via Thundebirds download but that doesn't work either. Folder is still empty and no shortcut. I found where all my mail folders are, but no way to open thunderbird. What do I need to do?

Do we have any automation available for re-configuring Thunder Bird client to point towards O365. This has to be Zero Touch and centrally. Can we achieve it, even if its going to be a paid support is fine.

I reinstalled my system from ubuntu 20.04 do manjaro I saved ~/.thunderbird folder from the old system to an external drive After I copied the folder back to home and started Thunderbird it does not seem to see the profile. Although it can read some of the data, like the Address Book but no account settings no folders, nothing else.

I found the help page

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer

And tried to do it but it doesn't help. Thunderbird found my old profile and it is visible in about:profiles and set as the default profile.

Hey, I need some help to save my older E-mails. What I did: Upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to 18.04 LTS in mid 2019.

before that I did not a propper migration because I didnt know it exists, but I saved 2 folders with Thunderbird on it. I dont know if I got the right ones because they are on different places, some seem to be hidden folders.

So.. one has this content thunderbird/etc The other one thunderbird/usr/lib/thunderbird/chrome, defaults, distribution, extensions ..... thunderbird/usr/lib/thunderbird-addons/ distribution, extensions.. thunderbird/usr/lib/.thunderbird/ Crash Reports, Pending Pings, ..

Mybe I have the wrong folder, maybe I got the right one but I cant find the e-mails in all the cryptic data.

can anyone help me with that please?


second problem I got is the updatebutton in Thunderbird doesn't work, so I had to install a new version and migrate everything to that new installation? Can't be the right solution.

My actual Version: 68.8.0 So no updates almost a year

I use 3 different Thunderbird profiles. After the upgrade to 68.3.1 only one of the profiles works. If I try the other 2 profiles, Thunbderbird partly starts up but will not display emails - please see attached image. Some things work eg the 'Write' button opens a new 'write' window. 'Get messages' works (I get a pop up message when an e-mail is downloaded), however the email is not displayed. 'Account settings' in the tools menu does not work. 'Trouble shooting' in the Help menu does not work.

When using a different PC with an older version of Thunderbird (60.?.? I think) I was able to open all 3 profiles. However after upgrading to 68.3.1 on that PC led to the same issue - 1 profile working, 2 profiles not working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear All,

As said on title, I cannot import PST files into Thunderbird... even if I set up Outlook as default client...

I found that some softwares which offers service for PST to MBOX migration are either not free of charges and that we have too many softwares options there.

So, - Is there any solution to import PST data into Outlook without conversion? - If conversion software is required, do you have some recommendations on which software to use? Not that expensive one, plz.

Tks.

My computer had a hardware problem and I had to re-install windows. I have been using a backup system so I have a backup of my thunderbird data in the Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles folder. However the files in my backup profile don't look the same as the files in the profile that gets created when I install thunderbird. I do not know what version of Thunderbird I had but it was obviously much older. I've tried installing many versions in the hopes of finding one that works but so far I cannot get Thunderbird to recognize my data. I've tried creating a new profile and copying the contents from my old profile into it too.

(Apologies in advance, somehow my original post got marked as "resolved", but it may been me: PEBCAK. Reposting with additional information.)

The rev 68.8 Thunderbird upgrade stops being able to read the existing profile, usually within 24 hours. (Windows 10, no custom profile. no custom anything). I get the pop-up box complaining about trying to read an old profile.

I can re-install Thunderbird (from the same downloaded installer executable), and then it works fine. And within another 24-48 hours, it stops working again.

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

My next step is to completely remove Thunderbird (and all profiles), reboot, and reinstall from scratch. Um, have to back up local folders. Painful.

Attached a screen capture of the error message.

Hi I'm having trouble copying my old data over to my new PC. I figured out where the appropriate folders were and transferred everything over and it seemed to work - fine. I got all my folders although the SENT folder only contained some of my sent emails but that wasn't a big deal.

But then I sent my first email from the new PC and all of the folders which were displaying on the sidebar disappeared. When I look to see where the INBOX messages are stored (which didn't disappear) it points to an IMAP location. I understand this is something to do with storing the messages online but don't understand why its doing that and/or why that wiped out all my other folders.

Thanks for you help Mitch

Latest release deleted e-mails (6-2-20)

My Thunderbird program was set for automatic update. After the update to 68.8.1, all my archived emails from the past 20 years were missing. I could not find a link to change to reflect that all my Thunderbird emails were at C:\emailtb1. Also, more important, before the automatic update I had about 500 emails in my inbox. Only 150 now appear. The other 350 are gone!

My email account is ronsteinbach2@att.net. AT&T uses yahoo.com for its emails. I went to yahoo.com and I discovered that the Thunderbird installer also deleted about 1,000 of my emails at Yahoo, leaving only the same 150.

I uninstalled the version 68.8.1 of Thunderbird, and found 60.5.3 on my computer which I installed. I found the place to change my file location (missing in 68.8.1) to C:/emailtb1, and the old program found my 20 years of old emails (saved under Thunderbird under separate file names each with about 500 emails).

My 350 missing emails in my previous inbox were not found by 60.5.3 either. I am an attorney and I need the missing emails.

Also, when I load the old Thunderbird program, it automatically reverts to the "Profile" under the newest release and I have to again set up the same "Profile" for the old version. And the program again re-loads, one by one, each of the same 150 remaining emails.

I have used Thunderbird since its inception with no problems. I almost forgot that my address book is now empty, both under the new version and the old version which I re-installed!

Ron Steinbach, ronsteinbach2@att.net

P.S. I have used computers since 1984. Deleting files on an install is not acceptable.
