Hello everybody.

I'm experiencing a behaviour of Thunderbird different than usual (I use it from the first version). I don't save e-mail passwords and there are no saved password in the password manager. With previous TB versions, I used to type password once for each account's POP/IMAP server (incoming messages) and once for each account's SMTP server (outgoing). With 68.12.0, it seems that password are cached for a limited amount of time and I need to retype them more times during session, but moreover it asks for password only if I click on an IMAP folder: this means that accounts which are setup to look for new messages each 10 minutes, silently fail to look for new messages because password isn't cached and there is no request for password; so I think that I have no new messages while instead there are a lot of them! This happens with different servers from different providers. I've looked in the release notes but find nothing, looked in the community but there are mainly issues with saved passwords. Any advise?

Thank you. Matteo

For some unknown reason my email stopped working from my provider (Spectrum, i.e. Time Warner Cable) a couple days ago. They were no help in fixing (as I was still able to send/receive email from the website).

I decided to just recreate new accounts from scratch. I have 2 accounts, a personal and business account. The personal account worked fine and I migrated all my old emails over. The business account could receive email but not send.

If I go to Options/Security/Passwords, I have password entries for personal account incoming (imap://mail.twc.com) and outgoing (smtp://mail.twc.com). For my business account, there is an entry for incoming, but not one for outgoing.

As far as I can tell, you can enter a password when you create the account, but never again after.

If I try to send an email, the popup message says "Status: connected to mail.twc.com". Finally it says "The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) mail.twc.com timed out."

I have just added a master password. Now, every time I start Thunderbird, I have to enter my master password 3 times!! The first time it happened, I thought I entered the wrong password 2 times (unlikely but OK). But I have now observed this behavior at least 3 times. And every time, I have to enter the password exactly 3 times. I have 3 email accounts; could it be that I have to enter the password for every account?

Any idea what's wrong here? It looks like a bug to me.

Hi,

long user of TB here.

I updated the new TB to the latest release (78.3.1, x64) and I've noticed that now encryptions and the signature features are integrated into TB drectly. In the past I used Enigmail for those features.

Now, with the latest version of TB if I want to encrypt and signing an email for only some of my recipients I have to go to the menu and click on the appropriate menu items. While before there were two toolbar buttons for that purpose. Even more, once I specified a recipient whose key already was inside TB those buttons where automatically toggled.

Having those toolbar buttons was a nice features compared to what I have to do now going to the main menu and clicking on menu items.

Is it possible to have the encryptions and signature features again as toolbar buttons on the latest TB?

I tried customizing the toolbar but there were no buttons for encryption and signature.

Thanks a lot

Hello, Please forgive me if I haven't found the thread that already relates to this. But I would like to be able to have messages I send expire after some time period. It looks like there was an add on "Expiry" that is no longer supported that did this to some extent. The functionality is available in Outlook and Gmail, which leads me to believe it is probably available in Thunderbird, but I am just not looking in the right place. I know that subscription services also provide this option but I would like it to be native to Thunderbird.

Thanks, Kurtis M

Claification on Private Keys Storage

I read the following text from the FAQ but still have some questions about how it works. Assuming you don't have a Master Password, are those Private (Secret) keys are stored not encrypted? In one sentence it says they are protected with a random password when imported and in another it says they are unprotected if there is no master password. If they are not protected (encrypted) without a master password being present, what happens when you add one? Do they then get encrypted with that random password? Also what happens to versions that were stored in plaintext?

How is my personal key protected?

At the time you import your personal key into Thunderbird, we unlock it, and protect it with a different password, that is automatically (randomly) created. The same automatic password will be used for all OpenPGP secret keys managed by Thunderbird. You should use the Thunderbird feature to set a Master Password. Without a master password, your OpenPGP keys in your profile directory are unprotected.

Thanks

I had been using Thunderbird + Enigmail + Gpg4win + Yubikey to sign and encrypt my emails and the setup worked pretty well. However, after updating to Thunderbird 78, which has built-in OpenPGP support, I'm having trouble to configure it to work with my Yubikey.

Following is my GPG keyring:

PS C:\Users\DDoSolitary> gpg -K --keyid-format long C:/Users/DDoSolitary/AppData/Roaming/gnupg/pubring.kbx


sec# ed25519/50268311C7AD3F62 2017-09-02 [SC]

     688E1D093C3638F588890D4450268311C7AD3F62

uid [ultimate] DDoSolitary <DDoSolitary@gmail.com> uid [ultimate] DDoSolitary <DDoSolitary@outlook.com> ssb> rsa4096/A7A1C4F99C807AD4 2019-03-21 [A] ssb> rsa4096/F091309F5863457C 2019-03-21 [E] ssb> rsa4096/90A79E1B71BC0CB1 2019-03-21 [S]

The master key is kept offline and the subkeys are stored in my Yubikey and are used to sign/encrypt messages.

What I've tried:

1. Enable "mail.openpgp.allow_external_gnupg" according to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:OpenPGP:Smartcards 2. Add my key ID to in the "End to End Encryption" section of Account Settings (I've tried key ID of the master key and the signing subkey, both of which don't work) 3. Write a new message, check "Security > Digitally Sign This Message", then click Send.

I've checked that the GPGME library (C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuPG\bin\libgpgme-11.dll) is in the PATH environment variable. As Gpg4win only provides 32-bit builds, I also reinstalled the 32-bit version of Thunderbird.

Unfortunately, I always get "Unable to send the message, because there is a problem with your personal key. The configured key ID 'xxx' cannot be found on your keyring."

How to figure out what certificate needs to be trusted to fix "your connection is being intercepted by a TLS proxy"?

Thunderbird on Windows 10 was working fine with my GlobalProtect VPN until I upgraded to version 78. Now, whenever I'm on the VPN, I get the error "your connection is being intercepted by a TLS proxy". I'm only able to sync with mail servers when VPN is disconnected.

I don't have any ability to alter my VPN configuration, so how do I tell Thunderbird to trust the certificate in question? The Thunderbird error message doesn't give me an option to trust a certificate. I don't know where to find the certificate -- e.g. in Windows 10 certificate store? -- to export so I can import and trust it in Thunderbird. Assume I don't have any support from my VPN provider, how do I get past this issue? Is there a way to find out what untrusted certificate Thunderbird is receiving and then tell it to trust it? Or to track down the root CA I need to import in Windows 10?

Thanks for any pointers in the right direction.
