Copied Mails from old Laptop not accepted

Dear all, on my McBook pro I had Thunderbird 78.8.1 installed. I saved my Mails per instruction onto my external disk. The saved directory looks like this: /Thunderbird/… (funda kabanzi)

Dear all,

on my McBook pro I had Thunderbird 78.8.1 installed. I saved my Mails per instruction onto my external disk. The saved directory looks like this: /Thunderbird/ImapMail /Thunderbird/ImapMail/imap.gmx.net /Thunderbird/ImapMail/imap.one.com /Thunderbird/Mail /Thunderbird/Mail/Local Folders /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-1.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-2.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web-3.de /Thunderbird/Mail/pop3.web.de

Then Apple reinstalled Big Sur from scratch. With a new user, I reinstalled Thunderbird -- this time I got V.78.9.0. I entered one of my three Mail-accounts as IMAP and closed Thunderbird. As per instruction, I copied the saved Thunderbird-data onto my internal hard disk into /Library/Thunderbird.

Actual results:

My stored mails from before the reinstallation are invisible. The other two Mail-accounts are invisible.

I added another one of my three Mail-accounts as POP3 and closed Thunderbird. As per instruction, I copied the saved Thunderbird-data onto my internal hard disk into /Library/Thunderbird.

My stored mails from before the reinstallation are still invisible. The other Mail-account is invisible.

Expected results:

I would like to access all my three Mail-accounts with the stored emails. At least I would like to get access to my stored Mail folders -- I can install the mail addresses newly, this is not my problem. After proceeding per instruction, I do not know why they are not accessible.

A very helpful person, Matt, showed me https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1315638#answer-1371097, where the same problem is solved. There it says:

  "Go to your backup and open whatever folder contains prefs.js."

In my backups is no prefs.js. To be exact, there is no prefs.js anywhere on my computer or on any of my backup disks. What can I do...? -- I can see my mails in the directory system. How can I access them?!

Thank you for your help in advance. N.

Cannot import mboxes with subfolder mboxes from Mac Mail into Thunderbird

I just switched from a Mac computer to a PC. My Mac Mail has about 15 years of emails in various folders within folders. I use this for my business, so it's a lot of emails. I tried to import the mbox files into Thunderbird from the auto-generated mboxes in the Library folder on my Mac computer, but when I did that, I got a series of subfolders within subfolders within subfolders named by numbers, not my folder names.

So, I tried a different method. I clicked on a main folder in my actual Mac Mail that contained sub-folders and clicked "export" and made sure to save it with its subfolders. I used the "Import/Export Tools Ng" importer add-on to import the main folder into my Thunderbird mail. However, it only imports the mail that was in the main folder. It does not bring over the subfolders (mboxes) with their mail.

I know there are a ton of importer tools out there, but I can't tell which ones will import the subfolders with their emails. I downloaded and tested a few of them on their trial versions, but none of them did what I wanted to.

Any help is MUCH appreciated!

Incoming mail not downloading properly.

After years of flawless use, Thunderbird has gotten cranky. Now when I click to open a new email in the in-box, this message pops up instead of the document:

"Not Downloaded. "Only the headers for this message were downloaded from the mail server. "Download the rest of the message."

Supposedly I can download the rest of the message with a click. But most of the time that's not working either. Click . . . nothing happens, but the "trouble" message stays in place. Click again and again and the response is the same: failure to open the email.

Sometimes I'll return to the in-box to try again and find that the header for a single email has multiplied several times. Usually the second or third duplicate will finally open.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to restore this function to normalcy, so a new email in the in-box opens with just one click, I'd be more than happy to hear it!

Thanks in advance.

Hello

A few weeks ago, I really struggled to install my profile on my laptop and I eventually deleted Thunderbird, reinstalled it and then managed to migrate my profile and everything worked fine

But today, I needed to use my laptop and when I try to launch Thunderbird, i get these strange popup windows (see screenshots)

If i then click on Thunderbird in the task bar and chose another command like "write an email ", the contents of the pop up window changes slightly but Thunderbird remains unusable as the normal windows do not appear

Can anybody help please?

Thanks

Profile separation forced by TBird updat

I used the same profile on the same computer dual booting between Windows10 and Linux Mint. My mail was stored on the Windows drive. I normally live in Linux. The other day, while on Windows, I let ThunderBird update. When back on Linux, I could not open TBird as the update forced a separation of profiles. I created an account on Linux and I am receiving new mail while on Linux. BUT... my old mail is stuck on Windows. To read that, I have to reboot to Windows. I made a tar ball of my Windows profile folder and copied it to ~/Thunderbird, and after extracting, named the folder per the profile name created on Linux (yxe2p9be.LinuxProfile). I still can not read my email.

Please. How do I copy my historical TBird email from Windows to Linux.

Just a side note to Thunderbird folks. Thank you for what you do. I know it it mostly volunteer. I appreciate the quality and the fact it is free. But (you knew there would be a but) you could have provided for this case. You could have provided an import function to allow one to import between forced split profiles. Not just put up a message that says it no longer is supported. You broke my Thunderbird!

After the April 11 update, I can no longer access my Roadrunner email. Nor will Thunderbird allow me to access the emails I had downloaded to my PC. Is there a way to uninstall the update? This is the first problem I've had in over 12 years.
