I am so incredibly disappointed with thunderbird, long such an excellent email program. WHY did you make it so difficult to load previous profiles? I have read and tried several methods to get old profiles working again, but so far no success. WHY not make an easier way to import them? Over a decade of saved messages, from all relatives, all passwords/logins (I would email myself) and many saved articles and jokes. I am so disappointed they have not made this easier (if indeed it is possible, as yet no article I have followed has worked). So disappointed.

I made a complete backup of Mozilla Thunderbird back in February, before I installed Windows 10 replacing Windows 7. I was able to reinstall all my mail from the backup after Windows 10 installation. An OS corruption forced me to wipe out my newly installed Windows 10, reinstall it, and start fresh with Mozilla Thunderbird. I cannot find a way to import my mail to my new Thunderbird. I'd appreciate any help you can provide me. Thanks in advance.

I am migrating everything I have from Mac OS 10.13 to Linux (Ubuntu 20.04). I am currently running Thunderbird 68.8.1 on the Mac. I have years of Thunderbird data, currently running version, account set-ups, etc, that I need to migrate to Thunderbird 68.8.0 on Ubuntu 20.04.

I would like to know how I can properly move the data/profile from the Mac to Ubuntu.

I have copied the whole Thunderbird directory from my Mac to my Ubuntu home directory. I have tried the following: remove the ~/.thunderbird directory, copy the Mac Thunderbird directory to ~/.thunderbird, move the ~/.thunderbird/Profiles/<active-profile>.default up a level to ~/.thunderbird, remove the ~/.thunderbird/Profiles directory, fix up (edit) various directory references in ~/.thunderbird/<active-profile>.default/prefs.js to correct for Mac-Linux file location differences, also changed the app-version reference in the prefs.js to 68.8.0 (from the Mac's 68.8.1), fix up (edit) the profile Path= references in ~/.thunderbird/profiles.ini, similarly fix up (edit) the Default= reference in ~/.thunderbird/installs.ini

When I restart Thunderbird, it complains about the profile and wants me to create a new one.

What is the best way for me to accomplish this move? I don't see any recent articles mentioning this particular move: Mac to Linux.

Thanks, Evelyn

Just got around to migrating from WLM to Thunderbird and I'm getting my email accounts [Gmail] added to my Thunderbird [Ver 68.8.1] installation on my Windows Home 10 laptop. First one went fine and in the process was presented the 'Sign In with your Google Account' prompt screen. Email account name was automatically populated and after selecting 'Next' all I needed to do was to enter my Google password. Account installed fine and Thunderbird/Google did their 'hand-shake' and my emails were downloaded into Thunderbird. Off to a good start! Looking from the Google Account side of things, it showed 'Mozilla Thunderbird Email' under 'Third-party apps with account access.' So I considered this one done...

Getting my subsequent Gmail account added didn't go so well as I couldn't get past the 'Sign In with your Google Account' prompt screen. The Email account name was auto-populated as before, but selecting 'Next' didn't get me to what should have been the enter password screen. It simply 'cleared' the account name and sat there. Trying to enter the account name manually didn't get me anywhere.

This occurred for the couple of the Gmail accounts I tried and they all were 'fine' using WLM and/or Web access to the respective Google accounts.

In looking thru the Forum I see similar issues with earlier builds.

Appreciate any comments/suggestions.

Would be appreciative of instructions on how to complete this mail migration task without risking losing (ie, replacing) my current mail in the process. Can anyone help, please?

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, and then it works fine. And within another 24 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.

Thunderbird upgraded to 68.8 on may 7th. I rebooted a couple of days later and tbird can't find my profile or my email accounts or something. It asks me to set up a new email account each time. I've tried deleting the profile dir after making a copy of mine, creating a new profile and copying mine back to the new profile. I've tried this multiple times in fact. I've restarted with addons disabled with the same results.

I have an TB 52.5 installation on the disks from my old pc, which I wish to move to my new machine.

I've read I can just copy the thunderbird folder from appdata\roaming to the new location on my new machine, but I'm concerned that the format of some of the files I'm moving over from v52.5 won't be compatible with the the new 68.8 files and I shouldn't just be overwritting/deleting the files from 68.8 without some care.

Are there, in fact, any issues here I need to care more care about, or does it just magically work?

Or should I reinstall a 52.5 version, change the profile location folder, and then perform an upgrade to 68.8?

I have been a long time user of Thunderbird. I run multiple computers which I like to network share/backup Thunderbird under my User/AppData/Roaming profile. I have been running Beta versions on all of my computers, but any change to the beta version on my primary machine causes me to have to make beta updates on all the others so my copied profile works. I have also noticed many issues with printing on the current beta versions. I want to get off the beta treadmill and simply install the current stable Thunderbird version. When I do this on a machine I am unable to get any of my current profile to work. I have multiple email accounts and have everything setup exactly as I want it, so starting from scratch on the stable version and loosing all my saved folders and email files would be very painful. Is there a way to install the current stable Thunderbird version and bring over my profile from a beta version (downgrade)? I would love to see some type of export and import that would work between versions, but that doesn't appear to be an option at this time.

My IMAP service provider has made an urgent request to change to a different server for IMAP and SMTP. The old server is about to be retired very shortly. At present both old and new servers are working. I have updated the Server Settings to the new server name. Server settings show the new IMAP server under Account Settings. However when I look at the properties for Inbox it still shows the old server. Is this a problem? If so, what is the fix/work-around?

I've downloaded Thunderbird, which has downloaded all my mails, replicating my different online folders. At the moment it just copies everything I do online, including deleting in Thunderbird whenever I delete online. How do I fix it so Thunderbird just retains everything on my computer and adds to it each time i log on, even though I've "cleared out" my online mailboxes? Do I have to create the whole folder system again as "local files" and transfer them, or what? Sorry if this is an obvious question but I'm near my online data limit and don't want to lose whatI've already downloaded. Any help appreciated!
