I got an email from Microsoft saying my Live.com or Outlook.com email accounts won't be supported in Thunderbird UNLESS I change the settings to OAuth2 in incoming and outgoing server settings.

I even REMOVED the email account and re-added it making sure it was OAuth2.

But for my live.com & outlook.com email accounts I continually get prompts for passwords from Thunderbird. Sometimes I can't even click the RED X at the upper right to shut the prompt down. I just happens over and over until I give it what it wants.

I am tempted to shut down all Microsoft email accounts and switch to Gmail.

I have Thunderbird version 115.12.2 (64-bit) I used Windows 11 23H2 build 22631.3810 Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22700.1020.0

Any idea how to stop these prompts?

I like Thunderbird much more than any other email program I have ever used, and would like to keep it

From the article "Microsoft OAuth Authentication and Thunderbird in 2024" there is a screenshot showing a OAuth2 option for the SMTP server setting with STARTTLS connection security. It does not appear for me. There are only the five options, as shown in the screenshot. How do enable the option to be available in the drop-down list or set it?

The available options are:

No Authentication Normal Password Encrypted Password Kerberos / GSSAPI NTLM

I am on Thunderbird version 115.12.1 (64-bit), Windows 11, version 23H2, build 22631.3737

Hello,

I am using the latest stable release of Thunderbird client on Windows 11 and just today it's been asking me multiple times for a password to my Outlook account. I have kept adding a one time app password through the official Microsoft website under account management but it's been asking a few times that it needs a password.

Do you know if there's been any outages to the Microsoft servers or what this issue could be related to? Is there a way I can send any logs directly to you that might help find the issue?

Thank you for your time.

As of version 115.0 for 64bit, I am unable to send emails to Outlook.com. An error occurs saying:

Send Message Error Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to the Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com timed out. Try again.

There are no issues sending emails to Outlook.com using a different mail client.

Right then, about a week ago Thunderbird updated from 115.2.2 to 115.2.3.

I use TB to manage my Gmail, Hotmail and business emails. Has worked well, until this new update.

I began immediately receiving a pop-up regarding my Hotmail account. Sometimes the pop-up flashes for a few seconds, other times it stays on the screen.

https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/oauth2/v2.0/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=9e5f94bc-e8a4-4e73-b8be-63364c29d753&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Flocalhost&scope=https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FIMAP.AccessAsUser.All+https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FPOP.AccessAsUser.All+https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FSMTP.Send+offline_access&login_hint=XXXX%40hotmail.com

  • The XXXX is my email name removed.

The pop-up is mostly blank except for a text box at the very top with a long string of characters. Above that it states, 'Enter credentials for XXXX@hotmail.com at Outlook.Office365.com'. I can't figure out if it wants me to enter the string of characters somewhere on Outlook or if I am supposed to copy something from Outlook and paste it into the text box. Moreover, I cannot seem to find anything online to assist.

The problem is emails from Outlook are not downloading to TB. My last downloaded email was on 11.09.23 and there are new messages in my Outlook.

Ideas?

I was able to send emails till July 14. After that day it's been impossible to send or reply to messages from my Outlook account (I receive emails though). I have made no changes to Thunderbird's configuration since then. Basically it's the Oauth2 authentication that fails. I briefly see a browser page for authentication, wait, wait, wait and then the mail is not sent and I get an error message related to servers timeout (attached). Sorry, my interface is in Italian, but anyway the message is something like: "Unable to send email because of a timeout on the connection to the out server (SMTP) smtp.office365.com. Try again." Is this a known bug? Any ideas? It's quite annoying to use the browser interface to send messages while I am able to receive them in Thunderbird :) Thank you in advance, guys!

I have connected my wifes outlook acc. and my Gmail acc. without issue, one on each of the user profiles, but with the 3rd my Outlook acc, I keep getting the "Unable to log in at server..." error. The Name/email/password are all correct. I have tried connecting my 3rd email account (+New/Existing Mail Account) as the 2nd account on different profiles but I get the same error trying to connect my Outlook acc.. I have verified that Thunderbird is configured to accept cookies. Is there some issue with having 2 outlook accounts linked to the same instance of Thunderbird?? (I hope not!! - that would be a complete deal-breaker!) Is there anything else I can try? Many thanks

Hello,

an update to Thunderbird 115.0.1 prevents e-mail sending from one account, although incoming items are displayed. A new password option fails. However, Outlook e-mail account runs as usual with expected password and sends as expected.

We have set an IMAP protocol and as this arose, changed authentication method from 0Auth2 to normal password, as yet with no effect. Any pointers to reactivate our e-mail sending shall be appreciated.

With kind regards,

                                Colin.

I've been a faithful Thunderbird user since the beginning - and continue to use Thunderbird with our company's Microsoft365 deployment

until Monday of this week -- when suddenly I find that my credentials are being refused.

The symptoms

I've read and tried all the fixes proposed in the article at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/microsoft-oauth-authentication-and-thunderbird-202 (restarting thunderbird after each step, naturally)

  • have authorized Thunderbird to our Microsoft365 tenant
  • created and tried registering with a new thunderbird profile
  • have set my security settings to 'accept all cookies'
  • have used the config editor to remove 'oauth2.issuer' and 'oauth2.scope' values
  • I've checked that my account in Microsoft365 has IMAP and Authenticated SMTP enabled

So, since Monday, I've been living in hell, trying to pretend that the Microsoft Outlook app for macOS is useable, but it's practically debilitating to be forced to use that piece of software.

Can somebody please point me to another possible set of steps that I can use to try and diagnose this?

I absolutely hate myself for having to ask for help on this, but I'm at my wit's end...

While away from my computer for a few days, Thunderbird stopped retrieving new emails. I noticed this when I returned. I'm using imap to download from the server. Logging in to the server via browser shows that there indeed new emails. Quitting Thunderbird and restarting results in showing old emails and a spinner (slider?) on the Inbox tab that never stops. I have not changed configuration recently (I was away when this started). I followed a suggestion to delete cert9.db, key4.db, and logins.json. Doing this and restarting changed nothing. My understanding is that this should have deleted my server password information, but I was not prompted for a password on restart. I have uploaded a snapshot of the "Troubleshooting information" tab to pastebin:

I have several Outlook.com e-mail addresses in TB 115. Every time I start TB, I get the popup window to send a notification to my Microsoft Authenticator mobile app and authenticate the access. I get the popup for each account I have.

This happened when i installed v115 over the previous version. I still get the authentication popups after deleting my profile and re-entering my accounts from scratch.

All of my outlook.com accounts are passwordless and no longer have an app password associated with them.

Hi there! I am using Thunderbird with an Outlook e-mail account. Due to the slowness and cumbersomeness of the syncing with the Outlook IMAP server I have deleted my IMAP account and created a POP3 account. Now all is well except for one thing: I have two Drafts folders. One of them is named Drafts - Local Folders, the other Drafts - OUTLOOK - Local Folders. They are both sub-folders of my Drafts folders. I am almost certain that the second one is a leftover from my deleted IMAP account. I have found some discussions and “solutions” of this issue online but none of them seem to fit my situation, and the instructions in them do not reflect what happens on my screen. Any assistance you may care to provide will be very much appreciated.
