Hello all I just started my thunderbird after years of outlook. And I have donated money I hope this helps to keep this alive. With recent 2FA changes I have had to move here. it is years of old emails and for now I am getting them to review later.

But everyone seems nice here.

When I am downloading I notice limits on number of messages in one mailbox in Thunderbird. One mailbox is everything inside one email username right?

Sometimes it stops at 10, 000 Is the limit based on thunderbird or the email server I am getting my emails from ???

Thank you for anticipated help!

The opening page seems to have suddenly changed, smaller print, different layout, in particular also the folders now don't appear all down the left side, they cut off halfway up & the message shows right across instead of all the way down. Can I reset it to the original view?

I create templates to keep copies of regular correspondence. I copy this text to paste into reply's to enquiries - (yes I know that not the purpose of a template but its the simplest way to have copies of regular reply's on hand) As of today - text copied from a template will not "paste" into an email - it will only "paste without formatting" - which means layout and hyperlinks are not supported . Has worked successfully for a couple of years - but now no. I haven't added any extensions or upgraded systems - it just stopped today - so annoying - any ideas

I find that when I click on links to take me to website through my email in Thunderbird that I will get an error message that reads "we could not verify the certificate, reason=wronghost"

But, if I copy link and copy into browser it works fine. There is a break in the Thunderbird email to the browser. This does not happen with all links but there are about three or four that I get regularly where it fails.

I have talked to a tech guy and we have tried different things and it always comes back to a break in Thunderbird email.

How do I fix this problem?

Thank you, Monica

Change in behavior with Thunderbird on Windows 10 - Dragging file icon to TB app icon on Desktop no longer creates a new message with the file attached

Trying to help a client.

He's in his late 80s and has motor function issues due to illness.

It seems that a recent update has changed the behavior of TB for the worse for him.

He's accustomed to dragging a file (PDF File mainly) to the TB app icon on his desktop. Up until recently, this would launch TB and open a new message with the file attached. Now, it only opens TB?

His motor function problems makes using the W10 "Send to" dialogue impossible really, can't get the cursor to the submenu to select "Mail Recipient" .. That's why I set him up with the above method in the first place.

Launching TB then creating a new message, and adding the attachment manually works, but is also more cumbersome than the method he'd been able to use for years now.

Has anyone else sen this change in behavior? I was going to roll back to the previous update, but it looked as if the latest update before today was long before the change in behavior was observed?

It'd be great if the next update fixed this, and he could get back to something that's comfortable and works for him.

Thunderbird will not connect to my bt mail. I have tried Mailbird, Outlook and others and they will not connect. I have checked configuration with BT and they say all OK. Have changed password - no change. Manually configured with password - no change. My PC has had a new SSD since and still will not connect. I have Broadband with BT so I get the same privaligies as Premium. I have malwarebytes and that allows them to connect. Up until a couple of weeks ago it worked OK and then suddenly it stopped working. Had my local Techie shop look at it - no result. They said it must be BT, but spoke to them again today and they say it should work - certainly with outlook. They recognise connection, but says either config or password incorrect. Changed password again, but no change. Can you please tell me where the problems is. Thanks

I have 2 email accounts, one Hotmail and a Gmail, in that order. On starting Thunderbird, I’m asked to put my Hotmail password in. It then works for a while then ask for password again. The Gmail one works fine. This has been going on for about 2 months.

In account settings it shows my_email@hotmail.com In Server settings: Server name: pop-mail.outlook.com User Name: my_email@hotmail.com

So far, all appears to be good. Where it fails is when I go to Tools>Settings>Passwords>Saved Passwords, no Hotmail account shows, only my Gmail account. Anyone have an idea how to solve the constant sign in and retrieve my account in Saved Passwords please?

For about the last month I have been having problems receiving emails via Thunderbird. Previously all was fine. The emails are with the the Sky/Yahoo email service in UK. The error message is of the form 'Login to server imap.mail.yahoo.com with username xxxxxxxsky.com failed' and is time dependent, i.e. is most likely to occur In the afternoon or evening (UK time - GMT) probably on a weekday. The same occurs when accessing the Sky email server. If I use Outlook to look at the Sky emails all is fine, so I could swap to Outlook but I really want to stick with Thunderbird. Emails from other email services work fine when accessed via Thunderbird. It cannot be a password problem because the error is time dependent. Please help.

My Thunderbird(115.8.0) and Windows 11 just don't get along. My Thunderbird has a Menu button in the top right that's just there for it does nothing when I click or right click so I guess no add-ons, calendar, etc. If I hover over it I see "Display the Thunderbird Menu" and that's it. When I open the program it doesn't go to my inbox, it goes to a page that I have to click on "Read Messages" to get to my inbox and in prior versions and I had Windows 10 this never happened. When I go to buttons on the left and click on "Help" and then "About Thunderbird" to check on updates I always get "Unable to check for updates due to internal error" and oh yeah now in Thunderbird I can't copy and paste, I can highlight but when I right click....nothing.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and even tried removing hidden folders, but as of now nothing has worked. I don't know what to think and I'm truly at a loss and it sure looks like I have to find another email program because right now Thunderbird just ain't working. I've been using this program I believe for over 20 years with really zero problems but my luck has apparently run out. Sorry for the mini series. lol

We have been using Thunderbird for years and love it. I have a considerable amount of emails now stored/filed under local folders which does well to keep my inbox clean. But they do take up space on my Hard Drive. I have a Dell which uses 2 drives- one with flash smaller at 500G and another with a Terabyte So I have several questions which relate to moving those emails off to another drive or location

  • I can export each email individually as HTML or save as a txt file and move it to another Drive (portable or to my larger D drive)

-this is time consuming when dealing with 1000 + emails -is there a program that will do that for multiple email files at one time? Either at Thunderbird utility or 3rd party?

  • Is there a way to re-direct my "local files" saved in the Thunderbird profile to point to a location on my secondary D drive where I have more space?

Many of the emails are for business and so we do need to keep them for past referencing. Not often, but they need to be retained Any suggestions would be most helpful!

I am running 4 email addresses (3 hotmail.com and 1 live.com) on TB 102.15.1 (64 bit) - Windows 10. About a month ago I upgraded TB was unable to send anything no matter what Server settings I used - tried every combination - so I downgraded back to Version 102 and everything went back to normal. About a week ago, one of my hotmail accounts started giving me a "fail to log in" message. The other accounts work fine. The "fail to log in" will go from 2 or 3 times to 15 to 20 times in about an hour or so but every time, sooner or later will work and then it will be fine for a few hours and then start again. I have had these accounts running on TB for well over 10 years with no problem and I have not changed anything in the Server settings or anywhere else. The account I am having the issue with has been running on TB since TB started with no problems until now. I assume that TB may be having some issues with the Outlook platform but I have not changed anything there either and I have no problem logging into hotmail.com directly. I have spent many hours combing the internet for hints to no avail - everything I have tried has either had no effect or screwed things up so I had to back track to where I started. Any ideas???

I have a bunch of content in my Local Folders: Junk mailbox but none of it is showing up in Thunderbird. The Properties for the folder shows "Number of messages: 0", "Size on disk: 3.4 MB". I've tried the "Repair Folder" button but it makes no difference. The folder views as empty in Thunderbird.

Not sure when this started happening because I don't recall having this problem in the past. The folder permissions are the same as all the other mailboxes:

ls -l Junk* -rwx------@ 1 uid staff 3578520 23 Feb 08:51 Junk* -rw-r--r--@ 1 uid staff 3289 24 Feb 12:39 Junk.msf
