Thunderbird does not have 2 step security or I need someone to tell me how to put in 2 step security. I changed my password in the HOW TO DELETE OR EDIT PASSWORDS it worked. I think it worked. I quit. I used the new password when the notification showed to sign in. It did not work. I used the old password and it let me in. I went to saved passwords and the outgoing server is showing. The other password for incoming, or why Thunderbird saved two passwords of the email the same day is unknown but it was the same password when I changed both. Why I cannot sign in with the new password?

Hi!

I set up TB so that the Password Manager doesn't save my passwords (so I have to enter them every time I restart Thunderbird).

Recently, Yahoo! migrated towards OAuth2 protocol, which didn't give the same freedom. Once set up, I used the "change OAuth2 to Normal password in settings" method and it worked beautifully... until now. I can't use this method anymore, as TB warns that "Login to server imap.mail.yahoo.com with username blablabla@yahoo.com failed." again and again (I did check the account in my browser to make sure the password was the right one, remove the account from TB and set it up again). I can't access my mailbox (weirdly enough, that's the case for my yahoo.com address and not my yahoo.fr one, though I guess it's only a matter of time).

Is there a way for TB to delete automatically that OAuth2 token on exit, so that I'll still have to enter my password on start every time? Or is there another method to skip that OAuth2 login page and go back to "Normal password"?

There used to be some addons about passwords but they all seem to be obsolete.

I don't want to use a Master password or a app password, if possible.

Thunderbird 78.7.0 (32-bit) Windows 10 v. 2004 Kapersky 21.1.15

Thanks !

Last year Yahoo decided it needed better security. Mainly I use my PC (Windoows 10) or phone (Android) for email but now I have been asked to use the laptop again. According to my research the solution is to use SMTP settings of OAuth2 viz

"update the Authentication Method' for the Pop or Imap mail account.

  1. Select 'Menu app icon' > 'Account Settings'
  2. Select mail account name in left Pane
  3. Bottom right: click on 'Edit SMTP server'
  4. Set outgoing server (SMTP) 'Authentication Method' to 'Oauth2'
  5. Click on 'OK'
  6. Select 'Server Settings' for mail account
  7. Set incoming server 'Authentication Method' to 'Oauth2'
  8. Click on 'OK' 

Exit Thunderbird Wait a few moments for background process to complete Start Thunderbird"

Items 1 and 2 successful. Item 3 non-existant. Bottom right "Outgoing server (SMTP)" is set to Yahoo! mail smtp.mail.yahoo.com; there is no OAuth2 option. Further down on left is an option "Outgoing server smtp" but that opens the same windows as at bottom right.

Question: where do I find the option to set OAuth2 please.

TIA Anne

I cannot use OpenPGP encryption on one of my email addresses, because its private key does not appear in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting. Exactly, I can have added the private key through the wizard of the account setting, but there is no private key in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting instead of the private key appearing in the OpenPGP key manager.

The other email accounts are OK, i.e. I can use OpenPGP encryption on the accounts. The differences from the troubled email account are followings: - The troubled email account uses Ed255 not ECDSA algorithm. - Name of the troubled email account includes UTF-8 Japanese characters. - The troubled email account also registers S/MIME private.

Please give me advice on this problem. Thanks.

Gmail account no longer accepted on Thunderbird and Linux Mint 19.3

Hi all, I have been using Thunderbird on Windoze for decades, but am a Linux noob, so please be gentle!  :-)

The setup is Thunderbird v68.10.0 on Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, only switched from Windoze10 to Linux this week so I am still learning.

Gmail account was set up and working fine on Tbird on both Linux and Win10 until a couple of days ago, when Google "detected suspicious activity on my account" and demanded I change the password, which I did. Now when I try to access the Gmail account on Tbird Linux, I get the prompt screen to enter my email details, but when I add my email address it just refreshes the screen and asks for the email address again. I have tried entering my mobile phone number instead of the email address but same result, it just reloads the page.

I tried deleting the account (but not the data) from Tbird and reinstalling the account but same result. New password in Tbird are both working fine on Win10 so it is a Linux/Tbird issue -- or user error?

I saw other threads about manually changing the password in Options, but can't find the equivalent options in Linux, and don't think that would be the problem anyway because I am not getting to the 'enter password' stage. Any thoughts?

Cheers, Terry (Confused) Chadban

I see that Thunderbird is not deleting the cache on exit/shutdown. I wanted to see if this is a bug, if I have misconfigured, or if it is not supported. I thought this was functioning properly in older versions but I can't cite specifics to backup that claim.

I have set privacy.clearOnShutdown.cache to true. When I shutdown, the files still remain in the cache2/entries subdirectory inside of the profile dir.

To confirm it wasn't a corrupt index file, I closed Thunderbird, deleted the entire cache2 subdir, and restarted Thunderbird. The cache2 directory architecture is rebuilt on startup but when I close Thunderbird again, the cache entries still remain.

Should this work (delete cache on exit)? Did I configure it correctly?

I am running Thunderbird v78.9.1 on Win10, both 64 bit.

I am researching various ways of improving the security of my email. And I really like the ideas of pep:

https://pep.software/thunderbird/

What is the official word from Thunderbird on this? It seems to me that pep is able to remove some of the complexities of encryption much in the same way as Signal Messenger.

I can not find any information here when I search for it, so I got a bit curious.

Also, pep is available for almost any platform.

Hi, I installed Thunderbird onto new laptop last week. All working AOK until I added on a dictionary, so that spell check would work. After that, I can receive, but not send emails. I get this message;

  Sending of the message failed.
  Peer's Certificate issuer is not recognised.
  The configuration related to smtp.gmail.com must be corrected.

I checked my account server settings - same as former laptop. Ports etc the same. Question 1 - is installing the dictionary the cause of not being able to send? Question 2 - whatever the cause, what can I do to remedy this?

Please answer simply as I am not a super tech. My understanding of the certificate is its like a handshake between my laptop and other entities. Many thanks, Julie Grace

Hello, I have set up a master password on my Thunderbird client and it asks for it very time I open up Thunderbird, like it should. Unfortunately, I tried bypassing the password prompt and it is very easy : Thunderbird loads a window asking for the password, but by simply closing it, Thunderbird still boots up. Once it's open, you can see the accounts. It asks for the password again, but if you close it once more, you can access the inbox of an account. It asks for the password, you just close it and you can access the individual emails. It creates a huge security breach and defeats the whole purpose of having a password on my local client, being that even if somebody gets their hands on my computer and inside my session, they still can't access my email. Worse, it cannot work as a deterrent : if you open Thunderbird, see the password window and decide not to try to open Thunderbird, by closing the window, you will still access the inbox like shown above.

I use Thunderbird 78.9.0, which, I believe, is the most recent version.

Thank you for any help, Paul

I have been dealing with this issue for a long time. I tell Thunderbird to delete ll messages after 7 days, except for starred messages and NEVER does. I really think it has to do with Google servers to KEEP all messages for marketing reason, which really frigging pisses me off. I have set this time and time again and does not do what it is told. So I ask myself why are we even using this product when it doesn't work. I think the only way to get this to delete messages if I log in directly and delete them from there. Which makes Thunderbird look bad because it doesn't do what it is instructed to do. If you can not delete messages or retain your settings then either tell people or remove your software off the market. NOT IMPRESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is bad enough there are tons of garbage software on the market already.

Background information: we are exchanging emails with an institution, which has a central encryption gateway. This gateway is using one key (pgp@institution.gov) for every person. In the past it was easy with the user based rules to send pgp encrypted emails. Now starting with TB Version 78 I didn't find any possibility to encrypt the email to "mj@insitution.com" using the key "pgp@institution.com"

For me it is major degradation of the encryption functionality in comparison to enigmail. Am I the only one missing this? Is there a hack, which would help me to solve my problem?

On my Windows 10 PC, I use Thunderbird (TB) for four emails (3 are Gmail). For some reason one (and only one) of my Gmail accounts starting wanting password verification in TB. But when I click the 'next' button, it doesn't take me to the password page to confirm my password, it just erases my Gmail account name in the username field.

I'm not certain why it suddenly started needing password verification (and my other two Gmail accounts still don't). I've logged into the Gmail account on Google, and my password still works (haven't changed it). I updated TB to the latest version. I deleted the password in TB (hoping it would then let me reenter it). I finally deleted the Gmail account entirely from TB. When I try to add it back, it now only allows the inbox (not sent or templates folders). And it still keeps asking me to verify the Gmail password (but won't let me). I can see new emails received, but I can't send any.

Any suggestions?
