david Feb 8, 2023, 12:10:43 AM If I understand correctly, the two accounts will be visible in left side, each with separate inbox, sent folder, etc. You can toggle between the two by clicking the desired folder to access.

I don't necessarily need the 2 accounts side by side but merely the ability to toggle between the two

Someone send me an email with EXCEL attachment but the files I received using Thundermail mail client the attachments becomes symbols and cannot be opened. (see attached image)

The same email was also cc copy to my hotmail account and I can see the attachment from my hotmail which is an EXCEL file and I can open it and use it as normal.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Other files like PDF, JPEG are no problem.

This problem only happen in one of the people who send me the Excel file, other people who send me Excel I can read and open normally so far.

I am using Mozilla Thunderbird 102.7.2 (64-bit), running on a laptop running Windows 10 Home, Version - 22H2, OS Build - 19045.2486, Installed on - 26/‎07/‎2020.

When I try to reply to an incoming email that I have received, it fails and I get the message as per the attachment.

If I restart my laptop and restart Mozilla Thunderbird and try again to reply to the email, it is sent without error.

This problem has only been noticed in the last month or two.

My email address is [edited email from public] @ozemail.com.au. IINET is the service provider.

Many thanks,

Don

Seriously I spent over 2 hours now just finding out how to fix the email grouping in Thunderbird and getting run everywhere for tips that did not work.

Just geting told over and over on every tip site to go to each folder and click view then click unthreaded. Well guess what that did not work for me and I have over 100 mailboxes I am monitoring. The view thing did not work and I did that in more than 5 maiboxes which still remained threaded.

Well anyway and just so everyone knows. The view thing does not work for everyone and this may not either for everyone in all of time but it is much easier.

What you have to do if that is not working is click the very first button at the top of your mail list that when hovered over says "Display Message Threads". Actually try that first. One click and done (Or, 2 clicks and you are back in the same state. So do not double click. Just one click is good enough)

Then your messages will stop threading themselves.

Really just a tip that can save others hours I hope. Just click the first Icon above your mail list that when hovered over says "Display Message Treads"

Done, wish I had known this over 2 hours ago. Just click that icon at the top of the mail list. Then done no more grouping the emails.

Thunderbird is a great mail program. I hope it stays around for a long time. It beats Outlook 1000% lol yeah for realists there is no more than 100 so yeah 100. But if you listen to Sheldon Couper from the Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon there is no such thing as Zero so wow mind blown there could be 1000% haha. Just a joke everybody knows that zero is just a frame of reference so there is no way it does not exist but does it haha joking again.

Peace out

Hope that tip does help

Hello, I'm having trouble when I search for emails using the search bar in the top right corner. From the search result I usually open the most recent emails. The problem occurs if I try to open emails that I have already received or sent more than 2 months ago. When clicking on the email it does not open. Opens a new window, but does not open the email. If I open it directly through the inbox it works normally. The problem only occurs when I use the search bar. Does anyone know what could be going on? I've attached a screenshot of the window that opens when I click on the "old" email.

I am assisting friends. I am in the UK and they are in Gibraltar so am using TeamViewer. All the info relates to their PC. Using Thunderbird version 102.7.1 (32-bit). Only part of attached jpgs are displayed whether inline or when opening the file - e.g. 1.2mb of a 2.4 mb jpg or 1.3 of a 3.3 mb jpg. JPGs of 189 kb and 643 kb work fine. Clearing the cache solves the problem. However after restarting Thunderbird the problem reappears.

Have tried the following with no success: Creating a new profile Uninstalling Thunderbird Installing Thunderbird 64-bit Setting cache to 0 Setting cache to 50 They have reverted to the 32-bit version for the time being.

Strangely when accessing the imap account on my PC there are no problems.

My computer runs on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS 64 bit. I already installed the linux bridge software.

In the controlpanel of the hosting, I see that both the NS-records and the SRV-records do not point to protonmail.

Thunderbird version 102.7.0 is not working correctly or has wrong built in defaults. When creating a new email the (To field) does not look in the contacts file for email address starting with those entered characters to give you a choice to select from. This was standard function of older version of Thunderbird. Even after manual entering (TO field) the just entered email address is not being automatically added to the contact list like previous TB versions did. This is a real show stopper.

Some emails are not loading.

A few weeks ago they were visible and legible, now random e-mails after clicking are loaded as on the screen. No content and no information about sender, subject, etc. Interestingly, this e-mail on the server is visible through the website. Only downloaded is impossible to view. This is the inbox, it is always possible to locate this email in the outbox.

I am using Thunderbird 102.7.1 on Ubuntu 22.04. My work email address is on an what I'm pretty sure is an Exchange server (https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx) and I sometimes access this email through a Windows computer running Outlook, or through the webmail interface at outlook.office.com/mail, or through the Gmail app on Android.

When I send messages from Thunderbird, the configuration is to "place a copy in "Sent" folder on user@work.com on outlook.office365.com"

However, when I use Outlook or webmail or my phone, the copy is marked as a draft. Any thoughts on why this might be?

It makes things difficult as I can be unsure about whether I really did send the email and I also cannot reply to emails I have sent, so it is hard to maintain good threading of my email.

When going to look at my email one morning, Thunderbird seemed to have lost all my previous emails, except a random 6, all subfolders were missing and it wasn't downloading any new messages. There seemed no apparent reason for this what so ever, as everything was normal the night before.

It is fortunate I have a phone and iPad through which I can access emails, however, attaching or reading some documents isn't always simple on these devices.

I tried Googling solutions, but I'm afraid the jargon got the better of me. Data folder, ImapMail, POPs, MSF...no idea what they are or where to find them on my Mac. One said to go to Tools then select Account Settings. There is no such option in my Thunderbird Tools drop down list.

My brain is wired for arts and languages, not maths and technology, so this is all most frustrating, therefore I am hoping that someone might be able to help, please!

I have multiple email accounts set up, but one of those transfers all email to the local "Junk" folder. I have tried the retrain function, turned off all adaptive junk menu selections, added the sender to my contacts list, and nothing seems to work.

Also, with the most recent update, Thunderbird continually crashes. Version 102.7.1 (32 bit) running Windows 7 Professional with service pack 1. (No intention of updating OS)
