Until up to about 1 month ago emails sent from my AOL account to my wife's Thunderbird email never get received. I don't get any error messages on either end. Thunderbird gets emails from many other people but not from my AOL. I can send emails from my Gmail account and she gets them. Any help please.

Down loaded update on Feb 2. What received was a virus with a 888 845 9852 number supposed to be Microsoft. I checked the number it was reported as spam. I called the number just for grins, Nancy wanted me to go to th help.info and turn over control to a “technician” so it could be repaired. In strong terms I explained to Nancy what she could do with her web site. I replaced HD and installed back up from external hard drive.

I want to leave all my messages on the mail server but also download them (and all attachments) onto my laptop so that I have a copy in both places (also I can then access them when offline). Older versions of Thunderbird had a checkbox on the server page to select leave messages on server (and also optionally specify a number of days). This option is either missing or moved in the current version. Is this feature still available?

I've been using Outlook to send and receive email for my AOL account for about ten years. Last October, a bug occurred on the AOL site, "temporarily" removing users' ability to generate a 16-character server password. This did not create a problem for me until I changed my AOL email password a few days ago. Now I can see my old email in Outlook and I can view new email via iPhone, Thunderbird or the AOL website, but I can no longer send or receive email in Outlook. This has happened to a lot of people in the last three months, and no one at AOL seems to want to fix the problem.

I saw the following remark from someone who was in a similar situation:

"The only fix I have found is to use Thunderbird. Thunderbird allows you to manually switch the server authentication to Oauth so it can use your email password instead of an app-generated one."

That made me curious enough to download and set up Thunderbird V102.7.1 (64-bit), and it does allow me to view my recent email. My goal is have the same viewing experience as I had with Outlook; that is, an Inbox folder in the left margin for recent email that requires follow-up, and about 240 other folders where I'm storing receipts, business conversations, and anything else that I may one day need to look up.

To that end, I was hoping that the "easy" way to do that would be to:

1. Find a software product that will convert my Outlook PST files to a format that TB can import 2. Import the converted files into TB

The first problem I'm hitting with that approach is that when I select Import from Outlook in TB, I get a bright red "No profile found" message. Does that message mean that TB is looking unsuccessfully for something in my Outlook installation? Does it mean that TB is looking for one of my profile names (e.g. "Default-User") instead of Outlook? Or do I perhaps need to create another profile in TB and name it Outlook?

I haven't tried converting PST files yet, and I may wait on that until I have an answer to the import question.

OK, one other question, and it involves a very low-tech approach to solving my problem. It would go something like this:

1. In Outlook, move all email from Inbox folder to a new folder named "000 - Temp" 2. In Outlook, pick a folder, e.g., "Amazon" 3. In Outlook, drag all email from the Amazon folder to the Inbox folder 4. Wait for the Inbox folder on the TB email page to "find" and display the email that was just moved there 5. Create an Amazon folder in TB and move the messages from TB Inbox to TB Amazon 6. Repeat steps 2 thru 5 for every folder in Outlook

I already know this would be painfully slow and tedious. My question is, will the TB Inbox actually find and display messages shortly after I move them from one of my other folders?

OK, end of Part One. Thanks in advance for input, suggestions or laughter.

Good day, I am using Thunderbird for mail on Kubuntu linux and have two separate IMAP accounts configured. One of the mail accounts is a Microsoft account. This has worked perfectly for several years. After upgrading to 102.7.1 (64-bit) yesterday, I can no longer access new mail on the Microsoft account. My other IMAP account continues to work as usual, so the problem appears to be specific to the Microsoft login. When attempting to retrieve emails I receive the following error - "Authentication failure while connecting to server outlook.office365.com. " I continue to receive emails from this account on my phone and if I use the webmail interface, so there appears to be an issue with Thunderbird / Outlook server configuration. Please let me know if there is any information I can provide that will help solve the problem.

Problem 1. Thunderbird takes up more and more space on the C drive. Currently 179 GB (!) I don't know what is the reason, I have 4 mailboxes

Problem 2. For about 8 months, the Organize Folders command has not been performed. Initially, a message appeared due to insufficient disk space, unable to organize folders. I repartitioned the drives and added 50GB to the C drive. Thiderbird suggested tidying up the folder to save 1.1GB of space. I gave execute many times but once the next day there was a message 900 Mb and the next days again 1 or 1.1 Gb. So the folders could not be organized

Problem 3. Some e-mails do not load properly and in the place where the content is, there is either the code itself (although the content was previously shown) or everything is empty and the message cannot be previewed - even then the sender information is invisible - only the title of the e-mail content is visible. After entering the mail on the server (not through thuderbird), however, you can see it

A handful of mail subfolders have mysteriously converted to behave like DRAFTS folders. Their icons have changed from a folder to a doc page, the "folder" now sits atop the alphabetical listing instead of in the proper place within the alphabetical list of the subfolders, and all messages stored within now carry the designation "This is a draft message," even though all mail within these converted/perverted folders are copies of sent messages. I have made no changes to their properties leading up to these phantom conversions, nor have I made any changes to any mail account DRAFTS folders since I originally set up the various email accounts several years ago. These inadvertently converted folders are not listed as designated DRAFTS folders when I check the mailbox settings. But in the folder list, they have the same attributes as my designated DRAFTS folders. I double-checked to see if the phantom conversions can be sourced to my email accounts hosting platform but the folders are correct at that source. It seems to be a bug within Thunderbird. I wish it were simply a right-click/command-click on the folder to redesignate it as a storage folder...but I cannot diagnose the cause nor discern the solution.

I recently updated my system (OpenSuse15.4) which included a Firefox update to version 109.0.

I regularly use my mic for google voice, however even though I can select my microphone in Google voice, It never shows any input.

I tested my mic in other apps and it works fine. When I pull up my systems pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol), it does not show firefox in the recording tab like it used to when using Google Voice.

To test to see if it was a Google Voice error, I also tried testing my mic at https://mictests.com/, and zoom.com, but after selecting my desired input device, mictests.com was also unable to record anything, and again, pavucontrol did not show anything being recorded.

I have attached an image of pavucontrol that shows audacity recording audio. Normally, I would also see Firefox in this window when using the mic.

Every time I start Thunderbird version 102.7.0 during the day I have to enter each accounts password. Or when TB recheck mail on a cycle of 10 minutes I have to do it again. The saved password table is all ways empty whether I say save password or not. I can only say this is a new bug because older versions you only had to log into user accounts with password only one time after the account was created and never again. The saved password table has no manual way to enter password into the saved password table. This needs to be corrected to the old method of doing things because this is such a pain that it will drive away TB user to use some other email reader.

But when composing while in the combined Smart INBOX, where I usually am, TB **always** uses email B, which is unwanted. A is set as default in SMTP, is the first account in the account folder list and the first account in the combined Smart INBOX. I do not find any other possible settings to influence which "From" address he picks when composing messages from a combined Smart INBOX.
