Hi

I have TB 78.2.2. I'm new to it. I have set up about 20 emails using POP accounts and a Global Inbox and Local Folders. I don't want IMAP.

All of them have the following setup: - Check for New Messages at startup - Check for new messages every 2minutes - Automatically download new messages

I also made sure that the "Include this server when getting new mail" is checked in ADVANCED menu.


However, I'm not receiving emails unless I manually click on "Get messages" at the left top corner. Am I missing something??

Thanks

I am using a new freshly installed Win10. Since copying the profile from my work PC was not an option, I decided to just set up all my mailboxes from scratch. The first day, everything was fine, but starting from the next day thunderbird started crashing all the time. It will load, partially check the emails and then crash.

I waited for the latest update - didn't fix it. I removed the old profile, installed and set everything up again - and got the very same behavior. My thunderbird doesn't last even 30 sec working.

There are no addons or dictionaries. It's totally clean. There are only 3 mailboxes with a lot of emails in them. Please, advise how to fix it.

Thanks in advance!

Windows 7. The PROBLEM is Gmail is blocking my Thunderbird login from the wired PC. Over a few years I've used the Windscribe VPN to connect this wired PC, then on exiting the VPN my "internet access" has reverted to my "named-by-me" home network. My main workhorse here is a PC wired to the router but in the house there are 2 laptops and 2 cellphones and 2 printers all on a wifi network. The printers are wired to this pc but wifi to the laptops. Everything still works, the laptops report, as always, "named-by-me" as the internet access. Everything still prints when called for. The phones still do calls and data over the wifi. OTOH this workhorse wired PC fails to report the regular "named-by-me" as the internet access, instead it says "Windscribe IKE V2". I've been all through the Network and Sharing Center by myself and with an ISP tech. He says the problem is I somehow disconnected from the home wifi network. And then he couldn't help me. I even uninstalled Windscribe and rebooted. No change.

in my thunderbird emil the folder of the sent message is gone!

I read in the forum and i just tried this solution:

"SOLUTION: In the account settings for "Copies & Folder" under "Place a copy in", uncheck the default "Sent folder on " and check the "Other" option, then select the Sent folder from the drop down along side. I suspect this problem is because the PlusNet setup places the Sent folder as a subfolder of the Inbox not alongside it. I am assuming the default option is not expecting this."

without any effects

Dear Community,

after installing the new version of Thunderbird, some optics changed. And entering recipients in terms of To:,CC:, BCC: changed. You cannot have the entries any more in separate lines, but they all have to be entered in the same field, much like some MS Software.

I think, it has been nicer the way it was before. Is there some configuration option to return to that behavior?

Many thanks and regards

I've recently begun migrating back to Thunderbird after a farily long hiatus.

My trouble is - when I added my largest IMAP email (GMail) I ended up with surreptitious emails in my local Archive directories.

The Archives are set up to archive into one folder per year. They only archive when I manually trigger it. At least, that's what it's supposed to do, I think.

When I added the GMail account, I ended up with a goodly handful of unread messages in the Archive folders. They're all dated from 12/31/1969. They're all completely blank. They specifically landed in the 2016, 2018, and 2019 folders.

So my question is - are these messages real messages? Are these other, older, intended-to-be-archive messages, are they overwriting what I have in the archives, or..? It seems that since they came out of the blue, that anything might be possible.

Hi. I have a situation i my office like that: I have 5 multiple profiles on Windows 10, for 5 diffrent employees. Mozilla Thunderbird is my main email program. Each employee have configured 3 email accounts: Main company mail, sales mail, and specific mail with their surname and company domain. So the 2 main email accounts are the same for all of employees (and for all Windows profiles), only third is diffrent. I have many emails on main account, and small SSD drive. I think you all know, where it is going :) I want this two main email account to be shared for all the Windows profiles, because when emails comes, they are repated on disk 5 times (for all Windows profiles). I already tried to copy this two mail email accounts to a folder that can be accessed from all the Windows profiles, and set proper path in Thunderbird settings, but every time when I logged out form one profile, and logged in to another, Thunderbird started to recieve ALL of emails. How can I configure this two main emails to by shared accross the Windows profiles?

Hi the community :)

I I've been using TB for a long time. I search a mean to parse mail file (like INBOX, etc.) from outside TB. From "outside" I mean a Linux bash script which that I can manage myself. The goal is to extract the mail bodies and the same metadata as found in global-messages-db.sqlite (aka gloda) which would be presented in clear (without problems with accents and encoding). So I tried to write some scripts with commands like (g)awk, tr and others. Quickly I realized that between the different MIME encodings (content-type and content-transfer-encoding), character sets (Unicode or not), RFC standards that have changed (before we could write a content-type on several lines as explained here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/31237198/is-it-possible-to-include-multiple-crlfs-in-a-http-header-field), the multipart mail (multipart/mixed etc.) it was a huge mess to parse. So I asked to myself if I wasn't reinventing the wheel and a better possibility existed....

I know I could parse the source code of TB to determine what goes on behind the scenes when I view the contents of an IMAP folder for example but I don't know where to start. Mainly I wonder if I can not directly use the functions of an SO library (under Linux) from outside of TB

This is why I ask you who read me if you know a solution to guide me in the right direction.
