This is the second time I have asked this question. I am no longer able to get my messages from Yahoo. I called Yahoo per the advice of someone who answered my first question. This did no good. The Yahoo guy said it is TBirds problem. So I am unable to use my Thunderbird email. Is there anyone who can walk me through a fix on this issue. I am not technically savvy but would like continue to use Thunderbird. To repeat the issue, when Tbird tries to get my mail, a window from Yahoo pops up but no email. When I try to sign into that Yahoo window, it does not recognize my password. I AM able to go directly to my Yahoo account, sign in, and see my emails. This problem seemed to start with the Tbird update just before the most recent one. I was hoping the recent update would resolve my problem, but it didn't. Thank you for any help.

Hello, I have recently changed my Host and in the process of trying to reconfigure my server details for my new mail account I accidentally removed my account, thereby losing all mails and folders including my customer database, which leaves me feeling bereft.

Looking at similar questions it seems that it is possible to restore the lost mails and folders but unfortunately I am not that savy with this stuff and find it all rather difficult and scary.

Are there any step by step instructions on how I can restore my account or simply get access to my lost mails and folders ?

Thank you very much for any assistance.

I have four individual accounts which were all listed in a combined inbox as well as individual account inboxes. After the update to 102.1.2, the unified inbox only contains emails from one of the accounts. The other accounts are still listed individually. Is there any way to fix the unified inbox so it includes all the accounts again?

I need to export my address book as in previous TBird versions (in my case, to a VCF file). The only option in vs 102 is to export (actually it's simply a backup) the entire account profile to a ZIP file. That doesn't get the job done. I need my address book in a format which can be input to my smart phone.

Hello. I did a "Search" in Thunderbird, but it seems to yield results of e-mails that have long been deleted and expunged. When the "results list" came up, I clicked on a few of the results which I thought had been deleted and emptied from Trash. After clicking on it, just a blank conversation came up. (So it seems it WAS deleted. Why is it appearing the search-results list?) Question -- (a) If the e-mail is really still there somewhere, then I can I access it? (b) If the e-mail is NOT there anymore, then I can I prevent the Search mechanism from showing non-existent results?

Thank you very much for the help!

Sincerely, J Rosenberg

If I reply to an email and then print out the result, why does the reply print in black and the original email in blue? It doesn't seem the same as the "marked as read" advice. If, before I reply, I print out the original email it prints in black. I'm using an Epson ET-2750 but appreciate I would have no problem if I used my Brother mono laser printer. Is there a way to have all printed in black on my Epson?

I have a filter to mark certain messages as read upon arrival (through Tools => Message Filters). This used to work fine until the last major upgrade of Thunderbird. Now the messages do get marked as read, but I am still getting a taskbar notification for a new message, which defeats the purpose of not being alerted to these messages.

Is there a fix or a way around this? I just need 'not to be notified about certain messages', something that used to be achieved by marking them as read automatically, but that doesn't work anymore.

I have an issue with trying to send emails to people. All emails I send end up in the Outbox, but never depart from the Outbox. I can't say that the emails are not received because the people end up contacting me. However, it may also be the text message I sent to them days earlier. Do all emails to be sent remain in the Outbox? Other than asking the people you've sent the emails too, how do you know if the email arrived? I had this set up by my service provider, so I know it was done right. He sent me his email and it arrived, but it may not be working for others. This sounds crazy, but how can you tell if email has left the Outbox? There has got to be a better way than contacting them.

I never had this issue with Outlook. However, I am tired of Microsoft controls so I'm done with their products.

Email Text Link Will Not Open ONLY in Thunderbird

New to Thunderbird (TB). TB v 102.1.1 (64bit) Mac Mini late 2012 macOS 10.15.7 Catalina.

Situation: My coach sent me a link to download a PDF. She sent the email with both an image link and a text link. I use "Choosy" as my browser, a nifty Mac App that allows me to choose any of my four browsers.

The Problem: I have normally been using Kiwi for Gmail v3.5.0. IMPORTANT: Both links work. The image link AND the text link are clickable. I also checked using MailPlane, another Mac App, and again, Both links, the image link and the text link were clickable.

However, only in Thunderbird does the "text link not work". The image link does work, i.e. it will open in my browser.

What I've done: > Cleared the cache > Open in Troubleshoot mode > Referred to this help link (nothing helped): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hyperlinks-in-messages-not-working > Tried Message Body "Simple HTML" ==> Only the 'image link' becomes an HTML clickable link. The text link remains as text. > Just for funzies: Copied the text link and pasted into Chrome, it opened the PDF. > Another for funzies: I copied the PDF link from my browser, pasted it into another account using TB, send the email with the "text link" to another account. batta-bing-batta-boom, the link showed up.

My Conclusion: I'm a bit mystified. There has to be some setting problem in TB. Because as I mentioned earlier, both the image link and text link open in my browser when using Kiwi for Gmail and MailPlane App. Only in TB the text link will not open.

Open to any suggestions. Please note: no biggie as the image link is clickable.

Hello --

I want to add a New List of some of my contacts and locate it under All Address Books. When I click Address Book > New List "All Address Books" does not appear in the "Add to:" dropdown, so that the only place to locate it is in Personal Address Book or Collected Addresses.

Can anyone tell me how to create a New List under All Address Books?

Thanks for any information.

Have used Thunderbird for years, decades even, on multiple PC's, family and friends, and home PC's. Even donated a few times over those years but this one has me stumped and honestly a bit miffed.

I got 102 update and it completely broke my 2 POP and 1 IMAP accounts. New Passwords, cleared files, all the business you find here and online. Saw someone revert back to v91 which I had prior. Did that, worked like a charm and the prior existing accounts that did NOT work; started working again instantly. Proves I had the right accounts/passwords.

Next day, launch TB and it's updated again to 102; hmm. Downgrade again a second time on 2 PC's and go my business. It's now been 4 days and I've put registry keys in, used Config Editor and did all the "do not auto update" things I've read and still, today after a long and wicked day; I find starting TB it's yet again auto updated to 102.

Help please? I'm an IT guy of over 30 years and this one has me stumped and doing side-eye and I don't like it. Is there an honest and true way to NOT UPDATE to 102? Sorry, upset and have never had an issue *ever* with TB these years but this one is quite annoying downgrading daily.

Thank you Ictinike (off to downgrade a 5th time)
