There must be a post on the site, but I tried via Google to see if I could figure this out and no luck. If there is a post, please direct me to that information.

I have many email addresses that I use on Thunderbird and I love the program. I have rules setup for each account. The rules files are huge and my question is, is there a way to merge all of my rules files together? I find that each account I end up setting up the same rule as another account. If there is a way to merge them together and in a perfect world, remove the duplicates (I do not know what it would do if it had duplicates in it) and that way I could copy that for every mailbox.

Thank you for your help.

Sometime back a few years, verizon sold to frontier communications, but allowed those of us who had a verizon email account to still use the verizon.net email, but had to access it through AOL. As longs as I go to AOL or use the AOL app, I can just use my username.verizon.net and password and get email, but I really have always liked the idea of downloading the email to my laptop for many reasons. AOL wants me to use their app. So, I try to setup my email address from username.verizon.net and the Thunderbird states that it has found the configuration, but it is unable to complete the task and just tells me it's a possible wrong password, username, or configuration. It is not, and I'm wondering if it's trying to get it via Verizon instead of AOL? Now, Verizon is full force into mobile phones and email accounts again, but through their own Verizon web site , not AOL. My question is: HOW do I setup my verizon.net email using Thunderbird to download it from AOL? It isn't working through POP3 or IMAP.

When displaying grouped inbox I changed the View -> Sort By setting to "Grouped" from "Unthreaded" (I'm translating these names from Polish so might not 100% match). After that change Thunderbird freezes when starting it. I can run it in safe mode but as soon as I click on grouped inbox folder it freezes again.

Is there a way to reset View -> Sort By settings for this folder somehow without displaying it? E.g., from config editor?

I tried setting mailnews.default_news_view_flags and mailnews.default_view_flags to 0 but that didn't help.

Moved from old Thunderbird 91.11.0(64bit) on Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon to a newer computer using Thunderbird (same) on Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon. Prior "move to" feature no longer works. Have three POP email accounts and twenty mailboxes under Local Folders for those emails arriving in my Inbox(es) that I want to save.

Prior could drag-n-drop messages from one folder to another AND also use the right-click menu "move to" to repeat or select a new mailbox to transfer emails into.

Now the actions both of drag-n-drop and "move to" menu appear to function; BUT, there is NO ACTION accomplished. The email remains in the original mailbox and there is no change in the target mailbox. So move message "Hi there" from main Inbox to "Family" mailbox yields NO "Hi there" message in "Family" mailbox as it is still sitting in the main Inbox. All other functions of Thunderbird email processing so far have been functioning just fine.

I also tried the mailbox repair of the source and target mailboxes with no change. I do not use IMAF at all since I POP fetch the emails and delete them off the email service servers. I have scoured the user settings to try and find if there was some setting somewhere in vain. I have also looked into AddOns in case there was a solution there. I keep my saved emails organized by a set of mailboxes; but, have lost that critical ability in the new installation.

I am scripting the creation of e-mails using the command line

-compose ...

and now trying to incorporate embedding certain images. I created a routine to encode the images in base64 and build the proper HTML img tag to include in the 'body' argument.

It works flawlessly for png and jpg images, but bombs for bmp, tiff, gif, ... and am trying to understand why. Is this a limitation of the command line? Is there something I've missed in the documentation somewhere?

I've validated with online source that the output HTML is accurate. I've even saved the output as an HTML file and it renders just fine in any web browser, it is just the 'thunderbird -compose -body ...' that can't seem to handle it.

I am running the latest version of Thunderbird (installed a fresh copy today).

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear it.

Thank you.

Thunderbird version 102.3.1 (32-bit), Windows 10 (up to date). 4 core 64-bit system, 16GB of memory.

Intermittently, Thunderbird (TB) will start consuming an entire core of my 4 core system, or 25% of cpu time. While this is happening, the throbber (the spinner on the mail toolbar between the "tag" and "add a task" icons) spins continuously. While this happening, the system is sluggish.

I've seen other reports where the suggestions are:

- compact all folder (done)
- remove all the .msf files in the profile (done)

It has gotten to the point where I don't only run TB once or twice a day to download mail and check the calendar.

Any other suggestions or tips, or any other information that I can supply to help resolve this issue?

Hello,

i'm using Thunderbird for almost 16 years (and therefore i have a huge email database wich in definitely dont want to loose). Now i have a unfortunately problem: Facts: - PC with sufficient RAM, Windows 10 with all updates - latest version of Thunderbird (102.3.0) - different Emailaccounts (gmx, gmail) - no Antivirus software, only buid-in Windows firewall

Thundebird (wich i really appreciate) updated to 102.3.0 (while i was opening the browser manually). So i and Thunderbird opened the browser at the same time. No clue whether this is the reason for:

Thunderbird now crashes every time when i open it. It does nothing but as soon i click into the thunderbird window it says "thunderbird doesn't react" (wich is true, i waitet one night ;-(

I tried to: - copy back different backups of the profile-folder (one week old, another approx one month old) wich were backuped BEFORE the automated update to 102.3 - uninstall and reinstall current version von thunderbird - install some older versions of Thunderbird (they were always claiming, that the profile-files were modified by an newer version of thunderbird and they can't read them) - tried the current stand-alone version - created new profiels with the above described versions of Thunderbird and then copying the backup profile files into that - manually reduce the inbox-file in size (removing the mails of approx. the last 2 weeks) - removing all *.msf-Files bevore starting Thunderbird - removing the global-messages-db.sqlite bevore starting Thunderbird

Everything with no effort. Thunderbird frezes everytime.

I will spend 100 € (!!!) for a hint wich makes my Thunderbird working again, no joke!!!

To get my emails displaying a bigger font using the above technique, now 3/4 of my screen is the newly expanded 'Folders' and menu bar and list of pending emails. How to just automatically 'Ctrl+' the incoming mail font? I want *only* the email contents to be bigger. We already have two accessible font control buttons but nothing for this. How can something so basic be overlooked?

In the last week, I've had a couple of emails being resent to their original recipients again, without my knowledge and without my setting up a future send time/date. My email client (runbox.com) doesn't offer delayed send options, so I believe the problem is coming from Thunderbird. Is there a way to check, and a way to stop it? One of the re-sent emails was resent 6 weeks after it was originally sent, and the subject has long been resolved and finished; it was embarrassing to have the recipient think I was raising the issue again.

I only know about 2 emails being resent (one twice, one once) which is itself odd, as they were originally sent to different addresses and on different dates.
