Hello,

I think I already asked for this, but I have an account at amis.net and Thunderbird does not even open the connection 99% of the time. When clicking on "Get messages" nothing happens?

Why is that?

Best regards, Igor

I've noticed in version 102 that when I send an S/MIME signed email that I get "Digital Signature is Not Valid" errors. This happens on the copy I received that is BCCed, but not on the copy saved in the sent folder. I have verified with the recipient that they get an error when they read the message.

I launched Thunderbird 102.6.1 into Safe mode, and the problem persisted.

The certificate is good through 2025.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

This is a Wish List item but I can't locate where to place it ;-) On the basis that I have Folders for Companies and Individuals based on their email addresses, I require different signatures for each Folder. This was a feature in the Virtual Access email software, where when a folder was the 'active' or highlighted folder, you used the 'Signature' icon or menu option, whereby you created the 'Signature' for that particular folder. So for my friends my signature was 'All best, Jonathon' or for my family 'Love, Dad' or 'Love, Jonathon' for acquaintances or companies, a signature that included my address and contact numbers.

My Thunderbird Email was badly damaged (I lost most of my files) when Apple updated to Ventura. Can I download Thunderbird again somehow? Will it work on Ventura from Apple? Apple wants me to trash the damaged Thunderbird, but then I would lose all the files there. I am not very computer savy. If not, any help is appreciated.

In the recent versions of Thunderbird (102.2.x, 102,3,3, 106.0b5, and possibly earlier) searching messages no longer works on my home system.

On the main message screen, the Quick Search field used to let me quickly filter out messages with a subject or sender matching whatever I put in that field. It would in fact start filtering matches as I'm typing. This no longer happens, with multiple email addresses (such as GMail, or my ISP).

If I bring up the full search dialogue while on a folder from one of my email accounts (so that it should be able to guess which account I'm searching in) the "Search for messages in" field is greyed out. with the text "No available folders".

The thing is, my work computer with Thunderbird 102.2.0 still has functional search (both Ouick Find and the full search dialogue).

I've migrated Thunderbird profile with lot of local folders to a new Windows computer, and almost everything works fine. However, few folders are shown empty in Thunderbird, and they certainly have some mail - I can see it in the corresponding files. When I look at a problematic folder properties it shows that its location is different from the actual file - some random 8 letters, and Thunderbird created an empty folder with this name. I've tried to remove folderTree.json, folderCache.json, and even global-messages-db.sqlite, and restarted the Thunderbird. The properties of the folder remain the same and the directory with wrong name is created again, and the folder remains empty. Other mail folders are fine - the emails are rescanned.

Where the mapping from local mail file name to Properties/Location is stored? I cannot find it with grep - the only reference I've found was in the files I removed, but the mapping somehow persists.

Hello, I have seen similar reports on that issue here and elsewhere. What surprises me is that if I right click on the sent folder and select properties, it still gives me the right number of messages in that folder.

In fact, If I go to ~/.thunderbird/my_profile.default/Mail/pop.gmail-2.com/Sent.sbd/2023 and open that file with whatever text editor, file 2023 contains all messages sent. I have tried repairing that file, then restarting TB to no avail. Is there a workaround ?

I am trying to migrate to Thunderbird from Outlook 2010.

I am using the TB import functions for Outlook on a machine with outlook installed.

All of my mail messages come into TB correctly except those in my "Sent" folders (email I have sent to others). In >90% of these, the email address I sent From and the addresses I sent To are all replaced with text names. This makes it impossible to "reply all" for example as the entities that should be addresses are only names.

A suggestion was previously made to turn off the Thunderbird option to Display address Book names instead of email addresses for contacts in your address book, but this option was already off.

I am about to try deleting my address book in Outlook and then import again and see if this "breaks any links" that might be existing in Outlook.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make these email import correctly?

Has anyone else noticed this behavior in the Sent mails folders when importing from Outlook?
