I hope someone can help me. Up until the last week or so, I have had no problem with my signature file in outgoing email. I've been using the same signature file for at least 5 years. Suddenly, Thunderbird is blocking my logo image in my signature file in all outgoing mail. Instead, it is showing my alternate text. I am using version 102.6.1 on Windows 10

Some emails I have received are being put into a Spam folder by Thunderbird but there is no Spam folder visible and they have [spam} inserted into the subject header and emaisl from this sender have never been received anywhere but my Inbox.

I have to search all messages to find out where the message has gone and it shows as in a Spam folder. I then have to flag it as Junk, go to my Junk folder and flag it as Not Junk before it appears in my Inbox.

I am using POP3 email accounts and Thunderbird 102.7.0 (64-bit) and have never had this issue before.

I have attached 3 screenshots showing: 1) The email on the account server showing that there is no [spam} in the subject title. 2) The email as picked up by Mailwasher Pro and as it is highlighted in green, this shows that Mailwasher Pro has identified it as friendly according to my Spam settings and again, no [spam] in the subject title. 3) The email in Thunderbird after I moved it into my Inbox but you can see [spam] has been added to the subject title!

I have looked at other posts relating to this so it definitely appears to be a problem and if I could at least see the Spam folder, I would have a temporary workaround until this is fixed so if anyone can tell me how to see the Spam folder, that would help at least for now!

Thanks.

Message archving on a local NAS

Hello everybody,

we use 1 commom email address (info@whatever.com with IMAP) and we want to free up space on the mail server by archiving older emails on a NAS, but we still want to be able to search them in TB. We managed to set up the local folder structure for all of us on the NAS. We have set up succesfully the same NAS folder fol all of us. Questions and problems are the following:

  1. the new content of the Local folder (located on NAS) was synched only after a TB restart. (one of us archived an email and the others saw it in the archive only after restarting TB) - but it is not a big issue, we can live with this.
  2. the problem appeared when Person 1 moved an email from the Local folder (located on NAS) back to the Inbox on the mail server. The email on the mail server was again visible for everybody (due to IMAP) BUT the archived email disappeared only from the TB of Person 1. The archived email remain for everybody else, even with TB restart.

As I mentioned before, our goal is to free up space on the mail server and keep archived messages somewhere else (on aour NAS for ex.) and reach all the email (from server and archived ones) with the TB search fuction.

Any ideas are welcome.

append-only mode for IMAP synchronization (prevent server from deleting messages)

Hi. I'm looking for a way to block message removal by the server in the IMAP protocol - the "(server) append only mode" (it should be still possible to delete/move message from Thunderbird).

Why? I see 2 main use cases:

1. The (corporate) server has message retention set globally (e.g. to 1 year) which "cannot" be changed. Users might want to keep their "important" email longer (and in addition, keep it in the same folders as before, not using the folders copy in the "Local folders" space).

2. Due to the unexpected situation - a server error, fire in a data center, a ransom attack, malicious email provider - all the email (or some of them) are removed from the server. Thunder would sync with the server removing the messages from the synchronized folder on a computer (sure, backup is good, but for the "silent action" - e.g. part of the emails deleted (or encrypted), it might take too long to detect that problem and still have a valid backup).


The are some (not perfect) workarounds, including:

- keeping old emails in the "Local folders" - two places to search (or many if you have a folder hierarchy with the automatic filtering)
- a separate, local IMAP server to keep an "append only" copy of the message (e.g. isync, offiline imap), possibly to be used by Thunderbird (instead of the upstream IMAP server)
- using POP3 (with its own downsides :) )


An obvious downside of the implementation in Thunderbird - which users of that feature have to be aware - is not doing any delete/move operations on the server (e.g. with the webclient or some other IMAP client). Nevertheless, to fulfill the aforementioned requirement it doesn't seem a high cost.

Questions: 1. Is it possible to achieve in Thunderbird itself? 2. Is there any API to help implement that as an extension? 3. Have you - by any chance - tried to implement that using the third party tools (e.g. a local IMAP server which is used by TB) and can recommend any solution? 4. (Bonus) Do you think it would be an useful addition to Thunderbird?

I've recently joined a committee which has about thirty members. They frequently e-mail eachother, and all their addresses appear on each e-mail (all too often in the 'to' box, I have to say). I've managed to shift them all into the cc box, but I would like to be able to combine them into an address book group. I've tried copying them out of the cc box, but that doesn't seem to work (because I can't select them all simultaneously). Is there a way to do this withot having to copy each address individually into a new address book group? Regards, Tim Dawson

Dear all, morning from Italy

I'm still finding the way to settle in Thunderbird app on my Mac Book Pro a Copany email that is from Outlook and Office365.

Even if i found the code for the setting, when the process is finalized it is possible to send an email well received for another personal account (i try in this way) but the sent email is not yet registered in proper folder in Thunderbird

The same is for an arriving email by third personal account

My necessity is to store all the communications cause important and cause i DON'T WANT use the web with Outlook.com page open on Apple.

Thank You so much for the attention and the support.


N.B. Let me sfecify is not the fist time i settle sucha kind of email company account.
