I added the Google Calendar with writing and read access using the Provider for Google Calendar add-on (https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/thunderbird/addon/provider-for-google-calendar/ by following the instruction here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/using-lightning-google-calendar. I can see the calendar and edit it, but when I receive an email with a calendar event I get a warning saying something like that " you do not have Calendar that has writing enabled", and I have no way to add the event to Google Calendar. Now by mistake I clicked on "hide this warnings in the future" so the warning is not there anymore. Therefore 2 questions:

1) How can I make sure I can add events I receive by email to my Google calendar?

2) How can I re-instate those warning so I can give you the right warning and I see them in the future?

Thank you a lot Best

Trying to add the file link server to my Thunderbird. I created the account at The Good Cloud....activated the account OK. Went into the settings in TB and added the link into the box....proceeded to "try" to populate the setting box....first off I couldn't cut/paste...web address, user ID, or passwords from my PW manager.....so added the details manually.....however I was never able to enter the password field successfully.....won't populate/accept. I know it must be something easy....but I can't find an online answer. Maybe you can send me a link....frustrating.

For some reason, this new version of Thunderbird (I think it is the one before 102.7.1) is placing emails in my junk folder, including messages I have not marked as junk. Before all the junk messages would stay in my inbox but they would be marked as junk. That is what I prefer. Now messages that are legit are somehow being put in my junk folder. Please please please help me to get Thunderbird to stop doing this.

Thunderbird outgoing server problem

I have 5 gmail accounts, each for a separate purpose. 2 accounts are working fine. 3 others have this problem. I'll call them a@gmail.com, b@gmail.com, c@gmail.com

When I configure the outgoing server ('edit smtp server'), there is a field for the user name, which is the email address, and the recipient sees this email address as the sender. Problem - with a, b and c - they all contain the same email address! So if I enter a@gmail.com for a, this is immediately replicated for b and c. So when I send email using c@gmail.com, it arrives as an email from a@gmail.com. This does not affect the other 2 accounts, which retain the correct settings.

There must be a setting somewhere - any ideas? My email is dkinston@gmail.com. If you know the answer - please email me!

Dear friends at Thunderbird

I support with a small donation each month, and now I have a question. I can not find the Danish support forum, as the Danish button leads to the English forum ...

But well that does not matter - I try in English and hope you understand anyway. I have this issue:

I delete mails that I have read and handled, as I prefer my inbox to be almost empty - but I often need mails I have deleted. But they a not kept in the "litter box".

The account is an IMAP-account. I have checked all settings both in Thunderbird and via cPanel. I can't find settings that ask the litter box to be emptied.

Is the a solution to this problem?

Kind regards, Hanne B. Stegemüller, Denmark

l.s., I use mail merge once a year to some 100 contacts each receive a personalized appendix file for which the file name was included in the CSV file. This does not work in the present version of mail merge. I cannot include in the message or in the merge window the label where mailmerge can find the filename. Ben de Wit 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.

I accidentally lost the menu bar but got it back temporarily reading the article. However,, I have been unable to get it back permanently because, contrary to the article, right on a empty section of the tab strip does NOT produce a popup menu to check.

Also, I have lost the threehorizontal bars on hte right.

I can print an email now but not when it is oped because the menu dissapears then

I finf this who menue and toobar subject very complicated and confusing. It was simpler in previous versions.
