I did this many years ago on an old PC but don't remember how. I have a new laptop and I'm trying to import my Outlook PST archive to TB. It contains 30 years of important emails. I'm trying to get away from MS's Office - it's become too expensive.

I tried to use TB's tools>import>import from Outlook but I get an error message saying "no profile is found".

Can I do this within TB or do I need a 3rd party app? If so, is there a reliable one?

Thanks in advance.

Thunderbird v31.4.0 Linux Mint Debian Edition 3.1.2-amd64 Cinnamon 2.0.14

When clicking on a link within an email, the system crashes and the monitor display displays jagged, diagonal lines. A cold boot is required. This can be repeated.

Same results running in Safe Mode.

Any ideas?

In a world where respondent's often draft messages about a new subject by lazily replying to messages on an old subject, does anyone find Threading helpful? Why is it now the default.

After View/Sort by/Unthreaded then propagating that by "apply current view to all folders." All folders do in fact sort by unthreaded. But if I create a new subfolder it defaults to sort by threaded. Please, is there anyway to entirely disable Threading?

I have spent the last two days trying to re-establish receiving/sending emails on my Apple MacBook Pro using Thunderbird without success. This problem developed suddenly about 3 or 4 days ago and only affects the MacBook, not any other device (I have an iMac and two iPads). I have gone through the instructions in Thunderbird's support pages and those in Mozilla with no success.

How do I fix this please? Would the easiest way be to simply delete the account xxxxxxx.gmail.com from Thunderbird on my MacBook and re-instate it by adding it back in?

All the setting for IMAP and SMTP are correct and the username/password is identical on all my devices.

Hi,

TB 91.5.0 on Windows 10 (with profile folder excluded from virus scan)

The latest update to seems to have resurrected a problem with saving copies of sent emails. Sending works fine, but copying of the sent email to the sent folder causes the send dialog to hang. Disabling the "Place a copy in:" option in account settings eliminates the problem. Using the "Other" option to place it in a local folder works *that is not part of a unified folder* works OK.

I have tried repairing folders and deleting the sent files inside "smart folders" in the profile, with no luck.

Gmail refuses to allow Thunderbird to connect as it is "less secure" app. I used to have access using a "app password" but now even that does not work. Microsoft will be doing something similar this fall. So ThunderBird will not be able to work with Microsoft or Google mail servers. I installed OWL as a temporary work around, but I have multiple email accounts on several domains, and "ModernAuth" seems to use a web access and cookies, which means only ONE email address per domain can be used. What is the work around?

A few days ago I got error message from Thunderbird: "Sending of password for user crangard65@gmail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.

Later the same day, after shutting down PC, got into Thunderbird without any problem. Has been OK for a few days then yesterday the same error appeared. I have no problem accessing my gmail directly via Firefox using my usual username and password.

Any suggestions?

Operating system is Linux 4.15.0-163-generic and Thunderbird version is 78.14.0, Build ID 20210901192859

Thank you.

Starting on June 1, when I tried to use Thunderbird, I have to log into my Gmail account. I enter my email address and password and the next screen states: "Sign in with Google", which I do. The last screen in the process is "Mozilla Thunderbird Email wants to access your Google Account". I click on Allow and then the following message appears: "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.google.com"

When I go back to Thunderbird and click on "Get Messages", I am put back into the Login loop, including 2- Step Verification..

I've used Troubleshoot Mode, I've cleared the startup cache, but neither has resolved the problem.

I can use account1 - [user name]@hotmail.com (download, read, delete, messages), but I no access to account4 - [user name]@gmail.com. I have no idea what account2 - Local Folders relates to.

On June 2 during a 2-1/2 hour unproductive session with a good computer technician I've been using for probably 10 years, Security Alerts were sent to account1 - [user name]@hotmail.com (as set up as a security step in Gmail): "2-Step Verification turned on", "App password created to sign in to your account", "App password used to sign in was removed", etc.

I have personally spent over 8 hours over the past 3 days exploring solutions suggested to other users with a similar problem but nothing has helped.

I have checked for stored passwords; there are none.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Thank you very much for you help! I will save whatever is left of my sanity!

Hi, I want to use Windows Task Scheduler to send command line emails via Thunderbird.

I have found only: thunderbird -compose "attachment='C:\first.txt,C:\second.txt'"

This works. But I also want to include email to, subject, text body and send.

I have tried options like Blat. Blat works but not with gmail.com as they block it. So with Thunderbird installed locally I may be able to work around the new gmail restrictions.

Many thanks.

I need to log SMTP traffic when I send a piece of mail from Thunderbird. What I see in my pop3.log.moz_log file is SMTP traffic when Thunderbird downloads mail from the server. But I do not see the SMTP traffic when I send a piece of mail to the outbound server. When I look at previous logs, I see SEND records in a log from 2020-03-02. Did something change in the SMTP logging? I am running Thunderbird 91.8.0 64-bit in Windows 10 Professional 21H2 64-bit.

My school IT dept. has just disabled POP for all users, in their Outlook based system. I've only ever used POP, and I've organized all my mail locally in TB for decades, across dozens of email addresses. I avoid IMAP because I don't want my folder structure replicated in the cloud, and I don't want any of my data left on the server for more than 90 days. I also always use "place replies in the folder of the message being replied to", so I don't want anything messing with my Sent folder, or any other default folders. And I don't want any server side app with the ability to delete mail or make any changes to my local system. I hate webmail, and avoid using it completely, except for emergencies, so that's not a good option for me.

Now I have to set up IMAP for my school email, if I want to keep using TB for it, which I do. The existing account has been in TB on POP for 8 months already, and I don't want to split up my current activity from my history. I've never even set up IMAP before. How can I get IMAP set up to get as close as possible to the POP experience I prefer, in all the ways listed above? Has anyone come up with any clever strategies or workarounds? Are there any current features of IMAP that can minimize the impacts of all the downsides that made me decide to never adopt it from the beginning?

Thanks for any help with this.
